Has anyone seen my Mojo??

Thursday, February 12, 2009

I don't know what is wrong with me. I was full steam ahead. I lost about 7 pounds a month for 6 months. I made it through the holidays with a loss. Now nothing. I am playing with the same 2 pounds. I am up and down. I am currently 1 pound up from Christmas. I am not doing it. My friends are making excuses for me. I don't want excuses. I have been making excuses my whole life. I am not at a plateau. I am not building more muscle so the scale doesn't show. I am just not doing what I am supposed to be doing. Now the big question is WHY???? Why am I not writing down? Why am I finding that so hard after doing it for 6 months faithfully. I know that works for me. Why did I stop weighing my food and measuring my portions. Why did I stop making exercise my commitment and just do it when I can fit it in. Where did I lose my will to keep going. I still have 30 pounds to lose. That is alot of weight. If I don't get on the ball I will still need to lose this weight come September. So WHY WHY WHY???? I will ponder that question and let everyone know if I figure it out.

    Sometimes you body just needs to stop and regroup. That is not an excuse. I stayed on a plateau for 6 weeks. Talk about frustrating. But I went back and started again, weighing and measuring everything. I upped the ante on my exercise and I nearly floated away I am drinking so much water. Don't give up. Go back to basics.

    This is a tough one. I did this last year, too. Started the year full steam, lost 45 pounds, then - nothing. Gained back about 10 too. Extremely frustrating! It took me months to realize what I was doing to myself. The same 5-10 pounds, up and down. One day I finally realized that this is nuts! I've lost the same 5 pounds 3 times - I could be 15 pounds closer to goal! I got back to paying more attention to what I eat and exercising regularly (for me the first thing to go when I'm falling off track) .

Deep inside, you know what to do. One step at a time. Find one thing to concentrate on and get started. Track your foods, make yourself move for 30 minutes a day - something. Anything! Just put one foot in front of the other. Start by rereading the poem on your home page. All that valuable information is there. Take the time for yourself and get started. You deserve it - look how far you have come all ready!
