I'm finally fighting back!

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Hi everybody! Well after much struggling and defeat I'm happy to say that I'm slowly finally fighting back! This week so far has been much better than other weeks.

I finally decided that I have to do this. I have to be strong. I'm not going at it as strictly as other times or as hard because of my living situation which makes it hard. BUT I finally was able to eat better and control my portions especially when I did allow myself to eat not so healthy stuff. So far this week I haven't had any SODA at all, finally. I feel less bloated! I haven't had any tortillas either. I've substituted some meals with protein shakes, drank more water (haven't been able to have 8 cups yet), and kept myself from eating late at night. It's been hard to not be able to just eat whenever and whatever. Especially since I had gotten in the bad habit of whenever we were out we would pass through some kind of drive through for a shake, or ice cream, or food! BUt I have been strong so far and have kept from doing that. I've only officially exercised one day and that was walking 3 miles. Besides that I haven't done much more. But it's okay, I don't wanna be stressed out and bringing myself down thinking I'm not doing enough. All I'm thinking is that I'm doing much more than I was last week when I didn't care or watched my eating. It's better that I'm actually doing something than nothing. So even if this goes slowly or I don't loose too much, atleast I won't gain anymore weight while I'm at my parents.

I'll keep you posted on my weigh in this Saturday! On Monday I weighed about 170, so we'll see if I lost anything, atleast water.

    Try to also be patient yourself. You didn't gain this weight overnight & its gonna take almost 6months to a year to get it down to a science if not longer. In order to change our bodies we have to change our minds. This speaks volumes to me as today, I drank a pepsi. I don't drink a lot of sodas but I did. Then I had a biscuit for lunch with greens. Breakfast was a big pancake & a piece of sausage. Tonight I am going out with my company to a family style italian meal. I will be strong.

    God bless & lets do this!!

    HI! So nice to hear from you! You sound like me right now. I haven't lost any weight and I know it's because I haven't really done anything since this past Friday and Saturday. I have the intention, but my go get attitude gets kicked to the curb. Today, I planned to go on the trail since I was going to drop off something for my son at school, but instead of doing it, I passed the buck to my older son. I think I need to reboot like a computer.
