Day 2

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Last night went pretty well. I ended up not feeling very good and went to bed early. I'm still hungry a lot because I'm adjusting to not over indulging. I did spend some time today looking up some new recipes to try. I've got a busy weekend so hopefully I'll find some time to get to the gym this weekend. Either way Ill make sure to get some walking in! Excited to be re-focused!

Day 1

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

I've started over again. I've decided no matter how many times I start over, it's worth it to me. I just need to not get in the mindset that I'm missing out by not indulging in all the food. You know what I'm missing out on?
-Shopping at a normal store
-Not feeling like everyone is staring at me
-Not being out of breath by climbing a few flights of stairs
-Not going on roller coasters or going to amusement parks because I can't ride the rides
-Not being in the best health I could possibly be in
-Getting to wear clothes that show off my midriff
-Going to the beach wearing a bikini

It seems that I realize there is more to miss out on by staying this weight.


Slow and Steady

Well I've tried to be re-focused but there is so much yummy food to be had in the world. Today we had pizza buffet, and I've been craving dipped ice cream cones. What does everyone else to do stop with all the bad food cravings? I don't have any problem making food at work and following a guide but then sometimes I just go off track for no real reason. i think some of it is that i'm bored at work at night with not a lot to do so I eat as well. Any suggestions,tips, guides would be awesome!

    Cut 1 slice of pizza in half so you have "2" slices. It works for me,,, You don't feel deprived and you don't overly stuff yourself either..

Drink a BIG glass of water. A lot of times your body just needs some water while your brain tells you it wants food. Drinking a big glass of water BEFORE snacking will help you not to eat so much.

    PJB145 gave you some great ideas. Prepare as much as you can. When you cannot, eat a small amount and walk away.

Enjoying something you like is fine as long as you enjoy it in moderation and calculate into your daily calories.

Avoid depriving yourself as much as possible. Just keep reminding yourself - moderation. Take a few bites instead of a whole bowl. Have one small slice of pizza instead of half a pie. Over time you will teach your body to enjoy the bites more than the whole plate.

Always remember that this is a process. emoticon

    Since you have identified one of the reasons you eat (boredom) prepare for it. I always pack a nutritious snack (something I love to eat) so that when temptation comes calling I don't have to answer.

Unless these are trigger foods, there is no reason you cannot enjoy a slice of pizza. If you know ahead of time about the special meal buffets prepare a nutritious salad to pair with the slice that way you can have your treat and stay within plan as well.

Also water, water, water. I find drinking 8 to 16 oz. of water before eating gives me the sensation of fullness so that I can eat less of the "special treats" and enjoy myself just as much.

I am definitely no expert at this but these tricks have helped me to shed 22 pounds.

Good luck. emoticon emoticon

It's been awhile

Monday, June 09, 2014

So it's been almost six months since I last posted a blog entry on here. I'm not sure what happened but I just gave up. Because of that, I'm back to the weight I was 2 years ago whe nI started all of this. I gained six pounds, this week alone. I've got a trip coming up this summer that I was really looking forward to and now I'm dreading it because of my weight. Two of the things I realized was that I stopped posting my blogs and I stopped counting all of my calories. So I'm back to doing both of those things today. It's not a race, but a lifestyle change. Let's see where i can go this time!

So my day has only started and I'm already 800 calories over for the day! I really wanted an ice cream and so I stopped before work. I've been craving chocolate and sweets so bad the last few days. So I have all night at work to really think about what I want. I plan to think about why I keep sabotaging myself. I mean i did really good from April to August and I wasn't fighting cravings or anything. I've found a meal that's pretty decently low calorie for work. I just like to make excuses. For example, my husband is on a slight different schedule than I am so instead of just making me some food, i order pizza. Why does it really matter if we miss out on a meal for each other? He can make himself something as well.

What's worse is I thought i had him on board with the weight loss but he's starting to eat just as crappy as I am again. i have all these things I want to change about myself but I also want the weight to keep coming off. I'm not happy with maybe losing .6 pounds every week until I'm at my goal weight. It looks like it's time to go into full on research mode tonight.

So frustrated but i"M going to not let it stop me. There's always tomorrow and i can try to focus tonight on not going too much more over my calories. emoticon

    hey! come back to the group here!

I was reading your post and it seems like you were probably fatigue eating! At the end of your work shift, you're so hungry you can't stop yourself from indulging in your cravings... it's actually been proven that being tired causes us to eat more unhealthy.

Keep that in mind when you next feel the urge to eat those sweets. It's not really you that wants it, it's your brain being silly because it's tired and your body is too wiped out to argue!
