I Couldn't Control Myself . . .

Thursday, October 21, 2010

A couple of nights ago my niece and her boyfriend unexpectedly showed up around our dinner time. I hadn't started dinner yet and as luck will have it I didn't have enough healthy food to make dinner for the 5 of us. Well, I had the bright idea of ordering pizza and salad for us. What a mistake that was for me!! As we were waiting for the pizza and salad to be delivered I had plenty of time to fix myself a healthy dinner--but I love pizza and told myself I'd just have one slice of cheese pizza and the salad. I thought I could control myself even though pizza is one of my favorite foods.

I was really hungry by the time the pizza was delivered and I knew I was in trouble when it smelled so good! My plan was to have one piece of cheese pizza and some salad. Well, that plan went right out the window, I sure felt very guilty and stuffed after I ate the 3rd piece and a lot of salad with their greasy Italian dressing. I had no control over my eating and overate like I used to do. I kept making up excuses for myself justifying it by saying to myself, well you used to have 3 or 4 large pieces before you started SP. I reluctantly tracked my calorie ridden pizza dinner and oh my gosh, just in a matter of maybe 15 minutes I had eaten a days worth of calories for dinner! I felt so bad about it as really thought I had my eating under control.

The next day, I wanted to know how bad the damage was and I shouldn't have been surprised when I weighed 2 more pounds than the day before. I was disgusted with myself and my lack of willpower.

But, instead of beating myself up about it I got right back to healthy eating. I also keep telling myself, one step back and then 2 steps forward. . .I blew it big time but couldn't change it now so just moved forward. The only good thing is I didn't eat any of the leftover cold pizza for breakfast as I've done that many times in the past. LOL

I also learned that I could have made heathier choices and will do so in the future. I read your wonderful blogs and know many of you have had similiar experience and chose to move forward. Congratulations to all of us!!

    Hey there, gf! Don't sweat the small stuff!. One trick that I follow is to NOT weigh that next day after a tumble off the wagon, but to definately get that 8+ glasses of water and get right back on track, which you did. So good for you! Just order the salad dressing on the side next time so that it remains a healthy choice. I had an experience like yours, only we were going out as a family after a Confirmation last Mar. and didn't get to the best pizza restaurant in town, back home, til around 8pm. I DID stay with the cheese pizza, but I KNOW I ate 1/2 the large pizza after my salad. It tasted so good!!!! I didn't beat myself up either, so good for US! I've had 1 piece since, 2 different times at a Golden Corral. I LOVE PIZZA! You have a wonderful blessed Sunday, my friend!

HOORAY for you for seeing it as just that and not beating yourself up. You are a great example for the rest of us.

Thanks for being you!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon because you didn't dwell on it; you got right back on track and kept right on doing what you are supposed to do.....on the pizza....no way could I resist that either.......my son and I used to eat two whole pizzas between over the period of a day...and then if there were leftovers, I would sneak in there at night and nosh on it......and yes, even for breakfast...cold...*grin* I love pizza and it is one of my downfalls.....but ...I will not deny myself the privilege of having some once in awhilel but so far I have been able to limit myself to two small pieces.....very hard but when there are enough people around to eat the rest, I don't have to worry too much about tempting leftovers.....

pizza is very hard...but you did really great...got right back on track.....so you have nothing to blame yourself over or beat yourself up about.......I am really proud of you...:)

I'm glad you got back on track. I think - no, I KNOW i would have eaten that leftover pizza - THEN started back on my plan.
I must stay far away from pizza. I don't even like to walk past the pizza place near the post office.

    I know how you must feel. These last few days haven 't been easy for me. I've considered to factor in the things I desire into my calorie intake for the day and see how it goes next weigh in day which is tomorrow. I'm not too sure about this plan because I think I go overboard when eating the things that I like, on the other hand I cant't deny myself the things that I like too ofter, when I've reached my goal weight I will have a problem and most likely gain a lot of weight back. So the thing for me is to control my portions and that is what my weight gain is all about, portion control. I hope you do have a good day tomorrow. All the best. emoticon

    Jill I know how hard it is to make other decisions when you have things like pizza stareing you in the face and if that didn't do it just the smell. I am still trying to get over my indulgence which has me wanting everything I shouldn't have. My mind set has to change or I will be like Shortcake and end up binging for days at a time. I still haven't gone a day totally on track since my downfall. It is terribly hard to recuperate and totally get back on track where you once were (for me anyway). emoticon

    Keep reminding yourself that this wasn't a failure, it was just a setback. You only fail when you quit. Setbacks are going to happen from time to time - nothing can prevent that. We are all human and make mistakes. You actually won in many ways. You found out your own limitations .. you found you felt miserable when you did it (a deterent for the future) .. you were able to identify ways to prevent the same thing from happeneing again in the future .. and you got right back on track with healthy food the very next day! Contratulations on making all that progress, even though you had to 'take a step back' to do it! Turn every setback into a boost forward!

