Sick of gaining and loosing the same 5 pounds!

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

OK so I've had it, I can't do this anymore, I do really, really, good for a week, loose weight, and then think I deserve a "treat" so I eat whatever the hell I want, and end up putting back on anything that I've lost. This is ridiculous! I can't go on like this. Its February already and I'm still at the same old 200 mark. I need to get and stay motivated. When I went grocery shopping today, I bought some of my old diet standbys, I'm hoping that will work. I'm going to try to do cup o soup at night if I am hungry (or just bored) because I'm pretty sure its more boredom and loneliness that has me eating at night and not actual "hunger". I've just got to get my butt in gear and get going. My Mom and my sister are doing weight watchers and they have each lost 5 pounds already. I want to loose too. I really want to get back to 175. I know it can be done I just need to DO IT. We have started planning our next Disney vacation (not till next year) but still, I do not want to go to Disney fat again, I've done that twice, I won't do it again. And I would love to look good in a bathing suit this summer, I don't remember the last time I felt good in a bathing suit. So I'm going to try my hardest the next few weeks, I did work out yesterday, (finally) I figured I'd start off at 3 days a week and then work it up to 5. I really want this to work, and I want to stop sabotaging myself and any efforts I make. Yes this will be hard, and Yes it will take time (probably longer than I want it to take) But the results will be worth it. And I deserve this. I am worth it.

    You are worth it. Totally!

    However, maybe you should consider building a treat INTO your diet plan? You and I both have the same problem of "rewarding" ourselves for good behavior, to our detriment on the scale.

    So I've worked out some non-food rewards, as well as some food rewards. I mean, come on, how many ladies skipped dessert on the Titanic?

    So what would you consider a "treat" that would fit into your diet? A day off? Or just one meal where you can eat anything you like? How about a batch of cookies? Work something out and ONLY treat yourself when you've lost weight, and then stick to the treat you've decided on. Then pick a new goal with a new treat. Say, every 5lbs?

    However, a non-food treat is the ticket! Yeah! You can have as many of those as you like/can afford/can find. A massage? A night at the movies? A pedicure? A new book? Look for items that inspire and delight you. Suggestion: join up with and buy their credits in advance. Then reward yourself with an inspiring audio book, something that will feed your mind or your soul. Not a single calorie, but a LOT of food for thought!

    Good luck. You can do it, because you're wonderful!
