Accountability Report 7-9-13

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Well, it hasnt been as good of progress as I wish I could report - but overall I am not too upset.

I started at 141 and weighed in last week at 134.8. Not spectacular but still a loss. I am making changes in my lifestyle (choosing healthier foods, exercising even when I have visitors over for the holidays, etc.) but I am really really nervous about vacation. I know that if I put my mind to it I will be able to get exercise in (especially walking around and sightseeing) but it is the food I am worried about. Germany is the heaven of good bread and beer... and my grandparents cooking - and that is like a recipe for yummyness/disaster!!! Plus we are spending about 3 days in New York City and the people we are staying with are like "we are going to sightsee, and eat food, and eat more food, and sightsee, and eat more food...." OMG...! Terrifying!

BUT - I just have to try and stick to my guns and make healthy choices.

I am so proud of my Slim Gyms team for sticking with everything. Each week I see a lot of people dropping out which is discouraging in a way, but there are so many people who are frequenting the forums, checking in, and keeping accountable which I absolutely love and appreciate. I couldnt do this without their support!

Need to drink more water and get more sleep (and replace energy drinks with water) but I just feel like with work, school, packing, wedding planning, etc. there is not enough time in the day to get things done!

Here's to making more healthy lifestyle changes in the next weeks of this challenge!!!

    I think you are making tremendous progress! We have to remember it's the little milestones that lead to the bigger ones. It may not seem like a large loss but any loss is something worth celebrating :) As long as you keep making healthy choices and don't let the bad outweigh the good you'll always succeed. :)

    Even if you don't see it I think what you have accomplished so far has been great! I believe in you and that you shouldn't be afraid of what will happen when you are on vacation or when you have family over. If your worry too much you aren't going to have a good time and when you think back about these visits you aren't going to remember all the good stuff you should. Remember to have fun and make everyday count without stressing out too much about what you are doing.

    You do a great job, and I am very happy that you are a captain. You are so good at reminding people of what they do well, and pushing them to succeed. As far as your goals go, you are doing a great job. Just remember, one day at a time, and every day is a new day. This isn't a race, it is a lifestyle.

    The progress you've made is phenomenal! 7 lbs in 5 weeks is nothing to disappointed by and is a very healthy loss! Be proud of yourself!

I know I've said it before, but you inspire me SO MUCH. Your determination and desire to succeed has helped the ENTIRE Slim Gyms team be pulled forward week after week. You're one of our leaders and I can't express enough how much it means to someone like me to have you lead by example.

Thank you for writing this post. You are much farther along your journey than I am and you're kind of like my own, personal end goal, haha! Seeing you try to stream-line your process is exactly where I want to find myself in a year: making active choices every day to improve myself.
