Ahhhhhhh........... I cant believe I did this again! My month is up and I cant even say that I maintained. At the beginning of the month I was 207.6 and today I'm 209. I have 1 more day and If I was really good today I could probably wake up at 207.6 tomorrow. I just don't think I have it in me today. emoticon

    Mrs. Honeycomb, stop being so mean to yourself. If it were me, I'd focus on what things you did right. Your next blog I want to hear about some of the good fun things you did/accomplished or that happened to you! May I suggest a nice bubble bath and pedicure to pamper yourself with?

We're all rooting for you to pull out of this little slump! Dance! Dance! Dance, I say. Put some bootie shaking music on and get to dancing! LOL!!

    It looks like we're fighting the same battle....I go up 2 down 1 and back and forth so much it drives me crazy. Trying to lose this time around had definitely been harder, but I'm not giving up....and I know you won't either. Just hang in there!! -T

    You and I are about the same weight. My weight hasn't changed much in a long time but I am ready to give it another push, and I hope you do the same. We can do it!

    I think the best thing you can do at this point is get rid of that scale!!! You will be surprised at how much it will help not being tied down to that thing. It seems as if the scale is a trigger for you. You can't weigh all of your successes on the scale. You need to take this one day at a time, focusing on good health instead of a number. Once you start making consistent changes, that number WILL go down and continue to go down. I see so much of myself in you. I have been a slave to that damn scale for years. I have been where you are. I know what it is like to lose a lot of weight (I lost 115 pounds a few years back) and feel great, just to turn around and gain half of it back. You have to look in the mirror EVERY SINGLE DAY and tell yourself, "I can and will do it!" Stop focusing on what was and start focusing on what can be and what will be. You know you can do this. Suppose you were walking up a set of steps and you fell down two steps. Would you say, "I can't do this?" No, you would get up and start back from where you fell to. You can do this, Kristi! Just keep climbing!!! Everybody here is routing for you. Now go look in that mirror and start routing for you!!!!

I've read everyone's comments this week............Thank you! I'm not here to lose a bunch of weight and be done so I will just keep working on me everyday.

This week was weird because I didnt have any reason that I can think of for stuffing my face but, that is exactly what I did! And because I was stuffing my face I decided I also did not need to work out.

My weigh in this morning was 211.0 not happy with it but, I completly deserve it with the choices that I made all week.

  hi, just wanted to say what an awesome job you did losing weight! emoticon all i have to do is lose 10-15 lbs and i can never do it :( as soon as get to 1lb from my target weight i start gaining again. the same thing - "stuffing my face" - happened to me a couple of times. i think i figured it out this time - stress dealing with stuff or in my relationship with my husband. it' funny, but i stopped eating mindlessly when i honestly talked to him about our issues. i went back to my exercise program too. best of luck to you mrs. honeycomb!!!

    Hang in there Kristi. You're blogging, you're logging in your food and exercise. That is definitely a step in the right direction. It's more than you were doing a month ago. No negative self talk! Dust yourself up and get right back up. I know you can. I've seen you do it before!

    I went through the same thing in January. I started drinking V8 juice when I felt like munching and it helped.

I did really good all day yesterday and then Dinner time came. I didn't have a plan so I ended up eating a ton of Spaghetti not a good choice for me! Then if that wasn't bad enough as soon as everyone went to sleep I drank a lot of Milk and had 4 sara lee chocolate Valentines cakes. emoticon

    Question or something to think about, Kristi... Did you enjoy it? The spaghetti and the Valentines? Really? Be honest with YOURSELF about the experience. Don't "tell" yourself all the things that you're programmed to hear. Instead, think about it for yourself. What felt good, bad, neither? What emotions did you feel while you were eating these things? Is there anything you can learn about yourself if you pay attention to what happened?

None of these experiences are really mistakes. They don't make you a bad person. You didn't even necessarily make bad choices. You ate what you ate and you are a work in progress. Not Paying Attention to yourself and your needs and your experiences... now THAT would be a mistake. Because that would mean you're not really living your life. That would mean that you are numbing yourself and that you are letting yourself be a passenger in a life you are assuming you are predestined to lead. And if THAT's the case... what's the point? Why even keep trying? AND YOU ARE STILL TRYING, so...? that must NOT be the case!

Try try try to take a moment and pay attention to yourself and your needs. What is it that you truly want from all this Sparking? What goal are you trying to achieve? Are you just trying to lose weight? Because if that's the case, any old fad diet ought to work. You'll just have to figure out how to stay motivated long enough for the weight to all come off. OR..... are you trying to change your lifestyle??? Because if THAT's what you're trying to do, you're going to have to do more than go on a diet. You're going to have to, piece by piece, figure out what makes the Old Kristi do the things she did/does so that you can change your relationship with food, tweek your old habits and develop new ones (little by little), and then, AS A RESULT of the changing, you will also find yourself losing weight. All of it. Permanently. Get it?

Hugs for another week! ~Nina

Not so good..........

Thursday, February 12, 2009

So far this week I have not made good choices! I'm going to pick myself back up and start again new today! I still have half the week left before weigh in day. I am planning to have Steak and Shrimp for Valentines and then Pizza Hut on Sunday for Na scar. I still have my last chance p.m. workout and my 5K on Sunday so if I can get it together I could still be ok.

  Girl you can still eat all that and have a great weigh-in day. Just eat alot of salad with little to no dressing before the big stuff and get half of your steak and shrimp to go before they bring it out to you or have them to bring you a doggie bag with our food and cut in half then. Either way you can do it. Take smaller cuts of pizza to make it look like you are eating more and make sure to drink water before eating to curve that appitite. You know what to do you have been there done this before. Just remember to fill up on water and salad and that way you can saver the shrimp and steak. They are both my weakness alon with a baked potatoe loaded. Just remember that we are all here rooting for you and your next weigh-in day. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!

    I just stumbled onto your blog and page and STORY...WOW! You are inspiring me... I lost 62 lbs a year ago then "took a lil break"... getting the incredible eating machine halted and turned around was very painful, but thankfully headed back the right way now! You have inspired me with getting back to it yourself...I KNOW how hard it is, but WE CAN DO THIS THANG! We'll reach our goals this year and we'll be singin'

IN 2009, VICTORY IS MINE!!!! emoticon

    You can do it, you have plenty of time left in the week. It's all about recovering and picking yourself back up after you've fallen off the wagon and trying not to beat yourself up for it.
