A Year Til 50

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Yesterday was my 49th birthday. I woke up with a fire in my heart that in a year, when I turn 50....I want to have changed my body.

I'm still stuck at 244.

I had weeks I was well on track. 244.
I had weeks I was so tired and stressed I ate what I wanted. 244
I skipped weighing all together for two weeks and after that? 244.

I look a little different - some measurements have shifted. But I'm still definitely morbidly obese and still physically miserable at this weight.

So, what to do differently? In no specific order, my thoughts on the subject:
1. Consistency. In what I eat, in what I do.
2. Track my food.
3. Replace other beverages with water. (I have reduced my diet coke consumption by about working on that last half)
4. Body weight exercises
5. Keep dogging that 10K steps a day - get to it, and stay there or increase it!
6. Work on stress levels

That's it for today. My last goal? To spark daily. Being on site keeps me motivated and focused.

    Can be so frustrating when the scale refuses to budge, no matter what you do. Good for you still trying things though. It will budge again soon, and in the right direction, I'm sure. :-)

    I agree that consistency is key. I like your plan. The only thing I would suggest that I didn't see would be to focus on eating few, if any, processed foods. Try to eat things you great-grandmother would recognize. That has been the key to me, after calorie counting. It's not glamourous, but it worked for me.

I turned 50 last October. After being in the high 200s and sometimes over 300 since late elementary school, I finally made it into the 100s and was there by the time I turned 50! You can do it!

  Being consistent is the key to success. Falling 'off' occasionally is okay, but don't let it stretch into more than one meal or snack. If you wake up every morning and say to yourself "I can do this today", then you will. Good luck, and never, never give up! emoticon
