Self sabotage in progress

Thursday, November 28, 2013

Yeah, nice one. My brain once again tricked me into thinking that just because I ate a little bit too much yesterday, "I might as well" today too.

This always happens after a successful weigh-in. Sigh.

What's the solution to this, except the obvious, which is to practice some self control? Monthly weigh-ins instead?

    instead of rewarding yourself with food aftera successful weigh in reward yourself with non food rewards,i.e. body lotion ,hand cream.a good book.some me time a good exercise,etc etc.or is it more the attitude i have weighed in now i can eat as i will have a whole week to work it off or loose it?that is also true but thing how much more you would loose weight if you didnīt have to work off your indulgent meal as well.just try to keep that thought in mind.donīt wait till a new day to resatart start this very can do this

    I think the fact that you are aware of what sabotages your great efforts will be enough to stop it before it happens next time. Once you find the triggers and self talk lies that sabotage you, you are then able to reinforce self discipline before they happen. That's how it works for me! You are doing so great on your journey. emoticon

    I don't think I could go a whole month without weighing in. I am one that weighs herself too much.

    Well I weigh daily but log my weightloss on Spark every Wednesday. I know my weight fluctuates for no reason sometimes which is why I weigh daily.

I'd get back on my plan now. Don't wait til tomorrow. If you still have your evening meal to eat, eat a third of your calorie allowance. Don't try to eat even less to make up for it - you'll just get hungry and lose control.

Have you written down your reasons for wanting to lose weight? Thinking about that can act as an incentive to stick to your plan.

Or set yourself a little challenge. I will stick to my diet properly for 3 days in a row! I can do this! After the 3 days it will be easier to continue.

Hope that helps....


Have you heard of a book called "The Beck Diet Solution" by Judith Beck? It uses cognitive behaviour therapy techniques to help you stick to whatever weight loss plan you're on. There's a spark team for it. Try it! It works!

    I know.. The problem is that when I start seeing those cookies everywhere, I lose focus of everything else, haha. 2 days easily turns into 2 weeks for me.. emoticon emoticon

    Two days with 'bad' nutrition is not that bad, now you just need to cut down gthe rest of your week with your calories. You still have 5 days to 'save' yourself!
