"....I don't know if this is a joke, the part where you ask to answer you back, I highly doubt that you'll answer back and that's why I hadn't done it, but what the heck...
what is the next step you are willing to take that you have not yet?
I am willing to give up whatever that is stopping me from losing the weight that I want to lose (sodas, candy,& junk food,)...I mean I know it's hard but I know I can do it, I've done it before.., and am also willing to exersice 1hour everyday, but it's not as easy, because I usually get bored and sleepy...
*sigh* why does it have to be so hard? and why is it that I don't have the willpower to do it? I am extremely not the girl I used to be, not even a piece of her, now i feel ugly, self-consious, and just sad......can u help me?? :( "
It’s so hard when you can’t see who you are anymore and you’re frustrated with who you are now. It is hard but you do have the willpower. You just have to access it. I’m certain that you are disciplined and demonstrate willpower in other areas of your life and it’s time to make the decision that the current life you are living is intolerable.
1. I just wrote this in the PONR coaching team and I think it’s important to write here. Studies have shown that when it comes to getting to the weight you want, the equation looks like this: 25% is working out and 75% is your food choices. Based on everyone's success I've seen on PEERtrainer, I have to agree with it. This is no way suggests that working out is not important and does not diminish the results and health benefits of working out but I want you to really focus on the food part of the equation if you feel like you're on a plateau or having trouble getting to where you want to go. So I want you to focus on adding one good habit. Get rid of one thing that is “tripping you up” like chocolate or potato chips or something else food wise that you know will help you.
2. If you’re not already doing this, I want you to get a scale and start monitoring your progress. This is not a “nice to have” suggestion. This is a must do. Every week, at the same time, monitor your progress.
3. One of the best tools you have when you’re starting out is to log your food and become familiar with the weight watchers points system. Understanding portion control and portion sizes, what is the reality of how much food you’ve been eating is KEY. Many PEERtrainers are surprised when they actually come to grips with reality and with that comes tremendous hope because they can finally do something about it.
Let me know how you’re doing.
