I'm sick of being fat!

Sunday, July 18, 2010

TODAY is the first day of my getting on track spree (again!). I get so mad at myself because I am so dedicated and disciplined in other areas of my life that why can't I do this? I NEED to lose this weight. I am pushing 200 and my target weight is 130! It seems like such a Lo-o-o-ong way away to that weight, but even if it takes me a few years, I HAVE to do this! For me. for my husband, fir my kids. I don't want o die early or have serious health issues later, especially with this new health care system coming up down the road ! OK. Today, I have done good! and I'm proud of what I did today. didn't have time to exercise, but I ate healthy and stayed within my goals. Tomorrow, I'll do a little better - that is my new outlook. "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me". So I can lose weight through Christ's help too.

    You can do this, I know the goal weight seems a long way off right now but you will get there and when you see how far you've come you'll be so proud (rightly so!)

    Take it one day at a time, don't feel guilty if you slip just get back on track

    "especially with this new health care system coming up down the road"

    LOL! I had the same thought when I started just over a year ago. I lost 70 pounds in that year. It's doable, just takes a lot of persistence and perseverance.

    For me personally, I found all of the information and suggestions a bit overwhelming. Watch your carbs, no eating late, exercise, tracking, measuring food, preparing meals. So much to consider. But the bottom line is that what matters most is what you put in your mouth. When I first started, I knew I had to close out as much as possible and focus on what I could. So I focused like a laser beam on tracking and nailing my calorie range as much as possible. Didn't care about carbs, eating late, none of the "rules" (most of which are rubbish, by the way). For the first month, I didn't even exercise. Just tracked. So if you're feeling overwhelmed by it all, just track. However you can stay within your calorie range, do it. If you have to skip exercise, do it. As these changes become second nature, you can introduce more changes. In your new body, you'll want to start exercising. Again, apply the slow and steady rule. You don't need a 30 day shred, or a tai chi kick 'em in the butt class. Go for a walk. Do 10 jumping jacks. Start the upward spiral. The first step is harder than the last.

    I wish you success!

    Just keep your head up and your drive going. I've kind of hit a wall and only lost 5 pounds in the last two months but i'm losing inches. Just keep at it.
