First of all I want to saw a HUGE thank you to those of you who read my blog and leave lovely messgages. It really means a lot that you take time out to see what ive got to say, I appreciate it I really do. Well after Saturdays WI- I am officialy 2 stone heavier than i was this time last year - but the way I look at it unless I sort myself out now ill be back to where I started this time next year.
So over the week ive gone back to basics -
1) Planning my meals
2) Wearing my pedometer
3) Drinking my water
5) Most of all FOLLOWING THE PLAN
I have spent some time thinking about WHY I joined back in OCT 2007.... my daughter LILY-ROSE. She is reason I wanted to loose weight to start with, I wanted her to have a healthy mum who could look after her an be around throughout her life. Then I came up with a idea that I thought would help me along in weak moments (lets be honest it isnt smooth sailing!), I researched lots of inspirational quotes and wrote them down on small pieces of paper. I will carry those around with me and read them when nesscessersary.
Here is a poem/passage that I found -
Don't Quit -
When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, 'You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow.'
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
If you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the struggler's, when loosing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!
I really liked it! Here are a few more -
You may delay but time will not...
You must think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be...
You body keeps an accurate journal regardless of what you write down....
If you always do what you always did - you'll always get what you always got...
Nothing tastes as good as THIN feels...
My life tomorrow will be a result of my attitudes and the choices I make today...
Your body is the baggage you must carry through life. The more excess baggage the shorter the trip....
A year from now, you may have wished you started today...
Gluttony is an emtional escape , a sign something is eating US...
Dont sacrifice your future for a momentary pleasure...
Sorry there are soo many but I couldnt choose which ones to post..
Take care fellow WW'ers...
