Freaking out a bit about getting to ONEderland....

Thursday, April 12, 2012

So 10 days ago April 2nd I weighed in at 209.5lbs 9.6lbs away from ONEderland...I was extremely excited thinking I'm right on track if I'm losing about 2.5lbs per week to hit my ONEderland goal by May1st....I have had that date in mind for a very long time...its my sons third birthday! So then this past Monday I weigh in at 209.5 again...ahhhhhhh! Now I'm freaking out. Have I hit a plateau the last few weeks before my goal date. Its not a matter of me worrying about being in the ones I know that is going to happen...its a matter of making it happen by May 1st. Which you may think I'm just being silly about..which may be true....but when I set a goal for myself I intend on MAKING it happen. So now I have set myself up to having to lose a little more than 3lbs per week....which I know I can do. Thing is I thought I did that last week. I busted my tail working out and eating right...I guess its really no different than any other week. Its just frustrating and discouraging. I mean my mom was in town visiting and of course she loves taking her grandbabies for icecream....so a couple days we walked to get icecream I however passed it up and just ordered an unsweetened ice tea....so I dont endulge in these things do what I'm suppose to do and I hit a plateau.....so yes I'm freaking out! Had I messed up and hit a plateau I would be okay with that knowing that this week I would just change it. But I'm freaking out because I'm like what do I change...I ahve to break through this plateau THIS week otherwise I will have to make up weightloss for 2 weeks insted of one...May 1st is going to be here before I know it...I just hope ONEderland comes before then! Sorry....thanks for reading my vent!
I am aware its just a number....however I'm also aware I have NEVER weighed in at that number since elementary school I was 255 at the age of 12 so yeah that "just a number" is meaning a lot to me right now! :o) eeeekkkkk

    It might be just a number but that number is very,very,, important......suppose we had looked at just a number while we were putting the weight on, we might not be in this situation right now. Sometimes we need to think about a lot of these saying that have been said over the years....example don't stress over the scale, it's just a number and so on. I need those number goals to keep me going and it encourages me, so go forth with that number, set it, reach it, and keep going down on the scale. I can't wait to read when you reach that number in your next blog. I know you will acheive it soon. emoticon

    Drink four or more glasses of green tea with lemon everyday! It will help break the plateau and detox your body! You can do it!

    Keep that date in your mind but even more so, keep that body in gear....I hit Onederland for the 1st time in 25 years on 3/6/12....then the scale messed me with for a couple weeks back and forth...I wanted it to sad and actually I just wanted to SEE a "1"...after that it was back to business. Happily I'm still in the "1's" and working hard to keep it going down. No matter May 1, May 6 or June 1st...keep pushing to get "there" because it will come!! Like you I am a date setting but in this journey, I have also become a date changer so don't stop and enjoy the ride, it's SO worth it!! Congratulations on how far you have come already!!

    Just hold this thought in your heart: Whether you get to one-derland exactly on your child's birthday or not -- he will NEVER remember you as having been fat:) Imagine that for a few moments, and take a deep breath. You've done so much good for yourself ... you're just fine tuning a beautiful thing from here on in. Enjoy the journey:)

    I know you can do it. I set a goal to get to ONE-derland by my 60th birthday on Jan. 1, 2011. I made it on Nov. 3, 2010. What a thrill. It truly is everything it's cracked up to be--even though it's just a number--for some reason it represents so much more. I think it represents normalcy, and isn't that what we're all striving for? I just wanted to be average. I wanted to be able to walk into a room and not be stared at, or walk down the street, and not hear the rude comments from teenagers driving by in cars. Normal is highly underrated. It is ONE-derful!

    I' know where you are right now. I've missed almost every weight goal that I set but I kept on keeping on. Now, I'm down about 60 pounds from my hightest weight and I try not to let the scales dictate to me. I know how frustrating it is to be doing everthing right and still not loose. I've been losing the same 4-5 pounds for about 4 months and am very frustrated but..... Don't beat yourself up if you don't quite make your goal. You may not win this battle but you are winning the war... emoticon

    My scale has been laughing at me for weeks. It was 145 then 147 then 145 again Then this week, 140. I understand the frustration. Don't get discouraged and stick to it, this too shall pass. Good luck

    It's possible that all your hard work won't show up on the scale until next week. The results aren't always immedite, much to our annoyance.

    Good luck!
