11 pounds away from goal-now I just need more exericise

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I honestly don't know how but I am getting close to goal weight. I think it has probably been due to stress. Typically when I am stressed I eat TONS of candy and junk food, but for some reason over the last 4 stressful months I have just not been craving junk food as much. Who knows, but I am not going to question it. The only issue is that I still don't want to exercise but I know I need to get muscle tone back. My physical therapist has suggested pilates, so I am hoping to get motivated in the next couple of weeks. I am sure my weight will go up which is fine because I would rather be tone again. I want my old body :)...... slowly but surely. I will say that it was kind of nice to get rid of my "fat jeans" that I had purchased when I was in the 150's so that I could not have to wear the same clothes over and over. But it was no fun to put out the money for the new pairs.

Okay, I am rambling. I haven't been on in a while so maybe that is the reason. Every time I try to stay consistent on sparkpeople I tend to flake, BUT the kicker is that everyone here and the site are always in the back of my mind and I think that is what keeps me going.

To those who might read this... I am wishing you well.

    Hi Sol! Wow! You are making such progress! Way to go girl! I'm so proud of you! I'm not allowed to diet currently so my scale is way where I don't want it to be, but I'll get there sometime. I'm glad you enjoyed Bleak House. I justed put it on my Netflix queue to watch this week. Hope your stress level is finally leveling off! I know what you mean about flaking off on this site. I do the same thing. I'm mostly on Facebook now. But I love all my buds here so I have to keep checking in on you all! Have a great day! Carrie :)

    Hi Olivia,

    Well talk to me in the next few weeks and see if I feel the same way :) I actually think that the last 10 or so pounds to one's goal are just naturally a little harder. This has been the most interesting experience I have had with loosing weight. Usually I have lost weight by consistent exercise (which is the best way to go) but this time (hopefully the last by the way :) my eating just changed. So when (hopefully soon) I start getting the exercise in again I will probably pay less attention to my weight and just focus on how I feel and how I look in my clothes. I think (a revelation I just had while typing this) that maybe people should put away their scales during those last 10 pounds and trust themselves since the pattern of good health has been set and then not focus so much on the numbers, but the feel. Wow, that was a mouth full.

    Anyway, I am also think we will both reach our goals and I am wishing you the best with it.

    Take care,

    I don't know about you, but the closer I get to my goal the harder it is! Actually, it looks like the goal is pulling away from me. Personally I think the cold weather has me in a funk, not wanting to exercise. And, dealing with a head cold isn't making it any easier either. Not to worry, I'm sure we'll both be reaching our goals within a couple of months. Good luck to you!
