Are you yella?

Any fans of 80's movies out there? Specifically the back to the future franchise. There were these moments in the film where the protagonist would have a confrontation with the antagonist and it always ended the same way. Right when cooler heads were going to prevail and the protagonist was about to walk away, the antagonist would call him a chicken, leading to the protagonist to do something stupid.

I am having a somewhat similar situation...

For me, the antagonist is simply everyone else in the world (not that I see the world that way, just for the purposes of this simile), and I cannot stand being called "Big Guy"

I get it, you meant it as a compliment, I HATE IT.

Today I am turning that into motivation. The guy at Costco tonight called me big guy and I guess it stuck in my craw.  So im back at square one AGAIN.

the only difference is...

I'm mad...

and ready to do something about it.

Finding That Motivation

I'm still having issues finding my motivation so I have been reading my old blogs trying to figure out what I did before to get past this, and I came across this blog and remembered my "GED" challenge. I am going to start this back up and I am going to find my weight anchors and put those back around my neck again. Get this thing moving.

Still having issues with my weight, I loose, I gain. So sick of the ebb and flow. I'm starting my count of "Good Eating Days" over again, and challenging myself to 7 straight days to start. What does a "good Eating Day" look like you ask?:
  • Tracking ALL food eaten
  • Not going over my allotted points
  • Not eating after 7pm
  • Eating breakfast
  • Careful snacking in the afternoon
  • The last one is key because I tend to snack a lot while I sit at my desk in the afternoon, vending machine food, terrible. I am going to stick to chewing gum, eating applesauce and drinking water to avoid the snacking.
Well I hope I can do this. I'm wearing my anchor (even got WW to replace them so they are newer looking), I feel super motivated, I need to get more exercise. I just hope I can keep this up and get this weight off. Need to be strict with myself like I was when I started that journey.

FSD: Day 10

Today's Weight: 191.8

Down almost 2 pounds in one day! Still super happy to be on the right track, and today is the last day one detox! I will be spending the day at a festival at Piedmont Park, and have already packed a bag of fruit for my 3pm meal. I am going to the movies later, so I will have to resist the temptation of my usual bag of movie theater popcorn. Sigh, the sacrifices I have to make! Here's hoping I keep up with this downward trend, I haven't been this excited about loosing weight in years.

Be Motivated, Don't Celebrate
So you lost a few more pounds? Way to go! Now, go loose a few more! Too often, we want to celebrate the fact that we lost a few pounds by eating something we have been depriving ourselves of. That should not be our reaction to such good news! If you have been fortunate enough to loose weight, it should motivate you to want to loose more, not dabble in old habits. Smokers don't have a cigarette to celebrate 90 days since the last one, whats the point if you are just going to start the clock all over again. Instead, celebrate while standing in the bathroom staring at the scale, then, decide what it is you have to do to see the same weight or less the next day on the scale, so you can have another mini-celebration tomorrow! Keep your eyes on the prize, when you get to your goal weight, you will be able to celebrate big time! OK, fine, on that day you can have your cake.

What Will I Read Here?

Most of my blogging has to deal with weight loss, if you can tell from the tag cloud above. I didn't want to use my blog to just be like "oh, here is what I did over the weekend," my life isn't that interesting. Instead I began this blog in hopes of expressing a lot of the thoughts I have about my own life and life in general, as well as share a lot of the humerous things I see out on the net including chat conversations. This blog might seem random and all over the place but serves as a great deal of inspiration not only formyself, but it would seem for a few others. If you have come here I hope you are either inspired, or at least entertained. Enjoy!
