Getting Started….again

September 9, 2009

I have nothing great to report. I’ve continued my downward spiral this week. Ugh! I’m so disappointed in myself. The hardest part for me in loosing weight is always the getting started part and I’ve slacked off so much lately I really need to begin again. The one good difference between now and 3 months ago is that I am down 20lbs.! I get to begin with 20lbs. gone already.

OK, OK I can do this. One step at a time. Let’s take it easy, nice and easy steps. Let’s make a goal for tomorrow. I will be on plan tomorrow. No eating out, no junk food. I’ll journal and blog my meals. If I do this I will give myself a shiny gold star!

Already I’ve broken my goals for this week. We had a movie night and then the next evening a poker night. There was cookies and chips and pop and pizza…. I had no self control. I’m feeling pretty discouraged today. I am wondering what happened to the resolve I had a few months ago to loose weight. I want to know how I can regain it.

The month of July was the endless guest month for me. Each week we had someone new staying over. It wasn’t planned, it happened rather spontaneously. It was great spending time with them and getting a chance to catch up but it was a hard month for me.  It felt like the party that wouldn’t end. I longed for my normal routine, I craved quiet time and I missed just being with my hubby and boys. God gave me the strength to get through July. He taught me how to love more. Because of God I can report that July was an amazing and fantastic time, a challenging time but a month not to be forgotten. Guess what….? July is over!!!! *does the happy dance* Everyone has gone home and I look forward to life returning to normal around here.

I did a little experiment last week. I wanted to see if I could loose weight without journaling every little bite I take, to not count point. I’m not sure how I did. I ended up loosing 1 lb for the week. Now this is a loss but the question is could I of lost more if I had journaled and counted points? I’m going to test this another week. I really feel like I am in control of what I am eating right now. I ended up weighing myself a lot more this week just to make sure my weight wasn’t going up. I’m willing to continue counting points but I’m just curious to see if I really need to.

So what does this mean for my blog? Well next week I won’t be taking pictures of my meals and posting them but I am going to check in each day and talk about how the day went. I’m still very committed to loosing my weight and I love that this blog acts as a record of my journey.

OH! and one more thing….I have discovered I love avocados! I had an avocado once when I was a child and decided I hated them. This week I cut up some along with some cucumber slices. Oh man, avocado is heavenly. It’s my new favorite food. I know it’s a food I need to have in moderation but still I’m in love with it.

Alrighty that’s all I have to say for today. I’ll keep you updated on the progress of my little experiment this week.
