Hanging On for Another Day!
I made it through another day. Today has been one of the better days calorie wise. I should have gone to the gym for my kickboxing class, but I have to work tonight at 9pm. I actually have to leave in about 30 minutes. I am so tired!
I als... Read more
Fire & Ice Challenge...
I just joined the Fire & Ice Challenge on the 30 somethings (with 50-99 lbs to lose) board. I think it is a good idea! We started Aug 1st or later (I started today) and the challenge ends on Dec. 1st. Today is the first blog after yesterday's po... Read more
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
