Work Pays Off

Tuesday, January 08, 2008

I know, it's amazing. If I actually keep my calories in range and workout every day. Lol' and behold, my weight drops! As soon as I stray, they come back. It's such a simple concept yet one I've struggled with for a long time.

Having such a great team, NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER SURRENDER, really keeps me going and motivated. There are wonderful people on there.

Today I get to do my part on the boat. I will be beginning the staining on the remaining bulkheads. It's exciting, it means we're really close to moving in. This will be a LOT of work today. In addition, I need to somehow scramble up to the Post Office and Bank too, which is a workout.

My goal today is to drink my water and to stay at 1280 for calories today.

I keep reading about these people doing sugar-free streaks on here and I think they're insane. But it's been sticking in the back of my head lately. I am quite addicted to sugar. My brother passed away from diabetes 2 years ago at age 29. Doing a sugar-free streak sounds astoundingly impossible to me but maybe it would be a good thing, too..

    You are so right. The key to losing weight is so simple, yet we all struggle with it. Just look at all the products for a "quick fix" on the market. You can do this, however. So exciting that your boat has come so far. :) It'll be move-in day before you know it. In the meantime, keep hiking around town. Great exercise. As for the sugar free streak, perhaps you should start small. Just do a sugar free day one week, two the next, etc. Before you know it, you'll be streaking! You can do this! You are amazing.

    This is why I love you sooo much, Kyla. ((hugs)) You take the bumps in the road and may get irritated with them..but you just keep on truckin`! And I did not know you have lost a brother, also..I`m sorry to hear that. Sugar IS about the toughest food addiction to concur, but every little bit you reduce from your daily diet, DOES make a HUGE difference. Make yourself little goals. If you eat 100% sugar..then shoot for 90%..then steps, my dear. Baby steps. :)

    You really struck a cord with me today SC. It seems like such a simple thing. Eat right and exersize. But of course life gets in the way....temptation gets in the way....whatever. My problem is that when I am not perfect, I tend to think of it as failure and just give up. That's why I love the NGUNS team so much. If I can learn to get past the bumps in the road, I will eventually find a comfort zone. The support of others like yourself is making all of the difference. Lets be strong.....AND weak together! :-)
