Riding the Waves...

Sunday, September 02, 2012

I have had this pic up on my page on and off many times. It's really how I need to approach my life a lot of the times. There are things I can control and things I can't and some things I should have controlled, didn't, and now reaping the consequences. But instead of falling into a depression again, I'm going to ride those waves and do the best I can. I'm learning to surf the waves of life. :)

Yesterday I think I did pretty dang well with my eating. I stayed within ranges and I felt terrific about it. Today, not so great. I am over by quite a bit... but, I'm still ok with it. My plan is to even out the calories tomorrow... and then continue on, with even more determination to not give in to temptation. I also weighed this morning... back up again: 247. It's hard to believe how heavy I am. I often don't "feel" that heavy... but I sure do look that heavy... ugh.

But, today is the last day I'll ever weigh 247! YAY! emoticon

    I'd like to join this blog. My main goal in life is to lose weight. I surf about 4 times a week and live near Waikiki. I'm a 70 year old male. My weight is 180 today and I'd like to get back into the 160's. I'm 5'10". Surfing is much easier at a lower weight.
    Like almost everyone else I eat way too much.

    You go sister! I don't feel like I weight 265 either, but when I see pictures of me working out, I can SEE it. I don't even recognize myself sometimes, and that's the worst.

    I am learning to look at myself every day in the mirror to get to know the REAL me. It's hard, but I need to do it so I can face the fact that I am a WIDE LOAD and need to be a VW Beetle!

    Great approach! Ride the waves instead of trying to stop the tide.

    Personally, I have found that to make it all "work" for myself for the long-haul... and have a true LIFESTYLE change, I am better off looking at the weekly picture. Because some days I might not be 100% successful with my eating or exercise, but over 7 whole days it can all come together to make a pretty acceptable 'picture'. So anyway, I am just giving you words of support and encouragement.
    I love that tomorrow is always another day and especially that God's mercies are new each day!!

    I've had a thousand day ones...and I'll have more as I'll fall but I'll never ever give up.

    Forgive yesterday, hope for tomorrow, do better today. We can't be perfect, but we can strive to choose the better choice.

    What would you have done in the past? Some would give up and berate themselves, which makes things worse. So how you can you do better now? Just as you said, continue on and keep trying. One mistake, even one day, isn't going to make or break a healthy lifestyle. Forgive any errors in judgement and learn from them. Ride the waves - work on balancing through the wind and water and if you fall then find the shore so you can head back out and try again.
