    You can do it! Hang in there! Just reading your blogs have encouraged me. You have come this far and there's no stopping you now. Consistence, exercise and healthy eating will get you there, so you are well on your way.

This time is different..........

Sunday, September 30, 2007

I got into a debate with someone about the cause of plateaus. This person tried to convince me that the only way you plateau is if you aren't doing what you are supposed to be doing as for exercise wise or eating healthy foods. I tried to explain to this particular someone that plateaus happen because people's bodies get used to the routine and calorie intake so you have to change routine, and re-evaluate your food, your exercise and your rest. Any aspect of the lifestyle change may be what needs to be changed. However this someone didn't agree with me, I just had to say okay, and keep on moving, I was not going to argue, however opinions are what your right of passage and knowledge is the key.

  Yeah, it wasn't worth the argument and as long as you know so that you can do the right thing when faced with a plateau, let them go on. We're so blessed to have SP and the right answers.

Let it go

Saturday, September 29, 2007

This week I didn't lose or gain, however I did fulfill my task on working out 2 extra workouts this week. Why does it feel like I am taking so long to get out of the 220 club. I am going to get out of here. I really want out. Sometimes it feels like forever and a day, but what day. Wow my body is about to get a check in its self. I will just have to sit down and say Look here now, its time to LET it GO, I don't want to be here any longer/ anymore than I have to so LET IT GO!! Now that TOM is getting ready to come, I need to fight some cravings, its weird how our bodies want more during that time but we don't need any more. Let it go....... (It = the weight)

    Yeah, I'm facing TOM pretty soon and I've wanted (and have) eaten everything in sight this week. I've got to put myself on lock-down again and go back to the ways of old, when I was stricter on myself. I've realized that I don't need much to push me overboard......

    You Go Gurl . You are doing soooo great. I come and look at everyones page and everyones drive and it makes me feel like I can do it too...It's not some paid actress/actor in a magazine or on TV saying "I lost 100 pounds and you can too" it's real live ppl from all walks of life, doing it and giving/getting help in the process.
