    Tara I always love reading your goals, with the pictures. I know for me I had a weekly relationship with the scale (and I used to have a daily one), but when I cut back to every other week or monthly, I felt a bit better about things and focused more on other things than the number on the scale. Have a great day!

I'm calling myself out! I need help!!

Thursday, March 29, 2012

I am frustrated!! With whom or what you ask?? With MYSELF! Why you ask? Because every time I start doing really good and am losing the weight and feeling good about myself and how I feel, I go and screw it up! I start allowing myself to eat alittle more and then skip an exercise. Then BAM gained 3-5lbs back and its crazy!!! Why am I doing this?? I want so badly to be healthy and look good! To feel good! To lose this weight and be around for my kids and hubby for a long time! To be able to go shopping and NOT by plus size clothes! This is driving me crazy!!! Here lately I've been finding myself getting REALLY moody, really tired.. and aggravated. & I know its my fault!! I am the one causing all of this! I have got to find some way to STOP doing this to myself. And well I figure this might help... calling myself out! The SAD thing is I know I can do better. I have all the tools right here in front of me. So again I ask why am I sabotaging myself?? What is my deal. I don't know.

I finally got back to the size I have been for years and its the lowest weight I have been for years... NOT that its a good weight... by far... I m in 24's and that's what I was in when I was in my early 20's, when I met my hubby & when we got married. Yup its sad but its true that's the lowest weight I have ever been. (290-295lbs) So for the first time in about 7 years I am down to that again. I know I should be happy that I have lost like 92lbs over all.. since my highest weight.. and I am but I want and need to lose so much more. Its like my body says "hey were back to the weight we was for years and years... I m good with that"... Yeah WELL I M NOT!!!!!! okay so as I am writing this I am having a moment.. an Aha moment I guess... um I guess that's just it! I am at war with the Overweight person I have always been! I guess we just have to see who is Stronger ME or my Overweight self!!

Okay so I guess what I need is a battle plan! So to speak.. how do I get threw to the ME that's trying to come out. And tell the Overweight me to back the heck off!! The over weight me has ran my life for so long.. 33 years now.... its MY turn!!!!!!!!!!

Ahh this is crazy but this is just what I needed... I needed to be able to get this out I guess to figure it out. Now to figure out how to go about this!

Any suggestions any advise is welcomed!! I have to get past this!
So I ask you if you went threw this.. what did you do to get past this????

    Continue fighting my friend! Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and go right back in. That "enemy" that always seems to derail the journey is in all of us. It's the part of us that likes things to stay just the way they are even if that means being fat and unhappy. I know I have faced that part of me many times and will do so again. Losing weight is a battle. It's an uphill climb. It's a fight every day. The key is NOT to let the other side win. Get back at it as soon as you can. Eventually you will wear the "enemy" down. Failure is in NOT trying. So as long as you keep at it, a long as you keep getting back in the fight, you are winning slowly but surely. emoticon I can do this! We all can do this! Each of us is stronger than we know. So don't give up, WIN this war!

    I would suggest maybe changing things up. Try a new work out, or even one that you weren't able to do 50lbs ago. If you have a webcam or can take video's of yourself on your cell phone, sit down and have a heart to heart with yourself, you don't have to post it. Tell about those reasons you may not share with anyone, about why you want to do this. Tell about that big reward you have planned for the day you reach your goal weight. Remind yourself that you can get through this. Add anything else you think will help. Then save it and put it somewhere you will be able to view it anywhere you might need too. Watching it might actually help you work on through it. And remember you can and will slip up, it happens your human, what you need to remember is that just because you slip up doesn't mean you can't pick yourself up and start again. I really hope this helps. You CAN do this, you ARE doing this. emoticon

    I think a lot of us have similar issues. I think this is pretty much what I've been going through since Christmas... I finally hit the 50 pound mark and started allowing a little bit of this or that... and before I knew it I was undoing my progress. I'm still struggling to get it all together... but I figure as long as I'm still trying then all isn't lost. Hang in there! You can do this! emoticon

    Ok my advise is to recognize that anytime, ANYTIME, we start making progress and being happy, we get blind sided by the "enemy" who doesn't like us being happy. I used to hear this and think "oh that's nuts!" but the more I look at it, the more I see the truth in it. I used to think I suffered from devastation thinking. I just knew that when something was going right, the world was going to fall out from under me. I used to just accept it was going to happen. Now I know I can fight it!!! I can fight back and I can keep my happiness and I can keep my progress. If you know you are going to walk in a hole if you keep walking straight, do you keep walking straight or do you move a little to the right? If we prepare for a "letdown", we can avoid it entirely.

