Really though.....Day 5

Thursday, March 24, 2011

I am working on doing the 17 Day Diet because I am trying to make some changes. I felt as though my changes that were being made weren't changing my weight so this whole weight loss issue is full of lessons to be learned on what works and what doens't! Its a matter of science and math....

Day 5 went well, I took a break from exercise today and I am looking forward to tomorrow and I feel like I am giong strong on this diet. I don't feel hungry or as if I am missing anything. I am not saying that this is perfect. I have had moments when I wanted something sweet but at the same time I felt as though I wanted something sweet and I wanted to sneak a bite, but I know that a moment on the lips can be an eternity on the hips.....I wanted to give those cravings the boot and think about every morsel that goes into my body but make better choices.


Day 4 went very well....

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

I had a good day for Day 4 its odd how I really didn't feel very hungry and I felt as though my run on week 2 for my C25K went very well. Its hard for me to run because I felt a little tired close to the end and its a good thing that I am working my way up but its coming!!! I am determined to get back on track though....I know I can do it! I know i can!

    Day 2 went well, I prepared my meals for breakfast and lunch ahead of time. Its weird, I seem to have a little more energy right now so its no problem for me to get my day planned out. Trying to maintain school, home and get my health in order. I worked out I started my C25K! Lets see how that goes. I am running M,W & F this week! I am going to accomplish this. My body is sore and I have a goal to reach before my bday in July! Thats just a start and then I am going to continue to lose more, I have numbers I keep playing with, yet I am wondering if I should go for my goal or just until I am at a comfortable weight.

I had to give myself a pep talk though. I had to tell myself to continue on and work my way out of this rut. Its not easy when I was running with ease now its like I am starting over. But I am a CoNqUeRoR!!!! I will ACHIEVE!!!!

17 Day Diet Day 1.....

Sunday, March 20, 2011

Okay, so I have started the 17 Day Diet today!
I am looking forward to the results I have weighed in and I am working on losing weight! The book says that I can lose between 10 and 15 lbs in 17 days so we will see. I hope that I lose the 15! That would be great. This book is very helpful if you want more info check out
its through Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz and I think the Dr.'s from the Dr. Show that comes on. Its safe if you don't have any issues with Diabetes and or pregnancy. But check it out. I will be on here to keep posting my results and regular blog issues.

    I felt today was a successful day. I didn't feel as if I was hungry, which surprised me, I got a motivational talk from Mrs. Lue! She always kicks my butt when I need it. I also felt like I am human, i make mistakes now its time to fix it and move on. I can tell this time will be successful, I am still here. I want to stay here, reach my goal and also be here to motivate others and not get off track like last time. I know that this weight loss game is always changing so its up to me to lose!!! The fat has been given an eviction notice......Time for it to go!

Finding my weight back....

Sunday, March 20, 2011

I am ready to lose this weight and truthfully sometimes it feels as though I am not getting anywhere....

I know it takes determination and commitment and I am working on it. I am so ready to get back down to a healthy weight. I am working on it. Its going to come off. I know my problem is that I want to lose weight faster than possible but I also know that slow and steady wins the race.. I want to lose and never gain back again. I know this time I must stick to the plan and its a lifestyle change and that I must put me first everyday when it comes to my health, eating and maintaining a healthy weight. I want to be one of the ones who has lost and maintained the loss to never gain it back and never lose control again. I know that I have lost many times before over and over again to gain the weight back. I know I have issues with depression and self esteem but I have come to terms with the issues so I can get to a point where I don't let food be my best friend anymore and channel my energy into exercise and more positive outcomes for me.

When I am sad, stressed or angry I eat! When I eat the food tastes good, but the end results are a full tummy, extra weight and then more of a sad feeling. So in end I wind up feeling worse than I did in the beginning. I vow to work on realizing my reasons for eating and make sure I am eating to nourish my body, not my mind and exercise. I want to be a healthy body! I am going to do this for me. I know I can.I want to succeed and not fail myself. I want to teach my daughter how to be healthy and make better choices for her body! It begins with me......
