Where did they go?

Friday, January 08, 2010

Here I go again. Trying to lose this weight. Took 8 pounds off but that certainly was not enough for almost a year. I am going to really crack down on myself this year. Most of my clothes don't fit and Rick wants to take me to get new stuff. I keep telling him "No, as soon as I get this weight off, my clothes will fit me again." I don't think he believes me anymore.

And he wants me to wear long johns and more layers when we start riding the motorcycle in late March or early April and again in the fall. Heck, I can't even tuck in a thin t-shirt in my jeans now. I certainly can't tuck in layers!!

I have looked at myself in the mirror and I am embarrassed. How did I ever let myself get this bad?! Now is the time to do something. I don't feel good most of the time and I think it has a lot to do with the extra weight.

So, I am going to start eating at least twice a day. Drink more water. And get walking even if I have to go to the mall to do it in the winter. I belong to Anytime Fitness and I never even go there. What a waste of money every month. I had such high hopes when I started this journey. Where did they go?

    Connie, I agree with NervousWreckIAm when she said you just have to get your spark back. I know what you mean about getting discouraged. I've yo-yo'ed too many times to even tell without shame. But I always keep coming back and trying again. You do too. That's a good thing!!

    What helps me, is reading over other SP members success stories, and looking over old photos of me in my younger, thinner days. I also go back and read my own blogs, and former posts to try and help me remember why I started this diet in the first place.

    Here's a link that might help too:

    This might be hard to do but start thinking postive instead of negative. Like yourself just the way you are and then you will want to start exercising and eating healthy. You can do this!

    GOD BLESS!

    Hi Connie,
    I can so relate to how you are feeling right now. I have been there over and over and over again.
    The GM is amazing BUT we still can get off track, we are human after all :)
    So like Tracee5 said make today your day 1......I know that you can do it......we can do this together.
    I still have tons of weight to lose and I have gone off track a bit over Christmas BUT I am having a new day 1 as well on Monday.
    Good luck to you, start listening to your CD again if you haven't been listening to it, and get involved in the group again.
    Take Care, Jude :)

    You're doing lots better than me...I also lost 8 pounds, but I don't know what happened. I just stopped trying, and I had soon gained the eight back plus a little more! Wish I could have just kept off the eight I'd lost!

    I hear ya! I have trouble as well staying with it. So this year no weight goal just a consistency goal. I will exercise each day for 15 minutes. That is doable - Oh and once I start the 15 become 20 or 30 or 60 minutes. Also building consistency with logging my food...like i said this year isn't about the weight as I believe if I get the consistency under control I will lose weight.....you go girl you can do this!

    You have the right thought. I will be the first to tell you that this tracking thing is really helping! You can do this because you want it! I believe in you!

    Take the energy from wondering where it went and put it into making the lbs go! You can do this, YOU are so worth all the effort you put into losing the excess, and the riding will be so much more comfortable. Liz
