Posting & Reading

Well I really do try to post daily but it just doesn't happen. Most days I am just too tired to have a coherent thought. Today I caught up on all my blogs - boy there are some amazing people out there! They are doing it!!! I want to be one of you! :-(

One day at a time is not only a mantra it truly does work, but you can get so discouraged when you know you are eating good, exercising and moving more and yet you see no change. Yes I see a change in how I approach food - not scared of it anymore - and I make waaaaay better choices (good choices as Sean would say!) but......

Worry is what I seem to be doing now - worry that I will go back to the junk, worry that my exercise routine is not enough ( cause at heart I am a wimp ), worry my health is going down, worry worry worry.

On the good side I did up my weights just a tiny bit this week, feel a pleasant (sorta) soreness in my muscles this week. No gains Thank you very much! My great neice and nephew are coming for a visit this weekend and I am so looking forward to seeing my little sunshines!

Later Bloggerland and for all of you out there that are doing so well and encouraging us - GOOD JOB! Michelle, Sean, Shane, Dr Fit, Tracy, etc you know who you are!!! Superstars!


  1. You can do it my friend, I'm rooting for you all the way---don't over-complicate this journey...just relax, eat what you like within your calorie budget, exercise--even just a little each day, and when you can, write about how you feel along the way...
    Believe in yourself my friend...You are worth every ounce of effort you're investing. Marinate on that.

    My best always

  2. Lizzy-
    Thanks for the shout out and welcome to the blogosphere. Don't underestimate yourself. Just keep doing what you know you should be doing. Before you know it, it will be habit. I felt the same way at first. That's why I was 3mo in before I started my blog. I didn't have the guts because I was worried that I'd backslide like all the other times. But, the longer I went on the more my mind changed, my body changed and now I know there will never be a return to BEFORE. You'll know it soon for yourself. You have to trust those of us that have done it before you.

  3. What they all said is very nice..

  4. Lizzy,
    You CAN do it, too!!I agree with the Doc, you are underestimating yourself. What you will be doing is building a new history of Lizzy. The new history will be slowly built and recorded right here on your blog. It is a slow, slow process, but every bite of healthy food, ever step, ever bike rode counts in building your new history and creating a stringer YOU!. It just takes time. I now almost 10 weeks-I have lost 12 pounds and holding steady. It is hard to not get discouraged-but my body needs time to build its own history. You can do it. Keep reaching out to bloggerland-we are here to support you as best as we are able. Stay strong, Lizzy! Michele
