Heaviest Weight Ever! :(

Sunday, August 07, 2011

Hello all,
I have been meaning to check in more frequently. I have been avoiding the scale. I knew it was going to be high because my face and body look very puffy and bloated. It's disgusting. I stepped on the scale this morning to see the highest number I have ever seen" 175.2 pounds. I could not believe it.

Why is it that I can do so well with other things in life yet I cannot seem to exercise and eat right? I am in the process of buying a house and moving and packing is taking up much of my time. It is also VERY stressful on me. I have some fear about going to the gym as stupid as that sounds.

I have been reading a lot about the dangers and side effect of diet pop and aspartame. I am going to try to cut this all out of my diet. I know this will be hard. I rely on diet pop to keep me awake and I am constantly using Crystal Light packets to flavor my water.

My weight is now to a point where I don't want to leave the house. I am too disgusted. All of this (plus the stress with the house) is actually making me eat more. I worry what my weight will be in a week or two if I don't do anything. It just keeps going up and UP!

    there are 3 things to do to get to a healthy weight (or any other battle you may have!)
    1) Declare War. what are you sick of? say it, put it in writing, declare it to your friends and family. write it on your mirror in lipstick so that you see it every morning!

    2)Fight For It. you cannot just SAY you want to eat right and be healthy, you have to move yourself into action! commit yourself to action! you are worth it!

    3)Defend It. once you start down the road to a healthy lifestyle, you have to get up every day and work the program!

    Well, sweetie, you KNOW what you need to do! You NEED to make some quality time for yourself; you NEED to check in to SP a bit more often; you NEED to get exercise (you DON'T need to go to a gym to do that - take a walk during your lunch break - do some little mini exercises during the day - there are lots you can do that won't really take extra time as such); you NEED to make wiser choices with food. If you don't like water, why not flavour it with a squeeze of fresh citrus? Another thing that you need to do is to stop beating up on yourself, and instead become pro-active - you need to DO!

    I KNOW you can do this - you have achieved a lot even tho' you had a lot of stumbling blocks thrown in your way. Why not ake the lead from THAT person and achieve with this, too?

    Sorry to hear the scale is up Thats where I am at too. I will trade problems with you I eat way to little and found out for what I eat I burn way to many calories a day. ;S

    Congratulations on buying a house It must be so exciting to be in a place in life where you can afford a home for your family. Have you tried anything to relive your stress? oh and not that Im telling you what to do But Diet pop is sooo bad for you. Especially diet coke and diet mountain dew. Your better off with a cup of coffee. The last time a lost a bunch of weight (last summer) I was drinking 1 red bull a day in 4 weeks id lost 15lbs. That was the only change i made, i could afford it then and i like how it tastes. But doesn't that strange.... there had to be something else... maybe it was trading the weekly 2liter for a daily smaller something... idk Anyway Now Im babbling! Sorry!

    I hope you can be stress free soon! And that everything goes better! You look great in your pic is that you now? :D

    AS one WEight Watchers leader once told me: this is the last time you will see this number!

    Tell yourself it can only come down from here. It take some time and believe me, lots of bumps in the road, but one pound gone is one pound gone.

    I know how you feel about diet pop. I've been cutting down on it for months now. Usually have one a week but now I've gone 6 days without it and I'm trying to see how long I can go without it. I really like drinking water now!

    Good Luck and stay positive!!

    STOPPP! don't RELY on anything to keep you awake....working out and eating better ..get as much sleep as your schedule will allow..that will keep you awake! (I know..probably NOT what you wanna hear) ...Have you ever thought about working out at home? I don't have a gym membership and I have been doing supreme 90 day and other things...I've done better now then when I ever had a gym membership..and ..no one sees me while I'm doin my thing!!! Don't get discouraged. Find one positive thing out of all this and focus on that! emoticon emoticon emoticon
