Striving for weight loss

Postby STRIVE » Tue Sep 30, 2008 11:25 am

Hello everyone,

Thanks for clicking in. I have actually already started my weight loss journey and have been quite pleased with my progress. I have actually been contributing to a daily post in the 'weekly challenge' forum, however I have found that this topic area is probably better suited to what I need.

I have been working hard at my weight loss for a week now. I'm aiming to loose about 10-15 kg. A week ago I weighed myself at 77kg and seem to have lost 2kg over the past week. I'm really wrapped with that result although I know that it is almost impossible to maintain a 2kg weight loss every week. I have completely changed my eating habits (maintaining regular meals which are portion controlled and cutting out my snacking on junk food). I am also working hard to do at least 30 minutes of exercise a day. I am also making sure I carry a water bottle with me at all times.

So once again, thanks for clicking in. I think this website is terrific for people who want to loose weight and I look forward to hearing from some of you. I'm really keen to keep this post like a daily diary and to be honest and open about my experiences. Feel free to offer advice or suggestions if you have any that have worked for you.

Best wishes. XOXOXOX
:D

Well yesterday I had a good day. I ended up going into the city to do a bit of shopping. It's amazing how much walking you really do find yourself doing when you hit the streets to shop. I was probably shopping for about two hours so I figured that it covered my cardio workout for the day. My weight loss journey has been the greatest so far. I'm really surprised how dedicated I have been and resisted the urge to splurge. I decided to reward myself with a new pair of shoes! ha ha ha ha

Hi Strive

Well done on the loss and cutting out junky snacks. I think 30 mins of exercise a day is an attiainable daily goal to STRIVE for :) and something you can easily fit into your lifestyle.

Shoes as a reward is so much more fulfilling than food and will keep you happier for longer than a chocolate bar or whatever your naughty food crave may be.

Good luck with your weight loss journey.. look forward to reading the updates..

Well yesterday I had my first terrible day. I fell off the wagon. I'm feeling really disappointed in myself.

As I look back I can see there was a fork in the road. I could have continued on my good weight loss journey or travelled down a path that I shouldn't have. It started innocently enough as I decided to share a BBQ meal with the family. I said to myself that I would have a very small piece of steak and stock up on the salad. Well I did that, however, I then got stuck into the pasta salad and found myself going back for more and more and more. Then I had to have a biscuit but then found myself going back for more and more and more. ARGH!!!!

So now I'm feeling terrible. I feel like all my hard work has been a waste of time. AND because I have had a taste of my overindulging ways I feel like I want to go back to that again. I can hear those terrible voices in my head 'why deprive yourself of such nice food?', 'maybe overindulging once in awhile is not so bad', however I know that if I take that attitude I'd be overindulging more than not!

So today I'm going to try and get back on this bloody horse and continue my weight loss journey. ARGH !!!!!!!!

I think I need a bit of a kick up the backside. I'm starting to slip backwards. Today I had a better day than yesterday, however, I still didn't resist a few items I should have. I weighed myself again today and it seems that I have put on a kg. Why is it so easy to put weigh ON and so hard to take it OFF? I guess it will be one of those mysteries. I'm not too sure how often I should be weighing myself but I'm always so curious and feeling like I should have those instant results that we are all seeking.

Tomorrow this is my plan -
Get back on the water. Drink, drink, drink.
Go for a run/walk. Push myself further in the running than previously.
Get back into the healthy eating. Remember that results dont happen over night and not to be put off.

Thanks.

Well I did it....kind of. I have improved compared to the last couple of days, however, I can still see where I can improve even more.

I'm still really keen to binge eat though. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to stop binge eating? ? ? ? ? ?

I'm feeling like I'm on the edge.

I have some bad news, I can feel myself slipping. I'm really trying hard to get the motivation back that I had a few days ago but I'm finding it really tough. Does anyone have any great motivational tips?
