Weigh-in Today, bad day

Thursday, May 19, 2011

I weighed in today. It was a bad day I weighed 281, that's the most I have weighed in a year. I ate too much salt this week and I didn't drink enough water. I know I ate too much last night. I had chicken and dumplings. I need to get myself back on course.

I need to eat low-sodium. I can lose weight doing that. I know what to do. Just doing it is the problem. How can I get myself motivated? I have to go to my daughter's nursing school pinning and college graduation looking like this. It's this weekend. It's depressing to think about.

I read an article about looking in the mirror and seeing someone different than I feel I am. That's the way I feel. I even dream I am slim. I don't feel like a fat person, except when I weigh, try to buy clothes, or look in the mirror. I think of myself as being thinner than I see in the mirror. I need to make my mirror image match how I feel. That's what the article said to do and it made a lot of sense to me.

    Accept the bad days and move on. Just tell yourself that this will be last time you'll go to a major public life event (ie your daughter's graduation) like this.

    I put myself on the low-sodium thing. I can tell you that I started very slow. You don't have to start with low sodium, just start with lower sodium and work your way down. And as you you hit each now lower goal, you'll be motivated to keep on it because you did it. Like this website suggest, do everything in attainable goals until you reach that big goal.
