We Fall Down, But We Get Up!

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

I'm back at it again, but this time with a particular goal and date. I am going on a cruise in July and I don't want to be wearing a moo-moo near the water. I have purposed it in my mind to lose 35 lbs...the right way. I'm tired of fad diets. Also, I have identified the roadblocks that have derailed my efforts before and have put provisions in place.
First of all, I am going to stay away from the daily and weekly weigh-ins. When the number on the scale does not jive with what I have in mind, I give up. Which is really stupid when I think about it, because giving up will definitely not help me reach any of my goals.
Secondly, I have accepted the fact that life happens and when it does I should not look at it as losing the war on weightloss, but simply a minor casualty. I must bandage it up and get back into battle.
Thirdly, I have realized that this is a lifestyle change, so I must view it as a marathon and not a sprint. And although my good efforts and changes over the past 3 weeks seem more like 3 months, and I think I should see 3 months worth of progress, in reality it is still just 3 weeks. Change takes time.
And finally, when my husband decides he wants to make buffalo or fried wings for dinner and it is not time for my cheat day.........NO PROBLEM....I've got a stash of the healthy stuff in the freezer. I simply defrost and enjoy. BAM!
