I need to figure out why?

Sunday, January 26, 2014

I checked in two weeks ago and at that time I was really plugging along nicely. The week after that was still good. However, this past week I would say I got an F. I still like to think about my life in grades. I always HAD to have an A until college. At that point in time, I was even satisfied with B's but an F. An F was like a bad word that was NOT part of my vocabulary. I do not like F's, STILL!!

I need to figure out why this last week has been harder than the rest of this month. I am not really 100% sure. I think the biggest change was that I stopped being PRESENT. I started letting my stresses get to me. When I do this, I eat. I know a lot of us do this but obviously this is not going to help me (or any of us) achieve goals.

I had a migraine a few days last week too. You know what? I am going to not beat myself up over one week. There are 48 more weeks this year and that's a lot. One pound a week would be 48 pounds; that's a ton and more than my weight loss goal so what's one week. Nothing - it's nothing!

This week I am going to try to do a better job of being present; of thinking about my choices; of not indulging in the evening when I want ice cream or chocolate.

Hang in there. It's never easy. We've been programmed so long to handle stress in unhealthy ways. You can do this. Just take it a week at a time or a day at a time. We're all here for you!
Big Hugs!

    Some days we need that reminder that "we didn't put the weight on overnite and it won't come off overnite." The best thing about what you are doing is that you are not throwing in the towel - you are here starting each day fresh. Jillian Michaels says we need to be PRESENT - I could "hear" her coaching with that same statement as I read your blog. I hope you have a fabulous week. You are worth these efforts and you will figure it out. You've got it!

    You'll get the triggers all figured out and get in control of those triggers! Definitely don't beat yourself up over it!

    You're here on SP and writing a blog and being so honest about what you've been doing, that that's success right there! You're doing it and sometimes we have to have a downer to get us back on the stick. I've lost 4# now in 2 weeks and today I really overate to the point of not feeling good. Well, now with going through this, I know that with thinking how I don't really like how I feel because of eating wrong, that will help me to do better, just like you are saying you want to do and we will do better. Better than the bad times. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
