Frustrated, stressed out...

Sunday, March 18, 2012

Today I am fustrated.. stressed..as I look at my past blog its the same thing wining.. I am stuck on the 10 pound lost 10 pounds gain... I feel lazy not being able to step up to my goals which is all together lose 30 pounds but really lose something each month..I am always looking for excuses .. to not exercise that I have it in somewhat under control been walking 20 to 30 even 60 mins a day the group that I am in has giving me that challenge.. but I do not see the scale go down...I am starting as of today to plan my meals for the whole week, got some fresh veggies and fruits at the market..gonna stay away from beef and go for the lean protien...now my problem is the water can not seem to drink the required cups.. not a fan of water I drink it but do not like the taste...at night I have a sweet craving that I can not seem to shake that off.. so I quess what I trying to do is to get some positive thinking on trying again clean as of today..
thanks for hearing me out!!!!

    You are not alone in the water and sweet craves dept. try some sassy water cucumbers,mint,lemons gives the water a nice flavor with no added calories. As far as my sweet craving I save enough points every night (following weight watchers) to enjoy a 3-4 point treat emoticon

    Try flavoring the water.. I buy way too much but I love it!

At night, perservere and stay strong!! We all have those cravings to get past.. I try eating something like popcorn (sprinkled with cinamon/splenda mix) and the motion of eating lots of popcorn that is sweet usually helps too!

Let us know if we can help!!

    We are to vent to!

Have you tried lemon in your water? Or unsweet tea?

I love some frozen yogurt at night....nearly every night. 1/3 of a scoop in a cone is 115 calories and satisfies my craving. Also Fage brand Greek yogurt has some really yummy fruit & yogurt combos. That brand is super thick and decadent and Greek yogurt is high in protein (it is the only one I like because of its thickness). The Blueberry Acai 0% one is delish and might satisfy your sweet tooth (I also like the Pomegranate one). Angel Food cake is also another great alternative to satisfy a sweet tooth, I even just read it in an article on Sparkpeople.

Joining a challenge, or challenging yourself is a great way to stay motivated. I am using the 40 days of Lent as my challenge and jumpstart to get back on track. Everyday, no exceptions or excuses, I will exercise at least 15 minutes and eat healthy.

The scale can be so frustrating! Focus on the great things you are doing to get healthy...sometimes, it is all about the baby steps!

    Sounds like you just being aware of your goals..that you are doing well. I think just being and ataying aware of our weight goals is the first step to losing weight. I too keep losing 10 and regaining the same back. I think your are RIGHT, PLAN your meals for the week-a very good, smart thing to do, to stay on track. I will do the same! Eating whatever I feel really doesnt work out..lol. -Planned meals are rhe way to go. I too have an evening sweet tooth..I think maybe it might be a good idea to have one low calorie dessert, planned of course. I personally like those lower calorie puddings in a cup. Anyway, keep thinking positive. You are doing great! emoticon
