Is it Monday Again?

I need ANOTHER do over! I suck! I admit it! Not even sure I made it two days this time! I would like to give up! I really would, but that would only sink me lower in dispair! Gosh what is wrong with me! I just can not do this!

I really want to get back on program and do it 100%. I thought I could go easy on myself, and just slide into being good a little at a time. But it doesn't seem to be working! I seem to just rebel! I can't even begin to understand why I can't do this in baby steps! You would think it would be easier that way. Maybe I just can't let myself.

Well, for whatever the reason, I am not doing well. Wish I knew if I needed a new program or just motivation. Or something that is easier to stick to right now! Geeeez! Where is my miracle?

I wanna be a loser!

No, not that kind of loser!

Gotta be careful what you ask for around here!

You might want to try carb cycling. It's based on 1250 calories a day. One day your eat low carbs 60 grams the next day high carbs 140grams. It's working for me and I love my carbs. Let me know if you want to know more about it.

Hi Jus Me, Here I am, I'm your miracle! Thanks for the visit to my site. I'm excited to be invited to you and your daughters weight loss blog. Wow, I think it is cool. I like a lot o things about your site. Mine is only a scatter brain rambling about what should be done but not showing a good example. Sometimes I feel like I will be on my way out of this world sooner or later so why try to change if I am happy and contented? (Please don't tell me you heard that.) I want to congrataulate you and your daughter for the goals you two have set to be healthy in weight and at your wellness peak. Truthfully any program works if you work it consistantly. But the key to success is finding the right buddy. What more could one ask for than to do it with a loved one? On 06-29-06 I posted about ENTHUSIASM, See if that helps. Remember a stand still on the scale is a success, an ounce lost is a success, a bad habit changed and replaced with a good one is a success, eat enough of calories to fuel your body or it slows down inside and outside brings on success, a gain can be a success because it makes you aware of what you are doing wrong, and I'll quit taking so much of your room with one more tip. Move, fidget, big deep breaths, and dance to loud music, or exercise if you dare. Love you two and your chubby toes it makes me want to hug you all. Bless you both.

Of course you made it two days, you're still breathing aren't you :)

Just imagine you decide to participate in a 10K run and decide to run at a certain speed, eg, 8 km/hour. Now if you walked 4 kilometers at that speed, then went below 8kms/hr, you wouldn't start over would you? Of course not, because look at what you have accomplished so far.

That's how you have to look at a healthy lifestyle...just because you have a bad patch, doesn't mean you should start right back at the beginning, because that rough patch is part of your life...every day should count, even the frustrating ones! It really does have to become part of your lifestyle, and a lifestyle change isn't only the good days, it's the good and bad. So you'll have a few bad days, then you'll use what went wrong to have fewer bad days. There will always be bad days, but the more you learn, the less there will be.

Think off the fat...thanks for the support. My daughter has long since given up and I am almost to that point, but I keep kicking and screaming! I really do need to get healthy. I have too many conditions that are aggrivated by my present weight. I am not happy nor comfortable this way. I guess I know what I am supposed to do, and what is best for me. It really is a matter of sticking to it! Thank you for reminding me. aND THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT TIPS AND ENCOURAGEMENT ON YOUR SITE.. (NEW KITTY INDUCED CAPS)

Anonymous...thank you for the analagy. I truly have never thought of it that way. And no, I would not go back and start the race over. I will remember this one! In fact, I really wanted to eat right today, but was unable to make it to the store yesterday, so had fixed a bowl of my hubbys cereal for myself, set down to read my mail...after reading your post, his sugary cereal is still sitting here...kinda soggy and I am going to leave early and get something at the store for my breakfast and lunch.

I know the feeling. I was doing the same thing and finally decided to stop and wait until I am ready (hence the sparce blog). It is so discouraging when we find we can't stick to our commitments. So it is better not to make them than to break them. Perhaps you can start small and make a goal you can keep and build on that!

If at first you don't succeed . . .

Try, try again.

And vary your approach if you need to.

An ant can cross a mountain if it doesn't give up and occasionally alters its approach as needed.

And you're no ant.

You're a child of God.

I came across your blog while doing research for The Greg Behrendt Show; a new nationally syndicated talk show premiering this fall. I am currently working on a show topic about the ups and downs of weight loss. We are looking for a variety of stories from people who have tried (successfully or not) to lose weight and how their weight change affects their personal relationships.

The Greg Behrendt Show is a positive, upbeat show looking to push people in the right direction. This is not about exploiting anyone’s story; rather it’s about giving people the helpful advice they need.

If you are interested in discussing your story with me, please give me a call at your earliest convenience. We are seeking not only people who may need help, but also “real-life experts” who can offer advice to our guests. Check out more about our show

I look forward to speaking with you soon. Thank you for your time.
Best Regards,
