I have started writing down my goals. What I have established is this: current weight is 222 pounds--goal weight 120 pounds. My goal is to weigh 120 by 12/27/2016 -- that is a 1-1/2 years from now. I can do this. I am planning losing the weight in 10 pound increments, I will put $1 in a jar for each pound I lose -- and when I reach my goal weight and keep it off for 6 weeks (this is what Weight Watchers requires to become life time) I will purchase myself a present with the money I have saved.

more to come as I develop the ideas

I had a good laugh on #12. As for me I will keep my mind fixed on the Lord and his words. Along with the distraction list.

same this this

Mind over Matter
You can change your life by changing your mind. Any lingering sense of inferiority or inadequacy will interfere with the attainment of your goals and dreams, while self confidence and a positive attitude lead to success. To push your body toward perfection, your mind has got to be strong and focused. It is imperative that you hone and train your mind as intensely as you train your body. This means following a few guidelines and performing some mental exercises to replace self-defeating behaviors with positive ones, and to remove distractions and bring mental clarity and self-control. After all, itís your mind that directs and drives everything you do, or donít doóso get it on your side!!
The technique of visualization uses thoughts and imagination to bring about major life changes. Itís simple: Picture in your mind the object of your desire (whether itís a situation, an event, or an image of yourself) as vividly as possible. Spend time concentrating on the image of wish fulfillment, truly believing in it as if it were already real. Be detailed and comprehensive, and be sure to include your emotional well-being in this vision as well.
The reason visualization works is that your brain canít tell the difference between a real event and an imagined one; so by using your imagination, you can create positive experiences that improve your self-image and your skills, help you release worry, realize your goals, and so onóthe possibilities are endless.

You can now create an image of your body that fits your genetic type and potential. It must be a vision that you can believe, not one that will be out of reach.

I printed this out -- a friend of mine gave me this a long time ago -- I am reading this every day now. Started yesterday

Twelve Points On Attitude
1. It is your attitude at the beginning of a task more than anything else that will determine your success or failure.
2. It is your attitude towards life that will determine life's attitude towards you. Despite many people's belief to the contrary, life plays no favorites.
3. You control your attitude. If you are negative it is because you have decided to be negative and not because of other people or circumstances.
4. Act as if you have a good attitude. Remember actions trigger feelings just as feelings trigger actions.
5. Before a person can achieve the kind of results he wants, he must first become that person. He must then think, walk, talk, act and conduct himself in all of his affairs, as would the person he wishes to become.
6. Treat everybody as the most important person in the world.
7. Attitudes are based on assumptions. In order to change attitudes one must first change one's assumptions.
8. Develop the attitude that there are more reasons why you should succeed than reasons why you should fail.
9. When you are faced with a problem, adopt the attitude that you can and will solve it.
10. We become what we think about. Control your thoughts and you will control your life.
11. Radiate the attitude of confidence, of well being, of a person who knows where he is going. You will then find good things happening to you right away.
12. In order to develop a good attitude, take charge first thing in the morning. Do you say, "Good morning, Lord" or "Good Lord, morning?"
Read these twelve points every day for the next thirty days
and see how your life changes.

you are so correct -- I am still on Spark people. I still make it to my gym 6 days a week -- I wake up at 4:00 am (yes that is 4 in the morning) and I am at the gym by 5:30 in the morning (yes you are reading that correctly) and I exercise 40 minutes a day, six days a week.

Yesterday I started writing down on paper with pen my weight loss goals. I will finish that today and post them on my accountability journal

May be by breaking up the number it will not seem so far off. Just and idea... emoticon Hey my scale is down 3 pounds...Now lets see if I can keep going????? that is the test! ROFL.

gwynnie stop beating yourself up. You can do this!!! One day at a time is all we can do. My scale says I am down a pound or two down. Have you noticed that I have been at spark since 2006? emoticon It does not matter how long the journey is. What matters is that you Keep going. hey think about your former boss and office...wouldn't you love to see how they react if they saw you at weight goal? I often think of think of situations or things folks said to me that were not true and make them eat it when they see me now. I have lost weight and some have noticed it. Don't give up now. It is too bad that ww does not do more...they certainly get enough monies.

