50 lbs down but I'm scared!

Sunday, December 09, 2012

I have never lost this much weight before and I'm scared! Scared that I will gain it back! I've lost 10, 15, 20 lbs before and gained it back plus some! SMH!

Granted I have been sick the last 2 weeks but to finally reach 50 lbs! I'm happy but cautious and scared. I will be watching everything I put in my mouth this week. Since I am feeling better, I can get my butt back in gear with my 2000+ calorie burn goals too. I'm going to start out slowly as I regain my strength. Probably do chair exercises today as well as walk the dog. Then add on a little more tomorrow.

I've got to do this! Got to stay focused! I talk to myself all the time too!

Sometimes you have to encourage yourself. Anyway, pray for me that I don't slip this week.

Love of all my sparkfriends! My life has really changed since joining!

Have a Blessed Day!

    Great job that is a true goal 50. I to will be where you are at some point. Don't be scared everyone is here to cheer you along and stand beside of you.
Just keep doing what you are doing, it's working.
My strongest advice would be to remain active on the site. Being able to see other's success will make you stay aware of your success.

    Hi friend!! Wow 50 pounds...that is so great! Sorry to hear you are sick...that's never fun, I hope you get better soon. I have to say that it is not a bad thing that you are paying close attention to the things that go into your mouth...in this stage of the journey I think it is prudent and quite necessary. The way I see it is that nobody loses weight just living life...you either stay the same OR GAIN...but to lose weight it requires sacrifice and adjustments. I also don't think it's a bad thing to have a little fear....not a crazy paranoid kinda fear but a healthy fear that keeps you on your toes so that you are constantly aware th at you don't want to go back to the place you were before. I have that fear...and I'll keep it as long as it keeps me checking myself!! Feel better soon!! :) Clarissa

    You may want to check out the maintenance team "at goal and maintaining + transition to maintenance" and see all the success stories, that may help with the fear, many Sparkers have successfully lost and kept off the weight for short and long periods of time. This would allow you to still stay on track to your goal, and start to see what you want to do once you get there.

Congrats on losing 50 lbs! emoticon

    Congratulations on losing 50 pounds !

Here's something I've learned from my own years of yo yo dieting, "don't be afraid to embrace success!" We're so used to regaining the weight, that failure has become something of a comfort zone to us. We know what's it's like to fail. We've done it thousands of times. Succeeding ? That's a whole new ballgame. kinda scary too. What do we do when we succeed ?

Enjoy it !!

You've made fantastic progress. Don't be afraid to embrace your success. Go out and treat yourself to some new clothes that flatter your new figure. Look forward, don't look back.

    Congrats on a huge weight loss! You've developed lifestyle changes in food, exercise, whatever that enables you to lose that much. You've done the yo-yo thing before so I'm sure you've looked at the pitfalls from before as well. You've learned from past experiences and know how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Just keep doing what you did to get to this point. Glad you're feeling better and I like your burn goal. I had what was going around a month ago and I had to ease back into it as well. You'll get it back!

What? I'm worried about breaking my fitness streak!

Thursday, November 29, 2012

I've been sick this week and all I can think about is not breaking my fitness streak!
That's a first!!
Usually, I just crawl up in the bed and say the #@## with it. My mindset must be changing.

I always seem to get sick when I start making progress. Or maybe its that I always start making progress when the seasons change! Hum!

Anyway, I have to take my dog out for a walk and that keeps me moving. Since I'm running a fever, I better bundle up and muster up the energy!

So as not to break my fitness streak, I will be doing the bare minimum until I feel better.

Have a blessed day!!

Helping a friend, helped me meet my goal.

Saturday, November 24, 2012

Whew! Glad Thanksgiving is over and the leftovers are just about gone! I almost didn't make my goal this week of 2000 calories burned. My foot, knees, and ankles were bothering me all week.

Despite the pain, I help a friend of mine move into her 2nd floor apartment. Up and down the stairs! Up and down the stairs! Carrying boxes, bags, and other things. For 2 days!! But in the end, I met my goal and had fun! We laughed and talked our way through it until we were done.

I took off today and just walked the dog. Rested my feet, knees and ankles! Feel much better. Gotta get rested up for next week's challenge.

I hope everyone had a safe, happy, not too far off plan, Thanksgiving. If you did go off plan, I'm looking for you to be back on plan with me tomorrow!! Gear up for next week!

Yeah! 2 lbs down! Whew!

Sunday, November 18, 2012

I worked for it last week. Next weeks goal will be the same, 2000+ calorie burn. Its going to be a busy week. Shopping, cooking, cleaning, the usual holiday chores! Going over family house for dinner. But I've got to stay in control all of my favorite foods will be there.

I will probably drink or eat something before going to dinner. That way I won't get too hungry.

Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! emoticon emoticon

    Great advice! I'm taking some healthy food in my bag in case there is not that's lathered in fat and high sugar.

Good luck this week!

Exceeded 2000 calorie burn for the week!

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Yes, I made it!

My goal this week was to burn 2000 calories! I'm following the Simple Diet and they suggest a goal of 2000 calories burned for the week. After doing some figuring, I found that I was not burning enough calories. It really wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. I added a couple cardio workout videos from Tiffany Rothe and continued to walk 2x a day. That's what got me to my goal.

I went over because I helped my Mom move some boxes, up stairs for 3 hours on Saturday. That was the icing on the cake. When I did get home, I passed out on the bed and stayed there. LOL, I'm worn out now. Tomorrow, I need to go grocery shopping and walk 2x and that will be it for the day!

Next weeks goal will be the same - 2000 calories burned! No slack for me just because of the holiday! I'll be working out on Thanksgiving Day, too!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
