Chims. I know all too well how frustrating it is. I hope you pop back in here. I'm not here as much as I should be, either. Lately I've bene talking a lot to my SIL. She lost a lot of weight on medifast and is now a health coach through them. I've gotten some ideas and recipes that are helping the journey get back on track. Don't give up!! You're worth it!!!!
Hi Becci! Thanks so much for your words of encouragement, they mean a lot to me. For some reason I always do better with this weight loss thing when I have support from others, so thanks for being such an awesome friend
I don't know much about medifast, will have to look it up. I did really well on SBD and liked that it was something I could easily do for life. I just need to do it lol
So the other morning I decided to step on the scale "just knowing" that the #'s were going to make me cry. I stepped on it FOUR times before I believed what I saw, I'd lost a good 8lbs from the last time I'd stepped on the scale. I was SHOCKED and it felt soooo good!! It made me realize that yes I can do this b/c if I can lose 8lbs w/out even trying then I can lose another 8lbs while trying! lol This weekend hasn't been all that great but really it's not been awful. I plan on jumping on my treadmil come Monday morning & my goal is to work out Monday through Saturday, 3 of those days for 30-45 minutes, the others my goal is to do at least 20. I need to purchase some weights I quit going to the gym b/c they kept jerking me around so I need to build up a little "mini gym" here at my house. I'm so excited to start losign again. My goal is to be UNDER 200lbs before Isabelle's 1st birthday ~ I have 25lbs to go!
They srsly are they best, aren't they!? LOL Man, if I could only lose 100lbs w/out trying, ha ha.**********Yea, I'll need to keep that in mind too b/c I know, that even though I KNOW it's going to happen I'm going to be annoyed until it drops again LOL I can be so impatient sometimes!**********Go give your treadmil some lovin's lol I plan on doing so tomorrow, I'm actually really excted to start this again, I'm SOOO ready to start feeling good again no more of this over weight crap! My anxiety & panic attacks have returned again too and I KNOW I can get them to go away w/ exercise & eating well, so that is probably my biggest modivator right now aside from my goal of being under 200lbs by February.*********Also, I signed up with the POBLC again ~ modsquad, yay!!
oohhh and one more thing. I REALLY need to get rid of this blasted Halloween Candy lol Oddly enough, I'll have a mini candy bar here n' there but for the most part I have no interest in it, I also have yummy ice cream in my freezer and I'm just not going for it. Not that I'm complaining or anything! I think part of it is chocolate (other than dark) can sometimes ad to my anxiety & I'm trying to eliminate everything that might trigger it. Still candy.needs.to.leave. lol
45 minutes on the treadmil, eating well & getting my water intake in. Today has been a good day for day one ~ in every other aspect it's been a challenge, figures eh? LOL Oh well, can't have your cake n' eat it too ~ but so far so good! It feels good & it feel exciting to be active again.
I survived day one, I feel like just by making it through that day I'm headed in a good direction. Since having Isabelle I've really struggled with getting even 1 good day in, so this is deffinitley a step in the right direction, so yay!!
I plan on doing 20 minutes on the treadmil and then I'll be heading off to playgroup. Tuesdays tend to be my crazy days so it's nice to have an easy laid back day today.
I've not stepped on the scale yet either, I normally obsess over it but I'm hoping to hold off until Friday morning. We'll see how far I get! LOL
Thanks hun & yes being held accountable is totally what makes it or breaks it for me.
