good week

Friday, January 13, 2012

I'm happy the new year is starting out so well. Quitting my 2nd job was the best thing I did last year.

  


Awkward to say no

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Went to see a movie and had enough calories left for a kiddie popcorn. But when I was in the ladies room when we were leaving my DH bought me a big soft pretzel! 400 calories! I wasn't hungry. I didn't want to eat more. But I didn't want to hurt his feelings. I was a little annoyed that he tempts me with these and I don't feel like I can turn them down. I could have taken a bite and then put aside until we got home and then thrown the rest away. But I snarfed the whole thing. An extra 30 minutes exercise tomorrow just to stay even, sigh. I have be willing to disappoint or even make someone unhappy to let them know not to do it again.

    My DH kept doing this to me until I said, "I am determined to lose X pounds by sticking to my allowed calories. I appreciate the thought, but I can't eat this. I just want to make sure you know in advance that I'm not gonna accept this stuff anymore." And I posted a big sign on my fridge "NO EXTRA CALORIES!" Works most of the time.

    I understand exactly what you're saying and have experienced it myself. Just about everybody here has. One of the keys to success is to SHARE your goals. Once I put my on sticky notes and posted them everywhere around the house... she took me seriously and quit tempting me with stuff.
that's my 2 cents...
thanks for stopping by...

Week in review

Sunday, January 08, 2012

The first week of the year and I'm happy with my good habits. Exercised at least 20 minutes per day, tracked my food. I'm raising my awareness of portions with a pretty set of new measuring spoons and cups.

  


It won't work if you don't follow the rules

Thursday, January 05, 2012

I've been at this for about 3 months now and have a good amount of tracking to review and guess what? I'm not staying in my calorie range. I'm learning to eat healthier and understanding portion size but I don't yet have a real feel for the calories I'm consuming unless I track and review and review and review. So next step, is - learn the rules without having to look them up, i.e., know the calories in things and know what my daily total is intuitively.

  


Fear and eating

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Today I spent most of the day dealing with a problem with my PC. I found myself nibbling and went out for SB because I just wanted to "relax". When I think about it, now that the PC is working okay, I was afraid. So now I know of another emotional eating trigger - fear. Fear of a negative consequence, fear of losing something. I know a PC isn't that important but understanding the impact of fear on eating is a valuable lesson.

    Good that you became mindful of that feeling. What else could you have done to comfort yourself with out food?
Deep relaxation techniques. Removed yourself from the computer for a bit. Listened to some music, called a friend. Which one of these might have helped?
Or could help the next time.

take care
Sharon
