I AM READY TO GET MY LIFE BACK...

Sunday, September 30, 2012

This blog will be short. Odd for me, but it doesn't make sense to ramble on when I really have nothing to say other than - I have failed. Back in June I got so tired of being on a stupid plateau that I finally gave up hope. I didn't know that I had given up, I just did it subconsciously.

I have now gained 10 pounds back and I'm feeling so crummy physically. Depression has set in. I have allowed myself to use many excuses. I keep telling myself I will start over on Monday. But when Monday comes, I have another excuse...

I am so tired of living in this body and in this sabotaging brain. It's really time to get my life back. I will again be following the ideas in Never Say Diet by Chantel Hobbs. I am going for a goal of 30 pounds lost by the end of 2012.

Nothing will get done without a plan so here goes.
- Eat smaller portions at meals.
- Drink 9+ servings of water.
- Eat slowly and don't graze between meals unless hungry in which I will choose a healthy snack such as an apple, cucumbers, a piece of cheese or nuts.
- Workout 5 times a week. No plan - just get to the gym and move.
- Work on the emotional issues that play into my food problem and depression.

Other than that, I don't have much to say until I actually have action to talk about.
Loosely quoting Art Williams, I will, "DO IT, THEN TALK."

    Never think of yourself as failing, it was just a set back. You realized that and now it seems that you have a good plan in place to achieve your goals. I'm sure that you will reach your goal this year.

    You haven't failed. You've gotten back up and back on track. It's a journey and not an easy one. I'm just glad to be sharing it with you.

    Wow Great plan! I love it.
    I do think you were a little harsh on yourself though.
    Don't get me wrong...it's great you are starting over.
    And I probably have no room to talk because I used to be that harsh on myself.
    But can you picture talking like that to your best friend. Harboring those ill feelings towards her? Probably not.
    I've come to a spot in my life where I really can see where I haven't been a very good friend to myself and I realize if I'm not my own best friend then others probably don't want to be either.
    So I think what your really mean to say is: I am so grateful that I only gained ten pounds. AND that I have commited to a new beginning. AND I am so proud of myself for doing this! Now I even feel good about this...
    LOL okay...stepping off the ole soap box....(we do need to stick together to support one another)
    BEST of Luck!
