Week 34

Sunday, July 15, 2007

Hello all I did not have a loss this week but, that's ok I think I'm going to just have to accept the 5 lbs a month instead of the 8 lbs I had hoped for.

I have decided to start drinking my 5 glasses of Green Tea a day again to see if that helps all of my snacking issues. I stopped drinking the tea because it is so HOT outside and I dont like cold tea. It was also making my allergies go crazy so we will see how it goes if it doesnt effect my allergies then I will drink it all week and see if it helps.

See ya next week!

    It's so hard to adjust to the slower losses. Good for you for not letting it get you down! We've all being doign this the same amount of time, so at least we are going through this together.

    I've had many weeks like this lately. What helped is for me to just try and maintain until I was ready to cut back. I gave in and had some treats. I went overboard at times, but eventually got it out of my system. Now I'm back on track, and the weight is starting to come off again, but I still slip up! (Like when I ate 1.5 cups of ice cream last night!)

I've found that the closer I get to my goal weight, the slower the weight comes off. It's not as easy when you don't have as much to lose. You've come a long way, just accept the fluctuations and keep doing what you've been doing. You look great!

    Kris, I am so proud of what you have acconplished and I am ashamed to say that I haven't even started with what I wanted to do. I am going to take your lead and jump fully in to this now.
Once again, I am very proud of you!!!

    5 pounds a month is great! Our bodies know when to slow down and adjust to weight loss, so you may still get a 8 or more loss in a month, but after all you have lost it will slow or even plateau...I've never heard of green tea benifits? Please tell me is there some? Keep up the great work, you inspire me!

    Five lbs a week is still very good as for green tea I am with you I like my tea hot and I drink it all summer long I just have to have a bit of milk in mine so brings up the calories but thats ok I still wouldn't give it up.

I'm really struggling since Spring started. I'm fine in the morning and most afternoons its not until the evening usually right after dinner. It used to be that if I told myself I was not going to do something I didnt do it. But now I tell myself I'm not going to do it and it's like I challenged myself to do it and I end up doing what I did not do???????? I dont know if this is making any sense but, it's really frusterating. I sure hope Spark is around for the rest of my life because I think I will need it that long.

    Oh Kristi, I know how you feel. I'm going through the same exact thing. I just try not to beat myself up about it and say that tomorrow is a new day. I have been quite successful with just trying to keep busy in the evenings. With the nice weather, I've just found things to do outside, or I get the family to walk to the grocery store or wherever we need to go. Just keep plugging away. I too hope that sparkpeople is here forever!

    Do you have any favorite guilt free foods that you could enjoy that you might have tucked away for yourself for such occasions. Your pictures of before and current are trully inspirational. You are doing sooo good!

    When this occurs get up and go, walk/play a board game/ drink water just get busy...also decide early in the day to save calories for the late cravings and choose a jello, or fruit with whipped topping...if its activity you decided on and you are not doing it, get someone else involved, make a walk date...or such so you are have come so far and with patience the rest will come.

I have decided that pasta is poison to me! 2 oz is 200 calories.......I dont know if any of you have measured 2 oz of pasta before but, that is not a lot. Of course I measure mine wet not dry so mabey that is the problem. All I know is that any time I have any type of pasta dish all of the sudden I'm craving everything and I'm never full I feel so out of control like it's some kind of drug. I think I might have to give up pasta all together it has way too much control over me.

Signed why do I even like pasta?

  Oh I do understand the pasta problem. My husband loves pasta salads. Do you know what a PATHETIC amount I get to have??

What I've started doing is having spaghetti squash with red sauce. Ok, it's not pasta but it looks like spaghetti and is pretty good with red sauce (and is insanely low in calories). When I make pasta salads I now add tons of veggies and some beans (I make an individual serving for myself). We've also switched to whole wheat pasta which seems to keep me full longer.
(Oh, but I do miss those days of carb loading with a big plate of pasta, some garlic bread, a glass of wine, and something carby for... oops, sorry got a bit off track there.)

Anyway, I completely understand. We rarely have pasta anymore.

8 Month's (32 weeks)

Sunday, July 01, 2007

Well I'm down 2lbs this week for a total of 81lbs. That mean I lost 5 lbs this month.

I'm not really happy with a 5lb loss, I think 7 is ok so next month I'm going to start focusing on the things that I have started letting go of.

I'm going to up my water to 20 cups a day
I'm going to track ALL my food the night before or the morning of. (and stick with it)
I'm going to make sure that my fat is as close to 30% as poss.
Protien 15% or higher and Carbo's at 55% that seemed to make a difference.
I'm going to start working out 6 days a week again.
I'm going to do my last chance workout every Saturday Night!

If I do all these things and next month I only lose 5lbs again then I will know I did everything I could do but, if I lose 8-10lbs again I will know that I just need to keep stepping it up.

See you next week

    Hi Kristi,

I admire your dedication. Reading this and looking at your progress, it's amazing to see how far you've come, and it's obvious that you have gotten good results from your hard work. I hope I'm next. Meant to get over here sooner and say hi to a fellow camp counselor, but today is the first day that's been slow enough for me to do it, LOL!
