Week 13 - I Gained Again...

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

because I haven’t had my head in the game. Working out for me is no brainer and I fight to workout every chance I get. I need to have the same fight with my eating. I think that I need to take the pressure off. I know it sounds counter-intuitive but I know it will help. I'm close to moving back into the 150s and I don't want that to happen.

My plan is to to plan for some GF,DF,EF goodies so that I don’t feel deprived. I also have to keep my eye on the prize and remember that this a journey not just a destination. I will have to deal with many issues and I’m sure that I will go through this same lapse multiple times in the future. Life is going to happen. I have to deal with it and as long as I get back on the wagon after the lapse no matter how long it lasts or how many pounds I gain, I know that I will be successful.

10 tips to get back on the weight-loss track

This week I will be working on these 2. To distract myself, I think that I will declutter the house.

• Avoid mindless eating and drinking
When you’re watching TV, at a party or whenever your emotions urge you to binge. Rehearse in your mind what to do in those situations. Be aware of your food triggers that make you eat impulsively and not through hunger. Triggers include seeing food or having easy access to food, social events and your emotions. Or, seek professional counseling to work on effective strategies.

• Distract yourself when you feel the urge to snack
Go for a walk, brush your teeth, take a bath or chat online to your support group. If you eat out of boredom, find a new hobby or interest that gets you out of the house.
