Enough self pity already!


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, February 18, 2012




I am not going to lie. I have had a reallllly bad week. Cracker Barrel Tuesday, Pizza Thursday, and Hershey Bar last night. I am officially 208 this morning. 3 pounds up from Tuesday's weigh in. I can NOT believe how self destructive I can become! All over a $18 discount at the gym! Yes, seeing the nutrionist every other month, and talking to the trainer once a month was cool, but come on, I am the one in control of my life not a insurance program! I know what I need to do! It is up to ME! And this chick, my friends, is not about to give up!



There are going to be trials in your life that are going to throw you for a loop. At that point you have to suck it up! You are stronger than you think! Those few minutes of pleasure that you might get from sticking a piece of candy in your mouth is not worth it.



So today I'm making a plan. A plan that is going to work. Why you ask? Because I'm going to make it work. The only person that is holding me back is me.



I AM going to get under 200 before my Birthday next month, because I said so!

    You are right. It is all up to each individual person and no one else. That person has to have a POSITIVE outlook on all aspects of health.

  Thanks for letting me know I am not the only one out there! I need to remember that making a mistake once is just that, a mistake; making it twice is a choice...and now I know there are 3 choices... emoticon

    Thank you for this. I seem to be right where you are. The same few pounds, up and down. But seeing that others are dealing with this and making progress helps me so much. By standing firm in your commitment, you are encouraging others in theirs.

    ....and you will! We all know it but what's most important is that you believe. I ate out four times last week not including donuts on Saturday morning. I don't know why we do this but the important thing is that we move forward. You are, we will. Me and you girl.....Onderland bound!! WOOT WOOT~

    i feel ya, last night my snack or was it my dinner? i ate an entire pint of B&J's ice cream and then i had the gall to slam somebody about eating at mcDonalds - like i was doing anything different to my body! emoticon ... but the Choice to just do it and be accountable is emoticon ... and for me, today my body was just craving anything but Sugar. and so far, I still can't seem to get over 700 calories for the day? but I'm working on it! btw, my day is backwards this week (since it is almost midnight)... emoticon emoticon

  Yes, you CAN DO IT! We all fall and give in to weak moments now and then (I had a bad week of ingesting too much sugary food - slice of chocolate cake and the next day 1/2 of bread pudding) I felt depressed at first, but then decided (like you said, we have a choice) not to let it get me so down that I would give in. Keep fighting for it, keep digging, keep up the good work. Each day is a new day to make better choices and get moving! emoticon
