Fighting the Good Fight

Saturday, August 15, 2015

Good lord it has been challenging the last week and a half probably. I swear when you decide to make a change in your thought life for the better (any change in your life for the better actually) it seems things come from out of nowhere to get you off course. I have to talk to myself constantly. Not necessarily out loud, but sometimes yes! Lol.

I am human so I don't so called 'do right' all the time. I wish. But I am more aware and catch myself when thinking negatively more often. It is also nearing TOM and we (women) all know how our emotions get during this time. I have felt depressed, hopeless, like 'who cares?', etc. all in a given day. Those are just feelings, which are motivated by thoughts. So I have had to work really hard but I haven't passed all the tests. I've gotten irritated very easily by those around me and just in general. It lets me know I need to fill myself up with positive things whether a book, or something honey! Lol!

I also didn't make the best food choices this week but I still lost 2.2 lbs and got out of the 230's! Yay!! I am just eating less. Really nothing else at this point. And I don't mean starving myself b/c I don't believe in that. Just eating less. Period. But I just had to vent that this is not easy! This whole 'change your thoughts, change your life' thing. It is a constant battle in my head. And I may lose some battles, but I will win the war! :)

    Are you eating low carb? That really helps and keeps you from eating too much and keeps you from getting hungry.

    Just being mindful of your needs is a huge plus and you are doing that!! And getting into the 220's is a big milestone!! Revel in it and be determined to never see 230 again!!!

    My mantra is "IS IT WORTH IT???" when I am tempted to eat off plan. It is a fight but one that can be one!!

    Keep up with your focus, you will be in ONEDERLAND real soon!!

    Congratulations on the weight loss!!! Fabulous.

    Hormones suck, I know it is difficult. I tend to veer from psychopathy to a weeping mess a million times during the run up. Plus I get hungry, I get really hungry. The only thing I have found that works for me is to meditate, exercise and drink water. In combination they calm me down, makes me feel more positive and then I don't feel that hungry.

    Hope that helps a little, once again fantastic news on the weight loss!

    Well done on the weight loss this week.

    I need to find myself a more positive mindset, I find myself being irritated to extremes by small things and letting them get to me, I need to be a calmer person.
