I Refuse to Give Up- I Am Recommitting


Tuesday, March 15, 2011

I am in the 10th week of my weight loss journey. Some really great things have happened along the way- I have lost 10 pounds; I am now exercising; I look a lot better and I feel a lot better about myself; and my daughter is picking up some of my healthier habits. I still have 20 more pounds to go and these last 2 weeks have been extremely hard for me. It could be because I started birth control or maybe I am simply losing motivation. I didn't even go to the gym today which is something I have been pretty consistent about doing on my days off. I want to eat ALL the time- primarily chocolate.

I don't want to give up. I am not going to give up. I don't want to be like some of the people who started out strong and now they are no longer on Spark. I am renewing my commitment to my weight loss goals. For the remainder of the month:

*I will not buy any junk food.
*I will exercise for at least 30 minutes 3 days week.
*I will start strength training 3 days a week.
*I will drink at least six 8 oz glasses of water daily and work my way back up to eight glasses.

I am going to finish this month out strong. I deserve to have a better body. I will reach my goal no matter how long it takes and learn to enjoy myself along the way. I have the rest of my life to get this right.

    Not buying any junk food is a good step, practically speaking. I find that if I buy junk, I eat it, and not necessarily in reasonable portions. (Great for those who can do it, but I can't.) The ideal is to win our battles at the grocery store, and not even bring home what we don't want to eat. Also, some foods with sugar, salt and fat are addictive and can cause cravings. Sometimes not eating them at all is easier than trying to eat just a little. We each have to learn what we can personally handle.

Most important is not giving up! emoticon

    Never ever give up even when there is chemical things that make you want to stop. If the BC keeps doing this to you, you might talk to your doctor. Sometimes those things will zap seratonin which makes you happy and motivated.

  Good for you! Celebrate that weight loss and how good you feel. Some days are harder than others, believe me I know, but eating healthy and feeling lighter feel so good and have long-term benefits.
