Never, Never Give Up

Thursday, January 31, 2013

I'm so excited this morning, after a continual gain [from eating to much processed food and high sodium meals from eating out]; I've finally, lost another 3 lbs this past week!!! I did it by cutting out the high sodium I was consuming and also, started cooking at home. I know I need to keep the momentum going, can't let myself get discouraged by how slow it takes to lose.. I'm not a teenybopper anymore [back in the day when 6 lbs off was my normal weekly loss at WeightWatchers] not going to happen this time around [older and less active] and not in a rush to lose to the point I make unwise decisions like I did back then. #1 stupid thing I did, was giving up ALL oil! Wanna keep your gallbladder don't be cutting out the oils and other healthy choices. Frankly, I hope I've learned more about this process, and that it is more than a number on the scale. emoticon (The girlfriend that use to go to the meetings with me, would get so mad at me for complaining about those weigh in's [especially, those that showed less than a 5 lbs loss.. because all she could lose was one or two lbs a week and yet, I was the one crying and throwing emotional temper-tantrums every week over so little results emoticon , what she wouldn't love to say to me now!) emoticon

Truthfully, 8.8 lbs for the month of January still doesn't seem like that much to me and maybe others see it that way too; but, I know with time it all adds up to a healthier body and life style, and success if we NEVER Give Up.. So, big or small losses, I'M PRESSING FORWARD.

Being at 308.4 doesn't sound great, but it sounds better then 330! MY total loss so far has been 21.6 lbs AND the bad attitude of, I can't do this, is gone!!! emoticon emoticon

The Key is, "NEVER, NEVER Give UP!!!"

    8.8 pounds is a wonderful accomplishment for one month! If you can average 2# per month, then you are more likely to keep the weight off. You are doing great!! Keep up the great work and you will succeed in this long weight loss journey. May God bless you and keep you in His loving arms!

    As long as you keep moving, you're lapping everyone on the couch.

    An average of 2 pounds per week is just what Dr. Spark ordered...

That is the rate that is more likely to keep it off than the higher rates.
