I Am Not Going to Lie....

Thursday, December 10, 2009

I am not going to lie and say everything has been going great. It hasn't!

I hate how I am so bipolar about this. I do so great and I am giving it my ALL and then I just fall off the wagon. Its so hard to get back on once you fall!

Instead of beating myself up about this, I am just going to take the time to analyze what I am doing wrong so I can fix the mistakes and learn from them. They will make me stronger in the end if I identify them and correct them.

I am realizing that the scale really depresses me! There are days that I do incredibly well, only to weigh myself the next morning and find that I have gained weight or only lost .2 pounds. Whatever! I am making a commitment to stick to it with NO scale until January 1st! No measurments either!!

My biggest downfalls lately is that I have been extremely hungry lately and very tired.

To combat hunger, I am going to work on eating a ton of fruit and veggies. Maybe I will even make myself a stir fry for a snack.

As for the tiredness, I have found that exercise DOES help to gain energy in the long run. I just need to remember this! A little caffiene before a workout helps too :)

Another thing I want to change right now is the time I spend on facebook. I go on there often to relax and I have found it rewarding. Instead of sitting down with a bowl of ice cream to relax, facebook is my indulgence. However, I really feel I need to be investing in people that will help me with my weight loss. I need more spark friends! I have an amazing spark buddy who motivates me so much, and for that I am so thankful!

Other lessons that I have learned... Right now while I am on my weight loss journey, I have priorities. Obviously my family comes first, but after them my weight loss comes next. This means that instead of stressing overly my un-imaculate home I focus on my workout that will give me results that will last forever (instead of cleaning which lasts a matter of mins in this house!).

    Jessica, I feel the exact same way! I think the scale can be detrimental to your motivation, but at other times - it can keep you motivated when you see a loss! I like the no weighing in part of your plan too! Maybe for now, just go with how you feel each day! I started SP over a year ago then stopped when I was pregnant with my second son. I have a 50lb goal and just started again. I am now trying to increase my friends too, because everyone's stories are motivating to me and assures me that I am not alone in this battle!
    Good luck! I am here with you =)

    it happens to all of us! 1 day good 1 day bad i found that everything in moderation helps! so if ive been good and i have exercised i allow myself a treat without feeling guilty and then i know i wont binge later.

    i agree..exercise first then clean house!

    NO scale until January..i am going to do this too
