So...

Saturday, October 06, 2012

...if I stay on track and lose 3 pounds in the months of Oct, Nov and Dec I will meet my first goal of 117 lbs. 3 lbs per month seems reasonable. I CAN DO THIS!!! Reminder to self - I won't see progress every week - look to the monthly numbers for progress. MEASURE yourself, that means much more than the number on that scale. 117 pounds is the goal weight sparkpeople.com chose for me, I choose 110, that's only details, one goal at a time. 117 pounds to start 2013 sounds awesome! At one time I would have thought a goal over the holidays was ridiculous, but now I know there will always be something that will get in the way and I have to will power through them. I can have the treats, just not ALL of them at once. I have to keep in my calorie range and remember my health and well being is much more rewarding than the few minutes of bliss from food. Here I come 2013 - healthy happy me!

HELP!

Saturday, September 08, 2012

Motivation - gone! Weight - GROSS! My scale sucks so I really don't know what I weigh. All I know is I feel fat and awful. Bloated and thick in the middle! Clothes don't fit well and all I want to do is EAT! Kids are back in school so I am at least adding exercise back into the mix but how do I control the food thing? I am so sick of always worrying about it. I know have to let that go and just stay active.

    You know you can do it if you commit yourself, so you are your own worst enemy right now!
If you want to see progress, don't whine, just do it.
Read something that will inspire you to do it.
Look in a mirror to encourage you to do it.
Anything that may be helpful to you, but you can do it !!

    Way to go! You're working exercise back in. Now. Here is what I do to eat healthy. I went to the grocery store and bought all sorts of fruits and veggies. Some I know I like some I haven't tried. I taste tested them with my husband. It was great fun, and I found out I love star fruit. I don't eat healthy. I eat food that tastes good that happens to be good for you. If you have fruit or veggies in the house that you love, you're way less tempted to eat the junk.

You're halfway there already. Keep calm and carry on!

    Have you tried a Spark eating plan? If this were easy, probably none of us would be here now. Make sure you have healthy snacks--fruits, raw vegatables--because, if you munch on them, you can't do much damage to your calorie count. A plan is critical. Making sure you're drinking plenty of water is also essential--and it can carry you through some tense moments when all you want to do is stuff something into your mouth.

Try to assess your "hunger" factor. Use a timer and, when feeling like you want/need to eat, set the timer for 10 minutes. If, after 10 minutes, you still want/need to eat, know exactly what you will eat. PLAN. PLAN. PLAN.

Get on the message boards and share with Spark buddies. Keeping your mind (and hands) busy also wards off the munchies. We are here for each other; you're not going through this alone--remember that!

    First...take a deep breath! Sounds like you are feeling really overwhelmed and trying to be perfect about your nutrition! I found that when I focused less on how much I was eating and focused instead on WHAT I was eating, things came alot easier. I try to make the best choices - say if I want potato chips ( my downfall food...) then I will probably have some - but I will have the reduced fat version. If I have a day where I eat everything in sight - well - that happens because I'm HUMAN. The next day I try to think about whether or not my emotions were out of whack - was I angry about something? Was I upset about something? Was I sad? Was I overtired? I eat the worst when my emotions are in turmoil.
Remember to LOVE YOURSELF! Just hang in there and don't give up! The fact that you're exercising is still a step in the right direction! You didn't put the weight on overnight, so it's not going to come off overnight. Be as good to yourself as you are to everyone else in your life ! You can do this!!!! emoticon