I exercised for 88 minutes. Don't make me get my mega emoticon

well yesterday went pretty good. I had a strong urge to eat extra after dinner but I did not. I had to keep reminding myself. Hubbie wants to go out and eat so I am hoping after dinner I will be ok. I do not like going out to eat usually but it is Fathers day and he want to go out. At least I do not have to cook in this heat. That is a good thing. Onward tomorrow.

I don't even know how much I weighed when I started losing weight. However, I know I was at 240 and that is what got me started on losing. However, I got down to about 202 and then I found myself out of work and started gaining the weight back.

I kept 1 pair of jeans only -- just to remind me. LIke those photos in magazines that you see of someone in a pair of jeans to demonstrate how much they have lost

oh wow. I gave all my bigger clothes away. So can not gain a hugh amount of weight. As far as my pictures of my bigger..the only one I look at is the one which I was in my moms wedding. I was beautiful- bigger but still beautiful. I have two of which I was at 205 I have them tucked away and I rarely look at them. Those were some harder times. With each pregnancy I gained weight. But with my first I weighted only 8 pounds more than I started after giving birth. Before giving birth I weighted 150. At my second I weighted 178, and at my last birth 205 was it. Now after graduating from high school I weighted 135. I'd be at a healthier weight at 145.

I know I can lose weight as well. I have photos of myself at a much heavier weight than I am now as proof. I have a pair of jeans that are a larger size in my closet as a reminder of what I used to weigh. I carry my fat photos with me in my purse to remind me what I used to look like.

me too. I know I can do this. But I have to have a higher power to help me out. After if I could do this on my own I would not be here. I can see by my scale sig that I can lose weight. I have to be patient with myself. I know that I will have stresses in my life. Exercise is easy unless I lose my mojo on both fronts exercise and food. I remember in the beginning exercise came as easy as breathing. But I have learned that if I ever stop both fronts suffer. I have already had my brunch. 2 egg whites with tomato,onions and olives. I love bread my down fall. emoticon So I have found a new bread for me with flax and sunflower (less salt) 10 grapes and an half orange. I am drinking green tea... which I love. I have to plan the rest of what I will have today. emoticon.

what you say is so true. I have been on sparks for 11 years now. But if anything, I have not given up. I exercise daily -- hubbie says that exercise is so beneficial even if you don't lose. I know I can do this. I always succeed at my goals

I have been here over 5 years so I am without excuse. Except I am full of them. ROFL but seriously It is time to reach my goals. I know I can do this. It is just a matter of staying focused. Life is full of distractions. I have got to learn to roll with the punches so to speak. God has never let me down nor my family. I have got to trust him more. Most of my stress comes from caring for my family and then the other comes from the bunk I have to deal with concerning my sons benefits etc. The enemy knows where to hit us....our families.

gwynnie I know I too could be at goal weight. I am a couple pounds away. I have a tendency to self sabotage I admit that. I do have stress because of my family situation. But if I were alone I still would be stressed. I have to learn to deal with it without food. Now that is the trick. Messed up today but there is always tomorrow. day 2. I will plan out my meals for tomorrow and substitute when needed.

I refuse to give up. I am so determined to lose this weight. I look back at my life and it is even hard for me to imagine where I was 10 years ago, 15 years ago, and 20 years ago. Now it is time to look to the future

sorry to hear about your issues. it is never easy --- I am working with some people who are supposed to be "experts" in helping disabled people with jobs --I have a brain injury. The woman I am working with is really very good. my food was not good last week but this week it is good

today was not good and I am dealing with a of stress today. My son guardianship meeting has been changed without notice until I got a letter in the mail. I was told that we would have to be bonded. What ever that means...I hope it does not mean tons of monies because we are not rich. The one-on-one back up person (my son oldest) will not be able to work with my younger son until state approves it. I dare not ask what is next? emoticon emoticon emoticon . this means food is easier and life is harder today. sighs.

