January 9th

Saturday, January 09, 2010

This morning I weighed in at 236.6 I've started with my small steps at the beginning of this week and lost 3.4 pounds so far. I havent been tracking all my food and I've missed days of exercise so I have lots of room for improvement but, that's just fine with me.

I survived a Birthday party yesterday and a social gathering so I'm feeling pretty good about the last 2 days.

    Thanks for being so real with all this! I too am getting it together again after losing a lot and gaining back some. My 9 year old daughter died when I was 25 lbs from my goal, I went back to old ways and didn't have energy to grieve and deal with weight issues too. It is inspiring to see that I am not the only one who still has to struggle - though I wouldn't wish it on anyone. Keep blogging and it is obvious that you have never quit! (and neither will I)!

Night eating

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

Soooooooooooo I guess I'm going to have to start going to bed early for a while. I did my workout today I feel GREAT but, it's 8:30 and out of habit I feel that I need to start snacking!!!!

    I think nighttime eating is my greatest hurdle. If I could just stop it, I would lose weight without making any other changes. Hang in there! Be tough! We can persevere. emoticon

    I'm a disaster if I eat after 8PM. It's like I'm a Gremlin or something. I'm awake. My mouth is awke. But brain is gone, and along with it my judgemnt and any ability to judge when I'm full (not my stong suit to begin with, which is why I decide what I should eat and never listen to my body...just doesn't work for ME.) So, I try to not to eat anythign after 7:30PM. But you are right, it's hard if you are awake and actually hungry. Sometimes I have a No Sugar Added Fudgesicle. Have you tried those? 40 calorie chocolate fix, plus they have calcium and fiber. I've also micowaved frozen strawberries and scraped the Fudgesicle off the strick to create a really fiber rich treat. Even so, it's better eaten before 8 PM!!!!!!

    Maybe fruit or veggies in a couple months will work but right now that would make me freak out! Thanks for the suggestion though... I went to the store and bought some Smart One's Chocolate deserts for now I think that will help.

    Maybe you can have a piece of fruit in the evenings? Or baby carrots? The way I look at it is you can't do too much damage with fruit or veggies!

237.4

Wednesday, January 06, 2010

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.......................

Why????

    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.
