I will succeed!

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

So today I weighed myself and I am 185lbs. One month ago I was 177lbs. Three months ago I was 193lbs. I know where I "slipped up" this time, I quit walking when the weather got too cold. I am an outside walker, no treadmill for me. Recently I've invested in good long johns and ear muffs so I am back out there. I do notice excuses starting to appear that weren't there in the beginning. I've got to meet them head on and not let them win! I will overcome these excuses!!! I have a full 7 months until my 40th birthday and I will weigh 140lbs by that day. Yesterday I received my last Christmas present for 2010, The Spark, and I can't put it down. It started motivating me from the second page of the introduction!!


I don't want to loose steam

I am starting to feel discouraged. I have been walking since the 2nd week in August. I started out walking 4 days a week for the first 3 weeks then I died down to 3 days a week for about the next 2 - 3 weeks. Presently I have been walking 5 days a week and have just added a second (morning) walk to my schedule. Morning walks are about 20 min (mixed with jogging) and my evening walks are 30-40 min. I have not lost one pound. Ugh. I am not going to give up because I know I can do this but I am getting discouraged. We have quit eating out as we used to do this entirely to much. I have stopped buying processed foods (my husband is occasionally bringing them home). The holidays are coming up and I'd like to see just a little progress to get me through with my head held high!

I just keep telling myself "You can do this!!!"

Hopefully I will start to believe it.
