Why cant I stop?

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

It seems no matter how determined I am to losing wight ( or maybe I should say how determined I think I am), I keep sabbatoge myself. I keep over eating on the unhealthy things and undereating on the good things ( fruits and veggies). It is girl scout cookie time around here and in 2 work days I managed to eat a whole box of cookies and 1/3 of a nother. Why why oh why must I do this. I have spells of working out several days in a row then I stop. Fastfood breakfast seems to be my morning routine most work days as well as fast food lunch. I will take my lunch to work, but then decide that my morning was crazy and hectic and that I need " fattening" food to get through the rest of the day and that " healthy" lunch in the fridge just won't cut it. Eating my lunch I bring sure will help my pant size get smaller and my wallet to get bigger but it dosen't work.
I just need to buckel down, get serious about what I eat or I know I won't be around to have a family. I just don't know what will eventually give me that wake up moment. My husband and I have agreed we will not start a family until I lose weight, but even that dosen't seem to work emoticon

    I'm in the same boat. I work out like a fiend and then eat ice cream for a snack. It's frustrating but I'm not quitting and I know you won't either.

    I agree with GRANDEFILLE to try to do one thing at a time. When that becomes a habit try one more change. Pretty soon you'll have it all under control!

    I was TOTALLY there. You know what helped me? I left my money at home. I couldn't buy fast food or give money to the Girl Scouts without going home first and by then I'd have talked some sense into myself usually.

    You can do this. It just takes time to reform good habits and get rid of the old ones.

    Keep working at it!

    Maybe you are tackling to much at the same time. Start by taking only one goal and do it for a week at least then move to take on a second one. Your self-confidence will rise with each victory. the other one important thing : this is not an all or nothing. You can't be perfect you are not perfect. Forgive yourself and move on. like she says.

    find a buddy ... someone you will be brutaly honest with and who will brutaly be honest with you. I have and it keeps me honest.

    And you do have to find what makes you eat. start by writing down how you feel, what you were doing when you start snacking like that.. you may find things that way.

    Good luck and do not hesitate to ask for help

    I've been there and I am fighting to get out. Explore the reasons behind the eating (physiological, medication, emotional), then figure out a game plan to lose the weight.
