Took the weekend off

Sunday, February 24, 2008

Wasn't worth it. I let myself eat "whatever" yesterday, and afterwards I felt icky. Bloated, weighted down, sluggish. I have been a bit better today, but still not "good". Back to it tomorrow, eh?

    Isn't it strange how when you get used to eating foods that are healthy, that when you eat not so healthy stuff you feel awful? My husband and I went to a BBQ resturant one day. I thought I had made some really good choices. By the end of the meal, my stomach hurt so bad I thought I was going to be sick. I swore I would never eat there again. Those free days help us to redo our priorities. I hope you feel better!

    I know that feeling. I get cravings and then about once every few months I will have had just enough. So, I will give myself permission to eat what i want. Then the stuff the I was craving doesn't taste as good as it used to that is for sure. I usually feel gross the next day too.

One meal at a time

Thursday, February 21, 2008

Yesterday was a pretty good day. Even though I messed up with what I chose for dinner, I stayed *in the range* for most everything! Went overboard on sodium though. Oops.

I am trying very much not to think ahead too far when it comes to food. What is the phrase I heard once....Eat to live, not live to eat. That's what I'm trying to do. Food has been too big a thing for too long. I was treating every day as a "special occasion" type thing, and eating without thought. Probably not even really enjoying what I was eating, for the most part. i can't do that any more.

    I can relate to the food being too big of a thing. I heard a co worker once use a phrase that really describes the way I used to eat; she called it "eating with reckless abandonment"-yep, that's me in the not too distant past.

Glad to read of your progress, that you're staying within range and keeping the focus on other things than food. May today bring you unexpected blessings.

Feeling defeated at this moment

Sunday, February 10, 2008

I was looking back at some old posts, and at my comparison picture below. How far could I have been if I had not screwed up?

What is it in me that I allowed myself to mess up? Why did I pick food over being more healthy and looking better? How can I stop it from happening again?

I feel really sad right now. Not the "give up and stop fighting" feeling, but just dejected that I let myself down. I'm tired of doing that.

    The only way to be defeated is to stop fighting. You are still a compeditor. So hang in there. Find an active team that will push you and encourage you.

Remember that losing weight and getting healthy takes time and effort but you are worth it. You are worth the time to take a 30 minute walk three times a week. You are worth a few minutes a day to post all your food in the nutrition tracker. Be strong, be brave. Get your ticker moving to the right again.

Wishing you a skinny 2008,

    You are not alone on this one, Im sure that we all have reverted to our old ways at one time or another, I know I have. The important thing is that you recognize your mistake and are doing something about it right now. Dont focus on what could of been, focus on the road ahead and how good your going to look. Let that serve as your motivation for getting it done. Dont be sad...its a new year...a new beginning, there is no better time than the present my friend.

Starting over -- AGAIN

Sunday, February 10, 2008

Well, I dropped the ball.

I gained it back.

I'm starting over.

Don't know what to say about that, other than....I'm starting over.

Been a long time....

Tuesday, August 14, 2007

Yep, I slacked.

Yep, I gained some back.

Nope, I am not giving up.

It's that "special time of the month", any moment now. Normally I would use that as a license to eat whatever and say I will get back on track in a few days.

Not this time.

I am taking "drastic measures" and following a program I found in Woman's World (their newest "diet of the week" LOL). I figure for 4 days or so, it will shake things up and get me into a controlled mode again. And, you know, knock a few pounds back off in the process ;-)

Day One today. So far so good. I have wanted to munch....I have wanted to say (already, which is sad!) "Screw it!! I will do this when I am done with my period!" But I haven't. I'm going to try hard not to.

This is truly going to be a second-by-second kind of day when it comes to control.
