I am proud of myself!

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Although I have not been able to get back on track over the last 2 years I just wanted everyone to know that I am just happy that for the last 3 months I have figured out how to maintain. Now I'm not happy that I am currently maintaining a weight between 235-240 but, I'm just glad that I have figured out how to maintain so that when I get the motivation to finally reach my goal weight I will know how to maintain this time!

It was hard to let everyone know after my very public weight loss that I had fallon off the wagon and that I'm having a hard time getting back on so thank you to everyone that appreciates honesty.

    You can absolutely do this!

You have taken the first step ... you've admitted you fell off the wagon to a LARGE audience. You're on your way!

Congrats on taking the first step toward taking back control!

    Thank you for sharing. Oh how I know that maintenance is something we must learn. I hope this is the time for me. You will find the time for you. It will pop up at the weirdest time and you will wonder why you did not see it before. We need your blogs and encouragement.

    I am so glad to see you back on the boards
I am proud of you, for your honesty and for the courage you show in not being afraid to start over as many times as it takes.

When I quit smoking it wasn't at the first attempt or the 2nd, 3rd,etc, but eventually it stuck and I have to believe it will with this also,

    Maintaining is a trick itself! When you are ready you will start to lose again. I am so proud of you for hanging in there AND for posting this!

    I do appreciate your honesty. It's what has kept me going. Normally, I would have given up a long time ago, but I have not. I haven't seen the success I had two years ago, but I have not given up. You are AWESOME! emoticon

I totally lost sight of the big picture

Monday, January 25, 2010

Well here it is almost the end of January and I'm back where I started at the beginning of the month. If my goal was to maintain then that would be GREAT but, I need to lose over 100 pounds first. For me what it is .. is the exercise if I dont want to exercise which I rarely want too then I dont eat right either but, if I do workout then my eating and water drinking usually follows along.

The first time I made this work I did not allow myself any mistakes for the first several months because I knew I wasn't strong enough to get back on track so this time I was trying to allow a few mistakes her and there but, the fact is i am and all or nothing type either I'm eating right drinking all my water and exercising or I do none of them.

I know I'm not the only one that does that!!!!

    I'm all or nothing, too. It can be so tedious sometimes to have to avoid even a single "day off" for fear of it turning into a week or a month. Just want to add my voice to the ones cheering you on - I'm in a similar boat, having lost all the weight I wanted in 2008 and reached my goal weight before putting back on almost half of it in the last few months. I'm now headed back to goal, and I know we can both make it yet again. Good luck to you!

    Hey there!

After losing 80 lbs in 2007 and now having gained it all back, I have realized that I am the exact same way. Here I am....back where I started from three years and trying to find out what am I going to do now? I guess just need to do what I know is the right things for me!

    This is such a hard journey. You are gonna find what works for you now....I recently learned that I can not loose weight by eating whatever I wanted and still exercising. I could maintain, but not loose. Duh, genius!

Just know that you are not alone!!

    I have to stick to a routine and way of eating as I can't get myself back on track. This year I had to jump back in and so far so good. A new year to get it right!

    Well I am with you on the exercise...I HATE it!!! I am eating right but just no exercise...Unless you consider me getting up out of bed and walk to the couch exercise or strolling around Wal-Mart which I do often I walk down every isle but I just cannot stand the thought of exercising....It's like a four letter word to me!!
Plus I don't like doing things like that alone and we have no gym here unless I drive 35 miles to get to one in the next town...maybe when it gets warm again we can do a walking challenge or something to get motivated...it';s just to cold right now!!

    yeah. me, too. i either don't eat any junk or i don't eat any healthy food. really. the same with exercise - no exercise for months or two hours daily.
I don't know moderation but first i'd like to lose my weeight
then i'd like to maintain it for 5 years and maybe then I'll try to live as a normal, average adult. right now i have good enough motivation but i know i wouldn't be able to eat some cake and stop it. So I don't even start. It can be done on the short term.On the long run? I just hope so.

Well........not doing too good!

Sunday, January 17, 2010

So Thursday morning I did my weigh in and was at 233.2 I had done my exercise for the day so I thought things were going GREAT ... by the end of the night I was eating and drinking crap I shouldnt be but, was confident the next day I would be on track but, as my track record shows I was not able to do that! For the last 3 days I have been eating and not working out. I'm not sure why I do this too myself but, I was really hoping to have a 2 lb loss this week emoticon

    I agree! Make one goal for the week like no soda, once you accomplish that, add another goal back in!

You can do it! emoticon

    The only thing that can put me back on track is: no sugar, absolutely none, not even the one in the fruit yogurts...
It means lower carbs, but I do eat veggies and fruits, just not even grains till I get back on track.
And I eat loads of veggies, really, I eat them as a prescribed medicine at those times.
And also protein with every meal.
This method puts me back on track in 10 days.
Maybe you've done something similar before. try to remember what was your method that was working for you so fab. You've done it before, you can do it again. You can.

    I agree completely with Princess Nurse. Pick one of two things to work on this week. That will make it more doable !!
Let me know what you've picked to work on and how it's going.
You can do this !!

    Maybe you need to start slower...just focus on one thing this week food or exercise not both? I know last time you had a certain program or routine that worked for you, but perhaps this time you need to try something different? Just a sugestion...whatever you choose to do, I know you can do this and that you will succeed !

Thursday, January 14, 2010

So I decided that Thursdays are going to be my official weigh in day. This morning I am at 233.2 lbs which is a 6.8 lbs loss so far this year.

We have 50 more weeks to go this year so 100 more pounds by New Years is my goal that's 2 lbs a week!

Here I go emoticon
