How do I celebrate a 3lb loss......

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

With chips and a chocolate bar, that's how emoticon I don't know why it is, but it seems like every time I gain a little momentum, I sabotage myself. I really wasn't hungry, so why did I eat the junk?

    i think from time to time we all do......dont be so hard on yourself..next time reward yourself with something other then food.New shoes,new clothes,something for you...That is what i do and it really works..

    I've been doing that lately too and have the same question, why? I wish I had an answer for you and me both! We just have to keep on keeping on. Don't kick yourself. Just start over right now. We can do it!

    Aww sweetie, we all do it at times, just put it behind you & carry on. Success will be yours just don't punish yourself over it. It's not the little fall off the wagon that will make you gain your lost weight back, it's what you do after you fall off your wagon that dictates your success so pick yourself up, brush yourself off & try again tomorrow :-)

Take care & work off any disatisfaction with a little exercise ;-) also helps burn some of the extra cals too.

Week 2 ...motivation

Friday, November 14, 2014

To help keep my momentum up, I am trying to set up visual cues that will help me stay focused. I've seen these little jars everywhere, and thought it would really help me stay focused. I know I have A LOT to get over to the pounds lost jar, but I will try my damnedest to get them all over there.

    I'm going to do this... but I think i'll use smaller pebbles. I have some glass ones that are really pretty, and I could do one per pound. I had a total of 145lbs to lose, now 120lbs... that's more than the whole person I'll be when I'm finished. (115lbs). So I could put that many pebbles in and move them every pound.

Week 1, and down 4lbs

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

It just goes to show, that if I put a little effort in, I can get results. Some of the things I have been working on this week have been:

Portion control (weighing and measuring)
Mindful eating (not just eating cause I'm bored, angry, sad etc)
Moving (although I haven't been to the gym yet, I've taken walks with the kids)
Water (Started drinking 8 cups daily, as oppose to 1-2)
And most importantly, cutting out the fast food and junk.

Next weeks goals are to get back to the gym, and on a regular workout schedule. emoticon emoticon

November's Goals....better late than never

Thursday, November 06, 2014

After being MIA for what feels like forever, I am back. I have felt ashamed and disappointed in myself, gaining back most of the weight I had lost. However yesterday I stopped feeling sorry for myself, and decided things will only get worse if I don't stop. I need to stop hiding from life by comforting myself with food. I really think I can be my own worst enemy. So instead of hiding out, and being depressed about my lack of self control, I am here to break old habits, and start new ones.

I plan to stop drinking pop all together. emoticon
Drink lots, and lots of water emoticon
Being accountable by tracking everything that goes into my mouth.
Making better choices when it comes to food emoticon
And checking in with Spark, because I know when I don't, that's when the weight creeps back. emoticon
Also, slowly but surely, I need to get my butt back to the gym.... just so darn nervous.

Take care emoticon

Before and after 70lbs lost picture.

Sunday, October 20, 2013

After losing and gaining, I felt like I had lost my way a little. I was feeling depressed, and was only looking at the big picture, instead of being happy for all that I have accomplished so far.
Before I never worked out. Ate fast food ALL the time, and lived life in the background.
Now I love going to the gym. I make meals myself at home, and enjoy and get involved in life.
Over the summer holidays I gained almost 15lbs, and was very ashamed of myself for slipping so quickly into my old habits. Now I finally feel like I am on the right track again. I had a bump in the road, but will never give up.
This morning when I got up and weighed myself, I was happy to see that in total I have lost 70lbs since Jan 2013. My next goal is to get to onderland!

The picture quality isn't that great here.

I am very thankful for all of my spark friends, many of you helped me more than you will ever know.

    the most important thing i have learned through out this journey - is that the only thing that matters the most is that you jumped right back in and did not quit!! emoticon Success is never a straight line - buts lots of ups and downs!!

But even great is sliding back and realizing you can stop it and keep moving forward!
