Dear me ...

Monday, March 13, 2017

When I first began my journey, are used to track all of my food, even a vitamin I would add to my meal plan. Since losing a good amount of weight I realize that I have not been doing my very best and tracking. I have been thinking that I can guess the amount of food just by looking at it. And all actuality this is a struggle because I feel like I have been eating more than I should have. Starting tomorrow I'm getting back on tracking my food, writing everything down, and measuring the way I am supposed to! I have made myself all over again, I have not gained a lot of weight but I can feel myself slacking and not paying attention to the things that I should be paying attention to! Exercising has not been my priority and I know it should be. I know that working out at least three times a week makes losing weight very successful but for some reason I just have not had the energy to want to work out. I have lost my mojo. I'm not really sure why, I just can't figure out why I am in this space! I'm not depressed or unhappy. Just unmotivated. Any suggestions?

    Losing the weight has nothing to do with lowering the calories or moving more...Nope, that happens when your lifestyle changes. And I mean your life, your lifestyle and all its contents. This takes work. Jotting everything down, measuring, eating this, not eating that, slacking a little, slacking a lot, working out 4 times a week instead of 3...those are all great intentions but they don't do what you must do. Changing your lifestyle.
    Socially, you need to change that. Hang out with people that are healthy conscious, not your regulars. Move around and surround yourself with winners, people who have what you want. That means, people that don't sit on the pity pot and bitch about how bad life is and don't do a thing about it, gossipers, un-motivated, unhappy, not healthy, dependent, etc...those are people that aren't winners. You want to be motivated, stick with people that are go-getters. What does your home look like? Is it cluttered, dis-organized? Even dirty? You know what to do, and do it. Donate, toss and straighten up. It will effect your brain and therefore will tap on to your journey...it will change everything if you live in a home to be proud of.
    How about treating people the way you like to be treated? This is huge.
    Make amends. You have people that you have harmed emotionally? Well then, you must apologize. And not by emails either. In person if you can do it and if not, a long letter by slow mail and then follow it by a phone call, or better yet, a visit, face to face.
    Oh, this is just a tip of the mountain you need to climb. And if you want to be successful, this is what you need to do. There is so many on the list of Change you must accomplish, and I think you must realize, it is only 3% of the population who venture on this journey to get healthy succeed. And of this 3%, they are the people that decided to roll up their sleeves and change completely their lifestyle. If you need help, you know where to find me. Best of luck, fredie.
    I like your user name,
    d3termined...I hope you mean it.
