I went out with my Dad for his birthday last night. He wanted a banana milkshake from Red Robin, so that's where we went for dinner. I should have had the Fiesta Pollo Salad, which I've made SBD-friendly there previously. But no. I kept eyeing the grilled turkey burger and french fries and caved. I justified it, thinking it would be better than a regular burger. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Yeah, I just read the nutritional value online. Bad, Rachel, BAAAADDDD!!!!

At least I didn't order a banana milkshake myself, right?

Yesterday was a *BAD* day all together. I still am not feeling well and was eating out of emotion. I just wanted comfort unhealthy foods. I not only ate unhealthy foods, I ate unhealthy amounts of those foods!

Today, however, is a new day and I will strive to not have anymore yesterdays!

Add beans to the diet - will give you the extra carbs you need. The eggs are great but ya needed a bit more (try scrambled eggs with black beans!).

Ok so I wasn't feeling too well today, I was working out and just started to feel lightheaded and shaky like I needed to eat something. So I went home made some eggs but still felt like I need something else, so I had some bread! 3 pieces! with some butter (but it was Smart balance light) I am almost done with phase 1 and doing pretty well so I am not letting it get me down, I was full and didnt even really eat dinner tonight, its weird I havent really craved bread the past couple weeks, but I totally felt like I needed it today, it was whole grain and flourless, sprout bread so not such a bad cheat...ok I have confessed lol!

Apples ironically can be dicey for some folks. It just may be a fruit that you can't eat until well established. The easiest and first fruits suggested are berries. Hang in there - it truly is a process and if you keep the fact that it is a lifestyle way of eating in your mind, it will make it a touch easier.

Yesterday's fruit was apple with peanut butter (protein). Maybe it's just apples.

Every time I have eaten the apple, I lose my resolve toward the end of the day.

Sorry lol I didn't tell you every day that I ate the apple.

Um no offense but FRUIT does not sound like your trigger - on the other hand starch sure in the heck sounds like it!

I definitely would do a couple days of phase 1 and get yourself back on track. Look at your diet - why do you think fruit was the trigger (ie which fruit and did you have protein with the fruit).

LOG YOUR FOOD - clearly your tracker doesn't indicate your food intake. If you can't figure out the calories, put a note in there. It helps give us an idea of what is going on.

You haven't failed anything because you know why - this is a LIFESTYLE way of eating. You are learning how to do just that. emoticon

I had 4 donuts at the apple orchard yesterday. and 2 handfuls of goldfish crackers.

I haven't exercised in a week.

I am scared of phase 2. I can't do it right. I wanna go back to Phase 1 forever. The cravings don't stop when I add in the fruit. Maybe now that I have lost some weight, weight watchers would help.

I am feeling like a failure and at the same time, so happy to be out of the 160s, and considering myself successful for that. I hope I didn't screw it up too bad...

yeah beets aren't allowed due to the high glycemic (so it is one of those rare foods).Bleu cheese can be okay if it is the low fat version.

Too much white wine with Thai noodles.... next day needed something good to soak it up- Mc Donalds fries always do the trick- But hey I got a small. Then off to a Wedding- but the good news I have never been to a wedding that had so little food so I am glad I had those fries. But yet again too much wine... Love my wine emoticon

Today wasn't too bad... Had another opportunity for wine- what a weekend... but I passed it up for some good old Poland Spring. I do have work tomorrow.

I have been pretty good. I have decided phase 1 is too restrictive to a busy mom taking care of 3 toddlers so I have relaxed a little and am still losing.

Last night I ate potato chips and asiago& artichoke dip though...so yummy but I didn't moderate myself well!

Company dinner last night was a wine tasting several course meal. Clearly showed on the scale this morning. Must behave now for a couple days...lol!

Froggy the sabotage began a few months ago when the weight loss starting slowing...making me frustrated and I gained back 11 lbs. It was heartbreaking. I am still struggling to eliminate these habits. My birthday has been the excuse lately but it was a week ago now and all gifts of dinner have been received so I have no more excuses. I am terrible because I know EXACTLY what I am doing wrong and I don't stop myself. Its no mystery to me why I am gaining/not losing. I suffer from depression and generally find it easy to justify bad habits when I am in that "mode"

Tawnia, you are very aware of what you shouldn't be doing. Your postings indicate that you detect sabotage to your program happening often...hahaha...BUT, I see your tracker and you have seemingly been able to balance those sabotages with good choices because you have lost lots of weight. Keep it up and you will reach your target.

The one thing a person will remember is how you treated 'em.

Kierae, I do feel for you....hahahaha..You sound like a very good social coordinator...When relatives come to my home, I show them the fridge and the pantry and they know they are on their own. I'm not a great cook so no one really pressures me to prepare a meal.....hahahaha...I'll drink one with you. emoticon Oh, who's Abe?

