Wednesday, October 06, 2010

Ok Spark Friends!! I am finding myself back in another funk again about my weight. I weighed this morning to find that I am at 180 lbs and I have not been this heavy since 2000 or 2001. This is getting out of control!!! My workouts have never been this nonexistent(yes I said it) nonexistent and I am at a loss to understand why. I use to love to workout, jog, sweat and endure rigorous workouts. Even if I come up with something, it just seems like an excuse!! I'm so not feeling myself right now(that's very unusual)!! HELP!!! I just need to lose 20lb for starters. HELP!!

    You can do it!!!! Don't give up... just think about it like this. If you don't do it now... you may end up having to lose twice as much later on. That is what I say to myself everyday single day because I would rather lose 17 lbs instead of starting at my goal weight again which is 185 if I stop stop eating healthy and working out! I was were where you are and I know exactly how you feel!!!! Remember... we only have one body so we should make this one the way we want it so we can be happy everyday and love the way we look instead of feeling uncomfortable when we look in the mirror!! You got this.... WE got this!!!!

    Let me share my story with you: I have been heavy for the last 18 years. Every years I go on an diet and so on. Last year I decide that I wanted to be healthy (mindset). I slow start changing things in my diet along with my portion size. I research and research for about two month all the different diet and eating plans. So I took I have learn and made my own plan. Last year I lost 15pds in two months then found out I was pregnant with twins.

    A year later I am taking it one day at a time...I slowly went back to my eating habits and I use going to the gym as me time to myself and to relax myslef. I stop saying I want to lose weight now I say I want to be healthy. I do allow myself 2 days a week that I eat anything I want but nothing really bad. Just as long as it is sugarfree. You can email me and send me a text 713-245-9337 so we can keep each other motivated. I live in Houston (southeast side)as well.

    I have a couple lines of thought about your delema.
    The first line we could use the "Location, location, location" approach.
    Instead of you usual workout places, try going to someplace different. Sub-consciously you might be bored with your current routine.
    Examples of which;
    If you live near Herman Park to exercise, go to the San Jacinto Monument instead for your workout session(s).
    Go to Galveston. Ride a bike along the seawall.
    Ask if your local mall has program that allows people to power walk the inside before the stores open.
    A change of scenery is a good thing.
    The second line would be your food.
    Look at your meal plan, don't like the food item, change it with an allowed alternate.
    Remember variety is the "spice" of life. Don't eat boring tasteless food.

    Some one posted, set a small goal for yourself. You posted that you wanted a 20 lb. drop in weight, set your sights on a 5 lb. weight to start. Weigh yourself weekly, in the a.m. right after a trip to bathroom, and you might get a surprise on how well you will be losing weight.

    I hope this helps even a little.

    i got 20 too! let's do it. pick a small part of your routine and build from that. i remember thats how i started when i initally lost my weight. so for me right now, getting my water back to 9 cups a day is step one.

    I totally understand where you are coming from. I just got back on the workout/healthy band wagon. And when I say just got back on, I am on day 3. It is a slow process, and you just have to do it. I read a blog on yesterday, and it said something that really stuck out to me; and that was that taking care of the body should be like brushing your teeth. It is something that you have to do daily to maintain and keep healthy. I was really blown away with that small statement. I decided that it was a very true statement. So, everyday after work I WILL be at the gym. Even if it is only to do those 30 minutes of cardio. I owe myself that. I would like if we could keep in touch and motivate each other. I know you can do it. Just do it for you and start small. Something is always better than nothing, and you will be back where you were in no time.

    Don't let it win. Try doing something unusual and or different. Turn on your favorite music and just move until you cant move. Add extra movements where you can, dance while you clean, shake your hips, arms, legs while sitting. Show your unwanted pounds who's the boss.

    I agree baby steps.

    Find those favorite jeans that you want to fit into and hang them where you can see them everyday. I can understand where you are because getting back into it has been a struggle for me also.

    Like Evamathena said... set small goals and work UP from there.

    Start with small changes. Focusing on the 20lbs you want to lose right now may be too big. Focus on 2lbs then make another goal. You can do it!
