I'm Trying!

Monday, May 13, 2013

It doesn't matter what diet I try, week one is always good and I can stick with it no problem. But for some reason when it becomes week two I just have a hard time sticking with it and I want to break my diet.

How ever, I'm really trying to stick with my diet this time because last week when I lost 1.8 pounds in ONE week made me feel really good and I think if I can have 3-6 months of loosing that much a week it'd be great and I'd be close to my goal.

If I lost that much a week for 6 months I'd be 173 which is only like 28 pounds from my goal of 145. I would do anything to loose this weight and be 145. I have been less then 200 in YEARS. I think it's time to change that.

I want to go to a store and not shop in the plus sizes. I would love to wear clothes by Selena Gomez, and all these other skinny people clothes. I just want to feel good about myself and honestly? I want to walk in a room and have everyone stare at me because I look good, not because i'm fat and i'm walking weird or some other excuse.

I'm trying, and I'm going to do it. I have an interview on Wednesday for a full time position at work. I want this position really bad. I'm also thinking of doing 1 of 2 things. Either joining the gym at work or buying the 25$ gym key in my complex. I don't know what's best but we'll see.

My goal is to be at least 195 by my birthday on July 22. I want to be under 200 by then and I'm dedicated to getting there. My 2nd goal is to by at least down to 150 by Christmas. :)

I'm trying to stay dedicated, and that's why I'm going to post a blog when ever I can. So I can get some support, motivation, and tips to staying strong.

I feel if I can get past this week 2 slump and not cheat (at least not cheat much) then I'll be okay for the rest of the journey. But week 2 is ALWAYS the hardest, and I've never successfully gotten past week 2 before. I plan on changing that now. Wish me luck?

Also, can you please wish me luck on this interview? I really want this full time position so I can possibly get a car and move out on my own next year. :) Thanks!

    Look at it as a healthy way of eating and life rather than a diet and you'll continue doing a good job. emoticon

    Actually you know, today is the first day of the rest of your life. Tomorrow will be that too! So try not to think of it as the 2nd week, but think of each day as a new day! Put forth your very best effort and before you know it, you will be well past that 2nd week and doing well! Keep on keeping on - You can do it! Best Wishes!

    This is what helped me lose the weight. I stopped treating it like a diet. I eat healthy 98% of the time and when I eat something not that healthy I don't look at it as cheating, just being human. When you look at it as cheating you sometimes say to yourself, as long as I "cheated" with this I might as well continue with "cheat foods" for the rest of the day. That is how you gain or not lose weight and think of yourself as a failure. If you have a piece of cake at a party just quickly go back to eating healthy and say to yourself, next time at a Birthday party I will try half a piece to satisfy me. You need to create a forever lifestyle as this is how you will have to eat the rest of your life, mindfully.

    one little bit of constuctive advice, i can offer, please stop calling it a diet.
    just eat healthy, when we call it a diet, we think we are restricting ourselves and then we get cravings.
    eat lots of protein, greek yogurt, cottage cheese, beans, tuna etc
    find foods high in protein and you can have snacks
    find weight watchers desserts, etc
    you wont feel like you are denying yourself and you wont look at it as a diet
    just set a realistic number of calories to reach your goal and ask sp tracker to set this for you.
    you can do it and do it right and slow and it will be weight that will stay off and you will learn proper nutrition to keep it off.
    good luck emoticon
