I know I should be happy but, I'm not!

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Week #1 -1.8 lbs
Week #2 -1.2 lbs
Week #3 -1.6 lbs

I don't know why but, unless I have a 2 pound per week average loss I get really depressed and I have a hard time eating right and exercising ...does anyone else have this problem?

It's kind of ridiculous that 1.4 pound difference is making me feel this way! emoticon

The only thing that has kept me from sabotaging myself is watching my best friends ticker go down! Keep it up girl! emoticon

    A loss is a loss. Besides I really think slow and steady wins the race. You are making changes, that's all that really matters.

    I sat and looked over my numbers from 2007 and once I hit 205.0 my weight loss slowed down emoticon It didn't matter how little I ate or how hard I worked out I just didn't get the 2 pounds a week that I was used to. However when I started eating what I wanted and stopped being active I had not problem gaining 2 pounds a week....so I guess anything is better then nothing ...I will just emoticon on.

And YES Fruityful that does keep me motivated!!!! You only have 4.7 pounds until the next envelope!!! emoticon and emoticon

    I know what you mean - my obsession right now isn't with the # of pounds lost, but I'm sooooooo close to being overweight and no longer obese. I was sure I would be there last week, and then sure again this week. Yet here I sit at 30.1 BMI :(

But we know that we just need to remember to keep on making the changes and we will get there . . . eventually.

    I know how you feel, but you are doing great! A 1.4 lb loss is fabulous. You are not starving, you are active, you are eating right. Just go with the flow because you know, that it will all average out. You tell me that all the time. One week, out of nowhere, you'll have a loss that balances it all out. Just like you have weeks where you don't lose anything.

If my weight loss ticker keeps you motivated, then I'll tell you that from yesterday, I'm down another 0.6 lbs...I just didn't track it since it's less than a pound, but I'm down to 276.6! That's 20 lbs total! We can do this girl. Don't let that stupid scale get you down. You are so dang active....I bet your clothes feel different on you don't they? Maybe it's time for a new update pic?

I'm not repeating yesterday!

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

I woke up this morning feeling the same way as yesterday except I decided today to just get up and get the 10,000 steps and 10 floors done for the day. It's 10:50 am and they are done! emoticon Now all I have to do it get in my 14 + Cups of water and 25-35 grams of Fiber and keep my sodium below 2300 and my Calories below 1350. I CAN DO IT! emoticon

Obstacles take two

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

So during my unproductive day ...I was think a lot about 2008-2013 and all the things that keep contributing to my not staying on track ... my daughter moving in with neighbors and have herself legally adopted at the age of 18 and then 6 months later coming home and having to re-adopt my own daughter. Making a "huge" purchase for our business that didn't workout...going back to work...my husband making a career change .. my husbands 15 year old son (coming into our lives) he's now 18 ..I'm sure there is more things that have happened in the last 5 years but, those are the ones that come to mind....I am an emotional eater and all these things SCREAM eat!!!! I need to figure out how to be an emotional exerciser emoticon

Obstacles

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

So I finally ended up drinking a "Zenergy" (It's a 2 ounce shot of Green Tea, GABA, Guarana, L-Theanine, yerba mate and Ginseng). I got on my treadmill and about 40 min into it my Treadmil over heated ...and I was only at 5000 steps ...so I had no choice .. I had to put on my warm clothes and go out into the 18 degree weather emoticon Long story short with my earmuffs and gloves I felt fine. I have about 1300 steps left for the day and I've all ready done my 10 floors for the day. I have 52 ounces of water left to hit my 14 glasses ... now all I have to do is keep myself from eating!

Trying to find the motivation....

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

...just to get out of bed! My husband is out of town...I don't work today .... but, I have taxes to work on ...the house to clean...and a workout ...for some reason I cant talk myself into doing any of them. I have been awake now for almost 4 hours and I have even left my bedroom emoticon I am less than 5 pounds away from Onderland and I only have 10 pounds until I am half way bettween my highest weight and my goal weight! The scale finally moved 1 pound today...so why is it so hard to get something done emoticon tell me why. Even my poor dogs are looking at me like really this is what we are doing today emoticon

    It is hard to get the motivation when it's so darn cold outside. I just do it as soon as I wake up, before I can talk myself out of it.

    You are in the same boat as I was yesterday. If you're struggling with the fact that you aren't doing anything today, then maybe you should just accept it and relax. There's nothing wrong with a lazy day. But, as a Spark Friend told me yesterday, don't let it turn into two!

Enjoy it! And congrats on the additional pound lost! Woo hoo!
