Having a rough start

Thursday, June 19, 2008

Well, so far week 1 of starting over isn't going so great. I'm having a tough time getting back into the swing of portion control and saying no to foods that I shouldn't be eating. Not to mention drinking water....
I'm not giving up though. At least I recognize what I need to do and although it may be a slow process, I think I'll get back to where I need to be.

It's been a while...

Monday, June 16, 2008

Well, it has been almost 3 months since I've really been around. Yikes. I got to a point where I realized I was spending too much of my free time on SP...and felt like I was taking away from my family. I thought I was at a point where I didn't need as much support and could kind of do this on my own. I was doing pretty well until we went on a cruise and I gained 5 pounds. I've been back for almost a month now and have yet to get back into the swing of things. After that week of eating however I wanted, I just can't seem to get the motivation to get my eating back under control. I realized that maybe I need SP and all the wonderful people here more than I realized. So, I'm back! This time around though, I plan on finding a more healthy balance between spark and my family and other responsibilities. Anyway just wanted to say HI and you'll probably be seeing a little more of me!

    Well, I'm happy to see you back!

Just remember that it takes time. You probably aren't going to be able to jump back to where you were 3 months ago. Take the steps the way you did last time. It probably won't take as long as it did, but you have to give yourself time to adjust!

Congrats on your refocus! let me know if there is anything I can do to help you out!

OMG *New* Clothes!!!

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

I decided that I needed to try to find some new pants to wear. I really only have 3 pairs of pants and they are all too big now. I was trying to wait as long as possible before getting a new wardrome in a smaller size b/c if I keep losing then I'm going to have to keep buying new clothes and I don't have the money for that! So, even though it's not really in the budget, I decided to stop at Old Navy and get just one pair of jeans, they usually have cheap clothes and pretty cute. Well, I left disappointed b/c I literally couldn't find one single thing that I was even remotely interested in trying on. Their stuff just wasn't cute today!

Well, on the way home I remembered a bin of old clothes that I have stashed away. I've dug it out a few times here and there and nothing ever fits me (too small). I thought to myself, let me just try again. Guess what? I found 10, yes 10, pairs of pants and capris that I can now fit into!!! They even all still have the tags on them! I think one year I must have gone on a shopping spree thinking that I would lose weight and then never did. Until now!! How exciting! I don't have to dread getting dressed in the morning and wearing the same few outfits over and over because nothing fits me right! Unfortunately it's almost summer now so I won't get much wear out of them and if I continue to lose weight they might be too big on me in the fall :) I've had worse problems I guess!

    woohooo.. that is great. I love finding new things that you've had for a long time that you just couldn't wear. WTG on the weight loss girl. Keep up the great work.

    First, I am so amazingly proud of you! What an awesome experience! The only thing that would have been better was finding a $20 bill in one of the pockets. :) Look at you get skinny!

Second, not that you need them now, but I find that Maurice's jeans are cheaper than Old Navy's and they fit better (in that I'm not constantly pulling them up!) I used to adore Old Navy & it used to be that my closet was full of their stuff. But it's getting a little *too* teeney bopper for me.

Have you done your measurements lately? How many inches have you lost???

    Congratulations!! That is such an awesome feeling! Even better when you don't have to spend any money to get a "new" wardrobe! I have been fitting into some clothes that have been hanging in the back of my closet recently too...I like having a choice of what to wear...instead of making sure I don;'t wear the same thing again in one week!!! LOL

I hope you had a great Easter too by the way!
Keep in touch!

I fell off the wagon for a few days...

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

...but now I'm back :) I didn't have a very good weekend as far as eating choices and I'm just getting around to posting about it because I was so mad at myself! It's so much easier to tell other people to forgive themselves and move on when you hit those bumps in the road...easier said than done I guess.

The weekend started off okay. Friday I ate well and even went to the gym. Saturday, however, was so bad that for the first time I didn't even bother using the food tracker! I took my daughter to her first movie (she'll be 3 in a few weeks, it was really fun!). We had to have popcorn and I had planned on that ahead of time, so I wasn't too mad at myself for that. But, I did eat a lot of it and I know how bad movie popcorn is! It didn't stop there, that night we ordered a pizza and I ate...well a lot of it! At the time I just felt like I needed a diet "break" and so I just went for it.

So, on Suday you would think that I'd get back on track, right? Nope, we had left over pizza, so someone had to eat it and it might as well be me since I had already screwed up the diet for the weekend. Oh, and water? Hardly drank any the entire weekend.

Monday I couldn't even bring myself to get on the scale for my weigh in. I got on today though and I lost a pound?! Maybe it just hasn't caught up to me yet?

Well anyway, I'm back on track now! I did Turbo Sculpt last night and plan on doing a TJ every day this week! I'm within my calories today and have been drinking my water.

So, I'm going to take my own advice and forgive myself and move on!!!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

    It's nice to see that even though you beat yourself up, you are quick to forgive yourself too! We all have days like that...and it's easy to give up entirely because of a couple of bad days. So I think you really need to congratulate yourself on getting back on track so quickly - good job on the loss! Now that you are back on track, you may not give your body the chance to catch up with your weekend!:) Congrats!
