Look out .....here comes March

Sunday, February 28, 2010

Can you believe it's going to be March 1st. tomorrow...
Wow the third month already.....Where does the time go..

My goals for March:

eat healthy ..plan all meals and snacks
exercise each day..find new and fun ways to burn calories
find new ways to reward myself.
be kind to myself and be proud of myself.....

I was watching Carnie Wilson today, she too has a show about your struggles with weight and alcohol...one thing I noticed in the few times I watch, she has a lot of excuses why she does what she does.....she feels entitled to not follow her Doctors advice, or even Dr. Oz.
I wonder how many of us feel that way.....thinking I had a rough life, bad things happen to me so I need food or drink or drugs to help me forget my pain.....but one thing she said that stuck a nerve with me was she was 300 pounds and lost down to 150, but gain back to 216 or 218 ..she is frustrated with the news media for making fun of her...she says I'm way better off then when I was 300 pounds.....I agree...


then it hit me...gee I was 347 at my highest and now holding at about 144......and i sometimes feel that is still not good enough...but it is.....I'm not in the new media, I'm not a singer or on TV. But it made me think twice about how proud of myself I should be.....

we all need to remind our selves of where were and how far we have come....it might not be exactly where we want to be but we are still working.....

I do think it's non productive to make excuses ...as I said last night, only YOU can change your attitude and perspective to match your personal reality.....

do you think most people make excuses why they can't or won't reach there goals??


One last thing, today I was 143 on the scale....but it won't let me post that, I have to change my goal weight , which I'm not ready to do...
I'm working on a new plan...I'm having a hard time expressing what it is I want to do...but as soon as I can get it down in words I'll blog...

I'm looking for people who have reached there goal weight but then started a new plan....anyone out there like that???
I think it would be nice if they had a sliding ticker for those of us who are trying to maintain. you know have 5 pound range or 3 pounds....okay I'm babbling now....
I'm going to get ready to watch Ruby on the Style network....

Have a healthy week

Kitt

    Kitt, I really like your goals and that is something I have let slide since the 1st of the year. Thx for the reminder.

    In addition...where ever our head goes, the body follows. I have heard her make all the excuses and I am thinking that is what it really is....excuses.

    Simple but not easy!

    Kitt, you are awesome and this was an awesome blog tonight. I'm glad you're taking some time to become comfortable with the new you -- get to know you as you are now and, and figure out more of what you want to do. And it's awesome that you've lost another pound! Don't make that your focus, however. Learn the lay of the land where you are at the moment. It will give you an idea of where you'd like to go exploring first. Hugs to ya!

    Excuse making seems to be a big thing in weightloss! We can come up with so many of them! Me especially! Hence the change in name this year!!

    You are doing fantastic, Kitt! Keep it going!
