What the crap???

Sunday, April 14, 2013

I know that I am fat and obese and feel crappy all the time. But I have absolutely no will power! So irritated with myself and I need some help!! I did good the first week but straight down hill after that! What is wrong with me? Why can't I change my eating habbits for the better, not just for me but for my family as well? I am struggling and shouldn't be. Any suggestions?

    Hi Jennifer,
Slow down and take a deep breath! In two words: BABY STEPS! Don't try to completely change your life based on your decision to lose weight! Honour that decision by making tiny little commitments to achieve that goal. Probably the most important one is to record everything you eat & drink. You may be surprised at how much or how little you consume. You might also want to note how you feel around these times.(Like you mentioned that you eat under stress -- as most of us do.) That's good knowledge so you know when the stress level goes up -- you'll have to work that much harder to keep your commitments: One good one is to make up your mind to drink 8 glasses of water of day. It's easier for some than others, but start small. Psssst! You'll find when you drink more water, you won't feel as hungry! If you feel you can add a third, challenge yourself to eat say, 3 vegetables or fruits every day. See what I mean? Just try little steps and build on them. You didn't gain weight overnight and you won't get rid of it that easily either. One step at a time. You can do it and there are many people here to help you on your journey. Now no beating yourself up --- just choose a couple of baby steps....

    You have to want it as bad as you want to breathe. Ask yourself.. and be honest why do you want it? It wasn't until I wanted it for me that I began to make the lifestyle changes. Good luck!

MY morning started off bad.....I am not even going to get into it, but I did find out some useful info about myself. Stress and irritation make me want to eat. All I could thing about this morning was stopping at the store and getting some krisy kream donuts. But guess what, I didn't!! I just came on to work without over eating or stopping and getting anything sweet. It feels good to know that if I really want to I can control what I eat. It is me and nothing else. It is up to me to take control of the negative and turn it into a positive. This is probably going to take some time, but I have been strong enough so far, all I have to do is continue to tell myself, "I AM HEALTHIER TODAY THAN I WAS YESTERDAY", This seems to help me. I am feeling pretty good about how I am doing so far. I just pray I can continue on this path!!! emoticon

Day 4

Sorry , I didn't take the time to blog lastnight. But I am doing really well. I have been craving ice cream, which is totally my weakness, but i got it out of the fridge and guess what?! I put it back. emoticon
That was soooo hard, but hey, I have been sticking to my guns so far and I sure don't want to mess it up. It would only take one bite of ice cream and I would binge. I know myself well enough to know that I can't do that.......PROGRESS BABY!!!!! emoticon

    Congrats on putting it back! That's a tough one! I find it is always the first bite that gets me in trouble (because who knows how many I will take after that first one!)

Way to go! emoticon

Day 2

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

So far so good today.. I am at 650 calories and still haven't eaten supper. That is really good for me. I would normally be starving right now but I am content. Going to eat supper and tally it up. I also started this hypnosis thing last night. I downloaded it on my phone. I listened to it and.....well, I wasn't hypnotized but I did listen to the message which is a really good one. I will let yall know how that works for me. I am going to listen again tonight before bed. Today.....was good. Hopefully It will continue....Thank you guys for all your support... emoticon

I guess I have to say I am starting over since I have gained every bit of weight and every inch that I worked so hard to loose-BACK... Super frustrated at myself and I need yalls input please. I know what I have to do, it is actually doing it that is so hard. I don't understand myself. The more I want to de better the worse I actually do. I am addicted to food and have figured that out by how much I actually eat. ALOT!! No normal stomach should be able to hold the amount of food that I put into mine. I found a websited for food addicts but there are no meatings in my area. All I do is eat eat eat and then I feel so sick and it actually makes things worse but I seem to have NO control over it. Any suggestions would be great...First things first....account for every piece of food I allow myself to have. It seemed to help last time because I was cosuming way more than I thought I was. I am gonna start there... Thanks ahead of time for any suggestion you guys may have.

    Hugs and prayers for you...and others (myself included) that share this journey with you. You DO know what works, and yes, it's the follow through that can trip us up.
You're not alone, and I pray you find strength for each task and encouragement for the days ahead. I wish you success in your endeavors and the rewards of good health!

    So glad you are are where you need to be. Today, no more beating yourself up, keep the emotions positive and focused. Just recently my husband joined me in wanting to drop some weight and after a week of him not snacking on junk food, filling up on carbs and empty calories, we both see his energy has increased but more importantly he is commenting that he is no longer craving some of those foods...and that is the point I'm trying to make...not that you have to eliminate certain foods forever but for now there may be some trigger foods that compel you to keep eating. Even though almonds are good for you, I can't stop at a normal portion, so FOR NOW, I don't have them in the house...period. Try and keep the food intake fresh, fresh, few processed foods as possible. Best of do deserve to be successful!

  I wish you the best of luck. I'm in the same boat at you...I've gained back everything I lost, plus a few more just for fun I guess. : (

You can do it, because you're worth it.
