Day #2 - 2011

Sunday, January 02, 2011

Well, today is day #2 of my renewed weight loss journey. I lost 2.4 lbs. in 1 day! Of course this is not going to be a typical, daily weight loss for me, but this always happens on day 1. From here on out, it is going to be a slow process.

Happy New Year to all of you!

Saturday, January 01, 2011

It is a new year with new goals!


Failure is caused by negative thoughts!

Friday, September 24, 2010

Your personal goals should be based on how your body responds to a healthy diet and exercise. I feel like I was beat down by a couple of people because I set my goal to lose ABOUT Ĺ lb per day. Maybe their body canít lose that much per week but my body can! My exercise regimen consists of walking 8 miles per day. What does their regimen consist of?

In the last week or so, I put myself on a maintenance plan, no exercising but still watching how much I ate, so that I can try to maintain my current weight. I HAVE SUCCEEDED!!! I did not gain, I maintained! I have dieted before where I would lose the weight and slowly start gaining it all back. This time it is different! My weight loss is for life NOT for the moment.

Starting next week, I plan on walking 8 miles per day again. I WILL make this happen. In the next 2 months, I will be really close to my goal, if I have not actually met it. There will be no starvation, only healthy eating consisting of reduced portions and lots of exercise!

Donít let anyone try to get you down! As for me, I am too strong to give in to negative thoughts. For those of you that have had this happen to you, keep your head up and move forward, don't look back!

    You go girl!

I think when others see you doing so well, they don't like it for some reason. I just don't get that.

One song I love to workout to is "Ain't No Stoppin Us Now". I don't know who sings it but it's on one of my mixed artist CD's. Gets me motivated and determined not to let anyone stand in my way.

    No truer words have ever been spoken. I have been telling anyone who will listen that the battle lies in your mind. I completely agree with you. We are the only ones who can stop us!

Great blog.

A Positive Outlook

Thursday, September 16, 2010

As this week drawers nearer to a close, I realize that I have only lost a week. Yes, it can be very devastating but I am not giving up. Not only have I been in control of my actions all week to recover from what some would call a devastation, I am only .6 lbs away from what I weighed last week.

I am going to set a new short-term goal for myself right now so that I can create the same enthusiasm that I had 2 weeks ago. By Saturday, September 25th, my goal is to weigh 148 lbs.

I am in Control!!

Monday, September 13, 2010

I just celebrated my 38th birthday on Saturday in a BIG way... with food! My family took me to the Olive Garden. It is one of my favorite places to dine. It wasn't like I gave into temptation and couldn't hold back... there was no guilt and I was in control! Although, I ate until I was so stuffed that I couldn't eat anymore. Then I realized that what I ate was only one of my regular meals that I used to eat when I weighed almost 30 lbs more. I do not feel so bad after this weekend... it was good!! Yesterday morning, I weighed myself with fear. As I looked at the scale, I only gained a total of 4 lbs. I knew that if I watched what I ate yesterday, I would lose a great deal of weight. The over-indulgence thing was just not me anymore and my body cannot eat as much anymore! So anyway, this morning I weighed myself and cheered because I lost 1.4 lbs. so now I am only up 2.6 lbs. I know I have set myself back probably a good week, but I have no intentions of giving up!

Today I am going to walk a full 8 miles. With so much going on in the past week, I have fallen behind on my fitness minutes and distance, but I am going to step up and make it happen!

    Good for you for just getting right back at it and not worrying about the weight gain. If you have mastered handling weight gains, you can do anything! I think weight gains during the process of losing weight make most of us give up. But your positive attitude just shows that weight gains are going to happen and we will have times that we just plain eat too much.
And by the way, 30 lbs. is awesome!

  Good for you and Happy Birthday! I love the Olive Garden too, but my hubby doesn't and I don't think that's a bad thing! FYI great ravioli at SaltGrass!

    Ugh, I went to Olive Garden this weekend too, couldn't even finish a plate of their "never ending pasta bowl" - I'm so not a pasta girl. Anyways, back to the blog....Congrats on your birthday!! I'm glad you have a plan to get back on track. For me, being in control means never having that overstuffed feeling to have to recover from. It's good to hear that you knew what you were doing and have a plan!! emoticon
