I am saying "PREPARING FOR THE NEW YEAR" in hopes that I actually do that. I can't believe that we are in December already and that the New Year is just around the corner.
Am I where I wanted to be at this point? Nope! Could I have done more to be in a better place? Yep. What was the problem? One of the things that I can point to as a problem is that I have been experiencing debilitating fatigue! I hurt all over and it is hard to get out of bed (not that I sleep well) and just to move throughout the day.
Now I know that there are some out there that will read that and begin the onslaught of telling me what I need to do. DON'T DO IT! RESIST!
I am going to warn you that I am about do rant here and as many of you know, I don't do that often but I feel I have to get this out.
Since when is it open season on people? Where did people get the idea that it is alright to attack a person for the plan that they decide to follow? Really? What happened to the support and encouragement? There are ways to express concern that isn't ripping people to shreds!
I have seen posts where people have ripped others a new one over the plan that they choose. If a person decides that weight loss surgery is for them, more power to them! It isn't for me but they probably did their homework/research and discussed it with their doctor and their family. Hello...they don't need your approval and most of all, they don't need to be attacked over it. This also goes for people who for whatever reason decided to use some type of product to lose the weight. Again, they probably have done their homework/research etc. etc.
If you can't be supportive, then at least think about how the person is going to feel when you make that comment. We are all here to lose the weight and get healthy. Let's think back to when we began our journey's and how difficult it is and how easily we could be hurt by things that people say to us or about us.
Don't forget that we are not experts because if we were, we wouldn't be here! SP is supposed to be a place of support and encouragement. If we wanted to be attacked or have a new one ripped, we don't have to come here for that. We come here for help! Attacking people isn't the way to help!
Okay....ending the rant now. That is truly my own opinion. I have been on the receiving end of those attacks before and I have seen others get attacked so I know what it is like.
So back to 2014....I am making my chart to track my weight loss and measurements for the next 3 months. My 1st goal is 5% (I am not waiting for January to start) I will have a number to work for when I have my weigh in next week. I have a big goal that I am working on but I am not going to share that right now. I have found in the past that when I share my big weightloss goal (that has a big reward attached) I go into a panic mode and I don't do well so I am keeping it under wraps.
I am going to continue to work with my accountability partner as I feel that this helps keep me pushing. I know that I have been slacking in that area but will be outlining my plan and working out just how I need help. She is good at whipping me back in line! lol
Okay that is all for now!
