Got my "I've lost 150lbs" badge back!

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Really happy to have RE-earned this.

I haven't been back here for such a long time, every time I got close I would do this crazy self-sabotage thing.

What is it with us for seeing an approaching milestone and just our brain flips and BAM pizza-cookies-FOOOOD!

I was close to messing up, but thankfully my new honesty policy (and asking for help policy) worked and I avoided the weekend monster.

So yes, here it is again.

    That is awesome! Just this week I have decided I had two choices. I can lay down in defeat. Or... I can work on losing these pounds, proving to myself I can do it!


Seriously, GREAT work! SO proud of you!!

    emoticon My status today goes well with this. I wrote "Told Wife “Inside me there’s a thin Marty struggling to get out.” Wife replied “Why doesn’t he come out?” I said “Fat Marty can sedate thin Marty with massive amounts of food!” "

    Weekends are always so very hard! We get into such a routine and then- BAM! We get smacked with the weekend. Our chance to undo all the good work we've done all week long. I fully understand that battle!
Congratulations on getting your badge back and winning that battle!
Keep up the good work!

    Your such an inspiration for me.. I have worked hard for 6monthes and have done well thus far..

To see your massive impressive weight loss of 150lbs or nearly 11 stone is incredible.

My total aim would be maximum of 11stone or 154lbs, of which ive lost 109lbs.

So now reading some of your blogs and struggles you go through help me try me best no to repeat.. I have had a weekend of being a greedy fat pig if being totally honest.. I then felt guilty and worked very hard for many many hours to try and counteract the calorie intake.

So 45lbs to go and i am really going to need to keep reading amazxing stories like your own to make me believe i too can achieve such wonderful success.


Thanks for your updates and comments on my posts and page :-)
