An Update Since My Last Blog!

Saturday, January 05, 2013

First off when I got on that scale and saw that I gained soo much weight which was higher than my weight when I first started Sparkpeople my heart dropped & I was really sad and I felt like such a failure! But than I forced myself to read what others wrote and I was grateful! I decided right than that this is the last time I ever feel this low again! I than made many changes & I owe you all many thanks Thanks soo much to everyone for the really great advice & support! I really appreciate that! I have changed some things since this last Blog was written I'm now drinking water & working out everyday except Sundays! Thats my one day off or I might just do a 10 minute workout! I read everyone's comments & it was soo helpful that you could relate & I was not alone. I took the suggestions & revamped my kitchen all junk food is now gone Chips Candy etc anything that can hinder me getting my goal met! To help with my cravings I tried to learn how to knit so I could keep my hands busy but I just could never get the hang of it! I now go on Sparkpeople and read some good articles & thats helping while I chew 2 pieces of gum in my mouth! So I'm trying new things & I'm just not going to buy Chips or Sweets because than it will be too tempting & I'm just not strong enough! So its a fight but I'm soo ready to succeed In regards to my Water I now take just a little bit of Chrystal Light & put a tiny bit in my Water Bottle & than I shake it up good & now I can drink water & like it! I have this one bottle big enough for exactly 8 glasses a day & I make sure I drink that before the night is over! I am now eating alot more Veggies & Im finding a way to enjoy them! So I'm making some big steps toward finally getting maybe close to 170 lbs! Either way I'm just gonna keep pushing & if I'm eating healthy & working out consistently hopefully that weight will just fall off & I will get to my Goal! I can only hope that this will finally be my year! So again thanks soo much for all your advice support & caring words!
Thanks soo much your words meant soo much to me you have no idea!
Thanks again :)

    It sounds like you are making some good choices!

    I do a lot of crocheting while watching TV. A neighbor taught me how to do it when I was about 8 years old and I have done it ever since. Don't give up! There are some great tutorial videos out there that will help you figure it out. I still use them!

    Keep up the good work!

    Way to go on making all the changes. Especially the eight glasses of water. Fat in the body is water soluble and water is the only way to get rid of it. emoticon

    Try knitting or crochet again - I have found it definitely keeps my hands out of a a feedbag or the kitchen.
