My confession

Sunday, March 17, 2013

I can’t tell you when it was, but I decided that I should step on that scale since it had been a few weeks since I had. You see, I had been staying around the same weight for months now and I was fine with that. I was exercising a bit each day by walking the dogs, even in the snow…they got to go!

But I didn’t always take the time each day to do all of the challenges that I was posting; thinking that walking the dogs was enough…. I shouldn’t take so much time researching things to add and since it takes so much time…I can’t to the exercises. It’s not that important for me to do the challenges that I post I thought…but it is really to me so that I don’t feel like a fraud or fake and I hate that feeling! And these challenges are for me as well as others in the group so I will get back into doing all that I post!

I was focusing on that other job. Focusing on thinking about getting the house in order; getting another place to live; I brought candy to work, just for my scratchy throat, but was eating too much; working on… you name it and then I stepped on the scales…6-pound increase? Of course it must be due to water weight or something such as that. So I tried some other days, but still 205 it tells me.

Then I didn’t log it on here. I was embarrassed but of course, I still told myself excuses for not logging my weight gain. I have to go to work; I’ll step on the scale when I’m logging on Spark People next time; I’ll get this off in a week or so, so don’t worry about it. The list goes on.

My what I thought was going to be my short-term goal this year, has been extended. I wanted to get to where I would no longer be considered obese, which would be when I hit 172 lbs or less and I wanted to hit that before Spring got started, but with all of those months of not losing much or not losing at all, or now gaining, I won’t see that goal until around June 30th of this year, but that is now my new short term goal.

So this is truly why I started my March Cardio Challenge, because I fell off the wagon and I need to run; not walk in order to catch up!

205- sometime after that
202-3/16/13 The extra cardio and exercise is working!

    I think weight loss is a learning process. I reached goal back in the summer of 2011, but have gradually regained most of the weight...but I'm not giving up on a healthy lifestyle. We can do this! emoticon emoticon

    Weightloss is not linear - you have found that out....someone describes it as stair steps - you go down, level out, go up a bit and then go back down. SO TRUE! Sometimes even when you are eating all the right things, calorie counting and excercising your brains out and STILL aren't losing any weight - it is enough to make you crazy!! Then, just when you are ready to give up - the scale budges...that wonderful feeling of accomplishment washes over you! Keep with it. Just remember that you are lapping everyone sitting on their couch. (that keeps me going when I am climbing the killer hill in my neighborhood).

    Sometimes we just have to stop and turn around and take care of ourselves. Just take it One Day at a Time. Be mindful of what you need to do and do it first. emoticon

    The good news is that SP never seems to go away, and you know what you need to do to get back on that wagon to meet your goal. I'm proud of you for sticking thru this and not throwing in the towel. Spring is the perfect time for a rejuvenated kick start!

    I know the feeling of not wanting to "confess" to a weight gain by logging it in here, but it keeps us honest, right? Don't forget strength training for shredding that fat - it will maintain your muscle mass while you melt off the fat. Very important and keeps your metabolism up, too. HIIT training is also super-effective for fat burning, and takes less time than regular ol' cardio. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-i

    It's a new day and never ever be too hard on yourself. Everyone slips now and then, it's ok. With springtime right around the corner and the days getting longer maybe you'll feel better and more like getting up and around, being more active. We can do this!
