Ten Pounds

Friday, November 05, 2010

I have officially lost 10 pounds today. It has been five weeks since I started on my fresh weight loss journey, and so far it hasn't been too bad. It isn't consuming my life this time but it has become a part of my life. I am re-learning how to eat correctly. Yes there have been some bumps, some slight over eating, but on the whole I am much better at listening to my body when it tells me that it is hungry and when it has had enough.

It would be awesome if I could break the 200 lb mark in the next 4-5 weeks. That would seriously make my year, as it is something that I have never been able to do. I have gotten close before but never crossed it. This is the time. I know it.

Weighing in and other news

Monday, October 18, 2010

Sorry for being so quiet the last few days. I didn't lose anything last week, but I didn't gain either.Friday I got involved in a story and I couldnít stop reading until I finished it because I wanted to find out how it ended. Before I knew it, it was 3 a.m. Saturday I hung out with various friends. Yesterday I was at my parents house most of the day, and then watched Iron Man 2 when I got home. I didnít read any blogs all weekend, so I have a lot to catch up on.

My eating wasnít so...under control. I am sad to say that I did some emotional eating on Friday. I ate about 2,000 calories. Only 90 above my calorie range, but I knew it was too much. I didnít pay attention to hunger cues at all. I did a little better on Saturday, except for the Oreos that I broke open with one of my friends. But I didnít eat the entire package. Sunday was much better. I only ate when I was hungry and I stopped when I was satisfied.

Today I put the weekend behind me. I picked myself, brushed myself off, and kept going. I am determined not to let this keep me down.

In other news, I lost my IPod. I remember having it Friday and unplugging it from my car and throwing it in my bag but I donít know what happened to it after that. It just vanished. If I have to buy a new one, I will (luckily I have money in my savings to do things like that) but I donít want to. My IPod gets a lot of use. I load sermons and audio books on them to listen while walking or in the car.


Two Weeks Ago

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Two weeks ago I decided to start fresh. Though I have been dieting off and on for 5 plus years, I have made no significant headway. My mother started a low-carb diet about a month and a half ago due to becoming pre-diabetic and after many conversations about health I finally decided to starting taking things seriously.

I lost 6 pounds my first week, but I was also sick so that helped a little bit.

In the past I had been on Weight Watchers, but decided that as part of my fresh start that I would change diet plans as well. Especially since I was only half-heartedly following Weight Watchers.

I had browsed around the SparkPeople website before, and I love that I can track on my Plam Pre. I started here on Monday. My second weigh in on this new journey is tomorrow.

This time feels different. I am not only working on watching what (more like how much) I eat and getting in activity, but the mental and emotional side of it as well. This is IT for me. The time it will stick. I just know it.