I struggled with progress for 9 months. I just sat there, complacent. Losing and gaining the same 5 pounds, until I stopped the cycle and ended up gaining 12 before I realized "I can do better than this!!!"
Slowly I have been making the changes to be healthy. I got back to tracking. I made a huge leap and stopped eating the chip basket at the Mexican place (I am in Texas, you know you can't throw a rock with out hitting a Mexican restaurant and it landing in a chip basket. Not eating it is like a miracle or something). Yesterday I turned down a friend for lunch just because I didn't trust myself at the restaurant she chose, Red Robin. I foresaw the guilty feeling I would have after I consumed a basket of steak fries with ranch, 900 calories and you get free refills!!!! I saw the letdown and I stopped it before it started; it just wasn't worth it. We have to be prepared for our successes and we have to guard them like a soldier against the one who is trying to take them from us.

Build up you artillery and fight back! Fight for your health. Know ahead of time that any time you make progress, something will happen and you will have a choice to make, do you keep making progress or do you give in?


You can win this war!

    I had the same problem when I lost weight a couple of years ago. I lost 20 pounds and thought, "Hey, that's awesome! I lost 20 pounds! I can stay here for a while." It didn't matter to my inner voice that I was still 180. And I'm 5'4" so that's still obese. I lost 20 pounds! Nothing changed until I finally let myself believe that I DESERVE to be thin and healthy and that is at a healthy weight so my goal is 145. You CAN do this and you DESERVE it. Now you just have to believe it.

    Maybe it's just the idea of the unknown, if you have never been the weight you're aiming for there are a lot of things that you may feel uncomfortable about. I know of a few people who worried about the attention they would draw to themselves by being slimmer. Why don't you try to visualise what it would be like being the slimmer you and deal with the discomforts before you get there, maybe your unconscious mind would be happier about heading in that direction then. I know you'll work this out but good luck anyway :-)

    Tara I have no words of wisdom. I don't know why I am having a much easier time this time, I just know that I am. My coping mechanism for when I have a craving to eat more than my 3 meals is to have a glass of water or some hot tea, to chew sugarless gum, or it I am absolutely not able to say no to myself, I have 100 calories of popcorn. I don't eat snacks and I don't keep food out.
Have you considered when you have a craving making yourself take a walk first? If you still crave whatever, then you are allowed to eat it?
I don't know that this is helpful. I hope things get better for you. How about if you drown anything you shouldn't eat in water before you eat it? If it still tempts you then go ahead and eat it. I bet you will throw it out.

    Tara Congratulations on losing the 92 pounds! You have come a long way.

There is a technique I learned in a class many many years ago to use when needing to find input from your creative side. Get an old notebook and write about your question (in this case why are you sabatoging weight loss?) with your unaccostom hand (this means if you are right handed write with your left hand, if you are left hand write with your right hand). Don't try to follow the lines or write neat. Just write down whatever pops into your head. Then later you can analyze it. It takes self honesty and the ability to accept yourself as you are while at the same time accepting that it doesn't have to be permanent. When you know what it is you are fighting then you can heal it, reasure it, help it to become part of what you want.

    I agree with these awesome posts. Have you thought of hiding your scale? Maybe only weighing yourself every 2 weeks? Maybe keeping yourself from knowing how much weight you are losing would be good for you- no self-sabotage?

Seek counseling and find out the core to your issues. Try a new exercise routine. Get out of your comfort zone.

You have come so far and your body wants to do this. You can do this! You want to do this!

    I am going throught this right now! It is really hard to stick with it ALL the time, but the most important thing is to be able to rebound. I am in FULL rebound mode today. You will have days when you just get tired of tracking, working out and all the healthy weight loss stratergies that you should do- trust me I have spent my week like this. But then you just have to snap back- start small if you have too. go back to tracking or working out and build yourself back up. Most of all believe that you can do it and then MAKE it happen emoticon

    Hi Tara. I agree with Lynn. There's likely some emotional stuff going on that keeps you engaging in unhealthy but "safe" behaviors. Change is big and scary. What about this particular change has you scared? A common one is fear of rejection. Another is fear of disappointment.

If you don't feel comfortable thinking about those kinds of questions, there are folks who can help you figure it out: an understanding trainer, a weight loss group like weight watchers, a counselor or psychologist.

If nothing else, keep blogging. Every time you look inside yourself and ask those very good questions, you're making progress. You're not alone.

