Day 10 - down 2 pounds

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

I'm on Day 10 of Linda Spangle's 100 Days of Losing Weight program.

This has been a real eye opener for me to say the least.

First I learned to look back at how I used to be. Next I made a commitment to do it anyway ( days 2 & 3 ). Then I set up boundaries & a magic notebook ( days 4 & 5 ). With my many, many years of trying to lose weight, none of these ideas ever crossed my mind.

Next was learning to say " I'll have some later " in order to protect my program followed by a mantra of I can do this!!! ( days 6 & 7 )

All of this is great but days 8, 9 & 10 have been the most difficult for me thus far. In all my years of trying to lose weight I've never, ever asked for help. I figured that it was my problem so I'd have to deal with it myself - WRONG!!!!.

I'm learning that asking loved ones for help, looking for a little support & graciously accepting compliments will help me reach my goal faster. This is new territory for me.

Funny story - While drinking coffee this morning, Hubby walked in and said "You look very nice today " . Of course I was in my pj's, no make up & quite blurry eyed - REALLY????? You have to know this guy to love him & I do!!!!!!

    I love Spangle's 100DWL book. It has been a real eye-opener for me as well. I am having a hard time asking for help, too. I don't know that I will be able to master this one, but I will try.
Thanks for writing an inspiring blog. Reading other Sparkers' blogs about 100DWL is great review and reinforcement for me.

    emoticon You are doing great! I'm proud of you buddy. I bet you did look nice this morning.

I'm on day 3 and working on eating at the table - this is a big thing for me as I am usually in front of the TV for meals.

I used to be that way but now I'm different!!!!

Monday, September 08, 2014

Today is emoticon of Linda Spangle's 100 Days of Weight Loss and already I've learned a lot.

I've come to realize that my past does not determine my future and that my previous failures have no effect on my ability to succeed now.

I used to be like that but now I'm different:

I used to stop exercising after 1 week but now I walk 30 min a day 5-6 days a week.
I used to eat all the wrong foods but now I eat healthier.
I used to give up on a diet after 2 weeks but now I'll continue so I can achieve a healthy lifestyle.
I used to have a very low self esteem but now I'm feeling optimistic.
I used to never drink water but now I drink 8 glasses a day

I'm keeping a daily journal so won't be blogging much but I thought that for today it was important.

My goal for September

Sunday, August 31, 2014

I can hardly believe that summer is coming to an end. It happens to be my favorite season, so I'm hoping it'll stay a little longer. I'm hearing that Sept will be warmer than Aug was, here anyway, and I'm hoping that's accurate!!!!

I do like the 4 seasons, though and with a new one approaching, I'm going into evaluation mode. I made some progress this summer by tracking my food & staying within calorie range. In doing that I made an alarming discovery. My iron level is way too low which probably accounts for the sluggishness that I experience most days. I've done my research so I now know what to eat. Now I have to do it!!!!

My goal for September is to get my iron intake into the normal range without taking a supplement.

My first Sparkversary

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

A year ago today I joined Spark People emoticon . I've learned a lot in one short year. I've learned the importance of eating healthy emoticon emoticon combined with daily exercise emoticon emoticon . I've learned that lots of things in moderation are ok emoticon emoticon . I've learned that the love and support from family & friends is one of the most important things one can have emoticon emoticon .

I'm a little disappointed with my weight loss this first year, but I have a new determination to succeed. My second year will be a great one where I reach more goals. I know that I can do this because I have some of the best Spark friends anyone could ask for!!!!!!!

emoticon Sue

    I figure we're on a healthy lifestyle JOURNEY - which means EVERY good choice and healthy step I take brings me closer to my goals. You may not have arrived at the weight loss goal you set for yourself yet, but you are still showing up here and actively working at being healthier. That's a success in my books!