Congratulations--I have a sneaky supsicion that you are like me and in the past, it would have triggered at least a 3 or 4 day binge.

Cooking Again--and Enjoying it!!

Thursday, October 14, 2010

When I was working full-time, especially the last few years, I got in the unhealthy habit of stopping by a fast food drive-thru to get our dinner, sometimes even lunch. I really think that's one of the main reasons I've gained so much weight over the last 10 years. Of course, we always super-sized the meals with shakes and all the extras. It was not only unhealthy but very expensive. For each take-out dinner I bought I could have made 2 home cooked meals. . . I actually think my sons and I became "addicted" to all the grease and salt in these meals.

Since being retired and not having the same income we did have to cut down on all the cruises through the drive- thrus But it was still way more often than was healthy . . .

Since I started SP in August I've limited those "greasy visits" to once a week usually on a Friday or Saturday night. And, when I go there I order a salad, instead of a large cheeseburger with fries. . .

I actually enjoy cooking again and I'm having fun trying the low calorie Spark recipes. It saves me money and I love trying new healthy recipes. I also feel very happy when everyone is enjoying a healthy meal together Just yesterday, I watched Meg's video on Spark how to roast whole chickens. She showed you how to prepare two of them at a time and until then I never knew how to properly cut them up. She served one for dinner and shredded the other chicken and put them in freezer bags for using for another meal. As luck will have it, whole chickens are on sale at our local market so I'm going to do just what the video showed. This is a winner as it is low calorie, cheap and healthy--and you're actually cooking two dinners at the same time.

I've already tried a few of the Spark recipes such as Slow Cooker Salsa chicken. It is so easy to fix and nutritious and not fattening so it's a keeper in my recipe file. I would rate it an A. The applesauce meatloaf also meets those 3 important requirements of healthy, low calorie and inexpensive to make. Right now, in my slow cooker is the Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken that we all enjoy. I look forward to eating it tonight over brown rice, which we've grown to like--and still staying within my calorie range. All of the above recipes are very filling.

If any of you have tried or have a low calorie healthy recipe please share it with all of us. If it's a Spark recipe we can look it up. Yes, I'm feeling very creative and know I'm helping myself and family get healthy!! emoticon emoticon

Jill

Note: Another thing I've started to buy is a frozen bag of Tysons's grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Fillets they aren't too pricey ( around $8.00 a bag for about 6). I use them to make healthy low-calorie sandwiches (or you can eat them with a salad) as each piece of chicken is only 110 calories. They heat easily in the microwave for just a few minutes. I put lettuce and tomato on the bun/bread with a Tablespoon or less of low calorie mayo and it's better than the drive-thru ones. Try it--You'll like it!

    I have wanted to try some of the recipes and I will. I have printed off several of them to try. I do cook my own meals but it is hard for one person. I need to invest in some storage containers so I can freeze some of it and then I can make big batches of things. I really enjoyed your blog and I will have to watch that video and fix some chickens. Super idea.

I've discovered that roasted sweet potatoes (which I have always liked) are not only tasty, easy and good for me - they have fewer calories than a serving of brown rice! WooHoo - They're on my favorites list now.

    Awesome!! it is great that you are enjoying cooking again. There really are some fantastic recipes in the Spark files.

Oh, and with that Tyson grilled chicken, you might try Earthgrain or Orowheat thin buns; to me, it is just as good,(well, actually, better.:0 ) and you get the whole bun for what you would have had to count for just half a bun on regular hamburger or sandwich buns. Also, it is whole grain, which I love.. emoticon emoticonbut now much healthier.... emoticon

Tried them all -- No success until . . .

Saturday, October 09, 2010

I've tried so many diet plans/programs these last 15 years when my Dr. told me I was obese and needed to lose weight.

Years ago, I tried the JC program where they furnish your food, with a steep price of course. I did lose about 20#s but had to quit because it was so costly. I'm happy for actress Valerie, she's one of my favorite actresses, but I don't have all the resources she has--and others haven't done well on it.

