You are doing awesome also, and keep up the good work. I know what it is like to give motivation, but sometimes motivaters need to continue to be encouraged too.

You can write as long as you want. That is why we are here. We all know about your journey and how hard it is, especially the emotional eating we all struggle with that. Hang in there and do not give up. I don't see nothing wrong with every now and then having a sweet treat but with moderation that way you do no feel deprived and crave it more. Working 2-3 jobs plus school is a tough schedule and a I appreciate you still come here when you can to check in. You will do great just take it one day at a time.

Long-term Goal: To overcome my hesitation and stay focused long enough no matter what happens in my life.

Medium-Term Goal: Reaching my goal 5% at a time.

Short-Term Goal:
*Drink my water daily
*30 min Exercise (and work my way up) 4 times/wk

The past couple of weeks have been very difficult for me. Not that I have been doing bad with my eating or exercising; I've actually been doing very well with that. I have just been stressed because this is finals week for me at school emoticon and I have been having some emotional situations going on.

Like I said, this is finals week for me and I also am premenstrual. All though I do not bleed I still get the symptoms of PMS (which I need to go to the doctor for that) emoticon . So far I am all most at my 10 pound mark and for some reason because of water weight I gained 2 pounds and have been eating healthy and working out. My friends of course tell me that muscle weighs more then fat and it may be that, but it will seem at times like I am gain weight back but I am not.

I am trying not to panic and it has been very hard for me to come on here everyday to post weight and all of that. I also have been having problems with my wrists because I take online classes. I am trying not to turn to emotional eating, and I have to say that I have been doing very good not falling back into that, and it does help that I have some weight watchers chocolate cake but, I am feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment.

Trying to stay strong in this is hard and I really don't know what to do. I am so use to motivating others and right now I must say that I am at a low. I will not give in to the temptation of emotional eating only because I know that it only leaves me feeling worse then before emoticon . After I complete my final I should be able to get on here and post progress at least two to three times a week because I am also working two jobs and another off and on which means that I am working three jobs. Sorry this is so long I just needed to vent and be accountable. emoticon

I completely hear the insanity...especially after the past few days. I got it back together today after completely splurging on Monday and Tuesday. I feel much better. I am now watching The Biggest Loser which I DVR'd and couldn't watch last night because of work... It is so motivating. I can't wait to start working out to Jillian Michaels' DVDs.

Be happy for this moment...this moment is your life!

I took it down a notch on the exercise, but not quitting. I went ahead a took my measurements this morning since I assumed there would be no change and did not have time on Sunday to tend to it..and was so happy to see, even if the weight did not change...I lost 1 inch around the waste and 1.5 around the hips..so the walking is helping.
Kudos to walking!

My plan is to "never quit."
I believe that failure to plan is a plan to fail. God is able to do all that He calls us to do. He asks us politely to treat ourselves well. The least we can do is respond and use all that He provides to help us to do just that.

Well you are so right about the Insanity of it all.
My goal is to try to do different exercises to keep the body guessing!

The other is to stop dieting and finally get the weight off and keep it off!

MY NEW saying: (borrowed from Delila)

"If you want to do something, you'll find a way, if you don't, you'll find an excuse."

“INSANITY IS EXPECTING CHANGE BUT CONTINUING TO DO THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AGAIN”

There are some of us that have medical reasons keeping us from doing more than what we are doing and some of us still push ourselves through it. The truth is that until we really really try and commit 100% and even kick it up a notch and go way and beyond our limits, we will never discover the hidden magic we possess inside. What are we afraid of? Being healthier, stronger, better, happier, sexier, and prettier? Are we afraid of work, sweat, tears, aches and pains? This journey is not easy does that mean I should give up at the thought of working to get there? NO!!! It means that I keep moving forward, I keep working hard at it every chance I get, I stop making excuses to get out of doing what I know needs to be done, No bull crap, No looking back, No Doubting myself. I will fight for what I want because I deserve the final outcome. It is a daily battle but if we do not stand up for what we want we will never see change.


Long-term Goal: To overcome my hesitation and stay focused long enough no matter what happens in my life.

Medium-Term Goal: Reaching my goal 5% at a time.
