I love summer time. The boating, the swimming, the vacations,the peaceful nights on the patio, the fresh furit and great fresh veggies BUT, the activities are trying to get the best of me! I keep being in situations with family and friends and bbq and food and parties and events where I make the best choices I can but all that is getting me is maintaining and not losing. I have lost steadily since mid-march until the last 2 weeks. I hate whiny blogs so this is just me venting a bit of frustration and trying to work things out. I am also having an unusual hormonal thing that I am getting medical treatment for with another doc appt on Monday the 19th and I do think that has quite a bit to do with it.
I have loved losing weight on SP but some of my negative self talks has been creeping in goes like this: "Well you lost some weight, you made it very public and now you are gonna fail in front of everyone. It was a fluke. You have done this before and you always go back to the way you were. You cant change, you love that junky food too much to give it up. Just drive through somewhere for lunch and do the best you can.... and on and on"
So those of you who know me on here, know that if nothing else, I am positive. I find the good side of everything (it is the Libra in me!) and that I am very determined to hit my goals. So, just to make THIS very public, here is my plan:
Be prepared! (Have healthy food with me starting this weekend with 4 days at a race with crappy food everywhere!)
Stay hydrated with WATER (only 1 diet pepsi and 1 vitamin water, the rest of the day, water, water, water!)
Keep moving! (Walk 5 minutes for every hour sitting on my bootie)
Go swimming (and that does not include sitting and basting in the hot tub at the hotel)
Limit alcohol to 1 night of drinking (be the designated driver instead) of Captain Morgan and Diet Pepsi).
Tell people about Spark people (when they tell me how amazing I look!)
Show people how I have changed by representing. Let them see the new and improved Jan!
When I get home, I will have lost at least 1 pound and will feel stronger, better in control and back on my downward spiral.
So thanks for your support, thanks for reading, thanks for being here for me. You have made so much difference in this journey, I cannot tell you.
** PS. Last night when my hubby and I went jet skiing, he told me how amazing I looked and wished he had a camera because I looked so hot and so happy being out on the water. That the picture would have been my new icon for this site and my facebook page. Then he told me he wasnt going to let me go out on them by myself becuase I was so hot. LOL, that is so sweet but really hilarious because I still weigh over 250 pounds and he is the only one who sees me that way but how awesome is it that he does?????
