Well, think I'll try again.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Everytime I start a diet I always say it's going to be different this time, I'm going to stick with it, I want to be able to tie my shoes, and buy a pair of pants with a zipper. It's not that I can't do it because I have before, I guess I could use the ole, "well I'm getting older so it's not so easy for me to lose weight," line, which we all know is just crap. I don't know why I can't seem to stick with a diet anymore, in fact I don't know why I can't seem to stick with anything anymore. My family is, for the most part, supportive but they don't understand. They really don't know how I feel, I hate when my mother says, "you really should take off some of that weight," or when my husband says, "I love you the way you are, even if you were 300lbs I would love you." I guess he hasn't really looked at me lately since I'm already very close to 300lbs. I never thought I would get this big, when I hit 180 I thought well this isn't a bad weight for me, I look ok, I'll stay at this weight. The next time I got on the scale I was over 200 but decided that as long as I didn't go over 225 I'd be ok. Well 225 came and went and so did 250, 275, 280, and now 290 is getting dangerously close. I have got to stop, I can't breath, can't tie my shoes, my back hurts, knees hurt, feet hurt, it all hurts. I see myself in a mirror sometimes and it makes me feel like crying but yet I keep eating, why do I do that? I don't want to be fat anymore, I'm going to be 55 this year and I would really like to see 95 like my grandmother did. So once again here I go on the diet journey.....

    First off, quit using the word DIET! It is so negative and very restrictive. Second, remember why YOU want to do it. You listed it above. Are those things really more important to you than those foods you crave, or sitting on the couch watching a pointless tv show? Is your back hurting just sitting worse than it aching because you exercised?

    It really is quite simple once you a ready to make the choice. It is simply about choices. Which choice is it?

    No, I never got that large, just 190, but I stopped and made the choice. AND so can you. And even today, my family, friends, co-workers tempt me constantly. Even when they know I am working toward a very lofty goal - I AM on a diet for a competition. I do make choices everyday. It is not easy.

    But we have this WONDERFUL tool and great people here.

    Please don't look at how far you have to go. Take one day at a time and start today with little changes. Drinking more water. Eating more fruits and vegetables. Getting in 10 more minutes of exercise every day. After the end of this week - so what you did, then adjust, and do better next week. You can't lose.

    So you'll make mistakes. Learn from them and move on.

    I am here to help you with whatever you need. You are YOUNG... you don't want to live 40 more years feeling this way... you can do it. I know you can.
