My weekend started yesterday, on mi mind. Yep, on Thursdays I start overeating, something gets activated in my head every time the weekend is coming, I get anxious and want to over eat, want to eat things that I know are high in calories, can't explain why, from Thursday to Sunday I eat sometimes twice the calories I should.
Don't know what to do about it, can't restrain myself from doing it, I'm not strong enough BUT What I am going to do is workout twice what I normally do, that way I can do some damage control, while I figure out what to do to restrain myself on weekends.

... ... RUN Ivonne! RUN!!!
So, I am on week 4 with the c25k, that means I've been a runner for almost a month!!! Yes! that is what means to me, I am a runner!... a beginner runner but still a runner!
How did I came to realize this? ... well, I am doing the c25k program, so I run three times a week using the Zen Labs c25K for free on my Iphope, yesterday was day No. 2 of week 4, I went running early in the morning, I do it Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, so today I didn't go running because I'll go tomorrow, but I am actually thinking "Can't wait for tomorrow to do my running", and that is that! that is the thought that I would never, in a million years, would have thought... does that make sense? ... I never would've guess that I was going to fall in love with running.. I know, I know is only 4 weeks but for me THIS IS HUGE!!! anyways tomorrow I'll complete week number 4... so
Week number 5 here I go!

Ok, so my goal was to lose 2 pounds each week, the first week I lost 2 pounds, yey me! the second week I lost 0 pounds :( but the weight is not the only way to know if you are moving forward, I know that now, for example I didn't lose the 2 pounds I wanted but I did my workout of 40 minutes 4 times this week, and that is progress.
However I want to set a goal, I am 228 pounds today 4 of June, my birthday is on July 4th so, I want to be 220 for my birthday I would have to lose the 2 pounds each week that I aim for, I truly hope I can commit to the nutrition part of my goals, 'cause I know for a fact that my problem is the food, calorie control is what I need.
Let's do this.

So I stayed off Spark People for a year, I decided that I didn't wanted to diet, didn't wanted to know or think about food and losing weight, I was going to focus on living my life and trying to be what I consider "a normal" person, that is a person who doesn't think about food all the time, and by "thinking about food all the time" I don't mean "eating all the time", no... it's more much complex than that, I did't wanted to think how much calories was I going to eat at each meal or to think on Sunday "Tomorrow I will watch what I eat, today I'm having a lot of ice cream" and things like that... but then, obviously, I gained weight, but I didn't know how much because I decided also that I wasn't going to use the scale any more, the only thing that I did try to do was exercising, I went walking 2 or 3 times a week, and that's it, this is what I call:
A tantrum with myself
** My finding **
I cannot stop thinking about food because: I am a obsessive compulsive eater
I was gaining weight, I didn't know how much but it was a lot because my clothes stop fitting... I was desperate but still doing my tantrum, so I went to a book store and I bought the book: "Overcoming Overeating" from Janne R. Hirschmann, Carol H. Munter, it is a VERY radical book because it's main purpose is for you to stop dieting and controlling yourself from eating so that you eventually eat only when you are hungry, I couldn't do what the book says, because it says that I should eat everything that I want in the portion that I want, and I just got scared of ballooning up! anyways the book helped me to realize that I don't eat simple because I love food, there's a lot of people that love food but are not obese... so I need to figure out WHY can't I stop eating when I am full, so I went to a therapist and she is helping me with that.
Along with the "I'm going to the therapist" decision, I decided to once again control my eating by counting calories, I am not using sparkpeople for that because I don't like the iPhone application and I register my calories on my iPhone, so I am using the myfitnesspal to track food and It's working, the first week (last week) I lost 2 pounds, that was my goal, I am doing the c25K also, so I workout 3 times a week (running/walking) and 1 time I do strength exercise.

PCOS prevent me from losing weight like a 'normal' person, I mean a person without PCOS so I am supposed to have no more than 4 carbs each day (portions, like 1 slice of whole wheat bread is 1 portion, and half cup of brown rice is one porcion, and half cup of beans, etc.)
I was watching my carbs from Monday to Friday and not losing any weight, even though I am walking 1 hour each day/ 5 days each week... So last week this is what I did:
1. Track my food, I was going to track even on the weekend but I couldn't I didn't have the time so only from Monday to Friday and make sure I didn't went up my calorie range (1,300 - 1,600)
2. I had 4 portions of carbs (complex carbs)
3. Walk 4 times, 60 minutes each time
I have done that BEFORE and didn't lose weight, so last week I changed my dinner TWO times, I had a chocolate Slim Fast shake for dinner... I lost 2 pounds
I am happy, it was a small change and it worked... will do the same this week and hopefully I can lose at least 1 pound more, my REALISTIC goal is 1 pound each week
