having a rough time

Thursday, July 31, 2008

Feeling pretty down about myself right now.. I have had a major slip back on my weight loss journey.. this last friday I had a whole medium pizza to myself and then on Monday I had half of a medium pizza to myself.. then yesterday I had mcdonalds.. not to mention I only worked out once this week.. So I am pretty sure that I have gained back some of the weight that I worked so hard to lose :( I keep saying that tomorrow I will go to the gym but in this case tomorrow doesn't seem to be getting here.. It seems I am back to my old ways and it sickens me.. I need to get back on track and learn to stay on track.. no one said this was gonna be easy so why do I expect it to be...

feeling pretty down :(

    Haven't been on in awhile myself but I wanted to send you a note to say hi. I hope you're doing well. I totally understand getting off track. I've been lucky and keeping steady where I was during the summer. Don't beat yourself up over it. Just take it slow, 1 day at a time until you feel back on track. Something is better than nothing, even if it doesn't seem like much at the time. Drop me a line if you ever feel like it.

    We can ALL relate. I think I'm just starting to pull out of a slump that's lasted a couple months. But then I've thought that a couple different times only to discover I was wrong......hopefully not this time.
This week, so far, has been a good week for me. You have to keep looking ahead!! Don't look behind, what's done is done, time can't be changed.
Focus on a new day, a new attitude, a new way! emoticon
You can and will get through it, sometimes it just takes longer than we would like.
Good Luck! Keep your chin up!! Keep on smilin'!!

    Everyone has setbacks. I had one that lasted a month, My trip home. You just have to keep working towards your goal. It is never in a straight line. Tell yourself 'That was yesterday. And today is today." Hope your week goes better.

    I have SO 'been there' the others said, don't beat yourself up. Tomorrow is a new day and it's never too late to recommit to it. We ALL slide off now and again, some of us in a big way. Just try not to let it discourage you and get you back into that old self-hating, self-defeating mindset, 'cause THAT'S what defeats us, not the temporary slips! The temporary slips are just transient and the 'damage' can be undone.......the self-defeating mindset just wants to perpetuate itself and drag us down permanently, every single day! So please hang in there and don't think badly of yourself for doing the same thing we've all done along the way. And like Ultimate said, try smaller steps that might be easier to do to kind of get you jump-started again. Sometimes that's exactly what it takes. emoticon

    If going to the gym and working out is too big a step up back onto the "wagon," try something smaller. Just drink 8 cups of water, or eat a healthy food, or spend some time on the Spark site encouraging others. Then you will have started to build up some momentum again, and a little workout (maybe just walk around your home once or twice rather than the gym even?) won't be so hard to grasp. You'll be back into your healthy routine in no time!

It's just a moment... this time will pass. emoticon

    That's all right... we all slip up now and then. The most important thing is that you get back on the wagon!! You can do it darlin!

only down from here

I really have nothing to big to write about.. did a two hour workout yesterday and moved my reps up to two sets of 30.. was definitely feeling the burn all day yesterday.. doing pretty good today.. was supposed to go to the gym today but the gym is way acrossed town and well I just didn't have enough gas to go all the way out there.. which sucks.. my workout buddy had to workout alone today oh well.. I suppose i will have to do some working out here around the house.. which never really works to well for me because I can just sit down and watch tv or get online.. which is why i like the gym so much. It is so hot out today so no going outside for a walk.. I think I would die in this Jesse was really sweet .. last night while i was sleeping he went grocery shopping and bought me all the diet food I like so much because I was getting low... He is doing really well at showing me that he is supportive of my decision to lose weight... It's awesome to have someone care so much. And with the support I have my weight can only go down from here on out.. :)

    This is such a good, positive post. It does make it easier when people who care about us help us along on the journey and its those little things (like the buddy texting you and Jesse getting you the healthy food you like) that really make the journey a little easier for us. I think you are doing such an amazing job and look forward to hearing more.

So my dad has started his weightloss journey and he needed to go weigh himself.. So even though my weigh in day is not untill the 31st I took him with me to the doctors office and we both weighed in.. I lost another 7 pounds which brings me to a total of 15 pounds.. woot woot.. very excited especially since I went over the goal for the month.. my nutritionist said 4-6 lbs for the month.. I feel awesome

ever so thankful

Going through a life style change is never easy.. cutting out this and adding that.. it doesn't sound all that hard but taking the words and putting them into action is very difficult.. I am so lucky to have people in my life that are there for me and willing to help me reach my goals.. My workout buddy Rick is a definite inspiration to me.. he is doing so well with his journey and is trying to keep me up on reaching my goals.. He sends me a text message almost every time he goes to the gym which is nice.. gives me the added little push that I need..
Jesse has been a good help as well... he has definitely been my shoulder to lean on.. He tries giving me good advice that I don't always listen to but its the thought that counts right lol.. My parents are trying to do the lifestyle change as well which is an awesome help because I am not the only one going through all this... Stacy my sister in law has been on her journey for many years now and she gives me tons of great advice which I am so thankful for.. And last but not least Missa.. My bestest friend Missa has always been there for me and probably always will be.. no matter what the situation happens to be.. She has already given me her shoulder to cry on once for this journey..

without these people I don't think I would be doing as well as I am...


back at it... :)

I have been out of town for a while so I haven't been able to make it to the gym but I am gonna be going in about an hour here with my workout buddy so thats awesome... umm while I was on my mini vacation I did really well sticking to my diet.. even during the family picnic!! which I tell ya what I was really fretting over that one.. how was I gonna stick to the diet with all that picnic food right in front of me... well I had a hamburger and 1 teaspoon of everything else.. then loaded half of my plate with fresh veggies.. so I think I did pretty well... unfortunately over the last week I have had a few nights of drinking with family and friends so that packed on the extra calories.. oh well I guess I cant be perfect... I haven't eaten out in quite a while but still thinking about it daily.. I want a Whopper lol ..

I am trying to get people around me intrested in getting healthier and maybe becomming spark people!! I think I convinced maybe 2 people which is cool.. I am hoping they join... Well th tha th the thats .. alllll folks... lol :)
