still backslid today, but not as bad. thank you for your support!

Monday, June 06, 2011

Thank you all for your support. I didn't do awesome today as I thought I would, especially considering the horrible day I had yesterday. But, like I said, convenient memory. I still need to get my scale and weigh myself tomorrow morning for my new official starting point.

In regards to comments about removing tempting food from the house, that's very difficult when I live with 7 people, 4 of which are 13 and under, one is my boyfriend, and two are my parents who homemade delicious food all the time. I don't really do shopping, I don't have the means. I can go shopping with my mom and put healthy stuff in her cart, but that won't change the temptation factor in the house.

In regards to wigs, yup, I got a wig, so it's nice to know I have the option.

One strategy for success that I'm implementing tomorrow include 1) counting weight watchers points, 2) walking and not sleeping in, 3) drinking all my water, 4) my dentist prescribed this mouthwash for me that really takes away my sense of taste and leaves my mouth feeling odd, so that will help me from overeating.

My boyfriend also has about 50 pounds he wants to lose, so at least I have support from him. His 50 pounds is sure a lot different from my 130, and his male metabolism will be working for him, but it isn't a competition. He reminds me that when we both get healthy, that means the longer lives we'll have to spend together, and also more energy for going out and fun.

    good luck talia :3 so good that you have your boyfriend for support~ i know what you mean about household temptations. D: my family just eats what they want, usually... and i'm the only one really trying hard to eat healthy. it makes me sad, because my parents have diabetes, too. :( i try to help them & give them tips & will try to cook healthy things for them, but they don't usually listen or want what i cook...

    It's really hard to afford healthy food. Is there a way you can get some cheap little things (carrots, lettuce, apples) and have a shelf or a side of the fridge that's "yours"? Maybe then when you open the fridge you can focus on "your side" instead of all the unhealthy stuff? Just a thought.

    What does your wig look like? I'm curious

    Maybe you could try measuring your food, and just eating what everyone else does when necessary. Sometimes we tend to eat a lot more than just one serving without realizing it. If you can't change the food for now, try changing the amount. Just a suggestion:)

    Aww, he sounds soooo sweet! I'm glad you're feeling more positive today. Even if you have tempting food in your house, if you also have easily-accessible healthy foods (baby carrots, apples, hummus, yogurt, string cheese) available, then it will be easier to overcome temptation.
