Avoiding the scale.

Thursday, March 13, 2014

I have been avoiding the scale all week. I overdid it this weekend, and knew that the scale would show it. I'm not sure why I do this. I guess I just don't want the disappointment.

So, I stepped on the scale this morning, and I am down .7 lb. I can only imagine that it would have been much more had I not been so bad this past weekend. At least is is still going down and not up. That is a positive to the whole thing.

I will definitely try to do better this coming weekend, so I won't find myself avoiding the scale.

    We've all hit bumps in the road on our healthy lifestyle journeys (heck, I've wandered off the road ENTIRELY before!). The IMPORTANT thing is that we pick ourselves back up and continue to head in the right direction. It sounds like that is EXACTLY what you're doing. Know there are lots of us right alongside you, cheering you on!

Has it been that long???

Monday, March 03, 2014

My, my, my has it really been that long? Yes, I guess it has. I spent the last year in a downward spiral. I separated from my husband of 16 years and took it upon myself to eat my way though any thing and everything. I gained 30 pounds last year on top of my already overweight self. So, by January of 2014, I was at my heaviest in my life, needing to lose 80 lbs to get to my goal weight.

I started using MYFITNESSPAL, but found that I really like sparkpeople more and now that I can sync my scale and fitbit automatically (when I use them as I should), I have come back.

I hope to come back to welcoming arms, I mean, what really maters is that I am back at it right?

I have lost 11 lbs since I started the journey again in Jan. I have had good days and bad. I am determined not to let the bad days determine how I will spend the next 6 months eating. If I have a bad day, or bad week for that matter, I am just going to pick myself up, try not to beat myself up over it and get back to business!

So, my ultimate goal is to be at a healthy weight by my 40th birthday in July of 2015. I really think I can do this.

Wish me luck and I hope everyone success in their endeavors!

I had a 1.2 lb loss today. That puts me at 189 lbs. That is 10lbs from where I was at the end of the last round. I am angry at myself for letting go again. It is a vicious cycle I go through. I do well, I lose weight I stop doing what I was doing eat everything I can get my hands on and gain it back. When will I learn?

On another note, I went to Zumba last night. It was great. I had plenty of energy.

I'm down 4.4 lbs today. That is what I gained during the load, so I should be getting to real loss here soon. I feel good, not tired. Last time I had headaches for a few days, but I am trying to get my water so hopefully that will not happen this time. I was not hungry at all yesterday until around 4:30. I ate some chicken, pickles and seaweed salad. For dinner I had tilapia and asparagus with mashed cauliflower. I did put sour cream in the cauliflower.

Last time on protocol, I found that if I followed the diet exactly I did not lose very well. If I fluctuate what and how much I eat I lose better.

Hello, I have decided that I need to do another round to get back on track. I loaded on Saturday and Sunday, and today I started the VLCD. So far so good. Not too hungry. I will try to keep my blog updated with my progress.
