A Ford F-150?

Monday, March 22, 2010

We met my mom last weekend to drop off my son for Spring break. In our usual fashion, we met at the halfway point and ate lunch together. It was as normal as any other time we've done this. This weekend we picked my son back up and spent the day at home. Its funny what kids will do when they don't want to go to bed. Tonight he was all moping around and acting sad. I asked him what was up and he replied that he was sad about something my step-dad said about me. Not thinking twice about it, I asked what he said. Well, apparently, I look like I ate a Ford F-150 pickup truck. I know my weight is going up. I can feel it in my clothes. I can see it in the mirror. And the funny thing is, I've been working out consistently for a month now and the weight still seems to be piling on. I'm just down and out. I get motivated for a week or so, do really good, then it just falls to the wayside. Its been a pattern for a long time now. I don't want to look like I ate a pick-up truck or anything else that's huge. So now what?

    I get down on myself often too. I fall off the wagon a lot. I have found taking baby steps helps a lot. One small change until it is part of your life. My first small step was to give up french fries. Good luck. Don't give up. You can do it.

    Be true to yourself..... Don't let negative people get you down!
    You have come to the right place for encouragement!
    Use the Meal tracker - Keep track of everything you eat.
    Drink lots of water - Keep track of everything you drink.
    Walk - Keep track of every bit of exercise you do.
    Get a pedometer and make every step count.
    Keep going! emoticon emoticon
    Good Luck!

    Wow, what a horribly inconsiderate thing for someone to say, especially to or around your son. I truly feel the best thing to do when you are having trouble staying motivated is to make little goals. Nothing too big or daunting, but something you know you can do. It's definitely helped me get my motivation up more. Just don't let the down and out times last for too long. emoticon
