Dang...it really is all about ME

Wednesday, July 16, 2008


Alright, I've come to a very obvious yet hard to admit conclusion. My weight gain and inability to lose weight is all about me....

I want to lose weight so much, and yet here I am, constantly not working hard enough at it. It's not even a matter of me sabotaging myself for unknown reasons, it's just about me eating badly and not exercising enough.

It's so hurtful that I keep myself from attaining something that will make me so much happier. I don't have any physical limitations, special food allergies, or anything that TRULY keeps me from achieving my goals.

So, as weird as it sounds, I need to stop being so selfish and start giving more to myself, and that means dedicating time and effort to achieving some sort of progress in this horrible yet fascinating weight loss journey. It's about time that I actually take part in my life, and that I'm fully a part of it!!!

    Weight loss is one of those rare things that only you can be responsible for and take credit for. Right? No one can do it for you and when you are successful, give yourself a big, fat kiss cuz YOU did it and only YOU! No pressure or anything but, at the end of the day, you can only be accoutable to yourself and while that can seem like a heady dose of responsibility, it is totally worth it in the end.

    I know you can do this chica, I know it! ;-)

    If you haven't started tracking your food yet, start today!

    Write everything down. The tracker here is excellent. It helps you to know if you are eating enough or too much. It helps you balance your meals. It serves as a check to reign in my appetite.

    If you can't record things as you eat them, write them down somewhere else and then plug them in the computer in the evening.

    You may discover some really nice things. I was amazed at how few calories are in half a pineapple! OK, it has a significant number, but much fewer than I thought. There are 231 calories in a whole pineapple.

    THIS REALIZATION IS WHAT I CAME TOO THIS YEAR, I HAVE BEEN ABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME TO STICK TO THE JOURNEY, PLAN, WHAT EVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT. BUT REALIZING THAT NO ONE, NO SPECIAL DIET, PILL, NOTHING!! NOTHING WILL WORK UNTIL I GET SERIOUS ABOUT THIS THING, AND UNDERSTAND THAT MY BODY IS GOING THROUGH A NEW PROCESS, AND GAINING/LOSING/NOT LOSING, IS ALL PART OF THIS NEW CHANGE. I MUST TELL MYSELF EVERYDAY THAT IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN OVER NIGHT, IT'S LIKE I REALLY HAVE TO TELL MY SELF THIS EVERYDAY, IT'S INSANE, WHY CAN'T I GET THAT. emoticon