I am really good with the exercise part -- although I love tracking exercise with your exercise journal. Let's hold accountable with food here.

I preplan all breakfast and lunches as that is easy--breakfast basically the same 3 breakfasts. Lunches are salads during the week.

I need to be accountable so I don't go over my calorie range. I do myself in. I need someone to keep me in line

that would be good. Should we check on each other here of make another post. ROFL. Between the two of us we already have two threads started. Yours here and mine for my exercise journal. emoticon . I will start. I am in the BLC. we had to make a meal plan for the week as part of the weeks challenge. I never make meal plans that far. So as a part of the challenge I told them that I would work on emotional eating and saboteurs. IE HUBBIE and chips. So far he has tempted me for 3 days with chips. I have not had any. (I am turning this into a 21 day personal challenge for myself. Now following my meal plan for a couple days have always been tricky. Breakfast is easy to follow and some snack are, lunch is easier to follow (unless I get side tracked) but dinner is the hardest to follow. Some times I am not hungry at night...If I plan on eating very light I get hunger afterwards...Then over eat or eat well into the late night. Exercise is so much easier for me. Water is not a problem as it is hot as fire here. emoticon want this.

perhaps what I need to do is the workbook again. What I know I need is someone to hold me accountable for what I do. I usually plan out what I am going to eat for the day -- but I usually wind up eating more than what I planned

Gwynne I am only revisiting certain chapters that I need to. I wish I could rejoin the team but it is not an option for me. I would join the emotional eaters team but they get too much emails. emoticon I revisited chapter 14... I think. I know planning my meals works well for me but I rebel against it and when i do I muck up. Today is planned out...I did change my breakfast to a smoothie as I was not in the mood for a hot cereal. It is too hot here hot anything. water and plenty of it. I also planned my workout for the day and have completed it. I never plan my exercise for the day. I only do what is convenient for me of what I feel like doing. emoticon I need to tighten up both areas. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have seen that show my 600 pound life. I kind of feel sorry for some of those people -- they have not addressed the issues they need to.

I have a friend here in Minnesota that goes to my gym. She said she used to be a WW leader and the people that would come to her meetings used to want to talk about their problems and why they got so heavy -- she said she could not take it -- she was not equipped to handle their emotional problems -- she is not a social worker. I know from my own personal experience my emotions got me to use food as a crutch--so I saw social workers who helped me with my problems

I hear you on not using food as a crutch. There is also a saying "Food is easy life is hard". I have to learn to fully lean on my faith in hard times. Food never helps or resolves the problem. I have seen a show on TLC called my 600 pound life or something like that. They always say food helps the problems go away but it does not. Some of these folks can not help themselves, can wash themselves, or walk. We are lucky because we can. We are stronger than we know. I am more than a conquer. My faith tell me so. Now it is time for me to start walking into what I know. I do stress over situation concerning my youngest son and family. The enemy uses this against me and I fall for it all the time. God has take3n of all us. He promises he would never leave me or forsake me. God can not lie. But I cam miss my mark and I have. Time to reboot. I will be bold and say this. I have nothing against ww but they do not address emotional eating. Sometimes you need to go deeper I know do. emoticon emoticon

I have lost weight. I have thought a lot about this. I am frustrated. I do not want meds to lose weight either. I don't want surgery to lose weight. Every person I know who has had surgery has gained weight back.

I will get this weight off. I am still over 200 pounds. after all these years on Sparks. I am only 5 ' tall. There is a saying " you need to eat to live not live to eat". so far I have been the other way around -- living to eat rather than eating to live. we need food to live but not use food as a crutch

One day at a time. I have hardly been at home and that has helped with not eating. Very busy this week. School is out.........................oh my will I have to be on my toes. Gwynnie did you see what you said? You lost weight. revisit what you did back then. Do you keep notes on what you do daily. dotting down what you eat, exercise, mood etc. helps. I can say I do it daily but a couple times a week. since I am an emotional eater I am trying to keep engaged with what is going on inside my head. emoticon fear, being let down, stress and anxiety can do a number on me if not careful.

