What I know now.......

Saturday, March 29, 2008

It has been said that when you know better you do better, however sometimes we don't follow those rules. It took me some time to do better on this weight loss journey. I would jump in lose some weight then gain it back, however after several attempts I finally got the ball rolling in July 06 and it hasn't stopped yet..... I am on a roll baby!!!

I know that counting my calories makes a big difference in what I am taking in and what I am putting out.

I know that working out and putting forth, effort, writing down results and aiming to improve over time makes a big difference.

I know that what I eat makes a difference. I can choose a healthier route of foods that provide a good energy and will burn more efficiently or I can eat something that will turn to gook and make me sluggish only to leave me worse than before.

I know that every step counts, but if I mess up it is not the end of the world and that I can continue moving on and making progress and I can turn things around.

I know that every step brings me closer to progress and I am not failing this time. I am going to achieve this and so are you!!!!! Tell me what do you know now????

I need.....

Saturday, March 22, 2008

I need to lose weight because it is an importance as for living a healthier life. I want to lose weight because I know that I will feel better in this skin. I am doing most of what I need to do with the exception of a few things that I need to work on and I know that I can do it. I can and I will achieve my goals. I am not taking no for an answer. I was walking this morning and while doing so, I started thinking about the plateau phase. I know that we get stuck in the ruck because of our bodies getting used to our routines, but I also think that we need to show our bodies and mind in sync that we are on a mission and to show persistence throughout shows our commitment that we are not giving up. I am doing this for me, I am reaping the benefits. I like seeing that the hard work is paying off and soon when I reach my goal, wow I don't even know what to do. Goal #1 is almost here.

Right now my goals are as follows:

206 (75 lbs down) Date Soon To Come
181 (100 lbs down) Date Soon To Come
155 (126 lbs down) Date Soon To Come

My main goal right now is to get to my 75 mark and then to my 100 and then my 126!!!! My original goal I had set out to do was 100 lbs, I really just want to see how I feel and how I do when I get down to 181 and take it from there. I am just so amazed and proud that I have come this far. I know that it has not been easy, yet it has been worthwhile.

Take care,

Misconceptions of One's Self.....

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

While I was watching The Biggest Loser, I saw a common thing that I have been battling within, sometimes I go straight to the bigger sizes instead of getting a smaller size that I can now fit. I often wonder if this is a normal thing and how does one get past it???

    I was just discussing that with my husband. I find that I still feel like I have to hid myself. However, I just give myself a good talk and say, "Now just last year you were wishing you could wear this size and it look good, now wear it." Sometimes that helps. I guess we just have to get use to being successful.

    When you find out let me know! I wish I had some words of advice for you, I just want you to know that you are not the only one that battles with that. I do the same thing~ with me its taking my brain a lot longer to adjust to a new body. New body -old mindset I guess.
