Something that has been bugging me

Friday, October 25, 2013

Ok I really do not want to sound like a broken record and I know if I don't out this this it will only eat me or I will eat.. but first things first is I need to recognize the fact that I have been doing pretty darn good. I have been active, working out eating clean and posting on spark as much as I can I love my new fitness tracker it really does keep me motivated how can a little thing about the size of a silver dollar have so much impact on me is beyond me but I love seeing those lights glow and each day I always see how many I can get never a day have I seen any less then 9 most I have see all 12 light up and that was the happiest day of my life course too that was a day I did a 50 mile bike ride. LOL.. Ok here is what is bugging me.. drum roll please..... why oh why is this rest of my weight taking so sloowwwww to come off? I mean this is another plague I am losing inches I know that by clothes and that is great, I also look toner then before because of all the working out and sculpting I am doing but the pounds are still the same and I know, I know that it is just a number because if I was reading this blog I would be saying to the author..."the scale is not the do all end all" and that is the truth but... but... but.. well I guess I cannot come up with a but... but truth is I am frustrated and if I keep the frustration in then the food will follow.. so that is why I am here getting this off my chest.... but now it is time to let my self know that I have worked hard, I have gotten 100 lbs off my body yes I have 60 more to go but the 100lbs has stayed off yes I have gone up a few here and there but gone down and of course with the Holidays coming food is more prevalent then anything but it don't have to be that way that is for sure..I will get through the Holidays, I am not even going to worry about that right now.. the best thing for me is to keep doing what I am doing keep moving forward and never give up... and I can do this because I have the support and inspiration from everyone on spark..

Thank you for listening to me.. feeling better already..

    I think the best weight loss research I've read says that "slow and steady" loss (yes, .5 to 1 lb/week) is healthier and more "durable" in the long run. And, as DDORN says, what are your options? Go back to the old ways that allowed weight to accumulate? I suspect you don't want that. So, celebrate your successes, both on the scale and off.

That you're building a fitness habit with an effective motivator is GREAT (imagine if you didn't have that?) That you've lost and kept off 100 lbs means that you have changed habits, even though it's HARD to change habits. Those two things teach me that I can make the changes I need to make, too.

Thanks for leading the way, even when you don't feel like you're making progress. You are.

    That's awesome that you've achieved a 100 lb. weight loss. Sometimes the body really does need to "re-tool" and get used to what the new reality is then it's ready to move on with you!

Scales . . . just cranky, plain nasty, cranky1

NSV's . . . like your clothes being looser . . . definitely GOOD!

So, for the moment, forget about the danged cranky scale and keep on doing what you're doing and loving for those NSV's.

    I so understand!! I have lost 21 pounds and it just seems like week after week is one pound at a time!I have a long ways to go to hit my goal but I have got to the point where I celebrate each pound lost because it is sooooo much better than a pound gained!And I know I am losing it the right way where it will stay off this time!!! So keep up the great work and be so very proud of yourself for what you have accomplished so far!! emoticon

    Ugh, I hear you and have been there, still am...BUT: I always tell myself what choices do I have? Revert to my bad old ways? Not a chance! So I stay the course and try to look for ways to shake it up both in the food and exercise department.

You ARE more stubborn than your weight! :-)
