BLC16 - Week One

Monday, April 18, 2011

"What was the first week like for you? What worked and what didn't? What do you need to do differently next week?"

I posed this question on the thread, as it is something I really need to think about. I didn't want to clutter up the poor Bombshells with my confused thinking.
So the first week was like a non-week. I have hardly been committed to making changes at all, and I really, really need to do so. I am trying to figure out why part of me doesn't want to. For the last 18 months I have been able to stabilise my weight and eat without really policing myself. However, the wheels fell off this year, and I have gained about 10lbs pretty quickly. I know that I can lose weight and I do enjoy exercise when I get into it, but I am having a really hard time, even though I have set up accountability all over the place. And right now I even have the luxury of time, which I won't have once I start work in May. I think I am really stressed about the new job, the longer hours (my kids!), the higher level of responsibility and accountability. Even though it is what I have really wanted for along time, I am also scared about not measuring up. I know that I can do it, but part of me is being the whiney, needy, lazy, immature slob that lurks in my head. I know that I am tired, but in a way, that is self-inflicted.

So, next week will be much, much, better, because I am committed to making changes and being a much better me than I have for a while!

(Man, that feels better!)

    Tania, I'm playing catch up with the team, since I've been off line so long. I want to get to know everyone. I'm glad your first day at work was a success and hope you're more comfortable with it now that day 1 is over.

    You have a good attitude, that's half the battle. Good luck with your journey. We can do this!!!

    Okay Tania, you can do this!!! You will eventually succeed if you never give up. Think of it this order to lose weight, you need to make some changes that you have not made yet. This is like practice for maintenance-every change you can make, whether it's portion control(my biggest biggest downfall), getting in some exercise, drinking water, eating veggies etc. are things that will bring you closer to a weight you want to be. You "mess up" one week than you need to make the commitment all over again the next-exactly what you're stating in your blog. Again, you are in training for maintenance. This has been my motivator this whole time when I slip up. You can do this, you know you can. You have an entire team behind you, helping you reach your goals. I'm cheering for you Tania!!! Cheers,
