Being Held Accountable For Gaining

Thursday, May 16, 2013

Seems as though I have these periods in my life where I lose weight then gain some back. My main reason for getting off track all the time is the pain that I deal with on a daily bases. I know from experience that I do feel better when I do get exercise in. Whether its just walking , riding my horse, or just a casual walk. Why is it that I do this?

My work place has this Biggest Loser Contest Contest going on. We had the results yesterday from the previous 12 week program. I didn't win and didn't expect to. The first 4 weeks I did lose weight. Did good at tracking, exercise and calories. Some how I got off track. Regained about 4 pounds of it.

Now we are in a maintain mode for another 12 weeks. So I am holding myself accountable for my now weight and also to keep losing. With the new rule in place= If you gain 3 pounds in a weekly weigh in you are out of the contest. So this is giving me accountability to not gain any more weight. From here on out it is down hill!!! I plan on working real hard at getting past my pain and doing some form of exercise each day. Even just ten minutes.

    Ten minutes is a great way to start your day!
To help keep me on track, I like to do a weekly "reset" where I will write out my goals for the coming week. If I feel like I'm losing interest or veering off track, I change up my goals or throw something silly in there to change it up, keep things interesting.

  I gain and loss at the drop of a hat . I am firm in my feeling and want to lose weight but at times find myself hopelessly lost . is it motivation ? I don't know but I know I have to keep on trying or I am done . and I don't want that . I know if I don't do better I will die . fact . plain and true . I have to do this . no excuses .

    Sounds like a plan - the only thing that consistently works for me is to be strict with my tracking and to not put anything into my mouth unless I have weighed or measure it first and then put in on my tracker. Best wishes!
