Well, think I'll try again.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Everytime I start a diet I always say it's going to be different this time, I'm going to stick with it, I want to be able to tie my shoes, and buy a pair of pants with a zipper. It's not that I can't do it because I have before, I guess I could use the ole, "well I'm getting older so it's not so easy for me to lose weight," line, which we all know is just crap. I don't know why I can't seem to stick with a diet anymore, in fact I don't know why I can't seem to stick with anything anymore. My family is, for the most part, supportive but they don't understand. They really don't know how I feel, I hate when my mother says, "you really should take off some of that weight," or when my husband says, "I love you the way you are, even if you were 300lbs I would love you." I guess he hasn't really looked at me lately since I'm already very close to 300lbs. I never thought I would get this big, when I hit 180 I thought well this isn't a bad weight for me, I look ok, I'll stay at this weight. The next time I got on the scale I was over 200 but decided that as long as I didn't go over 225 I'd be ok. Well 225 came and went and so did 250, 275, 280, and now 290 is getting dangerously close. I have got to stop, I can't breath, can't tie my shoes, my back hurts, knees hurt, feet hurt, it all hurts. I see myself in a mirror sometimes and it makes me feel like crying but yet I keep eating, why do I do that? I don't want to be fat anymore, I'm going to be 55 this year and I would really like to see 95 like my grandmother did. So once again here I go on the diet journey.....

    First off, quit using the word DIET! It is so negative and very restrictive. Second, remember why YOU want to do it. You listed it above. Are those things really more important to you than those foods you crave, or sitting on the couch watching a pointless tv show? Is your back hurting just sitting worse than it aching because you exercised?

It really is quite simple once you a ready to make the choice. It is simply about choices. Which choice is it?

No, I never got that large, just 190, but I stopped and made the choice. AND so can you. And even today, my family, friends, co-workers tempt me constantly. Even when they know I am working toward a very lofty goal - I AM on a diet for a competition. I do make choices everyday. It is not easy.

But we have this WONDERFUL tool and great people here.

Please don't look at how far you have to go. Take one day at a time and start today with little changes. Drinking more water. Eating more fruits and vegetables. Getting in 10 more minutes of exercise every day. After the end of this week - so what you did, then adjust, and do better next week. You can't lose.

So you'll make mistakes. Learn from them and move on.

I am here to help you with whatever you need. You are YOUNG... you don't want to live 40 more years feeling this way... you can do it. I know you can.

I DID IT AGAIN, I FELL OFF THE DIET WAGON!!!

Saturday, September 19, 2009

I was doing pretty good for awhile there but once again I fell off the diet wagon. So now here I sit wondering what happened. How did I get sidetracked with my plan? I hate being like this, I don't like myself and that makes be very bitchy. I wanted it so bad but once again I failed. Maybe I am just suppose to be fat and unhealthy for whatever years or days I have left. The sad part is I know I can do it I've done it before but for some reason I've lost the motivation or whatever and I just can't seem to stick with it, or anything else for that matter. I hate that I can't do things because i'm to fat. It's almost embarrassing if my shoe comes untied at work because I can't bend over to tie it, so I just wait till everyone is out of the office and stand up and put my foot in a chair so i can tie it. Thee are so many things that my weight keeps me from doing and I know it, but I just keep on eating all the wrong things. Maybe I should weigh myself and try again, not sure why i'll just meet with failure again. I'll blog if I get started again.

    I ask my self that same question almost daily. I wonder why I even try, but I know I can't ....no we can't give up!

    You can do it Grannyluvs4!! I know it's hard to stick with it. I've lost the weight before, it's come back. And now I ask myself the same question: why is it so hard to lose it this time? I've been at it for three weeks and have made no headway according to the scale. But I think that we both can do it. Maybe focus on your little successes and then look for bigger ones. I do hope you try again! :)

BACK ON TRACT

Monday, June 15, 2009

I think I'm back on the right track again. I had to learn my lesson that hard way and gain a little bit before if sunk in that my diet was working when i tracked what i ate and didn't just mindlessly put food in my mouth. I'm doing good and will continue to do so.

I HAVE GOT TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR I DO.

Saturday, June 13, 2009

emoticon Well for the last week I have not been keeping track of what I ate nor have I done any type of journal writing. I thought I could do it by just keeping it all in my head but, I guess my head isn't as big as i thought. If I had written everything down I would have been able to see the effects of the Big Mac on paper and not just on the scale this week. Wish I could say the Big Mac was the only thing I ate that I really shouldn't have but it wasn't. Right now I just want to kick myself in the butt for eating like I did. Today I am back on the right track and I will be putting everything on paper when I am at work and then transferring it to my spark page. When I first weighed this morning my first thought was, "well i've gained so there's no reason to continue on my weight loss." I thought about that for a bit and decided, "ok, i had a bad week a very bad week but that's no reason to quit now." I quit smoking 8 1/2 years ago, that seemed to be easier than the weight loss but, I did that and I will loss the weight. Once again I know I CAN.

  Well, you did exactly what you should have. When you started thinking about quitting your diet you talked yourself out of it and made a plan. You made a plan to start writing everything down and holding yourself accountable. That's exactly what you should do. It is a learning process we are all going through and you learned the right way to keep moving forward!

    If you can quit smoking, you can do this! I have been smoking for 21 years, I lost both parents to cancer before I was 21 (my Mom didn't smoke), and I still can't let the damn smokes go! You would think I would have learned something?
Today I'm sick, so I've kicked my hubby outside with his, and I'm hoping I'll remember how disgusting they smelled when I'm feeling better and am craving one. Today is day one for me on that journey~

As far as you are concerned with your bad food habits ~ Big Macs ~ Analyze why you are doing what you are doing ... Why do you eat them? Because it's quick, and on the run, or because it's habit to visit McDonald's? Maybe you just like the way they taste? If you are looking for something quick and on the run, try Subway, Roly Poly, Schlotzsky's, etc. If it's because it tastes good, start surfing the internet and think of better ways to make burgers...substitute hamburger with turkey. Eat to live, don't live to eat! You quit smoking to live...what's the difference here? If you bite it, write it! Log everything you eat each day. DO NOT go over your SP allotted calories for the day...you are a strong woman, I can see that...don't lose faith, and don't give up on yourself, you've accomplished so much as it is! 19.5lbs? You know what you're doing! emoticon
