Ughh....been disappointed in myself

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

Well I haven't gotten too far in the last 2-3 weeks. The weekends hit me pretty hard while trying to spend time with my fiance and then two of my sons celebrated their birthdays. So between chinese food, ice cream cake, regular b-day cake and just the overall feeling of "I don't wanna have to watch everything I eat all the time"...it just got the best of me.

I started out this week better than I was doing though. I worked out 50 minutes today. And I did some major house cleaning for about an hour yesterday, so I've burned a lot of calories. I was finally down another 2.4 lbs this morning from 2 weeks ago. I was really starting to get down on myself before today. I only have 4 1/2 months to go and a lot of weight yet to lose.

I have been finding it hard to stay on track and motivated lately. 12 lbs lighter and I still don't see a difference in my clothes. I was hoping I would've. Maybe another 10 and I will. Next goal is to get below 230. I am almost there. I am at 232.8. So hopefully by the end of next week I will be there. I haven't seen 220's since right after I had my daughter over 3 years ago. I think I will be happy if I can get to at least 190 before my wedding. Hopefully the dress will fit at that weight!!

I am gonna try to work out at least ever other day if not every day, Mon-Fri. I think right now, that is what I need to do to keep on track. The calorie counting is only getting me halfway there, SLOWLY. Time to get in gear and move now. Been slacking on my 8 glasses of water a day too. So gonna try to get back on track with that too.

    Don't get down on yourself, there are enough other people in the world who get down on us, we don't need to add to that. Life happens, it even gets in the way sometimes.

    Remember that eating right and getting exercise is making you healthier - even if the scale isn't moving, you are making positive changes for yourself as you move forward, and that is the best thing for you! emoticon

    Set up a goal a week and achieve it, then add in the next. You'll be doing great in no time. And be a little kind to yourself. These challenges will come up all the time in your journey. You've handled it with grace, making sure you're eating healthy and burning calories around all of the fesitivities.

    So hang in there. You'll make it!!!!! I believe in you.
