How many re-starts until I get it right?

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

I am feeling very discouraged because I keep saying I'm going to lose this weight and instead of the scale going down- it goes up. I know what I'm doing wrong. I keep telling myself that I'm trying but I'm not. I can come up with every excuse why I don't have time to workout and eat right. They are all excuses that I can definitely over come.

I am shaving my head in 10 days to support the St. Baldricks foundation and raise money for childhood cancer. (my goal was to raise $250 and as of last night I'm up to $601!!!) I had wanted to lose 10 lbs by the shave and instead I've put on a couple.

But the wake up call came today. When I got up this morning and put on my nice comfy, *fat* jeans, they were tight. My fat jeans were tight. What a horrible disgusting feeling.

I just finished off the last Diet Soda in the house. There will not be anymore purchased. I have given up soda before and did fine. I don't even remember why or how I started drinking it again. But, I gave it up for several months with no problem. I tell my kids they shouldn't drink soda yet I sit here and drink. They even look at me and say "Mommy. I thought you said soda was bad for you?" What kind of a message am I teaching my children? No more!

Today is Independence Day- MY independence from Diet Soda and excuses!

No more excuses!

    Thanks Bustamiss. I actually just cancelled my WW online account yesterday. I know WW works but I would slack on tracking and then other days just feel overwhelmed by it. I did really great the first week and lost 4 lbs but then it went downhill. We are planning to join a gym next week so I couldn't see continuing to pay for the WW online plus the gym membership.

    Thanks Graced777. I'm starting with giving up my Diet Soda. Then I'll work on cutting out my coffee. Once we join the gym, I think that will help a lot too. Right now my only time to work out is when my son is sleeping but I have 5000 other things to get done during that time too so working out always comes last. But, by joining the gym he can go to the Tot Drop and play while I'm working out and that will still leave me his nap time to get other things done.

    I felt the same as you. Knowing I could do it, I knew what to do, but just not getting started at it. I joined Weight Watchers just as a motivation to get started. It worked. I'm down about 10 pounds, and don't plan to stop. I know once you get going, it will be the same for you! Set the excuses aside, cuz we both know they don't get you anywhere! Here's your start point to get going!!

    I just read something that said it doesn't matter how slowly you go, just that you go and something else that said every day is new. I encourage you to continue, knowing the weight will come off as you do and continue to do the right things. Maybe just pick one small healthy thing, then in a few days add another. Life changes as we keep making small changes.