To each his or her own. I rather lose naturally without meds. I hear too much and I have some health struggles. Being slim is not important. I think the word well is over rated. many a slim person have problems with health and other wise. I want to be at a healthy weight. I am nearing my goal. emoticon I am working on some jewelry for my outfit tomorrow for service.

i am sitting at home, reading and doing some writing. I just read part of someone else's blog about how she's lost about 220 pounds -- over 10 years. I have lost about 70 pounds total --20 in the past 8 years. I had lost more but gained some back.

Stopping by to read some of your blog. I don't go to the Beck Team much lately since I have been checking other teams I'm on.
I know it is frustrating not to lose the weight. I went to a Weight Loss Clinic and the doctor put me on Phentermine and I started with just 1/4th of a pill rather than the 1/2 he sad, because I'm 65, but it has helped. I'm down 17# from what I was and I'm on Day 84. That is slow, but that is okay, as I don't lose fast no matter what. I just take the pill in the afternoon so as I don't do night time eating. I'm never hungry during the morning. I know Sparks is TOTALLY and COMPLETELY against any and all weight loss medication, but this is working for me and so I don't care. I only had to spend $80 as it included the medication. I'm determined to be slim again.

the volunteer place did not get rid of me -- the one volunteer just complained about me because she felt I was arguing - -I was not arguing -- just making statement about how I felt about the topic we were talking about.

I left beck because I was not following her book at that point and I just didn't like any of the people on the board.

Why did you leave beck if I can ask? I know why I left. emoticon . I am sorry they let you go. If you really want to help there are plenty of places to volunteer. Do you have any other place in mind that is near to you?? You do find soiled and clothes with wholes in them when shopping at thrifts stores. If I give any thing away I make sure it is decent. If I would not wear it then I do not give it way for someone else to wear. That is tacky!! and nasty. I think you did right. They should have tossed it. I know you are tired of being heavy. Take it one day at a time. For me it is one step forward and two steps back at times. The Biggest loser Challenge is pushing me forward. I would have gained what little weight back if it were not for that. emoticon One day at a time is all we can do. You are not alone. emoticon Sorry but it is time to kick the house guest out. They are taking advantage of you both. After three days fish starts to smell. OPPPS! was that ugly? My mother always helped folk and they would stay at her house forever. She fed them and gave them a bed to sleep in. But me and my sissy hated it. We always had more work to do. She has been blessed because she had a giving heart. I do to to a point.... emoticon emoticon

I can't believe this. I volunteer at a local clothes closet and food shelf -- Wednesday mornings. Yesterday I showed up and one of the other volunteers pulled me aside to a private area and said another volunteer had complained about me last week. Person talking to me said that the other person said I had argued with her the week before. I apologized, but for the life of me, I did not remember what we had discussed that could have been taken as arguing. When I got home it hit me---we were sorting clothing in the back area, and I picked up a white blouse. this blouse was stained up and down the front and I was thinking about what I should do with it and the other person started to take it out of my hands to hang up to bring to the area where our "customers" "shop". I said no it was too stained. Just as we were talk ing about this, the other volunteer came back and I showed her this blouse and the 2nd volunteer agreed with me. 1st volunteer complained about this after I left.

yesterday I went to a networking meeting at the workforce center--they had a speaker that really gave me some inspiration. As she was talking, she was mentioning people's attitude -- and saying things like "some people will say I can't get a job because I am 50, or I am this or I am that". As I sat there the lightbulb went off in my head once again -- that I always achieve all my goals. I will get a job and I will lose this weight.

I am sick of being fat, i am sick of being unemployed and I need to change this around. How long have I been on spark people:????? w ell let's see, you had to pay for membership when I first joined --and I was living in an apartment about 3 miles from where I live now so that has to be 11 years ago. YOu'd think that in 11 years I'd have this (unmentionalble) wieght off by now but I don't. I am disgusted with that.

you keep moving as well. sometimes a group is very helpful -- that is why I still go to WW. It keeps me honest and accountable. today I was up .80 of a pound -- if I didn't go to my meetings each week I would be a lot heavier now
