I want off this weightloss train...

Thursday, October 21, 2010

I am like soooo discouraged at this point. I realized this morning that the 6 pounds I lost last week, sure did mean a lot to me. When I saw last week that I had lost 6 pounds, I was thinking that it should have been more. Well this morning when I got on the scale I had those 6 back plus 1. That sure put a damper on my morning. So, to see that really hurt my feelings. I have cut my calories, written down everything I ate, increased my intensity and time on the treadmill at the gym, also added incline to the treadmill, plus on Mon, Wed, Fri upper body strength training, and on Tues, Thurs, Sat lower body strength training. And i suppose to start adding core to my workout this week. Not to mention I added two more lower body machines to my workout this week, so that I am doing the same amount of upper and lower body strength training on my body.

I am so pissed and I can see why I have gotten off this weight loss train before. When one gets on the scale and sees movement go to the positive side off things and not the negative, it gets very discouraging. I intended on continueing to go to them gym and workout and keep up on eating properly, but if this doesn't change in at least two weeks, I will have to do something else. Because this isn't working.

I need some help. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. This is very frustrating.

    This is just a small bump in the road... Keep going and do not let those 6lbs get you down. You have been doing such a great job and the workout really seems intense. So keep it up and do not give up.

    Thank you both so much. I will try eating the pineapple, as a matter of fact I will go to the cafeteria shortly and get a cup. I don't want to give up, but it does get hard. I just put in my mind that maybe I'm building some muscle. I'm praying that's what it is. But, thank you both for the encouragement. I really really appreciate it.

    I agree with ladyrh, don't give up. Chances are with the increase in exercise your body is retaining some water in order to repair itself, it will come back off. I understand how you feel, I go months at one weight, I stayed at 195 for 3 months, it would go down to 193 back up to 196 down to 195 back to 193 then finally would start down again, and start that same routine. I am now at 186 and that is since May. But I am now wearing size 14 instead of 16/18's. Keep at it. Don't give up. :)

    Don't give up. I understand how discouraging an upward needle can be on the scale. We have all been there done that. You may be retaining fluid increase your water to flush it out and eat fresh Pineapple as it is a natural diuretic.

Still Here

Monday, October 11, 2010

Well, today I took the time to write in my food journal and actually write down the foods I consumed. I think I have been doing great. I make sure that I bring my breakfast, lunch, and snacks to work, as well as eat them. I have been consuming over 10 glasses of water a day, and I am looking forward to hitting the gym tonight. I have made up in my mind, that exercise is not an optition, it is mandatory. I have to make this a part of my daily living just as I have made going to work a part of life. All is well thus far, and hopefully I can continue to say the same thing everyday.



On the move

Friday, October 08, 2010

I am still doing me, and making sure that I exercise everyday. I want to maintain this "new" lifestyle. I want to make sure that this is something that does not fall by the wayside. I have started to bring my lunch and make sure I cook my dinner at night. This does feel really good, especially since my husband and kids are in 100% support. My husband even washes the dishes once I'm finished cooking. So, at this point, I have no excuses why I can't achieve my new goal.

Decrease one thing and another sticks out.

I am so tired of being on this roller coaster ride. I want to get back into the groove of losing weight and toning up. I have lost weight in the past, but now it seems as if it is so hard to get back on track. I had a breast reduction in august and now it seems like the belly that was hidden before is now pushed way out. It is so hard to be encouraged when i feel like I look like a beached whale. I can't get in the groove of eating right because I am sort of depressed. I feel like this mission is so unobtainable. I need some help on where to start. God help me!!!!

    I agree with simple steps, one day at a time. Start with daily goals. Think of some habits you want to change. Begin with the easiest one and work on it for one week, then add another habit to be changed the following week.

I learned this when I began landscaping my yard. When I looked at my whole yard it was discouraging, so I broke it down and did a little every day. I made a plan that sometimes had to be tweaked. Some days I skipped but I would just start back again. It took a few years, but my yard is beautiful and most people can't believe I did the whole thing myself.

My weight-loss journey is the same. When I look at the large amt of weight I plan to lose it can be discouraging, but I have learned to take it one day at a time. It may take a few years before I reach my final destiny as some days I don't stay on plan. But I get right back up and get on track.

My weight is dropping consistently, but slowly. I am pleased as I feel much better and I see the results. I pray that you will have patience and begin to learn yourself and your body as you go through your weight-loss journey.

God bless.

    Thank you for the encouragement. I am determined to lose this weight. I am just stuck. But, I will start taking things in smaller intervals. I need to get with a support group I think. Hell, I don't know. I will do it!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I hear you, but REJOICE in the fact that you have one area that you no longer have to worry about!!!!!! I want a reduction so, so, so bad. I am definitely going to check into it next year. Yeah, it might have made your stomach SEEM more prominent, but it won't take surgery to make that go away, just keep up the hard work!

    it is hard getting started.. just take baby steps.. one healthy choice at a time. A substitution here, a piece of fruit there.. and it will all come together. I'm kinda in a rut too, but you will come out of it.. NEVER GIVE UP!!

Up at 530

Wednesday, June 02, 2010

This morning I made sure that I set my clock to get up at 5:30. I knew that the only way that I would be able to get to the gym is if I went at 6:00am when they opened. So, to stay true to myself, I got up and worked it out at the gym. After the gym went home, showered, got ready for a class at work, and proceeded on with my day. I feel really good today, and I am so happy to know that I accomplished what I set out to do today, and that was to go to the gym.
