DH has not been weighing his protein, he's having low cal salad dressing and munching on Melba toast, ergo his gains. On other rounds his losses were double mine. I don't get on his case because it's his journey not mine.
As for me, I'm still craving chocolate. Choco D's are on my mind. If I make Choco D's I will eat them so I'm trying very hard not to make them. I fought the urge and won!
Awaiting Hurricane Sandy. Thoughts and prayers go out to all on the east coast that will be impacted.
Last night I almost made Choco D's. I wanted the taste of . I've been without sweetener for 20 days so I'm not exactly sure what brought it on. Perhaps it was the thought of the upcoming storm and the prediction of the havoc Hurricane Sandy could bring. I didn't make the batch because I couldn't find my molds. A blessing in disguise although I didn't think of it that way at the time. I searched for 90 minutes until I found where I had tucked them away. By then it was too late to make chocolates.
I purchased new miniature chocolate bar molds and the contents of the finished product is probably no more in weight than a Hershey Kiss. I'm trying to convince myself that I can fight this recent urge.
I'm in the middle of P2 and questioning my strength to make the right decision. Many struggles and lessons learned on this protocol. It's so much more than a weight loss journey.
I've started a new round of the diet and so glad to be back in focus.
I shall begin a daily exercise routine beginning with yoga. I've missed the focus it has brought me in the past. I highly recommend Rodney Yee - he's an incredible instructor.
I've decided to do a daily situp and pushup count for one minute. My short goal is to do it for one week then extend from there so I don't overwhelm myself.
Small changes go a long way!

I just recently started on SparkPeople...and I have to admit that my eating was somewhat out of CONTROL! I didn't realize till I actually started keeping track of what I eat how often during the day I was snacking. I caught myself on many occasions the first day and stopped myself before I ate the snack...keeping in mind I keeping track now. Well the extra calories is not what I need, nor wanted.
And...I noticed yesterday the energy level is going up as well...something I haven't had in months! I didn't even cat nap like I normally do and doing my daily house cleaning is going to be easier. I couldn't sleep till later in the evening because I had so much energy. I think being on this site and being able to talk to others to keep support going for ups and downs is going to keep me on track. I want to lose the weight not for everyone else but for ME...I'm the one that has to look in the mirror...and I want to see a new me standing there
Hi bmcolley, We are usually harder on ourselves than we are on others. When these discouraging thoughts come to you, tell yourself exactly what you would say to your best friend if they came to you for support. I do have to encourage myself when I start beating myself up.
