Ms Elizabeth's Journal, 28 November 2018

My holiday gain is official. Why don't they have a setting other than poorly for how well you followed your diet choice. For instance there could be Good, Reasonably Well, Poor, and OMFG WHAT HAVE I DONE? Just a suggestion...

I wanted to log the weight so I'm at least owning up to having gained it. The truth is it was worse during the holiday weigh in at work but that was in the middle of the day with workout clothes on so since it's out of the norm I didn't log it here. It was definitely motivating to see the scale that high though. It was also motivating having the buff girl who works the front desk seeing it.

Enough is enough. Suck it up cupcake because I've got a matra and motivation. Matra - I will not let my weight keep me from living my life. Motivation - Writing a bucket list with things my weight is keeping me from doing. When things get hard or I'm tempted by something I remind myself of everything I'm missing out on right now because I'm either physically unable to do them or I'm convinced I would do them if I didn't look like a cupcake.

Today I added run a 5K to my list. I have no clue why this is on my list. Maybe because I always looked at runners with envy. Maybe because I've done 5K's and I don't like being in the rear end of the pack. Maybe because that guy in jeans what seems to join the 5K because he just saw people running and wanted to join in??? I have no clue. There is always the guy in jeans and boots though. I'd like to be fast enough to keep up long enough to say "Dude what's your deal??" The thing is the people in the front look miserable so I'm not sure why this is a want for me. Maybe it's because all the runners I know belong to a running group. It seems kinda like a cult. I could just join a cult but there doesn't seem to be a walking cult. I think you need to be a certain level of crazy to join the marathon running cult.. ahem.. community. I should probably be calling these people a community especially if I want to run a 5K. I may need them to scrape me off the pavement at the end. Maybe I want this because I've tried a few times and never come close. Maybe it's because last year I was literally too big to run and ended up with shin splints, a foot that still hurts, and my 6 year old running past me taunting me "You too slow!!!!" as he lapped me around the barn. So yeah.. My motivation today is to lose enough weight to be able to run without physically injuring myself or needing to be scraped off the concrete.

Plus.. if I run and someone ends up calling the paramedics I don't want them to call for extra help because they cant throw my butt into the back of the ambulance. Especially if they are cute paramedics. Not that I'm looking but a girl has to have some pride in front of a cute paramedic. When you think about it.. this is really a safety issue. I totally forgot where this is going because I have the focus of a fruit fly right now. Hope everyone has a good day!!

You’re the best haha! I am up 8lbs from my lowest weight (August) I’m fighting maintenance but I can tell you losing the weight is so worth it. You can do it! And you will be so glad you did. Having a little more confidence in myself is such a good feeling. I’m here to cheer you on every step of the way❤️

LOL I started sort of running. I am too heavy but I feel like if I start slow maybe by spring I can do something. Not going to fast enough to catch up to that cute guy in jeans though

🤣 OMFG WHAT HAVE I DONE .. should definitely be on there. We are what we eat and it shows. Winning the race isn't the goal of runners, it is finishing the race. So slow down and take it one day at a time. You just have to start. Hugs!

I was up 6 lbs from Thanksgiving but thankfully all but 2 lbs have fallen off this week so far. I will log my weight Saturday in hopes to be at a lower weight or at least the weight I was before Thanksgiving. 😅

Try quick walking-not the power kind where the people always look like their hips are unhinged.... Baby steps and nothing wrong with cute EMTs.

Clay Pot Baker, I really like heading out of the house walking quickly till I feel I need to slow down. Not the unhinged hip type of walking, because I think my legs might drop off, LOL But I like to feel I have pushed myself, then I can settle down to just enjoying my surroundings. Luckily the dogs agree with this tactic :D
