STILL very happy with my progress

Sunday, December 04, 2011

I had a couple of great "eating right" days last week followed by some not so great days, lol. But I've kept walking and working out so it was so nice to get on the scales this morning to see that I've lost 3 lbs! Just what I needed to get me motivated for this next week.

I'm trying a little bit of a new program from a book I baught a couple of years ago. It's really about eating nutritionally and often and making sure I get the protien I need when I work out so I am not losing what little muscle I have.

So Here I go, I'm off for another week of improving my eating and hopfully sheding another 3 excess Lbs!!!

    Be proud of the things you do right.
Don't be derailed by mistakes. Just decide you will do better the next day.

happy with my progress

Monday, November 28, 2011

I didn't follow my food intake exactly but there were many times during the day that I was tempted to each unhealthy and did not. I did cave twice but the first was almost nothing. The second time I could not sleep and it was 3 AM fueled with thoughts of being out of work for Christmas and then homeless come the new year.

Its an odd mixed set of feallings. Being so unsure of my and my childrens future, but then also being so glad that I'm doing this. It will make the following 6 months much easier to not keep turning to food for comfort - finding none, only feeling fatter and more upset.

I'm enjoying the hot tea and this morning even had my daughter eating oranges for breakfast.

attempting to breath in peace and breath out love....


First day

Saturday, November 26, 2011

I'ts not easy. I'm not even 1/2 way through my first day of modified eating. I did manage to walk this morning, though my cold is still lingering. Also cheated slightly and ate 4 reaces pieces left over from my daughters thanksgiving.

This evening will be the real challenge. I've gotten so bad at eating before bed. My strategy is to eat 2 cups of air cooked pop corn. I just keep remember that this 50 lbs will NOT come off unless I change my eating habits and drastically reduce my calorie and fat intake : ( I dont want to grow old like this : (

    It's the big picture that counts, we'll all make slips here and there but what's important is that we see results over time. It sounds like you're doing great! :)

    Don't feel guilty! It's hard to break a habit, especially something as addicting as food. Just break it down to little goals ... don't expect everything to change all at once. Going for a walk is a great start. One day at a time, one pound at a time, you can do it!
