I can do this, I can do this, I can do this, I can do this!!!

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

I am feeling pretty low right now even though I have everything to be happy for. I have lost 38 pounds and I know what I have to do to get the rest of the 44 pounds to come off. So, why aren't I doing it? I really need some motivation. I am working out diligently but eating, well, not so great. I need to put myself first as a priority. I have been starting the day with healthy breakfasts and decent lunches but then I get snack-crazy in the afternoon. I am so happy and lucky to have such a wonderful family and network of friends and am extremely blessed to be a stay-at-home mom for my wonderful girls. I know I can do this, I KNOW I can. I just need to stop beating myself up and put one foot in front of the other and just do it. DEEP BREATH. Tomorrow I will plan a delicious and healthy lunch, snack and dinner for myself and my family and enjoy the journey of getting back on track again.

    I am a SAHM too! It can be very challenging sometimes. I have been exactly where you are, and I know it really pulls you down. BUT, I know you can do it!! Just take it one day, one meal, one bite at a time. I'm cheering for you!!

    Yes, you CAN do it! You have come so far! You are halfway to your goal already! Maybe change up your foods a little? Perhaps you're getting bored with your normal snacks and meals? I try to eat fruit as a snack twice a day to keep full. It's been working for me, and I've been trying lots of different new fruits as a result.
    Everyone needs kind of a reset period, I think. Time to take a break from the hardcore "diet" and just maintain for a bit. It's healthy. It helps your body adjust to the new lower weight so that it won't fight to hold onto those pounds.
    Keep at it. Slow and steady, girl. Just keep plugging away. You are going to get to your goal.

    Don't let the world or one bad day, one bad week get you down. You are well on your way to a brand new you. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon don't forget that because emoticon you go girl. When you feel like a snack try a few nuts and dry fruits and chew slowly. If the feeling doesn't go away, take your girls for a walk. emoticon
