Damage control!!

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Hi everyone. I am blogging because I have to take action against my getting off track. I am in damage control mode. I have found myself using the same excuses that I had used before to fall off track and now I am trying to get back on track and it's not easy. There are many reasons that are more than enough to cause me to lose focus on my goals but there are more reasons to get back on track...
I have noticed that anytime I am close to reaching a mini goal then I self sabotage. I don't do it on purpose but I always end up going backwards. There are probably many reasons for that as well but I have to refocus on the big picture.
I was less than 3 lbs away from going into the 150's and so far I am double that. I have gained 3 more pounds and have lost the motivation because again I feel like I failed. I know that I can take the 3lbs back off but it's a little bit difficult to overcome the negative thoughts surrounding this weight gain. I am great at motivating others but I fall short when it comes to myself.
Though I am still in a better place than I was 6 months ago, I still need some work.

So, starting today I am going to work on new mini goals. One is to get back to sparking on a daily basis.
Two is to overcome this negative thinking and give my body and my health the same chance I would give someone else's.
Three is to focus on the positive things my mind and body are capable of doing and have done.

I am in damage control mode and I can't give up.. I won't give up because I am worth it!

    Been there, done that. Know where you are coming from. But don't give up, you'll only feel worse and gain more in the long run. we are NOT perfect and can't expect ourselves to be. Just keep on keeping on as I KNOW emoticon

    Sometimes we need to sit ourselves down for a heart-to-heart and ask what will happen if we reach that goal. What are we afraid will change? What new challenges do we think reaching that goal will bring us? The answers can be surprising.

    If misery loves company, there are way too many that you are describing, myself included. Have been trying to get into the low 150's, preferably the 140's. Prednisone just shot me back to 160's. Will not give up, but it sure gets tiring to lose the same lbs. over and over.

    I was reading your blog and felt I could have written it myself. I was 1 pound away from entering the 130's and now I am hovering around the high 140's.
    Here is hoping both of us can stick to our goals and fly by those numbers soon:)
