Yes, Still alive and Kicking
Friday, February 11, 2011
I haven't wrote a blog for awhile now. I just had nothing particularly interesting to say. Have I lost any weight? Yes and No. I lose then I gain, so I just don't post until I have something exciting to show.
My weight is a roller coaster. I lost 4lbs last week, but then I have gained back 2. I really have to get back on track, but find it hard since the little voice in my head says I am hungry, EAT, so stupid me, I listen.
I check in every day, spin the wheel, use my nutrition tracker, read other member's blogs, comment and try to be uplifting and encouraging. That is what SP is all about, encouraging others when they need it. I have some great friends here, and they do encourage me, a lot, and I do listen to each and every one of you. I have all the symptoms I had when I first joined SP, but I have realized the reason I was successful, was because I was on a pill CHAMPIX. A pill I took to quit smoking and which blocks cravings. So the cravings for cigarettes and food were not there and things just went along smoothly. I told myself, this is easy, the lbs were just melting off me, but boy was I wrong, now that I have no pills to rely on. The cravings are back tenfold and not easy to ignore.
Some days are okay, I get by with keeping within my calorie range, exercise and do everything I am supposed to do, then the next day, it feels like I haven't eaten in days and days and I am sooooo hungry. What's up with that. I honestly don't remember that happening before. Which puts me right back to square 1.
Well that is all I have to say. I may not be doing as great as everyone else, but just remember I will always be there for each and everyone you with encouragement and a helping hand.
Take care everyone. Yes I am still alive, just not kicking it up as much as I should, lol. Not going to quit, just going to try and do better.
