December 2- The First Day of the Rest of My Life

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

I have made promises and promises to myself that I will get back on track and do a good job of watching what I am eating and work out. This lasts about one day, and I am tired of this happening. I am the only one that can change this. I think that part of the problem I had in the past was that I was not fully committed and ready to start the rest of my life healthy. I am scared to wiegh in this week because of Thanksgiving. I don't think I did as bad as I am thinking, but bad enough that it won't be a lose this week. I read an article today that came from Kimbensen.com. This lady looked at it as one pound to lose every time instead on a big number. That is what I need to do. Be happy when I lose one pound, it is better than gaining. I even took out the 100 calories snacks and placed them on top of my refridgerator. I thought that this would help me choose healthy snacks instead on non-healthy foods. So far, it has been working. I have even beeen taking them in my lunch for my dessert. I am currently reading the Biggest Loser 30-Day Jump start. These people did it at home and I know that I can too. So tomorrow, December 2, 2009, is the first day of the rest of my life. I am committed to get healthier and I know that I can do it. It all starts tomorrow!! I will get this weight off!! emoticon

    Much Success to you, you have the right idea--don't pressure yourself, just take one day at a time, 1 pound at a time. Enjoy the journey

Getting Back on Track

Friday, October 23, 2009

Lately, I have been gaining weight instead of losing it and I've been trying to lose the same 10 pounds for a very long time. In fact, with the two pounds I gained last week, I am pretty much where I started 14 months ago. Geez, how frustrating. When I was a sophomore in college, I was able to lose 40 pounds. I was dedicated, watched what I ate, and kept track of points. I hated doing this because it was so time consuming. I think I will have to do it again, to make sure that I do not go over my daily limit. I hate to think that I will have to hall around a note book to keep everything written down, but if it means that I can get back on track, then I am willing to do this. I really doin't know what caused me to get off track in the first place. I really want to do this. I don't want to have the heart problems that run in the family when I get older. I want to get healthy now and live that life style the rest of my life. Seeing my mom try on a lot of smaller closthes and have them fit, makes me wish I could do that too. I know I can, I just have to set my mind to it and loose the weight. I may need a little extra motivation from all my friends, but I WILL DO IT!! I have seen my mom lose over 60 pounds. I know that if see can do it, then I can too.
I WILL get skinny and live a healthier life :)

Me and My Beads

Sunday, June 21, 2009

About two weeks ago, my mom and I bought troll bead bracelets. Each month we put money into a bank to save up for something that we would like throughout the course of out diets. My mom read an article on line about non food rewards for yourself during your weight loss. My mom and I decided these bracelets would be the perfect things to do and reward ourselves with. We use the money in the bank to buy the beads. We reward ourselves with one bead each time we loose ten pounds. She has five beads and I have one. She has done a much better job throughout the course of the diet than I have. I would really like to get a second bead. In three weeks, I am moving to a new town where I will be teaching in the fall. I would like to get my second bead before I move. That means I need to loose 5 pounds in three weeks. This is very doable. I need to concentrate on eating healthy and cut back on the snacking. I will get my second bead before I move!! emoticon

    Think of your healthy eating lifestyle as homework - you would expect your student's to do their homework because that will help them become better - so healthy eating will be your homework and I know you will get that second bead! Be encouraged you will get there - it all takes time and discipline.
