One Week Back on Track - Lost 3.8lbs

Saturday, June 26, 2010

I would have loved to have lost more than 3.8lbs the first week, oh well. I want this to be my LAST first week. I am SO sick of the yo-yo.

The other day we went out to dinner and I had unsweetened iced tea with lemon to drink, a cup of minestrone soup, and then a salad with mixed greens, shaved parmesan cheese, and lemon juice and olive oil as dressing.. and I had them put grilled salmon on top. No bread. I was stuffed!

I made a couple of "Chef Meg's" recipes from sparkrecipes yesterday.

I'm thinking of going back to BodyPump classes. I haven't gone in a couple years or so. I do strength training on my own, but I think BodyPump would make me work harder. Plus, if I did that and jogged/biked outside, I'd hardly have to go to the gym except for classes.

At my current overweight state, I can no longer jog for extended periods of time. I attribute this to being heavier rather than having lost my cardio ability, because even while I was eating my way back to overweight I was still exercising...and I can still do an hour on the elliptical. But I can't jog for more than about 20 minutes or so without having to stop and walk. I've gone for several outside jogs lately and they always end up being walks after 20 minutes, give or take. I'm looking forward to running becoming easier and easier as I get lighter.

If you know about my yo-yo weight loss history you probably don't believe me, but I really do want to end this pattern. I am definitely thinking a lot about how to make the weight loss permanent this time. But I feel like a hypocrite because I say that EVERY time and then I keep gaining it back.

Right now I'm super motivated because it's the beginning of summer. In mid-August we're going for our annual trip to Cape Cod, and I'm looking forward to being down several pounds by then. Last summer (August 1, 2009) Jess proposed to me on the dunes in Wellfleet (see my background picture on my page) and I want to go back to that spot this summer with him and be happy about how I look. I will do it!!

    Wow, that's quite a ridiculous weight loss for your first week, Susan! You must be working hard at getting the weight to come off! Bravo, what you are doing is working like a charm, but I guess you've been here before!

I agree with Patty, if you back off a little and take your weight loss slower (lika a pound a week) it will more likely be a long term thing and not a crash diet type of loss (your body responds MUCH better to a gradual loss then BAM, losing a lot all at once!) For me, my weight loss was a pound a week, and I've been maintaining it for over 2 years! I can hardly believe it myself but it IS possible!!! You WILL get out of your Yo-Yo rut... but you have to be willing to change the way you approach weight loss and body weight management in order for the loss to stick around!

    I seem to have only gained weight during the last 2 yrs, but I am happy that I didn't yo-yo.. I don't think I can ever do that again! I'm just saying that I give you so much credit for picking yourself up over and over, because you work sooo hard at it! I wonder if you just didn't work soooo hard, but backed off a little and lost weight slower, so you could feel better for long term. I think the Susan that I was in the middle seems the happiest to me... just so you know, I totally do believe that its not only in you, but that you'll definitely get there long-term!

Enjoy your summer!!!

    I know you're just venting, but I wish I had some solid things to say about yo-yo weight loss/gain patterns. I do though really think that, as tacky as this sounds, it's a matter of you finding something (food, exercise...) that you can live with for the rest of your life & have some kind of mental click about it. Even though I've been plateau'ed for what feels like an eternity ("so sick" of that too), I think that was my biggest lesson. I also think of the mental burden being so overweight meant to me. Super taxing on every aspect of my life... working out & eating healthy just seems easier than that.
I know you will do it, you know exactly how.

On Track!

Monday, June 21, 2010

It really did hit me when I looked in that dressing room mirror on Friday night. I have been on track ever since. I've been tracking my calories since Saturday and am finally back in the mindset where I realize that this is important. I haven't been able to weigh myself because my husband took the battery out of the scale to use in the remote control! But I will be able to weigh myself tomorrow morning - hopefully that will be a happy experience.
My mother-in-law had our digital wedding photos printed and my husband and I were looking at them last night. When we were looking at one of my favorites, during our first dance when he was dipping me, he said, "Who's that skinny girl? I miss her."
I really need to do this.

Three-Way Mirror

Saturday, June 19, 2010

Wow, I haven't blogged in a MONTH. And last time I wrote my title was "In Need of Motivation." Funny, because I may have finally found the motivation I needed, in a negative way. Yesterday I was trying on dresses at H&M and there were three-way mirrors in each individual dressing room, so I had the privilege of seeing myself in my underwear from all angles. I look almost as bad as I did in my "before" pictures. It's time to start making regular eating sacrifices again.

PS - I ended up buying two dresses, both on sale, and a pair of shoes. One dress was a 12, the other was a 14. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

    Its great that you have found your motivation, trying on clothes for an event or soemthing along those lines always helps me find a little motivation.
I understand that you feel the need to make drastic changes as many of us do when we start to get back on track. Remember though, do not deprive yourself of something you really enjoy. The more you deprive the more you crave. Find healthy alternatives or learn to have it in moderation. I think this was the hardest thing for me to learn. Now that I have the idea in my head that its not off limits but I cannot have it all the time, otherwise I tend to crave it. Plus, I have found healthy delicious alternatives that I really love. Good luck in your new plan and remember that its a lifestyle, not a diet and definately not a curse!! emoticon

    Oh, God.
Is it sick that I have an overwhelming desire to go see myself in a 3 way mirror to motivate myself?
Thanks for the blog, somehow I got unsubscribed! I am on the loosing plan again, going slow and steady this time, exercising to burn about 2000/ week and eat about 1550-1650 cals per day. It's been a challenge but of course it is working, and I am feeling better about myself. I hope that we can both meet a happy medium!