I have had to cook 3 meals every day since my sis in law has come in. I am exhausted playing social coordinator - I swear it is like herding cats between the mister and her (and Abe which my hubby has insisted on taking with us everywhere)...lol. I am sitting here having a stiff drink. What day is this...oh yeah...couple more days! emoticon

I had a few shots last night and many long island ice teas at a friends going away party. It was the first night i've had alcoholc in 3 weeks and my effen black cherry w/ diet coke strangely tasted too sweet for me. After one effen the table started drinking long islands and they were good. I never really got a buzz going so i kept drinking alot. Aside from thinking about my friend leaving all night, I also kept thinking about how strange old familiar things were tasting and how I should keep moving around and dancing in order to burn some of the calories I was drinking. before I went out last night I made a few enchilada verdes, so that was 3 tortillas I shoudn't have had. I also had a small rainbow ice cream cone today. No excuses, but it's the end of summer and I won't be thinking about ice cream as much as the weather gets colder. I'm eatting my veggies tonight and biked a lot today to make up for my bad behavior.

Well I was trying really hard but last night my friends took me out for dinner for my birthday....to a PUB. Yeah they are skinny they don't get it! LOL So they bought me a strawberry margarita before I could protest but I sipped it and water all night so I only had the 1. I ordered stuffed mushrooms and a grilled chicken caesar salad (seriously the healthiest things on the menu!!!) and ate 1/2 of both (but all the grilled chicken)...but then I caved and ate the garlic bread that came with it (my weakness). I guess I didn't do that bad considering but this is definitely now how I wanted phase 1 to be LOL I am back on track this morning though with a turkey stack and a salad for breakfast!

WOW!! A Baconator and fries!! That's my idea of cheating. I'm jealous. LOL.

I've only had a Baconator once and I had them hold the mayo to make it "healthy". ROFLMBO!!! At my age a Baconator is almost lethal.

Today I was bad and skipped lunch so we each had a third of a California Kitchen Sicilian Pizza. Baaaaddddd!!!!!

I snuck the last piece of banana bread last night even though it was supposed to be my first day of phase 1 (I needed a quick blood sugar booster since I had barely eaten!). Its gone though now and all the temptations are out of the house~!

Eeeekkk! On Monday I wanted a milkshake so I had a banana milkshake from Sonic. Egads at the calories! But man alive was it good. And then last night, after moving more stuff out of my apartment, my stepdad, Mom and me all caved and got pizza. I did request a thin crust Veggie lovers, but I still ate three pieces before I even stopped to realize what I was doing. It was good, though, and it hit the spot. Hey - at least I was lifting boxes and furniture and drinking water...right? emoticon

I had a diet coke sunday and one today, I also had a hot fudge sundae with peanuts from mcdonalds today before my workout. I only ate half of the hot fudge sundae (of course I ate til the fudge was gone..heehee) The sundae helped me go to the gym (there weren't any machines available when i went before)and made me feel guilty enough to start some strength training in addition to my 30mins on elliptical. Still feel guilty though.

It was the start of college football that did me in (not to mention there's just been a lot of stressful stuff going on lately). I ate chicken wings, cheesecake, and drank entirely too much wine. Oh, and there were the chips and salsa at my fav restaurant. emoticon emoticon

LOL Yeah I don't buy bad stuff anymore either...but my DH did when we went camping! Its gone now but too much sugar this weekend have me in full-blown sugar/carb craving mode - not good. I am going to do the best I can for the next 3 days and then write out a meal plan for the following 2 weeks! I think I need 2 weeks of phase 1 again....sugar is all I can think about and I am totally salt-bloated UGH.

I think we might be able to work something out. I have lots of healthy veggies and fruits as we have a huge garden and I went to the Farmer's Market today to pick up what we don't grow but we have very little bad stuff. I don't buy bad stuff any more and the tiny bit of bad stuff I have is leftover from before we started SB. I ration it out. I can't believe how bad my diet was before. I must have been in denial. LOL.

I made a "healthy" version of biscotti from Ellie Kreiger's cookbook and planned for the snack but it still had a little sugar in it. I also made her triple chocolate cookies which I also sampled but those I got out of the house at the end of the party!

I was starving on Sunday while doing my grocery shopping! On the way home I had to open up a New box of Vegetable Wheat Thin crakers and try them out! Oh, they are soooo good and my hand couldn't stop going into the box. Not sure how many went in my mouth, but this was definetly a fall back in my way of thinking. emoticon

Yesterday was my sister's birthday. I am exactly two years and two weeks older. We did a whirl-wind trip to the big city to celebrate with her. Mom ordered a gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free cake for her from a special bakery -- she has a lot of food sensitivities -- and I was SO AMAZED at how good it tasted that I even had half a piece for seconds.

Since we have just survived another holiday weekend and the boards were pretty quiet, I would imagine many of us dealt with that last summer social gathering which of course includes FOOD! This inspired me to start (and sticky) a confessional thread. Heck we all cheat at one point or another. Sometimes it is rare...sometimes it is daily. It is good to spew and move forward!

So what sin have you committed this week?
