The elevator to success is out of order--

Sunday, August 22, 2010

You going to have to use the stairs----one step at a time step at a time....

This is my status today and it fits me so well...I've been trying to get my eating under control. Trying to stay with in my calorie range. and I've been 50-50...for the past week and a half..some would say that is a failure, I look at it like a success. Before; those other days would have been over also, and the over days would have been WAY over. So I'm getting there.

I weighted in today and did not loose any lbs. am I discouraged NOPE...why because I know I'm making better choices. I haven't added any exercise, I'm just working on food and water right now. However with school starting tomorrow I plan on joining the fitness center at our hospital next door to the school. I KNOW I will see results then.

This last week has really showed me just what I was eating before. I see now why all my weight came back. and I realize that I'm gong to have to be one of those people who are constantly aware of portion size and what is being eaten.

A plus to this week is that I have ordered new and different food at restaurants. before I would go for the old staples...now I'm excited to try new things...

So each choice is a stair I take to the floor of my success. There is no elevator...It is all up to me and my choices.

    I like your attitude. It take some people to acquire your thought processes. It has taken be a while to learn not to beat myself up. I have been at this for 9 months. I have had my share of disappointments and weight plateaus to deal with. I have learned that keeping positive and consistent works out. If I stand still I am going backwards. Your climbing stairs is a great analogy.
    Keep up the good journey.

    You're right, every choice we make takes us up or down that staircase towards a healthier lifestyle. I think you'll find out soon enough that healthier choices do become more of a habit the more you do them. Good job, keep up the good work!
