It's Been Three Weeks

Monday, March 11, 2013

And I feel that I've accomplished nothing in the gym. I'm totally enjoying the workout, sometimes it can be very challenging but I have four other workmates and we laugh at each other a lot. I'm the oldest in the midst and I do pretty well for myself emoticon or so I think.
My weight hasn't changed because I can't seem to find the courage to tell myself no to a treat or two. I'm simply eating too much and I need to put some stuff into perspective emotionally and or mentally.
I joined a Team that primarily deals with "accountability" which is what I think I need the most at present and I'm going to try my utmost to make this thing work for me.
So enough about me, anyone who has been through this part of the journey and came out victorious is free to stop by and share some words of wisdom emoticon , something's got to give. All the best Sparkies.

    Don't give up. You can DO this. I love my treats too. I have many little ones a day. I try to stick to the low calorie goodies. Today I enjoyed a fiber one brownie for 90 calories and a greek frozen yogurt for 100 calories. I eat more calories in snacks per day than the actual meal. You can do it. Honest. I have faith in you. I have just been altering my treats. I have been craving pizza for about a week. So I made an alternative one that was very delicious and low calorie. Hit the spot. I am glad that you are having fun working out. That is where I am slacking. I just don't have the energy to work out when I finally get home at the end of the day. Best of luck to you ... emoticon

    Give yourself permission for that treat but tell yourself to wait just 20 minutes and then go and do something else. I usually find that the desire to have the treat has gone away especially if I have had a hot black coffee during that 20 minutes and perhaps gone on to SP to read some inspiring stories. This works for me most of the time.

If you still eat the treat make sure you track it as you may be able to make up the calories in the next meal or over a few days. Good Luck!

  You seemed to stay very determined though the scales are not cooperating right now. Keep up the workouts with your 4 friends, and the scales may decide to cooperate. Best of luck in meeting all your goals today.

    Sometimes it takes a while & while you may not notice it on the scales, you will feel it in your clothes. Just hang in there!

    I have those plateaus also. Many times it is because I want to eat chocolate and DO. Keep going.

    Hi Slim, I hear you so well and I'm so horrible at being consistent every day. I'll have a good day then a not so good one which seems to cancel that out. So, I'm sitting still with no progress right now. I'm frustrated but only with myself. I know reading the book, The Spark always helps me feel more motivated and inspired again so I'd better dust that book off and start re-reading it. At least you're going to the gym and having fun that's more than I've been doing recently. I find the Winter and colder months here are harder for me than the warm summer months. I'm not too worried as this has happened before and I'm sure we'll both get ourselves back in the swing of things very soon. You've made wonderful progress and we both are in this for the long haul and will do This! Take good care.

Hugs & Love,

Jill emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
