I have commitment Issues!

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

I have commitment issues when it comes to losing weight! I get all excited about trying to lose weight, and day dream of fitting into a size 9/10 pants or beautiful dress that makes me look good and then hit the ground running until I start losing breath and say.."Man this is for the birds, I need a good cheeseburger.". I end up quitting for one reason or another and then bam! The pounds or inches that I lost have come back and then some. For the moment when I am eating the way I want, how I want, seems glorious! Lets admit it you feel great while your eating that unhealthy meal and the guilt comes afterwards. That's when your pants don't fit, or you feel bloated, or your belly is sitting on your lap likes its supposed to be there. I need to stop this yoyo weight loss journey and stick to it. One thing is I get bored and that's when I def want to quit, or I get tired of trying to figure out whats healthy and whats not, or finding affordable recipes. If theses are excuses, then yes I have a lot of excuses, and yes I need to have a more positive attitude when it comes to weightloss. Change the mind setand hit the ground slowly.
Realizing I am my own worst enemy. My friends and family support me all the way its me that stops me.

    I can relate to this so well. I put my weight on when I was pregnant and it kept going up from there. I start out fine, then I figure I just can't do it. My kids try to cheer me on, and that helps out a lot.

    The food part isn't so much my problem, it's the exercise, because once I get out of breath I go and sit down. I'm trying to push myself, hopefully I can do this.

    One thing that works for me is walking outside. If your area is walking friendly, enjoy a nice evening walk while listening to music, or a nice early morning walk. It builds momentum and endurance. Stick to working out. 5 minutes of working out is better than none. So have that cheeseburger, but still do at least some working out. In time, you'll get to a place where you'll crave a salad instead of nuggets or whatnot.
