Congratulations again to everyone!! Last weeks commitments were great!
I really need to make and keep my commitments this week. I just spent all weekend with my sister-in-law, "malibu barbie", so I am feeling especially whale-like!! Not to mention that she is 3.5 months pregnant, has absolutely no visual signs of it.... but is already complaining about pregnancy weight (and has been since day 1). Uuuuggghhh!! Needless to say I have no sympathy.
So anyhow, I am totally motivated to see some movement on that scale!! Here are my goals for the day:
I will drink all of my water
I will get on the treadmill (NO EXCUSES)
I will plan healthy meals for the week
I will play "more actively" with my son (fewer books, more 'wrestling')
I will continue to read "You: On a Diet"
I will get one day closer to giving malibu barbie a run for her money
I will take my vitamins
I'm also going to throw in a weekly goal
My weight ticker will move this week!!
Okay ladies..... best of luck for the day!! Post your results... I'll be excited to see how everyone does!!
I will get up when the alarm goes off and go for a walk rather than hitting the snooze button and dozing for the next hour.
I will eat a proper healthy breakfast rather than a handful of dried apricots
I will make a healthy lunch
I will not buy any food from the cafe at work
I will drink the whole 1.5L of water that's in the fridge.
I will limit myself to 2 cups of coffee all day
Well, that's enough to be going on with
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Being accountable is going to help me stay on track today:
I will only eat my calories for the day
I will stay out of the kids snacks
I will drink some water today
I will eat breakfast at home..no MickeyD's today!!
I will look at the big picture and not what I want in the moment
This is my second day back on track and this is also where I had failed every time for the last 7 weeks. I will make it back today I will make it back today.
Malibu Barbie, that is too funny. I just love us, love us I tell ya.
Anyway, as it turns out I had a REALLY good week last week. Today, my weigh in day - I'm down 5 lbs. from last week. I haven't seen those numbers in a while. So let me just say goodbye and good riddance to the 230's. May I never, ever, ever see your ugly face again. If you need to pop up some where go find some NBA or NFL player, you are not, I repeat not welcome in my home ever again!!
As for today's commitments:
I will stay within my calorie allotment, no nibbling
I will exercise no matter what
I will drink plenty of water
I will remember that I made it through the weekend with having guests over and I still didn't overeat and how absolutely great that felt.
And I'll remember how darn good it felt when those said guests complimented me on my weightloss.
I will remember that I want to be thin more then I want food.
Good luck everybody!!! We can all do this, we really, really can. Talk to you later.
My commitments have seemed to work. My weigh in was today and I am down 3lbs! Woo-Hoo . Gotta keep this up. All the encouragment on this board has really helped me.
I will relish my success so far, but not use that as an excuse to overeat!
I will stay within my points.
I will do some kind of exercise, no matter how tired I am when I get home!
I will drink my water!
Rockinrobin - A 5lb weight loss?! That's AWESOME!!! I love your commitment to remember how good it felt that your weekend guests complimented you on your weight loss. Just imagine how in awe they will be when you reach your target weight!
Mookiemunchkin - Down 3lbs?! Congratulations!!!
DramaQueenLucy - This is a new week. I know you will make it passed the two day mark! You are stronger this week and you are going to make your New Years Goal!!
Nicolen - Reading your goals made me think I should limit my coffee too. I drink way to much!! My son is my alarm clock... but I have to start getting up before him so I can exercise first thing.
Charbar - I'm with you on the healthy snacks! Chocolate is my weakness too. Right now I'm not letting any holiday candy enter the house, and I'm really limiting my holiday baking.
Wow you ladies are incredibly motivating and i would love to join you and share my commitments.
I will eat what I brought for breadfast and lunch
I will not purchase any junk from the cafeteria or vending machine
I will exercise Monday thru Friday this week
I will stay away from the pop and only drink water
I will stay within my calories for the day
I love seeing so many people here making commitments!! Woo hoo! I weighed in this morning and I lost 11 pounds this week. Gulp. It had to be because I was as swollen as the Staypuft Marshmallow Man when I started. It's weird, but I feel like I'm breathing super clearly now, I'm moving easier, and I don't feel at all puffy (we'll other than the fat).
I kept my commitments for yesterday substituting time on the eliptical machine for walking. That thing is so hard. Kudos to any of you that use one regularly for long periods of time. I thought I'd pass out after 7 minutes!!
So here are my commitments for today:
I will continue to eat healthy foods.
I will clean the house today because when my house is tidy I feel better about myself.
I will get back to walking tonight.
I won't feel bad if the scale doesn't move for a few days because it's unrealistic to expect my current loss to continue.
CLCSC145, all right I just posted on the weigh - in thread, but I"ll say it again - I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!! My third or 4th week I had a 9 lb weightloss, the week prior to that I had a 1 lb weightloss. Three weeks in a row I had 2lb weightlosses and now a 5 lb. This weightloss stuff is really strange. But those weightlosses propel us to keep on going. Before you know it you and people will start noticing and that will propel you even further. Keep it up!!!! Everybody tells me I should try the elliptical, but I am TERRIFIED of it. So good for you, seven minutes sounds like a great start, wish I could.
Angel, I'm so glad you found us!!!
Mookie congrats on the 3 lbs.!!! And yes we can do this, we really, really can!!!!!
You hear that everyone WE CAN DO THIS!!! FOR REAL!!!!
Good morning everybody!!! I hope everybody had a great day yesterday and an even better day today. One day at a time, make everyday better then the one before. One day at a time, make everyday better then the one before. One day at a time, make everyday better then the one before. Maybe if I repeat it enough I can really start living that way. Hmmmm? But no really that's what it's all about.
I pretty much stuck to plan yesterday, maybe 100 calories more then I should have, I could have eaten a bit less at dinner, but nothing terrible.
I will stay within my calorie range.
I will not nibble.
I will not overeat at dinner because I did so well during the day. Doing well during the day is NOT, I repeat NOT an invitation to overindulge at dinner.
I will drink loads and loads of water.
I will look at my horrendous BMI and that will remind me just how much I really need to do this. No fooling around.
I will exercise at least 30 mins.
I will remember that I want to be thin more then I want the food.
Have a great day everyone, filled with good choices.
