Weekends are not helping me :/

Monday, September 26, 2011

I am so focused during the week then the weekend comes and hubby says shall we have a takeaway and it all goes wrong... Part of me blames him as he should be more supportive but then it's me that should say no - So two bad weekends in a row. However I have still lost weight I am still exercising and I have logged back in albeit after a few days of poor diet and no Nutrion Tracking. So my challenge for this weekend is to say NO to the rubbish and see how I go. XX

    I saw your Blog title on the "Parents of School Age" site and thought, "Wow, that's been me lately". I really feel for you. I should be able to say "NO". Goodness, I've been at this since 2008! I just lost another 3 lbs and maybe I was feeling good and felt like I could cheat.

Maybe we can all try to only cheat a little. I read that if you cheat, you need to go back on the wagon 3 straight days of good to counteract it. Perhaps if we have a salad with the bad burger and only eat 1/2 of that burger as well.....get the idea. We don't have to completely kill our lifestyle changes.

I'm in for trying, are you guys??

    Wow, so glad to know that I am not the only one with this issue. My wake up call came when I realized that I was spending all week, taking off what I ate on the weekend. I wanted more than that, so am learning to plan better for the weekends. Sometimes I still get messed up when plans change, but am doing much better. Hope you can also.

    I'm so with you on this one. It's so hard to resist on weekends, when I don't have the same routine. I'm trying to keep myself busy, and eat as I do during the week when I'm at work. But it's tough. Good luck. I hope we can beat these weekend blues.

Almost slid down the slippery slope :(

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

I haven't been so good since before the weekend and I am slipping into bad habits and haven't been logging in as much. Just read someones Blog who has reached their goal and it has made me get a grip again. I really want to do this but still I can find excuses or others to blame for my bad habits. But it is about me and only I can say No and only I can change. So I still lost weight and am still being careful but I can do better and I am hopefully in a better frame of mind from today (again!!) emoticon

Day 12

Thursday, September 15, 2011

I am still doing it!!! Because I can eat anything in the cupboard as long as I track it and it stays within my goal figures it isn't costing me a fortune in buying "Diet stuff" I am slowly replacing things bit by bit so all available choices are healthier but it isn't costing me a fortune it is simply controlling my portion sizes which I am so aware of now I am counting calories and I am still getting full after my meals, I am hardly missing chocolate at all and I have a really small bar or a couple of biscuits if I have enough calories left. All these years of eating like it's my last ever meal and I am not missing out on anything by eating less than half the amount I normally do, lets hope the scales are kind on Sunday, I haven't missed one dog walk since I started so he is happy too and the kids are getting more exercise too as they enjoy the walk and are coming with me most days. I feel more capable and am really starting to believe I can do this and it's not a phase but really a positive life changing experience :)


End of 1st week

2.4kg down so I am so happy and still feeling positive and raring to get onto week 2 emoticon emoticon


Feeling the benefits already :)

My skin is clearer. my eyes are shinier and I am not desperate for chocolate for the first time since I can remember...I may rephrase that later if I eat some but I usually HAVE to have something sweet with EVERY hot drink and after/with every meal and/or snack. I am probably saving 2000 claories a day not eating chocolate. I am eating plain biscuits instead as a treat and am feeling fuller already after smaller meals......I am hoping with every ounce of my being I still feel like this and can continue to make such good progress it's almost a week and I feel better, things can only get better. I am really getting quite hopeful that I have finally found something that motivates me and that really will change my attitude for life. xx
