LA Weight Loss - I joined,&wrote my promise letter to more 2x-3x clothes again.

06-26-2006, 10:04 PM
I would really like to thank the 3chicks for this board, and to all of you that have posted answers to my questions this week..:hug: I'm sure there will be truck loads more...
However, and most importantly, I have put my checkbook where my mouth is,and did the plastic today..
I have my jug of juice,and a frig.filled with raw veggies.
My mind is made up,and I am going for this ride full speed ahead. :cool:
I know,and am fully aware that it's up to me..everything I choose to do,eat,follow...or not do, is all about the choices I make. Do I want fries,or a 2lb.loss..? Make the decision..
Do I want to live and die in a size 2x,3x or more?,or do I want to go to the gym,kick some butt (mine)and stick to the program?...My decision..
I can whine,whine,wine & dine,and give anyone here and everywhere a whole bunch of excuses..and they would be real reasons..but I still have the last decision,the last say in what I choose to put on my plate,and in my mouth. It's my decision.
I promise to own it,because if I don't it would be like giving away "my power",my word.
Not now or ever again. I need to declare this in a public place,not just to myself when I'm lying in bed,and telling myself that tomorrow is another day,and I'll do better..
and then tomorrow comes and cheezburgers call my name. No more. No more will food dictate to me,be my feel good lover, more. If I have a problem(s)I know that even though food makes the pain easier to take for about doesn't solve the problem,and only gives me another one. I will not use food to fill in lonliness,heartbreak,bad decisions,or any other feeling,situation(s) that life gives me.
I will not use food in any other way than to fuel my body,with respect,to enjoy,and to get to a healthy place,and stay healthy. Food is not the enemy, it's how I've used it in the past.
That has been a poor decision on my part. This I must change.
I promise this to myself, I will make better decision from now on.
To assure this,I will read this declaration,this promise,this script to myself daily,and or whenever I'm tempted to say scre* it,and eat non-healthy.
Heathly is my middle name,because I deserve to feel better,
To look my best,and I owe it for my selfrespect.
I will not say wish me luck,because it's not about luck. I will not say I will try,because that leaves me a way out.."Well,I tried"...What I will say is I commit to doing this,to achieving this success,and all for me..
how's about that..
something this fabulous,this wonderful that I'm doing for my own self.
Thanks,and big-hug.:cool:FOCUS~

Focus- Thank you so much for sharing your letter with us. I have not doubt that you can and WILL succeed. I am glad that you are going to share the ride with us!

That is some pwerful stuff, there! Be sure to print copies and hang them in lots of places for you to see! Where at in Washington are you? Maybe we're neighbors?

That is an amazing statement! I too believe that its going to work this time. I truely can not believe, even though I've only lost 27lbs, how great I feel. Just by working out, my legs are stronger, I walk with a stronger step, swimming is easier, and I just feel soo much better!

Keep up the positive reinforcement! Unfortunately, I'm coming donw with a cold and didnt get to be POP today, but I was close!

What an amazing letter. You can do it and so can we all!

One word.


06-27-2006, 11:25 PM
Wow,thanks everyone..appreciate the good vibe,and glad to spread mine around especially when it's the gung-ho variety.
Almost finished with the first day juice thing..It seems to me that i ate more than usual,of the right/recommended stuff,but was hungrier than usual..wonder why that is..oh well, if I have to be a little hungry then so be it. Nothing worth much is a freebie. I do know that i'm not going to be watching the Food Network much anymore..why torture myself.I think my stomach is directly attached to my eyes. After I reach a personal goal,I'll make a date with some pasta,but first I must do some of the work. Tomorrow I go in for some kind of assessment,& do the 2nd day juicer,and also get the diet bar pitch..I was thinking today that I might buy a box..but I'm not buying the whole hundered$$ pkg. I may do the luna bars,or whatever for those 'moments' when I just have to put something in there,or else. I do notice that right around 3-4pm I get maybe then...OR like last night when DH went and got himself a big fat bowl of ice cream,so I went to bed.I may be getting more sleep out of this.
Couple of questions...what is pop?
and still unable to access that weight tracker thingie...i get to the very end of the choosing part,and then I must not do something right.
Did the gym yesterday,weight machines,and treadmill...will do that again tomorrow. Take care,we're worth it. Focus~

Focus - when you get your actual food plan, believe me, you won't feel hungry!! I felt (and still do feel) like I am constantly eating, and this is way more food than I have ever eaten! Doing the TO juice was probably the hardest part of the plan. Let us know how today goes for you! :)

06-28-2006, 08:55 PM
4 1/2 lbs.gone! It may be water,but it sure feels good,and most importantly keeps me turned up,and tuned in. Thanks alot for being here!

06-28-2006, 09:14 PM
Congrats, Focus. Keep going and be strong!

06-29-2006, 10:17 AM
WTG--focused! Every pound (or in my case ounce!) is the motivation to continue.

06-29-2006, 10:58 AM

focused - i found where you posted your question and I have copied the answer here for you from Debbie:

Ok focus, here goes. I usually open up the edit signature box first, then minimize that and you should be back in the LAWL forum. That's what it means to have 2 browsers open or 2 webpages. One you are looking at and one is minimized or behind the current page.
You can click on anybody's ticker and it will take you to that website. If you are going to use the 3FC ticker- input the info, pick your background and your slider. Check it over to make sure you like it, if you do then you want to highlight everything in the first box. Most of the time when you just click on the box, the first time the whole box will get shaded if not Hold down the button on the left side of your mouse an go over the whole box. Then you right click and click on copy. Now you are going to bring back up the edit signature page- You are going to go down to the signature box and get you cursor blinking and then left click on your mouse and go to paste. You should have all kinds of numbers and stuff in there. Then you can add anything else like your name or a quote or whatever you want. Then you can click on preview signature and see if you like it. If you do the you click on save signature and you are on your way
You can also go to I like this one cuz it goes by oz. where the 3FC goes by full lbs. I think that you can go to too.
If you go to you pick your background and slider first and then put in your weight and how you want it displayed last. On that one you copy the first box and follow the rest of the directions. Hope that helps. Don't eat out of frustration and please don't hurt the little mouse.
