11 Weeks in and 27.6 pounds down

Thursday, November 08, 2007

Well, I weighed in today and was down 2.8 pounds. I was very happy to see that, because for the past few weeks, I have been averaging less than 2 pounds and before that, was averaging almost 4 pounds a week. But I am starting to get back in the game of losing again. Hopefully I can keep it up!

10 weeks in and 24.8 pounds down

Wednesday, October 31, 2007

One of my mini-halfway goals was 25 pounds by Christmas. I am 0.2 pounds away from my mini-halfway goal. If I hadn't had my 0.2 gain last week, I would probably already be at my goal, but it's ok. Next week I will definitely be there and than on my way to my actual goal of 50 pounds lost by Christmas. I am going to have to kick some ass to reach it, but it's not impossible. And even if I don't make it completely, I'll at least be reasonably be close.

When I firsted started Sparkpeople, my goal was 50 pounds by my birthday in March, but when I saw the weight coming off, I realized, I could move my goal up a bit. I can maybe reach 75 pounds by my birthday, as long as I keep at it and stick to it.

It's not impossible!!! I keep telling myself that. I thought losing any weight was impossible, at least for me. I thought it would be really hard and would have to cut out everything I love, but I don't! I can still eat anything and everything, it just has to be in proportion. I kind of blew it the other night but it's only one day out of many days of doing really well, so it's not going to hurt in the long run.

Nothing is impossible. If you believe you can do it, than you can. Nothing will get in your way, unless you let it. We have complete control over our lives and what we do with our lives. We have all the control in the world of what we put in our mouths....unless you have someone who ties you down and shoves food into your mouth with a gun pointed at your head, threatening to kill you if you don't swallow. How many of us really have that happening? I highly doubt any of us do, so we have no excuse. As long as we are determined and committed, we can do this. Tell yourself, "Nothing is impossible" and it won't be.

9 Weeks in and Up 0.2 pounds

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Apparently my experiment worked, just a week later than I thought it would. I got on the scale this morning and was up 0.2 pounds. I did pretty bad this week, in the fact that I didn't exercise everyday. I only exercised like twice this week and did strength training only once this week. I did eat really well, but apparently that doesn't make much of a difference. Or maybe our bodies don't work as I thought they did. Really it was two weeks that I did reasonably bad with my excercise, but that is going to stop today. I already did some exercise. I rented this hip hop exercise video this morning for 30 minutes. I am going to try to get in some walking tonight, hopefully without my son for at least another 30 minutes. I need to do something because I have two weeks to reach my goal weight of 270 and I am currently at 278. I would need to lose 4 pounds a week to reach my goal but I know that is very unlikely, so I am extending my goal date by another week. I can hopefully lose 2.6 pounds a week, if I do everything right for the next 3 weeks. My average is 3.5 pounds a week so its definitely doable.

    Hi Cindy: My scales went up 1.2 pounds, but I'm sure I didn't really gain any weight. I was on another diet once where I didn't lose weight for a whole month! I was so upset because I followed my diet. But then, all of a sudden the scales moved down about 8-10 pounds. I'm hoping this time won't last that long; but, as long as I'm eating right and exercising as best I can, I'm just not going to worry about it! You're doing so good. Keep up the great example. I'm glad someone is trying as hard as I am to really take all this very seriously. Personally, my health depends of this. Getting diabetes has really changed my life! But if it makes me get small again, I quess I'm not going to complain too much. LOL

    Cindi, you have done fantastic. I have been reading these all day. If you only gained .2 lbs you really arent doing that bad. It may only be that your retaining water. I agree that we need to workout more. I can't believe how much I love to do it. But sometimes it just doesn't happen for one reason or the other, as long as we are not making excuses just so we can justify it in our minds. I think you are doing a fantastic job just to recognize that you need to work on exercising more. Keep positive and have an awesome day!

8 Weeks in and 23.2 pounds

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

My experiment didn't really work. I lost 1.8 pounds this week. I did absolutely no walking this week and only 2 days of strength training and ate way over my calorie range 3 days this week and I still lost weight. Now, I know what you are thinking: "Why is she complaining?" I wanted to show a weight gain or nothing this week to show myself how important walking is to my weight loss. Yes, I am happy I still lost weight, but now I am going to have that thought in my head that I can not walk and still lose weight. I don't want that. That is going to be just another obstacle to overcome.

I am getting off my period, so my mood is leveling out. So now I am going to be able to think normal and get back into my routine. I want to lose at least 3 pounds a week for the rest of the year. I want to get down to 250 or below by new years. Even if I don't, any weight loss will be good, but that is my goal.

So here is to another week of exercising and eating healthy!



Sunday, October 14, 2007

This week I am kind of experimenting with my weight loss plan. I am trying to eat right and only doing strength training. I want to show myself how important it is to at least walk 5 times a week, to hopefully keep my committment and motivation up. This week, I started out doing pretty bad. I hadn't exercised in a few days, other than strength training and two days, I ate over my calorie limit. I've been having a hard time in my personal/work life, that has been taking a lot of my attention. But hopefully the lack of weight loss, weight gain, or neither will push me to keep going, no matter what is going on.

So I will update you on Wednesday on how my little experiment works out. Wish me luck!

    Cindi - you're doing a great job!! :) Exercising can deffinatly be hard sometimes when you only look at it as exercise. I really like to cross my walking and pleasure - I often go mall walking and "window shop" for maybe two hours without buying anything! LOL! Its fun for me, and you can walk for a long time without even noticing it much! I also walk as a way to decompress when things arn't working out perfectly in life, mostly because i feel SO much better after the walk. Whenever I get depressed or lonely at home I drag my butt out the door no matter how cold and crappy it is out. It really helps me thing. I've also had some of my best conversations with the boyfriend on our walks! It's become a tradition for me to walk him to work whenever I'm over at his place now, and it all ads up :) Its amazing how attitudes towards something changes the level of fun. I wish I'd known that when i was skipping out on gym class! LOL! You'll find a way to make things work for you, no matter what it is in life! :)
