Okay, I went off the wagon today, but tomorrow...

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Okay, I went off the wagon today, but tomorrow (and even NOW) is a whole new plan!

I only lost 4 ounces when I weighed in today and it discouraged me so much that I went to lunch with my daughter and ate all the no-no foods. The foods went right through me. I went to the bathroom 3 times before I even left Wal-Mart.

MJ - I know you read my posts and I am going to follow your advice - throw away the scale!

I know I am making progress because my clothes are getting looser. I will change my diet plan though. I am eating so much more on the 1200 - 1550 calorie plan. Before I came back to SP - I didn't eat that much, but I didn't exercise.

Now that I've added a solid exercise plan into my daily routine, I will eat only when I'm hungry.

Let's see how that works for the next few weeks. I am also drinking only water and I do reach and even surpass the 8 glasses a day goal.

So, I fell off the wagon - who cares? Not me - I'm gonna dust myself off and STAND.

Thank you ALL for your continued support. I have NOT given up!

Be someone's inspiration - you can make a difference!

Have a blessed Sunday! emoticon

    I have one day a week where I 'fall off' from my very healthy eating. It started when I rigorously did Body for Life for a few years (2005 - 2008) and I lost 40# without tears. It reminds me what is out there. It also reminds me what I really like in life.

At one time I thought I just HAD to have the doughnuts from this one really good bakery. Allowing myself to eat those doughnuts as much as I wanted one day a week, was kind of funny. I never went to that bakery, nor did I eat a single doughnut. Being limited to one day, I had other things I really wanted to eat and didn't want to waste it (there really is just so much you can eat in one day) on something that was so-so.

Years later, I can STILL pass up those doughnuts, even when I'm not on the Lose Weight Wagon. It's just one of the many lessons I learned.

Don't feel bad about one day. It was like a field trip. You just have to go back to "school" and work hard the next day. Remember:
You didn't gain this in one day
It is a lifestyle
Life Happens.

    Yesssssssss, please get rid of that scale! I and so many others messed up many of our diets because of that contraption. I think it plans evil things, to mess with our heads. I swear its the creator of YO YO dieting, because we get so discouraged if we make it a habit to check it all the time. And I did, I am only saying this from my experiences. I cannot tell you how elated I was when I found out I lost 22 lbs after waiting 3 months!! Makes a person keep working at obtaining their goal, whereas using the scale everyday makes us do just what you did.

That's right pick yourself up, kick that scale to the curb! Keep up your exercise regime daily, your doing good!! You can do this, I have faith in you!!

I don't believe in tomorrow, right now is the time to make it better. I tended to think OK, I blew it so I am going to eat poorly for the rest of the day. (Tell me how many of us thought like that) Nah, I walked out of the Dr's office that morning of March 20th with that devastating diagnosis, and I have been on this journey to this day.

I cannot tell you how much I love me right now. I have boosted energy, confidence, and have a can do attitude. I wasn't like that several months ago, I was depressed, close to being agoraphobic, wasn't on here, and didn't want to do anything with friends.
Not anymore emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have to add, the scale is a useful tool at maintenance, not before. One of the reasons I failed at WW they wanted to weigh you every week, and of course if I did poorly or didn't lose enough, I binge'ed! How sad is that? And if I did do good, I went and rewarded myself with something sinful, usually doughnuts or a Hot Fudge sundae. Yurrrrrrrrk
