The Scale Isn't The Be-All and End-All

Friday, April 13, 2012

So, if you remember from a previous blog, I went a little crazy on cookies last weekend. This resulted in a supposed 5-lb weight gain on Monday morning. I've been back on my pretty strict Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet and have been pretty close to flawless this week. I can't help myself...I get curious and so I've been weighing myself every day to see if I am back at the place I was last week (when I boasted my 12 lb total weight loss).

It's been slow going but the scale IS going down. This morning, I was a bit disappointed because I'm still a little over a pound away from that all-time low that I hit last week.

I thought, "Well, it's OK. It's still a total weight loss of 10 lbs, which has been a milestone for me and that's pretty impressive. Plus, I know I'll eventually shed that extra pound if I continue to make good choices."

Then, I went to put my clothes on that I'd chosen for work. Truthfully, I chose some capri pants because I wanted to wear my tennis shoes. I have planned a BIG walk into my work day to run office errands.

Well, wouldn't you know it? Those pants slid on so easily and buttoned so comfortably and they haven't felt this comfortable and not tight in...well, a year???

It was then that I knew...the scale doesn't tell the WHOLE story. Several family members have made note that I look smaller.

Have you heard that any fitness program takes 12 weeks? After 4 weeks, you start to feel it in your own body. After 8 weeks, those closest to you begin to notice a change. And the rest of the world starts to notice after 12 weeks. Most people just give up too soon.

Well, guess what week I'm in??? You got it...Week 8. You know what that means??? In 4 weeks, NORMAL PEOPLE will notice!!! How exciting!!!

    emoticon emoticon i get a little too attached to the scale too! especially since i got a proper dr's scale a few weeks ago! but i know i cant keep watching it everyday. its like watching water boil. lol i gotta just keep getting through the day making good choices and getting in excercise when i can. (my job is physical so thats my excersice for the day when i work).
your doing great though. glad your determined! i am too!!! my first goal date (THIS ROUND) is june 6th. thats week 13. lol and yes i feel like the first 20 most people will NOT notice. and about 25 down they might think you lost 5 pounds. just the way it goes when your heavier. i love how you put "normal people will notice" cause there are a few who are VERY perceptive! lol
congrats on digging in your heels!! emoticon

The scale is a liar and is not doing right by you!
End the relationship!

    Isn't that a great feeling?!! Don't put all your hopes on the scale, because there are sooo many factors that can cause it to go up or down on any given day. Stick with what you know works, and the scale will eventuall catch up. Until then, go by how you feel and how your clothes fit. I know I put way too much emphasis on that scale sometimes too, but we need to not let it define our success!

    I agree, I am a slave to my scale but I have noticed lately that I am getting into clothes that I couldn't have at this "weight" before and now they fit! I've come to the conclusion that, like you, the scale is NOT the last word! And with this, the scale really doesn't hold the same power on me that it once did. But I still use it, it gives me perspective but it doesn't ruin my day one way or another any more.

    During the weeks when I did not see the scale being cooperative, I discovered that the tape measure was really my best friend! When I started this journey, I had NO pictures (refused to allow any) and I did not buy a tape measure because I didn't want to see it. Once I lost about 15 pounds, I started measuring everything - all the time. I have weighed myself at numerous points in the day (all different) and on several scales in places I frequent (all different!) I accept the weight on my home scale, which MUST be in the exact same position on the bathroom floor (I made marks on the floor to be SURE!) which I check, without clothes, at 6:00 AM EVERY DAY! As long as THAT scale goes down or stays the same, I'm fine. The other scales are all used by lots of people, so they're generally off balance. My tape measure ONLY goes in the right direction - and I'll bet yours does, too. God bless . . .

Vision Collage

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

So, you know when you first sign up for SparkPeople and they tell you to make a Vision Collage to motivate yourself? I confess...when I FIRST started, I was NOT healthy and I didn't really care about being healthy either. It was just an idea I was toying with...so I just kind of took the points and didn't really do the work of making the collage.

"I'm just not that artsy," I thought. "I know what I am working toward...in my head...why do I have to do some dumb art project?"

But, lately, I've been reading through "The Spark" and I am finally near the end of the book where it talks about goals and I'm really starting to get into it. In fact, this morning, I went through and joined a couple new SparkTeams and adjusted my team goals on ALL of my teams. It's like a light bulb finally flipped on and I just "get it" now.

