My Scale

Ups N Downs N Ups Again

My husband said, "write your blog", "make a post", reach out!  I have had such a hard time writing anything lately, shown obviously by my lack of post.    Here it is "66" days till my return to Fitness Ridge, and as I sit here I have not had the number go down in the last 2 weeks.  I eat good, and see the scale drop a few pounds as it did when I did the jump start with Cinch.  Then I go back and do my best to eat right, and succeed pretty much.  If I was on a maintaining program I would be golden.  But I am still trying to shrug off the pounds that continue to haunt me.  I spoke of this year being the year that I get a emotional understanding of my lifestyle.  Its obvious I can work out and eat right, its been documented within this blog.  Its discovering my pitfalls and reconstructing how I deal with things that I need to work on.

I am taking everything I have learned from my daughter, the Cinch plan and more and am now doing a new program.  For the first time in my life I feel as though I can succeed and work with this for my life!  I will share my information but not till it proves me great success.  All I can say about it right now is that for the first time in my life I am soooooo excited about what I am doing and feel it will keep me from falling into my previous traps during times of stress and anxiety.  I believe that I can live with the structure of what I am doing for the rest of my life, which I hope to be many many decades from now!

I must address my knee problems and try and get moving more.  Going outside is not an option right now with 3 feet of snow surrounding the curbs of my neighborhood.  I have been nagged off the treadmill due to my pain and am trying to gain strength through my elliptical.  I thank those of you that have commented and give me advise, as life is all trial and error.  I think I have learned that I forever am trying to improve on what I am, both physically, mentally and spiritually.

Today I send out this blog post as I struggle to stay in check and improve on myself.  I am a little more than a month away from my first goal of the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame Inductions, and I hope to be in the 160's when I am there.  So starting immediately, I am going to change that word "hope" into "I will" be in the 160's by then.  Thanks for reading, sharing and being patient with me at my time of struggles.  I will come out of this a winner, but I feel it is important to share my struggles too.  And thanks to my husband Alan for pushing me to write today.

Here's to being a more positive person and making it happen!

Thanks Alan !!!!!
I was wondering where you were. The suspence is absolutely killing to find out what your miracle solution/program is. Come on! SPill it out....
After putting the "reaks" on 2 weeks ago, I am now "only" 4.5 pounds over my 2010 FR return weight, 9 pounds over my lowest (Sept 2010). But in the bigger scheme of things still over 25 down from 3 years ago!
I WILL arrive in Utah this June at GOAL.....
Keep blogging. It seems to help you and probably many others...

Thanks Sabine, I will spill the info as soon as I can say it is all that I believe it to be. If it is...with very lil willpower it is something we can all succeed with. I just don't want to jump the gun. Will keep you posted for sure. It's a shame we won't meet this year at FR, but some day maybe???...it definitely happens. Glad you have will instead of hope in you arrival in June!! Thanks for the support you constantly give it really is appreciated.

Go cat. Writers write and inspirational speakers Speak.

YES! Thanks for your update as I was wondering too! Glad you are back. It seems the older we get those yo-yo pounds are harder and harder to lose. It sure is happening to me. But we can't give up! I'll be watching for your "fix for us" and your continued success!

So we're on this path for a reason. If this weight issue weren't so darned complex, I guess none of us would be blogging about it and spending vacations at the ridge. I appreciate your honesty. Especially since I too am going through it. Off to blog, myself. Thanks.
