Hope Chest Challenge

Saturday, December 17, 2011

Just a little something...to keep me going.

Goals into next year. No I do not believe in New Year Resolutions.....

1. Drink about 8 glasses of water.

2. eat more fruit and veggies.

3. eat at least 3 whole grain daily.

4. Some for form of exercise 6 times a week. 1-2 days of weights (HUGH STRUGGLES).

5. Post Food, BS readings, and exercise.

6. Monitor emotional eating Closely------------ this includes prayer, and writing thoughts out on paper and talking things out. Negative thoughts!...The devil is a liar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

7. Cut off my night owl wings! emoticon Some of these are old goals but I have not always been consistent and that is what it takes.

The hope Chest Challenge is a storage box full of beautiful Clothes size 14 given to me by my wonderful and caring mother. Of course I am not a size 14 now. I am a couple sizer bigger but it does not have to stay that way. The goal is reachable and victory is just ahead. I use the hope chest it as a reminder of my goal this upcoming September 12, 2012.

    Clothes are always great motivation!! Those goals sound great and very attainable. How long are you going to give yourself to reach them?

    You can do if I can do it. My top weight was 242 lbs and I was a size 22. I was diagnosed with DM in June (lost about 30 lbs while undiagnosed and had no symptoms other than the gradual weight loss). Now with diet and exercise I have BSs under control and my weight is 155. I was the original couch potato. I was never a big eater but oohh did I love chocolate and sodas. Now I don't even want chocolate and have a diet soda once in a great while. I gained all my weight with three pregnancies and my oldest is 27 so all of my older clothes (yes I still have a lot of them) are 30 years out of date. And my clothes from even just two years ago are way too big. And I hate shopping for clothes. You will get to that size 14 to be able to wear all those beautiful clothes. It just takes hard work and perserverance. emoticon When you want that forbidden food just imagine yourself in one of your outfits and how everyone will be mesmerized by your beauty. And if you haven't tried the Edy's non sugar added fruit bars, they are heavenly when you crave something sweet. But they do contain sugar alcohols so if you are sensitive to them you might want to avoid them. Stick to your goals and you will be that size 14 in no time. ANd then everyone can say emoticon and emoticon
