Breaking 30...

Monday, December 08, 2008

It feels good to finally leave the plateau. I am beginning to incorporate more foods into my plan in portioned amounts. I really want to do this the right way this time. I am glad that I have the support of my family and friends.

Emotional Eating

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

I think the cause for any emotional eating is stress for me. I have much less stress now, but when I feel overwhelmed, I eat whatever is at hand. what is keeping me grounded this time is that I am documenting what I eat every day, and this keeps me from really overdoing it when I just don't feel like following the program. Being honest with myself is the key for weight loss and any future success. I fell better when I do not overeat anyway, both physically and mentally, so there is a real incentive to not overeat. emoticon


Small weight gain...It could have been a lot bigger!

Sunday, November 09, 2008

I had a small weight gain this week. I must have gined it all in in the span of 2 days. I ate suring the day during the election at school and during the evening at an election event. Needless to say, I probably did not document the calories as well as I could have. I could not weigh and measure either. The excitemetn of the election really got me carried away.

I also had a real problem with portion control this week in general. I havebeen meaning to get better measuring cups this week and I have just not made the time to do so. After my weigh in this morining, I just measured everyting I could to get a real gague of what my portions needed to look like. I certainly felt more in control and could bea reasonable about my consumption of food. maybe I will finally break the 30 pound barrier this week. I need to remember that this goal will be met one step at a time. I feel better already! emoticon


Problem goal...

Sunday, November 02, 2008

I think the problem I want to work on is preparing balanced meals in the morning. I would like o diversify my morning routine and I am in a rut. I eat the same breakfast sandwich every morning and I am bored stiff with it. I leave for my work out at 5:00 am and I am really tapped when I go to bed at night. I find myself starting to buy breakfast for convenience sake....Not a good idea.

Since all of my accomplishments have been step by step, I will look to that method of getting things done. All I have to do is change one thing. Maybe add a fresh fruit or veggie...hmmm. emoticon

    You are smart to make this a goal. One of my early goals was to try a variety of foods, so as to not eat the same thing everyday. I also vowed to try a new recipe every couple of weeks just so I wouldn't get bored. For breakfast I pretty much rotate 1 cup of Fiber One Honey Clusters & 1/2 cup of milk; a poached egg on toast with a piece of turkey bacon; a package of high fiber oatmeal with 1/2 cup of milk; or occasionally french toast made with egg beaters & topped with sugarless jam. I have a serving of fruit with all of these. Turkey bacon has been a life saver for me as also makes a good Bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich and I feel like I have had such a treat. Good Luck on your journey to good health.

Weight gain...I am okay.

Tuesday, October 28, 2008

I gained some weight this week. It is primarily due to a change in my caloric intake. I have not been as careful as I have been in the past several weeks, and it showed. I have noticed my fat intake is up and I exercised less overall than previous weeks. I was able to works out twice a week on some occasions and I just was not able to. I need to redouble my efforts and watch my intake as carefully as possible. I also have to look a the stress level too...
