shoot, I received a last minute invite to dinner with a friend. I made healthy choices at the French Restaurant we went out to, however hadn't planned on going out to dinner during the day, so ended up eating a few too may calories. However I enjoyed every bite very much and will not berate myself over it.

today I failed at saying no to the fresh made cuban sandwich my daughter offered to get me.

She just transferred to a store that sells cuban, etc food. I eat it, she never has. She wanted to know what she is selling. She also got yellow rice with red beans, tostados (deep fried savory plantains) and the sweet plantains. Well I ate half the sandwich, (about a 6inch sub), 1/2 to 3/4 cup of rice and beans, 1/2 tostado, 1 1/2, 2 to 3 inch sweet plantains.

My excuse, they (SP trackers) are always telling me to eat more protein (most of the time eat less than half) and they say I probably am at a plateau because I don't consume enough calories. Have trouble eating over 800. how is that for gall?

My stomach hurts, had to take medicine, I feel guilty but to be honest, yes it was worth it, but then I haven't tracked it yet either. I feel most guilty trying to blame SP, I am sure this is not what they meant.

Yesterday I failed at staying away from sweets at the grocery store. I was almost to the checkout line with my healthy basket of produce and dairy, when I spied the limited edition 1.5 qt of Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie Ice Cream. I did buy it, but the good news is I only had a little bit yesterday and I didn't have any birthday cake at the party I was at later.

Reading all of the support and honesty on this thread made me smile and think that this is a wonderful community.

I am a recovering emotional eater and agree with everyone who posted. Society feeds us conflicting and harsh messages about food and our body images. Try to challenge those thoughts when they sneak into your head and replace them with supportive and honest messages to yourself. Just like the ones in this thread!

Once again a beautiful day was blown in to us by blustery 20 to 30 MPH winds. God granted us beautiful sunshine along with the wind.

I had a busy day today----took one granddaughter for her final fitting and to pick up her prom dress, then off to food pickup, and finally mowed for 30 minutes----until too dark to see.

Tomorrow is weigh in at TOPS.......UGH!!!!!!!! I think I gained this week after going down for 2 weeks straight. I had a grilled chicken salad at one of the casinos last night that was very salty so now I am puffy. I have a sodium intolerance so I eat very little salt---when I do get some I tend to swell way up. At home, all I use is sea salt.

Take care.........Elsie

I really have been making an effort to eat better, but sometimes, I just cannot help myself. I have a little too much chocolate, or perhaps I get the large milkshake. But this weekend, I really did myself in.

Just look at this list: 8 wings, 5 pieces of pizza, 1/2 cheesesteak, 1/2 buffalo chicken hoagie, two eggs, bacon, home fries, toast, french toast (with butter & syrup), medium blizzard (mint oreo), large coffee, 6 mixed drinks...this was JUST on Sunday

Why?
...because at the time, it felt GREAT!!

How do I feel now?
...crappy, really crappy, I didn't sleep well, my stomach hurts, and to think, all of that work that I had put into myself, I really did it to myself this time

What am I going to do now?
...take deep breaths, and start a new day, it's really all I can do. The past is gone, but I have decision & choices for the future.

What a night we had. God really demonstrated His power. First roof rattling 20 to 50 MPH winds followed by rain, hail, thunder, lightning, and more wind, all beginning at 1 AM. We were without power for approximately 45 minutes. Needless to say that I didn't get much sleep and now it's catching up with me.

Cool and chilly this morning. From 85 yesterday to 42 today.

Not much planned for today except laundry and see about a tire for my rider mower. Too wet and cold to do anything outside.

I, too, read all the posts but don't remember enough to post on each individual one---sorry. Some days my memory is right out the window before I even finish reading the post---have to go back and read it 3 or 4 times....LOL

Have a great day.......Elsie

The more I sit...the hungrier I get!!!!!

To lose my seat, I must move my feet!!

I plan to lose more in 2014.

Yesterday my good sense went right out the window. I didn't use the sense God gave a goose nearly all day.....just kept cramming sweet after sweet after sweet into my mouth. First chocolate cookies then homemade cherry pie...ate small servings of them but kept returning and nibbling more and more plus some bite size chocolate squares. UGH!! My head knew better but my hand and heart claimed this victory. I know I shouldn't have them in the house but here they are. Amazingly, I didn't add any pounds. Today my good sense has returned determined to keep the goose in the corner as of right now I don't even want any of these----got my cravings all out yesterday..

