    We have a one-pop limit in our house, too. I often even skip that much, and it's always diet when I indulge. I like diet 7-up with diet cranberry juice.

The fries were harder to give up!

I know I Can!!

Sunday, January 04, 2009

Well my last blog entry I discussed about my six week no gain charm. I didn't do so hot as a matter of fact I allowed my weight to sky rocket about 15# for the past 2 months. It is time to get back on track for myself. I am going to attempt to lose this weight for good. I am tired of my back hurting, tired of how I feel sluggish, guilt after eating poorly, I get a really bad tummy ache when I don't eat right because of my Diabetic meds called Metformin thus I will get Met gut if I over eat carbs or fried foods.

I am giving myself a game plan -- no eating fast food for breakfast causes me to go south.

Exercising is one of the most important things I have to resolve and get with the program!!! I am purchasing a MP3 player to get my butt on the machines etc.... Then also back into the pool. On weekends I am going to start hiking with my husband rain or shine we will do it. Get up early and just do it also once a month play like a kid in the snow, sand or something just have great fund. A game of freeze tag with a bunch of my neighbors kids might totally work me out :) I will start out with 3 days a week then add on. I want to make this a daily routine.

Food -- Portion controls out come my measuring spoons and cups etc...

Blog - at least 3 times a week.

Track Food!!!

I am bound and determined to to this. I've done it a long time ago and lost almost 55 # I know I can.

I will have my husband take a full picture of me in spandex will paste the picture in the pantry and fridge to remind me what my goals are. A pound a week can be done reasonably.

Believing is Achieving... Dream big and Achieve Goals

20# Goal one week at a time

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

I go to TOPS weekly I have never gotten a six week no gain charm (you have to lose or stay the same for six weeks in a row have no gain in those consecutive weeks in order to earn this charm) I am going to do it!! My goal for the last few months of the year is to lose at least a pound a week!! If I lose more then great if not I need to maintain!! NO GAINS I am CHALLENGING MYSELF during the holidays because that is when most people forget about portion control and what your main goal is. It is not different we need to stay on plan so many ways to enjoy it without the HOLIDAYS being jsut about food.

Okay so here I go!!!


Week 1 (10/22 -- 10/28) Lost 1.4 :)
Week 2 (10/29 -- 11/04)
Week 3 (11/05 -- 11/11)
Week 4 (11/12 -- 11/18)
Week 5 (11/19 -- 11/25)
Week 6 (11/26 -- 12/02) (Turkey Weekend)

So my six week charm rest on a good Turkey weekend :)

Will achieve success by exercise, preplanning and portioning out my meals daily and journal/tracking food!!!

Oh yeah postive daily!!

    Emmy,

I love this idea. I haven't gotten to a TOPS meeting yet. The timing is not so great for the one near me.

Anyway, I'm going to do this with you. When I make it, I'm going to buy myself a charm for my charm bracelet. You have a partner girl!

Yay!

Never Give Up Hope

Sunday, October 05, 2008

Life doesnít always give us
the joy we want.
We donít always get our hopes
and dreams,
and we donít always get
our own way.
But donít give up hope,
because you can make a difference
one situation and one person
at a time.

Look for the beauty around you Ė
in nature, in others, in yourself Ė
and believe in the love
of friends, family, and humankind.

You can find love in a smile
or a helping hand,
in a thoughtful gesture
or a kind word.
It is still around, if you
just look for it.

Give love,
for in giving it
you will find the power in life
along with the joy, happiness,
patience, and understanding.

Believe in the goodness of others
and remember that anger
and depression
can be countered by love and hope.

Even when you feel as though
there isnít a lot you can do
to change unhappiness or problems,
you can always do a little Ė
and a little at a time
eventually makes a big difference.

Today I learned I can make a difference and if I don't give up on myself others will not give up as well.




  


What am I afraid of???

Wednesday, October 01, 2008

FAILURE!

I am afraid I will never take the weight off, that I will never taste the way thin feels!!! I get going but never get over that hump to allow myself the sweet success. I always sabbotage myself!! The fear of giving up the things I love the things that are in my comfort zone. Comfort foods like potatoes, french fries, hamburgers, pasta, pizza, POP and HOT DOGS!!

I am trying to write these these fears down, so they are visable to me!! So I can tackle them one by one instead of all at one time.

Rewarding myself for tackling each fear.

So to tackle them I need to find the route of the problem. AM dirve through stops, get up half and hour earlier and make yourself your breakfast sandwich. Leave so that you don't have time to stop because you will be late to work. Know that I can have my "comfort foods" in moderation and if I adhere to portion sizes. Allow myself a pop one a day vs 8 a day.

If i can get past the drive throughs in the am for one week then i will reward myself with some music cd or pedicure.

I can fight my fears one day a time, I will journal my thoughts and push myself harder. FAILURE IS NEVER AN OPTION!!!

NEVER GIVE UP NEVER GIVE UP!!

If you dream it and believe it you will achieve it!!!