In Need of Motivation

Thursday, May 20, 2010

I am so sorry to have been so distant lately - work has been ridiculous so please don't take it personally if I have ignored you. You guys are the best and as always I feel accountable because you're all still writing blogs and checking in on me even though I haven't been a very good Sparker lately. I've been going to the gym although a lot of my workouts have been a bit half-hearted, but my eating has just been out of control. After the initial shock of the problem at work that I described in my last post, my feelings leveled off to a more normal stress level and my appetite came back full-force. I have been guilty of huge amounts of emotional eating lately. As I noted in my blog title, I'm in need of motivation, so I'm heading off to the bookstore to hope to find an inspiring new read or two. I really need to get my spark back right away...summer isn't going to wait for me!

    Hope you found something inspiring and which will motivate you! I echo what Kim wrote - Spark shouldn't feel like an obligation, but rather something you enjoy and do for fun. We'll be here for you no matter what or when you log on, so never fear my dear!!! Hang in there, you'll find your way, I know you will. You just need that little kick start. For me it was seeing a photo of someone I couldn't stand, and she looked pretty good in her bikini. Before seing that photo, I was eating whatever, working out only occassionally, and not tracking anything. But seeing that photo seriously jump started things and all of a sudden, it was GO-Time.

RUN_LIFT_EAT 5/23/2010 10:53AM

    I remember you writing about the power of diet books to motivate you. Hopefully you found something inspirational.

We are all here for you Susan! Everyone understands life getting busy. Spark shouldn't be an obligation, but something you enjoy doing when you have the time. It also shouldn't be a source of guilt, so you have had some half-hearted workouts, you are still doing WAY more than the overwhelming majority of the population! I think you deserve credit for that!

Maybe you should ease up on yourself a bit. If you aren't feeling motivated right now, then just work on saying "to heck with it" I am comfortable WHERE I AM! Because there is nothing more frustrating than thinking you want to do something, but not wanting it badly enough to actually do it, talk about a counter-productive, vicious cycle!

I'm sure you'll find something inspriing at the book store. And I'm glad you're still around. Just because I don't tell you on your page, I keep checking up on you every few days...
Stress is very toxic, especially for someone with emotional eating issues- trust me, I know. This past month- since the end of April has been a struggle.
I think it helps to take it day by day and not to overthink. What about that plan you had? Is that still something you might want to consider? I know you invested a lot of time into writing it.
Anyways, really glad to hear from you!

    Hi Susan - sorry to hear you are still so stressed out! I would like to recommend a book that you might find helpful - "Thin is the New Happy" by Valerie Frankel. It's a memoir written by a woman who has struggled with her weight her whole life. She details how she goes about uncovering the source of her emotional eating and how that by doing so, she is finally able to have a normal relationship with food and exercise.

I hope things look up for you soon!

Always Something

Tuesday, May 04, 2010

Last time I wrote I was struggling with eating (treats in the teacher's room at school, nighttime bingeing at home). Well, I'm very happy to report that I haven't been struggling with that stuff lately!! There haven't been treats hanging around at school, and in general I've been too busy to get myself into trouble with eating!! So I've actually been eating WELL for a change, and my exercise and water are good too.

But...there always has to be something, unfortunately. When I said I was too busy to get into trouble with eating, that's putting it mildly. School has been RIDICULOUSLY BUSY!! I'm a special education teacher, and really my job could be two full-time jobs: one person could do all the teaching, and the other could do all the evaluations, meetings, and paperwork. With the evaluations, you just never know.. at any given time there could be NONE, or there could be 13, like there are right now. It's busier right now than ever, and when a new referral comes you can't say, "Sorry, I'm full right now, try me again in a few months." You have to add it to the list, no matter how long the list is. Fortunately I actually really like that aspect of my job. However, on top of that I'm also dealing with a very difficult work issue that I really cannot discuss here, but it is very emotionally draining no matter how many coworkers tell me not to take it personally. In fact, it's bothering me so much that it might actually be part of the reason I'm doing okay with my eating (silver lining!)... I think it has taken my appetite away. You'd never think I'd be the kind of person who would lose my appetite from a stressful situation, but apparently I can be with the "right" (there's nothing "right" about this situation) kind of stress. I remember the summer I was 14 or 15, when a boy broke my heart, I barely ate for two days. So it's been known to happen.

Anyway, I REALLY wish I could vent about the situation here, but I just feel like that would be a breach of confidentiality. It's really bothering me though.

    whatever it is, it will make you stronger? not sure but hang in there. glad you are taking care of yourself w/all the stress going on. i dont think i've ever been one to lose weight or appetite when stressed but interesting how our bodies react.

    I know exactly what you mean! There are some stresses that cause me to emotionally eat and then there are others that make me completely lose my appetite.

I hope the situation gets better soon and things ease up a bit for you. It takes a special kind of person to do what you do.

Good job on avoiding the treats. Keep it up!!
