Manage Your THOUGHTS

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

Positive Thinking, Positive Results. ( Helpful Habits by Weight Watchers)

Your mind can make a big difference. It Helps your efforts when you trade in negative thoughts for positive ones.

Manage Your Thoughts Means:

~ Recognizing negative thoughts when they run through your mind, and understanding how that kind of thinking can harm your efforts.

~Replacing those negative thoughts with positive thoughts. Accept that it takes time to change the habits of a lifetime.

~Reflecting on what you CAN DO, instead of on what you can't do.

* I had to use Positive Self-Talking to turn my thoughts around.
This is a good Example for me, " I used to think I'll never lose weight, but then again there's nothing going on that can stop me."

When I gained Weight, I'd tell myself "I'm not going to stop."
It's a long process, I Look at the positive side:

I have lost weight and I'm still losing. This has helped me to keep going.

    You are so right on with how our thoughts can either push on to victory or hold us back.

Maintaining My Weight

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

People who are successful at maintaing their weight loss over time do as much or more physical activity than they did while losing weight.


Maintenance mode:

~Check your weight frequently (at least weekly) make changes to your nutrition and workouts as needed if their is a significant gain( or loss) for 2 weeks in a row.

~ Track your daily calorie intake- at least for a little awhile.
It's a good to double check yourself for awhile just to make sure you are counting everything, estimating portions accurately, and covering all nutrition needs.

~Make changes one at a time, and in small increments.
you want to be able to see changes if you do too much too soon. Give yourself a chance to see what works.

~Maintain your social Network
I Agree Totally here Sparkfriends help keep me Going.
Helping others do what I have done is one of the best ways to help myself maintain my Achievements.

*Remember that Exercising for weight management is NOT about the big Calorie burns you get from an Intense Workout Session- It's about WALKING a few extra steps everytime you can, a few JUMPING JACKS during commercial breaks, and taking the STAIRS instead of the elevator.
-doing things the Old Fashioned Way.

    Those are all really good pieces of advice. I've been reading the scientific literature on obesity and weight maintenance after losing and there's a really good paper here on that topic:

Bas
ically the bottom line is that you have to keep as vigilant for 5 years after losing the weight as you were DURING losing the weight, in order to have a reasonable chance statistically of keeping it off. When I get there I'm going to start a countdown to 60 months, as if it were like cancer.

We've been collecting information and literature about this over at our regional spark team:

    Love it! i was dancing to the music in my sons PBS cartoon today- my boys thought I was crazy! Like you said to park furthur away, walk all the way around the inside of the store befroe you go pay. Those little steps certainly add up - when you wear a pedometer you see that!!! You are such an awsome example! I know you will be able to keep on maintaining!!!! emoticon

7 Miles Non-Stop

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

I Jogged 28 x around High School Track This Morning For The First time, Thats 7 Miles Non-stop

Looking Back On A Previous Blog Entry The Max I have Ever Done Was 16 x =4 miles.

WOO-HOO ! 7 Miles

I Didn't Keep Up With The Miles, Just The Laps
Before I Knew It Lap 28 Came To An End
I Power walked The last 3 Miles, Total miles 10

I remember Saying " The More I Walk, The Better I Feel"
same Rule Now I can Say "The More I Run, The Better I Feel"

I Had Many Supporter Cheering Me On.
There was this Lady That said " she thought she was on the wrong Track until she saw me..... lol

10 Miles & Counting...

Thursday, June 25, 2009

I Had All The Intentions Of Just Power Walking My last 10 Miles For the Week.
I decided To Get in A Few Jog Miles(2 ) You Know For GP

Another Lady Jogged Up beside Me And Ask " If I Mind Her Joining Me"
I Was Already On Mile 1 When she Joined Me. I Continued Until She Got In Her 1 Mile, Which Was Mile 2 for Me. She Was Thankful because She usually Jogs half Mile. I'm Glad I Took Her Around 1 Complete Mile Non-stop.

Just Knowing I Had that Effect To Help Carry Someone Around The Track Was A Pat On The Back !


I Usually Don't Take Credit Where Credit Is Due.
Jusk Doing My Normal Job Is How I Look At It.

I Was Full Of Energy To Hit The Large Set Of Bleechers x 2 Sets.



I Jogged Another 3 Miles, power walked another 3 miles and Finally 1 Mile Kool Down.

4x around = 1 Mile

I got in 48x around track = 12 Total Miles For today.

I Have Power walked 10 Miles Everyday since Last Thursday (June 18th.) With a few More added Jogged Miles Included.

Total Miles Finished = 72 Miles
