Shake Up Needed

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

I keep finding myself content with where I am, well, maybe not content, but at least accepting, and I am not where I want to be, and I sure don't want to go back to where I was a year ago. I think I need an intervention. I at least need a new goal that I want to strive for, because my original is so very close, but I keep telling myself, not to work so hard, that it will happen, well, I can see that it is not going to happen without some serious help from me. But, I am not sure I care enough to strive for it. See, I realize that I need a shakeup, but not sure what will get me going again. I am still good about my walking jogging and treadmill, I have even added strength exercises to build muscles, but I am also eating, like there is no tomorrow.
You know I am way past the glamour part of it, I want to feel physically fit, have energy, wear my clothes without all the bumps, and basically feel good about myself.
So why am I feeling like I don't need it anymore?

    I had a real fear of reaching my goal weight & ended up sabotaging my own efforts. Working at it again but several pounds up rather than on 7 pounds to go.

    Mary, you will find that the strength training will do more for you than you think. Just keep at it and don't give up! It's what got me moving again when I was stuck at 178 pounds. Go Girl! Build that muscle!!! emoticon emoticon B

    I am not so close, but I get that way, too. I agree with both the other ideas. I am someone who has to do something new or something in a new way - trying different recipes helps me.

    It sounds to me like you've gotten stuck in a rut. Maybe you should try something new...a cooking class maybe. Try to do something that gives you something exciting to think about again.

    I hit this plateau not too long ago, so I completely understand what you are going through. I kept thinking, am I over analyzing the way I look? Am I making too big a deal about my weight/health? I'm not sure what snapped me back into place (and I'm sure it's different for everyone) but it's a life long journey we are making and our mind is going to try to play trick on us.
