Starting over

Monday, June 16, 2008

Ever since I didn't meet my goal for Memorial Day I have been off-track. I really need to get it together b/c I have made other goals for myself and I need to reach those. I really need more support though, some of my friends and family have lost weight recently and it was so easy for them...they did not make losing weight their "whole life"...for me losing weight is on my mind 24/7. I cannot focus on anything other than losing weight...and b/c I am always thinking about losing weight I should have lost weight, nope!

I wish I knew what my problem was...it is obviously something mentally that is holding me back b/c I have lost weight before (in a healthy way) but why can't I do it now?

Today I am going to make myself start doing 30 Day Shred again, I did not see results on the scale but I did drop a pant size and I do feel stronger from using it...the weather is going to be bad today so I will have to skip my hike and go to the gym instead but at least I have other people to workout with at the gym (even though I don't know them). I am also going to try to go to the gym in the mornings again (before work) so that way, if I feel like I ate too much during the day I can go again after work so I have the opportunity for an extra workout...it may sound crazy but I like the idea.

    It is a mental thing. Do me a favor!

    STOP telling yourself that you need to "lose weight"
    STOP telling yourself that everyone that lost weight around you did it easier (Everyone is built different)

    Look in the mirror and think about who YOU are... you may see this girl who needs to lose some weight, but look deeper. That person inside, is hoping to come out, and its not because she's "prettier" or "thinner" it's because she's healthier and happier. Stop trying to lose weight, and GAIN a lifestyle. Don't get on a "diet" and don't "exercise" .... BE HEALTHY 100% for YOU!

    It seems as if though my friend is just melting away and not even trying very hard! I am exercising every day (atleast an hour), eat almost nothing and whereas I lost some centimetres even that has stopped now.
    So I made a little pledge to myself that instead of a weight/measure goal I am setting an exercise goal for myself. My cousin is getting married in August and before the wedding I will exercise for 40 hours.
    I hope you get back on track and here's to a healthy life!
