It's Time To Get This Right!

THIS IS NOT A RACE, IT'S A BATTLE FOR HEALTH & HAPPINESS!

As you can see by the captions beneath most of my pictures, and the chart at the right side of my page that my battle has started, stopped, and began again and again and again....... But the battle MUST continue and when I lose the fight for one day, I need to get up dust myself off and move on without giving up.

If I learn something along the way then I have accomplished something for THAT day........

THIS IS NOT A RACE, IT'S A BATTLE FOR HEALTH & HAPPINESS!

As you can see by the captions beneath most of my pictures, and the chart at the right side of my page that my battle has started, stopped, and began again and again and again....... But the battle MUST continue and when I lose the fight for one day, I need to get up dust myself off and move on without giving up.

If I learn something along the way then I have accomplished something for THAT day........

I get so depressed and angry because I lose weight one week, gaining a third of it back the next, and lose that plus 1 - 2 pounds the next week. I seesaw back and forth and think of myself as a failure but I'm not a failure I'm human and I will make it with this weight loss struggle and good health campaign. I will get sad sometimes and then I will be excited the next but I can't quit...... EVER!

Bare with me as I struggle forward again. Pray that I am strong enough to choose the right choices every single day of the week until I have settled into this plan stronger than I was before! I am weak at being strong alone but that's just another part of my new life and health that I need to work on. I have learned that being healthy isn't all about the body, the weight of a person, the cholesterol counts, the A1c's, or the thyroid results. Being healthy includes the MIND..... and I have a lot of work to get accomplished there as well!

God Is great my friends!

"It takes effort and belief to persevere and stay dedicated to accomplish your goal. When you find yourself doubting whether the effort is worth it, visualize how you will feel and what you will have once your goal is completed."

Hi Debbie, thanks for stopping by my page. Good luck on getting those walks in the park, and going to the pool when you can afford it. I bet water aerobics would be a fun way to burn some calories and tone up. Seems like you would use just about every muscle in your body!

You asked if I'd share my plan. Well, its nothing special. I just count calories. I try to stick to around 1500 a day, although some days I allow myself to go up to 1700. And I am a vegetarian, although of course you don't have to be a vegetarian to lose weight. I also try to cut out processed food as much as possible. I'm not perfect but I figure if I do my best every day and don't quit, I'll make progress.

Oh, and what works best for me is to focus on getting healthy instead of on losing weight. I don't even weigh myself. I am not aiming to reach a certain number on the scale. I just want to be a healthy size 10 some day!

I'm rooting for you to reach your goals. Have a healthy week!
Hugs,
Pixie

“So much of what goes on with eating patterns is mind over matter.
If you say, 'I can't resist this,' you're absolutely right.
If you say, 'I can handle anything,' you'll also be absolutely right.”
