Hopefully I will get consistency back...?

Friday, July 04, 2014

Last week gained a .lb, this week gained 2? Wasn't journaling as great but still felt I was making good choices. I do remember stuffing some unwanted carbs in my mouth. emoticon Back to strict journaling since two doctors have told me (you need to be aggressive in getting this weight off), it's in my best interest health wise to get this weight off (risk of cancer/knee surgery) e-gads. I better but my hips to the grindstone and take myself seriously. I need to make this my #1 priority and yet I let things slide, or get in the way, or I'll get back on track can do. I need to treat this like I did quitting smoking. I am going to hang tough and not be beat. Wish me luck.

Yes. It all comes back to that hard part of watching what I eat and then writing it down. I do not know why this is such a problem for me. I start out excellent at beginning of week, then next thing you know I am slowly losing control.......
Not of what I'm eating but of my life. I always put everything else first and I have got to stop that cycle. I am the most important thing to do on my list and If I do not start putting me first, I may not be around to continue to do for others. I did continue to lose this week even though I did not journal well. Back on Band Wagon today and will take one day at a time.

    I am amazed at what I learn about food when I journal so even if I eat too much, every day I learn something new.

Can I?? or will I??

Starting anew....those words used to haunt me every time I would start again at trying to be a healthier me. Others would support me, but inside I knew they were thinking, "what makes you so sure this time? You've failed before?". I knew they were thinking this because each time I would be thinking the exact same thing.

I said those words again recently but this time I don't feel haunted. The reason being, is I learned something about myself from finally quitting smoking, which I also attempted over and over again. What I learned is that it may take many times and that's okay, it just shows that I won't quit trying and that makes me a winner.

2 Steps forward, one step back.....but keeping taking those two steps forward and even though you may slide back over and over again, eventually those steps forward overcome the ones that take you back.

I can't wait until I can say I finally overcame, but I will not be haunted again with self-doubt. I know I can make this happen one step at a time.

    Thanks Steve, I certainly hope so. One day at a time. That's how I did it with the quitting of the cancer sticks. It is just another journey with the same ending. Becoming healthier then I was the day before. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Congrats on quitting smoking! With the strength you found doing that and learning about your determination you are a lot more self aware of what you are capable!

Best wishes as you take every step along your path!

2 more days.....

Monday, January 28, 2013

I have two more days to first weigh in at TBMP.

I have been tracking my meals, where I eat, who with and how hungry I am at the time. I have been taking advantage and having whatever I want, plus it has been my birthday weekend and that was a lot of fun. I know that thursday I will begin counting calories and buckling down.......I can't wait to begin the journey


Ony "you" can make the choice!!

Good Afternoon:

We are all human and can make mistakes......just always remember to pat yourself on the back when you stumble, instead of beating yourself up.

Think of it as a fork in the road to a lifestyle. To the left is the lifestyle of perserverance and great rewards. To the right is the lifestyle of self-doubt and little change. Only "You" can make the choice, "no one else"!!

& For every two steps forward, there can be a step back, but that's okay! Keep on track and those steps forward will always out distance the steps back!!

Hope you are thinking of yourself today and making the best choices you can, your body, enrgy & health will thank you with great benefits in the long run.

Take these thoughts for today from someone that has been coming along, one slow step at a time, but thankful for each and every one I took!! emoticon
