Staying positive with ATTITUDE!

Saturday, August 28, 2010

Oh yeah...staying positive. I keep seeing it on SP. I keep hearing about it. I keep telling myself it... over & over & over again. But, it's more than just saying it, hearing it, reading it. It's about ATTITUDE! Well, I've got the ATTITUDE! Yep! I've also gotta TONE to my 'tude! Oh yeah! It's a way of's a way of feeling! It's a way of BEING! If you have the ATTITUDE that you're gonna make matter what!!! Then, by will! So, I affirm today, this very moment in time...that I will reach my goals. That I will reach my goal weight...that I will become a healthier version of me...that I will become fit & trim. And I will do matter what! This is my battle cry!

Catch me if you can! emoticon

    Sounds like a great plan! the way you see yourself and the way you feel about yourself has a very profound impact on the way you'll approach the lifestyle change... not diet but lifestyle change. The nutrition, the exercise, the goals, the friendships will all develop over time but your outlook on the situation has to be positive for the program to work the most efficiently!
You can do this! I know you can!

I am my own cheerleader!! Rah! Rah!

Thursday, August 26, 2010

I know what I have to do to get the weight off! I know what it takes to reach my goals! It takes hard work & determination! It takes dedication & stick- to- it-ness, no matter what! It takes enthusiasm & attitude! It takes persistence & courage! It takes a dauntless tenacity! There will be bad days...ugly days...stressful days. No matter, I will not faulter! I will resist temptation! I will move my body! I will drink my water! I will be my own cheerleader! I will keep me motivated! If something gets in my way, I will maneuver around it...over or under it! I am relentless! I am unyielding! Step aside! I am coming through...!!!

Catch me if you can!! emoticon

Getting honest & willing to listen!

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Well, today makes it day fourteen of my journey, & I'm feeling a bit anxious about weighing in tomorrow. I've been doing everything I've set out to do, up to this point...tracking what I eat & making better choices. I'm drinking 8 glasses of water a day. And today, I walked 1 full hour outdoors w/hubby! We went to the metropark...and enjoyed it immensely! I've been doing a lot of thinking this week, & I've realized that I'm always in "help" mode. I think it's because I'm a nurse...& that's what nurses do! And more so me....'cause I'm a psych nurse! Also, I'm the oldest of 5 children, and I've always been the caretaker. So, arriving here to SP, what do I do?...I immediately put my "caretaker" hat on & started giving advise & wanting to help...even though I'm a newbie myself! Instead of listening & learning from those that have had success in their weight loss efforts....I'm feeling the need to "help" & welcome new people to SP. I want everyone to feel welcome & supported! Well, I'm thinking now I need to take care of me. It's not that I don't care about others...cause I do! But, I need to be quiet, listen, & learn from others that have done what it is I'm trying to do, success & achieve my goals. Oh, I know a lot about weight loss & nutrition, and this isn't the first time I've been down this road. About 12 years ago, I lost 98 lbs in 14 months with weight watchers, and achieved my goal weight. I was invited to become a leader, & was given a weekly group. All was well until the hospital I worked day shift for abruptly closed & I was out of a job. I scrambled & ended up working the nightshift for a local hospital. My world turned upside down & I crumbled ...I never knew when to eat & my schedule become so erratic that I lost my routine of eating & exercise. I was unhappy & quickly went back to my old comfort foods & habits. I stopped exercising. And the weight came piling back on. I eventually gained ALL the weight back. There's been half attempts of regaining my momentum...but I never could recover. Well, the point to all this is that I'm here to take care of me. I want to be respectful & give support to others...but I need to be mindful of the fact that I'm here to LEARN & LISTEN from those that have achieved their goals. I know this journey is a process...and even though I've been down this road before, I need to be quiet & listen. In the quiet, I will be able to hear what others have to say....and I may even learn a thing or two! Imagine that!

    I like that you are thinking you need to find a balance. Sometimes in the helping of others, we find what we need. It sounds like you are trying a new approach and I think thats great too! Welcome by the way! lol, Jan

Gettin' my blog in!

Monday, August 23, 2010

Whew! what a day! This is the very first day I've felt so stressed since joining SP. Worked today. Was VERY busy. Hardly got to eat...just wolfed down a turkey pita w/veggies. It was difficult to even get slugs of water in between patients! B ut, made it. Now, I'm STARVING & need to have dinner soon! I've got a massage scheduled at 6 pm. Gonna let myself rest & relax to unwind. Well, NOT so fast. I've gotta fit in some walking! Something's gotta give! Okay, okay....I'll go walking AFTER my massage. Not the best of circumstances...but, hey. Ya gotta do whatcha gotta do! And I DO have to walk!

End of blog! emoticon
