Another day of feeling better

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

I woke up this morning feeling a little thinner. i don't know if the scales would say that but i feel it and that is truly what matters. The better i feel about my body the more outgoing i am and i feel so much more motivated.. Making healthy choices and loosing excess weight is the best thing we could do for ourselves. The crazy thing is when i get some of the weight off and feel like a million dollars, i go and mess it up. I still haven't figured out why i do these things. I have 3 children and still have a little one at home and i need to get this excess weight off and be healthy so she has a mom she can count on.

The number on the scale is important but the way we feel is more so! As for the self-sabotage, is it like Angritter said and you need a maintenance plan? Or do you just lose motivation at some point? Where are things getting off track for you? Once you figure out when you start putting the weight back on the why should be easier to figure out and then you'll have a pretty good idea what to do about it!

    Everyone I know that has lost weight feels the same way after some time. It's easier to stop watching what you are putting in your mouth when you are thinner, but that's why we call this a lifestyle change. You have to ALWAYS watch what you eat.

I had admitted on this site several times that this is the first time I am losing weight without taking medication or some other weight loss scam. All naturale this time and it is working! 32.6 pounds gone in 6 months (I lost 6 before joining). So as long as I can keep the loss at the forefront of my mind, and remember the things I have learned here, I think I will keep it off. Plus, I plan to go on a maintenance plan and stay on this site when I lose and get to my ideal weight - which is SO NOT 150 pounds! At that weight, I would look like a crack addict! I will be happy at 210, ecstatic at 180 and overwhelmed with joy at 170.

And being realistic is a HUGE help!
