One of those days where I try not to let the past effect my future. One of those days where I have to look more at the positives and less at the negatives. I can't prevent everything however I am working on to making a happy ending and its going to be that way! or else I will just have to get better at handling things on my own the way that they have been dealt to me! I am love and I am special and I am one of a kind! made by God!!!
Working on accountability. I have created a notebook to carry with me for when I am not close to a computer. I am really trying to make some changes. I want to reach my goal weight by the time that I am 35. That's in a year and 6 months! I need to lose 100bs to get there. I am going to get there!!!!
Thank You Dinie, I appreciate it. I am making sure that I take my time that is for me. We dedicate so much of ourselves to others and then we leave out ourselves. I used to think that it was wrong and selfish to think of myself but its not true. We have to put ourselves first in some perspectives in order to be able to help others we have to make sure that our health and sanity is in orders. We deserve to be healthy, fit and happy!
Hi: It is good to read your entries, you are really looking deep, that is so important and something we all forget to do. I am working on me again is good, it really hit home. Putting me first is so hard, but it is not selfish as I once thought, it is a healthy way to look at things. Me and my body are both gifts I need to respect. Good luck in your journal. HAPPY NEW YEAR.! Diane
I enjoyed reading your posts. Finding my Way Back - Joined SP in 2008 - now 2011 is heading towards over and HERE I AM AGAIN. Weight about the same as when I signed on in early 2010. So yes Finding my Way Back certainly fits my description.
I need to make some moves!!! I have goals and I need to break some sweats, eat within calorie range and stay positive! In the last few months my world has thrown me for a loop and now I am trying to make some choices to make some changes to better me! Things won't always be the same!!! some change you can't control.
Without commitment there can be no change..... I know that change takes commitment and dedication. I sometimes wonder why its taking so long to see progress, I really want this and want to be fit and healthy but its taking so long and I know that slow an steady wins the race. I am working on me and I will accomplish my goal. I know I will and I can and sometimes I have to give myself a motivational speech. I have to step up my game. Change up things and accomplish my goal.
I am doing the 17 Day Diet right now. I am on day 8 and its going pretty well. I did a weigh yesterday and I had gained 2 pounds but I am wondering if that is from my visit with Aunt Flo and hopefully when I finish within my next weigh in! So I am going to stay on track and keep moving along.
I am ready to lose this weight and truthfully sometimes it feels as though I am not getting anywhere....
I know it takes determination and commitment and I am working on it. I am so ready to get back down to a healthy weight. I am working on it. Its going to come off. I know my problem is that I want to lose weight faster than possible but I also know that slow and steady wins the race.. I want to lose and never gain back again. I know this time I must stick to the plan and its a lifestyle change and that I must put me first everyday when it comes to my health, eating and maintaining a healthy weight. I want to be one of the ones who has lost and maintained the loss to never gain it back and never lose control again. I know that I have lost many times before over and over again to gain the weight back. I know I have issues with depression and self esteem but I have come to terms with the issues so I can get to a point where I don't let food be my best friend anymore and channel my energy into exercise and more positive outcomes for me.
When I am sad, stressed or angry I eat! When I eat the food tastes good, but the end results are a full tummy, extra weight and then more of a sad feeling. So in end I wind up feeling worse than I did in the beginning. I vow to work on realizing my reasons for eating and make sure I am eating to nourish my body, not my mind and exercise. I want to be a healthy body! I am going to do this for me. I know I can.I want to succeed and not fail myself. I want to teach my daughter how to be healthy and make better choices for her body! It begins with me......
I am watching Ruby, Too Fat for 15, The Biggest Loser and its crazy that we have all of these shows for people who need and want to lose weight. Its motivating, sad and eye opening all at the same time. It makes me look at my issues of why I am overweight and think about some of my set backs through life. I know that I have some issues of my own. I am just going to have to open up more and just my blogs and my journal to get through them. I have to do whats best for me to get through this time of weight loss. Let go and release, get over it, lose this weight and move on. I want to lose it and never find it again. I have to know that it will make me better in the long run.
I had a good day. I started Lent yesterday, so I gave up some things, to help me do better in this lifestyle change. Its kind of discouraging though when I don't have support from others and they try to push things on me that I don't want or need and I am trying to do my best by losing. I have a co-worker who is trying to lose as well, she knows I have cut some things out and yet she keeps asking me if I have any chocolate. I am doing my best, I took some snacks with me (3 fruits) just to keep me on track. I am trying my best to stay on the right track plus I know that planning is the key....
I have a lot of emotions packed in and I need to get some things out. I think that my weight comes from trying to please others by taking care of them and not taking care of myself first. I have yo-yo'ed so many times that its not even funny. I really want to get a hold on this time around. I know that this journey is to be taken one day at a time.....
Thanks Julie! I know without action I can't expect any results and I am taking things one day at a time. This site gives me motivation and is helping me to open my eyes to do things the right way. No quick fixes. Its hard to lose and easy to gain. Thanks for being here. I appreciate your motivation.
I have spent the last two weeks being very consistent with my exercise but today I am tired. I really dont want to go but I am dressed and ready so I need to go run. I will feel better when I do. Get out there and do something today!
My workouts aren't coming along, I walked one day last week and I am aiming to do more this coming week. I am aiming to lose at least 5lbs now before St. Pattys Day! if more comes off that will be great. I know what to do and how to do it, its just a matter of doing it. I am going to get there though.
I was looking for my little journal here, so glad that I found it. I know I used to have another one but I don't know where it went. But here is to a new year and a new beginning. I want to make some changes. I want to get back down in size and healthy again. I know I have some work to do because it doesn't just happen overnight but its okay. I can do this, its best that I put forth some effort than no effort at all....Working on me! Cheers!
Okay so I was lost for a minute ,but I am making my way back to fitness. I started a challenge with myself yesterday to work on my Just Dance 2 routine for 21 days. I am doing the sweat program and I have to do at least 5 -6 routines a day to break my goal of 1,000 points.
