Taking a closer look.....

Monday, January 28, 2013

I have been feeling SO frustrated lately! I have been watching what I eat, and working out since the day after Christmas. In the first 2 weeks I lost 5 pounds. Since then I have lost nothing. It has been so aggrivating. So i took a closer look at my diet. I love sparkpeople reports! I realized that maybe I havent been eating as well as i should be. I realized that over half my days this month I have gone over my calorie limit. Alsoi realized that almost every day I went over my fat and sodium limits. I did not even realize! I thought I was eating exactly how I was suppose to. So today I was right on point on my diet. I stayed in my calorie, fat and sodium range. I hope this is the start of a good streak. So the moral of the story is when you feel like your doing everything right there is always room for improvement.


Finally making a lifestyle change.

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I have recently decided not to diet any more. I am changing my lifestyle instead. I have joined a gym. Which I go to 5 days a week. I have also started taking a long hard look at my eating habits. What I realized was I ate a lot of crap :) . I cant say I have mad a 180 but I am working hard at whats healthy. The best part is I am including my whole family. I am cooking healthy food for everyone. I also started taking my little girl for walks and getting her outdoors more! I have had my setbacks, I havent completely forgot the drive through but I am human and I understand that. I am not beating myself up about the slip ups but just remembering this change is forever not just today. I am very optimistic about my change. I already feel like my health is improving. My legs already have more definition. No the scale does not always say what I want it to say, but I am not giving up. So 2013 is definitely going to be my year!


Back at it!

Sunday, October 28, 2012

So I have taken almost an entire year off. In the past year I have tried to get back on track over 20 times. I have unfortunately gained 30lbs of my 50 lbs lost. I can feel how lack of exercise and poor diet have gotten to me. I feel more tired, and my clothes are tight. My husband and I want to have another child and I am scared that if I were to get pregnant again now I would gain all my weight back plus some. I am going to work my hardest on getting my self back on track. My husband is going to work with me too! I am excited and nervous just praying to accomplish some goals.

45lbs and I am STUCK!

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

It took me almost a year to loose 45lbs, but i did it! Unfortunately to be a healthy weight i still have 40lbs to go :( I am stuck! No its not a plateau i know why i haven't lost the weight i haven't been eating right and exercising. I feel like the wind has blown out of my sales. I don't know what to do to get back on track. I have "restarted" like 10 times but i don't have any momentum. Am i the only one that ever been here? How do i get back on track? I am drowning in doubt right now after4 months of "trying" i feel like im never gonna loose the weight :(

  I know what you mean I lost 20 pounds before I started sparkpeople and since then I have tracked what I eat and exercised fairly well but my heart just isn't in it. Hang in there and don't give up. That is what I am doing and I am still going to track what I eat and exercise as much as I can make myself. I do good for a week or maybe two and then I slack off so I am starting over again and I will continue to do that whether I lost weight or not.

  Can sure relate to this one. I lost 30 pounds and stayed there for way to long as I needed to lose an additional 30 on top of the 30 I already lost. Just started losing again. I was so worried about not gaining back the 30 I did not concentrate on what I needed to do to lose the additional 30. I finally figured it out for me.

Know why you want to lose the additional weight. If you have no medical problems then health may not be a goal for you. I wanted to lose the additional 30 to complete my goal. To make myself feel good that I didn't abandon the ship, I write down now everything I eat and daily exercise so I can see when I lose and when I gain. I gain eating out so I can't do that much, I only count calories in my head but am not rigid about it. Just trying to learn about my body and when it gains and loses and feel good and feel bad,

Look how much you lost so far. You can do it. Start right now and don't look back!

    Alrighty, Dr. Seuss rules the roost on this one. Remember the good Doctor?: "Today was fun. Today is done. Tomorrow is another one!"

Starting tomorrow, I respectfully suggest:

1. Use the Nutrition Tracker as though it is the Seinfeld Soup Nazi. Make it your religion. Nothing eaten or drank if not tracked.

2. Get your personal trigger foods out of the house. In the trash. Permanently. Never buy them again. We all have them. For many guys they are chips, nuts, beer. For many women, sweets. For my daughter, white bread and mashed potatoes. They differ, but they exist.

3. Drink the Sparky water. All 8 cups. Track it too.

4. Limit salt. Sodium and chloride are evil, and when they dance together they conspire against you .

These four simple steps will get you off dead-center. You are not alone and I've spent long times there. Calories burned have to exceed calories in. The easiest and quickest thing to do is to lessen calories in.

I hope this helps. Good luck Lilly!

  why do you REALLY want to lose weight? Is the reason worth the effort you have to put in to get there? If not, then you will remain stuck.

    I know how you feel. I have been stuck for 6 months and I too know why. I do good for a few days and then can't seem to stick to it. I am trying to plan out my meals ahead of time (one day ahead) and see how that works. It worked when I first started so hopefully it will work again. Track, Track, Track.

9 Week biggest looser Zumba contest!

Sunday, March 18, 2012

So my local Zumba is hosting a 9 week biggest looser contest for active zumba participants! I am so excited! I LOVE the biggest looser and i cant wait to be part of this. I think this will be my motivation to start loosing weight and break through this plateau. I also have another goal if i can loose 20lbs in the 9 weeks I can buy myself a treadmill with the ifit technology (Which is so amazing!). It is an expensive reward so I will be working very hard to meet my goals because i really really want it. So wish me luck..... no wish me alot of energy ;)
