When I'm actively losing, I stop myself from having the treats, thinking I can have them when the weight is back off. Now I listen to Nell's experiences and advice, and maybe need to revise my attitude. Maybe I just have to face that I cannot have those treats at all, (Ever?)

Cograts to you Joan emoticon The week end seems be the hardest time for me if im not busy. This week end we had my 4 yr old grandsons for a few hours they wanted a snack, talk about from the mouth of babes. they did'nt want any cookies they wanted the carrots and celery i had bought to make a chicken soup. made me stop and think if they can do it why can't I. lol emoticon

Joan, that wonderful feeling you had last night, going to bed knowing you had just had a food day where you did everything you were supposed to do? You can have that every night. It can be a daily treat. The anticipation of that glorious feeling is what keeps me on track.

I am always on the lookout for strategies to deal with my food issues. Its hard. My biggest issue is not thinking about what I'm eating...and then I end up eating way more than I should, of things that are not necessarily the best for me.

Planning meals is great, when I can do it. Instead of going "I'm hungry, what can I munch on", or giving in to whatever treats are available and thinking "oh I'll just eat less later" - because that NEVER works - I can focus on what I know I will be having later.

My problem now is actually planning. I'm bad at it. I can do a day ahead, sometimes. Its a struggle, but I'm working on it, one day at a time.

Joan, I know you can do it. You're strong.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's learning to dance in the rain.

Good on you Michelle and Joan you are both doing great, We can only take one day at a time and hope that day is good. I am the same as soon as I get out of my comfort zone I go a bit crazy with food, I think by doing the No sugar challenge with Joan it has helped me stay away from that, now I have to think about not over eating the other food, so one day at a time for me.

It seems the weight does effect us with the aches and pains. My heels had stopped hurting for a very long time...then they began again. Coincidence? Not. It was that I was almost back to my start weight. Yesterday like you I had a pretty good day. Not great. I did make a couple bad choices. But I went to bed and I wasn't bloated. So it was a good day. I also got in a good walk with my daughter, and I got a bunch of work done in the house. So burn baby burn those calories away. So Joan emoticon Heres to our continued success one day at a time.

Michelle

It all begins with me.

I can honestly say yesterday (Sunday) was no doubt my best food choice day of the entire week. Oh I could have done a few things differently, but for the most part it was all good. I actually went to bed last night not feeling like a beached whale. So that is a beginning. So today is to try and do better than I did yesterday. Thinking before I eat, having my meals planned out, which I have done that. Got in lots of activity yesterday, yes....up and down that step ladder....hanging those Christmas lights. Still having problems with the ones in the courtyard, so as I told Bob last night, giving them one more try and if that doesn't work we maybe without courtyard lights this year. It's not the end of the world. I have come to think of my weight loss journey as those Christmas lights.....get them all hung up and all it takes is just one bad bulb, bad fuse, and they all go out. Same with my eating, get me out of my routine, I can be glad, happy or sad and the food monsters show up. And the last time I went for coffee with some of the WW ladies, one of the gals was talking about her sister complaining of her back, legs, blah, blah, and bottom line she just didn't feel good. Well the sister told her sister that was complaining....do you think it could be due to you weigh over 300 pounds and you sit and watch TV most of the time?
I walked away thinking....well I'm not 300 pounds, but I am carrying 30 pounds more than I was when I had my last surgery....that is no doubt why my back, leg, blah, blah and I just don't feel good bothers me. Another reason to get on track and stay on track.

Love,
Joan
