Crap! It is fat!

Monday, December 27, 2010

I put on some pants that I had not worn in a while, they are tight. I could wear them but I could definitely feel the difference, they were almost loose when I wore them a month ago. I'm exercising and drinking my water, but I think this holiday season has been rough on the total calorie intake. I'm doing the best I can but I guess I'll have to get past this and go back to the 1300 - 1400 calories a day thing.

The thing is I'm doing tons of exercise, Jillian Michaels and Leslie Sansone. I really have not fallen off the wagon or back into bad habits. Just too many desserts and sweets around, plus more big meals than I would normally eat.

It is a little depressing, I just wonder how big I would be if I weren't watching everything I eat and exercising? It feels like my body had decided this is the end of the famine and wants to pack on all the fat it can find. I really do kind of feel like I am swelling up by the second, it's not a good feeling and I don't like it at all!

Maybe when January gets here and I can get back to my regular schedule and eating habits I will be able to get this under control, but I'm worried because I haven't really been able to lose any weight in the past year, just holding steady most of the time. But now I really do need to lose about 10 pounds (again). sigh.

    I hear ya sister!

    Maintenance is so hard,'s got to be worth it, right?

    Maybe set up non-weight goals for motivation, like eating clean 10 days in a row or exercising consistently. Remember to reward yourself (with non-food things!). :)

    Hang in there, there is light after the holidays!

    I was on a pretty good streak and am getting right back to it. Remember that stress makes the body hold onto weight and this can be a stressful time up to Christmas. You are sticking to everything, just get back to the food piece for a while. And yes, "Maintenance Stinks" (read your previous blog too). I think, though, that maintenance separates the successful from the ones still trying to get it right. I was SO CLOSE to goal, I think I even was where you're at, not quite at goal but the body is saying "this is your low weight". The difference between us is that you continued on and I let a few old habits come back into play. Rats! So hang onto Maintenance, my friend. Try to embrace the fact that YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES, YOU WILL DO WHAT IT TAKES! Proud of you, Barbara!

    Everyone says things will get easier, I sure do hope so. This weight business is some of the hardest stuff I have ever had to conquor in my life and I will never give up or quit. Every bit of food that we put into our mouths counts. It is self control and discipline is what makes all the difference in the world we can do it only through those two good old stand bys. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I keep under eating and so, no weight loss.

    We are on exactly the same page in the book of our life, apparently!

    Things will be easier after the holidays. I've been over my calories for the past couple of days. I'm not gaining, but I'm not losing, either. I think the strength training is what's saving me!

    Things will settle back down. Try not to focus on the gain, focus on what you have accomplished, stress adds to weight gain.
