2 weeks and counting...

Thursday, October 06, 2011

Been back on track for 2 weeks now, and the scale is showing improvement, but I have definitely noticed a HUGE difference in my energy level. I was a cleaning fool this week (and I HATE to clean!) I must be nesting for Now I will watch for the changes on the scale next! I am going to a wedding this weekend and a I comfortable in my skin but wouldn't it be nice to be smaller in those pictures?? Ahhh well maybe next major event!! One must press on to see the changes.

Anyone else notice how cold you get once you start losing weight??


Trying to Come Back

Monday, September 26, 2011

I have been fumbling for a few months, not been signing on here and not following my food plan. I haven't really put on weight but I certainly haven't lost any!! I know I cannot deprive myself of the foods I love or I will set myself up to fail, but I have to exercise portion control!

Why does bad food have to taste soooo darn good?? I could the rest of my life on cheese and pasta and of course I have been living on that thus I am here struggling to stay on track! I always snicker when a "skinny" person says "I forgot to eat today" how can one forget to eat?? Food is on my mind from the minute I wake up until I fall asleep...even when I keep myself busy! Maybe one day I will forget to eat....

    I know what you mean about the sabotage I had a great weekend and yesterday I went way overboard to the point of nearly making myself sick so I could start back today with no cravings on my mind. I so want to be under 200 again and I don't know why it seems harder and harder each time. Wishing you well with your journey! emoticon

    Forget to eat? I agree who can forget to eat? I was doing so well and summer came and I just went down hill bad. I gained about 15 of the almost 60 pounds I had lost. I was so depressed that I was almost eating to sabotage myself. Not sure why. I am now back on track though, thank goodness. I am almost back where I was at the beginning of the summer. Please don't let me fall into that again. No food tastes as good as skinny feels... emoticon

Time to be Honest

Monday, June 27, 2011

Ok so I HAD been doing really really well then started slipping here and there but nothing huge. I have not been having the required fruit (and I LOVE fruit) for the past week or so...
What I have had is a migraine that has been with me since Sunday a week ago. I won't go to the ER during my days working and I am too selfish with my days off to go so I am stuck!

Last night I went to bed really early and woke up at an ungodly early hour. This did afford me the time to do some thinking (who can think with a migraine) and I realized how I have let myself slip. I have been losing 1lb a week or sometimes 2 or maybe none at all but I know that won't last if I don't get off this merry-go-round and get back on the track! I have some specific goals set and if I don't buckle down I will never meet them...In truth I secretly think the wheel knows I haven't been doing so good because I have been getting the worst spins possible for a solid 2 weeks...nothing above a 5!!!! They are watching emoticon

I need to go back to weighing and measuring ALL my food (a bag of chips no one sees you eat stills counts as calories in!) Planning all my meals and NOT stopping at the convience store after work in the morning for their yummy luscious sandwich...cause I never get just the sandwich and getting in my fruit! Oh Yeah and get rid of this stupid headache!!!!!

    I can so feel you! One slip and it's so easy to keep sliding. It's a new week and almost a new month. Re-light that Spark and let us hear what you are doing right next time!

    Sorry you are dealing with a migraine. Boy, I can only imagine how tough it must be to function during the day @ work with a migraine.

Hope it goes away soon . . . not to be found again!

Fri...Weigh in Day

Friday, June 17, 2011

Today is Fri the day I weigh myself. I had not been thrilled to step on the scale I was not having a good day although I have been ok with my eating this week. I lost 2 lbs last week but I didn't expect I'd lose anything this week, I almost skipped stepping on the scale. To my surprise I lose 1 ALMOST 2 more lbs!!!! I guess even when we are not having the best of mental days good things can come of it!

My good eating habits staying true to myself, drinking my water and resisting those tempations do pay off in the end!!! emoticon

Out with May in with June

Monday, May 30, 2011

Well the end of May is here and I have NOT reach my goal of being down 25lbs :-( I am however keeping my head up! Lots of changes this montyh...Sunday the 22nd was my deadline for my soon to be ex boyfriend moving out. He had been dragging this process out for a month and a half. I didnt let the stress drive me over the edge but it was tough. I refused to fight with him or get into bashing each other but I really wanted to tell him why I was kicking him out!

I finally had my knee surgery the 23rd and WOW pain I was not expecting! I also have a great deal of swelling, and need to wear a brace until I see my doctor June 2. All this does not bode well for weighing in, so I have put weigh ins on hold until things are better. I am however doing my best to stay on track with eating. The hardest thing I find right now is getting in my veges and fruits. One step I have taken is drinking Orange juice in the morning and V8 juice at lunch or dinner that way I can assure I get my fruits & veges in.

So many changes in May, hoping June brings an easier time and success with weight loss, I should be able to start exercising as well. Things are looking up!!

    good plan with the V8 and OJ. If you watch the Biggest Loser, do you remember the guy that was taught to shadow box when he hurt his knee. I'm not suggesting you shadow box but I believe there is at least one team with limited mobility that has learned to do exercises that they can manage. I wonder if you could try that.

I hope that June is an easier month for you. Good Luck!
