One week

Sunday, July 13, 2008

So it's been about a week since I began this journey and I have lost 7lbs. I know it's water weight but to see such dramatic results both in numbers and physically makes me believe that I can really do this.


After 7

Sunday, July 06, 2008

Ok so I have been really good this past week in not eating past 7 but for some reason today (sunday) I felt so hungry past 7. I had a lot of protein, fiber and veggies but I still felt hungry. I had some fresh mango and pineapple and 2 fat free exotic yogurts and I feel so guilty :o( I know my metabolism is slowly speeding up but I don't want to feel guilty :o( Today I felt as though I failed at not eating past 7 and I am a little disappointed in myself :o(


So proud

Saturday, July 05, 2008

I am so proud of myself. I stuck with my exercise and diet plan and lost three pounds. I know it's not much but I can already feel the difference in my arms and I see the difference when I sit. I have a little less stomach that my arms touch. I think Spark is really going to help me achieve my goal and keep me on track.


tiny hiccup

I did it again. I resisted chocolate for the second day in a row :o) But I did have a freezie :o( I know it isn't as bad as chocolate because it has no fat content but I felt so guilty having it because of the sugar content. I have to not fall into temptation :o( I know I will do better next time :o)

    Don't feel guilty about that freezie! We can't give up *everything* and I've found if I get in that game, well THIS has fat, THIS has sugar, THIS has cholesterol -- we we wouldn't be eating anything, now would we? Resisting chocolate for even 2 days is something to be proud of, in my book! Hang in there! emoticon

    Its baby steps! you're doing great! you resisted chocolate and look at how you are changing your lifestyle--your are thinking about the food before you eat it, weighing whether you want to eat it and resisting it if you dont think you should have it! you're doing GREAT!

Proud of myself

Wednesday, July 02, 2008

Today I resisted both chips and chocolate and went for peanuts and grapes instead. This is a huge deal for me because I am such a chips and chocolate addict. Today I thought to myself that I can really do this :o)

    I too, love the salties and the sweets! It is definitely hard. There are times when grocery shopping that I'd love me some Cheetos or some Lays chips or have that chocolate bar. But once you start munching on the healthy snacks and losing the weight through exercise, you'll want to continue your goal. Don't get me wrong, there will be temptations but perhaps you can reward yourself once a week with a a little bit of dark chocolate or one serving of chips. Good job on reaching for those healthy snacks!!!! Keep it up! emoticon

    You CAN really do this! That is a BIG STEP resisting such things as chocolate and chips. You should feel very very proud of yourself. Keep up the good work!
