A Little Slide

Saturday, February 02, 2013

I've noticed the past week I haven't been as careful about what I'm eating. I've not went over my calories but I'm not making the best choices either. I blogged about eating out with the kidlets one night. Another night I ate very little fruits and veggies. Tonight we ate at the boat and had a sugar cookie on the way home. (I will give myself a huge pat on the back thought - I ate a HUGE salad first, then green beans, corn and wild rice, THEN I hit the other stuff - was a little full by that point so I ate way less than I have in past trips to the boat). I'm feeling a little more bloated and not quite as happy in my skin. The scale hasn't went up, but it hasn't went down either.

I wish I could pinpoint exactly what's going on, but I'm not sure. I know there are good days and bad. I just don't like having several bad days in one week. And usually I can name something that is going on that might lead to the bad days. I can't really do that in this case. I think that bothers me as much as anything. I do know tomorrow is back on track day. I have fruit set out for breakfast and my water bottle ready to go to work with me. My gym bag is packed and ready to go for tomorrow night.

And the damned sugar cookies? All gone.

    Don't judge yourself to harshly, you must live and be human. One day at a time...

    First of all I have to say, you're looking great! You've made significant progress so far. You've lost more then 50 pounds. You're an inspiration to me, seeing as how I'm just getting started, again. How will I look and feel when there are 50 pounds less of me. Right now I can only imagine, but I'm sure it will be much better.

So, you had a week that wasn't the greatest. You didn't lose any weight, but if you look on the positive side you didn't gain either. You could have made some better choices, but at least you didn't spin totally out of control, and you're getting right back on track again.

There's a lot of pressure when you're trying to lose weight. Logging everything you eat, staying within your calorie range, getting regular exercise, and dealing with constant temptations every day. Maybe sometimes you need to take a breather and give yourself permission to indulge a little bit if you have enough self control to do that. If you focus on maintaining your weight instead of losing for a short time it gives you a chance to let your hair down, just a little bit, and regroup. Then, when you get started again you'll feel reinvigorated and ready to roll again. Hang in there. You're doing awesome.

    when you eat out you are not sure what is in the food fat salt sugar msg artificial stuff etc and when your not used to eating that way you can feel it. also us women are slaves to hormones i am in premenapuse yeah for me . never felt so out of wack in my life and harder for the scale to go down and stay down. just keep eating good and exercising and don't feel bad for the bad days unles the pile up.

    Sometimes we just plateau for awhile, no matter how hard we're trying.

But at least you know where you went off track. And you are definitely taking steps to correct it. emoticon

    It's a very healthy sign that you are prearing tonight for tomorrow. Good luck, Glenn
