Negative Self Talk is some *ish

Friday, December 12, 2008

I have been having an extremely difficult week...just alot of negative self talk and feeling like maybe I should follow through with gastric bypass surgery... BUT I am feeling much better after coming online and reading comments and post from the spark community. I know what where I am struggling which is the eating and I know that I have the power to change my habits so know I just need to follow through. The biggest problem is being lazy and not wanting to cook my dinners. I work at a hospiatl during the day and a group home at night. I decided to bring lean cusines to the group home in the event the meal that is made doesn't fit with my diet. Also decided that I need to wake up in the mornings and workout as opposed to working out at night. I think my days go much better when I get up early and work out, so that is what I am going to do. In 2006 when I first started getting serious about weightloss; I eliminated diet soda and any calorie drink from my diet and I need to do that again...even alcohol. I used to get up and have a yogurt then hit the gym for 60-90minutes, come home, eat breakfast, pack a lunch, shower and then go to work. I had a lot of energy and a lot of time to myself when I got out of work. My problem isn't motivation right now...I am motivated. My problem is planning my meals. Failing to plan is planning to fail as long as I remember that I should be fine. So this weeks challange will be to create a meal plan for the entire week and follow it. I don't plan to make anything too exotic; just a basic plan of foods I can eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. All whole/clean foods. I CAN DO THIS! Class reunion is in June 2009 and I want jaws to drop when I walk through the door...especially my jaw:)

    As I sit and read this it hurts...class reunion is on Friday and I haven't lost the weight. I am still going with my head held high! Losing weight is bigger than a class reunion or a wedding or a bikini vacation. Its about dealing with an addiction...an addiction to food is no better than an addiction to alcohol or cocaine. I am an addict and I admit defeat. I can no longer make excuses. Its time to get in action and prove to MYSELF how fierce I am!

    I'm with ya on the morning workouts. It's an upward battle and you're learning what's working for you. Just keep make the plans and I'm sure you'll be working the plan real soon

    I really like the comment "failing to plan is planning to fail". I am in the same boat. You sound like you have a plan. So here's to sticking with it.
    Thank you for sharing.
