Day 227: Can We Try This AGAIN!

Saturday, September 22, 2012

I went from a new low of 141.2 to 148.4 in one week.
This is why I don't believe in days off, or weekends off. This is why I can't EVER give up. This is why you have to push EVERYDAY! This is why you have to think before you do.. or eat.. or don't exercise...or give into temptations.. or cravings. This is why you always have to be aware. This is why you ALWAYS have to hold yourself accountable. This is why you can never ignore. This is why this is not a diet with the option of coming off of it. This is why I have to grow up and grow a pair. This is why I have to be strong. This is why I need to be the person I want to be. Strong and brave and controlled. I KNOW that a lot of the weight I have put on over the past few days very well could be salt, water, whatever.. But you know what... it wouldn't be an issue at all if I would have been in control. I could have been still moving forward and not taking one step forward three steps back if I would have shown control. Yes, I'm hard on myself. I have to be a bit during times like this. I can't baby myself and not hold myself accountable or this will always be an issue. I have to figure out what to do. Actually I know what to do. I have to man up and take my vitamins and jump on the treadmill instead of the bag of pita chips. I have to do this! I have to take control! I can not let my emotions and hormones take over. I HAVE TO DRIVE THIS TRAIN!! I CAN NOT LET OTHERS IN MY LIFE AND SITUATIONS IN MY LIFE AND PMS AND CRAVINGS AND MINDLESS BINGING DRIVE ME. I have to take control. I can not let everything around me control me. I am an adult. I have to act like one. If I want to look and feel like a strong beautiful healthy woman then I need to act like one. I WILL get there. I can do this. I will do this. I am growing up. This is all part of it. I will be ok.

  I'm all for pushing yourself to reach your goal. Just don't push so hard you burn yourself out. Take care of YOU! emoticon

    I hear you loud and clear. I loved the motivational poster about the fact that sometimes you will have a binge, not exercise etc. I didn't have much of a binge on ice cream and onion rings but enough to put on 2 pounds. I am trying to get back to eating clean and not snacking so I thank you profusely for your honesty and inspiration. It was just what I needed. emoticon

    It all comes down (for me) to consistency, consistency, consistency.
Consistency is HARD! But I believe it works.
You are doing great by talking to yourself in a positive, encouraging way. Degrading yourself will just make everything worse.
So hold your head up and keep on keeping on.
You got this!!

    I'm so relating to you on this one. If I didn't exercise the way I did this week, I would have had a huge gain with all the binging I did. I am so mad at myself because I would have had a huge loss if I didn't binge the way I did. Need to take control, we can do this Sara.

Hope you have a great weekend! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am with you that there is no day off. I don't do cheat days. Everyday is a healthy day. There are days that I enjoy treats in moderation. I'm also hard on myself like you are and others may not understand it, but it keeps me on track and seems like it does for you too! The one thing I'd consider is that tons of research has shown that slow, consistent weight loss is what people maintain. You will get back to goal. I know you will. I also know that maintaining that goal is more important than reaching some magic number and then gaining some weight back.
You've got this! You will be back to 140 is no time!!!

    I always tell myself that I will reap later what I sow today. So if I have a cake It'll hold up my weight loss. If I cycle 20 miles, it'll help it along. I like cycling and I like cake emoticon

You are so right when you say that you can never give up. Your weightloss is inspiring, keep up the good work.
