I'm looking forward to the day when I can retire some of these worn out clothes and slip into ones that I haven't worn in awhile. I know that it is often recommended to get rid of any clothes that don't fit, as sometimes having them around just causes you to beat yourself up because you used to wear them but let yourself eat your way out of them. But as a short person, I have difficulty finding clothes that fit properly in the first place AND aren't too short, too low, too tight (why do manufacturers think that people my size want to wear clothes made of spandex that will cling to and display every bulge?). So I keep them, and when I can wear them again, I will decide whether they look good, out of date, or if I even like them anymore. Hard to make that decision when I can't even get them on. But I WILL!!

I am about 20 pounds lighter than I was this time last year. Though I wish it was more, I'm still happy with that progress. And I plan on continuing and doing whatever is necessary to keep progressing, even if it is slower than I'd like. I've spent way too much time being this heavy. No more.

If it's to be, it's up to ME.

I like "if you bite it, write it". I too keep my nutrition tracker private. Better to do that and be honest with myself than to have it public and not put in the things I wouldn't want anyone to see. I'm still not eating enough fruits and vegetables, and having trouble getting enough protein without going over on fats, though I am getting better about protein.

VICKI - I'm glad you are able to stay on track without relying on the scale. I wish I didn't have to. I do weigh myself every day. But I don't worry if the scale is up a pound from one day to the next. It usually means I had too much sodium or else I'm retaining water. With perimenopause messing up my metabolism, I find I need to walk at least an hour a day in order to get the scale to budge. I see progress on the scale quicker than progress in inches, so in order to not get so discouraged, I only measure myself once a month. I have noticed that my clothes are fitting looser, and a dress I couldn't zip up all the way last year now fits. I was really hoping that it wouldn't - in other words that I would have lost enough so that it would be too BIG instead - but progress is progress.

If it's to be, it's up to ME.

For me, the biggest change is that I no longer will use the scale to measure my progress. It undermines how I feel about myself, so unless I see a doctor and have to be weighed there, I won't step on a scale again. I will use a tape measurer once a month to see what progress if any I'm making.
Food wise, I'm counting calories and doing my best to stay under 1400 grams a day.
In the past I did low carb but since marriage, it's impossible to stick to the plan without a LOT of aggrivation. Hubby loves his junk foods and it's hard for me to stay away from them if they're in the house. So I'm working to have healthier snacks for me so his aren't so tempting.
I'm making sure I do something active outdoors each day for at least 30 minutes and I make sure to drink at least 9 glasses of water daily.

I lost track for a while there, hon!

Re a motto: quite a while back I read "If you bite it, write it!" Simple reminder, but it generally works for me.

I find I'm more honest (!) on the nutrition tracker when I don't have it on public view. Going public somehow makes me feel as tho I'm being judged (doesn't matter how accurate my skewed perception is, lol) and before long, I find myself fudging the stats here and there, while coming up with spurious reasons to justify my blurring of the numbers. Eh. Life's too short. So I keep it to myself, write down EVERY little thing, and then have a good idea what I want to change, what's working, what's not.

The other adage I keep in mind is one I posted on this thread, oh, way early on: "Be ever vigilant." That came from a SparkFriend, MARENAMOO, who used to say it kept her on the right track. I often remind myself of it, not just when it comes to eating, but for lots of things, as a nudge toward moderation.

I have another "motto", or at least a fun saying, that I think applies to me. Have a Dorry (from the "finding nemo" movie) shirt that says "I let my mind wander and it never came back!" Lately that seems so true for me.

If it's to be, it's up to ME.

Sometimes the thing that helps me the most with cravings is I don't want to have to enter those things in my food logs. If I am to succeed, I have to be honest with myself and put in everything. Tasting while cooking isn't my downfall, fortunately. I do taste my food while cooking, to make sure I have seasoned it right, but it doesn't add lots of calories. It's usually the mid afternoon slump when I find myself searching for the empty calorie junk. Not having it in the house is one of the best things. Realizing I'm not hungry at these times also helps me to physically walk away from temptation. I try to do something else to get my mind off it, even if it means going outside for awhile.
I feel like I should have a big sign taped to my fridge, cupboards, pantry which says "Are you REALLY hungry, or is there another reason?" Maybe this will help stop me in my tracks.

