Well I'm at 237.4 this morning. I'm surprised since I did not count calories yesterday and I had cereal and chocolate right before I went to bed. I also did not do my workout emoticon

Today will be a better day it's early and I am already getting ready to workout. As far as I know I dont have anything stressful going on today so it should be good. emoticon

    Kristi, good job on getting that workout done first thing! I did not do well last night. I did fantastic until the kids went to bed. My husband was at a basketball game and it was just me and the dog. I was hungry and again, had not eaten as much as I should have during the day. I ended up eating a couple pb&j sandwiches and some chips. Dang it!

Surprisingly, I weighed myself this morning and was down another pound and a half, for a total of 3.5 lbs. I was so upset with my sandwich and chip binge that I was about to blow it this morning. But after I weighed myself and saw that despite that slip up, I still lost, I knew I had to keep going. You and I are on the exact same pace here, and I am not giving up. Hang in there with me Kristi, so we can celebrate a year from now! emoticon

2010 Biggest Loser

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

I am laying in front of the t.v. right now watching the biggest loser I didnt track my food today and I know I did not do well. I also never got in my workout not because I didnt have time but, because I didnt do it first thing.

I've always watched the biggest loser but, this season is making me cry and at the same time all I can think about is what I want to eat! I dont get it but, I'm craving Carbs like Pasta .. Sugar ect.......................

    Normally I would agree with you for most people however... I am an all or nothing person if I'm not doing calories .. Exercise and water I will do none of them! When I started Spark in 2006 I did all 3 of those things everyday for 3 months without error and the min. I missed one I struggled with all 3.

However I could say 20 min of exercise less then 1600 calories and at least 8 glasses of water?

Thanks for the advice lady's.

    I agree...pick one small thing to try to focus on this week. When you try to go from all to nothing you just set yourself up for failure. Pick on thing to focus on every week and then build on your small victories!

    I know what you mean about the cravings Kristi. Tonight I am feeling the same way and to keep my mind off of it I started cleaning house. I was vacuuming, moving furniture, etc. I broke a sweat! Now that I'm done, I'm back to thinking about food. I hate this! But no matter what happens, I will be on track in the morning. That doesn't mean I splurge tonight. I'm going to just turn in early tonight in hopes of sleeping instead of eating. Hang in there, and take small steps. Maybe just concentrate on getting your workout in and drinking your water tomorrow. Don't stress about the food just yet. It's just a suggestion. Just know that you don't have to go from being off track to completely perfect. That's just not realistic. Hang in there! I'm rooting for you!

    take a deep breath... you can do this. why don't you just pick ONE thing to focus on for this week... like drinking water. trying to do it all just makes it easier to make excuses to do nothing! set yourself up to succeed by making small changes. think how much better it feels to actually DO what you've said you were going to do...

come on kristi... you can do this!!!!!

    I watched BL tonight too. I am trying to kick the carb cravings and stop eating in the evening. I decided to do high fibre for a week. Dinner tonight - brown rice, sweet potato, pinto beans, chicken and glass of milk.

Please be kind to yourself and pick something you will succeed at. I see something you are doing well - you are blogging daily.

True test

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

Ok so I did not resist my snacking last night I had potato chips.. peanut butter .. and Chocolate!

I've already proved that I can lose large amounts of weight but, my true test is being able to maintain it once it's lost and the reason I do not do this is because after I make poor food choice I then decide to continue making poor choices and I quit exercising.

So my true test today will be to see does Kristi keep binging or does she continue on like a normal person????

I dont know we will just have to wait and see.

    I had the same type of night Kristi. Did you exercise today? If not, then consider that your day off for the week. As Joy said, every little choice adds up, so make as many of those good as possible!

I screwed up by eating a ton of graham crackers with milk last night, but i got right back on track this morning. You can do that too!

    What do you way to yourself after you start eating those foods? Your interior dialog is so important. Are you harsh to yourself? Do you get fatalistic? Neither of those is productive. When you make poor food choices, you need to think "OK, I made a poor choice just now. But now, that's over and I can let it go and get back to where I want to be..." or something like that. Also, try to think about why you did what you did. Did something trigger you to start (like a stressor or the site of the food)? Can you eliminate those cues? Everyone will have lapses, but it's important to not go into a relapse situation. I struggle with this too. I think everyone does. Remember, it's not all or nothing. Every positive choice you make, no matter how small, adds up.

Already struggling

Monday, January 04, 2010

I cant believe it's my second day and I am arguing with myself over whether or not I should be eating something. Not hungry just snacky and I have so many bad habits of eating for every emotion is just seems like I should be eating something right now.

Sooooooooooooooooooo silly!

    It IS hard to unlearn years of ingrained eating patterns. I've found that it's easier to accomplish if you don't have high-calorie foods in the house.

If you have a family that doesn't intend to diet with you, your options are: 1) let them eat the 'bad' foods and not partake yourself (if your problem is stopping once you get started) or 2) eat a small, measured portion of the food and leave it at that (if your problem involves feeling deprived).

Good luck, and good willpower!

    progress... not perfection! being AWARE of why you're eating is important too...

be patient with yourself... lots of new habits to get back into. have you considered going back to basics with stage 1? give yourself permission to re-learn what you already know. focus on making one change for today...

you can do this!!!

    I try to keep the things that tempt me the most out of the house, and snack on fruit and veges.

It's a mind thing, once you make up your mind, you have to fight a battle everyday to keep that demon out of the way.
You can win the Journey..take control of the reins.

    How did it go? I need to get back to working out. I miss it so much. Damn hip injury!!! I'm not sure how to do it without hurting myself.

    Take it one step at a time. Remember, this is your year and YOU COME FIRST! That is how I am approaching this. If something is stressing you out and it is possible for you to set it aside for the time being, then do it. If you cannot, tackle it head on, and then decompress with some exercise to burn off steam, or spoil yourself with a hot bubble bath or a massage or a pedicure or something. Just try not to turn to food. You will feel worse afterward!

Hang in there, you can do it! You are already down 2.6 lbs! Way to go!
