Ever get to that point where the scale just WONT move??? How frustrating is that? For tappers, here ya go ~ "Even though I'm often frustrated when looking at the scale, I choose to remain focused on my outcome".
Today, I got on the scale FULLY clothed and it was down to below where I was totally nekkid!!! YAHOOOOO!!
Really been getting some great awarenesses while out walking, in the shower.
Last night in class, one of the women said "It's harder to lose weight when you get older".
That's what I've found. I've gained before yet, eliminated SO easily by just moving more which gave me the awareness that I want to eat better. Now, one thing I've found is that many people use the fact that they ARE moving (i.e. exercising) as an EXCUSE to eat/drink more.
When I use to go the a bodybuilding gym, one morning I heard a few of the members talking about going out drinking that night. I said, "wait! You come here, workout, then ruin all the benefits by going out drinking?" I was told that's WHY they train ~ so they can drink and eat anything they want. Umm, o.k. Doesn't work for me yet, not my body.
Now, the other women in the group told me that they were chubby as children so for them, it's doubly hard yet, they're eliminating as well as others in the group who've gotten heavy as they got older.
In my case, it was after getting married. (So, the thing here is don't get married.
No, really. What happened was, I wanted to snuggle in bed with him rather than get out and MOVE as I did before we got married; we went out and ate (and overate) a LOT AND, started businesses so, spend a LOT of time in front of the computer. At night, we tended to snuggle while watching videos OR, go out and eat more!
We got in the habit of eating, not for hunger, yet because we were together....
The reason I started doing the "Tap Into Your Ideal Weight" program is because I now KNOW how hard it is to eliminate weight; break the habits we've created to comfort or reward ourselves; acknowledge and eliminate the fears we have of who we'll be when we eliminate the excess weight; feel confident in ourselves when we're out socially so that we can enjoy interaction with others while maintaining a conscious food program without guilt, without frustration, without all the other emotions we've wrapped around food. Exciting, isn't it???
Here's one more thing ~ I know it seems a long time to wait ~ and many will not ever have to wait as long (actually, wait isn't the correct word as I was not in a "holding pattern" waiting for this to happen) as I to find something you are TRULY passionate about yet, since I found and founded this program, I have to say, it's something I am TRULY passionate about and SO excited! I live it! I think about it constantly. How can I improve it? How can I share it? Who can I share it with? How important is this to just one person's health?
Enough for now ~
