not going to be an extreme person just gonna be me!

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

its hard sometimes reading all of the ways different people accomplish their goals and not getting caught up in comparing myself or feeling inadequate.i am proud of everyone who is able to accomplish their weight loss goals in whatever way that works for them! my brain gets jumble on the calorie cycling, low carb no carb exercising for 10 hours a week no soda no white bread etc etc etc. what i am doing for me is producing results and i am living in a way that i could live for the rest of my life!i need to resist the urge to be an extreme person and settle and be happy with the person that i am and the way i am accomplishing my own goals! i just had some cereal and i am not going to apologize for it! i stayed in my calorie range and even if i didnt so what!! i am relaxing more and more as time goes on into trusting in the process of what i am doing ...preparing and planning my meals 90% of the time and exercising regularly an amount of time and frequency that i feel good about. more than this i am not willing or desiring to do! as much as i love instant gratification i am going to refrain from comparing and shoulding myself to death. thats all :-)

    awesome blog! i came to this EXACT epiphany about a week ago... but you've put it much more eloquently. forgiving oneself for slip-ups and congratulating oneself for achievements is KEY!

    go girl!

    You nailed it. When maintaining a lifestyle becomes a chore, it is not a healthy lifestyle. Each of needs to find our balance and that is how we need to proceed. Thanks for the reminder to all! emoticon

    That's was achieving a healthy lifestyle is all about - getting to the point where diet and exercise are just easy, second-nature parts of your life. WTG!!!

    Love your blog! This is a great attitude to have regarding getting healthy b/c YOU are doing this for YOU and everyone is different. We all have different results and processes, but as long as we can be proud of our end result and we are truly happy, then that's all that matters. emoticon

    Sometimes all of that counting, calories, carbs, and NUMBERS everywhere is enough to drive anybody completely CRAZY! emoticon
