New Attitude!!!! Back To Basics

Wednesday, November 28, 2007

I feel out of control with food lately so i am going back to the basic, noting every little thing i put in my mouth and keeping track calorie wise. I have to do this if I plan on losing. I have been playing this past year and I'm tired, I really need to push myself, I've lost a total of 34.5# and it had been higher but I have sabbotoged myself left and right so, enough is enough. I need to get it done!! No emotional eatz and I will exercise, no more exercise excuses!!

    WWAY TO GO Emmy! You CAn do it - you are worth it! Stick to your plan to keep your portions in check and log everything! It takes up to 21 days to make a habit, so hang in there. Once it's habit again, you won't even notice. Good luck!

Am I my own worst enemy??

Wednesday, October 10, 2007

Yes, I can be!!! When you have success, weigh losses I do it everytime, I stop myself from going on... so for some reason, i'm stopping myself from succeeding. Well it is just an excuse. I know how to do this. I know I have to eat right and exercise. I hate exercise, I'm saying it, but will it help me yes, so I just have to get passed make no excuses and get up and move, if I want to have success at the scale. I know I can do it, I'm just being lazy on doing what I have to do it. So no more procrastanating on myself because that means i'm not loving myself enough to make it happen for myself. I've lost and need to keep it coming off.

    I have the same problem, not loving myself enough to keep myself going on the weight loss. But we are worth it ask any one around you, YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!!!! Just kept repeting so very postative comment in your head, like " I am beautiful" over and over or " I am worth it " say it until you belive it.

Believing in yourself

Wednesday, October 03, 2007

I came across this song by Josh Groban-Believe which is actually a holiday song and was inspired by the words and wanted to share it.


Children sleeping, snow is softly falling
Dreams are calling like bells in the distance
We were dreamers not so long ago
But one by one we all had to grow up
When it seems the magic's slipped away
We find it all again on Christmas day

Believe in what your heart is saying
Hear the melody that's playing
There's no time to waste
There's so much to celebrate
Believe in what you feel inside
And give your dreams the wings to fly
You have everything you need
If you just believe

Trains move quickly to their journey's end
Destinations are where we begin again
Ships go sailing far across the sea
Trusting starlight to get where they need to be
When it seems that we have lost our way
We find ourselves again on Christmas day

Believe in what your heart is saying
Hear the melody that's playing
There's no time to waste
There's so much to celebrate
Believe in what you feel inside
And give your dreams the wings to fly
You have everything you need
If you just believe [x4]

Just believe

I read this and yes mind you it is about believing in the Christmas spirit and holidays, but isn't also about believing in ourselves. Can't we apply this to our daily lives. I know the chorus struck a cord because it summed it up:

Believe in what your heart is saying--My heart is saying I am loved and I believe it. I believe in my goals I have set for myself as part of the course.

Hear the melody that's playing--My melody playing is my weight loss friends and family who support me in my daily struggles.

There's no time to waste--Really there isn't anytime to waste because life is a gift and each day we live and do it to the best we can is a present to ourselves we can never take back.

There's so much to celebrate-Yes Life!! We must always give thanks and celebrate all of our success as well as failures because it is how we win/learn in the end.

Believe in what you feel inside -- Always go with your gut feeling it is always right!

And give your dreams the wings to fly-without taking the risk you will never know if you can accomplish your dream, yes it may be hard, hurt or be fun but you can't know without trusting yourself enough to fly.

You have everything you need-All I have is within my reach for me to succeed but I must have the will to continue daily!

If you just believe- no more words are needed for this, just believe in ourselves and we will make it happen.

So make something happen by believing.

Back on track!!

Thursday, September 13, 2007

Had a bad few days with carbs and fast food but as of this morning I have gotten myself on track and made excellent decisions. Started off with eating 2 hard boiled eggs, made my own iced vanilla cinnamon coffee, pineapple slice and a curve bar that was equivilant to one carb.

My mid morning snack will be a cup of yogurt

Lunch-Healthy Choice Salsbury entee w/salad lite dressing and Apple

Mid after noon snack-banana with peanut butter 1tsp.

Dinner-will be broiled chicken 4oz with 1 cup of brown rice and some type of veggie.

Dessert/snack-Curve bar with milk. (or fruit & yogurt)

my goal is to stay within my range, plus will exercise tonight ....

Game plan is to build back my consistency!! One meal at a time, I know I can do this!!!!!
