I Lost 7 Pounds!

Tuesday, October 09, 2007

Weight loss can be one of the most frustrating decisions a woman chooses to do in her life. So many times we want the quick fix because we fail to remember that it took time for the weight to accumilate on our bodies. We fight with ourselves and become even more frustrated, so...we eat. We eat again. And we eat some more. Then the next morning you wake up and look in the mirror and see the same person who frustrated you the day before. But one difference, you decide to not cave in, give up and quit. You are not a quitter. Why not? Because you can see what you shall become. You keep your eyes focused on your prize. Then you understand that it is a reason to keep on the journey of your life. When 7 pounds came off my body in one week, I knew that I was going to give more than my all in order for health, wellness and good self esteem to become prevalent in my life. Accomplishments makes this entire process a joy. The journey is a hard one and yes it may be long, but the outcome is well worth the "weight". I am well able to enter into my new beautiul body.

It is very important not to have a daily pity party. All is not lost. I must remind myself of this every day. It is not that bad. I am alive and breathing. Circumstances are not ideal but I have to be the best me I am now. I weighed myself today because I was concerned about the readings. I have finally lost 1 pound. I am so excited about that. I know I have been working hard and I know it is paying off. I know that the scale can't count for all of my work because we are buildiing muscles which is extremely healthy for our bodies. We have to keep positive images and thoughts in our minds. We already have the victory and we must see it. I have to keep my new body image in my mind at all times. I love myself because Jesus loved me enough to give up His Life in Heaven for me and to defeat death. Just for me. We all have to love ourselves for who we are now. We are growing everyday. Whatever it is we do not like at this time about ourselves, we have that power within us to change it. It is all hard work. We must be willing to do it. As unto the Lord...everyday.

    Hi there! This is just what I needed to read this morning. Thanks so much for this! If you don't mind, I'd like to print this out and post it on my fridge as motivation. :) Please let me know if that will be alright.

Have a great day!

I was trying to lose 10 pounds for the August challege, then I realized that I have to start small goals. I want my weight to come off qick, but that is not realistic. A little at a time and the pounds will stay off. I thank God for His help. He wants me to live strong and to live long. This journey is all about changing my thinking on food and eat healthy nutritous meals. I have been having problems with eating breakfast everyday and sometimes I skip meals. Today, I was going through something so I was not hungry(8/30). I did not eat till late and I only had 540 calories today. That is not good. I will do better. I cast ALL my care on Jesus for He cares for me.

    I've learned the same thing- slow and steady is going to win this race for me. That why my efforts always failed before; I wanted to do it fast. This time I'm doing it right and for good. If you keep the mindset that you have, you will be successful. You're doing great!!!

    Knowing what you are doing wrong is the first step to start doing things right. You can't expect to lose 10 lbs each month, but you can work your best to lose the most possible, for your body and limitations. Just try and make the healthier possible choices when it comes to food, try staying in the ranges for other nutrients and not just calories, and be as active as time and life allows. Exercising releases endorphins just like chocolate, remember that!

I am still at it. Food has been my problem this week and the August challenge is almost over. I have kept moving. I will not stop till I reach 145 or look like I weigh. I have made a goal to lose 20 pounds by my birthday, which will be on Thanksgiving this year. I am thankful to God everyday beause He has given me the will to become healthy. I really want to lose 10 pounds by the 31st of this month because I am expecting company ; ). I still have a long way to go, but I have to get these extra pounds and inches off of me. Jesus is in me and I operate with the mind of Christ. I am a winner already.

I have the fever! The excercise fever. I'm doing some sort of movement throughout the day and I feel great. I love the treadmill again. I, don't complain about walking up 3 flights of stairs any more either. I even ran up the stairs Tuesday...well, a man was in front of me, but I'm telling you I felt real good. These are the stairs I use to go in and out of my dwelling. I am making progress and I am proud of myself. I hate to weigh myself, but I will. Everything is gonna be alright!!!