And, for the first time, I had a desire to graphically represent all that I'm striving toward. So, I warn you...it's not fancy or cute or artsy...it's simply images and inspiring quotes that motivate me. But, boy do they motivate me!!! Out of the thousands of images I could have placed on this collage, these are the elite.



So, let's take a walk through this imagery, shall we?

1. This girl kind of looks like me. She is Asian and she is about the size I'd like to be someday.

2. Red Velvet Tank Top. I bought a red velvet tank top that looks almost EXACTLY like this for my honeymoon. It is so beautiful and so sexy and I've kept it for 11 years, hoping to one day wear it again someday.

3. When it comes to exercise, this is just how it is with me. I either do it or I don't. Period.

4. SparkPeople Logo - Duh.

5. Coach Nicole! With the encouraging truth that only 10 minutes can change your life.

6. Apolo Ohno - Zero Regrets guy. Come on! Is there anyone this dude DOESN'T motivate??? He's a BEAST!

7. Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution - Jamie reminds me that healthy food is a life or death matter for me and for my family. And my food choices will affect my kids.

8. Robert Wadhams (ON2VICTORY) - The first SparkPeople Motivator that ever actually got through to me. His loss of over 100 lbs and counting, along with his very genuine encouragement and his overwhelming support of my health journey has already been life changing. Apolo Ohno's one thing...but here's a REAL LIFE guy that has ACTUALLY done this. That means I can do it too!

9. My favorite exercise quote of all time. I think this quote every single time I am working out. EVERY SINGLE TIME.

There you have it. You should make one of these suckers. It's actually really FUN!

You laid it all out there so easily.
The motto is one I use everyday for when I am out walking . The times I have that little voice asking me, "What are you doing out here". I see that phrase, " No matter how slow you go you are still lapping everyone on the couch."
Stay positive and believe you can and you will.

    This is AWESOME! I've been a member for years and I know that I need to do a vision collage, but I put it off because I want it to be "perfect." The simplicity of yours is what makes it so awesome! You're clear about what each picture represents to you.

I lose sight of what I really want in life (to be a smaller, healthier me that can enjoy life). I know that doing a vision collage could probably help me keep my focus on that. Thank you SO much for sharing yours and what it means - you've truly inspired me (and at a time when I'm in dire need of inspiration!).

    I love it! I've been on SP for a while & read the book & even did weight watchers a few years ago. They also talk about making a "visual collage" or physical reminder of what you want. You just motivated me to think about what I would put on mine. I'm not very artsy either, but I have a wedding/trip back home this summer & maybe a little collage reminder is all I need to get back on track w/healthy eating & exercise, not just for me, but for my hubby & kids!

Thank YOU for encouraging me today!

Chaos In The House

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Truthfully, I sat down to write a most eloquent diatribe on how I am once again suffering through the 2nd Day Sugar Withdrawal Headache, because of my huge binge on cookies on Sunday. I was going to say something really well-worded and inspirational about how staying healthy is worth it and how giving in and bingeing just means I have to go through this feeling of YUCK all over again. And then I was going to say something about the entire reason for my health journey being so I don't have to feel terrible like this...etc etc.

But, instead, the moment I sat down, chaos ensued in our house. My mother-in-law, who has been gone for two weeks got home. The girls (6 and 9) came home from swimming at the YMCA with their friend, who had so sweetly gifted them with a bunch of cute toys and candy. My 4 yr old boy spied the Ring Pop in my 9 yr old's bag and demanded it. She said "no" of course...and he, being totally exhausted and ready for bed, threw the mother of all tantrums and screamed his lungs out. At this very moment, my 6 yr old came to me and asked me to "fix" her hair. You see, she tried to put her gum behind her ear like Violet Beauregard from Willy Wonka. Are you picturing this scene???

It is at precisely this point my husband decided to DO DISHES. WTH???? The whole entire world was falling apart and everyone was screaming and it was just...uggghhh.

Anyway, yay....inspiring words...healthy journey...yippee...whatever. I just want 3 points for this blog. Let's be honest.

    As a child, I frequently slept w/ gum. Sometimes, the gum migrated to my long hair. If only we'd known - Peanut Butter will take it out. I actually never tried it on hair (and obviously, if you have peanut allergies you can't do this), but i did try it on my dog - she stepped in hot sticky gum and was a mess. She loved the PB approach! (WD-40 works as well, but who wants that on their dog or in their hair!)