Learning to Love yourself even through the "mess ups and failures"~ It is a learning experience, you have only really failed, or messed up after you have given up on yourself completely.
Just a thought to think about, and remind yourself when necessary~

I wouldn't even say bad days, just normal days every once in awhile. Think of this way. Your body has been used to eating a certain amount of calories, so you treat it by eating something normal, a little extra calories. So when you get back to your healthy eating, your body doesn't scream and say "What did you do"? Well that's how I see it.

You are right. The problem is we listen too much to what society says. Not only that, but to what food companies say in regards to what's good and what is good for us. They say we as a society eat too much fat in our meals, so they change the foods we eat to "Fat Free". Then we hear that certain fats are good for you, so we switch to the good fats. It's a roller coaster ride with our bodies, up and down, up and down. I deserve to eat that 1 or even 2 slices of pizza because my bodies is craving something that's not so healthy, but eating a veggie pizza or Hawaiian pizza is healthy and I'll work out to burn off whatever calories I ate. Eating healthy is mostly what I do, but I will on occasion give myself whatever I want from time to time. It doesn't mean I failed. No one fails as I see it.

Yes, we all find ourselves eating something that we know is "bad for us"~ But if we don't allow ourselves some adjustment, like eating the food that we crave some of the time, we will feel like total failures~ How come we allow for others to have this space of adjustment, and we don't do that for ourselves? We are just as valuable and worth as they are? Do we personally believe that?This can be challenging due to listening to what society says about what we should or shouldn't do~ Write down these thoughts in a journal and then reread them after 1 week, it will surprise you how many times you have told yourself certain things~

I 'm speaking on this because this is one of my own personal issues~ Its our self talk, and we need to look at that. We need to listen to what we are saying to ourselves. This is the truth: I am a valuable person, I have equal worth to anyone else, and I deserve to be a human making errors. To make errors is to grow and learn in this journey that we are taking together at Spark people. It is also in learning how to enjoy life, and enjoy our bodies for what, and who we are as individuals, with all our faults and also positive traits as well. Its then we will succeed when we believe in ourselves~

We need to change our way of thinking when we eat the wrong foods because it was a difficult day or things just didn't go right. My last two days consisted of 2 full days of meetings where I had to setup breakfast and lunch. Which included pastries, sandwiches and cookies. That's what I ate for 2 days, including fresh fruit. I had more than my fill, but you know what, I'm not going to say I failed or I ate the wrong foods, because yesterday I put in over 26,000 steps and today I did 18k steps just walking back and forth from 2 days of meetings and I'm not done yet. I'll be doing my mile walk with Leslie and Cardio with Turbo and 10 minute trainer with Horton. I probably did put on a few lbs, but I know that it will be burned off again. I have the entire weekend (my company is off tomorrow) so I have 3 days to burned what I ate.You have to think what you can do, to burn off the extra calories that you ate and not kick yourself each time you mess up. We need to learn to think positively, not negatively. That's how we get ourselves in trouble. So stay positive and turn your situation around by seeing what you can do to burned it off.

I tried for years to stay on track, and I would end up really frustrated. I learned as a teen to eat to comfort myself, and that's a really hard habit to get out of. I would be so hard on myself, and I would just see that I had failed again. Over the last few years, I have somehow stopped beating up on myself when I slip. What I'm trying to say is that just because you slipped up today doesn't mean you failed. Some times are just harder than others, and if you slip, so what? Just keep on trying, and try to treat yourself with kindness. Tomorrow will be a better day, and if it's not, the next day will be. I hope tomorrow is a great day for you!

Today I had a difficult day. I have always struggled with emotional eating and today I lost the battle. I feel as if I have it under control then all of a sudden, subconiously it seems, I find myself turning to food for pleasure. For years food was the only thing in my life I enjoyed. Now I have a wonderful family and so much to enjoy yet I still struggle with finding pleasure in anything but food. Why? I truly feel there is something wrong with me. I know breaking free will not happen over night but I just wish I could be strong enough to confront this demon!!!
