Arg....life causes a detour...again


Wednesday, August 08, 2012

So, I was doing great.....and then my b-day hit. I figured "hey, it's my birthday, I deserve it!" Bad me! So, I gained weight almost instantly (water from sodium, but still) and I got into the mentality that I am fine the way I am, why should I change, society should, blah-de-blah. Then came the cookies. I LOVE baking, just for the fun! I am proud of myself for resisting to the best of my abilities. I ate only half of what I would have before, if that! But, alas, my butt and thighs don't care if I show a little restraint, lol! Sooo, I got back up to 290, and I felt sooooo horrible. I started doing better, just eating less, but not tracking. Got down to 281, but, then came the poptarts! THEY SUCK!! 410 cals for 1 package? WTH?! Up to 289 I go! Anyways, started watching my cal intake yesterday and already lost 4lbs. Prolly just water, but it counts! I have also been put on Metformin for my PCOS. Hopefully it will help my metabolism. I just loooove having PCOS AND hypothyroidism.....it's a joy! Can you feel my sarcasm? Anyways, I hope I am getting back on the right track, because I need this for my health; physical, mental and emotional. I do not DESERVE food, I need it to SURVIVE. "Eat to live, not live to eat", to quote Dinotopia, lol! OH! I even colored my hair my fave color as motivation! PURPLE!! It is fun, but my shower looks like I massacred pink, blue and purple care bears!! emoticon

    You did what so many of us do, so don't beat yourself up too much. There is no magic formula to this losing weight thing-just lots of trial and error...or in my case, lots and lots and lots of error, along with some trials! You're learning-about portion control, reading nutrition labels, tracking your food, and learning how to deal with food in a realistic way. We need it to live, but if we're eating too much of those empty calorie, less nutrition dense things (like, um, poptarts?), we're not gonna live as long, or at least as vibrantly as we could.

You will be fine, as long as you keep learning from your journey and are willing to keep modifying what you're doing, until you find things that work for you. Good luck!
