I totally hear you, Jeffscogirl! I've been diligently tracking calories and busting my buns getting more exercise for three weeks now and the scale will not budge. (This morning I might have shaken it a little to make sure, you know, that nothing was broken). Is this what our late thirties are all about? Agh. Where's my metabolism? I think I left it in my twenties :)

I need to work on my motivation today! I feel like I'm making "good" decisions and doing "good" things, but yet the scale, she remains a cranky ol' stubborn broad.

Help!!! :)

Well after last weeks doctors visit. I was needing to loose some 20lbs. My BMI is over the 26 mark. So much for losing anything since the beginning of the year. I actually gained 15lbs. I just need to exercise and no excuses.

Too tired to workout today. My son woke up at 3 am yesterday and I couldn't get back to sleep, and last night my hubby was too "huggy" so I couldn't stretch out well to sleep, so I'll make smart choices for food and rest today so I can bring it all on next training :)

Well I am back to the pool for this summer. Lurving it!! Making an extra effort to stop all the sugars in my healthy eating life.

Was sliding back for a bit but I think I will get it this time. Wish me luck!

Nothing feels as good as being thin feels!

Hey everyone! New to the group and wanted to say hi! I've been up and down on my weight loss journey. Lost a good amount last year but then went back to crummy habits. This year so far I've been making baby steps and just completed my first half marathon (although I limped it the last few miles). So now I'm more motivated than ever to get to my goal weight but more importantly just get toned and feel good in my clothes again! Hoping that tracking things on here and getting involved in forums will help keep me motivated and accountable. Good luck to everyone else :)

I'm back again, only this time I'm estimating my weight. I'm on vacation right now and eating vast quantities of my favorite goodies. I'm looking for a forum where I can post daily about how great I've been eating, how much water, etc, as opposed to losing that .3 since yesterday. I get so focused on the scale instead of the bigger picture, so easily I become discouraged. Today is a new day.

I've been lazy with watching my sugar, so I will focus on keeping added sugar out of my food this week! I'm sooooo close to my goal!

3 weeks down! I just came off the Dr. Oz 3-day Detox Diet. It was three smoothies per day plus supplements and detox bath. I skipped the supplements and the bath. Day 2 was the hardest, but I am proud of myself for sticking with it. Even if there are no medical benefits to detoxing, there was a benefit to me in that I accomplished something and didn't give into my boredom/emotional eating pattern. This morning coming off the diet, I drank a smoothie (because I like them) and ate a few hunks of cheese. I have another smoothie in the fridge at work for a snack, but I do intend to eat a salad or something at lunch. I am giving myself a cheat day on Friday for moms night out!

I agree with not saying certain things are completely off limits Jes. That just makes them even more appealing... like forbidden fruit!

1 week in the books. It was weigh-in day and I was down 2.3 lbs plus it is that TOM. I've done well with avoiding the candy dishes hiding around the office and even brought the majority of DD's Easter candy (and leftover Christmas candy) into the office so it won't tempt any of us at home. I did eat one single Rolo yesterday and I looked very hard at (but didn't touch) the chocolate in the receptionist's bowl on the way out of the office last night.

Not gonna lie though. I feel hungry all the time. For breakfast, I had leftover mashed cauliflower with garlic and feta. Don't be grossed out by me. It was all I had at work and I was starving. And I'm still hungry. Drinking water now to see if that helps.

Good idea with the dark chocolate!
Personally, I would rather give in a little bit than have an all out binge later, so I will allow myself a little bit of what I'm craving, enough to make the craving go away, and then call it good. I know that doesn't work for everyone, but since I don't make anything completely off limits, it seems to be working so far for me!

Jes is right Jeffscogirl the longer you go without whatever you are craving the weaker the craving will be! Did you make it thru the day? Not that I'm encouraging you to cheat, but if I'm craving chocolate really bad, I will buy the darkest chocolate I can find... like 70+% and have a little piece. It kills the craving and is bitter enough to not want to keep going back for more.

I love your challenge! Good luck with avoiding the cravings, the longer you go without the items you're giving up, the less you'll crave them. I'm right there with you, my apple isn't nearly as satisfying as the junk food I know I have tucked away somewhere! You can do it!

It's Tuesday, which means I'm starting day 3 of my stop-making-crappy-excuses-put-the-chocola
te-down-get-your-buns-off-the-couch-an
d-take-control challenge.

Day one and day two were great - my motivation was high, I felt good about my choices, and I felt great about starting again.

Today? I. Am. Hungry.

I know it's all in my head. I just ate a bag of carrots that has to have filled my stomach. It's just that my stomach isn't used to carrots - it's used to chocolate and bread. It's like getting money for your birthday after years and years of big huge stuffed animal presents. You think you didn't get ANYTHING, when in reality, what you got something much more valuable.

So I am going to go take a lap around the building, drink some water, maybe pop some gum in my mouth (I'm a teacher - there are no students today, so I CAN chew gum), and do everything in my power to make it to lunch without touching my afternoon snack. Intellectually I know I'm not actually hungry - I just ATE! But emotionally, all I want is a little bite (which will turn into half a pound) of chocolate.

Wish me luck!!!

Good Morning everyone. I'm new to the team but thought I would jump right in if that is okay.

