In the past, I've combated TOM with salty, salty foods. Taco Bell. Potato chips. Fries.

Right now? I am craving Doritos. And/or nachos.

I am still following Ph1 for a few more days so I am not going to go make nachos with rice chips but DAMN this craving is very, very bad right now. I don't even have lettuce to make a taco salad.

But you sure as heck know what I am going to be making for lunch tomorrow!

Scared of the scale

Friday, September 21, 2012

Of course, as soon as I posted by last vblog, I fell off plan and probably gained all 5 pounds lost, back. Why do I do this? It is not ok. So I am back on the Beach and doing ok here today. I am ready to be back full time and I think I ate because I am frustrated. I can't really walk yet (though I've been going for a 1/2 mile walk all week except Tuesday when it poured this week) and can't really stand to cook yet but I am making the change.

I did so well for 4 weeks - I can't go back to emotional eating because I am depressed.

I was told on Monday that I was no longer going to be a full time employee at my job. So that means not only will I lose money, but I will lose benefits as well. I am freaking out about it. Especially since I am currently on Short Term Disability because of the foot.

Even talking (well, typing) about it makes me nauseous.

So, a lot going on. I have even thought about cigarettes for the first time in a long time (I quit 9.5 years ago). I know it is stress. But without working out, I don't know how else to properly divert this tension...

  try crocheting or knitting. meditating can help relieve your tension . try to focus on pleasant thoughts while meditating / don't resort to cigarettes it will have side effects down the road. Take care of yourself.

What happens when you don't see a difference?

Saturday, August 04, 2012

What happens when you don't see a difference in your weight anymore? I mean, obviously I am young and trimmer 6 years ago. Wow, has it been six whole years already?!!?

I was a newlywed, literally two days after getting married and we went for a drive on the Kangamangus Highway, stopped at a scenic overlook type pull-off, and my wife snapped a picture.

Two years later, I happily put on the newly-wed pounds. Packed on 50 of them between 2007-2009. I stayed around the same weight - losing the same 20 pounds only to gain it back. For my sister's wedding in 2009, I lost 30, but went right back up to 259-260 in no time.

In the last year, I've lost 40 pounds. I put ten back on between May and June, but I've already lost a few of those, recognizing that I can't yo-yo anymore. I don't want to, in fact. The only thing to work on is my lack of exercise, which is no easy feat. Changing habits is hard, especially if they are bad habits! But I keep plugging along.

The only thing is, I can't see a difference between 259 and 231! I know I SHOULD, but I don't. Nor do I feel all that different. Nothing other than feeling fat. I obviously know the numbers are different, but what's a girl to do when she doesn't FEEL different?

    Remind yourself that those pounds are about more than just feling different. On a *molecular* level, you're different. All the way down to your bones, things are different. Your heart labors a alittle less, your lungs breathe a little easier... and remember, you're too close to it. Know how a watched pot never boils? There's a big difference, but you're close enough that it's harder to see it!

    First, you should be happy with what you have already accomplished. I know what it feels like to gain and lose the same pounds but you have lost 40 and on your way to a healthier lifestyle. Keep up the good work.
