Another year, another way..

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

So, i says to meself. If it didn't work last year --or the 40 years before that --what would make me think that it would work this year!!!

The reality is that if I lose ONE pound a week for 52 weeks that is 52 pounds GONE! It does not matter if I impress the Ladys in the group every week with the largest loss. What matters is that I am consistent. Now, that is what all material has been saying all these years--I just didn't hear it. It is a life style --not a big deal, simply letting life unfold and choosing how I will handle it. I tend to sulk, go inside myself--go it alone--afraid of looking needy and therefore I am needy. FUNNY, we humans are a trip!!

I think about it too much--whatever it is trying to make a perfect plan so that I will not get in trouble for making a mistake and look foolish--like I really wanted anything in the first place.

The reality is that I do want to look good. Ok , so that's not a sin!! All goes back to as a child being made fun of when I thought I looked nice. And getting lost in the fear of it happening again. Never, really realizing that when others would do such a thing it would be out of their own feeling of not feeling good about themselves. Interesting!

I don't really know how to not care what people are thinking--in reality I do not know what they are thinking. But one can sure tell by their words and actions! Most folks are just trying to get through life and are searching for someone to share the smile with.

I am exercising well and eating pretty good. I am getting muscle in my back to keep me more balanced. So, I guess I should celebrate and pat myself on the back---that was a secret goal of mine--I was afraid that I couldn't do it. Now-- to let myself continue and feel good about it is where I have a problem--I should say had a problem because it is certain that I CAN AND DID SUCCEED AT IT~~~ WOOOHOO!!

I need a little more ego stroking of myself this year--see what it feels like--learn to live with it without feeling guilty. Quit disregarding my feelings of looking, and thinking positive about myself and venture out--there.

    You can do it. Just stick and be patient and you will see more the results you want. I find my weight kind of yo-yos. I believe that is probably normal.
Sounds like you have the right attitude. Thank you.

    Even if I lose one pound a week, I will most likely be dead by the time I reach my goal.
So I better wear something nice so they can stuff me like a mounted deer head and hang the skinny me on the wall! LOL

    Keep the attitude we will succeed stay focused on what you really want out of life and just go for it .Nothing beats failure but not trying . That 1 lb a week was my goal in the beginning but it didn't work right now I would be happy to lose 1/2 lb a week and 1/4 inch around my belly a week that would be 26 lbs and 13 inches gone in a year . WOW I wish you the best . You can do it and you are worth it . God bless. emoticon emoticon

    I just came to the computer to email my dh to tell him how we have to start making the most of our time (I just got off the phone with my deceased mother's old friend and she was telling me about their group of friends how now they are housebound, unhealthy, etc.) and I saw your blog! It lines up with the 'messages' I have been getting today...... like you said "simply letting life unfold and choosing how I will handle it.".... I too, have been sulking too long and going it alone. Since SP that is changing. Time is slipping away. In the past I have wasted my precious time. We will succeed! emoticon

Gathering information

Monday, January 04, 2010

Well, I want to walk a marathon in April. Then I find out half of it amounts to 13 mile. emoticonSo, do I give it my best shot--knowing that at least I will hit near the mark and just maybe I can do it???
Or, do I hunt for a 5K?
I will just start training and see. Every trip starts with the first step. Or something like that!! emoticon

It is fun to get away for a week or so--better to come back to familiar surroundings!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My Plan started for 2010:

Posted meal plans for 1200 cals a day on frig door.
Now remember to address it each time I feel like eating.

Many recipes available for one or two on spark people.
Use ideas to meet the 1200 CALORIE idea from TOPS

I can use 100 more for evening if I want too and that will come to the 1300 I think is where it would be alright for me.

The main idea is to get enough nutrition and not feel deprived.

Work with the emotions that come up.

Go to Kaiser and get official print out of weight. No denying the facts when printed.
Make appointment for lab work for cholestral --HDL-LDL--TRIGLYCERIDES

Continue exercise.
