Starting Again Again

Saturday, May 12, 2012

In my office they have started a Scottish Slimmers at Work group, so I have signed up. Got weighed in the group and have started again.

Day 2 and I'm in the usual obsessive stage about food, I see it everywhere and am thinking about it constantly. But I am at the start again and am hopeful that I will get a result on Thursday. It's hard to be at home all day and surrounded by food at the weekend...

    Tel me about it!! I don't know how many times I've retarted this year. One thing I've found useful is exercise and on Spark the exercises seem harder than anything I do outside *Rosemary Connolly exercises.

Day 4 Day Off

Friday, April 29, 2011

Thanks to the Royal Wedding I've had a day off today emoticon spent time on Glitch, shopping, on Glitch, and a wee bit gardening and playing Glitch. I even found time to watch part of the ceremony!

When you're not at work you are totally surrounded by food and eating opportunities! I tried my best but I'm not sure I did too well today - still tomorrow is another day emoticon


Day 3 still plodding on

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Hopefully I'm getting somewhere with this emoticon Today has been pretty good so far - I was so busy at work I didn't have time to walk at lunchtime (not an excuse today, I only had 20 minutes - and was interrupted twice!) so I walked home. Not too bad after months of not doing it - the hill was eminently scaleable and I didn't feel like death when I got home! emoticon

Meat for dinner (which feels like a fearful waste of calories but so far I'm still well within my limit) I've got a day off coming up and then the weekend ... wish me luck!


Square One Day Two

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

I'm going to try to blog daily in the hope I can keep myself under control.

Today, the second day of my return to Sparkdom, didn't go too badly - no-one had a birthday at work so there were no wee cakes on offer, and although I really fancied a bar of chocolate I didn't give in to the temptation (until I got to mum's where I savoured a lindor egg - not too bad, she was offering me a slice of buttered date loaf!)

I went for a walk although just a short one because I was running late, I went up and down 6 flights of stairs which was good, and I discovered I don't have much room inside me when I twisted in the loo and "something shifted" I haven't felt that discomfort for ages and I must remember it for the next time I feel like dropping off the old wagon!

Resolve's not going too badly so far - here's hoping I can keep it up!


Back to Square One

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Here we go again.

I was 230 pounds when I signed up to Spark People 2 years ago and look! magic! 229 pounds as of last night emoticon

I lost 30 pounds at my best point but I slipped, and slipped again, then the last month or so I have positively hurled myself off that wagon. Refusing to go out walking, refusing to pack my lunch, and since I was buying lunch I might as well have crisps and chocolate to go with it. Inside myself was a wee voice saying no! no! but my inner three-year-old was stamping her feet and throwing her weight about.

I've been pretty good today, packed lunch, slightly larger dinner than I planned but still not too bad. I actually went out for my lunchtime walk after weeks of finding excuses.

I'm too fallible but I've just got to take myself in hand.

    Thanks Millie, best of luck with your own weight journey - hopefully we can help each other through emoticon

One thing that is really helpful - coming on here regularly helps you stay focused, I just have to ignore that inner 3-year old who keeps telling me not to bother emoticon

    Yes I know exactly how you feel. I had lost 31lbs 5 years ago and have since put it back on. For a while I went through the "tantrum" stage with that inner voice screaming "NO!" I seemed to be caught in a strange tug of war with myself....wanting to eat healthily and then reaching for a chocolate bar almost at the same moment. However sometimes you just have to wait until the moment comes when finally enough is enough and you turn that corner.
I have been on Spark people for about 5 weeks now and have lost 9lbs. My clothes are beginning to get loose and I definitely have more energy. The thing that I have learned so far is that you can just keep looking forward. If you do slip up then just see it as a blip in an otherwise great journey to a slimmer and fitter you.
I wish you the best of luck. emoticon
