One of them days when I think about why
I weigh so much, why its hard to lose? Because I ate too much of the wrong foods, now I am trying to lose weight by eating the right combination of food.
one of those days where I wonder how long until I get to where I want to be? I guess as long as I stay on plan, use a cheat moment as a cheat moment and not as a fall to stop working but allow myself a treat here and there to not feel deprived but at the same time know that each moment is a moment that will determine my success or my failure rate.
one of them days when I keep assessing my goals My goals have to keep changing because I don't want to become monotonus in my goals , cauring myself to plateau,, plus once I become a pro at one level it only makes sense to move up and intensify my workout
my time frames and my eating habits? I know that bread and I don't get along too well, so I have been cutting out, eating very limited carbs in the forms of croutons on my salad, I am eating more veggies, fruits, proteins, and paying attention to the foods my body use and the reactions. I am drinking lots of water....
. one of them days where I wonder why some people lose so easily and some like me find it so hard. My sister eats but she is naturally thin, my brother eats he wants to bust 200 lbs but he can't so its me the middle child who has always carried extra weight and yet it seems like I have the hardest time losing weight and staying slim when I do, I don't want to yo yo
I know some doctors say that it has to deal with things from life that have caused us pain and we use food as a comfort zone. I don't want food to be my comfort zone anymore. I know that life hasn't always been easy and that I sometimes hold back instead of pointing out whats going on inside of me. I just want to succeed this time and continue here on spark for maintenance and help others who are going through the same things....

I really didn't know how to title this blog, but I just needed to vent today so here goes......I really don't understand why people feel the need to make a comment on others decisions to make a change. Yesterday before I went to work a co-worker had another co-worker call me to ask if I could pick her up a salad when I buy me one, I told them yes. Well when I got to work the co-worker at work asked me if I eat salads everyday. I told her yes. She looked at me and continued to comment stating that she can't eat salads because her body doesn't digest them properly, something about making her gassy. Then another co-worker chimed in asking if there is meat on the salad, I told her no. She commented that she can't eat the salads because they have to have meat, cheese, croutons and all kinds of other stuff. My thing is that its my body, my choice, and sometimes other peoples 2cents aren't welcome. One asks are you on a diet, I said No, I am just living a healthier lifestyle....so they make comments like "Oh"looking as though a healthy lifestyle was a joke. I don't like being the highlight of attention but it was either you support or you don't preferrably if you don't then you keep your comments to self, because sometimes when people need support, they don't need your negative comments or your . I sometimes have to remind myself why I am doing this and not worry about what others say. Everyone is not going to support my healthier living, lifestyle and they may think its just a phase but its not, Its me, myself and I. I like this, I want this and I plan on making my change and goal.........

I ran and walked 2 miles within 28 minutes. I need to improve on the time but its okay because I am getting back into my running mode. When I finished that I got onto the elliptical machine. I noticed that my knee started hurting some, but I know when that happens I may need more water. So I drank some water and kept on moving. I felt really good after my workout. I am going to reach my goal and I am goin to make it!!!

I want to lose weight, I am going to lose weighg, I am losing weight but I know that it takes hard work, dedication and strength to get through. I know that this weight issue is not gong to be changed over night and sometimes thats a hard realization, but I have to know that my strength will keep my motivated. I want to reach my goals and I am going to. I am in a catch 22 situation. I want to put a time frame on my limits but I know that at the same time I don't want to lose focus because I didn't make a weight loss goal by the number I want to accomplish my goals and not lose focus.

I was in the gym and I was working out, I was feeling good because I was getting further than I have been getting and that's important to me and I know that change doesn't happen over night, but I am getting to a point where change is going to need to come more often to prevent a plateau. I had a moment where within that good feeling , my mind went to that feeling of chastising. My mind wants to know why did I get to this point and why its taking so long. However we all know easier to gain than to lose. I really want to accomplish my goals and make some progress. I know that weight loss is hard, it takes dedication, commitment and planning. I know that staying motivated will help me to make better changes than those of negative thoughts. However I also know that some days this is easier said than done. This week, I plan to wake up every morning with a plan and I need to take my moments and self motivate myself, I have been planning every day to eat right, my days to cheat once a week yet I want to change this to be a meal where I can have what I want to have and not go overboard, but to throw my body off of the normal plan and yet still see results. I only want to cheat one breakfast one day a week and a lunch one day a week. Not dinner because its too late in the day and I want lighter meals at the end of the day and to keep working on me. I want to add self motivation in. I plan on creating my motivation poster this week. Take a moment to reflect on it etch day and also stay motivated on my progress. For every negative thought put it into a box but then put up two positive stickies to tune that out......... Maybe one day go back and see the negatives I don't know if I want them present or not, but I know that sometimes turning them back into a positive will make things better. I have to do this for me, I know that you are doing this for you.......working together and
