Thanks everyone! I did not expect to have any replies! But I am sure glad I do!
I watched a lot of those You tubers and the one that got me going WAS in fact Divaslimsdown! I can't remember the others as I was pretty frantic trying to get motivated yesterday, but I will try and sub to the ones I really liked.
I am not doing any plan at all. I am giving myself 120 days to get healthy. Period! I did not set a weight goal for the time frame either. I need to get my priorities in order first and foremost!
I have an issue with drinking. I just don't want to! But when I did, I was always drinking Soda or Koolaid etc. So the first thing I have done is ONLY drink water. And I have done great. Yesterday I drank 48 oz of water. Which is super for me!
Today I will track all my calories that I eat and do my walk away the pounds video. 1 mile. I can't do more just yet. But I know I will!
I am not going to put a stop to anything I currently eat, but I will make changes to the portion size and how often certain things get put in my mouth.
There was one quote I read that really was motivational for me and helps me. It's going on my inspiration board I keep right next to my desk so I can be reminded all the time of what I need to do.
"What you want NOW, or what you want most?" It's a really simple question, but it really hits deep for me. Is that cupcake really worth the set back or disappointment I will feel when I weigh in? Is it worth my entire workout that I just did?
So, anyway! I have not posted my videos on Youtube yet. I feel too embarrassed. I guess that is an issue I have to work on... I was just about to type "I will post it once I've lost some weight"... Wait a minute. Think about that. If I can't believe in myself for this journey, how can I succeed at all?
I will post my videos at the first weigh in. Good or bad. I have to take some accountablitly. If my videos are there for all to see... people will be watching, and waiting to see how I do. Maybe THAT is what I need.
What do you think?
