so this is the first day to forever.....

enjoy your night..


  1. keep moving forward from today kelli.
    You can do this. Have you tried diet pop.
    IF it works for you , use it.

  2. Everyone has had setbacks and if somebody says they never have, I'd be suspicious of that statement. You blogged about your lack of motivation and that you are stressed out because you've regained some pounds. That is a good start....admitting your problems and your fears. Now that you've expressed that in writing, it is time to think about what you want most. Is it that you want to be healthier? If so, that can be a powerful motivator. Great health doesn't come overnight and it won't come without a cost. It will take time, and the cost could range from making sure to get some type of exercise EVERY DAY, plan some meals ahead of time, depriving yourself of the trigger foods that derail you (at least for a while), and thinking positively. Kelli, you are worth the effort of making this happen. I wish you well, God Bless.

  3. I'm so glad to see you posting again. I think about you and have wondered how you're doing.

    Kelly, do you have a plan outlined? I mean something that's more definite than keeping under a certain number of calories.
    Make yourself an outline, plan your meals at least a day in advance (2 or 3 days works best for me) so that you're not facing lunchtime or dinner time with no idea what you're going to eat. If you leave it till it's time to eat, or you're hungry, you're more likely to make a poor choice.
    Plan 15 minutes of exercise. Walk or dance or anything else you can think of to get moving. It won't take very long until you start feeling better.
    Make your plan and make a commitment to stay with it for a day. Then commit again the next day... and so on.
    You can do this, you've been doing it before.
    I'm rootin' for ya!

  4. It isn't that you fell down, it matters you got back up...

  5. Just try again like you said Kelli! And make one good choice at a time...::hugs::

  6. What motivates me? The thought that I could die an early death! Kelli, you have proved that you can lose weight- now do it again! Your future depends it- you want your degree, a nice career, financial stability, BF, family, and to not have pain and these things are right around the corner. You can do it! BTW I missed your posts and wondered if you saw the doctor.

  7. What motivates me is my health. I don't want a heart attack. I don't want cancer. I don't want a stroke. I want off my blood pressure medicine. I don't want knee and feet problems. I don't want to be in a wheelchair. I want to be able to walk around the block when the weather is nice. I want to go to the mall and walk around. I want to go on vacation and walk to the cute shops, and down the beach. I want to be alive and healthy for the people who count on me and love me.

  8. Kelli, I don't know if you are anything like me, but since I stopped working I lost my way a bit. Without structure to my day I tended to see food as a treat, and I treated myself too often! It helped relieve the boredom and break up the long day.

    I have to have small amounts of foods I like every now and then. I have to be strict with myself to ensure I don't go overboard, and although I am not losing vast amounts of weight (or quickly) I am heading in the right direction. I also have to force myself to move more, and I am finding that the more I do, the easier it seems, and I actually WANT to go out into the fresh air to walk.(Faints!)

    You have inspired me many a time Kelli, so get right back on track. It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be better than how it used to be, on a regular basis. Hope your trip to the doctors was worthwhile and that you are feeling better now. Thinking of you. Hugs.
