shoulda'.....but no Promises....instead a Statement!

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Coulda'.... stuck to my plan all the way through the End of 2012.......but i didn't!!! emoticon

Woulda'...seen better results........but i didn't!!! emoticon

Shoulda'.....been more disciplined.....especially since i know better......but i wasn't!!!! emoticon

Results?? The scale is up....but not just 'up' it is UP......way UP emoticon and it is not even funny.....i am still hoping and praying that it is Sodium....but i am probably...most likely..still delusional from all the extra Sugar i had throughout the past 2-3 weeks......

I know better....Sugar IS the enemy for me...and for everyone.....but especially to me...since "Cancer feeds on Sugar'......and that alone should be a huge Deterrence......yet i love anything sweet.......I should have a T-shirt made that reads:
...But i won't.....instead i will fight to conquer this 'Sweets addiction'!

I am very disappointed in myself.....i have come such a long way....but towards the end of 2012 i hit a roadblock......

And i am reusing one of my favorite pictures to give myself a 'Kick in the Behind"

See i am tired of 'Promises'...and 'I will''s just not enough anymore....not after being here on Spark for a good worked and looked good the first couple of years....making that Promise to myself and out here on a Blog......that 'Yes i will get to my Goal weight'...'I will exercise'.....'I will leave chocolate alone'........ok...ok...i did have to kind of 'sit out' for that one year...when i was sick.......but i was pretty much ok by the beginning of what is going on???

This was going on...all year long....

It is no longer an issue least i plan on making sure that the Stress i felt and was exposed to most of 2012....will no longer be an issue for or to me.....

I should write down my goals now...but it feels lame to me......since i know too well what i have to do to get to my ultimate Goal......I know it...and so do you...even if you are the first time on Spark! emoticon

So i am leaving you with the following images:

I said in my Promises.....instead I am giving this Statement:

I will reach my Goal of being at a healthy weight in 2013

    Nicely done!
Thank you for this, I am fighting with my sugar issues as I type this. South Beach Phase 1 Day 2. No sugar, no fruit, no grain. One day a time, right? Good luck in 2013! We can do this.

    I love all the work you do in finding these awesome pictures.
You are right, we know what we need to do. I like to saying "it is not knowing what to do, it is doing what you know." So, 2013 is the year of DOING! emoticon

    As a person that joined Sparkpeople years ago, dropped off, rejoined two years ago and finally found success, I can tell you, emoticon

If I can successfully lose and maintain a 40 lbs weight loss, anyone can...and I mean ANYONE! That means you, too!

You know what not to do and you know what to do, so just DO IT! Is it easy, no. Is is fast, no. Are you worth it, YES!

Many times it comes down to a moment. You've heard the saying take it day-by-day? Well many times it comes down to moment-by-moment. Taking that one moment to think, "Is this worth it?" (One bite of dark chocolate is! emoticon )

2013 is before you. Take that first step and make one "good" decision today. It will make the second, third, etc. easier. Soon, you will feel better and that will motivate you. Remember, you are just making improvements on yourself because you already are great!

    I have been reading the diet cure, not a book about curing diets.. but about holistic and natural ways to combat for instance sugar cravings, that one is suggested you take 5HTP and diff amino acids. also has chapters on low thyroid, diabetes, carb addiction,adrenal glad exhaustion... Interesting read. But do need to read it and do the questions to know what and how much to take.

    I recently blogged my 2013 "promises" to me! I liked the idea of promising not for spark, family or anyone else...just for me!
But also like your STATEMENT...leaving no room for "would of's" "could of's!" Just *WILL DO'S*!! As always..i will be cheering you along the way!

    I know just what you mean:::.....I can hear the tub of emoticon dough calling my name::....seriously! But, I made the choice to have a 1/2 of an emoticon was Great!...a 1/2 a emoticon and 2 pieces of toast to the side w/ natural peanut butter lightly spread over top. A nice 350 calorie b-fast!
I cannot say that the tub has ceased to sing, but I muted the sound...LOL! do what it takes. emoticon

    I left 2012 with a weight that was up ... WAY UP as well! I'm determined as you are, Taty - unfortunately, my blogs are not as nice as yours. . .but I could have written some of this one, too!

I need to refocus ... I need my SparkFriends (you all know who you are) to help me focus, focus, focus - and when I'm! Then I need support - chatting ... ups / downs - it doesn't matter, that constant support helps me tremendously. Then I need to exercise and eat right - all of the things that I also know.

Here's to a wonderful 2013 and to all reaching our goals ... that includes you too NEWNAC304!

    You are not alone, I could've written a lot of this blog. I don't want to make promises this year either. Focus on each day. Make it the best you can and hope each step gets me closer to goal.

Great blog, I needed to see this today. emoticon