As for the whole thing - loved it! It is amazing how things just all manage to hit at once!

Disappointed In Myself...But Moving Forward

Monday, April 09, 2012

I'd imagine there will be SO many of these blogs on SparkPeople today. I had one HORRIBLE day yesterday, food-wise. OK, the entire weekend wasn't great.

Actually, Saturday was excellent until I bought those sugar cookie decorating kits for the kids to do on Sunday and my hubby and kids went out and left me all alone in the house. I thought, "Just one...nobody will notice." Well, one turned into 3. Three cookies. And I had also snuck two bite-sized pieces of chocolate at an Easter egg hunt earlier that day. Still...it wasn't HORRIBLE. Just a small blip in my overall magnificent success over the previous week.

Then, Easter. I told myself I'd follow South Beach and wouldn't cave in. But, then those cookies came out again...and I had one. Then, I thought I'd nibble a couple jelly beans and maybe just have a bun with a hot dog...it's just one bun! Managed to have my burger with no bun and did eat a TON of veggies, so those were about my only redeeming choices yesterday. Honestly...I lost track of how many cookies I had yesterday. THAT is bad.

Scale read 5 lbs heavier this morning. I'm sure that's not all "real" weight gain...I had a LOT of grilled food this weekend so I'm sure a lot of it is water gain and salt. But, it's very discouraging because I did SO WELL last week. It's like I sabotaged myself.

There is a bright side...I feel that I've learned a very important lesson. I can't be trusted to "just have a little" without completely falling off the wagon. At the same time, I understand that never having "just a little" will be almost impossible if this is truly a lifestyle change. So, I need to figure out a way to be able to have my bites of cake here and there and eat them too...maybe have my husband help me and only have my "cheats" when he is around to see and help monitor. It's the secret eating that gets way out of hand...and makes me feel the worst later on.

That being said, it's a new day. And today I choose correctly. Even if I did gain 5 lbs for real, which I'm sure I didn't, I wouldn't want to give up now. Why go completely backward? That would be ridiculous. Besides, I can't forget how wonderful it felt to be healthy. I'm not giving up. I'm on this road for as long as it takes.

As for the cheats, I know what works for me is having single serve cheats. For example I can't buy a pint of ice cream because I will eat it- but I buy the single serve ice cream like the skinny cow ice cream cup and that satisfies my sweet tooth and once it's gone it's gone.

    I know just what you're going through! I am learning the same things, that just one bite or taste won't hurt.... but it does! It sends me over the edge and I end up binging on all the wrong foods.

I need to learn to incorporate those foods into my eating in a healthier way, so that they don't end up setting me into a binge. I haven't quite figured out how yet, but if you do, let me know!

South Beach + Seder = Disaster

Saturday, April 07, 2012

Well, friends...the Jewish Seder was just beautiful. Absolutely loved the story, the tradition, the food and the friends. Just one problem...

emoticon

As a general rule, when a person has been eating around 1000 - 1200 calories of only veggies and lean protein, it's probably not a good idea to just dive right into a large meal consisting of 4 mandatory glasses of wine.


emoticon emoticon

I was feeling just fine and completely enjoying myself (albeit, I felt a *little* warm, but that's just because I don't handle wine very well. Haha...hint). About the time that the gifelte fish came out, I was pretty buzzed.

emoticon

Suddenly...and I do mean suddenly...I felt dizzy.

emoticon

I was stuck in this little table with nowhere to go and my husband was blocking the way out of the table. We were with 5 people we've never met and we were in the middle of a set of blessings. But, I HAD to get away from that table.

emoticon

I told my hubby, "Get up. Get up NOW." He hesitated and I swear I almost threw him to the ground! Literally tried to run to the restroom and, well, I lost it all. Body could not handle the sugar and alcohol.

emoticon

I really should have had sparkling grape juice...like a little kid. But I usually can handle a few glasses of wine and these were pretty small. But I forgot about how I basically had an empty stomach and how my body was not ready for that. I felt SO guilty for, well, puking in the middle of my friend's holy dinner.

emoticon

Luckily, I was able to recover fairly quickly and enjoy the rest of the meal...on the couch...which was right near a window with a cool breeze. It was SO embarrassing.

emoticon

Hmmm....bright side? I only gained 0.1 lbs.
