Stay strong for the weekend!

Friday, September 16, 2011

It is so much easier for me to eat at work because I have no one else to feed except myself. At home, I have my fiance to feed. He wants to eat healthy, but is struggling because he doesn't really like ANY healthy food =( I try to eat by myself, but then he gets upset because he is still hungry or wanted to eat with me. He is understanding of my goals, and doesn't pressure me directly to eat the bad food. He is just being nice when he offers me a taste. Sometimes I will have 1 bite only. I just wish he was willing to eat the same thing as me so I only had to cook 1 meal at a time. Sometimes if I don't make him something, he won't even eat a real meal so.. I dunno. It is a tough situation!

    Wow, my husband eats a lot but its mostly healthy food so that helps me. I would suggest that you continue to make healthy meals because it will benefit you both and eventually he will get into it. It's just a matter of time before his stomach growls wildly enough for him to join in or fend for himself. My husband does that when we differ on meals for the evening. It's okay!

Wishing you the best solution for you two! Blessings. emoticon

    Riverless is right on! You know what you should eat so go ahead and prepare it! If hubby doesn't like it, OK. He can eat cereal or he can cook his own meal. The most important thing about a lifestyle change is not to let well meaning or mean spirited people sabotage your efforts!

Make it a great weekend.

    If there is anything that I have learned, its that you should not sacrifice your goals because you have a significant other that refuses to participate/support/whatever. My husband used to make me cook two meals because he won't eat half the stuff I do. And I don't have time to make 2 meals.. so I gave up and just started eating what he wanted. But then I realized that I'm not going to live y life as big slob. If thats how he wants to, whatever. I'm not going to. So I make a dinner that is healthy. And if he doesn't like it, he can have a bowl of cereal or something that he is capable of eating. I try to make things that I think he will eat. but he is so picky and I was miserable because I was missing out on the stuff that I really wanted to eat.

Almost Friday!

Thursday, September 15, 2011

First off: Thanks for all the nice comments! I do have to wait a while, I just don't want to =D

Second: It just started pouring outside. I like this weather, but it really makes it hard on me for getting in walks with my pup. He is a little guy who isn't a huge fan of the rain. I have to make sure he doesn't float away in some of the puddles around my place haha. I have been doing a lot of indoor strength exercises. My roomie says he is going to start going to the gym with me. We already pay for it with our apartment fees, and it is 3 minutes away. Once I find my walking shoes, we may just walk there & back. He is more into the lifting weights. I want to do more cardio.

I am glad it is almost the weekend. My fiance is working a double though, so I won't really get to see him. Yuck.


Can I be skinny now? =)

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

I have lost some weight now, but I don't see it anywhere - I guess because I have a lot to lose. I do feel better - mostly mentally. It is nice to see on the scale that I am actually improving my health. I just have to stick with it until I see a better difference. I can feel my pants starting to get loose, so I guess I need to start wearing a belt again! I have some old shirts I want to fit into again. It will be an amazing feeling to be able to wear a regular clothing size again instead of Plus Sized.

    DebbyO has it right--patience, Padawan! Keep your chin up and take measurements so that you can actually see the number difference not just on the scale!

Weighing myself - how often?

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

I weighed myself last night before bed and then again this morning. The difference? I was 5 lbs lighter this morning! I thought it would just be 1-2 lbs off. Wow! I Guess I Should just weigh myself in the mornings, or at least only count the weight in the morning.

    I weigh myself only about once per month....

Works for me!

    You can weigh as often as you like, so long as you understand that the short term fluctuations you're seeing are fluid and basically meaningless to your long term goal of fat loss. What is important is the overall trend, is it up or down. If up, you have a problem, if down, stay the course.

    I typically weigh myself in once a week in the morning right after I wake up. I'll admit though, it's hard for me not to become kind of obsessed with the scale, so I have to put it in the closet in between weigh ins.

Another Monday

Monday, September 12, 2011

Back to work today. I chopped up some veggies and portioned them out for the week. I bought a bunch from the farmer's market on Saturday. I have done that before, but then I forget to bring them to work and then some of them go bad. I hate when I have to throw food out because it gets bad!

I also bought some more crafts from Michaels, Joanns, and AC Moore. So now I have more to do for the wedding! Whenever I get a food craving late at night, I just go over the wedding plans, or continue working on my DIY projects =)
