OMG I'm so mad at myself

Sunday, August 16, 2009

Okay here we go, I'm not setting a good example and I should be.
I've been way depressed and eating and eating and eating. I've gain 13 pounds back...ouch not good!!!! So today I'm setting a new goal. I'm going to to go the gym 7 days a week, and lower my carbs a lot. No sweats, No Pizzas, No No No No to everything I have been eating in the last month. I feel awful and look it too!!!! So as of today I'm really starting over. I'm going to walk run my dogs everyday too!!! Wish me luck emoticon

  Good work, it always helps when I cut out everything bad for me. I don't crave it as much. You know that 7 days might be a little unmanageable. Maybe you should make a more reasonable goal, like 6 days a week. And then if you do go 7 you'll feel like you went above and beyond. It can be discouraging at times. What else could you do when your depressed? I need to find a replacement for drinking. Too many calories.

So much for starting over!!!!

Tuesday, June 02, 2009

Well yesterday we no longer have a car do to some one ramming into are rear. My husband is not working, I'm stuck at home and not able to go anywhere. It's hot out side. I'm thinking tomorrow morning I'll get up earlier and take the dogs for a walk so it's not too hot. Or something in that matter, maybe to clean my house, deep cleaning that makes it worth a work out. I don't know, I feel fat and so ugly today and depressed. I haven't been turning to food which is good. I've actually cut back knowing that I'm not working out right now. Great timing to for joining fitness challenges. so tonight of r tomorrow I will start something I just can't sit around when it's been my life lately. Just having a crappy day and need to change that if I can!!!!

    Yup, she's right. Take that from someone who restarts A LOT!!!!!! (which I hate that I do that.) But you'll come to a point where you are finally fed up with it and you just do it. That's how I got and lost 6 pounds by FINALLY working out more and eating better all the time.
I have felt like that and still do. We need to focus on what we will look like and feel like after reaching our goals instead of how we look and feel now. I have FINALLY lost 6 LBS. So, far that's all. And I still feel like that. Probably will until I reach my goal, no matter how good I start to look. That's just human I guess.
Anyway. Things will get better and YOU WILL reach your goal. I have faith in you. :)
Oh, and sorry I've slacked and been M.I.A. for a while. I am trying to spark again. I hope we can keep in contact and also finally meet up to workout together or something. Sorry I haven't been a good buddy. I'll get better. :)
Take care. I'll talk to you soon! Have a blessed day! You're in my prayers.
God's love,

    You sound like you have a lot of stress going on in your life. Try not to take it out on yourself. I am thankful to hear that you are okay or your family is okay from the accident. Everything is temporary. Including the good stuff!!! I am struggling right now with my husband's gambling. You know how it is here in Vegas. He gambles at the gas stations! He started going to meetings but he has not taken the step to really stop. Guess what? You can start over anytime you want. Ten times a day if that is what it takes. Cleaning house is a good workout and makes you feel like an accomplishment has been done. I had to give up my car in February (a lease) that was just too much money. I have not been without a car in 20 years. I have to totally depend on my husband in the matter and I don't like it. Our company has been struggling for awhile now and I am looking for outside work. So what does this all mean? I am alive and have a real life. I get up and move through it all. It is tough times but we are starting out of it. It will all be okay. What am I grateful for today? I have a roof over my head, food in my fridge and I am not dead. Ha, ha. No really. Hope my rambling helps. I think I wrote more than you did!!! Laurie

Starting Over

Thursday, May 21, 2009

Okay I've stayed the same for quite some time and now I'm starting a new goal. I've lost 30 pounds and have stayed here long enough that I need to start over. I'm now giving up I'm just starting a new tracker, I'm tired of sitting still and working so hard and not moving. I'm starting a new plan of eating by using the sparkpeople tracker, no more low carb no WW just spark peoples tracker. I have no excuses. I have a computer to come to and a gym to go to so here I start all over.
Starting weight (2007) 245
Current weight (2009) 215 new tracker
Goal weight 155
Wish me luck and pray for my body to work for me. I see this has worked for a lot of people so it should work for me.

