    I agree. All food in moderation is good but I do think processed food is not a good choice to have every day.

What's Up

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

No whimsical thoughts or clever idea's from me today. I'm lost, that motivated gal from a couple of months ago has left me high and dry. I Want Her Back danm it.
So when you lose something you retrace your steps to find it, yes? Well it's challenging to retrace what you were doing a month ago. Thought I was such a bad a$$ I could put myself on hold and pick right back up where I left off, not happening.
Was so proud that I maintained the 15 pounds lost while I was on hold, but how do Iget back on track? I still have at least 15 to go...
Step One is purging my frustration with myself onto my blog, check
Step Two is recognizing Ihave a habit of putting myself on hold, for so long that I end up being my last prioity. Which sounds so selfliess but it's just an excuse. If I really wanted to do it, I would have.
Step Three, Forgive but not forget, It's ok we can start over self, but keep the valuable lesson that when you don't maintain good habits it's hard to start over. Check
Step Four. Start over from the beginning, My first week on SP my goal was to increase water and veggie consumption, but I'm going to up that goal by adding 2 workouts and five miles of walking _________ ( thats where I'm going to write Check saturday evening)
Thanks or stopping by and watching me wallow around in my self-pity, Hopefully you find yourself in a much better mind set, Me

    Hey we've all done it. Congratulations on keeping the pounds off while you put yourself on hold. I have 'held out' long enough to regain some weight--Glad you came to your senses sooner than I did. You go girl!

Day 77 & The Chain Gang

Sunday, November 18, 2012

Maybe you heard me mention joining a chain gang? My newest motivator, a chain of paper clips newly added to a shelf in our bathroom. Something very odd about these shiny, colorful do dads hanging there and the motivation they provide. A sense of accomplishment and a huge desire to make it 33 clips long! (thank you so very much to the sparker who added this secret of success and who's name I have since forgotten, I love it)
What drives you forward? The first five is a great start, you get a badge for that. Then the first 10, another badge and you really feel the wiggle room in your britches emoticon I saw somewhere around here that 12 pounds is the average where people start to notice your thinner, so I pushed forward. Like magic I've had one person every single day this week comment or ask me if I was thinner, emoticon emoticon
There's a 15 lb badge right around the corner and a new party dress in my closet emoticon
Would I have liked to have meet my original goal by the goal date, of course! I might be only halfway there by Dec 1 but I wouldn't trade one more pound for all the knowledge and tools I've gathered here and of course my lovely spark friends I met along the way emoticon
Keep searching for the things that drive you forward, your going to need more than one!

    I love the paperclip idea! I am so going to use that now too! I only have plain silver ones right now but tomorrow I am going to stop on my way home from work to pick up some pretty colored ones. Thanks for the idea and good luck on your continued success!!

Wear Me

Friday, November 09, 2012

My visual for today, I sooo wanted to wear this dress to my hubby's party. But not at this size, and since I'm still 3 inches away in the waist I don't know if it can happen by Dec 1. I want to burn it off forever, not lose only to find it again...
PS- Rosedress.com is the bomb!

  Awesome dress. My goal for party dress is Valentines Day. I purchased cool palazzo pants and sparkly top for Christmas party this year. Then I will donate them because of course they will be too big for next year!

Day 45- Closet Vision

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Today I'm home doing the housework, the most boring, thankless job on earth! Thinking of the major calorie burner it is when done as quickly as possible keeps me motivated, who doesn't love a two for one deal, right?
So anyhow, I was folding laundry and something occurred to me.
Visions of my future closet, what does a closet look like when you like and can wear everything in it with confidence?
When the clothes you changed out of and discarded to the floor because they show every mistake you've put in your mouth no longer exist?
Is it possible there will be more space because they are 2, 3 or 4 sizes smaller, oooohh just maybe.
And what about not having that small collection of someday I want to wear that. Come on, am I the only one whoever bought the beautiful shirt (that didn't fit))on sale, hang it on the rod and dream of the day it got to be worn?
Maybe you too have at least one favorite pair of pant's you've held onto, ever so patiently waiting for them to fit again?
I'm going back to my calorie blast/ housework workout now, but when I finish I'm going to spend my evening crystallizing my vision doing a virtual closet makeover. My beautiful new little clothes are going to need a gorgeous space.

    You are definitely NOT the only person to buy something you want to fit one day - I think just about everyone has! What I've found in the past is I hold on to something I want to fit again, only to find that when it finally fits, I want something else altogether:)

    I have all of my clothes I long to fit in again, size 10, I don't want to get rid of any, I lobe them all, im sick of wearing clothes just because they fit and not necessarily for the style they are :( should use it as motivation, I hope you had a good workout :)
