Today I turn 37...

Monday, June 13, 2011

and I don't know what to think about it.

I am starting to think that I have an "overeating" disorder....every morning starts out great...great breakfast (usually oatmeal with nuts and yogurt or a shake that's high in protein) and i even can get a good morning snack in...but by lunchtime and beyond I lose all control!!

I will eat anything I can get my hands krispie treats I origionally made for my son (who was sick today so he wasn't eating anything) then I made myself a fantastic supper (b/c my husband couldn't be bothered to have supper with me...though he was thoughtful enough to pick food off of my plate....and yes, I'm being sarcastic) of chicken, asparagus and a salad...then I proceeded to dive into a bag of chips and then chocolate cookies....I am STUFFED...needless to say I weighed myself yesterday...193 but after today I won't be suprised if I added 2+ lbs:(

I really don't know what's going dr. has suggested I go see a Nutritionalist to see what is up....I know it's all mental for me....I KNOW how to eat well and that for my body type I need to encorporate MORE exercise into my daily life and the weight will just sail off..
I make GREAT plans to lose weight...complete with meal plan and exercise schedule...but I just can't stick to it and once the "day" comes to start...I just push it off to the next day.

If anyone is reading this and has ANY thoughts or suggestions...PLEASE I am open to it all!! (just don't be mean is the only thing I ask)

    First off: HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I hope you had a chance to enjoy the day.

    Your story sounds so like mine. I decided to try the Slow-Carb diet from 4-Hour Body by Tim Ferris. It's not for everyone but it seems to be working for me (slower than it says in the book, but working none-the-less).

    The big thing for me is cheat day. By allowing myself one day a week to have whatever I want (and I mean WHATEVER) without the guilt, it has changed my whole outlook on food, guilt and temptation. Now if something is presented to me during the week, I say no thank you, and make a mental log to enjoy it on my cheat day. Yes, it means my weight is going to go up the day after cheat day, but it has consistently gone down from week to week since I started the plan.
