enough is enough

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

So, since my last blog enrtry 10 days ago, I wish I could say that a stranger asking me if I was haing a boy or a girl (NOT PREGNANT... just fat), changed my behaviors.... but it hasn't. I have a myriad of excuses, but the bottom line was that I just didn't change my eating habits.

To add insult to injury, I ordered a new bathing suit (miraclesuit, of course... I'll take all the help I can get!), and was quite disappointed when I tried it on and looked in the mirror. emoticon

Today, I had to turn in a form to order new white coats for this next year. I decided to order 2 sizes- my current size and the next size smaller.... to help motivate me to get things going again. As you can imagine, most people don't order 2 different sizes... of anything clothing related... so I had to offer an explanation. I told them that I was trying to lose weight. I came out at said it. I mean I have talked about it other people, but this is different. Now I feel a sense of obligation to wear the smaller white coat before the next year is over... to prove my ordering 2 different sizes isn't completely stupid. And perhaps a little more accountability isn't a bad thing.

In that spirit, I got off work super early today, so I went back by a certain store that I have not been to in months.... My Fit Foods! The wonderful store that prepares healthy, low-cal, low-fat, and some low-carb meals. I bought several days worth of dinner. And I put my BodyMedia Fit back on... no fooling myself about my calorie burn.

And I worked out for the first time in a long time after I got home! There was alot of jiggling involved. Driving home the point that I really need to get back on track. 8 1/2 wks until the Bahamas vacation with my inlaws!! My time is running out for that goal.

Time to get to work!! emoticon

    I'm glad you posted. I had my gallbladder removed on Thursday, so I've been laying around quite a bit thinking. One thing that pops into my head is this whole losing weight deal. Like your other friend who left the comment, I have all the right tools, yet I've only gained weight. I'm going to start trying something a little different. Instead of setting out counting all the calories and measuring, I'm just going to work on three goals: 1. Drink 8 glasses of water 2. Eat 7 servings of freggies and 3. Move for at least 10 minutes each day.

I hope I will begin to see some progress and then if needed, move into the full tracking mode. I think I need to make it simple for now.

    You can do this. It's just a matter of finding what will get both of us out the door. For me, it's realizing I've had all this time with the right tools, and I haven't used them. So instead of getting healthier/thinner, I've gained weight. I can't go back and re-do yesterday to make it a progressive day. And I have no control over what might happen to me tomorrow. But I do have control over today. Now. What am I willing to do NOW to reach my goal tomorrow? Am I willing to make the most of my time? Or am i going to just watch it pass me by?
