Renewal is Good!!

This was a truly great week.

With the renewal last week of my committment to my journey to a healthier, happier me,  I made sure that I stuck to the plan, and was rewarded at weigh in yesterday!

One of the things that we had been reminded of in our WW meeting last week was...
If you bite it, write it!
If you snack it, track it!
If you nibble it, scribble it!
If you drink it, ink it!

I really tried to focus on this and wow was I amazed at how easily things went into my mouth.  Every time I put something into my mouth I wrote it down.  I even went as far as taking something out of my mouth (before I chewed on it LOL) because I knew I didn't want to write it down.

Anyway, I tracked, I stayed within my points, drank my water, and drank, and drank...(and peed and peed and peed).  I didn't get in much exercise, but I was still very happy with how I felt during the week.

Weigh in wednesday morning was a wonderful reward.  I was down 9.6lbs!!!! Now, I know that I have to take into account that I had gained a total of 6lbs in the previous two weeks, but still almost 10lbs?!!  Awesome!

I am hoping to reach my 25lb and my 10% (28) goals at my next weigh in.  Adding the exercise in this week and making sure I keep tracking, watching, will hopefully get me there!

I am very thankful that I have renewed my committment, and am ready to keep going!

Renewed Committment

The other day I was reading one of the weight loss blogs I visit on a fairly regular basis.  I have to say that it was just what I needed to read.  I have to say thank you to Jack

I have renewed my committment to me and my journey.  I went to my WW meeting on wednesday with a better attitude.  I knew I was going to be up AGAIN, but I had already made the decision to get back on track, and knew that no matter what the damage was, I was not going to let it change that attitude.

I finally decided that if I really want to lose this weight, get healthy, be a better mom and wife, enjoy my life etc, etc, then I had to get serious.  I have been so lazy about it this time and I just don't want to do that anymore. 

I know that I can do this.  I AM worth it.  My family is worth it!!

So, here I go!  Do you need to renew your committment?

I just finished submitting my entry form for the first "season" of Win, Lose, or Blog
I am really hoping to be chosen as a participant. 
I have been coasting these last two weeks. 
I have let myself get off track, which has resulted in gains. 
I don't want that to be my story anymore. 
I want to be accountable. 
I am ready to work hard. 
I want to encourage others to work toward their goals. 
I want to show my boys that if you want something, you need to work hard at it. 
If you work hard at it, you can accomplish great things. 
I have a long journey ahead of me, but today is a new day, and I choose to take steps forward.

If Life Gives You Rocks....

There is a quote that goes something like this....
If life gives you rocks,
whether to
build a wall
build a bridge.
I have no idea who wrote it, but I thank my sister for sharing it with me.
I have come back to this quote several times this week. Life will always give you rocks of some sort, and it is your choice what you are going to do with them. But I started thinking about how that applies to my weight loss journey.

When something comes up that upsets me, or changes my plans for the day, derails my exercise attempts, or knocks me off track, all ROCKS, what do I do with that? Do I allow them to become a wall, stop my progress, and stop my journey?

Do I CHOOSE to build a bridge that will get me back on track and back on my journey?

Off Track

I get very frustrated with myself.

For two weeks running, I had good results.  Then....

for some reason I allow myself to let it go.  Why?

I have not been tracking what I eat....which I know keeps me on track.

I have not been exercising.....which I know I need to do.

I have been eating things I shouldn't......which I know leads to eating more...and more.

I have been allowing those things to cloud my mind....which I know gets me even further off track.

Then I get frustrated.

Then I get disappointed in myself. 

Then it perpetuates the issues.

What do you do to stay focused and get yourself back up when you fall?  I could use some help.
