For those of you who have heard me talk about it, I recently got the urge to adopt a chinchilla. I went through some drama, which some of you may know, I got stood up from some lady who was going to sell me one. Found another person and I ended up getting her 3 year old white mosaic female "chi-chi". Brought her home yesterday, got her cage set up, handled her but she wanted to explore so I put her in her ball for a little while. Should be a nice pet while I am home alone (since the bf doesnt get home until 11ish). I am excited for my chi chi.

How Bad Do We Want This?

Thursday, October 30, 2008

This is a message I just wrote to my team for the BLC8 because most of us are not happy with the number the scale is producing....at least for this week....

Ive been thinking lately about how much of us and other people out there want to loose weight. Then you see success stories about miraculous losses in a short amount of months or gigantic weight losses once in a while, and my question to us all is....

How bad do we want this?!

I can answer this for me....I want it but my eating habits say different. Sometimes I still eat as if I will get satisfaction from snacks or bigger portion size, and that excess of food makes the number on the scale every week minimal. I know mentally I want it but I have gotten out of the 'food is fuel' mindset.

We all control what goes into our mouth and its only us who controls the weight on the scale. If loss is 80% about nutrition and we are all still gaining, we all need to make better choices. Yeah we want that cookie, chip, fast food, ice cream, soda, candy etc. but do we really need it? Is it gonna help us get to our goal? I know it sucks, but ladies and pilot, we do not need to be stuffing ourselves with unneeded calories.

I think we ALL need a wake up call and we have to stop letting food control our lives!!! I admit that I get jealous when I see success stories and people have lost a significant amount of weight in a year or less. It makes me think, where is my willpower, how come I am not successful, what did they do that I did not. I am very happy that I have lost my 23 lbs but there is still a lot to go and I want us all the be successful.

So when that cookie or treat is staring you down tell yourself how bad you want it and walk away.

I want it and I am going to try harder, food will always be there but I am in control of the food, food is not in control of me!!!

    Love this. You are right. I am on the other side of that mountain. I finally reached the summit and am crossing down the other side. And I will never turn back. It just finally all clicked for me. And I will never, ever allow myself to eat like I did before. There are sweets in my house. Cupcakes, Pecan Pie, Peanut Butter Cookies, just to name a few. I will not give in. I will not completely deprive my husband and my children, but they will not eat as unhealthy as we used to either. They eat much healthier now. I will not deprive myself. But I do not want these things. I know they will only make it harder for me to lose all this weight. And will make my journey that much longer. It's not worth it. I plan my treats. When I really want something, I will find a way to fit it into my calories for the day. Gone is the old fat, eat anything and everything, me. Here is the new me. And I will not fail!

    VERY good attitude, especailly that food is not controlling you! Yes, we all are faced with these "choices" everyday. And I do cave at points, but then I remember, tomorrows a new day and a day for me to make better choices. "You try, you fail... you try, you fail... but the only true failure is when you stop trying. So TRY AGAIN" :-) Good luck in your journey to achieve your goal!

Conquer Yourself.....take over the world!

Morning...afternoon...evening...to whoever decides to read this...haha

As of yesterday I am down 20 lbs with Sparkpeople! I have to take the credit myself as I did the work but SP gives me the possibility to link to other people for support and motivation. Thx everyone!!

I did another detox this weekend and I can't say I gave it my 100%, I killed it on days 2 and 3. I did snack on a few things (day 3 there was a party) but I only allowed myself a bite of some stuff. So much for detoxing, haha. I did loose a total of 5 lbs from Fri-Mon but I am down 3.4 lbs from last weeks weigh in, and down a total of 20.6 lbs since the start and obviously now under 250 at 249.2. Progress is slow and steady.

I have to say I am very happy with my accomplishment although honestly I still see no difference. I think I can see it a little waist of my pants but one day they are big and the next day they feel the same, so much for that. Haha. People are noticing and I say thanks and don't give it too much thought. What did I look like 20 lbs ago? I hate when people say you look good, because it means you didn't look good before...or god forbid what happens if I was to ever get back to that weight (I am DONE and it will never happen but just for giggles)...do I not look good anymore?

Last night I tried on some old clothes that I saved in my closet, and 1 pair of jeans that I tried on a few weeks ago, I was actually able to pull it up and zipper..it was not a pretty site, I was hanging out everywhere but its something. The rest of the stuff, forget it, got a way to go for those to fit...and they are LB size 16 from back in the day. So old I don't remember even owning some of those clothes...oops.

I am still participating in the Biggest loser challenge with one more week to go and although I have not met my goal of 25 lbs I have gone down 12 in 11 weeks. And I am doing the awesome Rocky challenges (RED TEAM Rocks) which are a big help for boredom. Other than that the same old weight watchers although since I dropped some weight I am allowed less points, wish me luck...and I am doing about 6-8 exercise classes a week.

If I can do it (which I never thought possible) then YOU can do it...and it means I can continue to do it!

    Keep up the great work. Fitting into smaller clothes really proves you have been putting in the effort to get healthier and leaner. Way to go!

    Yay! Congrats on being able to zip up the pants - I can't wait to get to do that. I have a whole closet full of stuff that I hope will fit again soon! You should take a pic in the tight jeans and then watch as you shrink over the next months and take another picture when they are too big! emoticon

    Wow You are dedicated!! Good for you! I have not seen my collar bones yet. But did discover the hip bones and a couple of ribs...ha ha. I don't miss the junk food either.

Keep up the good work.
