Wake up Kristi!

Monday, January 19, 2009

It's been two weeks since I started blogging almost daily. I was supposed to be reporting a 2 lb loss today and a 4 lb loss for the Month. Instead I am reporting a 2.8lb GAIN.

I need to wake up and get my butt in gear I know that losing weight does not work for me unless I drink 8+ glasses of water a day exercise 6 days a week and eat under 1500 calories. There's no cutting corners if I want to get to my goal. If I can do those 3 things I am one of the lucky one's that loses an average of 2lbs a week without fail so why do I keep doing this too myself?

    Kristi - you'll do it! Never give up!

BTW - I met Sarah (SJFINK) last night! We had lots of fun and we talked about you and Fruityful, and all our sparkfriends. :-) We know you're going to get there again!

    Kristi, you know you can do this. It's not easy, but can be done. If you have to just make one change at a time. Maybe start with drinking the water and making it a habit. Then move on and add something else to start. It's really great that your blogging, it's the first step in the right direction. Looks like a whole lot of people believe in you and know what you can do and care about you. You might have to approach the weight loss different this time, what worked before may not work now. Experiment, see what you can come up with. I know I've had to change things up this time around and go slower with my changes. I'm shooting for 2 glasses of water a day then build from that, whatever it takes. emoticon

    Keep working at it and one day you will hear that big "CLICK" when it falls into place.

    We just need to keep starting over. Again, and again and again. The only other choice is to give up, and that's not an option, right? (SJFink told me that!) Take one step at a time. You may need to do some things different than you did the first time around when you were successful. For me, I was able to pass up the ice cream and other junk around the house because I was so focused. Now, I cannot have that stuff around. It's just different this time. So, I made sure my environment was free of all that stuff. Nobody else is suffering because there's no junk in the house. They can buy it for themselves and eat it somewhere else. I deserve that level of support right now and so do you. Try making your environment temptation free!

    Losing weight is among one of the toughest things to do. The main reason is because unlike other addictions you still need to eat every day. But If I could quit smoking after 40 years you can lose the weight. Quitting smoking is the main reason I've gained 30 lbs. in 1 year but I still don't regret my choice. You just have to want to do it. I found that eating sunflower seeds kept my hands busy when I was trying to quit. So I'm going to try to use the same technique whenever I get hungry. Good luck!!!! And Never Never Give Up!!! You deserve good health!!!!

PS: Pull out your dictionary cut out the word resolute and frame it above a picture of your before and a picture of the person you would like to be shaped like after. emoticon

    Just keep plugging at it, each day make a new better choice. If yesterday you ate too much, today your goal will be to eat LESS then the day before, trying to focus on the water, exercise and less the 1500 calories could be too much to try to bite off right now. Just each day do something better then the last, work up to your main goal. You can do this, just take baby steps. Its frustrating I know because you KNOW you can do this, you've seen yourself do it before and you don't remember it being this hard, but you probably worked your way up to this before, or you had the newness and excitement keeping you going back then. Just take baby steps. Today do something better then yesterday, then tomorrow do something better then today....

Why is it so hard?

Sunday, January 18, 2009

Drink water, spend 30 min of my day exercising and then make good food choices What is that so hard about that.

My whole life revolves around food it is all I think about. I wonder if that is how people on drugs feel they know it wrong they try to resist but in the end they just really want it! If food did not effect my body the way it does I could be perfectly happy everyday just going about my day eating what ever sounded good at that time. How sad it that I really need to get a hobby! That and my pocket book couldn't handle that.

I'm hanging in there.

    Have you tried ditching the sugar, Kristi? Read some of my blogs? There are a bunch of them from Apr 08 revolving around my daughter's bday and what happened in my world (food-wise, sugar-wise, revelation-wise) at the time. I also wrote a pretty huge blog recently that might mean something to you. It's titled "My turn".

