Scale going the wrong way, another Day 1

Tuesday, July 08, 2008

Yep, starting over, back on the wagon, getting with the program.... whatever you want to call it, I need to do it. I let things like tracking and exercising slide the last few weeks and lo and behold the scale is going back up. According to the SP goal setting calculator, I will not be able to reach my birthday goal in December at the 2 pounds per week pace SP allows, that was a real kick in the tush. At 2 lbs per week, I don't reach the goal until later in January 2009. So I just better get going......

I'm still trying to catch up. We had a very nice holiday weekend, lots of good times with the girls. Stressors still running pretty high but gaining weight is only going to make that worse so no more excuses !!!

Have a great, great day.

    Hang in there. You're doing great, just refocus and start kicking butt again. I know you have the willpower and drive to do this. Now DO IT!

    Hey, Deb, that's hilarious - you and I BOTH are revisiting our goals today - you JUST missed my new blog post when you commented on yesterday's. :) And yes, thank you, the fish was YUMMY. And I only ate a little bit, which is a good thing! Now, if only I hadn't eaten the other things - chocolate chip cookies come to mind ...

    "Me too", as far as reaching my goal by my original target date - it's just not going to happen, because I've allowed myself to get side-tracked way too often over the past 6 months. Now, though, I'm trying (yet again) something slightly different: focusing on TINY mini-goals - maybe that's the trick for me.

    Speaking of mini-goals: you're ON, girl, for that 5k race on Friday! Sheesh - you're shooting for 39 minutes and you've got a blister to deal with? Okay, I'll be the one trying to psych you all out by screeching: "Ooooh, just look at that hottie in the tight shorts, see, Christine? And Deb, just LOOK at those sparkly lights in the sky! And MrsHoneyC, I think I see a water fountain right over there, past that boulder, yes, a little bit further into the bushes, see??"
    (Since I'm not FAST, I've got to try using distractions on all the rest of you!)

    Even if you have to delay the date of your goal, remember that reaching the goal is the point! Sometimes dates and numbers just get in the way of making a life change. So you won't meet goal X by day Y; but you know what, when you get to day Y, you'll still feel better than you've ever felt, because you are on your way to your goal!

    You can do it, hun! It's hard, and motivation will lag, but you can reach your goal!

    Good luck!
