One Day at a Time

Wednesday, July 23, 2008

I find myself having a hard time living in today.

I've restarted my program after spending most of the year gaining emoticon weight.

So, what do I want to do? Calculate how soon I can be a weight I find acceptable. This is as crazy as living a lifestyle that has me gaining too much weight!

For today, after weighing in, I spent my 50 minutes on the eliptical (wanted off after 20 but stayed) and I've stayed with my food plan. I have a food plan for the rest of the day. I have acceptable snacks made.

The only thing I can do about "yesterday's" damage is not do anymore damage today and do what I can today to reverse the damage. Unfortunately I can't reverse it all in one day and no amount of planning is gonna make that happen.

One day at a time.

    Thank you for recommending the low carb websites. I completely understand about calculating when you should be a certain weight. I keep going back to the first time I tried low carb, which happened to be Atkins. I lost weight so fast, and it was so easy. Well, I am a lot older now, and I have 2 more kids then I did then, so if I am being honest with myself, I know I will not lose that fast again. It is just frustrating, when you finally make that decision to change, you want it all now!!!! But having that attitude almost guarantees failure. Anyways, thanks again!!

    Lisa, I know what you mean about calculating. Every time I get obsessive and start charting when I'll be at what weight, I blow it. Because it completely negates the concept of "one day at a time." I can only do the stuff today. So today I'm doing it. I'll wait to think about tomorrow's stuff tomorrow.

    I can do anything for one day!

    BLess you, you're baaaaaack -- today! Linda

    You should pat yourself on the back!!! Staying on the elliptical when you want to get off!! GREAT JOB!! And You can do anything you put your mind to. You are tottaly right, One day at a time!!! You cannot change yesterday Nor can you predict tomorrow. What you have is RIGHT now. Make yourself proud!!! So what you gained.. It is important that you are picking yourself right back up and moving forward. That is the key to success. Never give up and pick yourself up after you fall. We all fall. No one is perfect. But what you do after you fall makes you or breaks you!!! You can do this. Keep your head up!! And smile!!! emoticon
