I give up!

Sunday, April 20, 2008

No difference this week, surprise, surprise, surprise.
My brothers birthday today, 49 years old. I did a big sponge covered with cream, passion fruit and mangoes.. I'm sure I put on 5 pounds just looking at the thing. Meanwhile he announces that he has lost a couple of pounds eating the same as me.
There is an Aussie saying "May your chooks (chickens) turn into emus and kick your dunny (toilet) down" I reckon he deserves chooks the size of hippos!!
I've worn myself out fixing up the garden ready for winter veggies, shearing the one goat we have (not an easy job when she wont stay still), cleaning up the collected crap around the place and still I don't lose weight. Not fair I say.
I showed my brother the cartoon included this week today, he just about gagged with the idea, I just about peed my pants at his reaction and at the funny.

I hope somewhere out there someone lost some pounds, come to think of that's probably where mine went!

    Well Juleen my last 6 weeks have been zero, zero, one pound, zero, one pound, and zero.

But I've lost 39 altogether so far, so I am being patient w/ my body.

Keeping good thoughts that you see results soon!

    That cartoon is simultaneously disgusting and hysterically funny.

Don't give up!

Its easy to get discouraged but just keep at it. Personally, I made tremendous progress last summer and around October, I stalled out and my weight loss levelled out. The next 5 months saw relatively no change and I stopped exercising in January! I hadn't weighed myself in months because I was afraid that I had gained back about 20 pounds. Finally, when I took my daughter to her doctor appointment, I stepped on the scale and realized that I "only" gained about 8 pounds. Although not good, that's a far cry from what I had feared and it inspired me to get back to exercising. So I've started walking again. Its not much but I know that every little bit helps.

That's the key: every little bit helps. Think long term. Maybe its substituting water for caloric drinks at first. Maybe its just walking a mile a day. Maybe its just an hour extra of sleep a day. But over a period of 2 months, it all adds up.

I didn't meet my weight loss goal as of 12/31/07 like I wanted to but I'm resetting my goal for 12/31/08.

Good luck with yours!

    Juleen, you have a very strange sense of humor and I love it! LOL! Don't worry about not losing any weight this week - as long as you are not gaining that is something to celebrate!
