Finally I Got This

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I have lost weight, a lot of it, one time before and when I did I had hit a point where I just decided it was time to throw the excuses out of the window, where my desire to get heathly and feel good about myself was more important then any one moment that I enjoyed from eating those things that weren't helping the cause.

That was almost 20 years ago now. I was a teenager and I lost 50lbs and from that point to just a few years ago I had this weight loss formula down. Funny things happen to your body as you get older, what worked then, meaning the amount of exercise and amount of the "splurging" type behavior doesn't work now. When my body started to react differently (meaning now I have to work out more and eat less to get the same result) I didn't want to face it. I wanted to believe that I could continue with same balance and still stay the same size. I can't. I really can't.

So, I figured it out, I figured out how much I can eat, and how much I need to exercise at what intesity to get to where I want. I didn't accept it for a long time but here I am today, for the first time in a long time feeling truly committed. Feeling that way I did as a teenager when I had enough. I am throwing out the excuses and I am doing it.

It is a wonderful feeling. I am active, I am eating healthy and I am losing weight. I got this!

And That is How it is Done

Monday, January 14, 2013

I know I posted my accomplishments for the day earlier but I hadn't made it to bed time yet. It is amazing how mental the weight loss game is. I can't count the day a true success until I am in bed, without breaking down prior to bed time.

My body wasn't asking for more today, just my mind. I overcame the mental aspect by simply thinking more about how my body really felt. If I felt a little hungry but it wasn't time to eat then I tried drinking water. Overall having a good eating plan and deploying some copying mechanisms worked.

Truly if I want it enough then success will follow.

Good Night All & God Bless

    This is mental, and there is so much to figure out. I'm still trying. Good luck.

    I like it that your budgeting more calories for a special occasion. That's very realistic and also a little reward for yourself. I'm sure you'll do great!
