I Had Some Oops and Downs!

Thursday, May 10, 2012

Just thought I'd share this- over last weekend my husband and I had a couple of events to attend- all included eating and drinking, of course! I was determined NOT to go overboard, but to have a "socially" good time. That meant enjoying the good company of the other guests and being well behaved as far as eating and drinking. I ate a healthy little snack before we left, so I wouldn't indulge.
Well so much for my intentions; I had two glasses of wine and way too many appetizers at one event and a similar situation at the second party. Seems my resolve disappeared. Oops!
On Sunday I felt terribly guilty, did a lot of exercise but refused to look at the scale! Until this morning, that is... Of course it's now Thursday, but after getting back on track this week, I found myself smiling after my weigh in... I'd lost another 1.5lbs!
So although we have these oops moments/days it is possible to get stronger and more focused because of them, resulting in that number on the scale going DOWN. emoticon

    Good job at not letting it get you down! We all have those. The point is to learn from them and not repeat them as often.

Instead of the drink or two you could have a diet soda or a glass of water with lemon. Not only will it decrease your calorie intake it will also not melt away your resolve so easily as the alcohol will.

Congrats on the loss and the over all good eating!

Getting on Track - Again!

Friday, April 27, 2012

Sometimes it's hard to stay on track, that's why I like this site! There are plenty of others here with the same issues... And we can encourage each other to do well. One little slip-up in our dieting plan doesn't make us failures, just humans! I had one last night and just started over this morning as if it never happened. Hope others out there agree and support me. emoticon

Getting Back on Track - Again!

Thursday, April 26, 2012

I'm new on this site, but not new to dieting; and certainly not new to maintenance issues! I've reached my weight goal several times in my adult life on WW and other plans. I've found that my "trick" to handling this never-ending problem is to get back on a plan before my weight increases to 15 lbs. So I've decided to go it on my own this time, with the help of SparkPeople's resources.
I joined on Monday, 4/24; and although I am not following the Nutritional Trackers suggested food plans, I am completely motivated by the stories and successes of others! This morning, I was happy to see I have already lost thee pounds! I believe the exercise, water drinking and support are key. Thanks to all who have supported me... I hope to make this time a permanent weight loss by learning more!
