trying to reach my goal--- or making myself crazy

Saturday, March 28, 2009

I have 16 weeks before vacation. I'm trying to plan to be at my goal weight by the 18th of July. that means I have to loose 21 pounds in 16 weeks. I will do my best to reach this or as close as I can come.

Share with me what some go ways to do this are.
I need to change up my exercise routine. It really helps to keep it different. I need to eat just a bit less calories but not go over board as we all know if we starve ourselves we just over eat another day.....

My brain just said, why are you doing this to yourself. You have made so much progress if you weigh 166 or 145 you will still be healthy and happy. Everyone will still love you. They will be so happy to see you.
Why do we do this to our selves?????
I need to just keep doing as I'm doing. I have a great plan, I'm looking good and feeling great.....why don't I stick with my plan. Why do those numbers on the scale mean so much to us? Why cant I relax and enjoy my new healthy life style?

Okay now what ...I have two voices in my head telling to get a move on and loose this weight, and one saying keep what your doing your getting there, it might be slow, but slow is not a bad thing......I need to weigh the pros and cons of my situation.....
Darn I just realized I admitted to everyone I talk to myself..... emoticon

This journey is not an easy one. I have days where I just get frantic wondering will I ever get there. Will I ever get to my goal weight?? Does any one really care if I weigh 145 or 166 or what ever? So many questions, so what are the answers??

Sorry this is the ramblings of a over weight 56 year old women wondering what tomorrow will bring and wondering what is the answer to the 100 year old question...."DOES MY BUTT LOOK FAT "

Have a healthy day, do your best, share your feeling with people you can trust. Hug your loved one and be happy no matter what you weigh.

    Oh my goodness, Kitt, I loved this blog! It was so real and so much like the way we all feel. I can hardly wait until this is my reality. Right now it is just a matter of trying to keep to this programeeach and every day. With friends like you, I'm confident it will happen. :) Trying to stay at 1700 or less this week because we are skiing and that usually burns up at least 1000 calories if you are really going for it. I love it!

    Take care and know that we are rooting for you 115% all the way!

    I wanted to see the page of the person who has lost 171 pounds... like you said that is a whole person.
    When I look at myself in the mirror (by the way... I ALWAYS talk to myself) it is hard to reconile the person that I see in the mirror with the person that the scale says. Hard to imagine that I need to loose 60 pounds let alone 171.
    It's an amazing thing you have accomplished, and from my experience, it is NOT easy.

    One of the things I have read about exercise is to get the metabolism going again is to do intensity training. Quick short bursts of exercise along with your regular exercise, or change it up by doing something different.

    Good luck reaching your goal by July. I know you can do it.

    Blessings and peace.

    after much soul searching, I think I just wanted to show them that I was no longer the "fat sister"...I wanted to show them that I am doing a fantastic job.....I wanted to say "see it is possible to reach my goal" but darn all that is true already....
    I don't have to prove long as I'm happy.
    Those negative thoughts just some how creep in when you least expect them....

    A magic wand is my dream too.

    Jules thanks for caring.

    emoticon i can hear both voices in you!!! emoticon

    methinks it's really easy to "want to get there quick" Right Now!!!

    but... i am not sure it's realistic unless you start doing extreme things??? i've always heard the last 10 - 20 are the hardest to lose b/c it's hard to get the deficits you need.

    it's easy to fall back into "diet fast & hard" thinking and patterns, but for me, that always led to crazy making regain all of it plus some more...

    i wonder if it would be better to focus on doing what works and not on the deadline....

    i am sure it will be wonderful to be at goal, but i also hope you will enjoy the rest of your journey while you get there...

    i wish there was a magic wand for this stuff. Hang in Kitt.
