BACK to BASICS....again!!!

Sunday, February 22, 2009

This morning before stepping on the scale, I petitioned and begged God to please not let me weigh 260 lbs. I am pleased and simultaneously ashamed to report that the scale registered 259.9 lbs. (HE is indeed merciful)!

How in the world did I get to 259.9 lbs.?

"Well, what had happened was...." I've been planning our company's annual party AND I've had a couple of big projects at work AND I broke my favorite water bottle AND it's been really cold outside AND there's a wait list for my favorite machines at Gym #1 AND I haven't had time to go to the grocery since the ice storm AND...things have been hectic/stressful...AND...AND...AND....ah heck the reality is...I got away from the basics.

You know the basics, like batch cooking, meal planning, drinking water, using the SP trackers, Sparking, planning my workouts and staying away from MY Kryptonite a/k/a desserts, cookies, cakes, donuts (that doggone HOT LIGHT)....in general SWEETS! Yes, I've been wasting away in Sugarville, too ashamed to Spark (what an oxymoron) and have not done any real exercise in about two weeks. Ah NAW! Not the Queen of Cardio with memberships to two gyms, every single one of the Core Rhythms DVDs, plus an elliptical machine, stability ball and free weights at home...WHAT???!!!

So, I've got a decision to make either I can fast-track back to 400+ lbs. or I can get BACK to BASICS. Of course, I'm going with Option #2.

BACK to BASICS is first realizing that as smart as I think I am when it comes to nutrition and fitness, I cannot have any success without God's help.

Secondly, I absolutely must consistently use the tools that are available to help monitor my caloric intake (my digital scale, measuring glass, the Core Rhythms 7-Day diet plan and of course SP's Nutrition Tracker). It's like a sick person who has the medicine they need to get well, YET they don't consistently take it and just just leave it in the medicine cabinet...how in the world can they expect to get better?

Thankfully, I am surrounded by an AWESOME support group who continue to encourage and motivate me (thank God!), so last but not least, I must lean on these folks just a little bit more.

Deep down I know that reaching my final weight loss goals will one day become a reality. With that being said, I must continue to remind myself that this is indeed a lifestyle change that's way bigger than the RED DRESS (yes, I still want it) and all of the other "rewards" that are hanging in my closet...this is about becoming the HEALTHIEST ME THAT I CAN BE AND IT WILL BE DONE!

Amen

"Be anxious for nothing, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God." Phil. 4:6 NKJV

    I liked this blog so much that I bookmarked it so I can read it again. We all have to stand firm on a slippery slope. If we are not fighting our way up, then we will surely slide back down! I've started letting Kryptonite creep back into my diet, so have made a commitment to get back to tracking. Thanks for being the enthusiastic, inspirational person that you are!

Love ya,

    Hey girl. First off, Kudos to you for being so honest. You haven't failed, because you're admitting a slight detour and want to get back at it. That's not failing... it's life! You know what to do. I myself have had times when I think I've got all the knowledge I need and think I don't have to journal or the like. Then the lbs start creeping up.

Take care sweetie.Journal, measure, be accountable. You can do it!! I'm here to kick your butt when needed and also to give moral support.

    D, I am so proud of you. Yes, I am because it is hard to realize when you have to get back to the basics.
It happened to me too. I gained 30 after the first 20 I lost, causing my heart to sink. The number on the scale made me realize it was time to go back to basics. I got Sparking and with your support and encouragement went on to lose 50 and have kept them off.

The BIG FIGHT...

Wednesday, February 04, 2009

So I've been in this whole weight loss/ life-style change for almost eleven years now and am super thankful for my accomplishments (to date I've lost 157 pounds).


(This is a picture of me at 407 lbs.)

With that being said, this last stretch of hitting my final weight loss goal has been EXTREMELY difficult. At one point in time I was in the 220's, now I'm fighting and struggling like I don't know what to get under 250. I must admit that sometimes I get discouraged and frustrated. And even when I want to give up I REFUSE!!!

What helps to keep me going are the folks who are ALWAYS in my corner. Like my family, friends on SPARK (especially my niece NEWBEIN who resurrected our little Fitlinxx Challenge), my church members and co-workers. PLUS the cute Spring and Summer clothes that are hanging in my closet are a SUPER DUPER source of motivation....LOL!

I know what it takes to get this weight off...I just need to consistently do it...that's where the BIG FIGHT comes in, because to tell the truth sometimes I just don't feel like doing what's good or doing the right thing!!!

Nevertheless, I will continue to FIGHT to...

