im just not seeing it.

Thursday, June 20, 2013

So I when I see myself in the mirror I don't see what others see. Its like my eyes are covering what I don't want to see or something. But I don't feel fat and I feel yucky or anything. I feel good and fine with my body. the only time I feel like I need to do something is when I see myself in a recent pictures. There I can see what I need to do. other than that I feel like I look fine. Is this why trying to lose weight and get healthy is so hard for me? I cant seem to stick with it. Every one says that after awhile you just get used to eating healthy. well I ate healthy and exercised for 3 whole months and lost 25-30 pounds and I didn't stick on it. it didn't come natural to me... so what am I doing wrong. Do I need to post fat pictures all around my house to remind me or what? counting calories writing down what I eat and all that stuff isn't working either. I cant find my own groove to this and its getting annoying! inside I know what I have to do but on the outside I'm just not seeing it.

    I agree, try to find something that motivates you individually. Body size and shape aren't the only things to strive for. Would you like to be more physically active? More flexible? Have more endurance? Eat more fruits and veggies? Lower your blood pressure? etc. Pick something you'd like to improve and work on that.

    I like you don't always see myself fat. But when I am out and I don't fit in a seat at the game or I turn sideways and I'm still too large then I know! The healthy eating is a hard one, but for me at 50 I have to do it. It's been many years of bad eting habits that I am trying to relearn. Just this morning I was eating Cream of Wheat (ya I know) but I put a 1/2 tbsp of peanut butter in it and it was so good. Finding things that you like to eat may make this alot easier.
    I hope your hubby and baby eat what you eat. Teaching her good habits will help her in the long run.

    I don't think you need to post pictures places -- I'd recommend you find out what motivates you and work fitness and health into that.

    For me, I find that I need fun and excitement. So I simply planned things that were fun and exciting to me. Food is my nemesis, because I love it, but I found that I could seek to try new recipes of healthy foods for a while slowly incorporating the ones I really liked into the monthly rotations -- just pick a day you promise to try something new each week. over time, you'll migrate.

    Or perhaps you like to do a certain thing with your friends-- be it bowling or playing the wii -- find ways to make those into more fitness-esque things, and tell yourself it's okay to fall off the wagon now and again.

    Calorie counting works for some, but not all -- it's really about you. If you find what makes you tick, what makes you smile and laugh, what makes you happy -- that is where you want to focus and make a little change.

    Good luck!
