Day 2 - Epiphany (sp?)
Today went a lot better...however, I am feeling my feelings now and realizing that I was not as happy as I thought. I think I hid a lot of things from myself and now that I am trying to deal with my weight issues, these issues are coming up in f... Read more
Day 1 - Turning a new leaf
I am starting a new today. Yesterday, I had a huge emotional breakdown. What I have realized is that no weight loss program (WW, Jenny Craig, etc) is going to solve my issues with food. I am having these problems because of underlying emotional ... Read more
This is going to take some doing!
Today, I am at about 1900 calories. Yes, it's more than my intended 1600, but less that my norm. I caught myself in the kitchen close to 7 times tonight wandering about, looking for food. It wasn't food I was truly wanting though. Frustration, a... Read more
I Think I Might Have Gotten It Now...
So, yesterday, I kinda threw in the towel. Because I have been on "diets" for most of my life, I still know I didn't make as poor of choices as I could have. Regardless, it was not the best decisions I could have made. I went out with friends la... Read more
I Stopped Dead in My Tracks!
I was feeling bored, very anxious and worried. What did I do? I went to the fridge. I was about to eat something and realized what I was doing. I stopped, became very upset with myself. Stuck a piece of gum in my mouth and started some hot water... Read more
I started Jenny Craig on Tuesday afternoon. Yesterday was my first full day and I even went to an Angels game. I got on the scale this morning and was down FOUR pounds! I can't believe it! Today has gone well so far. I haven't had a chance to ex... Read more
Okay...I hope I don't regret what I just did!
So, I was doing great today. Was in my calories range and then...I was sitting in front of the TV and was trying everything I could to not wander in the kitchen. My willpower is not that strong and I ate, just a few at first, sugar wafers. I had... Read more
Not too bad!
So, I think the last day I tracked food was Friday. It has been a busy weekend...but I was very conscious of what I ate and made the best choices I could for the moment. I don't think I did stellar, but it is also not as bad as it could have bee... Read more
Woohoo! First SUCCESSFUL Day in a Long Time!
So, yesterday went well! I could have blown it a million times, but I didn't! I stayed under 1550 and I am so proud of myself. Last night I was trying to book a flight online and it took me 5 hours. I was so frustrated because every flight I cho... Read more
So far, so good!
I am within my calorie range right now, in fact I have about 50 calories to spare. I may have a sugarfree cocoa made with hot water later tonight. I am going to start my homework right now and do all I can to stay away from the kitchen! I did th... Read more
Opps! I did it again...
So, last night...the same thing happened. Again, I really think if I am in front of the TV, it is a very strong learned habit to start eating something. I didn't even have dinner, I had snacky things.
So, that means that I have to have a n... Read more
Today will be better...
Yesterday, I did good until the evening. Instead of snacking, I should have just done my homework and it would have been a win-win. Instead, I turned on the TV. That is the kiss of death for me. I knew that, but last night I (for whatever reason... Read more
It's A New Day...
I have been on and off WW for 22 years now. More of my life has been dieting, dieting, dieting and being totally aware of what I was doing and then chucking it out the window. Apparently, that is not working for me. I have lost the most weight b... Read more
It's amazing how friends can be so...
helpful! My best friend and I talked....a lot over the last two weeks. I have realized that I literally feed my feelings instead of allowing myself to feel them. It seems so stupid. But, this week, I stopped my diets and took a look at what I wa... Read more
Yesterday was a success!
So I did it! I had a really good day yesterday. I had 1536 calories, excercised for a half hour and didn't graze last night. I didn't get all my water in though, which is why I woke up this morning feeling puffy. But, I did go and buy a Brita wa... Read more
