I am up and down as far as my weight goes. I realized I need to eat healthy all of the time and not just when things are going well. It really makes a big difference when I am stressed if I exercise and eat better. I got sick and hurt . Fell of the bandwagon and am back at it again. I always find myself coming back to Spark People because of all of the great resources and motivation.
I am also back to participating in the 100 days of weight-loss book discussion. I find it really helpful to know that I am not alone in my struggles.
I debated on blogging because I don't really have anything new to say other than I am back on my journey to becoming a stronger, healthier person inside and outside.
I am really enjoying the weight loss book discussion in the emotional eaters support group. Peoples answers are helping me think about things differently. In other words I get to see stuff from other people's perspective. I am learning to think about what I am eating and how it will affect my overall health. If anyone would like to join the group we would love to have you. Also, the author Linda Spangle is stopping in to check on us periodically which I find really impressive.
I was getting a head cold and feeling under the weather and not able to exercise like I would like but I felt better today and got right back on the bandwagon.
I am starting to get the big picture and having a lot more aha moments and loving that.
I want to encourage everyone to keep going on their journey no matter how difficult it may be because there is a rainbow at the end of every storm. Thank you all so much for your continued support.
I will participate in my SparkPeople groups more.
I will exercise every day for at least 15 minutes.
I will record what I eat every day.
I will finish my 100 days of weightloss challenge.
I will work up to 30 minutes of exercise a day.
I will make time to reward and pamper myself with stuff other than food. For example, get a haircut or a mani-pedi.
I will be more diligent in sticking with my exercise plan.
I will remind myself that even if I don't lose weight that week at least I have not gained any.
I will stop yo-yo dieting.
I will say one positive thing to myself a day.
I will look in the mirror and say you are worth it each morning.
I will be mindful of what I am putting in my mouth.
I will increase my fruit and veggie intake.
I will buy more fruits and veggies that I like to eat.
I will celebrate my accomplishments, no matter how small they may seem.
I will eat more lean proteins and complex carbs.
I will be the role model my son needs for healthy living.
I will lose inches from my belly so that it does not stick out past my bust.
I will continue on this path to wellness.
I will be committed to a healthy lifestyle and not just interested.
I will find extracurricular activities that interest me instead of eating out of boredom.
I will journal or talk out my feelings instead of eating out of frustration.
I am still walking but have not been going on as many long walks and I can tell. I feel winded going up stairs and I think I might have actually gained more weight (I don't like to get on the scale). I am nervous about the holidays. I am afraid I will over eat. I tend to do this when I am around family and friends. I am working on eating out less. Portion control continues to be an issue with me (I usually want seconds). I hope everyone is doing well on their journeys to lose weight and be a healthier person. I want to thank everyone for their continued support.
I am doing better and my hormones are more under control now. I am wanting to get back to walking again which is a good sign. I am still tired a lot but know this will go away once I start walking and losing again. My goal is to walk a mile for at least 27 days out of the month. Here in Mid-MO I have been hearing commercials of how you can do this in October and it will go to benefit MU Childrens Hospital. It's called the miracle mile marathon and I heard it on Y107. Here is the link if anyone else wants to participate. www.miraclemarathon.org/ Hope everyone is doing okay and making progress!
