"I Will Be Good Tomorrow"

Friday, April 10, 2009

I have lost 4 lbs. since January. However, this has only brought me to the place I was before the holidays (206.5). I sat on my plateau again for a while, but now the scale goes up and down. I know the cause and have the power to stop it. I am taking my goals too lightly on the day to day. I tell myself, “I will be good tomorrow.”

    Congrats on the 4lbs! Thats further along than you were before January!

    I have been there too with my goals, (more often than I care to count!) ; its such a frustrating place to be in!

    I agree with EMM, one day at a time! You can do it!
    Is there any correlation on the time of day, activities, mood or foods that cause you to stray from your goals? For me, its night time after my kids have gone to bed and I find myself thinking...oh, I've been good all day, I can have XYZ. Or now with Easter here...oh, a handful of jelly beans won't amount to much (ha!).

    One thing that is helping me is simply tracking my folate - I try to make sure I get enough each day ... which forces me to eat a lot of green things (spinach, romaine, broccoli...those are about the only folate-rich foods I like). Anyway, thats just a little trick I am doing to help myself along.

    I have also thought of making my accomplishments and rewards just how I do for my boys - sticker reward charts for things done well (drinking water, etc.). They get a sticker for brushing their teeth, and when they have filled up a chart, they get to go to Chuck E Cheese. I like SPs motivators, but man, that sticker chart hanging on fridge is a great constant motivation.

    Make each day count!

    I have a ring that I wear every single day that says "ONE DAY AT A TIME"

    Dont' say you'll be good tomorrow! Be good today!! Congratulations on your 4 lbs so far. Just keep on with sparkpeople, calorie counts, and some exercise!

    Best Wishes!
