Do you really want this?

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

Lately I have been asking myself this question.
Do I really want this?
IF this is so true, why don't I push myself to do it? Like give it a 100%

I put together a work weightloss challenge and I thought I would really push myself and lose a good 10-15 lbs but I didn't. I just went through the motions.Not really giving any effort. The last weigh in is tomorrow and I am really disappointed at myself.

I have many events or motivators to lose this weight. But I just can't get rolling.

I want consistency, I want dedication, I want motivation, I want freedom from weight issues.

Have you? Thought that to yourself. Do you really want this?

    I am really sorry that you have had a really bump time with your workout challenge. I know mine worked for me be it wasn't just the group coming in to weigh in. We also had guest speakers to educate us on different nutrition aspects for inner health because it is all important as well. I don't think I would have had such a successful time for both challenges if I didn't have that education.

    Sweety if you ever have any questions let me know. I could very well have the answer or be able to find it quick. I really want to be able to help you.

    It's so much easier to sit on the couch eating the foods we love.
    We will always have excuses to why we are sitting there.

    What you need is a motivator, that one thought that will get you up and really moving.

    I know this is giong to sound silly but I think of my boyfriends ex. They have a son together but recently I heard her say she was 129 lbs. WHAT?! Here I am at 182 and shes at 129.

    So when I am thinking about exercising but not moving or going to get that peice of chocolate instead of carrots, I think of her.

    Bad right? But it gets me going.

    YOU CAN DO THIS! emoticon

    I joined a weight loss challenge group in fact I got most of the group there.
    I promoted it to my girlfriends and motivated them in fact 2 of my closest friends came in 2nd and 3rd place.
    But I didn't lose a pound.
    I am sooo happy for my friends and I see them taking steps such as working out that now I am motivated to making the time to work out.
    I know I want to lose this weight and get in shape so let's motivate one another.

    Angel, I am with you in fact my last blog was I give . I was depressed and decided that if this was what I was going to weigh so be it. However, I cannot say I am happy at this weight or that I feel good at this weight. I am ready to try the rubber band on the wrist thing, where when I am tempted to eat something I know is not good for me, snap the rubber band.

    I did find a free weight loss hypnosis download that I put on my MP3 player that as long as I had the time to do it everyday, worked. They say you need to do it everyday for 30 days then 1-2 times a week thereafter. It's 35 mins long. But once I went back to work my time for me just evaporated. If you are interested in the download just SPARK mail me and I'll give you the web address.

    Hang in there, we all have our highs and lows in this weight loss issue, it's so emotional but with support from our friends we can and will do this. Girl you do not walk alone.

    Hello Angel
    I always ask myself that same question. I use the word TODAY, When I am about to eat something that I really do not want I say TODAY out loud, and when I hear it I get refocused. I have had a hard time getting back like I was before the holidays.
    We have just started a great challenge if you would like to join you can.. emoticon
    DO not be so hard on yourself. Take one day at a time, and that is it. Have a great night.

    I think about it all the time. The answer is no. Yes I would love to be skinny and I would love to be fit, but I am not being forced to eat the burrito and I am not forced to sit on my fat butt. I do it because I mustn ot care enough to be skinny. Its like I am to comfortable being the fat girl even though I hate it.

    Hon, remember, it is not only about the weight! It is about changing out lifestyles. It does take time and there are going to be ups and downs. Believe me I have struggled with this too! The thing that I have noticed is that when I get down about not losing weight then things go down hill from there. But when I look at the progress that I have made so far, I get really motivated to do more and push myself more. Don't be so hard on yourself. We are only human. The fact that you are on SP and opening up about your frustrations means that you are motivated and are willing to do the work!! You can do this!!!! Take it one day at a time!!! emoticon Jenny

    For me, I just had to make up my mind and be patient; and not give up if I didn't see results right away. Slow and steady is the way to do it. I also just try to take it one day at a time. I've been at this long enough now to realize how much better I feel physically and mentally, that in itself is a motivation to keep myself going in the right direction.

    As a matter of fact I have asked this question to myself just recently. I got back into some old habits and I had to break myself of them once again. I guess we have to always remind ourselves WHY we are doing this. For me I can get caught up in what everyone else is doing, this doesn't work for me. I have to ask myself WHY am I doing this and say it out loud. I am doing this get get healthy and physically fit. I am not in competition with anyone else's efforts but my own. Find out what you enjoy about this journey and work on that. Tomorrow is another day. I take it one day at a time, one meal at a time and 1 lb. at a time. This is what I live by. Keep going forward and you will accomplish all that you desire in this journey. Have a great week!

    Don't give up~! You are on the verge of changing the same old attitudes and lifestyles. You are going to be victorious over this issue in your life. Look at how far you have come. Your trying and thats more than just thinking about it. Baby steps if need be. You are a child of God and He has a purpose and plan for you now. Don't stop being all that God has put in you right now. We are works in progress and our weightloss is a work in progress. Your a Priceless piece of Gods beautiful work~! Soooooooo, Keep moving a little at a time. You can do it~!!! emoticon

    I have contemplated this myself, so it was interesting to read almost the same exact words coming from someone else. I hope you can find the motivation to really throw yourself into this! Good luck to you.
