My new journey to being healthy and happy! I'm a 25 yr. old who just finished college with a BS in structural engineering. All the stress and late nights at school led to my weight gain. I used to be able to use lack of time as an excuse to myself for not being able to exercise regularly. Well, now school's over and the excuses no longer cut it.

Hi there! Thanks for dropping by.
Gotta love those before and after pictures uh? ;)
So far I've been doing a lot of running and strength work outs. I do like lifting weights. And of course seeing the aftermath of my muscles being sore. A little hardcore? nah. hehe.
What about you?
Loving those photos of yourself! Looking hawt!

Well thanks for the compliments! I feel like I must be doing something wrong because the scale is not moving. I just bought it about 3 weeks ago and I have basically only lost about half a pound since buying it!

I try to hit weights 3-4 days a week and I am trying to do at least SOME cardio 4-5 days a week. I don't think that my working out is a problem...I think my eating is a problem. It is rare that I go below 1500...I usually keep between 1500-1600 (cept for holidays when I seem to splurge).

Working at a coffee shop is MUCH better than working in an office for weight loss!!!!

Oh and I don't really log my workouts in here...I just post a blog about it!

emoticon How wonderful that u got your degree in Structural Engineering. Smart girl.

I'm reading the BECK DIET SOLUTION, which isn't a "diet" but she teaches how to THINK like a THIN person. (Got a copy from the library.) I recommend it to everyone. (We have a support team here at Sparks.)

CRAVING RESISTANCE
Cravings are usually more emotional and physiologically intense than hunger. The moment I decide I will ABSOLUTELY NOT EAT cravings will diminish.
When I experience a craving my attention gets fixated on food. It is important to remember that the experience of eating goes far beyond the actual time that food is in my mouth - It includes everything that happens afterward: feeling weak, guilty and out of control and gaining weight. In the past when I tried to diet, I gave into cravings, and I felt upset with myself.
----------------------------------------
-
I know I don't care at this moment, but pretty soon I'm going to feel really bad that I ate this. When I get on the scale, I'm going to care very much. If I don't learn to resist eating food I'm not suppose to have, I'll never be able to keep off the weight I lose.
---------------------
I have to become an expert at resisting all food that I haven't planned to eat. If I want to lose weight and keep it off, I just can't eat what I want unless it is on my plan.
-----------------
I am choosing to say NO CHOICE.
If I want to lose weight, I have to do what I need to do, not what I feel like doing.
---------------------
Successful dieters and maintainers stay successful because they don't eat whatever they want, whenever they want it. They stick to their plans.
---------------
It is true that I don't care at this moment. But if I eat this unplanned food, I'm going to care quite a lot in a few minutes. I know I'll feel really bad if I give in now, but I'll feel really terrific in a few minutes if I resist. I need to do something else!

Hello! I saw your words of wisdom on Schnookiepie's page. Do you have any for me? I'm having a tough time dropping some weight and I'm sure I can make some more changes to my diet (like cut out the ff cream cheese and jam).

You look great!
