Future Pep Talk for Me

Monday, January 13, 2014

My first week towards a new me is done and I lost 3 lbs! I'm so excited. But, I'm so proud of myself. I exercised everyday, watched my calories and ate well. Hard work pays off! I need to remember how good it feels to get on the scale and see results. I know as the weeks progress that it won't be easy. And I need to anticipate slipping up, losing focus and motivation. So hopefully by writing a blog and telling myself how great I feel right now, that will motivate me to get back on the right path. And by telling myself why I'm doing it will help me find my motivation. So the below is more for me when I have those dark days (I'm being realistic I know I will have them) and I need a little pep talk.

I'm doing this for me! I'm doing this because I want to feel better. I want to look better. I want to keep up with my children. I want to keep up with my husband. I want to go on strenuous hikes with them. I want to do outdoor activities with them. I don't want to hold them up. I don't want to sit on the couch and let them go without me. I want to be front and center in pictures. I don't want to be in the back anymore. I want to wear cute clothes. I don't want to wear baggy shirts to cover my "love handles". I want to be healthier. I don't want to be tired anymore. I want to get off some of my medication. I want to be the person that I used to be. I want to be happy. I'm doing this because I am worth it! I know I can do this because I love challenges and always excel at them. I know I can do this because my family, my friends and my SP friends are supporting me! And I know how proud I will be of myself when I see the scales at my goal weight. I can do this! I want this!

    Yeah you awesome!! I stated over 12/31/13 I am watching portion control & my night time eating I am changing that to different things to eat. I make sure a night snack is 1 protein & 1 fat as it taks longer to digest. I will have a piece of celery with peanut butter 1 tbls. & a piece of Fit & Active cheese or a Fit & Active string cheese with a Fit & Active caramel rice cake with peanut butter & the cheese. I freeze my Fit & Active yogurt taste on the side of ice cream takes longer to eat as it is frozen solid. I am a night time eater how I am changing this I think that is how I lost my 4 pounds.
    I want to get back into my pencil skirts, & the beautiful clothes I have to wear that have long been put in the back closet. so this is an exciting time for me also. just the 4 pounds makes me beam as I know your loss does also. take care ( just think what we will like like at the beginning of summer!!!! )
