Wow...what a gain

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Well...I expected a weight gain, but not like this. I mean, I know I haven't walked for a few days, other than at work...but to gain 3 pounds???'s my own fault. I haven't been making the healthiest choices with my meals...and I haven't been walking. Plus it doesn't help that once again, I have my dear old "friend". And the doctors won't do anything about it. Which is going to make it more difficult to lose weight. I joined the BLC17, hoping this kicks my butt into high gear. I would be ok with my weight gain had I seen some...or ANY of my measurements go down...but they all stayed the same as they were a month ago. So until I start 1st shift in a few weeks, I am going to get up every morning and go walking for an hour and walk for another hour after I get off work at 10:30. Then once I start 1st shift, I am going to go for a walk when I get home and then again in the evening. I am going to walk a minimum of 2 hours every day...regardless of how I feel. And I really need to watch what I am eating. This seems to be my biggest downfall this week. Is there anyone out there who can check in with me once or twice a week or so?? Maybe if I know I have to report to someone how I am doing, I won't be as quick to sabotage myself and have as many emotional eating episodes. Well, for now, I am off to the store to get some healthy breakfast options in the house. Keep Sparkin everyone!!!

    emoticon Taryn! With Summer over, I am trying to get back to the routine of eating better, too :)

    I'm back to using the Nutrition tracker here on Spark every day. Do you use that, too? It makes a big difference for me if I know I have to enter it into the computer before I can eat it.

    You can do this!! And you know what you need to do to turn it around - I'm not worried about you!

    I see you have a taker for a check-in partner; remember that when you blog, we all are your check-in partners too!!

    Hang in there and don't beat yourself up! emoticon

    I guess our walk to Subway didn't do much for us? LOL! I feel your frustration. I know that I NEED to get out more; for my sanity and weight loss.

    Okay, I can be your check-in partner. How do you want to do it? We can check in by mobile, phone or however you wish. I know the feeling. My old friend's name is Aunt Flow and she just gave me a one pound gain this week amongst my loss-but I am not discouraged since my weigh in is tomorrow and I'm still down. I just would have been happier with that other pound that was gone the day before.

    It's easy to kick ourselves when we have a gain. Or even to push more upon ourselves to overcome the problem but remember that the eating and the working go hand in hand. You already know what got you, so stay on your routine. If it feels right to add another hour to the day, add the hour. Or if something that you can do at home would help, do that if you can't walk. Just don't beat yourself up- physically or mentally and no Negative Talk!

    I just read an article that said what WE say to ourselves can detemine the mode we work in. Good luck to you. If you still feel you need the Check-In Partner, I'm here to help.

    Don't be discouraged - your "friend" can really mess the measurements up. Keep up with your walking and your good eating and you'll see if change.

    Sometimes water retention can play tricks, you can really weigh yourself and in a few days discover the 3 pounds were all water.... emoticon
