There's something I should be doing.......

Monday, February 11, 2013

Do you ever have that niggling little thought in the back of your brain - like you forgot something, or there is something you should be doing?

Well - I've had that for the past, oh.... 6 months. Except I knew good and well what that *something* is. I've just been ignoring it.

I've been eating whatever, not exercising... same old patterns, same crappy feelings afterwards. I'm sick of feeling like this, of looking like this, sick (so, so, SO sick!) of shopping in the Plus Size section... I know how good it feels to lose... to move down a size. Why do I let myself fall back into these ridiculous habits?

Ease? Comfort?

Whatever, I'm over it. And my chin.

You hear that chin?

So I'm trying to approach this in a healthy way, Not beating myself up for past transgressions (although it's hard), not making huge changes that are impossible for me to follow through on, drinking more water and less (make that no) soda, and planning on working some activity in every day (eek!).

Anyway, that's my update for today. Hope everyone has a great day - and wish me luck!

    Good Luck! I know how you feel I've tried diets lost some weight but went back to my old eating habits and gained the weight back. I feel terrible about it and yet kept doing the same thing. I am on this same journey with you and I know we can both do this! emoticon

    I'm so glad to see you back here.

    I went into this almost a year ago, feeling the same way you are now and I vowed not to drive myself crazy over the weight loss - just work on getting healthy. I lost 35 pounds in that year, then put five back on, but now I'm back to working on it again, so I'll get that back off. Yes, I could have obsessed and lost twice as much, but I probably would've driven myself crazy. LOL

    Anyway, welcome back and make sure your chin keeps listening.

    It is important to think behaviors. Write down specific behaviors that you will stop doing and then write down the replacement behavior. For example, I will no longer park on the first floor of the parking garage. I will park on the third floor and walk down the stairs to first floor and to my desk. Or I will no longer take the elevator to lunch or to my morning break. If you make it something very specific that is within reason to change, that will kick-start your healthy habits. Good luck!