    I think you already answered your question and hit the nail on the head.... you are sabotaging yourself. for whatever reason, it is a behavior. And you can always change behavior. When i lost the 170# the first time, I remember a very painful time in there when people started noticing me, and I was noticing positive changes in my body. It scared the crap out of me! I had hid behind my weight all my life. And while I desperately wanted to NOT do that, I didn't know how. I was scared of it. You just need to find out what you are running from or frightened of. You are too smart and wonderful to be the only one standing in your way. What did I do? A lot of self-therapy. When I was giving myself permission to eat junk, I asked WHY. What I seeking a comfort? Was I trying to eat an emotion? What emotion? Was I getting uncomfortable with the changes I was seeing? YOU CAN DO THIS!!!!!!! Do you have therapy coverage? Or a church pastor you could talk with for cheap? A good friend who will let you talk it out? I think it would be really helpful. Otherwise, I'm here. emoticon

    Ok...not an expert by any means, but my old trainer told me once, if you start backsliding, go back to the very beginning. What did you do when you first started?

For me it was her rule to get a notebook, each page is a new day. Fold the page in half (longways). The left side was to right EVERYTHING down that I ate...even 1 lonely M&M...and the right side was any exercise I did...ALL of it! Even if I walked from building to building (at my job site).

There is something about seeing it in writing that you created, holding yourself accountable.

Good luck and congrats on the success you've had so far.

    My suggestions would be to revisit your short and long term goals. Look back at how far you've come. Realize that your goals are possible. Understand that you have to eat clean and workout to get to your goals. It might be a good idea to change up your eating and workouts. Get excited about doing this. If it's seen as a chore, then you are going to resist. Ultimately, do the best you can. You aren't perfect. Forgive your mistakes and move on to the next day.

Best of luck!

A Blessing in Disguise

Monday, March 19, 2012

It's the funniest thing but it just dawned on me... all this time I have been alittle frustrated about things but I just realized what I have been frustrated about is a Blessing in disguise. Okay when I say I have been frustrated about things well I have been about several things.. as many of you I have been about losing weight, about trying to figure out what to eat, what works for me and how to balance it all out. ( How much to eat, what to eat, how much to work out, what kinds of workouts... Ect) But the one I am speaking about right now is finances... work has been slow so with that comes no extra money to do things... can't go out of town and see my family and such... and all tho I do miss them I just realized in some ways it is a blessing! Okay I know right about now your going.. HOW is that a blessing NOT seeing your family... well let me explain... to me how this comes out as a blessing is at this point in my life and life style change I m still getting the hang of things with eating and working out and when I go to see the family I tend to eat well any and everything... one because I don't want them to make a fuss over me, (making foods they wouldn't normally eat... And normally I would just say lets go out to eat so I could choose whats better for me and they still get what they want... BUT with no extra money you can't really do that. Also I don't ever seem to drink like I should one because its an almost 3 hour drive and I HATE HATE HATE Public bathrooms... I would rather go in the woods.. I hate them so much!! lol And like most of you when I drink like I should I pee all day long. Then there's the matter of exercise.. I do my best to stay active while there but tend to go with the flow of things and normally we just hang out and talk... not really burning any calories lol anyways so you see I get derailed and with still getting the hang of things its still hard to get derailed and get back on track so to speak. So Today I realized that it is just that a Blessing in Disguise!!

Now I don't mean to say that my family's not important enough or anything... I am just saying I am looking at the positive side to this... because with my finances being the way they are right now I couldn't go see them even if I wanted too. & I do But, well you get the picture right?
Also there is more to the story but I am leaving it out because I m not trying to complain about my life or my finances. I am TRULY BLESSED, I have 2 wonderful, amazing little girls and an Amazing Loving Husband. A wonderful family. We are all healthy. We have A house to live in, clothes on our backs, My bills are getting paid and we have everything we need. And so much more. I feel VERY BLESSED and I am VERY THANKFUL!! God truly has been good to us!! And I THANK GOD Everyday!

As I always say.. Things Could Always be worse!! Be happy about what you do have!!! Don't always go looking at what you don't have!

Thanks for reading! I wish you all a Blessed Day/ Week/Month ect! emoticon

    I completely understand! My family like to turn up unannounced and expect us to stop what we're doing!They will also stay until around 10pm. A bit different I know but we lost countless evenings working on the house because of this. I have decided if I have a workout scheduled after the baby and this happens I'll just apologise and go out for my run anyway or eat my dinner in front of them. (I've waited 6 hours before now to eat because I feel rude to continue with my dinner)

Anyway, what I was trying to say is to make the most of your blessing in disguise to find ways you can squeeze a workout/your food choices in to your family's choices. You never know they may enjoy a walk in the evening :-)

    I totally get this. My anxiety goes up when we have out of town stuff because I worry about what I'm going to eat, how/when I'll exercise, etc. At home I'm in control. And until I get a really good hang of everything I want to be in my own comfort zone.