It's Monday... Here's to a good week! I'm hoping for some better weather. We had a cold rainy weekend, we even had some sleet yesterday afternoon! I'm sick of it and anxious for Spring!!

Reading thru some of the previous posts to get up to speed:
Jes~ great job finding your motivation.
Harley's Mom ~ each day is a new day, each minute is a new minute. Keep that in mind as you look for your motivation!

I'm both a grazer and a boredom eater. I also have no will power. If it in the house I will eat it. My husband always complains there are no snacks in the house, and I always say: if it isn't in the house I won't be tempted to eat it!

hi, today I managed to stick to my goals. No sweets, no more bread after breakfast. I managed to say no to popcorns. I am doing pretty well. But it is only 4 pm and evenings are more difficult. I am sure I can handle it. Have a nice day :) emoticon

I am both a stress and boredom eater, which is a terrible combination and I like everything from sugary foods to salty and fatty foods. Yesterday, I went over my calories by 200-300 calories. In the past, this would have derailed me to the point of giving up. Today is a new day though, and better choices can be made!

My mini-victories so far are (1) yesterday I managed to avoid the random candy dishes at the office and the hoard of easter candy around my house; and (2) resisted eating the cheese crackers that Husband was munching in the car this morning.

And yes, it's a bit gross that Husband was eating Cheez-Its for breakfast, but it was a rough morning. I held out for yogurt and steel cut oatmeal at the office though.

Just started back up with Spark People tracking my nutrition and exercise. I used this after having my 2nd baby and it worked great! I hope it works as well for me this time after just having my 3rd almost 7 months ago. I have no excuses now to keep on this extra weight. My first weekly weigh in is tomorrow and I am hoping for some good news. I feel much better already and am starting to enjoy working out again. :)
Reading other posts on this group and seeing everyone succeeding is a great motivator for me!

I've been lurking but haven't posted too much. I have been working hard at just keeping on track because I tend to be a quitter. I started with a competition at work, we track our minutes exercised and the top teams win prizes. So that's helping me stay on track - I don't want to let my team down. Take care all!! emoticon emoticon

Back to tracking my food. If not here on Spark, I write in my workout journal. I've been stuck for a few weeks, and I think it's because I've gotten lazy with watching my added sugar.

I moved continents middle of last year and finally, I joined a local gym on Friday. Took me long enough!
Saturday I did a gruelling fitness glass and it was depressing to realise ho unfit I have become - and see myself in that full-length mirror for an hour. Meh.
But, I went again today for a Zumba class and a run and it felt GOOD. I am not the most rhythmic of gals, but I love the "as long as you have fun, all is good" vibe of Zumba.

Anyhow, pretty new on these boards, but hope you're all doing well. I keep reminding myself to focus on the day and do the best that you can.

Good Morning beautiful people!!!!

I will start off by giving myself a pat on the back. Today is officially day 1 of my journey to a healthier slimmer ME! I did 20 minutes of step aerobics and 10 minutes of yoga. I know that 30 minutes of exercise isn't much but through the research on Spark People they say to ease into it and increase as you go. I will be honest....It killed me to do a whole 30 minutes, but I DID IT!!!! And I have been keeping up with what I eat and my calorie intake. I am tired at the moment and ready to take a nap, but it is worth it.

Weather was so gorgeous today that my walk didn't feel like exercise!

Bottom line: Do your best!
If at first you don't succeed try, try again!

I've been bad lately;) Have feets (foots? many feet? yards!) of snow dumped on us and weeks of below freezing temperatures isn't helping my mood or motivation. Hanging on though.

I'm 5'8" and determined to make a change now.

Just completed a 10 -day 10 set challenge (120 squats, 50 push ups, 60 sit ups, 100 burpees) The real challenge for me was the burpees, but I knocked them out today and I don't want to do another burpees for at least 6 months!!!!!!!!!!lol SERIOUSLY! But I am so proud of myself. Lost 3 lbs this month, shooting for 5 lbs next month!

Peace and Blessings!

I bundled up and ran this morning. There was no wind, and the run was actually quite pleasant!

Hi,

Checking in. Calories in check till now, but saturday dinner is coming.

No extra exercise today. Had to work in the morning and lots to do in the afternoon, plus my back is killing me.

Tomorrow I will make up for it.

Ok, I'm back to posting in this team. Been logging on my own, but not posting. I have committed to losing another 20 lbs this year! It's on and I am prepared to make this work this time! Have a strength training workout scheduled for lunch with a 10-15 min walk/jog afterwards. Keeping my eating in check....It's on 2014!

Peace and Blessings!

Good luck to you as well. You are correct changing lifestyles of any kind is hard but is rewarding. It is so easy to get distracted and go back to old ways but with the weight loss I have experienced I refuse to gain it back. Think positive and all things are possible.

Whoopsie, gained all the weight back, getting it together now. It happens. I knew it was sneaking up on me too, but I was slacking. Working on developing better habits one habit at a time, adding things in gradually again. Letting new healthy things take root first before doing something else.

Right now it's using tea in the afternoon and evening instead of snacking. Hot decaf herbal tea for every snack I want to have adds up to a lot of avoided calories during the week. Good habit 2014 #1. emoticon
