When You Play, You Pay (Dreading First Weigh-In since Thanksgiving)

Saturday, December 05, 2009

Okay, yes, I take complete responsibility for my transgressions. I know the scale will tell a woeful tale on Monday morning weigh-in. After a year of almost perfect program, I slid (since October) in ways that I've surprised myself. Yikes! Seems I have to really take inventory to find out what's really going on with me and why I've lost some of my motivation. Have a good day, friends.

    It can be hard to get back on the wagon again after falling off. I've decided I'm going to track what I eat, no matter how bad it gets!

    I decided I'm going to try tracking for the whole day BEFORE I eat anything in the morning. As the day progresses I can eat what I've tracked and NOTHING else. Usually if I can get a few days of in control eating under my belt, I feel so much better and sticking with plan seems easier. Kind of like de-toxing! Also rev up the physical activity a little. Those endorphins you release can be really motivating! I'm rooting for you!

    I think most of us suffer from some lack of motivation at this time of year, but that's still no excuse for any of else! It's a hard nut to crack, but we can do it.

    I agree with Laurie, Let us help you to stay motivated just as you help us. If that nasty old scale is bad just get up and emoticon you know what you have to do. Move more, forgive yourself, help others and eat right. Star emoticon

    Sounds like ME. I had pie on thanksgiving, then this week, Chinese food on Monday and Indian curry (fattening) yesterday, friday. AND I ate too many sweet desserts these past couple days. Now I have to really stop this, and figure out why I lost my motivation. I want us both to succeed and stop the self-sabotage.

    Sometimes it takes a backward slide to make us reevaluate what is going on. This is only a minor setback that you will overcome.

    sweetie, where is your weight tracker? i thought you had a slide thing like all of us?? It would help us to know when to say "WooHoo! You're doing great!" or "Keep up the good work" or even, "Yeah, ya slipped, but you know how to come back and you will; i have faith in your abilities." Think about that and lets see your results! Hugs to you (Blame me in private please!!) Im trying to SPARK ya up! Laurie

"The Spark" (book) Can't Arrive Soon Enough

Friday, December 04, 2009

I have to admit that I am at a point with this forever plateau (that I thought I'd broken, but didn't) where I'm beginning to get discouraged and despondent. I'm really looking forward to this new book as a tool to get me going again.

    I'm with your Jesse That book can't come soon enough. I know what to do, but I can't be on the computer all day looking up stuff. I think that the book will be an additional tool that will be fantastic. Star emoticon In the meantime, keep moving and watching those calories.

  Sit down and run a thought process through your mind,
like calories ingested, daily calorie expenditures, and
the foods you have been eating/or not....

Change up your routine a bit, and then go on with your
life. Take this from someone who deals with depression
and so forth on a daily basis nearly....don't let this
get you down, because it WILL pass...and then you will
move on and get closer to your goal.

You are worth it......

    Why wait for the book when you can watch the "video" ? (aka SparkPeople.com!!) I understand. but you are right you need to use the tools you have been given here on site. The book wont make it "easier" for you. the information is the same; the format is different cuz its printed and bound not electric. You CAN do this Jesse. Have Faith in yourself. Hugs Laurie

    I am looking forward to the book too. Reading other people's blogs recently got me remotivated. I was going to not track my food until after January 1 and gobble my way through the holidays, but I realized how much better I would feel if I didn't. Someone else wrote that eating right and exercising was the best gift she could give herself. That struck a chord with me and decided to give myself a similar gift.
