Since I don't know when.

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

I have not been on Spark People since April of last year. It helped me so much but then... then I don't know. For the past 15 months I have been gorging my chubby cheeks out. Why?

There is no sense in complaining or feeling bad for myself. I logged on yesterday. And today. And I will log on tomorrow. Every step forward is a step away from my past.

    Yes! Stay with really seems to help me to be able to talk about my issues with people that truly understand my problems. Stay positive and don't look will be OK.

I just saw a blog I had posted on 03/26/12 about being half way to my goal.

Exactly one month ago I posted that and exactly one month later here I am, still halfway. Technically less! This morning I was 133.4 and halfway is 132. So I weigh 1.5 lbs more that exactly one month ago. I not only wasted a month, I went backwards.

Put-Putting Along.

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

I'm on a bad cycle.

I hadn't gone to the gym in two weeks (I just got back five minutes ago). I lost my gym buddy and therefore lost my motivation/encouragement. I went tonight though, I did good.

As for my food. I'm on this 4 day on - 4 day off kind of cycle. I just have one of those days where I'm just so hungry (or think I am) and I eat whatever I want, and large amounts of it too. The next day I do the same and then the next. I eat horribly for 3-4 days without thinking twice about it because if I stop to think about it I'll have to admit my failure. I then spend the next 3-4 days right on track. Eating within my range with lot of fruits and veggies. Then I go off the deep end one day and for the next 3-4 days. Then back on. It's been this way for a few weeks and I haven't lost any weight in a month because my good days are just counteracting my bad days.

I don't know why I keep giving in. I think it's just bad habits creeping up. What ever the reason it needs to stop. It's not going to happen this week. I know what I should be doing and that's what I'm going to try (and succeed) to do.

    Would allowing little daily splurges (and budgeting for them, so they don't knock you off track) help prevent the "going off the deep end"? The more restricted we feel, the more likely we are to toss caution to the wind and eat whatever we feel like. Perhaps by incorporating a treat daily, you can actually stay consistent with your healthy eating?

Congrats on getting back to the gym! What's your plan for the future? You can do whatever you like, now that you're flying solo. Perhaps you can pick a weekly class or two and go to those regularly, as a start at consistent gym-going? If you go more than just those one or two times, that's gravy!

I stopped!!

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

I was eating supper and I started to feel full so you know what I did...? I STOPPED EATING.

There was definitely still food on my plate but I didn't eat it!!

The clean plate club is one I've been trying to get kicked out of for a while now and I think I made them angry tonight!

    Woo hoo!

Willpower is like a muscle, the more you use it, the stronger it gets! Take this awesome "listening to your body" victory and keep building on it; soon you'll be flying toward your goals. You're doing well, keep it up!

Good luck!

    You have not given up on yourself. You now

know you are the only one that can make it

happen for you.

You have the power to succeed or fail.

You have chosen to succeed.

    Wonderful...I've been concentrating on doing this as well and finding my stomach is shrinking so it is becoming more easy to stop eating when full. Congrats!!!

Half way.

Monday, March 26, 2012

My weight tracker is in the exact middle of where I started and where I want to be.

That's a weird feeling. I feel as thought I should see more of my progress when I look in the mirror.

I thought this would be a happy time but I'm slightly discouraged. As if doing what I've done over again to lose the other half won't show me any difference either. I know I'm doing this to become healthier. But you know what? I'm also doing it to look better naked. To feel okay when I go to the beach. To look like the skinny person I feel like inside.

    I have not been focusing on the strength training nearly as much as the cardio. I'll have to make sure to work more of that in. I love this website. Any problem can be solved with the help of others going through the same situations as you! Thanks!!

    Ditto what Monica_W said. Lifting heavy weights is the way to really transform your body. Mine's finally getting whipped into shape thanks to my strength training routine.

    So that means it's time to mix it up!

I have to say that strength training (particularly lifting HEAVY weights) is the key to looking great naked. Otherwise when you lose the weight, you'll just be skinny-fat, rather than fat-fat, right? Better to be strong and toned! What are you doing for strength training these days? If you're already doing some strength training, I'd recommend stepping up the intensity by using something like P90X, the New Rules of Lifting for Women, or Body for Life.

CONGRATULATIONS on reaching your halfway point! Keep up the great work!
