It is that time....a time of resolutions and new determinations. I ask myself why make one, I'll just break it. But I want to be done with that attitude. I need a new attitude! So what if I screw up. Babies don't come out running.....it's a process but they never stop. I'm upset with myself, I keep loosing the same pounds. But, I refuse to give up. I was doing good then the holidays hit. I knew I wouldn't loose and may gain because I haven't gotten to the stage where I am willing to give up the holiday goodies...so, I'm paying the consequences. Probably STARTING a diet before thanksgiving and all through the holidays wasn't smart, but I did. I thought I had til April or May to loose my first goal of 50 lbs but my daughter is visiting from Germany maybe in March so I'm gonna have to step up my plans. I bought a 2012 calendar "The Biggest Loser" with all kinds of diet tips, a place to put everything where it's always a reminder. I will still use SparksPeople cuz I don't want EVERYTHING out in the open for all to see!
Our contest at work is starting up again Jan 6 and will go May 25. The motivation for the money will help me get started, the motivation the be smaller by the time my daughter comes with my new granddaughter and my sweet grandson will motivate me to keep going....and my daughter wants to loose weight from being pregnant so she will help me stay on track when she is here!
I'm in the preparation stages right now....getting my menus together, shopping lists, motivational board. I'm going to order the program slim in 6 and hope that helps me get in shape faster.
I'm gonna need your encouragement and support. Feel free to share what has worked for you and keep me on my toes. I'm bad at consistency, but I'm going to try really hard to keep my food and exercise tracker up to date and all. If you have any yummy recipes, please share!
Shedding pounds in 2012!
