I Can Do This!

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Over the years I have tried getting the weight off but I seem to gain and lose the same 10-20 lbs over and over again. I need to get out of that vicious cycle.

The main thing for me is going to be to stay motivated in other words, consistency & not to be going strong for a couple weeks and then have it fizzle and go back to old self-defeating habits. I know I have the support of my family & that really helps.

I realize my husband asking how much I lost this week, or have I lost lately is him just trying to help me. I guess I get annoyed about it because I know I can do better and put more effort into it. I am actually more annoyed with myself than I am with him.

I know he wants me to get to a healthy weight so I can be more productive and be more active in the garden and yard stuff rather than just doing the canning and/or freezing. Also, I would be able to work more on the landscaping and flowers rather than doing the bare minimum.

I think back 20 years ago when we were living in Starkville, I was at a much healthier weight then and I worked in the yard, planted flowers more than I do now. I know I can do this, I did it before & I can do it again. I realize I am older so that will make it more difficult but I can and will do this. It just will take me staying committed to eating healthy and exercising regularly.

    Yes you can do this! 80% of the journey is our nutrition. I just had to get rid of all the junk, all the heavy carbs like breads & pastas. Once I got a handle on that, I found I was full on less. Sugars & processed junk had to go! It was sort of rough for a few days, but once I got past that, it was much easier.

    I know coming from Mississippi gardens are important and can be fun; however trying focusing some others things than work .. like playing with your grand children, or long walks with your DH ... You right you can do this though just take it one pound at a time .. dont worry about the next one till it is time to .. I am proud of you emoticon emoticon emoticon
