Back to the basics and creating structure

Monday, September 05, 2011

I have been back and forth up and down and all around regarding my eating plans. emoticon
DANG if I am tired you all must be about to faint!
One of the leaders of the IOWL team that I am on (but was not active) posted that she was listening to the first 18 podcasts. SHE HEARD MY CRIES!!!! I have been saying this for 2 months but never made it happen. WELL I started back and I am doing the work that I stopped doing and yes when I stopped I kinda lost my momentum.
I fell into a hole inside of my head when I thought that I did not need to continue the inner work. I could just eat right and exercise and I would make my goal. NOT FOR ME!
I have to stay aligned body soul and spirit at all times or this wont work for me.

My Fall challenge on the BL starts on 9/9 and goes for 10 weeks and since I am on week 1 of the podcast this timing is perfect. I will not specifically blog about each podcast here as I have it on my community journal. SO if you are interested I will post the link.

I think I know how I want to approach my plan.
Yes I will continue to eat healthy , I will focus on what it is that I really want to eat vs eating something just because it will fit the criteria of "healthy food"
I will focus more on what is it that I am feeding....hunger, boredom, stress hmmmm
Once I know what I am feeding I will have to come up with alternatives to feeding issues other than hunger.
I will not follow a focused plan as it does not fit my personality.
I will not focus on quick weight loss or getting to that magical number
I WILL focus on my mindset and will take the baby steps necessary to making it happen!
No more rushing the process! Focus on consistency!
I want unstoppable weight loss motivation!!!!

    You know i've been feeling this way for a bit. My losses are nill, my motivation...slim. But maybe just maybe i'm going about this all wrong. I need to work on the inner me along with the outer me. I really do need to start taking this one step at a time. Good luck my friend.

    hi Dimi, please post me the link. I'm back from busy ,crazy Sydney and at home there is so much to do, and my house looks like a disaster area. I have had the al clear from specialist so not sure how to go or what to do, now? i'm back on hrt medication, I still need answers as I know dropping calories and doing more exercise doesnt help me lose weight, its good for 3 weeks and then just stops, and I end up hungry, exhuasted and angry.Looking forward to the challenge hope your well

    Great post. One thing I love about SP is how those who inspire, motivate and become fit do it because they are sparked to find their formula for fitness. Keep sparking!

    I read through your current entries in your community journal. Here is one that resonated:

    Big emoticon moment!!!

    You have to be present in your own life. OMG! That just might be the key to so many things. Are we participants or are we just spectators? What can we do to transform from being passive bystanders or onlookers to taking charge and thus effecting change? And I'm not just talking weight loss.

    You're definitely on to something here. Let's not resign to mediocracy! Let's take charge and make it happen.

    Looking forward to your future revelations :) and wishing you well.

    This is were I am as well. Maybe it is just a natural phase in this journey. I fell into a slump for a while and am now coming back around. I realize the fact that I need structure but understand that I must be the one to build it. I agree consistency is the key. Isn't it nice to have some place to vent, think things through, document your journey and get support the way that you need it?
