I just will never understand me, one minute I am giving my brother some of the 'less healthy' food in my house so he can take it away from here... and the next I am debating whether or not to give into my craving for chili cheese fries.
It just amazes me that my motivation can change from minute to minute.
So I was wondering, what is everyones thoughts on motivation and cravings? When your motivation is missing what do you do to power through it? For cravings, do you give into your craving and just go with the flow? Or do you try your best to ignore it?
Lately I have different people telling me different things about how I should be losing weight... and I know I need to decide what will work for me. But I guess the problem is I'm not sure what that is right now.

So eating lean cuisines and other things are really getting old. I want to start cooking/preparing my meals for the week... I also live alone.. I don't mind making a big batch of something and portioning it out for a week. I thought I would see if anyone had any favorite recipes from sparkpeople.com or just in general :)
I really think cooking and trying different things will make it more fun and will help me stay on track :) At least, I can hope ;)

I know it is mainly an emotional thing right now, and stress related as well. But what I don't understand is it is the exact opposite.. normally I would be wanting to eat everything I could get my hands on, but instead I just don't want to eat. It's been 5 days now. Don't get me wrong, I am eating, the first 2 days it was just once a day, I have been forcing myself to eat twice a day.. and today I am trying to get back to normal.
I am sure my body is in starvation mode... at first it let me get down to 250.4, but my body is stayed at that weight to the *ounce* this entire week. I know my body is freaking out and I am trying to get back to normal. I have just never had it like this, I have had emotional eating issues, but I've never had them where the result is me not wanting to eat. I'm doing my best to force myself to eat, and start exercising again, and hopefully some more weight will come off.

Last week, I started off SO WELL. I was exercising, eating right, I was on a roll. Towards the end of the week, I just stopped, for no reason. I started eating fast food again, and 1 "cheat day" turned into 4. Now I am back at work ready to start a new week. It came down to 1 of two options... 1. Order delicious food with the rest of my coworkers, and continue down this path that will only cause me harm. or 2. Push forward, and eat the healthy stuff I have brought with me.
I'm glad to say I chose #2. I did not order food, I am happily eating my soup, and popcorn while they pig out on all the grease. I will be walking on my breaks, and getting back into the swing of things.
I have accepted last week, and I am ready to move on... but I can't help but think that had I followed through, I would have probably broken the 20 pound barrier I haven't been able to break, instead of gaining .4 pounds. But this week, I am in it for the long haul, and I will not let this sabboteurs get to me this week!

It seems that I can do fine, but work always ends up getting to me. I work 12 hour graveyard shifts... I have no problem bringing my food and enough snacks to last throughout the night. I would say it's 50/50 at my work.. 1/2 of my coworkers are overweight, the other half or not. Regardless, they do a "chow run" everyday. I can usually resist maybe 2 out of 3 days, but I always end up giving in. What I am thinking of doing now is leaving my wallet in the car. Where I work it's locked and very secure, so no one will steal my car or wallet... What happens is one or two people go on the "chow run" and go around the room and collect the money and take orders... so by leaving my wallet in the car, I will not be able to place an order. This last week was horrible, I only gave in one day, but then during my days off the past 2-3 days I've been continuing to eat fast food. When I have it once, it just sticks with me and makes me want the next day and the next day. I was doing so good for about 5 days, and then all of a sudden I realize I'm doing what got me fat in the first place.
I just feel like if I don't get a handle on this soon, without even knowing it I will throw in the towel, and I refuse to let this happen.
Anyone else have trouble eating healthy at work, or is it just me? LOL
