Why is this taking so long??? I see the numbers go down slowly but it's so hard to watch, I get sooo frustrated... how do i keep myself motivated?

I have gone from 155 to 145 though


Solving the mystery

Thursday, April 14, 2011

As far as exercise goes, I'm pretty good.

I just wish I didn't like to eat soo much!!!
I figured out that even if I exercised as the first thing in my day, I can still have a tendency to overeat if something sweet flares up my sweet tooth. Then it turns into a huge binge and the exercise I did just cancels out the eating I did so basically I will get no results.

So... I think the reason is that I'm not recording my intake as diligently anymore. Also, I'm trying to eat less, but get hungry later. So My goal to improve even more will be to be diligent about recording it EVERYDAY, and make sure I get all of my three meals in with just the right amount of healthy food in me, but I will make sure that I'm not starving.

    I have a sweet tooth big time :) What has worked best for me is to break my meals/snacks into 5 or 6 a day--saving between 100 to 200 calories for a treat. Been working great for me. The two biggest benefits: I dont ever get ravenously hungry, because I am eating every 2 to 3 hours. And, I dont ever feel restricted, because I still treat my sweet tooth during the day.

Major binge averted

Wednesday, April 13, 2011


So I had a mini-binge... but I stopped myself before it got out of control!!!

My day for breakfast and lunch were super healthy.

BUT. For a club there was a special occassion and I had a slice of cheese pizza.
When I went home, I had the other half of an advocado cheese and meat sandwich probably the size of my palm

Then two cups of cheese nips...
But it could have been worse!! I had a really stressful day, and I know if I wanted to, I could have finished off that whole box of brand new cheese nips but I didn't!

And I also ordered the spark audiobook too! So I can listen to it secretly when I drive!

My weight isn't going down as fast as I want it to, but I figure things take time, and I should focus on how good I feel, how I like picking out clothes, how I can see my shape more, and that my clothes fit better! basically, i knew that if I kept eating, it WOULDN'T make me feel better about the situation, in fact it would probably make me feel worse, so I stopped before it got too out of hand.

Anyway peace and love,

Alright, so it's been AGES since I've updated, but I've managed to go from 150 to around 143 according to my scale...

BUT... weekends always seem to be hardest. I just had a binge tonight, and I feel awful. I know I'm going to work it off in the morning, and work hard to make sure I burn off a good portion of it... but man, it sucks. I hope I didn't undo all that I've lost, though 1 night just 1 night can't completely mess up my progress right?

Do you guys occasionally deal with binges? And how do you keep yourself full throughout the day. Maybe I'm just not eating enough and when I'm trying to restrict calories, I try to restrict them too much? Any thoughts, suggestions, criticisms, I'm totally open to any feedback! :)

    I am having the exact same problem as you and would love advice from some people who have learned to deal with the problem. I find that counting calories is easy, but I never feel full, and I think it may be because of what I am eating. There's a link on the main page today I think it's the editors choice? It has some interesting ideas about how different salad choices can fill you up, so maybe check that out.

I def. know what you are talking about though. I over ate today too, and I had done so good this week, and it's just frustrating. I don't know why I do it.

Motivation Part 2

Wednesday, March 02, 2011

I'm trying to find stuff that's relative to some really inspirational people who took up running, and how all they needed was a little inspiration and courage. To call yourself truly happy with who you are - that's gotta be an accomplishment.


Above is Ben's 120 pound journey


And a link to a spark people article about how this lady went running not caring even if she was in the 200's weight wise...

So, tomorrow morning, I'll be out there, maybe looking silly, but who cares? right?
