I wish I could give TOM his walking papers........

Tuesday, June 12, 2007

He is on the way and its not looking good. He always brings his friends, Munchie, Cramps and Mr Moody. Their extra baggage isn't light either. I feel like telling him to just leave and never come back. IF only it was that easy. Ughhhhhhh

What do you want?

Monday, June 11, 2007

What do you want??

I want to lose weight, I want to get down to a size that is healthy for me, a size that I feel I am at my best physically. I want to be more active physically. I want to have a fun filled life. No worries about jelly rolls, pudges, and jiggles.

What are you going to do about it?? How are you going to get there??

Exercise, Eat right, and work on plans, achieve goals. Strive for the best that I can be. I don't want to be anyone else. We are all different so therefore we have to learn to do what works best for us. This is so much of a trial and error period that it takes a moment to learn how to do things to get to where we want to go!!! I am going for what I want, and I will get it!!!

    You will get there. We all have struggles during this journey. But we must remain focused and realize what we really want.........we can no longer live for the moment! We have a goal to reach , gotta keep looking toward the prize!!

    Congrats on your weight loss, positive attitude and determination. You have done an awesome job! I started by reading this blog and just had to go back and read all of your blogs. Your attitude and determination never faltered! You knew what you wanted and knew what you had to do and you stuck with it every step of the way. That is a true example of success. Best of luck on your continuing journey. You WILL be that 5% that takes it off and keeps it off.

Failure is not an option!!!

Monday, June 11, 2007

I was thinking about last week and how I was feeling like I was failing on my plan. I went into a panic mode. Panic Mode - I feel this is where you have been sticking to your plan, (ie. eating well, exercising, losing weight) then you have a munchie attack or feel like you don't want to exercise, so you feel as though everything has just gone down the drain. Well we need to realize that one day, one moment is not going to bring the weight back on, its what we do afterwards to correct that moment or to get back on track. Plus a treat every once in awhile won't hurt. I need to realize this. Its hard not to panic, because we have been working so hard and the last thing we want to do is to go back up the hill when we have been working so hard to go down the hill. I panicked because of my fear of gaining the weight back.


If you believe it you will ACHIEVE it!!!!

I read this saying in a book today and it brought me to think about this statement!!! Do I believe in me? Yes
Will I achieve my goal? Yes


Laying it on the line........

Saturday, June 09, 2007

Last year when I started working on my weight I told myself, "Self, you are going to do this, and this will be the last time." and myself said back to me, " You've said this before." and then I told myself, " I know, but trust me this is the last time."

I remind myself of that talk sometimes, because there have been many times that I have tried to lose weight to only get so far and then gain the weight back. However this is the farthest I have ever gotten and I truly don't plan on giving up on this journey. I know that after I lose this weight I will have to work even harder to stay in the 5% who lose and keep it off. I do believe that with Spark People we will increase that number from 5% to an even higher percentage. I know that many of us will use Spark to keep the weight off, then help mentor others with their loss along the weigh! I am going to cross this finish line with my sisters from the BBQ's and trust me nothing is going to stop us!!! Our Circle is in Full Effect!!!!
