Today I had to catch myself.........

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

I found myself wondering when am I going to meet my goal, I havent really sat down to plan a meeting date, I have been just taking it one step at a time, I found myself wondering why I am not farther down the line than I am, but yet I had to change my thinking around and be thankful that I have come this far. Its tricky this weight loss issue. I am a very positive person, but at the same time I have my down moments, too. Its funny though because as soon I feel one of those moments coming on, I think how far I have come, which in turn means how much closer I am to my goal. I am almost half way there, I will find out on Monday if I am or not. I hope to be. That is half way to the victory line. LOL I have come a long way just to get to this point and there is no stopping...............

Reflecting on myself can happen at any moment, its never an appointed time. Its funny because I find my reflections to be those of all that has passed and the things to come. I look at what I have lost in the weight lost (Insecurities) and what I am gaining (Confidence). Sounds cocky huh!?

I looked back at the aches in my body that I had and never went to the doctor to have them looked at because I never thought twice about them, but I have realized that they were all weight related because now with the weight gone I can see my body couldnt hold all of that weight. The aches and pains have left!!!

I have looked back at my parenting skills and although I was doing alot with my daughter at home, I didnt feel comfortable going out.

I used to hate working out, now I can't let a day slip by without me working out in some form. I have even progressed to running, I am starting to get irritated by those who make excuses because there arent any, there are days when I am tired and drag my self into the gym to workout, why ? because its going to make me better in the long run, and the other thing is why wouldn't I want to take care of myself. I guess you can see I talk to myself!!!

I found myself looking for some of my clothes that I have outgrown. I had alot of capri's to wear last year thanks to Fashion bugs, buy 1 get another for a dollar sale. I donated those capris last Sept to Goodwill, yet, I had forgotten the other day when I found myself looking for them.

    Red you are making very important lifestyle changes, and I am so happy for you. There is nothing easy about change, but if you want it bad enough every step is worth it!!

    I doubt I will be making the challenge. I am only down 7 lbs, I doubt I will lose 3 lbs this week. I am going to focus, but 7 lbs is good too.

Words escape me today although my thoughts are many, just can't jot them down today, because my mind is going in 10 different directions. Multi-tasking and multi- thinking is crazy right now. I have to sit down and think...................take a moment and breath, just relax and get some order in these thoughts clouding my head for the moment.


Memorial day & Realizations........

Wednesday, May 16, 2007

I cannot wait to see what my weigh in will be on the day of Memorial day. I really hope to reach my goal of 229. I started out 244 and planned to weigh in at 229. So we will see. I will be going to the GNC that morning to do my weigh in and reveal the results, We have 12 more days, I am still not eating meat, I want to see how it goes, I am eating my eggs, and beans. I have stepped up my plan to work out 2 times a week a few days a week. I did that Monday!!! I am going to aim for today. I really want to lose this weight, and I am trying to avoid hitting a Plateau. I want my body to lose more than its usual 5 lbs this month. My goal this month was to knock off 8.5, but I have til the last day this month. I am just glad to be losing in all honesty. There was a point where I felt like I just couldn't lose, I wasn't in the right timing though! Meaning I was going through some things, I didn't have the support I needed then and I wasnt focused enough.

    I know exactly how you feel. Just like you believed in me and I made it, you can do the same.

    With the mindframe you are in right now, I have no doubt that you will get to where you want to be.
