Buh-bye size 22's!

Tuesday, May 15, 2007

I realized something this weekend... my size 22 jeans are too loose now. I impressed my daughter with the fact I can now pull them off without unbuttoning or unzipping them!!

Also, I found a cute rather form fitting denim dress while thrift store shopping this afternoon, and didn't need a 2x, the 1X fit just fine!

not getting excited about this weigh in

Wednesday, May 02, 2007

According to my weigh in, I lost 6 1/2 pounds. Unfortunately, it was due to a nasty stomach virus. Having nothing to eat but Gatorade and 10 Ritz crackers for a day has a way of shedding the pounds! So I'm resigning myself to the fact I'll probably gain back a few pounds.

    I'm so sorry you were sick! Make sure you are drinking ALL your water, it will help you get back to healthy faster, and it will help you not overdo the food as you get back to eating something besides crackers.

had a setback today

Wednesday, April 25, 2007

Today I had the afternoon to myself, and all I wanted to do was eat. I started out well - making good choices with low calorie snacks. But it was as if they didn't satisfy me at all, and it all just sort of snowballed. I even stopped adding the items to my food log, because it made me feel so bad. I know that tomorrow I can start fresh, so I'm trying not to beat myself up about it. But I'm still disappointed with myself.

I don't understand how the mind has so much control over what we eat. What I ate today should have satisfied me. But it didn't, and I just had to keep eating until I was full, and guilty. Is this what an addiction feels like?

    I agree with Wyuanna....don't give up! The only failure is to stay down and never try again. (Oh, my gosh, I almost quoted a U2 song. Eep!)

Our bodies are strange and complex things. Just keep plugging along here, don't give up!

    You are still doing good. This is part of the process. You will have good days and bad days. No two days are alike. It's ok. You are right tomorrow is another day. We all go through it.
