A Confessional: My eating is out of control.

Sunday, August 08, 2010

Here is something about me that has always made it hard for me to lose weight. Food. I really don't understand why. Now, it's never been to the point I've gotten obese. The highest weight I've ever been is 177, and I felt like that was ridiculous. It only to took me to get just slightly overweight to realize that this wasn't the life I wanted to lead. My ultimate goal is to get to the 140s. If I can get under that, that would be great. The only thing that's holding me back is my eating habits. I can exercise everyday and stick with it, but it's so hard for me to not eat junk food. It's especially hard for me not to drink my calories, which I do a lot of. I don't drink sodas, but sometimes I can drink too much tea or juices that are high in sugar, and that's what gets me in trouble. It's very hard for me to stay on a healthy eating regimen because I'm a college student and sometimes I can't buy the most healthiest foods. Another thing I hate is drinking water. lol. I don't like to drink water unless it's while I'm working out. I think with the money I do have, I'm gonna go buy some crystal light packs to put in my water can at times, so I won't be so tempted to drink those sugary juices all the time. I really hate that I'm struggling with this eating thing, and there's so much more I could say right now, but I'll share it on another blog. I just don't wanna hold myself back from my potential. Me confessing this really makes me wanna do better, and I wanna try harder. Thanks for the support along the way, it's been really helpful. Can't wait to start Insanity later on today. I'm ready for the challenge. I think this is the longest I've ever stuck with a DVD program, so I'm excited to get ready to complete my fourth week. Hopefully this will be a better week for me eating wise as well. Much love.

    I'm really having a hard time at night eating myself. Crystal light drink packets really help me get all my water in. They make me crave more sugary things sometimes though eeek. Diet sodas are way worse though. You can do it! Good luck in your journey and I can't wait to read about your success.

    Sorry to hear your having difficult with your eating- track your food.. Mimic the structure of sparks meals, make food taste great and smell great. I weigh and measure my food to avoid eating too much and too little. Also keep within your calories sparks sets for you, use them like a speeder in a car. Slow day no activity low end of the range, heavy exercise day eat to the middle and top end..
    Also make your choices lean, the body can better burn off excess calories if they are not top heavy in sugar and fat..
