Sooo I'm new to this and this is the first blog I write. emoticon Let me start by saying I binge eat emoticon well i used to cause it has been a whole week and I have not binged. I'm used to waking up in the middle of the night and stuffing whatever cake or cookies i find in the kitchen and milk.. Now I'm beggining to be more conscious of what I do and eat. Everytime I get a craving I think I'm my head what I weigh and I turn right back around and away from the kitchen. emoticon I dont drink soda and I'm not a juice drinker I only drink water but I never drank the whole 64oz / 8 cups of 8 oz that I'm supposed to drink, which i know is really bad. But as of this week I have been pushing myself to drink it and I have ( which forces me to be in the bathroom every min.. lol ) I have been trying my best to stay with in my calorie intake as well. Sometimes i go over sometimes i go under but I've been doing ok.. I've been killing my cravings with Jello or diet fudgesicles or 100% calorie bag of white cheddar popcorn. God knows I'm trying my best. . The only thing i am off on is the exercising. emoticon I live in NY where I have to walk 4-5 blocks and walk 2 flights of long stairs to get to work then walk another 3 blocks to work from the train when i get off. Not much but that has been my exercise for this week... I've been having pains in my knees and ankles which i blame the weight for that have not made me want to get on my elliptical.. But when i ask myself can this be possible ?? it is because i was tempted to get on the scale this morning and noticed i lost 7lbs.. emoticon emoticon Can this be possible in just one week on just changing the way i ate, drinking way more water then I'm used to and walking the lil bit i have been walking ??? Is it possible ?? Can my scale just be wrong ?? Which I dont think it is because my son weighs on my home scale exactly what he weighs at the Dr. give or take a pound. Things that make you go hmmmmmmm... If it is true cant wait to continue doing this and loosing more and I will make the best sacrifice ever to exercise more... emoticon

    Nicely done! It is definitely possible. I've heard that it's possible for you to lose weight simply by changing your diet, but it's not possible to lose weight by just working out and not changing your diet. And while you're not going to the gym, that walk sounds like exercise to me!

    I've found that it's very important to find something you ENJOY for you to be successful in working out consistently. I tried so many different things, but it wasn't until my boyfriend bought me the Wii Fit Plus that I found something I loved. Just keep trying different activities until you find what's right for you! It could even be that you find something that both you and your son will enjoy (basketball, baseball, etc.)!

    Best of luck- I know you can do it!

    It is definitely possible! Way to go! 7 lbs is amazing! Little changes really do add up. If your knees and ankles are bothering you, have you thought it might be your shoes? If your shoes don't cushion your feet where you personally need it, it will cause your joints to hurt more. If you don't feel like doing the elliptical, maybe try just walking around the neighborhood. Keep up the great work!

    Gratz on the weight loss & ignoring that voice calling you from the fridge or cupboards ~ those are some super accomplishments!

    As for the water, you could just work your way up to the 8 glasses; I started 5 weeks ago (well, will be as of this Tues) and I only drank maybe 3 glasses. Now I'm up to 6. You can do it, just don't pressure yourself about it.

    I understand about your knees hurting; have you thought about an Aqua aerobics class? I just started one 2 weeks ago & have been 5x and it takes most of the pressure off my joints.

    Good luck in your journey.

    YES! It is possible! You will be surprised at how much weight you can lose just from dropping soda! But, it is a good idea to fit in exercise even if you can't get on the eliptical. If your knee's and ankles bother you do yoga or a brisk walk around the block. Anything that keeps you active for 20 straight minutes. Good job on the contorl of midnight binge's. When ever you feel like drowning in a see of cookies or a late night snack, walk backwards a few steps. Thats what you will do to your journey that is moving you forward. Think about how far you have come on your journey. Don't turn back! Sometimes I do physical things to make it click in my head like my vision collage or walk a few paces backwards. It keeps me on my path.

    It's all about the little things that add up to big change. Don't try to change too many things at once, though, because then it's just overwhelming. Good luck!

    Especially if you make a conscious effort to amp up your water intake it is possible.
    Your body learns that it doesn't have to store the water and lets go of its stored water.
    About the exercise: Every bit counts. Even if it is 10 minutes a day that is all it takes!

    You can do everything you want to do!

    If you get a craving at night, drink some water and see if you cant just get back to sleep. Hugs
