Day one

Friday, July 16, 2010

I am tempted to reset my account .... something has to give.... I am back up to 220 ... well 224.7 ...

I am feeling a little bummed. I was so motivated 2 years ago. I never thought I would hit such a major road block. I have had a crazy time. It seems like a laundry list of excuses... Grandparents died... stress, issues, bad patterns, depression.... I will convince myself that I don't have the energy to go to the gym. The kids won't like it , I will be too worn out because of it. Worst of all I tell myself that I don't need to log ... "I am keeping a mental log of it "
ALL lies!

I know how to loose weight .... eat healthy, work out , LOG, BLOG, and own up to it ! Take responsibility for it. I am tired of feeling bloated, my clothes are all too tight, I have been rewarding myself with food. I want to feel better about pictures of me! We were looking through the album tonight and just as recent as New Years I was 200 ... 25 POUNDs in 7 mo!!!!! NOT OK !! I am going to start over and try blogging daily ....I have yo get back on track I refuse to end up back at 260!

    It's so great to see you, my friend! Sorry about your grandparents & the rest of the stuff you're going through. It's good that you recognized where you were headed again & decided to take action.

I'm like you...I know what I need to do but I'm really good at finding reasons why I can't do it. I'm finally at the point where (most of the time) I decide that making changes is more important that making excuses. You know that you'll feel better & have more energy after you go to the gym & the kids will be fine. We can go together & you can laugh at my feeble attempts to use those blasted ST machines. I can get myself in some of the most awkward positions on those things!

Reset your account if it helps. Log, blog & own up to it (sorry, but I'm definitely stealing this phrase)! Just do what you need to do to take care of yourself. I can't wait to watch your progress & cheer you on!

    If re-setting everything to zero will motivate you, do it NOW!!! Whatever it takes to get you back on track. I speak from experience. After my father died I gained almost 40 lbs in less than a year. That was after gaining 15 lbs the previous 6 months while he battled the cancer. It's taken me 2 years to lose 35 of those lbs.

Whatever you need to do to stop the backslide, do it!! You are worth the effort.

    Hang in there, Jen! You are an amazing woman, mom, friend and MOPS steering committee member! Being a mom is hard and sometimes it's hard to find time for yourself...especially with the crazy summer schedule. I love you, will be praying and thinking of you and know you can turn this around!

    YES, wake up you have the tools, I have been there so many times. We get tired complacent or life bums us out and can't seem to cope. So get back on the wagon and we will all keep up with you!!! emoticon
