Just another day

Thursday, March 13, 2008

Okay, so I have been at this dieting thing now for about 5 mons. I know, I know that is a long time to keep starting and stopping something that is so beneficial to life. Well I think I had an ampiphony after taking some pictures of myself the other day that really disgust me. I can't do this eat a little here, workout there, and then think I am suppose to see some results. Don't get me wrong, I have learned so much from being on SP and I love the people. But it is only so much one can be taught before you have to step up and do it on your own.

So I took the pics, cried a little, felt sorry for myself, got comfort and compliments from my fiancé, and told myself to suck it up and just get it done. I changed my goal weight and goal date to something a little more realistic; and I also changed my daily cardio minutes. I have all the knowledge you can think of when it comes to weight loss and you would think this stuff should be a breeze. Nope, um um it isn't happening. So my new thing is to take it one day and one step at a time. Also, I'm learning to just do it, get it over with, and then forget about it. There are so many other things that I SHOULD be doing than worrying about "dieting". I learning how to sew-my sister calls me the "Black Martha Stewart", I am still putting together my model cars and the ones we drive, and most importantly I have my babies to teach everything I know and then some.

I know I am an awesome person and sometimes I still wonder what GOD has planned for me. But then I stop and think that maybe THIS is his plan, just live my life according to him and get prepared for when he wants me at my REAL home. I can and I will do this for me first, my babies and my soul mate, for a healthy life, and strength.

    1st off I want to say that you are a phenomenal woman!! You can do all things through christ who strengthens us!!! have you truly taken this problem to him and laid it at his feet and said here it is God I can't do it NE more and I need you to fix this?? Girl I had too!! Since then I have been able to find my motivation and determination. A month ago I was just like you working out here and there eating right today, but tomorrow eating what I wanted. Then I just got discouraged and like you said have all the knowledge of what i need to be doing to lose weight but NO! NO motivation!

    I have 3 babies and I want to be around for them but i have had high B/P since 4ever and even knowing all of this you would think that this would light some fire under my butt. It did but 2 a certain extent!! It was after I prayed, cried, complained, felt sorry for myself and then just let God be who is and let him take me on this journey! Since getting to the point you are at, I found my determination!! Since March 1st I have been working out daily and eating right and I give all thanks to himb/c it wasn't til I gave it to him truly with no hesitations or but, and ifs in the mix did I see results!!! I am praying 4 you and I know that this is just a mountain for you climb and on the other side is your victory!! In a way you had to get 2 this point 2 really get your mind where it need s to be to see the results that you need. Keep your head up and stay encouraged! We got 2 be here 2 see our children grow!! Stay encouraged, Maria