About six years ago I tried NS where they send you a big box of food to you once a month to eat. I'll admit it was easy to pop those entrees into the microwave and I did lose about 30 pounds quickly. The portions were really small and I always felt hungry. . . I hardly ate any fruits or vegetables but I did eat their food which was mainly meat and pasta. But, once I stopped this program and started eating regular food again I gained all the weight back.

And, of coarse I tried WW several times with little success. However, I know people have success, like my Sister who dropped 30 pounds over 15 years ago and has kept the weight off. The last time I joined WW with my best friend and we both had 100#s to lose. We'd go to the meetings every Friday night and to tell you how much it motivated us we'd always go to dinner afterwards. Well, we paid no attention to WW and still ordered big cheeseburgers and onion rings, etc. I lost a total of 12 pounds in the 6 months I went there--I think she lost 20. She is still going to the meetings and has only lost another 5#s.

I was ready to give up and started feeling like I'd always be the fat older lady. . .Then in a Health Magazine I read about SP's website. At first, I was a little intimated about how to maneuver around and didn't even set up a Spark page. Then, this August, I decided to give SP a try and set up my Spark page. I know this is the best plan I've ever been on--and it's fun. I'm not losing weight quickly but finally doing it the healthy way and I'm more motivated than I've ever been.

I've lost 12#s in the 2 months I've used SP. Like I said it's one sack of potatoes off me and only 9 maybe 10 more to go! I know it's a healthy lifestyle and so doable especially with all the new Spark Friends I've made. Thank you all for motivating and encouraging me. I want to be able to do the same for you and be a Spark success story . . . I feel better both physically and emotionally already!

Jill

    Happy to read your blog. When it finally hits home that you have to change the way you eat. You have to make better choices and learn portion control. Then you are well on your way to a successful weight loss and will keep it off.
All this takes time and being on a site that many others are going through the same battle as you makes it easier. There is so much support here at Spark.
Of course it still comes down to each person, they are in charge of their lives. It sounds like you are in charge, 12 lbs lost is a good start. Everyday that passes you find the Spark way becomes a routine that just comes naturally.
After a while you wonder why it took you so long to figure it out. Smile!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

It's a way of life, a healthy way of life! With all the resources that are available why would anyone want anything else. Shortcuts don't work!

    It takes time to learn to navigate around this site, but it's really worth the time and effort!
The first time it really hit me that I was being successful was when I carried two forty pound bags of water softener to the basement (I admit sliding them down the steps) and realized that I could pick them up and carry them (WooHoo for strength training) and that I had lost the equivalent of those two bags added together!
Now I always remind myself that I'm working on my third bag of water softener salt - 12 pounds to go and then I start on my fourth bag!

Is It Possible?

Thursday, October 07, 2010

Is it really possible to feel better, even move better, with just a 10# loss?

I have lost a little over 10#s and already and feel stronger and more mobile. I asked myself is that possible? Recently, especially today, I have so much more energy. I haven't kept my house as clean as I like due to my mobility issues. Well, today I managed to clean 3/4 of my house all by myself--including moping the kitchen floor. I felt more confident walking around a little unaided (no walker or cane). Is it a fluke or am I just a little bit healthier? I"m also thinking more positive about life and especially the goals I've set for myself. I almost want to pinch myself to make sure I'm not just dreaming . . .

Losing over 10#s is a big deal to me--it's almost one tenth of what I have to lose. So, now I'm carrying around one less sack of potatoes - LOL.

Finally . . .!!!

Monday, October 04, 2010

I have lost 10 pounds in the 2 months I have been active on SP. My weight loss is slow but I'm still proud of the fact that I'm finally getting a handle on my overeating and lack of exercise. I couldn't have even lost 10 pounds without wonderful friends like all of you. You listen to me when I'm happy as well as discouraged. I feel so fortunate to have good friends that care, motivate and sometimes even push me, which I need.

I was so happy to replace the I lost 5 pounds to 10 pounds on my Spark Page. I'm finally in the 280's and not 290's where I've been for the last 3 years. Finally eating healthy is doable and losing weight and feeling better is proof enough for me.

I joined the Slowest Loser Team today as I'm a Tortoise . . .not a Hare. I'm lucky to finally be a Tortoise as I know I'll reach steady slow progress and be a Winner in the end.
