I'm not sure how I managed to lose 1 pound this week but, I will take it! I am now at 176, I'm about 30-32lbs away from not being over weight anymore.

I am going to put my reminder list here again because I seem to need it and I made a few motifications over the last couple of weeks.

I'm going to up my water to 20 cups a day, 5 of which will be green tea.
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 stay under 1400 calories a day
I'm going to STOP eating at night after my husband goes to sleep.
I'm going to start working out 6 days a week again.
(6 hours per week)
I'm going to do my last chance workout every Saturday Night!

Baked Lays

Friday, July 20, 2007

Is any one else addicted to Cheddar & Sour Cream baked lays? I acctually logged and entire bag into my day tommorrow to see if I just ate chips all day where I would be with protien and fiber. Wait the scary part is that I could eat the entire bag and would be within my calorie range it's also below the sodium range and it almost hit's my daily fiber, the only problem is my protein would be low and could I really just eat a bag of chips all day!

I think I've also became a closet eater the last few week?

    Ooh...those chips are tasty. I tried them for the first time a couple weeks ago on a camping trip. A friend brought them and they are one of my new favorites. I know what you mean about closet eating. I've been doing the same thing. When I get out of hand, I just stop logging it. I want to find that same determination to avoid bad foods and religiously stay within my ranges that I had when I first started. I've read articles and tried to find answers to why I do it and how to stop, but I keep coming up with nothing. If you figure it out, please let me know!

I just wanted to blog her today so that on my next birthday I can remember how much I weighed a year before so I offically weigh 177 lbs today. The "Spark calculator" says I should be at 187 right now but, I really wanted to be at 174 today. ( That is the weight that takes me from being "obese" to "over weight" )any who I'm just HAPPY to be down 83 lbs.

Happy Birthday to me!!!!

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.
