Day 141: Let's Try This Again..

Monday, May 21, 2012

I swear that time is flying! It always seems like it's Monday again! So, here we go. I need to pep myself up for another week, and hopefully another bit of weight loss. I'm wondering if when maintaining, if it will then be a little more relaxed. Yes, still exercise everyday. Yes, still eat right, but maybe just a little less.. I don't know..life or death determination behind it.
I'm a little nervous with Memorial Day weekend coming up. This is when we start to go up to the mountains a good bit. This is great and scary at the same time. I go up with my parents so I'm not the only one in charge of food. Very scary. Also, now don't laugh, I won't have a computer so I won't have my life line of Sparkpeople to come and pep myself up for the day. To get out negative feelings and fears. To force positive thoughts into there place. I might have to suck it up and use a real journal for a few days. PLUS, I will be giving up my streak! Look at all of these days in a row I've been able to keep this up. I don't want a speed bump to throw me off course and make it a lot easier to keep me off course. I HAVE GOT TO FIND THE STRENGTH to make it through these trips up there without throwing everything I've worked for away. I CAN DO THIS! I CAN DO THIS! I CAN DO THIS! I have got to grow a back bone. I have got to be able to say, "No thank you. I do not want to eat that piece of pie, that bowl of ice cream, that milk shake, and greasy fried chicken. I want to eat the way I want to eat AND THAT IS OK. It is ok to be me. I DON'T HAVE TO BE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. I DON'T HAVE TO EAT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE! It's not the end of the world if I make my own meal if everyone else is eating a way that I don't agree with. I don't have to be forced to eat things I don't agree with. I CAN STAND UP FOR MYSELF!! I CAN DO THIS!!! I AM STRONG! I AM BEAUTIFUL! I AM WORTH IT!!!


Time to weigh in!

    Bring a journal with you and write as if you were writing your blog online. When you come back, you could write a synopsis of your little getaway. You are a strong and determined woman and I will be sending you positive thoughts everyday. I will miss your blogs though. I read them everyday. You will be fine, and if you go overboard a little, forgive yourself.

You can do it!!! emoticon

    I see this as a challenge for you. It will prove to you that this is not just dieting, but a lifestyle, that you're doing things right and that you have learnt a lot along the way. It's going to be easy after the first time you say NO. But that first time is the key.
So...Good luck!

    You are definitely worth it and I love that you're saying "I don't have to eat like everyone else."..I can't believe that I still feel that peer pressure and high school was ages ago :)..Have a great day. emoticon
