This is so Hard

Saturday, February 18, 2012

So I started my diet back yesterday. I did really good and went to the gym. Unfortunately where I am there is nothing healthy. I count on my bf to help me with that but unfortunately he isnt the best bf in the world. Today he tried to get me to go to Taco Bell. I told him I just started my diet back. Im trying my hardest this time to succeed in this. He dont care because he has never been overweight his whole life. I always break down because I have absolutely no support here. I have over a 100 pounds to lose. I just want to be healthy and happy and its so hard with nobody there for me. Especially the person that always tells me he loves me. emoticon

    You're not alone. I understand the feeling when you're surrounded by people who are thin although they eat whatever they want and get away with it, so they couldn't possibly understand that 1 lousy dinner for us means 1 pound up tomorrow morning. And, yes, it's very hard to resist. Focus on your goals, don't give up, think about what is really important - a taco or a pound less this week?Imagine that feeling when you step on a scale after working hard all week and seeing a pound gone!No food is worth missing that feeling.Lately, I imagine what I would feel AFTER eating something unhealthy - sad, angry at myself, depressed, disappointed - and I decide it's just not worth it.Good luck with your goals! emoticon

    I completely understand! My husband loves all my fave foods and loves to encourage eating them...even though he needs to lose alot of weight too... and beyond him i have my mom who loves junk food (at her whopping 135lb self) you can do it! if you ever need a chat, or a sparkbuddy, i'm here for ya! as much as we want our men to support us, sometimes they just don't, or don't know how...thats why us sparkers have each other :D emoticon

    I understand you completely. I was in a relationship where he was constantly expecting me to lose weight, yet he ate horrible (and even worse... he had a high metabolism so he could get away with it). Luckily, I did the grocery shopping so I could buy healthy foods, but it doesn't help when you're watching others eat the foods you're still craving. I had gotten to the point where I had fast food for 3 meals a day (5 when I was really depressed for awhile). It was really hard to break that habit... it truly became an addiction. However, I did break it and once in awhile I'll get a fast food, but it's usually not at all as good as I remembered it being. There are honestly delicious recipes that are healthy. Maybe you guys can cook some of these meals together, or you cook for him and yourself. Try new things. I try to find favorite meals and figure out a way to make them healthier.

    Well let's change your mindset! Don't think of this as a destination think of it as a journey! I too had over 100 pounds to lose 2 years ago. I couldn't see it and I didn't have any support at all. The thing is that you can find something to eat everywhere! It might not be as healthy as planned, but you can do it. For example, at Taco Bell...look at the Fresco items:) A Crunchy Taco is only 170 calories BTW:) I just myfitnesspal to track calories before I go out to eat. Don't give up on yourself of this process! Trust me I am a 177 pounds down and still losing! Goodluck on your journey!

Getting Back on Track

Friday, October 07, 2011

So I posted I messed up a little bit yesterday but last night I pigged out. I am really disappointed about it but Im trying to get back on track today. About to go to the gym in about an hour. Good news is the food I splurge on is no longer here. No more of that here. When it comes to cheese. You know the one the comes in a block thats a pound. Thats something I cant say no to. Trying to do better. Wish me luck

    Oh my gosh I know exactly what you mean. Cheese is one of my biggest problems too! It's so fatty and I could eat it all day long. I have to just not eat it or have it around if I'm going to lose weight!!

Fell Off the Wagon a Little Bit

Thursday, October 06, 2011

So today I didnt do too bad but kind of disappointed in myself. I let myself eat something I shouldnt have. I know it could have been a lot worse. I didnt eat to much of it. But Im trying not to beat myself up about it. I am going to eat a healthy dinner and get back on track tomorrow. I figure eating a little something I want once a week wont kill me. Its just I cant calculate how many calories and fat is in it. And also I let myself drink a coke. I havent drank a coke in a week. Mountain Dew has like 300 calories alone and 77 carbs just by itself. Thats the main thing Im disappointed about. Hopefully I'll have the motivation to do good tomorrow.

    Can you find some food in the tracker that is similiar? I had pizza yesterday from a no-name restaurant that I can't get the cals from. I was feeling a little guilty so what I did was compare what I had to a more familiar restuarant and put that in my tracker...that made me feel better because I felt like I was being more accountable. Example - I felt like two of these thin slices equalled 1 slice of pizza huts same version.

    emoticon It's difficult to quit bad habits! Celebrate what you've done and try not to beat yourself up when you fall -- just notice why you gave in, and try to come up with a plan for the next time that happens! emoticon

    Don't be disappointed in a personal decision. Just ask yourself if what you did today is what you want to be doing for the rest of your life and if you don't like the answer, do differently tomorrow. Steve Jobs said that. Kick it aside and move on.

Sparklehugs and a reminder... love yourself during the journey. You will get there faster.

Doin Good So Far

Sunday, October 02, 2011

So far so good. I am still doing ok since yesterday. It was hard not eating the foods I love yesterday but I did it. I would have to say my hardest food to give up is chips. I love salty foods. Im trying to make healthier choices. I am going to put some exercise in the mix so I can get fit. Im gonna try to go to the gym 5 days a week. 30 minutes of cardio and 30 of strength training. Then at home walk for 30 minutes and throw a few exercises in when Im bored. Im tired of being overweight. My birthday is coming up in November and I hope to be a little smaller by then. Im tired of feeling embaressed of going out with my man and feeling like hes embaressed to be seen with me. Hes a healthy 150 lbs and I am so overweight but I can do it if I put my mind to it. emoticon

Sick of this!

Saturday, October 01, 2011

I have been wanting to lose weight most of my life. I have been on every diet there is and I have never stuck with it. Today is the day I am going to change that. I am sick of being self concious and embaressed to be seen out in public. Starting today I am going to do better on my food intake. I am gonna try to stick with a 30 minute walk today and tomorrow and then Monday is when the work begins. emoticon

    Sounds like a good plan to start with. Walking is a good exercise. Use the nutrition tracker that this site has for you. You can also use the fitness tracker to track your exercise. Check out this site thoroughly. It's a GREAT site.
