Not doing so well...

Monday, September 30, 2013

Well I have 2 weeks left of my first 8 week nursing classes. I am back up to 225. Disappointing from getting down to 197. I am so very tired though. I don't know what I am going to do to motivate myself through 2 years of this.


Dang It

I've gained back what I had lost since January. Oh no. But, I have started a new challenge, starts tomorrow. Also am taking a Women & Wellness class in which I was required to make a fitness plan and record what steps I take to reach my goal. This is an 8 week challenge and an 8 weeks class. Hopefully having both these things will keep me on track. My goal for the 8 weeks is 15 pounds. That will put me 2 pounds lighter than where I was before I gained it back.

    For my class, I have stated I will do at least 30 min. 3x a week. I talked with a Quit Smoking coach and am supposed to trade one time I know I smoke, for me first thing when I get up, for something else, I think when I want a cigarette, I am going to either walk, walk up and down the stairs, or something to that affect.

So, I am back at 204 again...This is really starting to suck. No progress in 2 months. I am definately NOT going to reach my goal by August. Yay me! So, I am re-evaluating my goal. It is reset to 175 for right now. Then 150 will be a longer term goal. I am disappointed, but can only point the finger at myself.

    We all keep messing up. Losing weight is a challenge, all right! We have to just keep doing our best. The Food Tracker is a wonderful tool. When I KNOW I haven't eaten that much and how could I gain, well, I start tracking my food again, and surprise, could I eat that much? It's all about developing healthy habits and that sometimes takes longer than we imagine it will. Hang in there.

    I have found that learning to let go and let myself off the hook has helped me get back on track. Don't be too hard on yourself for not reaching your original goals. Instead focus on smaller goals that you have accomplished, like drinking water or eating a serving of vegetables. Once you start focusing on the positive then your longer term goals will seem achievable.

    Welcome to Sp. Don't be disappointed; review your nutrition trackeer and see where you maybe strayed; go back to the basics of measuring food; eating off a smaller plate; cutting out processed foods and eating more fruits/veggies and getting more water. Unfortunately there is no rule book, it is for ever changing like raising a child.

Good luck.

It's getting warmer!

Thursday, April 04, 2013

Yay, it's starting to warm up. I have been working out every morning for 4 days in a row now. Hoping to stick with it everyday all month and see what I can do. I am going to go to water aerobics tonight, right now it is planned to be a once a month thing. Might turn into once a week, just need a change and a chance to get out of the house. So, April 1st I weighed in at 204, I am back at 200 this morning. I am so glad I got an early start this morning, not as early as the other days but I can have the house tidyed up and get the boys outside before lunch. That is the plan.

Feeling low...

Sunday, March 31, 2013

So, I have definately stayed at 200 all month. At least I did not gain. I am gonna enjoy today as best as I can and Monday I will start fresh. I know I can do this and I know how. I just don't know why I am having trouble.

    You guys are great. And 200 was my goal for a long time, especially 60 pounds ago. I have come too far to beat myself up now and quit.

    Here is a thought to cheer you up - You are at MY GOAL WEIGHT! That's right. I want to be 200lbs. I have lost 10 so far and have 40 left to go. I never thought I would EVER get this heavy but a series of bad eating choices, night shift and hormone problems all factored into that gain. I bet you look FABULOUS! I am so proud of you for hanging in there and doing what you need to do...who cares if you are staying the same, that is just part of it and soon you will be losing again.
Keep Sparking little Sparker.

    Keep moving forward. I am in the same boat right now, and I know for me what doesn't work is beating myself up about it. If losing weight and staying positive about it was easy no one would be struggling with weight. You are a part of a large community of people who are all in the same boat as you. Some months/weeks/days it feels like all of our hard work is for nothing but here's my thought, even if I never completely lose all the weight I have gained, at least I will have spent most of my life doing the best I can to adopt healthier habits. Each day that I get outside for a 30 minute walk is heart healthy and healthy for my mind. Even if I am not burning off tons of calories. Each time that I replace soda with water and unhealthy snacks for fruit, veggies, hummus, anything healthy, I am doing myself good, even if my weight stays the same. Stay positive and keep moving forward.

    If you have a plan, and you think it's workable, then the best thing you can do is to stay with it. Glenn
