I'm back

Sunday, September 20, 2009

I've whined enough.

I'm back to logging my calories. All my soft foods lol! What am I, 101 years old?

    I have never had to eat soft foods but can empathize. I always log my food. It really helps.

    Isn't whining fun? I am a whiner too. Doesn't get you anywhere and noone else enjoys your company when you're doing it. But it is so hard to stop. Glad to hear you have it under control.

Dumb pain

Saturday, September 19, 2009

Apparently I have TMJ (that's what the doctor says but I'm not quite convinced as one of my symptoms is being ignored) and the pain means that I have to eat soft foods for two weeks. This is not new to me because I've had it for two years and occassionally have flare-ups.

This makes my caolrie intake go way under if I'm not feeling well or way over if I'm frustrated and give in to cravings like sugary drinks.

Grrrrrrrrrrrr. I was doing so well.

I also have dairy and wheat allergies so easy dairy things to eat are not available to me.

Looks like lots of homemade soup, Rice cream (fake ice cream), interesting drinks, soy yogurts etc. here I come. emoticon

    So sorry to hear this. It sounds like you have a good plan in place and I'll be hoping for a speedy recovery.

    I have had TMJ for 30 years now. I wear a night guard when sleeping to keep from grinding my teeth. I also learned to meditate and relax my jaw to keep the tension out. There are good PT out there that can help you with the issue. Good luck. emoticon

I gave myself permission

Sunday, September 13, 2009

I gave myself permission to have a treat if I want to and it's already working. I'm not freaking out and having huge cravings and I'm not feeling like bingeing this weekend just because I only let myself have a treat on weekends before this one. There's more balance now.

So today I had a Coke and a smile and I continued eating healthfully, with lots of calories left for dinner and a healthy snack of Sweet Coronation grapes.

  Good for you! It's about balance right? Not all or nothing!

    This is how I'm going at it as well, I think it's the best way, as soon as I say "no more..." I want that thing.

Keep up the great work!

    Good for you - I have found that treats aren't a problem as long as I have them away from the house - so you'd have a single coke - and not a case sitting around taunting.

    Good for you! I too am trying not to deprive myself out occasional treats. I think it is the only way to go if we are considering this a lifestyle and not just another diet. Good luck!!!

This is what I'm going to do.

Saturday, September 12, 2009

I have decided to continue to count my calories, but I'm going to have a treat if I want one so that I don't go overboard from cravings or just because it's the weekend and I've given permission to slack off.

I'm going to watch my calories all week long, including the weekends, eat a treat if I want to, start walking again after dinner, and I'm adding cleaning the house for a half hour every day. We'll see how this works.

I think that this wil make me more successful at weight loss.

    You have a good plan and if you stick to it and make it an occasional treat, that you track on the tracker, you will be fine. Remember this is a lifestyle change and not a diet. On a lifestyle change when your birthday, as an example, comes around have a small piece of cake and a little ice cream.

    Can I offer you a word of caution? An occasional treat is great, but they take a lot of self-control. I tried it a couple months ago, adding in treats and counting the calories. Then I simply rounded off calories and estimated without tracking them. And then I stopped doing that and I stopped losing weight. And that's why I joined SP. It's a slippery slope, so tread carefully. Keep adding them into your nutrition tracker and you'll be fine. Good luck!

Need a kick in the a$$

Friday, September 11, 2009

You'd think I would have stumbled a few times and gotten back up and lost some weight.

I do eat healthful meals, but it's the snacks that are killing my weight loss.

I also need to go for a walk after dinner -- since when did I stop doing that?

I need to get back in action. ACTION!!!

OK I just wanted to put that out there.
