Confessions of a Plateaued Sparker

Saturday, December 08, 2012

It's been over a month since my last blog. I guess I've been a bit discouraged because I have really plateaued on my weight. And it's not one of those plateaus where you have been doing everything right and the weight still won't come off - no, it's because I have been eating too much.

I cut myself some slack for Thanksgiving, and of course now there are numerous Christmas gatherings to face. I really don't want to be too strict with myself at this time of year. However, I am still overeating on just normal days. Why??? I had really been doing well on not overeating i the evening, just a small snack as my calorie "budget" allowed, and then made myself stop. But lately, it's been cheat, cheat, cheat in the evenings! It needs to STOP.

I've been keeping up well on my walking, going further every week. I really need to start adding some strength training, but so far I don't have any motivation to do so. Maybe after Christmas...

So that is my confession. I need some motivation to change before the scale starts going UP. emoticon

    I find it helps to brush my teeth shortly after supper. Then I'm not tempted to eat more later!

    You know what you need to do. Just set some tiny goals to get you started back on track. Don't wait until after Christmas. I struggle with night time over-eating also. SOmetimes it works to say outloud to myself "just go to bed NOW!" and it also has worked to start a streak and see how many nights in a row I can go without splurging at night, maybe give yourself points for each time you succeed, and then be sure to have a (non-food) reward planned! Don't give up! Dig deep for the motivation you need. emoticon
