I need to reset that set point

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

I saw the number going up on the scale and realized that I need to change what I am eating. I started eating junk and it has gotten out of hand. Anyone here with a Costco membership? Beware of the Kirkland European cookies with Belgium chocolate. They are soooo good! I am wearing them now! I think they look better in the box than on my thighs. lol

I am back to eating real food and trying to make sure I get a green smoothie at least every other day. The numbers on the scale practically screamed at me, "Whoa! Slow down there! I realized that I am at that setpoint when I first starting gaining when I hit the mid-30s. I sort of hung there for a bit before gaining more. Then When I started to lose that extra weight, I was stuck right here for a year.
So, I want my weight to to go back down in terms of less body fat and no I better do it now.
I am still doing the yard projects and will most likely do so for the next few weeks, weather permitting. But on those days I cannot get out and run. I will ride the recumbent bike to get my fitness level back up to par.

Even though I am physically active, it is not the same as exercising. Must be the different use of muscles and jioints because running sure does keep the aches and pains away.

    I've got a problem with my "set point" wanting to be at 179# and I don't want that. Dr. Beck has stayed slim for over 20 years so I know her method works. GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN NOW. I need to yell that at myself more often.

    Good for you for catching it early. I love my Costco membership. I can't say I've had the cookies but I have other issues there. LOL

    emoticon emoticon I do have a Cosco membership, but haven't gotten through the cookie area yet---sounds like maybe I should stay away from it. I totally would flip out about those cookies, as chocolate is my weakness. I too know I have to cut down again with the eating as the weight seems to be edging up not down again. emoticon
