Hi, I'm new here.
My first week goal is to keep eating healthy foods and make sure I get enough protein in each meal.
I wish you all the best!

Working on day 10 of no bingeing or overeating.

For this challenge I believe I'm on week 1.

To those that started like me, keep going. We can do this.

I need to start measuring my portions more consistently. I need to work on not eating late at night. I need to either stop having snacks or limit my snacks to fruits or vegetables instead of junk.

my first goal is to get below the 280 Mark

--- I haven't been down there in years --- I get close and then start back up the scale.

in the past when things are going well --- I'm on here --- sparkin' all over the place. When I stumble or slip --- I kind of hide --- just just slide all over the place. It's time to stay out in the open --- and not lose ground again.

I'm pretty consistent about tracking food & getting 5+ fruit & veggie servings daily, but I'm terrible about skipping meals then getting too hungry & going over calorie range. It happens at least twice a week. I'm still losing, but I'd love to get more consistent at eating regularly so I don't get too hungry, low energy or blow it.

Eat more veggies. Incorporate snacks at even intervals. Stay within range. emoticon emoticon

My goal is to lose at least a pound a week and not feel tired all the time. I want to have my old energy back and be able to do things on my own again. Due to heart problems, my exercise is limited and so what I eat has to be my mail goal.

I have been tracking food and nutrition very well. But I find myself falling back into non healthy foods and sometimes a sweet binge, teetering over my 1500 calories. So my goal is to eat fruit instead of a sweet or salty unhealthy snack. My fruits and vegetables have been restricted to mostly salads or maybe a piece of fruit.

Goal: 3 fruits, preferably replacing sweet/salty urge
Goal: ID stressful urge, and replace with prayer, writing, hot bath or drawing.
Goal: 1 fruit smoothie this week

Edited by: JOY2425 at: 6/2/2015 (21:21)
Everytime I have a "self-bashing thought" (mad at myself because I failed an attempt to reach a goal)I will find 3 positive things I did to replace that thought! This way I will change my thinking and remove one aspect of emotional eating. Soooooo....

1 negative thought = 3 positive thoughts!

Hope I can bypass 10:00 p.m. snacks. My breakfast is too light and lunch is late afternoon. No accounting for this ridiculous regimen. Both husband and I are retired and I am cookbook junkie. I think I get full looking at delicious pictures of prepared meals.

By evening, we are not starving, my husband is a snacker, but not overweight.

So my goal is to be more consistent with three balanced meals and hide his kettle chips.

I hit a plateau the last couple of week and my chiropractor said something to me that I found very encouraging. He said that although you don't see loss on the scale you can see it in your body by how your clothes fit and in measuring parts of your body. It reminded me that muscle weighs more than fat...so don't get discouraged, just keep on working your program and know that what you are doing will pay off in the long run. Have a great week!

My goal is to stop skipping meals. I am a big one for not eating breakfast in the morning or not eating lunch. I am getting better at it but I still find myself at 6pm realizing I did not eat any meals that day until dinner. I'm hoping this will help me do that.

Eating more nutrient dense foods is the foundation of my health plan, so I figured this challenge should be supportive. I'm hoping to make some Spark friends and learn some new things! I am learning to love veggies and I only want that love to grow!

I just signed up for this challenge tonight but I had already started on Monday to make some new goals and plans for the next 30 days. I had my follow up dr. appt. with an endocrinologist to learn I am to start on a thyroid medication. I asked him advice which was good & bad. He wanted me to not drink so much water (I try to do 8-10 cups a day & more if I do a lot of cardio or yardwork). Not sure if that's a good one since my main fluid I drink is WATER. I sip throughout the day and limit myself to 2 cups of coffee a day. He did say I should aim for 2000 calories burned by exercise a week. So, I thought this was a doable goal for myself.

I have completed the Meta Small Changes Challenge then I just finished the Vionic's Walkabout Challenge. These kept me accountable, motivated, tracking, and moving forward where I feel I've been blundering. Since I don't seem to have a problem with exercise and see improvements in my fitness level the reason the scale doesn't move has got to be with my eating options. Time to educate and put it in action.

This week's goal for me is to achieve burning those 2000 or more calories, eating within range (which I reset my weight loss goal to a small realistic one to aim for ) and learn where I need to be in calories and choices to feel full and have the energy needed to move with fun & purpose and possible see the scale moving downward or inches/clothes feeling loose.

I will learn how to better measure, judge and do portions control to stay in range by the end of this chalenge. I will learn how to incorporate healthier food choices, utilize some great recipes and plan ahead snacks. If I choose to eat a "treat" it has to be in portion control and not an every day or week occurence. I hope to learn a great deal from others who have learned to eat up and still slim down. emoticon emoticon

My goal is to eat a greater variety of vegetables consistently. I eat lots of fruit, but seem to get in a rut when it comes to vegetables, eating the same ones over and over. To do this I need to plan ahead as I live 30 minutes from a grocery store and need to stock up with a weeks worth at a time. When summer gets here it will be easier as I grow a lot of vegetables.

Wise choices each day will get me where I want to be.

I officially started this challenge yesterday and, after just one day of eating less and eating healthier, I'm feeling so much better already. I stayed within my calorie range even though I had one extra spoonful of dinner. One spoonful is a huge improvement over an extra plate full. On to Day 2...

The act of failing itself does not make me a failure. Only failing to begin again can do that.
