Would I hang out with an enemy day after day? NO! So why do I continue to eat junk that I regret eating immediately afterwards, and what is it going to take for me to STOP??? Those are the million dollar questions. emoticon

    Today is my day 5 of " no sugar challenge" so far I am doing great and no craving, no acne, no sugar crush. I was addicted to all kind of sweet treat especially baked goods.
I let myself go since Thanksgiving till recently and gained 13 pounds. It was a time for me to stop before it's too late. Just one step at a time. Hope to keep this way for while. Good luck to you.

    I feel the same way, I constantly ask myself why I continue to eat so much sugary stuff. I am finding that the more nutrient dense foods I eat (i.e. greens) the less I crave the junk.

Getting back to basics

Sunday, January 19, 2014

I've learned that I can't exercise away a bad diet, and sugar is a slippery slope. Unlike previous years, I am not going to vow never to eat sweets again, but I am getting back to the basics of tracking my food and exercise. It's too easy to eat a piece of this and a bite of that and soon I find I've gained 5 pounds. Tracking my food, although time consuming helps me to not eat too much, but also to not eat too little, and it causes me to make wiser choices. I am stepping off the ride and getting back on solid ground.

Quitting the fight

Friday, February 15, 2013

I've had enough! I'm throwing in the towel on trying to be a certain weight, and trying to eat perfectly. It makes me obsess about food and eventually binge. So what if I weigh 120 instead of my desired 115? So what if I have a little belly that rolls over my low-rise jeans when I sit? The cost is too great! My family and I stress when we make plans to go out to eat for a birthday or other occassion worrying about where we can go so I can find something to eat. I'm healthy. I have enough energy to hike, bike, run, etc. Isn't that what it is supposed to be all about? YES!!!

    Certainly if you are stressing over that last five pounds---120 can be acceptable. continue with the exercising and eating proper portion size. It maybe what you need and who knows could be the stradigy to evening losing those 5 lbs. Best of luck on your next steps.

    Great attitude! It sounds like a good move.

    I don't know how tall you are, but at 120 pounds you've got to be well within the recommended BMI range and also in a low percentile of the female population.

So I absolutely agree with you. There's a big difference between your "giving up the fight" and someone morbidly obese who decides it's just too hard.

Good luck to you.

    I agree, if you are healthy, don't sweat those 5 pounds. I get that way when I start logging my food, and I know when I start getting "crazy in the head" about it, it's time to back off and enjoy my life again! Not that I go crazy the other way and binge, but being healthy is about the whole body/mind, sounds like you are making a healthy choice to accept and embrace where you are!

    Break free of the tyranny of thinness! I once got down to 19% bodyfat, but I feared food all the time and my knees hurt from running. It was a stressful life, not really fun at all. And I rebounded and gained 50 lbs. I've found a way to eat I can live with forever, and take the body I get (now down near high school weight, in the high end of my normal BMI), but I suffered for nearly four decades. Don't do it!

I have created a challenging for myself. For every day I do not eat candy I will put $3.00 in a jar. If on any day I eat candy, I must remove $3.00 from the jar. On December 23 I get to buy myself something for Christmas with the money in the jar.

I will build from there. Day one is looking good!
