Need some motivation

Friday, February 24, 2012

Been dieting for awhile now and it's going slow! I guess I need to talk to myself some more.

So - I know I can do this - it is just taking so long. Lose a couple pounds then gain one.
I'm looking at what I'm doing that is not getting the results I want.
First I am tracking - but am doing it on line and maybe I'm not adding everything so am going to put a piece of paper and a pencil in my pocket and wright when I eat it.
I stopped measuring - ok I know what to do there.
Missed going for a walk - ok I know that one - but I am walking while I'm shopping. So to correct I will do this first thing in the morning.
Believe I can do it. I know that I have improved - I haven't gained anything back. Actually I lost 2 1/2 pounds this week. I'm just afraid I am not going to keep goingl
Ok - guess I know what to do about that.
Back to the drawing board and get out of this down feeling and I will be where I want to be.

    Not that bad.... If you have a camera on your cell phone, use that to help you with tracking. Take a picture of everything you eat. You don't have to post to a blog, but you can sit down at the end of the day, and scroll thru the pictures, and make sure you logged it all. I will also let you 'see' if your portions are decent. (and if you really have a hard time, you can post the pictures, and get comments)

    You are doing it the right way.... emoticon

    Writing it down, measuring, moving more, etc. are the way to go. I tend to get "slack" in those areas myself.

    You have done so great in the last 3 weeks and sounds like this week was a good week also! If I calculate it right... 4 lbs in 3 weeks plus 2.5 more lbs lost? You are doing good! Good idea on keeping a notebook handy to write things down as you go!

    You have not given up on yourself. You now know you are the only one that can make it happen for you.

    You have the power to succeed or fail.

    You have chosen to succeed.

    Few baby steps complete a long journey

    Writing is progress!!!
