Day 50....and where is the weight loss?

In theory, I should have lost about 15 pounds by now..but I weighed in at 181 yesterday. What the hell is my deal? I can tell you exactly what my deal is: lack of commitment...I've been "trying" to lose 30 pounds in 100 days instead of "working" to lose, or just plain "losing". I've been "trying" to stick to core, instead of "sticking" to core. It all comes down to this: When you try to do something, it isn't going to get done. When you do something, it's a lot more likely to get done. I'm half way through my 30/100 deal and I don't know (and doubt) I will make it all the way to 30 pounds, but hell, I'm going to lose weight and see what I can get done by July 13th. I've got 7 weeks left. I'm just going to ride the core wave and see what I can accomplish. If it's 10 pounds, it's 10 pounds. If it's 15, it's 15. I'm going to take it as it comes.

My other deal is that I'm sick as a dog. I've got some kind of horrible cold that I caught from my darling brother, Ian. I think I'm retaining water because of the cold meds and all the water I've been chugging because I'm crazy thirsty. I'm just glad that today is the last day of the work week for me. I've got a 4 day weekend that I'm going to chill during, and maybe finally get to play with my new GPS. ( A co-worker is going to give me a tutorial on it today!)

note: I had to re-post this post because for some reason I thought that allowing anonymous comments would be cool...wrong. I got a huuuuuuuuuuuuuge comment that was really a religious/political diatribe. If it had been short, I would have been okay with it...but it wasn' was craaaaaaazy long.

50 days more! Get to work! I'm resisting pizza right now. Oh, how I want pizza...NO!

7 weeks is a long time. You are going to do great! Are you trying to make too many changes at once? Following core, increasing your exercise, work, family, etc. etc.? Maybe pick two goals that you know are achievable for the week and focus on those. That way if you do more you'll be so happy. You can do this! :)

7 weeks is a lot of time to make process by doing it. Just keep working. You'll make good progress, I have faith in you.
Sorry to hear that you've been sick. That can certianly put a dent in your efforts.
