OMG!! I'm stuck in spin cycle with my eating!

Sunday, November 06, 2011

I was writing about how to avoid my major pitfalls, but forget that!! I seem to be unable to even manage day to day healthy eating and getting off the couch.
Went to the Y today and I'm up to 194!!

That's what being half-*@*ed gets me! I even thought I was doing better. How totally crazy and out of whack my inner food monitor must be. When I've been tracking my food I'm eating roughly twice as much as recommended for me. And getting almost none of the exercise.

So it's no great wonder that I'm still gaining. What is amazing is that I believe that I'm doing OK. Wow. Not OK. I'm NOT DOING OK. I guess my inner monitor is broken. And I don't know when to stop or when to say no or how much I'm gaining.

This sucks! I thought I was done a month ago when I started up with SP, but I am almost 10 lbs heavier now than when I started. ACTION is what I'm missing. Lord, help me.

    I just found your blog. I feel your pain, most of us on SP feel your pain. It takes a while to get going with this (it took me a month playing with SP before I decided to really DO what it was encouraging me to do.) I think the biggest thing for me was to get an idea of my crazy portion sizes. I needed to stop kidding myself by taking a "sort of smallish" serving of something with the full knowledge that I would be going back for more. Seconds are NOT my friends!

    If you aren't tracking your food, give it a try. SP makes it pretty darn easy (and it gets easier and faster the longer you do it). Then there are no overall surprises. And when you do get out of whack (who doesn't - I just ate a 800 calorie burger for lunch and that was WAY more than I really could handle according to my healthy eating plan today) you can do some stuff to try to balance it out a bit. Take an extra walk for 15 minutes, cut back those calories sensibly for your next meal, have a soup & a slice of bread for dinner...you get the idea. Anyway, good luck to you as you truly start this journey. It's not an easy one but the rewards are so great!
