No weight change this week

Sunday, November 07, 2010

Okay today I hopped on the scale and found I hadn't lost any weight. This is okay because I realize that i was eating Nutella late at night. Since my husband has been gone I have been sneaking it in at night when the kids are asleep and I'm waiting to call him. I know this is a problem area of mine. When he's here I don't do this. I consciously have made the decision to eat it even though I know I shouldn't and I haven't measured it out, just eyeballed it and wrote down what I "thought" I ate in the tracker.

What saved me was the weights I added in the morning four of the five days and getting in cardiovascular exercise all days but one.

So I have said it and now I need to let it go and stop this behavior. I will either call my husband earlier and go to bed with the kids or attempt to control the behavior that is controlling me and sabotaging my efforts. So, to sum it up, I need to control myself and stop the pity party that takes place each night around 10:15 p.m.

This week is a new week and I will let what happened go!

    Congrats on not gaining any weight! It might help you deal with the time between when your kids go to bed and you make your call if you find something to distract you. It'll both make the time pass faster and hopefully keep you from snacking for comfort.

    It's true for me too, when I'm a little lonely waiting to call at night (usually it's my daughter) that's when I feel the most cravings. It's just comforting! I try to keep it under control and not give myself too much pressure. If you keep working out, you will gain more muscle and you will still lose weight. I don't think that's exactly SP advice, but too much pressure can make anyone binge. I just add weights to my walk the next day! emoticon

    You could also think of it as a NO GAIN.
    I always try to twist negatives into positives!

    I was telling my mom that the most powerful thing about this diet it that when I step on that scale I know exactly what I did to either loose some weight or stay the same or gain. Keep moving forward and hope your husband comes home soon.

    I know that you can do it. It is more a habit than anything and I do the same thing with peanut butter right out of the jar sometimes. My secret is not to buy peanut butter except in one serving little packets at the health food store. And now I consciously have something in my mind for those times when I will eat, dang it, no matter what. It can't be peanut butter cause I don't buy it anymore. So i'll make a yummy shake instead. It works. Not always, because no one is perfect, but often enough.
