WooHoo for me!

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

I'm down 3.5 pounds this week. emoticon

AND I'm finally past my quarter way mark on my ticker!!! emoticon
That makes me feel good.

So this week I'll be working harder at journaling and tracking my foods. I still need to get my exercise in. I need some incentive for that..... Gotta think of something good....

How Did This Happen?

Wednesday, July 01, 2009

I gained back 3 pounds this week. How Did this happen??? hmmm....let me think.....

Well first thing, I didn't journal emoticon

Then, I didn't exercise. Nope not one bit emoticonThat's a give in tho, I never exercise

Then I didn't watch my calorie intake.

I did watch my food intake. I watched myself eat ice cream emoticonand coffee cake emoticonand pound cake emoticon

I didn't keep track of my water either emoticon but I think I had at least 8 glasses a day....or did I?

So looking over all this, it's no wonder I gained back 3 pounds.

I need to readjust my thinking and planning. I need to set myself on the right track and tackle this one at a time. That's my goal for today.

Pictures

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

I hate taking pictures of myself. That way I have to face the truth and I don't always like what I see. But I finally decided that in order to reach my final goal it might be a good idea to see what I"m leaving behind. That way I'll have my visual to remind me that I really don't want to be there.

So I posted a current picture of myself as a starting point. I'm only 5.5 pounds down from my restart, but at least now I have my visual.

    I think that's a wonderful idea! That's why I have a recent photo of myself at the top of my spark page. And sadly, it's a year old now and I'm still at the same weight when that was taken! Well, I had lost some, gained it and more back and am now back DOWN to where that pic was taken.

We can do this, Renee!! We WILL do this!!!!

Jabba

Saturday, January 24, 2009

I've had a few messages from friends voicing their concerns over my Jabba picture. I know you're looking out for my well being and I appreciate that immensely but I feel I should explain why I chose the picture to put everyone at ease.

Some people put motivational pictures of celebs or others they know who have accomplished their goals as something to work toward. I do have a couple of those to keep me focused on my ultimate goal, but....

I decided to put the Jabba picture up because I looked in the mirror one day and that's what I saw. Seriously. It's more of a reverse psychology thing for me. I want it there to remind me that I should not be looking like that and to make a move to change it.

I also thought that if I hide my weight that I could keep it as my own little secret, but I don't want to do that anymore. I do have a problem with losing weight and working on my weight loss is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I make mistakes with it all the time but at the same time I"m learning how to deal with it. It's up to me to make those changes, no on else can do it for me.

I was so elated when my scale went to 242. I had to get on it 4 times to see if it was wrong. It kept going to the same weight so ok, I left it there. This week it went back up. No biggie, I know where I stand.

Exercise is still very hard for me to do. I started the Bootcamp videos but seemed to have put those in the background too. At least for the past couple of weeks. I felt so much better when I did them, I need to do them again. Not want, NEED! My body needs movement. And it makes me feel better emotionally and physically.

I NEED THAT!

And that is what helps me take the weight off. I need to have my time to get my exercise done. This is what I"ll be working on. A regular time each day for me.

So Jabba is my reminder of what I need to do. Jabba is my visual and I'm ok with that.

    I think it was brave of you to really look in the mirror and gutsy to use Jabba as a motivator. To use an old, probably worn out phrase -- I can relate. And I applaud your capacity for openness here. I have yet to even post a current photo (although I do look in the mirror and really see me). It may take my losing some weight so I can then post a "before" pic, not a current one. Jabbba suffices for me ... in the meantime.
