Week #44

Monday, September 24, 2007


Well...............I have to say I am dissapointed this month. With myself that is! I lost a total of 3.5 pounds.........now I know most of you are saying..well at least there was a loss and NO gain. I agree but, I also know how awful I was all month. Lossing weight is one thing but, keeping it off is always where I have failed......................I'm not going to this time I will figure this out!!

I see a lot of people on Spark that eat right but, do not exersize and people that exersize really hard but, do not eat right and I have to say this month I exersized really hard but, only ate right about 40-50% of the time. It really hurt on the scale.

Sooooooooooooo with that thought I am currently at a weight of 165 (not bad since less then a year ago) I was at 260. I have eight weeks until my 1 year anniversary with Spark.

I'm still going to take my monthly photo today hopefully the "Turbo Jam ab" have at least toned me up a bit???????

See you next week
Kristi

    Yes, your honesty is totally fabulous! September was a really bad month for the most part...or was that August.... Well one of those I had lost only about 4lbs the whole month...Now that you say it, I did watch my eating and did little on the terms of exercise. Now I'm doing the opposite. Hey, at least we know what the issue is and can correct it right!-Kat

    Kristi - your honesty is what is so fabulous!! You've done this well by being so frank with yourself, and I love that you're sharing it with us. It's okay to be disappointed a little when you know why - it just shows what high standards you have set for yourself.
Go for the 100!!!! I can't wait to add my woo hoo's for you!!!!

    I understand when you get disappointed when you don't meet your standards, but you are right, slow and steady wins the race here! You are doing so great and still such an inspiration to so many! Hugs, Michelle

    Okay, you might be disappointed, but I've gotta say, you've done some seriously amazing work. Look at your start photo compared to the one above--you've basically lost the equivalent of a whole person (albeit a small one) in less than a year--95 pounds! Keep it up--you haven't failed by only eating right half the time this past month; you've succeeded by recognizing where you got off track, and you'll continue to succeed because you know how to put those lessons to good use in the future!

Birthday Cake

Sunday, September 16, 2007

So today is both my sisters and one of my brothers Family Birthday parties and I was asked to bake the cake at the last minuate......................I'm busy but, I said yes so that I could alter the recipe. I used a cake mix and I am trying the Diet soda recipes that are on "Sparkrecipes.com" for the frosting I bought a tub of FF cool whip and a tub of chocolate frosting I am using half the tub of frosting and the whole thing of cool whip. I mixed them together. I HOPE IT TURNS OUT GOOD AND NO ONE NOTICES!

I SAVED MYSELF 100 CALORIES AND AT LEAST 7-8 GRAMS OF FAT! YEA ME

WHAT CHANGED

Wednesday, September 05, 2007



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.

    Kristi,

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 body....it is in lose weight mode as is your brain and is freaking out!!! I have been there too...rest 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!

--Sonja
