The past 3 weeks have been awful. Not only did I just totally go off plan, but I also had several binges, something I haven't done in years! I feel so disgusted and angry with myself. I'm having a hard time seeing myself ever getting to a healthy weight. I got back on track yesterday but I totally just don't trust myself. I just can't seem to make this a lifetime commitment. If only I could figure out how not to make one mistake equal a major de-railing!!!! I've read the articles, I know I'm not the only one, there has to be something that turns this around for me. I quit smoking 7 years ago and that seems easy compared to this! Can't just give up food....LOL The only positive thing I can cling to right now is that I haven't given up. emoticon

Today was a good day, I slept in late but really needed it LOL. Puttered around the house doing this and that until I had to get ready for a wedding shower. Turned down all the yummy goodies (boy was that hard!) and ate healthy. YAY! Spent the evening with a good friend sitting on the porch yakking. I love a lazy Saturday.....later

I wish I was better at journaling or blogging, I just really don't know what to write....Things are going ok. I've been solid on track with my food this week but I think I was a little overzealous with the exercise. LOL It's just too much to make all these changes at once, some I plan to start slow with just some cardio a few days a week and then go from there. I finally feel like I'm in a good place and will have my first weigh in next Wed. That will a solid 2 weeks on plan and I'm hoping for around a 5 lb. loss.

Really good day yesterday. The morning started out slow, it looked like it was going to rain and I didn't get in a bike ride. Got some housework and laundry done early and then some friends dropped by around 2 and suggested a ride (motorcycle) to a neighboring town, dinner and ride back. The weather had turned beautiful by then and we all had a wonderful ride. I stayed on track with my food even though it was a buffet! So I didn't get any exercise in but still a good day!

Listen to the YouTube series "THE SKINNY ON OBESITY" with Robert Lustig M.D. as it is so helpful. You will get to that 120# goal. I know you will.

I am reading "THE SUGAR FIX" by Richard Johnson M.D. His lectures on YouTube is worth listening to.

Today was a roller coaster kinda day. I don't want to go in to detail because I only want to use this journal to record my journey to better health. Thankfully I didn't use anything as an excuse to eat off track! I started back on MF and the past two days I haven't been able to fit in all 5 meals. I probably didn't pick the best week to start as I have 1 to 3 apts. every day this week except Fri! As far as exercise, my plan is to incorporate it beginning week three. I have a nagging headache so I'm off to bed.

Today I set a long and short term goal for my weight. My long term goal weight is 120 and my goal date is 9-1-13. I am going to make short term goals of 10 lb. losses and the dates will be determined by the dates of reaching each goal. My first goal will be 10 lbs by 10-20-12. That would be a loss of 2 lbs per week, which I feel like is totally doable since I usually can lose pretty quickly in the beginning. I'm totally aware that water weight tends to be part of the equation in the beginning but hey it still motivates me! I'm also making exercise goals and I will change those up from time to time also. My goal for the rest of Sept. and Oct. will be cardio 3x p/wk and strength 2x p/wk. I'm making weigh in days on Sat. As far as diet, I am going back to Medifast which my Dr. recommended to me a yr ago May. It worked for me before and I was healthier than I had ever been so I KNOW it works. The key for me is going to be maintenance as it is with ANY weight loss plan. So here I go!

Just weighed myself and then compared to last year on the same day and I am up 16 pounds. This is not even my lowest weight, sad. I don't want to continue this cycle anymore. I'm not going to be down on myself or make some grand goal either. I'm just going to approach this one day at a time and try to work on myself to the best of my ability. I have the desire, the knowledge and the means to be healthier and happier and that is my plan. That said, it's absolutely imperative that I have a doable plan and I am working on that. Strangely enough I don't feel depressed, I feel a renewed strength to get back on track and that's exactly what I'm going to do!
