last chance day....again

Thursday, March 26, 2009

well here i am another week just about over. seems i say this same thing week after week, i never tire of it though. these days have been some of the best in my life. i have learned how to eat better, exercise regurally, and my self confidence if rising daily. so i would have to give sp a 10 for this site. the support i get from week to week and the ideas are just heaven sent. i'm not a bordom snacker(much anymore) i stop and check myself..am i really hungry or is this just a want. i find more and more the need is not there. i don't go back for seconds unless i've sat for a minute and let what i just ate get in my stomach. sometimes again you think that tasted like more but in reality your full to the rim. i'm learning daily about myself and this site, my body, it's needs and wants, my mind..also it's needs and wants and i've met some great friends along the way. teresa thanks for taking the time to say hello daily, and cat, thank you for being my rock and sounding board at work and on line. so bring on tomorrow i'm ready. i may not hit my fifteen lb mark this week but you know what? there is always next week and the one after that. shoot i'm farther now than i ever have been. so yes i will get there from here.

    I'm glad you've had a good week and that you have a good attitude toward whatever comes your way. My SP journey has only been one of about 35 days and i can't believe how "transformed" I am. The transformation is a mental one mostly... the physical one is happening more slowly.... but the MIND part must come first! SP has changed our MINDSET! Isn't it great?! Thanks for being a great pal!

    You will get there. I am glad that I found sp I have lost the weight but still have 15 more pds to go. But with God all things are possible I know that I will get through this with the help from God and everyone here. May God bless you

    It's a great feeling that you know there is always tomorrow to get to where you want to be. I guess it's the one day at a time syndrome. Keep it up and I know we'll both get there!

monday....beginning of a new week.

Monday, March 23, 2009

Well here we are at Monday. Man what a wonderful weekend and now back to the grind. I would love to say i accomplished a whole lot this weekend but that would be way off the mark. I really did a lot but never seemed to accomplish much. I don't know if others have the problem. Yesterday we ran errands and by the time my husband and i returned the day was almost over. So out the window that day went. I mean i got a lot done in the errands but i really wanted to sit home and relax. Oh well today is a new day. I stayed on plan all weekend. We went out to eat with my daughter and her husband and my grandson saturday. They all wanted chinese. I did well, didn't overdo and enjoyed myself. The next morning it hit me. man was i not feeling well yesterday. Neither was my daughter so it wasn't just me not having that food for so long. I try to stay away from fats and such and i thought it was that. Nope, we decided no more of that for a while. LOL. Oh well i'm find now and all is well. I've not weighed myself all weekend or today. Man what a change that is. I was getting on all the time. I'm trying to wean myself from letting the scales control my progress. So I will say goodbye for now and remember...We can get there from here.

    I'm glad you had a good weekend! Funny, I did better last weekend diet-wise when I was off on a trip than I did here at home this weekend, where I can control everything! (or not! emoticon ) But I'm down 4 lbs (thanks to the walking I'm sure) so I can't be too worried that I ate chocolate last night! TTYL

Saturday...

Saturday, March 21, 2009

Well it is the first full day of spring. I do believe i will get out and get to enjoy some of it. I have to go and restock for the coming week at the store but then i'm free to be me for the rest of the day. I have yard work and such I want to get done and today seems like a great day to get it done. I've already been up had my workout this morning and ate a healthy breakfast and i''m ready to begin this day. I can't believe i got up and got moving so early. I mean i've always been a morning person but this is crazy. Now don't get me wrong, i'm loving it. With the exercise out of the way I will have more energy to get done what needs to get done. So till we meet again. we can get there from here.

WEIGH IN DAY FRIDAY

Friday, March 20, 2009

Well here I go again. Weigh in day and i lost 2 lbs.....Yippee!!!!Now i'm back on track. I had gained one and a half pounds and now i've got that off plus a bit more. Now back to the drawing board. I know what worked for me this week and I have to keep with that this week. I believe weighing and measuring my foods, and changing up my work outs helped a lot. So this week will be no different. I'm almost at my fifteen lb mark and that will put me halfway home. I can't believe i'm still at this. Usually by now I would of quit and said the hell with it. I would like to say i'm very thankful for sp for getting me this far in my new lifestyle. I believe the baby steps I learned here is what got me to this point. I believe adding one new streak at a time helps to build new habits that stay with us. The water has become a habit, exercising a big habit, and I must say the food scales are a wonder. I have ordered a new set of digital ones(that was my 10lb reward) and I can't wait till they get here. So till next time remember we can get there from here. emoticon
