Today IS Yesterday's Tomorrow

Profile Information

About Me:
I have experienced many ups and downs over the years and I have been able to push through all of them except one. My weight. I lost a lot of weight pretty easily in 2012. I gained it all back plus some pretty easily in 2013. In 2014 I maintained. The gain.

Along with the gain came health problems like terrible asthma attacks, anxiety, diabetes, and sleep apnea. All of which can be eliminated or significantly reduced if I lose the extra weight.

2015 is almost over and I am not going to lie. I have done very little to address my weight. Don't get me wrong. It's always on my mind. I even have a plan... But it always starts tomorrow. I am sure you can imagine that with a plan like that I don't get very far at all.

Today IS yesterday's tomorrow so I guess it's time to buckle down and work towards ending this year in a much healthier place than I started it in.

Today IS Yesterday's Tomorrow

T Equals Minus Ten Weeks And Counting

Posted on October 24, 2015 at 9:43am 0 Comments

Another two weeks have passed with me putting in little (NO) effort to addressing this weight.  I think about it all the time every day but I just never put anything in place to help my cause.  I am feeling overwhelmed.  I think I am going to focus on trying to lose 25 pounds by the end of the year.  That is realistic. That is  achievable.  That will make a difference.

12 Weeks Away

Posted on October 9, 2015 at 7:30am 3 Comments

That is right my friends.  The end of this year is 12 weeks away.  My new journal also covers a 12 week period.  Coincidence?  I think not!  New goal number one...  Journal something (anything) every day.  I am not going to commit to writing down everything I eat or everything I feel because we all know how that goes.  Basically, I will do good for a week or two, miss a few days in a row, and throw away my journal.  That isn't helpful.  But I know I can commit to writing something each day…


EVERY Day Is A New Day

I am thankful that I have been able to maintain close to a 20 pound loss.  But that just isn't enough.  I have about a hundred more to go.  I seem to be stuck in the "Tomorrow Is A New Day" cyclone.  We all know that the only way to make progress is to make good choices today and to stop waiting for tomorrow to come. 

So here's to today. 

I Can't Say That I Am Surprised...

Posted on September 23, 2015 at 8:39am 3 Comments

So I am fluctuating between 270 and 275.  Most days I am closer to 275.  Although I am not happy about it, I can't say that I am surprised.  Other thank kicking my soda habit (which I am SO thankful for) I have not been able to find any motivation to move on to the next bad habit.  I have stopped working out and we are continuing to go out to eat basically EVERY single day.  It's such a bad habit and it is so expensive BUT we end up ordering takeout or going out to eat almost every…

You can do this! :) I haven't made much friends on here yet, but even with the eleven I have they help me out. Sometimes I just need someone in my corner pushing me when I need it....and picking me up when I fall. I don't have many friends that are supportive in my weight loss. It's refreshing to get on here and blog(vent) about my feelings. I need the support from others and that pat on my back once in awhile feels great. We will get through this journey I know it.

Hi, thanks Lynn. I'm just sitting down this weekend to get my thoughts sorted out. And to find my way around this site.

I am great! I just re-joined Weight Watchers and am really inspired by the new program.  It's REALLY appropriate for the way I like to eat :)

I feel the same as you Lynn, I can not wait to hear about your journey as well, keep your head up and let me know if I can support you in anyway!!!

Hi Lynn, I started on the old program on wednesday. So far so good. I gained back 25 out of 40 pounds and I am mad at myself. But, it's a new day so i'm going forward with a positive attitude. I've already planned out todays meals. I'm looking forward to the support on this blog. Times are tough so i'd rather not spend the money every week, but I do need the extra support.

Hi Lynn. Our stories are very similar! I agree with you about the new plan. I got all the new materials but just couldn't get into it eeither. I'm not sure what my plan is either right now. We can do this though!

Lynn, thanks for the welcome! I'm a perfectionist's a horrible disease, isn't it?? If I could only just give myself a break sometimes, sigh... I'm trying to figure out this BlogToLose thing; hopefully I can get more info up in the coming days...

"12 weeks? Oh my, I sure fell short with my goal to be at my weight loss goal. Time marches on, so I guess I better too. I think a journal is a good idea. I sometimes look back on my own posts here from a year ago just to see where I was & where…"