    I have just started doing that the past week and a half to 2 weeks and that's how I lost the 6 LBS. No WW, still writing food I eat down so I still now how much I consume and all. But it's mainly healthy. And the food pyramid thing too. :D So far it's working. LOL

Way to go. I pray you're still doing GREAT!!!!

    I have tried all diets. The only thing that works steadily for me is the food pyramid. Yep. It totally has to be about portions and healthy foods. It is a way to live like weight watchers. I don't like all the points and stuff but the food pyramid is great. I think it is great that you are starting fresh. Don't give up!

Even though I want to give up I'm not going to

Saturday, May 16, 2009

I've been on the atkins diet and it's easy but really hard for me. I don't mind doing it but I can't feed my kids on it so I give them yogurts and lots of fruit. It's been hard not to take a bite r two. I haven't over done it but I want to move past the atkins diet. Even though it works it's not what I need I was tired all the time. I worked out 70 or more minutes of cardio but when I did adkins it as only like 30 minutes and I had to take a nap that day.

I've been told you always again weight when you go off of it too. I've been pretty good about adding in my carbs, I choose better carbs not just sugar cookies and white bread. If I've added them in , it's been high fiber breads and stuff. I was 208 last months and now I'm 215. I've added strength which I've put off and carbs. I feel like a failer but I'm not going to give up. I don't know where to turn. I have registered my daily food and not gone over but on mothers day. I've stayed in the lower part of the calories and stuff. like I'm suppose to get 1610-1900 and I stay with in 1600-1700 at the most . I love working out and I don't give it up unless I HAVE to. I'm stumped though. I'm not losing and am very afraid of gaining and I don't understand how I am when I work out 5x's a week and stay with in my calorie zone!!!!! What in the world do I have to do to lose????? should I go back to adkins get down to my weight and work from there??????? I really down;t want to but maybe I HAVE TO. What do you think???


Oh no why I'm I loosing motivation???????

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Okay, For some reason I'm loosing motivation, getting down on my self. Well it started Saturday. We did NOT go any where I planned on going to the gym and we didn't. We sat around and did NOTHING. You are who you hang out with. When my hubby is home he sits down and does nothing. Specially on the weekends. I asked if he wanted to go to the gym and he said yes the day before. Well that didn't happen. So same thing Sunday. then today I wanted to wait till he got home so he could go and wam nothing again. when he's not home I go to the gym I clean more and just get up and out. But when he's home I do NOTHING. I'm tired of that. I'm not blaming him but he's not supportive to me losing weight at all. I've done this all on my own. That's why I joined this to help motivate me. I should have gone when he came home and I didn't. He's off tomorrow But I'm going to get up and go, with or with out him. I haven't gained thank goodness, BUT I have not been losing either. I want to lose 5 pounds or more before the 4th and I do NOT see that happening. emoticon

    HI Cara,
I understand the situation that you are in. I have been in that rutt for 6 years now. I would ask my husband to go to the gym and work out, he would always have some kind of excuse, so I would end up doing nothing right along side of him.. I have come to realize though, that I am not going to lose my weight just sitting around.. I have stopped asking my husband if he wants to go to the gym and I have started doing it all by myself.. Its kind of invigorating, knowing that I can do this all by myself.. I don't need anyone, I just need determination. I know you can do this. You might not realize it, but you are very strong. I couldn't believe how devoted you were with the weight watchers.. You were my inspiration. So i know you can do this girl.. Just keep at it!

    Hey there, Cara. I know what you are talking about losing motivation. That's why I am here. I have lost that motivation so many times while trying to lose weight, and now I am back where I started! You can do this! All you have to say to yourself is. . . "I don't want to feel like this anymore. . ."

You will pull through . . .

    You can do this!!! I say go when it is convenient for you. I work out at 5:30 in morning. It is my time and it is sacred. If I waited for my husband, I would never get my exercise in. Once I started losing the weight, he started coming around. Now, he is motivated to exercise because I can out run him.

  You can do this CARA! if he doesnt want to be supportive then you just need to step back and say, I need this for me! NO ONE ELSE! Dont let him dictate what you do. You are a strong beautiful woman!
