Landing Back on Earth...
I have been all over the map the last few weeks and have felt very out of control. I see the link between my bad eating habits and my sense of control in other areas of my life. I went dancing last night and saw some pics...lets just say, they m... Read more
I can't believe it! Since I have decided not to diet anymore, I have lost 5.5 lbs! In 5 days! It is just amazing to me...I am still stunned. I am only 0.5 lbs above the lowest weight I have been all year! And, I have been less stressed out becau... Read more
Trying Something New...
I am going to try something that I haven't done in years...Not be on a diet! I can't even remember the last time I wasn't counting calories, points, etc. I think that this might be a problem for me because I am not paying attention to my body. I... Read more
Day 5 - Still hanging in there
So...I think I am feeling a little better about everything. I am still struggling with the night eating, but it has decreased tremendously! I think the past four days I have been under 1800 calories each day, with a few days under 1600, and that... Read more
Day 3 - Surviving both heathly eating and food poisoning!
So, I did well yesterday. I had a salad with dinner and went to kickboxing. Whoa! I think that might have been a mistake. I think the tomatoes I ate last night in my salad were not good. Needless to say, I spent the night feeling miserable and u... Read more
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