I'm still pulling for you to figure out the elusive thing that will make all of this fall into place for you! One change at a time. It sure sounds simple, doesn't it?

{{{Hugs}}} for a good Wednesday! ~Nina

    I know exactly where you're coming from. I am right there with you. Good job planning your meals today. I made my tracker public and I'm going to get back on track today. I went grocery shopping first thing and stocked up on all the healthy stuff that I like. I'm going to set myself up for success today. Planning meals, getting my workout clothes in order so I can go to the gym, etc. Keep on pushing and trying Kristi. We did this before, we CAN do it again. emoticon

    Ashleighgal is right it is can be an addiction. It's hard to break out of that deprivation mentality. But you keep hangin in there because you know this is where you should be and what you should be doing.

I'm still betting on you. I know it can be really hard at times, but then suddenly you'll get that "aha" moment. I have faith that it's around the corner for you. :-)

    It is an addiction. And think if someone addicted to a drug had to try to find a way to deal with their addiction and still do the drug every day. That's what we have to deal with, we are addicted to food but we can't live without either.
Good job hanging in there.

I made a step in the right direction today! =)

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Ok so my day started of crappy stuffing my face left and right. At about 3:30 I decided to get on my treadmill and do my workout ( if you know me you know it's hard for me to workout if I don't do it first thing in the morning.) When I was done I felt so good that I took a shower and ran up to the closest store and bought some Spinach, Boneless skinless Chicken, wish bone spritzer and a hard boiled egg. I also bought some apples, oranges, banana's and strawberries. Last but not least I bought some SF Jello for my last night snack. I'm not sure about this one since I'm not a fan of Aspartame but, we shall see.

If all goes according to my plan I am then going to get up in the morning and do my workout!

Wish me luck! emoticon

I have been sparking a few years now and still haven't reached my goal but still working on it. I was looking at your pictures and I can tell by your smile you seem truely happy in your marriage, Congratulations. We aren't very far apart in our starting weights and your blog was done on my 29th birthday so I will be checking back in on you. Sorry to have rambled on and on. Keep up the great exercise and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  Hi sounds good. I wasn't to sure about the SF jello thing either because I don't loke aspirtame either, but I thought it was really good. I have only tried the orange and strawberry so I dont know how the others taste let me know how you liked it. If you compare the SF to the regular the SF has only 5 cals and the reg has 100 cals so I will learn to love the aspirtame to lose weight. Congrats on these steps though that is wonderful. You go girl!!!!!

    Way to go on making the changes. With good foods in the house and your working, out sounds like a combination that can only bring good things. Stay positive and keep blogging.

    You can do this! Every day I wake up with one goal in mind and that is to lose the weight. So far this week, having that single thought has helped me stay in my calorie range and exercise every day. I know you can do it. Just think about what you what accomplished by the time you make that Vegas trip in August.

MAKEITSHINE09 1/14/2009 9:41PM

  I know what you are going through. I am still doing good most of the time I have had to get all the bad stuff out of the house and get the good stuff that I havent liked eating before. I am getting use to things now and I know that you can do it too. Keep your head up and keeping stepping forward.

I am not giving up!

Sunday, January 11, 2009

Although it feel like I gave up the last 2 days I am not! I have my workout clothes on now and even though I did not do anything I said I was going to do this week I am going to walk my 5K again today just like I did last Sunday.

Over the last 10 mo. I have gained 50 pounds which is 1.25 a week on average. This week I started out weighing 210 pounds I did good for a couple of day but, then I stopped doing good and went back to no exercise and stuffing my face in result the scale said 211.8 this morning. The way I look at is I have a choice I can either be 260 pounds again in 10 months or I can be 159 pounds again in 10 months. I really hope I chose to be 159 pounds again. emoticon

    You can do this. You did better this week then you have the week before and that's how to make changes that stick. My weight went up my first week back too, the next week it was down what I had gained and a little bit more. Don't let it derail you.
