New Goals New Challenge

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

I read your comments and my first thought was, you guys are the best. Thank you, all of you, for your honesty, encouragement and being in the fight together with me. Yes we Can Do This.

Yesterday I set a goal - lose 2 pounds by next week. It's realistic and I can handle a two pound weight loss. I'm trying to look at the small versus the larger goal. I'm determined not to do it.

The thing is being overweight makes me feel just plain lousy and when I go to try on clothes and they don't fit well, it gets me down.

Overeating is self defeating.
Overeating keeps the self-loathing thoughts going.
Overeating is painful.
Overeating doesn't solve anything. It creates more yuck stuff for me.

I got to remember these things. I need to hold them in front me until they get into my head. Overeating or grazing at night is THE PROBLEM so why am I reaching for the very thing that hurts me. - New challenge - New Goal for January 2018 I'm going to lose 2 or 2 1/2 pounds a week.

Guys we can do this. We will do this. We are worth it. Let's do it!!!!

    Also please track the food you do eat. Every so often when I cut back I don’t get enough protein ar fiber. I did do a fiber challenge at one time that helped me. Getting enough fiber I felt full and enough protein I wasn’t as tired. emoticon

    I'm with NOMORECLOUDYDAY - I actually put the scale away for awhile, because I had NO control over what it was doing. Instead I focused on the things I COULD control (Yes, I CAN exercise 10 minutes more this week than last week! Yes, I CAN add one more serving of fruits/vegetables to my day!). By focusing on the things I COULD control, eventually the scale DID cooperate!

    overeating is not the solution to any problem. What can you do instead of reaching for food?

    ...clothes fit better.....My balance, strength, etc improved. Just be careful making goal with scale.

    You may want to try goals you can control.In my experience I can't control scale.My goals are to make it to the gym 5x a week and to stay within calorie range and keep up with other things already doing.My scale hasn't moved.I feel better.....
