How to distract myself from eating.

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

So one of my biggest obstacles to overcome is my need to stress feed!! Whenever I get stressed out I feel like I deserve that Dairy Queen or that burger and fries...and well life just isn't that fair!
I've have had to find hobbies to distract me from putting food in my mouth. I love to walk, but depending on the weather and my kids that isn't always an option.
I have started an awesome hobby, crocheting! I have been doing it since high school, but it wasn't till recently I got super into it! I even created my own Facebook page and sell my creations! It has turned out to be 1)an amazing distraction 2)a wonderful stress reliever and 3) I get to make a little money on the side! It's a win win situation!!

My first and only stuffed animal, it is fun but hard to make!


I made this today


Some of the hats I have made

    Crocheting is a great distraction to keep you from mindless munching when you're feeling stressed. I spend a good amount of time crocheting. It keeps my hands busy, ad II can't eat when I'm crocheting. I don't want to get my hook or my yarn dirty so that works well for me. The hats are cute.

    love the hats, I crochet some, but as I get older my hands just don't cooperate
keep those hands and mind busy and food will not be a thought

South beach day 1, rockin!!

Monday, July 08, 2013

Hey so far things are going great, I feel full, satisfied, and pleased with myself! This afternoon will be the hard part 2ish every day I crave chocolate like no other!!!
I realize I made a mistake yesterday, I am not 334lbs, I am 234, and for real I weighed in at 235.1 today!
So this morning I had eggs, I had pistachios for snack, lettuce wrap (turkey, tomato, hummus) for lunch, celery and cucumber with hummus this afternoon, and steak and steamed cauliflower for dinner :-) I think it's super important to plan your food at the beginning of the day, so you won't leave room for impulsive decisions. Wish me luck!!

Here are my measurements at the beginning of south beach diet!!

    Sounds like a great plan for meals of the day
Most times I do not know what we will eat til I get to the kitchen to fix it
Most of the time it is healthy Meat Potato Vegetable and Salad

Tomorrow starts a new journey.

Sunday, July 07, 2013

I am officially at my highest weight/size ever. I weigh 334 lbs and wear a size 18 pants, and those are sometimes snug. Tomorrow I start south beach diet. I did this before I got pregnant and was able to lost 15 lbs before I conceived. Then two babies in 14 mo takes its toll on you! Baby number 2 is 14 months old now, and it is time to get down to business!!! I went grocery shopping today and I am excited and ready to start south beach! I'll let you know how I am doing as often as I can, te support is always appreciated!!


My youngest at 2mo old

    You can do this! Visualize your success. After you get off to a strong start with South Beach, learn to use the tools available on Spark People--tracking food and exercise really keeps us accountable and the Community Forums are great for those moments when we feel weak. Remember, consistent small improvements are better than fast, unsustainable changes. Good luck!

I wish you the best of luck in your journey and I have no doubt that here, you will find a wealth of support for every step of the way! emoticon emoticon emoticon
