Positivity Blog- Week One Results

Thursday, March 24, 2011




I am so excited I could just dance all day- I had a great first week of my new plan!
Here is what I did:

emoticonAte 5-6 smaller meals a day,
emoticonI did not eat after 7:00
emoticon I tracked EVERYTHING I ate
emoticon I Measured every portion
emoticonI focused on good protein, good fat and healthy carbs
emoticon I planned every meal

I lost 7.2 pounds from last Thursday's weigh in at 174!!!
I made a plan and I stuck to it!


I feel empowered!
I feel happy!
I feel confident!
I feel proud!
I also feel worried....will I be able to keep on my plan while on vacation? I may not be able to weigh and measure everything, but I will really look at what I am eating and watch my portions. I will still try to eat the smaller meals throughout the day, and I will get much more exercise than I have at home.

I am just feeling so wonderful! I have been at this weight many times before....and I've stuck to my plan before...and then I've gained it all back and started over. I just have to have faith and determination that this time will be different, this will be THE time.


But for today, for this week, I am feeling successful because I met my goals! I am so thankful that I started a week ago- I am that much further in than if I had waited any longer!

I made a plan and I followed through- that is a truly happy, positive feeling!!!



THIS WEEK's MOTIVATING SONG: FIREWORK!!! (Love the words!!!)

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting throught the wind
Wanting to start again

Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards
One blow from caving in

Do you ever feel already buried deep
Six feet under scream
But no one seems to hear a thing

Do you know that there's still a chance for you
Cause there's a spark in you

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own

You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow
And when it's time, you'll know

You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
Just own the night
Like the Fourth of July

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em all in awe-awe-awe"


Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
And now it's time to let it through

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on slet your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em all in awe-awe-awe

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon

You will be fine on vacation. You know what to do and what not to do. Just make another plan and stick to it.