...drink 64-80 oz. of WATER a day
...drink 16 oz. of GREEN TEA a day
...do 90 mins. of CARDIO at least 5 days a week
...lift WEIGHTS at least 4 days a week
...do 50-100 PUSH UPS a day
...do 100 CRUNCHES on the stability ball a day
...do a CORE RHYTHMS workout everyday
...and the biggest fight of all will be to stay within my CALORIE LIMITS

"Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up."
Galatians 6:9 NIV

    Deondra-- I am sooo glad to know you. You are an inspiration to me and soo many others. So here is my 2 cents...If you think you can easily keep up your fitness goals then I would have your calories recalculated to make it coincide with your fitness minutes. You might be under on you calorie intake. I always track my food before I eat it so I know what I can eat...which helps me out a lot!
Girl, I wish you such great success on your journey...you are never alone! Never!! We all love you for you!! You will win this battle...because you will never give up. You CAN do it!!

GIRLINMOTION 2/4/2009 10:48PM

    Calorie limits sure can be so limiting!!!! Personally I think you are butting to much stress on doing to much exercise! More exercise makes your body need more food (I noticed this when I was training for a 10K run). Do you remember when you first started and how much exercise you did then? Everything needs to balance? (somehow). We need to have realistic goals that can fit in our everyday lifestyles for the long term, not just the short term.

I know I am preaching, but I care and I don't want you to stress over the small stuff. Remember one day at a time will get you to your goals. Slowly but surely. Quick fixes don't make for lasting results.

Hugs, Sonia

The Pursuit of Happiness

Thursday, January 01, 2009

Tonight while writing in my brand new Hot Pink prayer journal, I reflected on 2008 and was praying about my resolutions for 2009...so I decided to share a few of the excerpts from my journal entry on this blog.

Last year was such a roller coaster for me, and my closest SP friends were right there to support and/or cheer me on at every turn.

I had a few LOW moments like...

...the passing of my very best friend in the whole wide world

...having to lay off almost 1/3 of our workforce and

...the "electric slide" that my weight did up and down the scale

Then I had so many HIGH moments, like...

...me being used as a testimonial in the Core Rhythms infomercial

...my opportunity to be in the audience at the Oprah Winfrey Show as well as the communications that I had with two of her senior producers about my quest for the RED DRESS

...still being gainfully employed with a roof over my head, clothes on my back and food on the table

...all is well with my family

...witnessing my Mom (DDROSE) as she successfully achieved one of her major weight loss goals

...teaching Sunday School again

...having my vote to count towards the election of the first African-American President of the United States--President-Elect Barack Obama

BUT the number one highlight for me took place on the night of New Year's Eve.

I could've brought the New Year in at one of the big parties that was taking place in the city or stayed home and threw a party for one...but instead I felt the need to go to Watch Night Service at the church that my Godchildren attend.

Before midnight, my five-year old Goddaughter who rarely lets me hug, kiss or even look at her crawled up into my lap and fell fast asleep in my arms. As I held her, I felt such a sense of joy, peace and comfort that is difficult to describe. She had the sweetest smile on her face and watching her sleep helped me to:

* See the purpose and the lessons in 2008's ups and downs;

* Put the events of life into perspective and reminded me of what's truly important...the pursuit of happiness.

In 2009, YES I want to be fabulous, fit, fine and at my final goal weight, YES I want either the original or a replica of Oprah's RED DRESS, YES I want to be at my financial goal, YES I want to spend more quality time with my loved ones (i.e. family, friends and SPARK friends) but more importantly I want to focus on pursuing happiness and the only way I can do that is to focus more on God and His purpose for me.

Good and not so good things will happen as long as we continue to live, but God is faithful and He never forgets a promise.

So I am anxious to see what 2009 holds not only for me, but for all of us...I have a feeling that if we concentrate on the pursuit of happiness...we're all going to be fully satisfied!!!

"Happy are those who mourn; God will comfort them! Happy are those whose greatest desire is to do what God requires; God will satisfy them fully!"

Matthew 5: 4,6 Today's English Version

In the beginning of his diagnoses words of death were told to me. Me being a women of faith and a believer too I knew they were lying. He would not do this or that. But that devil is a liar. He his done much more that those nay sayers ever dreamed. God is a restorer, comforter and a way maker.

    I like #18 the best as it has a bit of everything. Just is small. #2 is pretty but think it should really be able to think "KY" when you look at it. Good job, thanks for doing this!

    I liked #18. It has more than horses in it . . . I am mightily tired of horses.

    I like #18 Scenic Romantic Kentucky. I'm a sucker for that style and I like that one the best of the cut-out letters.
