I binged again.

Friday, September 14, 2012

I have been doing so well and then yesterday, I binged. I had a busy day and was stressed out and needed to eat something quick. I just didn't want my regular food. I wanted Pine Apple Pizza from Dominos. I wanted a couple slices but I did not have the will power. I ate a whole Medium pizza all by myself. It tasted amazing. Its all I ate all day.

Today I am back on track today. I still feel guilty but I own up to what I did.

From now on I will go to the pizza restaurant and just get a slice of pizza.

Yesterday was a big lesson for me. I do not have the will power I thought I had. I think part of my weight loss journey is to know my strengths and weaknesses and to adapt my plans.

I would like to hear from others about how they stopped binging?

I live alone. I know if other people had been around, I wouldn't have done it. I did feel bloated but I ate it over six hours.

    Wow How did you feel after you ate all the pizza? Did you feel bloated or ill? If so, work on those feelings next time you want to binge, remember how you felt when you let go and ate all you wanted. I, for one, know my limits on sweets and I am much better if I either don't start or eat them in front of other people. If I am by myself, it is always just one more (piece or handful doesn't matter) until I have eaten way more than I should. If I eat it front of people who know that I am trying to do a healthier lifestyle, it keeps me in check.

Felt really good today.

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Today has been a stressful day. I realized I had less money then I thought I did and rent is past due. No pressure right?!

But today I had a big healthy salad, shrimp and a little beef. I have realized if breakfast is my biggest meal, I am dramatically less hungry through out the day. I am slowly beginning to lose weight.

But what I have now is control over my hunger for food. My addiction to sugar and stress eating had really brought me down. I did not realize how exhausting the terrible cycle was. It was a terrible way to live and it was depressing.

After breakfast today I was full and I knew I had ate healthy. I felt empowered. I felt calm and happy. I know I am doing the right things to be healthy again. It was a wonderful feeling. :)

My Scale is torturing me!

Wednesday, September 05, 2012

Dear scale,

Why do you torture me?

Yesterday I was 236 pounds.

Today I am 209.6 pounds.

As much as I would like this to be true.

I know its a lie.

I am not on Biggest Loser.

I tried five times and its saying the same thing.

I have broke my scale. Again! GRRR!

I hate buying new scales! You know the sales lady is going, "Oh yeah, you need a scale!". emoticon

    As TJCADDO mentioned, replacing the battery is often the easy solution if it's an electrical scale (versus spring or balance).

    I have never known a single scale that tells the truth. Unreliable and when it tells you something nice, it's fibbing so it can get on your good side so maybe it can delay going in the trash.

Your scale must be desperate if it tells you repeatedly that you have lost 25 lbs.

Low battery?

"I dont want my friends to mistake you for my FAT Girlfriend!"

Friday, August 31, 2012

My nephew was born with a umbilical cord wrapped around his neck and was deprived of oxygen while they did a emergency C Section on my sister. Since then he has some mental development problems. He is very blunt and honest with no filters. He does not use tact at all.

I am picking him up from school each day. He is 14 year old now but is as tall and large as many Seniors at his school. Yesterday, I picked him up for the first time. I stood outside my car so he could spot me (or my hair).

He says, Gwen! "You might be mistaken as my FAT girlfriend!" I asked him to repeat himself out of pure shock and he said it again. See kids with cars are allowed to park in the parking area. I was flattered that he thought I looked enough to be his girlfriend (I am old enough to be his Mother!) but yet I was fat.

At first I was highly offended but could not be angry at him because he was being honest. I took this as ANOTHER big hint that I need to get my weight in control.

The words that come out of babes!

His Mom is my half sister and wears a size 0. She is the skinniest woman I know. So there is a big contrast between me and her.

When I finally lose my weight, what will the haters *itch about then?

    Congrats on looking so young! You do need to consider teaching him to filter a bit. He may hurt someone else with his words. I'm not saying he did it on purpose, but he may hurt some little girl his age or a lady he doesn't know by referring to them as fat, simply because he hasn't learned to filter yet.

    Oh the days when I would pick my kids up at that age. So easily embarrassed. Anything from the car to how I stood outside the car would have them wondering how they could deal with the what their friends might think. Sounds like after the shock wore off, you handled it well. It also looks like you have a great start on the weight loss! Hang in there, it will come with hard work and commitment! Love your attitude! Keep up the good work!

    He is so sweet to say that to you! Not the fat part but the one about being his girlfriend.

    Obviously you are still very young looking! obviously teenage boys would find you attractive. In a world where "plus size" models are underweight it can make anyone normal size look that much bigger.

The real trick is to remove the filters that prevent us from reaching our goals.

    Your positive attitude will help you on your new health journey. Sometimes "getting a slap in the face" is just what we need to start something that we know we should do. You are in the right place and I wish you all the best. Remember, you are already beautiful!

    I love that you are strong enough and know your value enough not to take your nephew's comment personally. And that you say "when I lose my weight". Such a winner, you!

Week 3. Cutting back on Sugar.

Monday, March 26, 2012

For the last three weeks I have majorly cut back on my Sugar. The only source of sugar outside of fruit has been my Protein bar. It has 2 grams of Sugar and 9 grams of Sugar Alcohol. I eat one a day.

Its not been as hard as I thought it would be. You just have to stay focused and keep sweets out of the house.

With Easter coming, that will be my big hurdle. I love Easter candy!

I might get one piece of chocolate candy and I will do my best to be satisfied with that.

    Your doing great with this goal! You're right, focus is key to accomplishing goals. I love sweets as well, especially chocolate.

    I love the Easter candy too! my favorites are Black Jelly beans and Those Delicious Sugar covered marshmallow chicks. But even though it has been available to me already this year, so far I have consumed none.

Good luck with the anti sugar campaign!
