Up Front And Honest With Myself
Tuesday, March 25, 2008
Well this is who and where I was in 2005 before I started eDiets. It did wonders for me and their advise and the support boards really helped me focus on losing just shy of 50 pounds and being at 125!
Now I sit today at my official restart of 130.8 pounds and so motivated with SPARKPEOPLE! I know it's ONLY 5.8 pounds. But after watching every pound go it's horrible to see the 5.8 back. Plus I have not been doing my strength training for almost a full year, I was just kidding myself I think.
I think I sort of went into panic mode, which lead to depression I think and lack of self confidence.
WELL I GOT IT BACK, OR AT LEAST I AM GOING TO TRICK MYSELF INTO THINKING I GOT IT BACK.
I had no idea how I let myself get up to 174 pounds. I was so disgusted with myself. It doesn't happened overnight it's one bad choice after another bad choice. Well it's time for one good choice and another good choice AGAIN! I know there will be some bad choices but it's time for the good to outweigh the bad and get back on track.
I know, I'm just talking in circles but I guess I have learned from my weight loss that the only thing that REALLY works for me is JUST DOING IT!!! Just getting up from off the bed and moving because once I start moving I don't want to stop so I just have to do it and the rest will fall into place. Same with my food, if I log it and MAKE MYSELF ACCOUNTABLE I eat well, if I don't I eat poorly.
Lastly I need to forget about the 3 B's which are my triggers....bills, boys and bratty teens and just focus on me and all the rest seems to fall into place when I do that.
I know how I operate, I have to look myself in the mirror everyday. So being accountable, focusing on me, and just doing it are my keys to success.
Onward to goal!
