I had a decent loss this week, but I have to admit I wasn’t on my best behavior. I stopped tracking what I was eating and ended up not exercising from Wednesday on. The exercise was due to a shooting pain that is stabbing me in my left side. I could barely move for four days, but now it seems to be getting a little better. However, the lack of tracking was because I was getting LAZY!
Tracking is extremely important because it not only keeps record of the food, calories and fat I am consuming, but it also makes me accountable for my choices. Accountability is the key to my success. If I didn’t get weighed in every week in front of someone I would never be able to keep myself going. I tend to be a people pleaser so I don’t want to get on the scale in front of that person and have gained. Oh, but this is also a catch twenty-two!
It is just as easy for me to stay away because I don’t want to be embarrassed. I could easily avoid my weigh-ins, fall off the place of the earth and gain all of my weight back. I need to find away to make a happy medium. To be able to want to please people, but not have their thoughts (or what I think their thinking) overpower my emotions. This is something I need to work on not just with weight loss, but also with everyday life.
I am very thankful that I go with someone to these weigh-in meetings. Having someone expect me to show up every week keeps me going. My only fear is that this person is getting close to their goal weight…I hope they don’t disappear on me?! The good thing is I had another friend join recently and I am hoping we can continue to keep eachother on track and losing weight.
I am also thankful that I am writing this blog weekly and posting it on networking sites. Knowing that people are reading it keeps me on track and excited about my next loss. Thank you to my readers!
Support + Accountability + Hard work= Success!
My goal this week is to track everyday! I would also like to get some sort of physical activity in daily. With not feeling good this is not an easy task. The good thing is I now have less than 200lbs to go!
