I'm one of those people who has to think everything through all the time. I don't do much on impulse, and when I do... I usually regret it. Same with weight loss. All this thinking, and planning, and researching, and never really doing....
I'm so tired of being fat. I'm so tired of my clothes not fitting. I'm so tired of hurting because I am fat. I'm just so tired of being tired.
So What is Stopping you?
Planning my meals is overwhelming. I just can't seem to stay on top of it. I always fail, and go back to eating fast food, gaining what I have lost back.
So make it simple for yourself.
I don't know how. I guess I should just quit eating all together. Anorexia is looking pretty tempting. That is how bad I want to lose weight.
Ha. Ha. Ha. You can't go a day w/o eating. You were all ready eyeing those candy bars that someone brought into the office for us to sell. So don't feed me that line of crap.
Need I remind you that not eating is un-healthy and you could die b/c of it? It's not like you are responsible for the upbringing of two amazing kids or anything.
Keep it simple. Go back to the basics. If you really want this... you can do this.
I do really want this. I just suck at meal planning. If only I could afford Jenny Craig or some other program where they tell me what to eat, so I can't decide to eat bad things. Those candy bars look really good....
Stop thinking about those candy bars.
You're right. Candy bars got me in this mess to begin with. OK. Basics. I can't afford Jenny Craig. Hmmmmmmmm.......
Keep it simple.
They tell you what to eat for 2 meals and 3 snacks a day... you have to be responsible for dinner.
Yes. But it would be a good opportunity for me to learn to eat right. One meal a day. While the other meals are just a given. Simple. Nothing I have to think about.
It could be a good springboard for you to start the weight loss. It would make things simple. Two slim fast shakes, two sensible snacks (fruit/veggies), and one sensible dinner. It would be easy to track. It is simple. Will take all of the focus and thinking out of it, and you can finally just do it. I won't have to listen to you complain all the time about how you don't know what to do, and how you are tired of being fat.
Oh I'm sure you'll still hear me complain. You're kind of stuck with me.
And I'll tell you zip it.
I wouldn't have it any other way. It's why I keep you around.
Go drink some Slim Fast or something. And don't forget exercise. That's part of the basics.
So what is stopping you? What excuse do you hide behind? How can you find a way around it so you can achieve the goals you have dreamed?
I am back to the basics today. I am forgetting about all the other things I have been side tracked by, and I am starting at square one. This is a learning process, and until I can trust myself to be full off of cottage cheese, fruit, and/or oatmeal for breakfast, I am just going to stick to a simple, throw together in two minutes breakfast. Until I can trust myself not to give into the greasy gods of fast food for lunch... I will fall back on a simple, throw together in two minutes lunch.
I realized yesterday that I have 23 weeks till my birthday. My daughter's dance recital is usually around my birthday. We will be going on vacation to a beach somewhere in June/July (DQ's dance competition for nationals will be either at VA beach or Myrtle beach). If I average around 2 lbs a week, and I am serious about this.... I CAN DO THIS. I CAN LOSE 46 lbs by my birthday. I could be more comfortable in a bathing suit for vacation. I could be more comfortable in my skin for the hectic stressful day that recital day is. I could be healthier... and possibly have a pain free back in 23 weeks?!?!? SIGN ME UP!
I haven't posted this blog because I want you to run out and buy up slim fast and do this with me. You do what you need to do to make this work for you. I posted this as a reminder for myself. So I can go back and re read this when my motivation wavers. I want to stay on track. I REALLY WANT THIS. I posted this blog because I had an epiphany. Because I am tired of holding myself back. Because I am going to achieve my dreams in 2013. I really hope you can too. Don't let whatever is stopping you... stop you any more. You are worth this. I am worth this. WE can do this!!!
