5 Things I did RIGHT in my first week

Friday, July 04, 2014

I've not wanted to really get to this point, to be so open and vulnerable about my weight loss journey because as of writing I'm just beginning it - again. I've been gearing up for a change and to write about it means it's kinda real, which really means I'm allowing myself to be accountable.

How can I make this interesting for any perspective reader? To be honest I don't think anyone will be reading this, and I kind of like it that way, there are so many bloggers that it wouldn't surprise me if this is the case. I want to keep a record of my journey, I'd love to think it'll become an inspiration for someone else as other blogs have been for me.

So I stepped on the scales a week ago - I loathed to do so as I knew I'd gained weight recently as I felt the effects of it, not to mention my clothes were more fitting than I'd like them to be. I weighed in at 112kg/246lbs

A few days have passed since I wrote the above. I've found SparkPeople so thought I'd start blogging what I'm going through. This week I've begun to move, in fact I joined a gym for the 4 months I'm in town housesitting.

My achievements this week have been:

> I started moving - I meet a neighbour who was a personal trainer and she suggested a few work out activities with her and her girlfriend who's wanting to loose baby weight - well it look 3 days for my legs to recover! But got me started. I also attended the gym twice, walking the treadmill and enjoyed the aqua fitness class.

> I attended a meeting called Authentic Weight Loss & Health For Life - a support group in a coaching format that helps us understand our thoughts behind the health issue. Fantastic timing to say the least!

> Eaten plant-based food for a good part of the week - body loves me for it - can almost hear it purrrr

> I blew it on days 2 and 3 yet got-back-on-the-horse by being inspired to replaced the habit by doing something new - WOW - it worked! I recall some positive, kind self talking and inspiration from God to try something new in the moment. It was also OK to remember I'm new at this and therefore a little wobbly on my legs of choosing well.

> The biggest change I've noticed is in the area of my mind - something is moving up there. I really want to be kind to myself and to change my thinking - this will be an interesting process.

    Thanks :) actually I don't drink sodas/carbonated beverages or coffee/tea 98% of the year - only water - so got that going for me :)
