Food, food, food

Saturday, July 05, 2014

Tomorrow is God and Country at our church. It is really a nice service followed by pot luck. There is so much food to choose from and so many deserts. I discussed this with my husband and we are forgoing the pot luck for fish at home. I can control the calories I eat and bypass the DESSERT table!

Why do we impose so many deadlines in our lives? We have for getting dinner ready, getting the kids into bed and so forth. Why do we impose on for weight loss?

I have been trying for over a year to loose 12 pounds. Sounds simple doesn't it? Not for me. I have had so many goal dates I just don't set one any more. To me it isn't about the length of time I lose the weight, but what I learn along the way.

I have been down to a loss of 10 pounds only to have surgery and gain it all back. There was nothing I could do about it. My husband couldn't cook for me. The church we go to cooked for 12 days and let me tell you there are some really good cooks at church. I have been trying to loose that 10 pounds ever since.

If It takes me another year to loose the final 6 pounds I will not beat myself up for taking so long. I will dwell on the fact that I am now controlling my portions, weighting and counting my caloric intake. To me that is far more important that the loss of the final .

I will eventually loose the final 6 and feel really good about getting to my goal. I will dwell on the fact that I now know the correct way to eat and feel good about myself.

    Great attitude! Great blog !

I agree with you : I no longer put a timeline on my weight loss goals. For me, setting a date builds pressure, which that tends to make me gain. So I focus on making good choices as often as possible, and trust that my body will do what it needs to do.

I shocked my system

Friday, January 24, 2014

into gaining 2 pounds. I went from 1200 calories a day to 1300 calories a day as I was in a plateau. I do believe I went down in inches, I am not one to measure, but gaining 2 pounds really set my mindset back. I am going back to 1200 calories a day and sticking with that until I reach my goal. I have been sick this week and that may have added something to my gaining weight. I have tracked my food faithfully, but something is amiss. I am not giving up, it may take longer to reach my goal, but I will continue until I do.

It's been one year

Saturday, January 18, 2014

It's been one year on 1200 calories and I am 3 pounds from my goal. Have been loosing, but not very fast. I have decided to up my calories to 1300 per day and see if I can trick my metabolism into acting a little faster to help me loose these last 3 pounds. I have enjoyed my journey on SparkPeople and believe they are helping me make wise and safe decisions in my eating. I feel I can do this and maintain with tracking each day. Any suggestions are appreciated.

  WTG on your weight loss!! I was just going to suggest upping your calories some to "shock" your metabolism. Don't get discouraged, you've done a great job!!! You'll get to your goal, you may just have to change up some things.

A New Year

Wednesday, January 01, 2014

This new year brings more opportunity to loose weight. Will hopefully get off my plateau and begin to loose these last three pounds. It has been a long journey with a break for surgery in April, but will continue to track my food and continue until these last three pounds are gone. I am not loosing for anyone but myself and the journey has been a good one. Keep rooting for me and I will succeed.
