September is here and I am ready for it

Tuesday, September 01, 2009

Despite the fact that we have electricity outages nearly every day, when I have electricity I take the opportunity to exercise when it is on. Because of the bad weather (often it is raining) and that many a path are muddy, it is hard to walk outside but this will NOT stop me in reaching my goals. By October 1st, I am aiming at losing 7 lbs which would bring me down to 160 lbs. I know I can do it if I put my mind and energy in it.

Disappointing month!

Monday, August 31, 2009

The month of August proved to be a a disappointing month for me. I have basically not lost any weight nor inches during this month.

My fitness level though is way up and I am feeling good about that. I have done over 57 and half hours of exercises in August.

Again, August was disappointing for the weight loss part but September is here tomorrow so... a new month begins. I will not let this spoil my enthusiasm for fitness. Voila!

    Keep that positive attitude and AWESOME JOB on the exercise. I think August was a test month for A LOT of us. I'm not sure why I also struggled this month with motivation but I kept on doing what I've been doing and I too will go into Sept. with a POSITIVE attitude. All my best to you and God Bless. Rick

    The same exact thing is happening to me this month too! I am still working out, but it sure doesn't help me feel very motivated. I'm finding myself wanting to go back to enjoying my food and doing less every day I don't notice chance. I have to force myself to do everything I do!

    emoticon on the fitness time you've put in.
I know you're on a dreaded plateau at the moment but stay on track and things will move again soon.
Don't depair hum. Look how far you've come and that's all down to your own determination and efforts,
Eat well, stay active and live long

    I am very proud of you! Your disappointment is understandable, however there is good news. You didn't gain anything. The enormous load you carrying everyday takes it's toll. even though you carry said toll, you meet it each day head on and still maintain a relatively positive life. You haven't given up under circumstances that would have left many whimpering in a corner with hands up in despair. You are a wonder of delight and I for one admire you. Keep smiling Sunshine! It is a new day. emoticon

I was too overconfident!

Sunday, August 23, 2009

I weighed myself higher today than I was last week! The inches varied on the lower side so not all is lost. emoticon This coming week, I will be more careful about my food consumption.

    I always take my measurements when I weigh because my weight shifts around and i am still getting smaller, even when I don't lose weight.

  Been there, done that, so I know how you feel. It's frustrating that the scale makes such a difference in your attitude. Just concentrate on the inches lost. The scale will probably show a bigger loss next week!

    Don't beat yourself up about the increase. Remember, muscle weighs more than fat and if you went down in inches, than you built muscle. You are doing great. ((HUGS)) Linda Kay

    Hey hun your weight can vary by as much as 5 pounds in a week. Don't lose heart or have a knee jerk reaction and overcompensate, just stay on course.
The weight will come off- and remember you're fitter and healthier now and you've lost inches..all measures of your success

    Please don't forget that fluctuation is normal at any time. It is good to be aware and redirect as needed but don't be discouraged! You have a great attitude and that alone is a large part of the journey to better health. Love, hugs and blessings and as always keep smiling Sunshine! emoticon

It CAN be discouraging...

Sunday, August 16, 2009

Although I am working out on a regular basis and am within my calorie range, my weight loss is really too slow. Thinking back to 2004, I did go on a diet which was called "Fit for Life" by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond. It is not actually a diet but a way of eating. They do not combine proteins with carbs. You can eat carbs with veggies and proteins with veggies. No pasteurized milk products. Fruits only in the morning. Maybe I will try this again because I did manage to lose some weight back then and since I am hypothyroid, it is a regime that is recommended. It will not be easy because my family members will not eat like I will. Meal planning will be a tad more difficult.

    Hi there I'm glad to see you're off your plateau,
Surely your family will support your new food regime if it helps keep you healthy,
Just be prepared for the extra work in the kitchen and don't get side tracked eh?
You can do this...if this is what you want GO FOR IT!!!!!!
Luv and hugs
