The same two #s..over and over again

Friday, February 05, 2010

I have lost and gained the same two pounds ever since July. I could get discouraged when I see it happening over and over, but instead I choose not to.

If I added up the same two pounds it would be at least 20 pounds I have lost...why can I not just add that to the 80 I HAVE lost and say I have lost 100 pounds...guess it does not work like that..

These two pounds are my enemy. I mean it. They are not my friend..

Maybe that is my problem, maybe I should make them my friend. Who knows?

I am remaining positive though, that is a good thing. I still believe that I will see my Spark goal.
I still believe in ME. I still continue to eat healthy 90 per cent of the time. I continue to exercise 90 per cent of the time. The thing is..I need to boost that up a peg..get it all back to at least 95 per cent of the time.. This is my goal, my plan. It may not be possible until spring, but I will certainly give it a try. In the spring I will be able to get outside and walk again, winters present a problem in Michigan, but like I said..I will try.

I am determined to get to my goal weight. Once I do...another goal will be set. I will be below 130 pounds by the end of 2010. My next goal 129. Remember I am short and need to get down in order to look better and feel better. This journey has been full of valleys and mountains and I walk it with the most wonderful support team I could ask for...I thank all of my Spark friends for helping me, sometimes pulling me along, sometimes pushing me, but always...always I remember you are walking this journey with me. And...TOGETHER we WILL do this..

    Trudy.... you know how that same issue has been plaguing me for over a year! And you've been super encouraging to me... so let me do the same for you!

    What you (and I) don't take into account each time we berate ourselves for those pesky 2 pounds is that we have lost (80 lbs in your case and 60 in mine) a signifcant amount of weight AND we have kept it off! If that's not a great accomplishment well then nothing is.

    Yes, it would be great to get to goal, and given how stubborn we both are, we will do it! Who can stop us? Duh... no one but ourselves.

    Be good and have a great weekend.

    Trudy, you rock! And just imagine...if you hadn't kept staving off those two pounds, you would be UP 20 now! You are a trooper...a warrior! Good luck. You sounds like you have a good base to reach your dreams!

    Trudy, you still contiue to inspire me, despite your gaining and losing the same two #. I agree though, that maybe a step up or a change in your exercise routine would be just the trick you bout some hot and fast dancing around the house or step aerobicss!!! emoticon

    Are you switching up your routine? I have that problem every 5 pounds. It's like I just stop and stay there and that is the advice everyone gives me.
