I figured out why I was feeling so negitive last week.....

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

In 2011 when I decided to try and lose weight again...I didn't focus so much on the number on the scale and I didn't have a goal date in mind...so anytime I lost I was just excited about the loss and I went from 240 -215 in 4 months or so....at which point I decided to work on maintaining that weight and that is what I have done for the last 2 years....now I'm ready to lose more weight but, instead of just focusing on losing another 25 pounds I'm obsessing on getting to my goal of 129 by the time I go on my 10 year anniversary cruise....and I need to emoticon other wise if I dont get to that number by then instead of being happy with the progress I did make I will be focusing on the number I didn't get to and I will feel depressed and that is dumb....so from here on out (not saying I wont have my emotional moments) I am focusing on the long term not a certain number by a certain date..... emoticon

    I have yo-yo'd dieted SO much. Usually motivated by a special occasion. Once that time came and went my weight has ALWAYS gone back up and some. This time around I am not focusing on a specific event because this is for LIFE! Your post made me remember to stay focused on that thought process (so easy to want a specific number by a specific date)

    Way to change things to a positive outlook. emoticon

I think I am in the same boat. I just started this journey on 1/8, I lost 2 lbs the first and second weeks, but this week I went up 1.6 lbs.

I am so focused on that emoticon that it is going to drive me nuts. One of my goals is to be at 130 by my wedding in May, but I am afraid that if I don't hit that goal then I won't be in a very healthy state of mind on what should be a happy day.

Instead I have decided to shift my focus to feeling better and let that number come to be whatever it will be at that time in my journey to better health.

I'm not beating myself up over it

Thursday, January 24, 2013

So I ate WAY over my calories today but, I am not going to let it get to me ...why you ask because I already did it! And because that is the first time I have ever over ate and kept track of everything I ate and tracked it sooooo....I'm actually proud of myself .....Yesterday (according to my fitbit) I ate 700 under my calories and today I ate 1100 over so all I have to do is take 400 out of tomorrow right ...and on Fridays my fitbit always tells me that I have earned over 2000 calories ... so my plan is to stay around 1500 tomorrow and then I will be good...simple math right? (we will see how my scale feels about that on Saturday) emoticon

    It is just simple math. If it all comes out at the end of the week, then you'll be good. And good job tracking it all. I know from experience that's not easy to do when you get off course. Even those numbers out and you'll be just fine...regardless of what your scale says!

    It's hard not to beat yourself up sometimes, but you are right. You already did it, what is beating yourself up going to help? In all reality all is does is make you feel worse. Either way good job for tracking it and owning it. Oh and be careful ice skating tomorrow. emoticon
