trying to stay motivated

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Well, it's been a while since I posted anything, but I have been busy working on my changes. I went to see a nutrition specialist back in September, and weighed in a 309. I set a goal to be down 30 lb by the end of the year. I reach 276 by December 1st, but the holidays were rought for me....pleasant, but nice to my waistline. So I am currently at 279. I have started back on my path with the diet changes and exercise, but it's not miving like before. This is becoming a big issue for me....I need to see progress. When I don't see anything, I tend to stop. I still have 100 lb to go. I am breaking it up into 25 lb goals, but it's getting hard. I plan on increasing my exercise routine and strength training. With my PCOS, it is very difficult to fight the carb cravings, but I am still hopeful at this point. I just needed to get this off my chest......thanks! emoticon

    Venting is good! Get it off your chest, then refocus on yourself! You can do this! Hang in there and look at the food choices you're making as well as working out!

Well, I am back in town!! I just had a little one 8 weeks ago. Boy life has changed now that there are two boys in the house! I am already back to my pre-pregnancy weight, I was blessed this time. I only gained 14 lb. By the way, my son weighed 9 lb, 13 oz, and was 23 1/2 in. (No wonder my belly was always knocking into things, lol). I am now working on SLOWLY losing weight while breastfeeding. I still have my goeal as 200 lb (even though the charts say the most I should be is 178). Since I am nursing, I know this will be a slow process, but that's fine with me.
I have already started to walk three times a week for 30 minutes, so I feel good about that. I was able to take three months off work, and am trying to take advantage of the time. I am in my lase semester in grad school, and will be done one week after I go back to work. I get to take the little one to the park and walk on the trail during the week. It feels so good to just take my time and enjoy these first weeks with him.
Well, that's it for now. I am definitely on my way.......

I've been gone a while, but I'm back. This is one hard road. I am still trying to figure out how to add exercise in daily with my crazy schedule. But, I am doing what I can. My hubby nad I have decided to work on a little bundle. So, until I am expecting, i will continue to work on the weightloss. I wonder how my 3 year old will act? Hmm....we'll see!

This is a new week, and I am back on track. I am schedule with my exercising goals, and am moving forward. This week is the first full week of the semester, and I know that this will be a challenge. I have read that there should not be many distractions in your life when trying to lose weight. However, does that mean that I should not attempt weight loss until my life is still. THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!! So, I might as well get on with it.

I keep imagining myself as the "finished product", and I hope that that picture will help me to stay motivated. It has been helpful so far.

Until later.... emoticon emoticon

    It's hard to stay on board with our "diet" and "life" Just make the best choices possible that you can. Good Luck!
