Yikes! Some Bizarre Behavior & A Slippery Slope

Sunday, April 12, 2009

After six months of eating great and no sugar cravings (except for one day when I ate Cracker Jacks but didn't enjoy them), I've made non-conscious food decisions that just don't make sense. The other day, I brought home a bag of pizza rolls and when I looked at them I thought "I don't even like them, why did I buy them?" (I'll take them back.) I've noticed that even though I've been keeping track of food intake, I'm starting to add little things without taking the time to put them on the chart. I can see how this can be a slippery slope to over-eating and I just do not want to let that happen. And today I saw a special on Nutrisystem on QVC when I was channel surfing while on the exercise bike. Now, I was on it for the first three months when I started this new, healthier lifestyle, and it was a great boost to my weight loss. However, today I thought that I would re-enroll because I'm getting lazy. I don't want to think about my food choices anymore and want the easier way out - and faster loss - which I'm not getting now. Then I realized that I don't want to eat pre-packaged stuff again. That I just have to keep on keeping on and be a good girl on my own willpower and good decisions. Whew, I'd better keep a handle on all this.

    I see quite a profound and important change that's taken place in you since you started out: crystal-clear awareness. You realized you'd do well to start accounting for everything you eat, even the apparently small items, and that you probably don't need to return to the pre-packaged system.

    Do you have more stress lately? Or did something else changed in your life, that might brought your cravings back.

    Great decision! Sounds as though you just turned a huge corner in your quest for a healthy life. It is difficult, I know. I have almost done any number of other *diets* since coming on SP, and each time have re-thought the choice and stuck with what works in my real life. emoticon

    Good for you! You can't do pre-packaged forever. Eventually you'll have to venture outside the box(so to speak)& you need to able to make good choices on your own!

    wow, it sounds like you handled all your little "mental slips" amazingly well! congrats on that great decision towards conscious eating and against the pre-packaged "quick fix"! i know oh so well that sometimes we grow tired of all the planning and calculating. but i guess we can only make it second nature if we stick to it!
that pizza roll thing sounds exactly what happens to me if i shop on an empty stomach. suddenly i want to buy weird stuff i don't even enjoy eating. it's as if suddenly my stomach takes over and my brain is overruled, lol!
wishing you a happy easter sunday! emoticon

I'm surprised I Wasn't Twice As Big When I Started This Journey

Friday, April 10, 2009

Up until a few years ago, I was able to eat anything in any quantity and not gain weight. Then stress, hormones, and other challenges tidal waved me and the pounds came to visit. I never weighed myself, or paid attention to calories listed on food packages. When I look over this past six months and all I've learned, I shake my head in amazement at how I used to eat vs. how I eat now. And I sometimes pick up stuff I used to eat, just to see how many calories and am blown away. It's amazing I wasn't twice the size when I started this weight loss lifestyle. So glad I woke up before I got sick. That would've definitely happened. I'm thrilled at my progress and impatient to lose the last 17.

    You were so wise to adopt a new way of eating before you did too much damage. These bodies of ours have mysterious ways when it comes to what we weigh! Give yourself a big pat on the back for working hard and doing so well! You're coming down the home stretch at this point. - Sara emoticon

Nothing On My Mind

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

Sometimes I just don't have anything to say here. I get tired of constantly thinking of healthy food, scales, weight, etc. I just want to clear my mind and think of absolutely nothing for awhile. (smiling)
