Finished one week on diet

Sunday, January 21, 2007

I will be finishing the first week of diet today. I have had two falls off the wagon. They were not huge but it did effect my weight loss. Both times it was when I was feeling stressed and crawled back into bed with a bag of popcorn. I know I could have done something different to relieve the stress but I was cold, hungry, and tired. Most of the stress came from husband. I don't think he means to sabotage my diets but he does anyway. Every time I start one he will dump all his stress on me at a time at a time I am trying to put all my focus on the diet start. I usually end up quitting because I can no longer focus and need the comfort of food to deal with all the little fires around me.

    CONGRATS on completing week 1! I agree with the rest of these ladies... keep up the good work. When stressed, instead of reaching for foods you know that are wrong, ask yourself questions like "is this really going to help me feel better or will it just hinder my weight loss journey?" Keep foods that are healthy around the house and foods that aren't healthy don't buy! I know it's easier said than done. I also know how the stress can be from hubby. But try not to let him get cause you to give up on your new journey. This is for you! You can do it if you put your heart/mind into it!

    I wanted to add my congratulations on being on Spark one week -- and sticking to your food plan (popcorn is an okay snack, so I would not be too hard on myself if I was you).

    I know how it is to have stress from the hubby --- I reach for the extra food, too -- but now I am learning to turn towards Sparkpeople and believe in myself.

    By the way, exercise gets you warm, too! So why not start walking a little bit around the house -- and you will be overheated in no time ha ha.

    Hi there. I found your blog by way of "recent blogs." Congrats on making it through the first week!!! That's GREAT! Sounds like your fall offs weren't too terrible, and it's great that you realize them, and can hopefully make changes for the next week!! Good luck, and I can't wait to hear how it goes! -Amanda
