I had told my family and friends from the beginning when they say they are proud of me that losing the weight is not my problem it is keeping it off that is a struggle for me! I have lost just over 90 pounds now and I have about 24 to go until I am no longer considered over weight. Yea but, the problem is I have slipped back into my old habbits. I wake up every morning with good intentions but, around 11:00 am I lose control. It starts out innocent by eating something not on my tracker and then escalades from there one item after another.............I then get tired so I take a short nap, the minute I wake up it starts all over again. When my husband gets home from work I feel like crap and I then pick at chocolate and chips for some reason I can not understand. My husband want to help but, no matter what he says I just get angry and I tell him not to tell me what I can and can't eat which is not what he is doing but, because I feel guilty for doing it I get angry with him. I am maintaining my current weight so I keep telling myself that I am ok but, it's only a matter of time before I'm not.

Thanks for the welcome back.

I find that if it isn't in the house I won't eat it. Fortunately with Jim he doesn't seem to mind. I get him chips for his tuna fish( he considers it naked w/out it) but we are pretzel people so that's about the size of it.

Keep up the good job( even though you STILL weigh less than me...ROFLMAO)

    Hi! I don't know what it is with us when we get within sight of our goal. I have been having the same problem. Just remember that each day is a new day to try again and just because you start eating wrong during the day you don't have to wait until the next day to fix it. Try getting out of the house, away from the food. Clean out your cupboards again and don't allow those foods into your house for a while. Hope this helps some. Wish I could be there to help you through this. Hang in there.

  Hey Kristi sorry to hear your struggling. You have done so well, you gotta know you can get through this. Who am I to talk, I know, but the last 2 weeks of summer camp I was just like you. The thing is I felt lousy and tired and miserable. Just ask my family. Suddenly it hit me that if I don't like the way I feel, I'm the only person who can change it. The answer is excersice. I found that if I just started doing something, anything but sit on my butt and eat, I felt better. Next thing I knew Ijust naturally got back at eating right. Could it be that simple? I just know it worked for me. Remember -BABY STEPS
With the napping I always woke up hungry and just start eating. Now if I'm tired I don't eat until after my nap. It seems to work. Mind you it sounds like my schedule is way more flexible than yours.
Keep smiling :)

    I don't know about you but when I hit a new low or feel like I've been doing pretty good for a while I go into self-sabotage mode. I don't know why and really haven't figure out how to quit doing it and wasting all that time, but it is frustrating as to why it's so hard to get it under control. Because I agree, I don't have a hard time losing it, but keeping it off is rough! You can do it though and obviously it's soooo worth it! Hugs to you!

    Krisit you are in great company as it seems that many after losing a susbstantial amount simply get tired. A fellow sparker who has now lost nearly 200 lbs told me that this very thing happened to her at about the first 80 pounds down and what she did was take a deliberate one week vacation and simply tried to maintain. She actually gained a few but took the entire week just to rest her body and her mind.

After that week, she started back on the program, a Monday and that Saturday or Sunday had preplanned stuff, threw out what she could junk wise (she has a family), prepared easy stuff to grab for snacks, started back easy on the exercise and by the end of that week had dropped some three pounds.

This isn't the first time I have heard that tactic..basically fooling your is in lose weight mode as is your brain and is freaking out!!! I have been there it on purpose for just a few days and then go on...kind of like tricking your brain but it seems to work for many.

Thought I would pass it own...seems that those using this tactic didn't get so angry with themselves by simply giving their body and mind a few days to rest.

  Hi Kristi,

I am sorry that you are struggling. I've been there VERY recently. Gosh, you wouldn't believe the crap I put down my throat (ex. frosting on cookies -- lots of them!!). I wish I could say what exactly it was that triggered it for me and how I fixed it so I could pass some great words of advice on to you. Honestly, I'm just not sure. But, one day last week I just said enough and stuck with it. It was a very tough day. But the next one was easier and then it got easier still.

You are SO STRONG! You've lost 90+ pounds. I know that you can get yourself back on track. I believe in you!

Well no loss for me this week but, it should not have been expected since I had the worst binge since joining SP on Thursday and then went out to La-Punta for dinner on Friday...................... This week will be better and I will be continuing "Turbo Jam".

see you next week

    You might find your weight loss slows down now that you are nearing your goal, but don't get discouraged, just keep doing what you are doing. You look amazing.

I can't wait for my turbojam dvd's to arrive. I'm not one to follow suggested food plans, I will just be doing the workouts. Forget about the 10 pounds plan. My biggest fear is that I will injure myself and be out of commission for a while, so I will probably start off fairly easy.

Have a wonderful day. Ann

You are doing so good..I look at your pictures and you have transformed so much...I tell my daugther all the time...she does not weight as much as she says...she weighs less than just look alot smaller than you are I guess!! But look "BEAUTIFUL" so stand tall...stand proud and say it out loud..."I AM BEAUTIFUL AND EVERYONE KNOWS IT" LOL

I didnt even make it one week doing the "Turbo Jam" I think I took too many things away from myself all at once trying to follow the suggested 10 challenge. sooooooooooooooooo tommorrow I will try again but, this time I will not be trying to lose 10 pounds or 10 inches in 10 days! This time I will just be trying for my 2 pounds a week and firming up my body over the next 6 months.

    Joy I knew it was crazy to start with but, I wanted to at least follow it and see what the results were. Instead I freaked myself out with the food changes!!!!

    Good for you for knowing your limits and stepping back! That always sounded crazy. You want sustained loss, not insanity.

    Hi there,
You have amazing progress and love your journal entries. Good luck with the turbo jam. I am in maintenance mode because we found out we are pregnant. Congrats again on the success and enjoy your day in the spotlight.

    Those numbers are CRAZY but, I thought hey wont hurt to try!

You should look at the page that motivated me to get the "Turbo Jam" ( Brookiebomb ). Check it out very motivating.

    Kristi, That's fantastic!!! Congratulations. It feels so good to get out of the 170s (or 180s or 190s). Good luck with Turbo Jam. I think those numbers sound crazy, but the workout should be fun.
