It has been a year.....and I'm in the same place

Thursday, April 18, 2013 surprise it's been a year and I'm still in the same place....granted, I'm only 4lbs heavier than I was a year ago.....guess it could be worse.

But....I'm turning 35 in 48 days......and I'm not okay with it....or the weight.

I'd like to lose at least this 19lbs by my bday so I'm under 300. Lord willing I can do it. I've got to get myself motivated and back on track. I'm going to the Dr. tomorrow b/c I'm convinced something is wrong or my thyroid is out of wack again.... I've been working out and completely changed my eating but I've got to get it together for real....for the long haul. Tracking my food has always been hard but I've got to try it again.

Wish me luck.....and send up some prayers.

    You can do it by building consistency day by day.
My prayers are with you on your journey to better health.

    Definitely sending prayers your way. You can do it and yes it is hard. I am 23 and it seems everytime I drop a little I gain a lot. Remember that this is not a quick fix and this quote: "I may not know how to lose 50 pounds but I know how to lose 1 pound 50 times." Also don't let the scale run your life and cause you to feel your journey isn't working. Take measurement, before and after pictures, and mix up your workout. I know you can do it! emoticon

    It sounds like your not putting yourself first. Tracking nutrition, portion control and exercise as far as I am concerned is the only way. Iwish you success. and now it's time to get serious. You are only 35. I never got started until 4 years ago and I am 66 now. I will never get back those unhealthy years. I wish you success.

    sending prayers your way..... I'm having a similar experience with the 200 mark.... some times life gets in the way which is whats been blocking me for 18 months. 35 is still quite young -- of course that's coming from someone 53 -- don't rush life or the weight change it's not good for you. Focus, track and don't cut your calories to low or you will have more trouble later. let me know if you need a shoulder. emoticon