    Totally understand you and I agree when you are socializing with family you don't have as much control over what you do and what is available to eat. I makes for tracking difficulties and is one more thing to add to your already complicated life. The rewards are also great because socializing with family is spiritually uplifting and can make you very happy. But when you are still working on gaining equilibrium it can throw you off. Remember we are on a journey and there is no end just the trip. When you are with family don't sweat the small stuff. It is one day and you can get back to your equilibrium tomorrow.

I can relate. Your family knows you are trying to live a healthy lifestyle but will say "Oh, just a small bite won't hurt you". I know from personal experience. Just take this time of smaller finances to keep on with your activity and your eating plan and just imagine how nicely surprised your family will be when they do see you.

Keep up the good work, Nora

    Sometimes, it's difficult for me to see family because of those reasons, so I can relate. However, maybe next time you go to see them, take a healthy dish with you for them to try. You might want to explain why you brought it, and that you would like to share a part of this journey with them. It's ok to eat other things every now and then, but the key is to limit your portions.

Also, I know you said that you have an issue getting exercise in. Maybe you could suggest that every one go for a walk to get some fresh air. Again, it's a great idea to share why you are on your journey. Who knows, you might change a family member's life!

Having a Good day!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

I m one happy little chick a dee today. Why you ask? Well the scales is moving in the right direction for one!! I've finally making progress with eating less calories... for the longest it was hard.. it seemed I liked food more lol Still could eat less than what I m doing, but as I have found it takes time getting your body use to it. But for now I am happy with staying in between 1500-1600 calories atleast 5 -6 days a week... I do let myself have a cheat day to hit about 2000 calories But only once a week... & I have been doing my best to stay busy all day weather its working out, playing with the kiddos or cleaning house, lawn care, shopping whatever... just busy lol Also I have worked myself up to 12 sometimes 14 glasses of water a day.. also took time to do so but I m there!! Anyways I am finding that IT ALL takes time... not just the weight loss but the steps it takes to get there. NOT that I m saying I am THERE... oh no my friends I have along ways to go BUT I do believe I will be celebrating the over all total of 90lbs gone since Oct of 2010.

emoticon emoticon emoticon

I also just broke down and ordered me some new work out clothes,,, the ones I was using were just getting to baggie! I have been doing my best NOT to buy anything because I have so much to lose and want to spend it all on the cute stuff lol but I figured the workout clothes I need! And yes when the others just won't stay up anymore I will get some more... so don't want to scare the mess out of anyone with this naked body lol

Oh and I did get my blood results back and GET this... even after at that point of having the test done... it had been about 8 months of watching my cholesterol, and everything but some how it all went up buy like 2 points... not that that's horrible I know but I mean REALLY?! So my cholesterol is 216!
I am at a loss for words.. all I can do it keep working on it!

Okay so I've went on long enough all I m gonna say now is Thanks for reading and I WISH YOU all the BEST!!!!!! emoticon

What was the break down for the good cholesterol compared to the bad cholesterol? I had borderline high cholesterol, but it was because my good cholesterol was really high, which pushed my overall cholesterol number up. I did eventually get it back into a healthy range with healthy eating, exercise and some fish oil though.

emoticon track every day.. everything! ......pretty much did.. except for a few times when I would nibble... didn't know how to really track that lol gotta stop nibbling!

emoticondo my best to keep up with and encourage all as much as I possible can!!! NEED to do better!!

Do something for myself ATLEAST once a week!!! ... didn't keep up with this one will try harder this month!

Okay so the same goals apply for this month... need to do better on some and others just need to help make it an every day thing, just away of life which pretty much applies to all of the above. Other than that I have learned that my sodium really does seem to hurt my weight loss efforts. And that keeping to a schedule helps. Also I m not real sure why but I have been having issues with my digestive track.. And my gallbladder so this has been frustrating but I am still in this. I just might need to have those things looked at and possible have the gallbladder Removed!
So that my friends is my March Goals, Feb Goal update and just alittle over all update, all in one lol Thanks for taking the time to read and BEST WISHES TO YOU ALL!! & Remember WE CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!!!

    Sounds like you did a great job! emoticon Gallbladder issues are rough (had mine out almost 11 years ago). A dr appt sounds like a good idea.

    You did really well! I hope you can resolve your gall bladder by some less invasive way. I know you can live without a gall bladder but you really have to be careful with food if it is removed. I have several SIL who had it removed when they were young like you. I agree have a schedule makes everything seem easier. emoticon emoticon emoticon
