Will I perservere this time?

Sunday, January 16, 2011

I am out of control with my eating once again. What can I say? I love food. I don't have to be stressed or bored, I just love the taste of food. The more I try not to over eat the more I want to. I really, really want to lose this extra weight. I look terrible, I feel terrible but even as I sit here and grumble I still want to eat. I drank so much water today I feel like I am going to drown and yet I think I can still find room for something to munch on. I won't eat now because I need to go to bed but----if it were earlier--I would finish the bag of reduced fat ruffles I started on earlier.

I joined Curves in September and in November I began having a horrendous pain in the butt-literally! The pain has since moved into my calf and my feet as timgling, burning sensations. So my exercising has been pretty non-existent until just lately when I have pushed myself to do the bootcamp videos (ouch!). I have signed up for a Wii challenge and will start tomorrow.

I am going to try and begin logging all my food again tomorrow as well. Hopefully that will help keep me on track.

Will I perservere? Only time will tell!

    I would say that many if not most of us here on SP have done some pretty serious backsliding in the past. What I've got is today. Nothing else. I had a bad calorie and exercise day on Thursday, but it's done, it's gone, and there's no way to change that. But TODAY I can eat right and get enough exercise. It's up to me.

    I've have the wandering munchies too - the problem with eating through six different things in the fridge to find whatever it is I wanted in the first place. My suggestions - 1)Get rid of all the junk! If you don't have it you can't eat it. 2)Get an accountability partner, preferably one who can talk to you every day. Even better, someone you can call when the cravings strike.

    If you treat the desire to overeat and eat junk like an addiction, then it's treatable, but it's also something you have to fight every single day. That's how I'm working my way down. "Yes, I know I crave chocolate ice cream, but that's just my addiction talking."

    Hang in there; we're with you!

    Do, or do not, there is no try. I know....all we can do is try. You can do this. Have confidence in yourself. I began saying I was "doing" things long before I actually did it. I thought if I spoke in positive terms, my mind would be fooled into doing what I want. I told people "I am eating more fruits and veggies," while in reality, this has yet to happen as it should. But I feel like when I say "I'm going to try to eat more fruits and veggies" then I'm giving myself room to mess up. I dunno...those are my thoughts. I'm no expert. But the point of all my rambling ('s late...I'm tired) is that you can DEFINITELY do this. Take small steps, stay focused, and use us (your SP friends) when you need us. Use the panic button. Use your blog. We are here for you.
