Slowly getting back on track!

Tuesday, October 02, 2012

I knew going into my WW meeting this morning that the scale wasn't going to be my friend. Last week was stressful and emotional so I turned to food for comfort. emoticon

Sure enough, I gained back 3.6 pounds emoticon

This week is all about emoticon those pounds to the curb by emoticon on my emoticon eating lots of emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon and making sure I emoticon lots of water!

Last week was just a bump on the road to my goals. This week is another chance to get it right! I can do this...I know I can. It's going to take time & patience but I'm worth it! emoticon

Tomorrow is the day I attend my WW meeting and get weighed in. I'm a little nervous because I know my eating this week has been erratic. I just wasn't hungry so I skipped a few meals. Probably not the smartest decision I've made but I can't change that now. I can only focus on this week and do better! The best way to start a new week is with a healthy dose of MOTIVATION!!!!!!

M-make short term goals
O-out with the negative thoughts
T-think of why you want it
I-imagine how you will feel
V-visualize the future you
A-acknowledge your successes
T-treat yourself with respect
I-investigate new ideas and foods
O-observe your healthy lifestyle
N-never give up and never give in

    Skipped meals? oh no! Good luck with your weigh-in. Have you tried having smaller meals throughout the day to make sure you get enough food in your daily routine?

Never Give Up!

Monday, September 17, 2012

I often find quotes and poems on the internet that motivate me to continue my weight loss journey. I hope this poem motivates you to keep going on your journey. emoticon emoticon

set your standards high
you deserve the best
try hard
and never settle for less
never give up
no matter what you do
always have a winning attitude
then you'll never lose
think about what you want and want to become
don't worry if you stray
because the most important thing
is what you've learned along the way
now take all that you've become
to be all that you can be
soar above the clouds
and let your dreams set you free

Doing something positive for myself!

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

So yesterday I decided I needed to do something positive and healthy for myself so I joined weight watchers and attended my first meeting! Yeah me! For the first time in years I really feel like I am well on my way to achieving my goals to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle!

“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” ~Mark Victor Hansen

My heart is heavy with the passing of my Mother. Last Thursday was one of the hardest days of my life. I have never seen anyone die. My sister, my husband and I were with my Mom when she passed. I don't think she wanted to leave us. She fought to the end. Thank you to everyone who left words of comfort and support on my last blog. It's nice to know there are people who think of you during difficult times:-)

In the days since I lost my mom I've struggled with my food. A part of me thought if I ate whatever I wanted and as much as I wanted I would feel comforted. What was I thinking! I realized today that no matter how much I eat, it won't fill the emptiness my mom's passing left behind. Now I have 6 more pounds to lose..sigh. So today I am getting myself back on track. Today I am concentrating on healthy meals and eating fruit and veggies as snacks. I know I can reach my goals and eating right is the first step on my journey to a healthier me!

    I am so sorry for your loss. It is always a hard time whenever we lose someone that we love. I probably would have done the same as you in your situation. Stay strong for you, I am sure that is the way your mother would have wanted you to be. Eating vegetables and fruits is great but as far as the stress that I'm sure you have, try a little more exercising when you feel sad. Sometimes it even helps to take a walk or to call a friend/family member to talk to. Grief is horrible, give yourself the time to grieve and be nice to you. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. emoticon

    aawwww baby girl sis, sorry your mom passed.
My parents passed.
I feel your pain, I was at work when I read your post and then went back and read the prior one and water filled up my eyes.

Please know that we are here with you emoticon and you are NOT alone.

emoticon emoticon emoticon you're right food can't fill the holes in our heart... do find ways to be gentle with yourself while you grieve... time to cry, time to just be... and seek foods that nourish you both physically and emotionally... chamomile tea perhaps in the evenings... a warm cup of veggie soup for snack or dinner, that will feel soothing and filling...
