I'm Back, but For How Long?

Monday, July 29, 2013

So, the last time I was here was the first of January. I have not lost any weight. To Be Honest, I think I'm close to 300 lbs. like 280.. I'm going to die if I can't get this weight off. I feel my body and it doesn't feel good on the inside. I can't get up to exercise... I can't get myself to eat right. Am I depressed? Just not motivated? I don't know what it is... I know I could if I could really wrap my mind around it, but maybe I'm scared of losing weight? I don't know.. but I'm here again, saying that I'm going to give it another try.. As of the beginning of next week, I will start. My goal is still 50 lbs by the end of the month. That is 10 lbs per month. I'll have to lose 10 lbs in August, September, October, November, and December to get it off. If I do lose the weight, I told myself that I would get a new car for my birthday. If I can lose this 50 lbs. Losing Weight is such an obstacle for me.. I want to say I know I can do it, but I'm not sure if I can.. And even if I do, can I keep it off? I come on here everytime saying I'm back, I'm ready and committed, determined to get the weight off and then I just fail... Not depressed or anything... just keeping it real.. But going to make the most of this and say Here We Go Again!

Ugh !

Sunday, April 08, 2012

I have not blogged or done *anything* since March 30th. I'm such a loser. (No, not really.. I KNOW!!!) I've really slipped this week. I mean, I haven't ate as horrible as I'm probably making it out to be, but I just feel unhealthy again. I have been doing a lot of unhealthy snacking (no matter how small the portion size may be) .. I haven't been eating vegetables or drinking enough water. I probably haven't had vegetables going on a week now and I'm normally only drinking 1 bottle of water throughout the entire day Monday-Friday and no water on the weekends... A big no-no. Ugh, I feel so retarded.. that's why I called myself a loser.. I'm totally sucking right now. Hopefully, I'll start out next week better... UGH. I weigh-in on Wednesday, I'm really dreading it. :(

    Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start again- today! You still have 2 days before your weigh-in to get back on track and take some steps toward progress. Don't give up!

    FRIENDOFBACH is correct, a new day is what keeps us going forward even though we may have taken several steps back - that's life! What we can do in the morning is change our mind set as after all we can be the Captain of our own life. No Captain would intentionally chart a course into a hazard zone. My hazards were sweets and many packaged processed foods. I now steer clear of those obstacles that will eventually destroy my life.

You can too with the right "mind set" - Have a great Easter - its a good day to say good-bye to hazards, your friend, Earl

Month 1 Review

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

I did surprisingly well for my first month. I lost 12 lbs. With all the setbacks I had this month, and the fact that I still lost 12 lbs, makes me wonder how much I *really* could have lost this month. I think I could have gotten up to 15-17 lbs. BUT, I am proud of myself, I haven't started off Month 2 so well, but I'm optimistic.. This is a learning process of a lifetime change. My eating habits have been this way for as long as I can remember, so it will be hard some days to keep it together. Some days I'm not going to feel like eating right.. Some days I'm not going to feel like exercising.. Well, let's say.. A LOT of days I'm not going to feel like exercising.. BUT... As long as I'm portioning myself and not going over my limits I think that I will be fine. Month 2 ends on April 20th. I'm currently 258 and if I stay on target, I will be 248 on April 20th. I will weigh-in on March 30th (to see how I'm actually starting this month off), April 6th (my 1/2 way point) and April 20th. (final month weigh-in). Good luck to all :) Stay motivated !

    My challenges for this month is drinking Sprite. I have been drinking Sprite and NO water. I'm gonna have to stop that. The Sprite is gonna have to go and when I'm on AF (which is when I crave Sprite), I'll have to limit myself to ONLY a week of drinking Sprite. ARGH! Where is my guilt trip telling me I'm a fatty so I won't drink it? Sprite is SOOOO good ! Lol.
