Holding myself accountable...

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

Okay. Not much to say cause I'm upset with myself right now. But I'm holding myself responsible. I went over my normal calorie limit (1200) by 417 calories. It was all from chocolate. I chocolate binges, and I forced myself to track it all. Except for some reason, tracking it wasn't making me stop. Wtf. Anyway. I made myself face it, and tomorrow is a new day.

    Sweetie, that is the bare minimum. Are you sure you are getting enough calories? You may want to double check that Spark People has all the numbers right as far as your weight and how many calories you are burning. If you aren't eating enough, it's completely understandable that you keep sabotaging yourself! The body does funny things when it's not getting enough food.

    1200 calorie limit? Are you sure that is enough calories? Make sure that you have your fitness goals adjusted to account for what you do weekly etc.. it just seems like a really low target given your weight luv! My calorie range is 1700-2000 and I loose about 1-2 lbs a week usually so long as I stay within range and keep my fitness minutes in. When I was doing less fitness minutes I was at a 1500-1700 range. Also, I have an allotted amount of chocolate each day to keep me from slipping... just some ideas to help you. I had the same trouble. I planned for peanut m&ms so that I was getting some protein with my candy (made me feel less guilty and made me feel fuller) and I also have chocolate milk every day. Dont beat yourself up. One day is one day and keeping one foot in front of the other and coming back is what makes us change.

    Right there with you on the overages Tuesday. Got done with dinner 3 calories over my high end. But then grabbed something later, should have just gone to sleep.

    Well, at least you've identified, and publicly named another piece of Kryptonite. Time to try and build a shield against it or something.

    Hi there! I understand the frustration of going over your goal. I'm new to this entire system and if I tried to be perfect with it all.....I'm a perfectionist by nature.....I'd have quit the first day without even starting. I've learned a few things though.....1. Taking it slow is a must. Change happens gradually, so if I have an "off" day.....2. Tomorrow is a new day. Thankfully!!! You got this girl, just keep on keeping on!!! I think it's good to be tough on ourselves to a point, just not to the point where we decide this is too hard and give up. Hang in there and get up tomorrow and smile because you can and you have another chance to make a great day of healthy choices. God bless!!

    OKay, I agree with what's already been written here...but I want to add one thing... sooner or later you'll need to decide whether you really want to lose weight now or not. You know that eating the chocolate is your downfall...you've got to find a way to get past it. Don't let it become a mountain...just take it one day at a time and see what else there is that's a better choice out there...I'll bet you'll find something else that you like that's a safer bet.

    Keep on keeping on...

    Go easy on yourself. You are working toward an average nutrition goal and a steadfast regimen. Stick to your overall plan and you will be fine. Being to strict with oneself is a sure way to derail.

    Hold on!

    No need to be upset with yourself about not sticking strictly to your 1200 calorie goal. One day does not break your discipline. Today is over. Own and move on. Read my post from Saturday evening. Blew right past my 1500 low and my 1800 high and cruised into 2200 calories. Not a big deal. I got back on track and it's like it never even happened.

    Just as you won't lose weight from one vigorous workout session, you aren't going to put it back on with a single chocolate binge.
