So here is goes. I've been bad really bad! I've not tracked all that I've eaten and been going over my calories since friday!! Ugh! I feel so bad but I'm determined to make this right. I know that I've made some mistakes over the past few days but today is a new day!! I know that the choices I've made is going to come with consequences. I'll probably have a gain on the scale come tomorrow. But I'm not going to beat myself up! I'll take it as a learning experience! I didn't even enjoy over eating, I just kinda fell back into it because I wasn't feeling good and wanted "comfort", and the comfort I was most used to was food. I want a different comfort!! I'm going to try and see what other forms I can get that from! I'm going to sit down today and make a list of options and post them on my fridge! Does anybody have any they run to besides food?? It would sure help! emoticon

Anyways, I'm feeling a little better today. I AM GOING to workout today even if it's just a little!! I need to move! I found that since I haven't been doing much my back hasn't been my friend. When I was walking...after the first couple of days...it started feeling actually better and I had better range of motion!!

Today is a brand new day and I'm going to take it one moment at a time. I am in a positive mood and hope to stay that way!! I hope everybody is having a good day as well! God bless and happy sparking!

    Tina, I've had days where I got too busy to track. At the end of the stressful day I would see I ate double of what I should. I would log in the food anyway because it's what I ate. I don't feel bad about it. I know every day will not be perfect. Once in a while I will overeat. I don't look at it as failure, I look at it as normal. Most people will have an off day at some time.
    I've made many healthy choices. Each healthy choice is a success to me. I have found if I make mini goals I do much better and I feel better. My mini goals are 8 lbs every two months. So far I have been successful and meet my goals ahead of schedule and it feels so good! (before I would set up hard goals and beat myself up for not reaching them). Everyone is different.
    There are times I didn't even lose a pound for 2 weeks, but I kept with my plan and eventually I would lose. For inspiration I watch some SP members videos who have reached their goals. They are so awesome to watch and they motivate me to keep going!
    Congratulations on all your healthy successes! You are doing great! Every healthy choice is one step further toward your goals. You can do this!!!

    I'm kind of restless. When I start feeling a serious snack attack coming on, I take a walk - just get away from the temptation - or distract myself with cleaning, or playing an instrument, or anything to turn my attention elsewhere. I REALLY love to snack!!!

    It's ok to have a bad day. As long as you find you have more good days than bad, you're sure to start feeling better!

    I do one of several things when I'm emotional. Anger tends to be a walk or a active video game. Bored goes into hobbies, playing on the computer or painting or reading a book. Sometimes I'll call up my mom (my best friend!) to vent. Occasionally I'll post a second blog of the day. If I really get in a certain mood, I'll start cleaning the house.

    Basically anything that keeps me out of the kitchen and hands busy. You'll find what works for you.

    No matter what I do, I'll make sure to log all the food I take in, whether it be too many calories or just right I like to see in writing the things I did and the results that happened.

    Understandable to turn to comfort when not feeling well. I love a favorite book, or a fun new read, or a favorite movie or tv series. Also love being cuddled -- husband and/or pets. Hope you find something that works well for you.

    We all stumble from time to time. I've done it. Just recognizing your slip up and then getting back on track, give yourself a pat on the back. Don't be so hard on yourself. Stay positive!
