Didn't want to but did

Monday, February 11, 2013

I had no desire to do anything today since I cheated a weigh in today. I was up 6 pounds and was totally pissed and confused at the same time. I felt my old "I don't care" feelings creeping up, but I relaxed, killed the drama and ate well today.

I also adjusted my goal to be by 12/31/2013 for more of a crispy goal that I can actually see in the 'near' future. Since I did this, my calories also adjusted - not higher, but lower.

Been upping the greens and stomaching raisins, walnuts, dates and other goodness that I know I need to like and eventually love. Nobody's getting younger and I have to do this.

I DID workout, I did eat well, I remained motivated and the scale does not define me; my behaviors, my love for myself and healthful life defines me.

I got this whipped for today at least.

    We all have times where we "slip up" but that's LIFE. :) It is going to happen. Super proud of you for jumping back in there and keep going! That's the difference between giving up and truly succeeding!

    Like they say "$h!t happens!!!" I agree with Chris, up the water intake and watch the sodium. Other than that, roll with the punches, you know you ate well and exercised and that's all that you can do. Keep it up and see what happens next week.

    Nice job avoiding "all or nothing" thinking! Consistency (not perfection) will be what gets you results. Keep up the great work!

    Good attitude! The path to a healthy lifestyle is not a straight line.

not sure of what your weight goals are, but I found it easier to make the chunks manageable by putting in 10 lb weight losses every 2-3 months.....that made the loss more sustainable and had me reach goals in the near term.

Focusing on non-scale victories helped a lot too. I started doing ST regularly and put on muscle as i lost fat. The result was not much movement on the scale, but a big difference in how clothes fit, taking in belt notches etc.

Keep at it!

    JOB WELL DONE !!! You overcame and conquered and that came against you. Sounds like you have a sense that this fight is worth fighting. emoticon

    Good for you for sticking to your healthy eating. The scale does lie some days, maybe try it again tomorrow.
