Week One Lessons

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

I started last Tuesday with my new eating philosophy of viewing food as fuel and nutrition. If I eat this way 80% of the time, then those occasions where I go out to eat or attend some function I can eat for 'enjoyment' and not sabotage my goals. This was a good first week. I stayed true to plan and I attended a wedding Saturday. I enjoyed myself at the wedding and even had some cake. But the entire week other than the wedding day, I stuck to the plan and ended up losing 7 pounds. I don't expect that kind of weight loss every week, but if I stick to the plan I should lose 1/2 to 1 pound a week. We'll see.

Starting from Scratch

Tuesday, June 10, 2014

I have deleted all of my previous blog entries because I am back to square one. I have gained all but 34 of the pounds I had lost. I've done a lot of soul searching and research to find out what I can't seem to stay focused on living a healthy lifestyle. I've come to the conclusion that I have to view food differently. We'll see how successful I am in the coming months. I will post regularly since I believe that will help to keep me accountable.

    I am having the same struggle. I gained back some of the weight I lost and now I cannot seem to get focused on healthy eating. It is so easy to slip back into the old habits especially since I never completely let them go. I, too, need to think of food differently, not as something to just shove into my mouth but to view food as fuel to my body and it needs quality not quantity.

    Good luck! You can do it. I know it is so frustrating when the weight comes back. I have been there. Best wishes! heather
