Saturday Weigh-in ~ Week 32...Time to Re-FOCUS

ImageChef Custom Images
Starting Weight: 258 lbs (Dec 10/08)
Last Weigh In: 199 lbs (July 5/09)
Current Weight: 201 lbs
This Week's Loss: IS NOT A LOSS AT ALL......2lb GAIN
Total pounds lossed to date: 57!!!

Okay, so I'm back in Twoterville!! CRAP!! However, I can assure you, I'm just back here to pick up the last of my things....this WILL be a very short visit. My new and permanent home will be in Onderland and I am heading there very soon.

I'm not at all surprised with this 2 pound gain with the way that I've been eating, however it has been a couple of weeks since my last weigh in, so it's really not as bad as I thought it would be. I remember when I first met with my trainer, he mentioned to me that success on this journey will be pretty much 80% healthy eating and 20 % proper exercise (don't quote me on the percentages)....the point is that I need to ensure that I'm eating well even if I am on point with the workouts. There has to be a balance and you cannot succeed with just one!

This was a huge lesson learned!! No dwelling on the past, time to re-FOCUS and start living in the NOW!!! It's time to enjoy my cheat meal and kick it up a notch from that point on. Had a great workout this am and a nice healthy breakfast. I'll keep you posted...

Until next time...
Joania (2KMINE!!!)

There you go! So glad to hear you are picking it up again...don't worry about the scale going up sometimes. Work hard, eat right and see the magic happen. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!

You're doing fantastic. Twoterville is no place to be...but a temporary visit to your old stomping grounds doesn't hurt at this point---You know where you're headed and you know how to get there.
You're doing amazing!
My best

Joania, I am very concerned that I am heading back to twoterville this week for a short stay. I have really eaten too much this week and exercised too little. Like you, the stay will be a short on though. Maybe I will be wrong - I'll know tomorrow morning.

Hey, like Sean said, a short visit to Twoterville is ok because you know you'll be back out of there soon. Hang in there! You're doing great!

You're doing an amazing job. I think some people think a journey like this is just a walk in the park. Truth is, everyday is a struggle, every meal, every decision. I think you're doing an amazing job! It's okay that you've gained, no one is going to judge you! Way to get back on the horse, you're AWESOME!!!

didn't I utter a similar statement when you first came to camp (lol) 80% is nutrition if not 90%

Keep up the great work jo!
