Hello Spark WORLD.... I feel compelled to do a full confession.

I have been so "out-of-it" lax this BLC round and am ashamed that my weight loss hasn't been higher. But, I haven't gained it back, just pausing. HA HA Ha, just lazy more like it!

Last night we decided go home for Thanksgiving. That means the CRITICAL FAMILY EYES will be upon me. Yes, it's true I've lost 25-30 pounds since they saw me last but I WANT MORE. I WANT THEIR EYES TO POP OUT OF THEIR HEADS (gruesome, but fitting for HALLOWEEN).

Which means I have 26 days to get more FAT off and TONE and SHAPE my body MORE. Since this trip will include seeing my all-critical mother, it would be fitting to be in those Levi 515's that I can't button, while sporting a close-fit top rather than a plus size tent! Plus it's cold back home and that means more clothes than I normally wear, which of course adds to the bulk.

So there you have it, this morning I decided ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and I'm going to strictly go back to phase one and eliminate the processed foods. That seems to be where my downfall begins. I know some don't agree with eliminating foods that are triggers, but in my PERSONAL CASE, they have to be eliminated. I can't just have ONE....because ONE turns into TWO, THREE, FOUR, etc. I know where my faults lie and to bust through to the other side, this must be done.

I should be able to lose the belly fat and strengthen more of me in 26 days. I'm not saying that will be the ultimate goal, but I have to get off my butt and DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS PAUSE. This will be with no pills, surgeries, or wacky recipes, just good old fashioned sweat and, of course, tears.

The reason I am writing this is because I need your support and encouragement. I'm out here and sometimes I don't feel the LOVE! Sometimes my team just skips over my posts, so I'm taking my plea to the ENTIRE SPARK WORLD.


Okay, I'm ready.........................

    Sorry to hear that you are not finding the support you need from your team.

    First, remember that you are doing this for yourself. You don't have to please anyone but yourself. I think that if you work hard on the exercise and eating you will feel fantastic about yourself by Thanksgiving, no matter what the scale shows. Feeling confident, proud and strong will make you shine far more than any amount that shows on the scale. Hold your head up high and be proud of what you have accomplished. emoticon

    Why on earth would anyone tell you not to avoid your trigger foods? Just to make it harder? Insane.

    Sorry your family is critical, but I know if you hunker down, you'll be more toned ... and remember to do it for YOU, as that is only one day.

    I think I'd get a spanx girdle like thing too and squish myself even smaller on T day too just to really freak them out with smallness. It'd have to be a full body thing and a compression shirt for the arms like runners/biker's use. I mean if you really want to shock them! Of course I am sneakier than most.

    What a great incentive to stay on track! I recently saw some of my family members who haven't seen me in months and it was so much fun to see their reaction to my weight loss!

    I know exactly what you mean about the trigger foods! I am the same way! It is easier to not eat it all, than to try to stop once I start!

    Good luck on your goals!!!

    I have so much to say. First of all you are funny and I love this blog. Second, I am sorry you have such a critical family. That is really lousy! Third, this is not the first I've heard someone say the BLC team ignores their posts. That is disheartening because from what I understand you put a lot in to those teams when you join. Anyway, Fourth and most importantly- their eyes WILL be popping out of their heads!!! I think you have already lost enough to cause this reaction but what great motivation to lose even more! How about 5 more pounds by thanksgiving? That is my goal and I am working hard! You can do it too! You will get in those jeans and walk in with your head held high! In fact, shop for a new tight outfit too, maybe something with a belt to highlight that waist. NO BULKY CLOTHING!! You've got this girl! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Good ol' hard Exercise and remember it gets easier the more you do. I suggest intervals and good ol' healthy eating. You know what to do, think of the reward at the end. By the way your mother sounds like mine was. Good luck, you can and will do this. emoticon emoticon
