Mid week update post and a Thank You.

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Sliding back into a groove is how the last few days have gone, making good decisions where whats going into my mouth is concerned has not been the easiest thing in the world and I am feeling hungry starting about 4pm daily. My body wants more and it wants it right now dammit! but I know that walking through this initial burst of rebellion that will eventually subside needs to be done, then things can get back to normal.

Sticking mainly with whole foods as I was doing before I fell off of the wagon is my plan, I have also started counting calories again while my drinking has remained the same since 2008, 1 gallon of green tea and close to if not more than another gallon of H2O daily so no change was needed there besides stopping with the coffee in the morning.

Over all this "restart" is going as I would hope, the scale is cooperating, getting in some movement is happening and all while I nurse a shoulder injury. Posting in the blog again is helping I think as it gives me a place to "put it out there" how things are going so I will continue to post as often as I can.

Today the post will have to be short, sweet and to the point though as I have my daughter that just woke up so my attention is needed elsewhere, Thank you for the support as of late, the emails are great and the comments help more than you would think.

Until next time

As Ever

    I've been on and off SP a number of times. Lot's of backsliding. A few days ago I decided I'm getting back on track and came back to this site for motivation. (I'll start to post in a few days, but for now, I'm browsing around.)

    I just want to say, that you've done it for me! I'm excited again! I just finished reading about 30 random posts of yours. (and I'll go back for more) If you need any motivation, I highly suggest going to read some of your old writing!!!!!!!

    You're such a great guy!

    When I first cut back my calories I had to keep a bag of carrots with me at all times. If I started to get hunger pangs, I'd have carrots till it subsided. It is was horrible I'd eat 100 calories of almonds. After a week it went away completely. Our bodies and our minds need time to adjust. Just like your daughter, sometimes it wants attention it doeesn't really need, it just needs some discpline ;)

    WOOHHOO!!!! I have the SAME issue at 4 pm!!! at one point, when I was 'hardcore', I was making a small protein shake at that time..well, I'd have it at 3-3:30 and it helped immensely!! I'd get full and have a bit of sweetness and I made it til dinner time.
    Sorry about the shoulder-hope it's not serious. I'm glad the scale is rewarding you. Another thing I thought of that might help(b/c I saw your before/after pics on your page) : what if you post those somewhere(or more than one place) where you'll see them? When you're thinking of shoving something unnecessarily extra in your mouth, maybe the smaller you will remind you of where you're wanting to go. Also, it might make you thi nk of taking that little girl for a brisk walk.
    good luck!!! keep on keepin' on!

    Ok buddy, you are off and running (not literally, but it's a real good start)! If you're going to answer those hunger calls, make sure it's with the healthy stuff...don't waste any calories on junk! Ok? You're getting your control back, posting and I'm sure that little one will keep you moving, but don't forget your "fitness moving"... Hang in there, big guy, you're on your way back! emoticon