Another motto I may have to adopt is "If your food log was posted where everyone could read it, would you want them knowing you ate this?"

Do you have any motto that helps you stay on track, KASEYCOFF?

If it's to be, it's up to ME.

As long as I stay out of the kitchen (talk about torn two ways, lol) I'm usually okay, but I read a tip the other day to help stop the (in my case, endless!) noshing when you're fixing a meal - the idea is to chew a strong-flavored sugarfree gum, such as a very strong mint, while you cook so you aren't tempted to eat as you go since the gum makes everything taste weird. So I have a box of unopened sugarfree triple-peppermint gum out in the kitchen drawer. I'm still noshing when I cook, y'unnerstand, but at least I bought it and I'm getting closer, lol...

Sorry, sidetracked myself there. My point is, do you think something like that might help you get past cravings?

Even snackfoods like dried fruit and nuts aren't a good solution, at least not for me. While they may be better for you than things like potato chips or candy, they still pack on the pounds. I love Brazil nuts, and a large one has between 25-30 calories. One Brazil nut? Who stops at ONE?!? I'm also crazy about dates; I discovered them late in life, and I would happily add them to just about everything (oatmeal! rice! dry cereals! tagines!), but they wreak havoc with the ol' blood sugar. *sigh*

Anything chocolate usually works for me. But it's something I know I need to avoid, as it really doesn't agree with me. Haven't found a good substitute, though someone suggested that chewing on prunes satisfied them almost as much as a candy bar, and did a lot less damage to their eating plans. I do like prunes, and since I know what will happen if I eat too many, am able to control the amount I eat.
Right now my goal is to help the skinny person inside of me find her way to the outside. Walks and working in my garden and flower beds are something I enjoy and help me when temptations start getting out of hand.

I do like "I'm not losing weight. I'm getting rid of it! I have no intentions of finding it again!"

If it's to be, it's up to ME.

I like that!
I also like "definition of insanity: doing the same thing but expecting different results". I've finally STOPPED doing the same thing, and am finally starting to see the results I've been hoping for, though it is so much slower than I had hoped for. I still need to make more changes, but at least it's a start.

Mine is "Never give up."

The first step in getting somewhere is by deciding not to stay where you're at.

I can see already this is going to be such a good thread. I never thought about defeat being temporary, but giving up permanent. I have always used: You haven't failed, unless you quit. I think that is on the same line.

And to keep the weight loss going and to keep it off, I love her statement: Be ever vigilant. I wouldn't be in this position if I had of used it before.

The one I've been using lately I also got from Marenamoo: Be ever vigilant.

"Don't live to eat; rather, eat to live." I think this has its origins in Socrates.

I try to think of food as fuel rather than for taste, and for that reason lots of people are better cooks than I am. I'm ok with that.

Yesterday I read ANDI571's Blog "Age 70, 80, or 90 and walking fine" (sort of reminds me of the description of our Team). In it she talked about a Phrase that I have heard since before I began this Journey~~'Nothing tastes as good as thin feels'.
emoticonWell I have never been Thin, so I wasn't sure what that would feel like. I was not at all sure ANYTHING could "Feel" better than things like Pizza, Fried Chicken, and Fried Okra tasted.
emoticonBut Andi rephrased it to say "Nothing tastes as good as HEALTHY feels" and that was like a Light Bulb went on over my head! That is what I have been trying to explain to people for MONTHS, but I just didn't have the words.
emoticonThen MARENAMOO suggested that we create a Thread to share our Personal Mantras. We can draw strength and inspiration from each other whenever our Motivation is low.
emoticonNow you know what my new mantra is. What about you? What is your Mantra that keeps you motivated and focused on this Journey?
