The secret to weightloss...

Monday, April 14, 2008

is variety, or at least that's what they say. For me the secret to weightloss is quite the opposite. Give me the same thing for breakfast and lunch every day! I'm starting to rely on my cauliflower and chicken wrap (it's a lot better than it sounds) which has 30+g protein and 220 calories. Fill up my bowl of Special K in the am! Give me my serving of cottage cheese when I get home from student teaching before I excercise! Is that strange? I once read a blog by a guy that lost 150lbs. He ate the same thing everyday! I thought, "How is that possible? I would get so sick of that!" Well, now I'm addicted to certain meal items! What do you take from that?
The secret to weightloss...for me is visualization. I need to see (in writing) the calories I ate, the minutes I exercised, the calendar on the door charting my progress. It motivates me. The mindset that I have entered is amazing. As I told a fellow sparker, Just do it! (Nike, how appropriate) Just do it! Why complain, slack off, eat crap, etc? Make the best of every situation and DO IT! I am not a weak person so why in the past have I been weak in food choices? I'm an accomplished, intelligent young woman; I have worked hard for what I have; I can also work hard at this! : ) You can too!!!

    Don’t say “I NEED to lose weight, I HAVE to lose weight, I’ve GOT to lose weight.”

    During quiet time say to yourself:

    I can’t wait to lose this fat.

    I want to lose this weight.

    I’m one-hundred percent committed to losing this weight.

    I know that sometimes I’m going to fail, BUT I know I will learn from the mistakes and go on, because it will be so enjoyable to live my life like this.

    I’ve decided to lose this weight. I will feel so much better, if I make this change. I can’t wait to transform my body, so I can wear pretty clothes, so I can feel more attractive. I want to feel stronger, healthier and more alive.

    I feel so excited to lose this weight.

    I’m 100% committed to becoming thin.

    I know if I commit to eating well and exercising, my body is going to transform and I’m going to feel better about myself. I’m going to feel more alive and I’m going to enjoy wearing pretty clothes. I’ll be more confident in social gatherings.
    I’m going to talk to myself with love about why this will be such a great change for me.
