Plateau No More

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

I am going to visit my family in July for a week. I always find it difficult because I have to fly and the seats are so small and my stomach is so big... Need I say more. I got a good start with Spark but have been on a plateau since January. I have been eating chips and cookies but I always did that. it is just I must not be weighing them correctly or forgetting to put calories in.
I tried Curves but have come to believe I would be better off walking. I also want to have other things to do. the circuit training gets boring. Also I would have gone daily if there was something else to do.
I need to eat eight fruit and vegetable servings. Instead of chips I need to make a salad.
instead of cookies I need to eat a yogurt with fruit.
More and better exercises and better food choices.
I know what to do to change. I want to fit in that seat!
I want to entice myself into exercising more. I want to have the pants that are loose...
FALL OFF so I can fit in the size 16 pants sitting in my closit waiting for the chance to make me feel great.

    You have the right idea now. For sweets, I have been using yogurt, yogurt frozen bars, juice bars, fresh fruit etc. For salt, I eat baby carrots and other fresh veggies with a little bit of salad dressing. You have the right idea. NEVER bring junk foods into your home, because there is more chance of you eating them than the foods that will actually make you feel better and not want the junk food!

    Hi Maria! You are successful because you are constantly rethinking your strategies and planning new ways to keep yourself motivated. I did not hear any of the "Q" word (quit...hehe!) in your blog. In this journey that we all share, one of the keys is to intuitively know when our bodies need a change, whether the change is in our attitudes, our eating, or our exercise plans. You are doing that! Keep up the great work. I hope you get your wish with your loose clothing, and I hope your family is astonished at your weight loss when they see you this summer. Keep it going! You can do this!

    Hi Maria, when I was reading your blog I had a little laugh to myself.
    When my youngest son was very little, he would say I want. I want
    and i would say I want I want gets nothing, now he is older & if I say I want something he will say I want I want gets nothing. And it's true. its not I want, it is I will or I need to.
    However after all that waffle, you are doing good, keep gpoing & make it....... I will.!

    HI MARIA.Plug away and it'll come back....The main thing is POSITIVE THINKING. It helps tremendously. I'm convinced that we can put to much pressure on ourselves........Start on one thing, then add another. I find its easier for me that way. SMILE, we love ya !!! emoticon
