Eyes Wide Open!!!

Sunday, July 25, 2010

Well, here I am again. I see now that the main component to success is ALL in our heads-Your brain is truly the "Make or Break" of the whole process. I gave myself permission to do what I wanted to way too early. I could not get my head back in the game for nothing. I am walking on shaky ground. I feel ashamed of what I have allowed to happen to me-I know however that I need to shake it off and get back on track. I can do this-I have done it before. I just want to get off of this roller coaster. I hate feeling like a failure. I just want to do this and be done-no more struggle to maintain. I gain a pound by eating one bad thing- I gain 10 pounds over a weekend-CRAZY cause it takes more than a week to get it back off. What a vicious cycle. It is not fair.

Why did I end up with such a nonexistent metabolism? I see people eat 5x as much as me and not gain an ounce. I have been dealt a card that sucks. But it is my card and I can't be caught bluffing. I need to play my hand and let the chips fall back into place. So wish me luck. I'm gonna stop the foolishness. Peace!!

    The best way to amp up your metabolism is to move. Having had a metabolic crash when I hit my 40's I know what I'm talking about! I gained 30 pounds over the course of 2 years eating exactly the way I had always done and doing no exercise. Once I started watching what I put in my mouth - spark daily journal - and exercising as a matter of habit, the weight started coming off. It took me 9 months to get to where I am today. It didn't come off quickly, but I've pretty much maintained for the last year. If I stop moving and being diligent about my health, the weight starts creeping up.

    It's a lifelong process that starts with just one day. Keep focused on your goal, but keep your head in the here and now. Just for today - stick with what you know to be right. Then do it some more tomorrow. Soon you'll have racked up a bunch of todays that will change your tomorrow. Good luck and keep on sparkling!

    i know how you feel! after my last child was born, i lost all the baby weight and was the thinnest i've ever been. i had the crazy notion "there, i'm done. i've lost the weight and now i don't need to do anything." and so here i am again, trying to lose the weight. and the important thing i've learned is that this, for me, is a wellness journey. it goes far beyond weightloss. when i get to my goal weight, there'll be a whole new set of skills to learn since NEVER in my life have i maintained a weightloss. and i know the shame. sometimes i feel as if my weight ups & downs are (or have been) a public spectacle...but i have to let that go. this is about me. there is no deadline. there is no jury. there is no judge. there is just me, SP, and my faith that i am on the right path. you can do this! you are not alone - we share your fumbles, we share your success, we share your frustration, and we share your celebrations. in short, we share your journey! god bless and have a good day! emoticon emoticon
