100 days restart - Day 7: I can do it!

Jenn J

Day 7: I can do it!

Whew! You've made it through the first week! How do you feel right now? A bit excited? Hopeful? Scared? You probably feel some level of all of these. If you've struggled with your weight in the past, you may also be afraid you'll repeat your same old patterns.

Kick those thoughts away! For the moment, squash your doubts about staying on your diet and exercise plan. Today, you are strong! You're invincible! And nothing can stop you! This time, you're going to do it!

Become your own cheerleader

To increase your success with this program, skyrocket your self-talk and create a strong belief you can do this. Become your own cheerleader, shouting out words of encouragement that will keep your motivation strong every single day.

To enhance your cheerleading, think about why you are so convinced you can be successful. Invent several phrases that reinforce your determination to stay on your plan for at least 100 days. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

1. I'm totally determined.

2. I've done it before and I can do it again.

3. I'm using a great weight-loss plan.

4. I'm capable of accomplishing anything.

5. Others have done it and so can I!

Recite these phrases every day, using them to reinforce your determination to make this program work.

Inspire yourself

Have you read any real-life stories about people who've lost a lot of weight and also maintained their success? Draw from these examples as well as from friends or colleagues who've accomplished phenomenal goals. Let these people inspire you and help keep you motivated to stick with your efforts. Tell yourself, "If they can do it, so can I."

Practice saying the words "I can do it!" over and over. Write them on sticky notes, and then post them on your mirror, your computer screen, and your car dash. Read them many times a day, maybe even 100 times. Push them deep into your mind and use them as a powerful affirmation that you will succeed with your plan.

Tell yourself "I can do it" at least 10 times. Use this to cheerlead yourself through the entire day!

In your notebook, write "I can do it because..." then add a few supportive phrases such as "I'm capable of doing anything."

Read your phrases often, using them to reinforce your goals and build your enthusiasm.

Sorry I didn't post this early on Saturday. I spend Saturday and Sunday morning with my BF and go to work from his house. I don't have my computer with me at his house, so I wasn't able to post. Next week I will try to post the weekend reading on Friday's.

I am capable of doing what I set my mind to do.
I have conquered cancer, I can lose weight!
I'm focused on a health future, and that means being accountable for my food intake.

Jenn, I'm sorry you had cancer: Did you know this information: Obesity and the white blood cell count: changes with sustained weight loss or excessive weight gain. ... Baseline WBC, neutrophils and lymphocyte counts increased with increasing BMI and decreased with age. Insulin levels were independently positively associated with higher neutrophil counts and triglycerides with higher lymphocyte counts.

Because I also had cancer 2's that I have low white blood cells which causes me to have excessive weight gain. Most think you will lose masive weight even Doctors think of it this way but the truth is that is correct WHEN YOU HAVE CANCER, but what happends when you have Conquered Cancer? Well now your Body goes into OVERDRIVE and it starts to be confused what to do. I found I gained 15lbs a year, that is 1+lb a year and add in 11yrs for me that is (165lbs) just what I had gained... and its taken 15months to lose it...

Please take Vit B-12 every day! along with vit B-50 your body like mine might be Going Nuts with out it, The Doctor said that is why I am over weight, People who have had Cancer can not Absorb it and so he told me to also take Vit D3 x 3 for that helps Absorb the Vit. Also Potassium was a MUST for me, you might want to look to see if you need it also... most people who have had cancer need that extra amount I take 99mg. (Hope this helps)...

I had breast cancer in 2015. While going through chemo I took turmeric and 25000 iu's of D3 a day. These really helped the chemo attack my cancer. It went from 2.8cm to 1.3cm just before my surgery.

After stopping the chemo I found my body is intollerant to excess turmeric, and I was too high on D3, so I have cut back to 2000 iu a day. I have been taking B supplements most of my adult life as I know my maternal grandmother didn't absorb it very well.

My current concern is that my blood sugars have been staying between 100 and 120 on all lab tests done for followups with the oncologist. My focus right now, next appointment is May 2nd, is to reduce my sugar intake, see what weight I can lose, and hope my blood glucose goes down by then.

Thanks for sharing all your wisdom with us!!!

So many Huggs to you.. a Billion plus....

The Cabbage Diet with a Soup bone and Veggies green and yellow... Changed my Blood Sugar in just 2 months... all I took was a cup in a coffee cup before every meal. it took me from being a Borderline Diabetic to a NON Diabetic the Doctors were amazed at the change in just to months.. This works for Thyroid, Cancer, Diabetes, Weight, Colds, Illness...Bowl syndrome.

list of ingredients:
1 or 3 soup bones. Either- (hamhocks, bone marrow, turkey, or ham bone). anyone you want
1 full carton of either (vegetable, turkey or chicken Broth)... Either one is fine.
2 large yellow or white onions
1 or 2 garlic cloves (garlic lovers: add an extra 1 or 2 cloves!)
2 yellow peppers
3 carrots
1 bunch of celery
Half a head of cabbage Yellow or Green Cabbage
Any Yellow or White Veggies you like.
Add in any spices you like... just flavor it too your taste buds..

put in Blender and puree' or grind up as fine as you can. So it turns into a liquid.

Mix all together, then place in a slow cooker, add broth and bones. Cook 3 to 6hrs,
if it gets low just add some more broth or water.... I always put Tinfoil and cover the pot then place the lid on top.. Sliver side Down... Turn off and let sit for a few hours... Then place in Mason Jars fill and place saran wrap then put on lid.... Let cool and place in frig...

for two weeks you just drink one cup before meals. or just sip on it during the day how ever you want to drink it.... I like it in a coffee cup warmed.... One Batch can last 2 weeks. it doesn't spoil...

This healed my acid reflex, my stomach Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection, bloating, cramps, stomach sensitiveness... it took it all away. now I can digest food with out any problems... it took 2 months and it lowered my Cholesterol by 75%...

No! the way I made it I didn't have gas... because of the meat bone oil and grinding up the foods. it becomes just a liquid... to drink...
