Let's Get Real

Friday, September 21, 2018

Last year at this time I was 222 and so close to the goal of 'Onederland" that so many of us are trying to reach. But because of BAD choices I have made and thinking I could exercise everyday and still eat what I wanted to I am now back up to 260. I spent yesterday scolding myself and feeling like a fool yet again. Then I said to myself this RIDICULOUS!!! Do I want to lose weight and get to a healthy weight or do I want to spend the rest of my life on this crazy yo-yo dieting coaster. Of course I said I wanted to get healthier and stop this up and down crap!!

So here I go again (and hopefully for the last time) I am on a quest to get to Onederland and look better. As I have been going thru things in my house and getting rid of alot of stuff that I have just seemed to have collected over the years for no apparent reason it is time for me to get a hold of my late night, emotional, stress eating. I have began journaling (really they are pep letters to myself and little to do lists that I try to do to keep me focused).

If anyone reads this and can relate and wants to be a buddy where we can support each other please message me. I would love to hear from you.

But I will be checking in often (not sure it will be daily but every few days) and I am going to watch the numbers go down and praying that I will be close that 222 by the end of the year.

    Sp is the way to do it.

    We want to remember it took us a few years to put our weight on and it comes off a little at a time, just like it went on. People get frustrated with it not coming off faster than we put it on. But with consistent focus on doing what we are told on SP we will hit our objective. Like many things it just wont get there overnight.

    Make sure you make one of your most focused goals you water intake. Myself, when I hit plateaus its because I am not doing the water correct. I found using a reminder on my phone to be very helpful in making sure I keep on track with the water
