So, I started SP on 1/5/09 and have not really lost that much weight. I am not consistent and that is my problem. I start work in two weeks and will wear the largest size ever to a new job. I hope that my embarrassment serves as a reminder that an unhealthy lifestyle will do this.
Sometimes I want to blame my 50 pound pregnancy gain on my new roundish figure, but that is not true. I found a picture of me from 2005, before I was pregnant and I was getting round around the middle then...and I wasn't even pregnant yet. So...the problem is me...only me.
I have a wonderful friend on this website who pointed out this blog to me. It is written by Cassandra_Wynn. She is an amazing person. I have copied her blog here because she mentioned things that run through my head all the time. It just hit home and now it is time to stop bad thoughts and head straight into success.
I have never been called a Diva...but I like it.
Somewhere along the way, I have assumed that I would never be "sexy" again and the proof of that is wearing maternity clothes when you are NOT pregnant. So...I will be a sexy and healthy person...and soon!
Here is Cassandra's blog:
Okay, so Diva’s if you have been struggling this week then I say it’s the weekend now & you need to really focus on what plan you need to come up with for next week & stick with it! It is NOW or NEVER, or you will be here in this same place next August 2010. Do you really want to be at the same place next August still talking about “I need to lose this weight once & for all?” How about we go ahead & get this weight off now that way next year we are focusing on maintaining our weight loss & leading a healthy life!! So I know you have it in you Diva’s, no more excuses on why the scale isn’t moving b/c I know why the scale stopped moving for me. Mine was due to evening excessive snacking on different things that added up extra calories.
I would find myself looking for something to snack on before & after dinner ~ chips, cookies, and cereal, etc.! I thought it was okay to eat 3 cookies, then 20 chips & 2 bowls of cereal b/c I had just worked out for 45 minutes but I pretty much just countered my workout with eating unhealthy every night!! So I had to pin point what I was doing to sabotage my own success & had to decide was I going to stop sabotaging myself? Is there something you are doing to sabotage yourself? If you are consistent with healthy eating & lots of exercise the weight will come off!
YOU can be YOUR best MOTIVATOR or YOUR Worst SELF-DESTRUCTOR!
**DIVA TIP OF DAY**
“So decide to UPLIFT your Body with CONSISTENT Healthy Eating & Exercise!!!! SABOTING SELF+ NO CONSISTENCY= NO RESULTS!!!”
Have a Healthy, Sexy Weekend Diva's!!!
