BLC#15 WUB Week 6/Triggers

Monday, August 13, 2012

Another week has come and gone.. They've been going by quickly for me since I've been so busy traveling. I'm back in California now, after being in Phoenix since Wednesday. This week was a little tougher as far as tracking goes, since I wasn't making the food (which was always easier to see what's going in), but I know I stayed within range and was good with temptation.

Still sticking it out and hanging in there!! I finally ended my frustrating stall, and dropped 4lbs this week (SO happy about that!).

Speaking of temptation.. triggers is a good thing to recognize in ourselves. Before my surgery, my triggers could be anything from bread to sweets. I loved bread, and if I was in the mood, could down some sweets. Lately, though, I don't really have any triggers. There are times when I smell something and wish I could have it (like today, for example, Subway... simple, I know), but I've been staying strong and not giving in. I need to keep that up, because I don't want to fall back into any old habits, and if I stay strong that shouldn't happen. Stress also was/is a trigger for me. Boredum, also. If I was stressed, I'd eat. Bored, I'd eat. Now, things obviously can't be that way. So I'm adapting and finding ways to release that energy. My thinking is if I can use something physical to release it (working out), it will be better for me in more than one way. So that's what I've been trying to do (sometimes, though, I just want to be lazy and watch a movie or something, and that's okay).

Best of luck on week 7, everyone! :]

    It sounds like you're doing well for yourself and not giving in to anything, 4 lbs is awesome. A lazy day every now and then really isn't that big of a deal, you'll probably find you needed the rest more than anything. I hope that you too have a great week 7.

    Congratulations on dropping 4 pounds, and most times I just want to curl up in bed with a book, but I'm trying to fidget(not a pretty sight), but it does burn about 300 calories extra a day.
