    Every day is a new one. First things first. Forgive yourself. This is not you denying life-saving plasma for's just food. Breathe. Give yourself some time to envision why it is you are doing this and what you want for yourself at the other end. Imagine how that will make you feel. Before you let yourself eat, make a list of things you require yourself to do before hand: Here is mine:

Breathe deeply 10 times.
Do 10 head rolls in each direction.
Drink a glass of water.
Take a quick walk. If I'm at work I walk to the restroom and back even if I don;t have to go.

Usually that distracts me from needing to eat!

Good luck. Don't beat yourself up...there is all the time in the world to get this sorted emoticon

    Oh no you didn't!!! We all have bad moments, (I believe I am having a very long bad moment...a week long one if you will). You just have to get to the point where you stop and think and realize...just because you had a bad day/week/year/ can still get back on track. And it doesn't have to feel like a huge impossible thing. Find what motivates you and stick with it. For me I find if I am way off track, if I get back to the website and just spend time reading blogs, checking out some articles...stuff like that usually gets me in the right mind set. Try some different things to find out what works for you....good luck and don't give up. emoticon

    I always drank water,but drink more since Spark came into my life!! I have a glass that I drew a black line on outside marking 16 ozs. I know if I fill that only 4 times a day,(and add ice) there is my 8 glasses. Nothing takes the place of water in my opinion. I used to be a diet coke junkie, I only drink 1 glass now. emoticon emoticon

    Slice up lemons and limes and squeeze those in for an added flavor too.

Do you like tea? You might find some unsweetened teas to help you get more water in your body.

    I buy those little packets of Crystal Light (Walmart brand is just as good) that go in a 16 oz. bottle of water. I also add a couple of packets of Splenda for sweetness. It tastes like KoolAid, much better than plain water. Also, Powerade Zero grape flavor is really good for a no calorie drink, it is 32 ounces and I can guzzle those (when I can afford them). Hope this helps! You CAN do it!

Ladies What's Your Opinion

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Question birth control and weight gain! Ladies whats your opinion? Do you think that being on birth control makes you gain weight?

    I think it depends on everyone's individual body, but I do know quite a few people who went on the Depo shot and gained weight. I've also heard of people taking one kind of pill and gaining weight, then switching to another and losing it. But I'm not sure if it's the hormones causing the weight gain, or the cravings or feelings of laziness the hormones cause. I have Implanon and it's hard to tell if affected my weight gain because I wasn't living a very active or healthy lifestyle, but it definitely hasn't made it any more difficult than I thought it would be to lose weight.

    The depo shot does have weight gain... I did use the nuva ring and I loved it, I don't think there was weight gain with it... Now I'm on Mirena (IUD) and am losing weight with my new lifestyle... so I love it! I'm not sure about pills, but if you'd like to know more about the nuva ring or mirena just send me a spark mail!

    I have friends who have been on the Depo shot and they have both gained a lot of weight. When they stopped taking the shot, they lost the weight. I don't know if that form of birth control made them hungry or if it was fluid retention but there was definitely some connection.

    I am on the IUD, and I have not noticed any weight gain since I have been on it. I have stopped having TOM, which is weird to get adjusted to, but convenient in the long run.

    You have to go into "Edit My SparkPage" and select your weight loss ticker. I forget if you have to unhide it also...its been a while since I did mine.
