My frustration is my own fault

Wednesday, December 02, 2009

I know my success has everything to do with my motivation and committment. So, here I am trying to convince myself that I need to eat healthy, exercise, and be honest with myself. Ok - I usually eat healthy, I find a plethera of excuses not to exercise, and I am honest about everything except the chocolate I "sneak". Who am I hurting? MYSELF! Everytime I get on the scale and see the number creeping upward, I get mad at myself. But the bottom line is that I am not trying very hard. I'm only kidding myself when I track only the healthy choices and pretend the chocolate didn't happen. What am I going to do about it? Well, I am going to take one day at a time. I'm not going to kid myself and I am going to accept responsibility for my choices. I have a good support system at my fingertips... Only I can lose the weight... it's time I stop finding the weight that others are losing! emoticon

    You know its funny how we can convince ourselves to do things that we know are wrong but do them anyway. I had the same problem and still do at times.

    This sounds familiar! I used to think if no one saw me eating it, it didn't really count! 52lbs later I started thinking that maybe it did! LOL! I'd say that owning up to it and getting honest is a REALLY great start! You can do this!!! Remember that nothing tastes better than THIN! (that's MY motto!) And just try to commit to 10 minutes of exercise a day. I think we can ALL find 10 minutes! When you start seeing results, you will be surprised at how motivating it can be! Hang in there! You can do this! You're not alone! We are ALL here to support you!

  Track the chocolate. It might surprise you. Knowing you are going to record it might make you eat less of it.

This is me.

I'm getting to that age where the metabolism slows (ok - stops!) and what used to fit, doesn't. I have had weight problems since I was a teenager. The last time I weighed this much was before I had children (20 years ago) and it's just crept up over the years. I love to eat (especially chocolate) and hate feeling deprived. I'm excited to try this and and I thank a fellow teacher for introducing me to this site.
