Here It Goes

Sunday, October 02, 2011

Every time I start a new diet, I get real happy in the beginning. I'm so positive but then the first couple of days, I start doubting myself more and more. I'm I've never been able to stick with a diet before so the thoughts of what makes this time different pass through my head. So, I made a list of what makes this time different than previous attempts. Well, I have this site. If I ever start to doubt myself or want to give up, I know that there are people here for me to cheer me to my goal. That is the only difference that I've found though. I'm hoping that it will make all the difference. As I have stated in my profile, I have to lose 139 pounds and I plan on setting new goals for myself every 13 weeks. So my first goal is 20 pounds in 13 weeks and I will adjust my second 13 week goals depending on how much I lose the first 13 weeks. I'm also going to be doing Yoga to try and help control my stress levels. I am open to any tips on helping to control my stress levels or easy and/or quick exercises that make you feel better.

    Hmm, I never thought about it that way. Maybe, I'll give that way a try.

    if I could make a suggestion since I can really relate to giving it 100% and then fizzle out after a few days or weeks. My suggestion is not let the scale determine the success. Please find and share those non-scale victories along the way. How do you feel? How's the energy level? Are you moods better and more upbeat? Do the clothes feel better? Are you able to exercise longer and harder etc..

    I have been the worst at determining the success from the scale only and then toss in the towel when the numbers do not show the effort. I didn't take into consideration those non-scale victories.
