It's all good.

Monday, February 07, 2011

I seriously go through these spurts of great weeks and spurts of bad weeks. And I really can't keep doing this. I'm loosing weight and that's all that matters but I need to get more serious and that's what I've been working on.

Who has reached a goal that really meant something to them? Big or small? You're so close to something but not right there yet. I"m four pounds away from my second goal. I'm ready to see 277 on the scale. But I'm even more ready to see 227 on that scale. I don't want it to take me 5 years to reach it. With all the decisions I'm making that's how long it'll take.

I just want to yell some sense into myself! Do you ever feel that way? I know I can do it yet I don't resist the temptations that surround me. I don't want to fail, and I'm not going to. I need to give myself more credit for what I've achieved but at the same time I feel I've been getting a bit comfortable.

It's time to work hard! Instead of doing 30 minutes on the elliptical I did 45. I went and pumped up the weights and even cooled down on the treadmill for 10 minutes. All together I feel good. It's all good!

With all this snow I just keep telling myself SUNSHINE. Bringing my inner sunshine out. I don't want to regret any of this time I have until the spring because once I have to peel all these layers off I want to LOVE the way I look.

Here's to living a healthy life!

    I started losing weight again in April when I weighed about 265 pounds. I'd say the first 20 - 25 pounds were full of dreadful exercise and reluctant healthy eating. I'm now about 227 pounds and I look forward to exercising and eating right now.

    Keep going. It WILL get better. I know it's a long road and there are frustrating days where you yell at yourself, "Why did you ever let yourself get so big?" or "It's going to take forever to get this weight off." But it feels like yesterday now that I started this. Yesterday that I was about 40 pounds heavier than I am now.

    Start out slow. Do what you can handle. Mix in some variety. Go for a bike ride, join a gym with a friend, go walking...swim in the better weather. Get a circuit training DVD. You CAN do this. But first you have to tell that demon in you, "Stop telling me I CAN'T."

    Don't get into the habit of beating yourself up, you are making EXCELLENT progress. (& at the end of the day that's all that really matters.) Don't feel bad if you fall off from time to time. (you aren't the 1st & trust me you won't be the last) The important thing is you are able to rebound so quickly. I remember once upon a time ago, my missteps would result in me sabotaging/punishing myself for WEEKS after I went off plan.

    Celebrate all that you've accomplished - you DESERVE it!! emoticon
