I made a step in the right direction today! =)

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Ok so my day started of crappy stuffing my face left and right. At about 3:30 I decided to get on my treadmill and do my workout ( if you know me you know it's hard for me to workout if I don't do it first thing in the morning.) When I was done I felt so good that I took a shower and ran up to the closest store and bought some Spinach, Boneless skinless Chicken, wish bone spritzer and a hard boiled egg. I also bought some apples, oranges, banana's and strawberries. Last but not least I bought some SF Jello for my last night snack. I'm not sure about this one since I'm not a fan of Aspartame but, we shall see.

If all goes according to my plan I am then going to get up in the morning and do my workout!

Wish me luck! emoticon

We aren't very far apart in our starting weights and your blog was done on my 29th birthday so I will be checking back in on you. Sorry to have rambled on and on.

  Hi sounds good. I wasn't to sure about the SF jello thing either because I don't loke aspirtame either, but I thought it was really good. I have only tried the orange and strawberry so I dont know how the others taste let me know how you liked it. If you compare the SF to the regular the SF has only 5 cals and the reg has 100 cals so I will learn to love the aspirtame to lose weight. Congrats on these steps though that is wonderful. You go girl!!!!!

  Way to go on making the changes. With good foods in the house and your working, out sounds like a combination that can only bring good things. Stay positive and keep blogging.

    You can do this! Every day I wake up with one goal in mind and that is to lose the weight. So far this week, having that single thought has helped me stay in my calorie range and exercise every day. I know you can do it. Just think about what you what accomplished by the time you make that Vegas trip in August.

  I know what you are going through. I am still doing good most of the time I have had to get all the bad stuff out of the house and get the good stuff that I havent liked eating before. I am getting use to things now and I know that you can do it too. Keep your head up and keeping stepping forward.

I am not giving up!

Sunday, January 11, 2009

Although it feel like I gave up the last 2 days I am not! I have my workout clothes on now and even though I did not do anything I said I was going to do this week I am going to walk my 5K again today just like I did last Sunday.

Over the last 10 mo. I have gained 50 pounds which is 1.25 a week on average. This week I started out weighing 210 pounds I did good for a couple of day but, then I stopped doing good and went back to no exercise and stuffing my face in result the scale said 211.8 this morning. The way I look at is I have a choice I can either be 260 pounds again in 10 months or I can be 159 pounds again in 10 months. I really hope I chose to be 159 pounds again. emoticon

    You can do this. You did better this week then you have the week before and that's how to make changes that stick. My weight went up my first week back too, the next week it was down what I had gained and a little bit more. Don't let it derail you.

Living in the moment...........

Thursday, January 08, 2009

I know everyone has a different personality and my whole life I have been the organized responsible one with perfect credit and always on time.

I used to think that was a good thing but, I can see know that it is a curse. I always have to have everything planned and if something goes out of my plan I freak out. If given time to calm down I can regroup and calm down and it usually become ok but, not without have a tantrum first. My bills have to be on time or early If I go into a grace period god forbid I have a nervous break down. It's always been like this however I'm usually able to get past things with in a matter of hours or maybe a few days. This last July I started feeling this way and I have not had one day since then where I have felt good I feel scared and insure everyday and it just keeps getting worse. So far my finances are fine but, all I can think about is the what if this or what if that. Why cant I live in the moment and enjoy and worry about these things when they happen? How do people do this?????

I keep telling my husband that I would rather never have anything then to have something and then lose it. What I cant figure out is I'm not enjoying anything I have anyways because I'm always so worried what would it matter if I lost it anyways.

Sorry about all of my babbling.

  Kristi, these feelings really sound like typical depression. The not finding pleasure in anything, the worrying, etc. I really hope that this will improve as you continue to gain control over your eating. That loss of control can spill over into so many areas of your life.

Even the daily blogging, should help to put your feelings into perspective. It's really great how your able to be so honest with yourself and others. I think it will be the "key" that leads to your getting back on track.

I have started to do it for the first time, and it has helped me to "sort" things out and then move on a little. We share the anxiety disorder and I know how that can really play havoc with your thoughts and take over your thinking. It has a mind of it's own sometimes and I know when I can keep mine in check, with meds., I am able to function much better. Hate taking anything but sometimes you do what you gotta do to get thru (oh,rhyme).

Give it some time and I know you'll keep blogging, if there are things you don't want to put out there journal it. Your headed in the right direction. I'm subscribed to your blog and several others, no cost, and hope that I can help in some way or something I read will strike a nerve with me and I will see the things I'm doing. Sorry, I feel like I've blogged to your

Believe in yourself always. emoticon

    Worrying about losing something is normal and understandable, just try to not let it control your life. Perhaps you can try some calming meditation or just some quiet time to reflect on what you do have. Just try to find a few minutes every day to think about what you have. Another good idea is a gratitude journal, the basic idea is to write in it daily something you're grateful for. It helps you focus on the good.

Spark Shirt

Wednesday, January 07, 2009

Well I'm feeling better this morning so far I've drank 2 glasses of water and I have my workout clothes on. I am going to take my daughter to school in 30 minutes and when I get back I'm going to hurry and get my workout done before I have time to change my mind again.

Last night I ordered a new Spark t-shirt and while I was at it a new water bottle. I think today I will go to the store and pick up a new food scale.

I'm still having issues with food as I sit here typing this I am thinking about what I could eat today and honestly nothing sounds good I just want to eat what ever appears to be good at the time??? Not good!!!

Well I guess I should get going so I don't talk myself out of the workout.

Have a GREAT day everyone.

    I didn't know there was a store, I want a t-shirt too. I've started drinking V8 juice when I go to the fridge and just want to graze. I am trying to get back into the routine that was working for me last year.

    HONEYCOMB, you and I think alike. I, too, ordered a new SP shirt and water bottle--a great way to renew and greet the New Year!

I always love hearing from you, my friend.

    I think that must be our stomachs way of protesting our change in diet. Mine is doing the same thing, but its getting better, if you just re-teach your stomach and taste buds about healthy food the cravings will get less. I'm starving right now and fighting the urge to hit the vending machines!! Darn that change in my purse!! But it's 3:45 and its the first hunger attack I've had today, I've had all my snacks and lots of healthy foods, I've only had about 750 calories so far today so I know it's great that its this late and it's only now catching up with me!! I'm off to drink some hot herbal tea.

    I have that problem of nothing sounding good or what I planned not sounding good, but when I just suck it up and eat what I planned, it usually is good. Don't know if that's just me.

  Hey just wanted to let you know that I am right there with you. I decided to take your advice and get up of the morning and exercise before eating and all and guess what? I got up at 5am this morning took my morning breathing treatment and was going to exercise but decided to go back to bed instead. But I can say that as far as my eating goes. I have been pretty good. I didn't eat my breakfast when i should have but I have not binged either. I have also figured out that if I keep some sugar free jello in the fridge that I will be ok when the cravings hit becasue if I eat a cup of jello and drink some water I have only consumed 5 cals. So maybe that can help you. It is still sweet enough to curve my cravings. Hang in there WE CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!
