Weight Loss Vases and Cravings...

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

So I'm way late on the weight loss vases, but better late than never right? To be quite honest with you I'm a pretty lazy person (it's a wonder I'm overweight huh? *giggles*;) ), so I did a trial run with vases I had around the house to see if I would actually continue to move the marbles. I know, how sad is that? But I wasn't sure if it was something I thought was great for the moment and would be over in a week. So I took the plunge today and actually bought some stickers and the vases. I already had the little purple and pink hearts which I love, today I get big clear ones to represent the 10 pound marks and and the beautiful huge pink one for goal. Whoever had the idea to get a special gem for your goal is a genius btw. :)

So there we have it, 22 pounds down from my highest, and 70 pounds to get to 180. I really think I'd feel great at 180, but I am also torn because I know this is still in the overweight BMI. I was watching Weight Of The Nation last night per a recommendation from a fellow sparkie, and physically seeing how being in that category can affect so many things health wise it really made me rethink it. For my height, the very highest end of the healthy BMI would be 160 pounds, but I just don't know if that is for me. I guess we'll see. I think I should focus on getting out of the 200's before I burden myself with such decisions. ;)

And Cravings, are really testing my nerves, but I managed to satisfy a craving with not too many calories. Jack In The Box has a new Jr. Jack, which I added the cheese to, however I did not eat the bun or any sauce, just the patty, cheese, onion, pickle and tomato, along with their value fry. I've come a long way since a double cheeseburger, large fries, and tacos on the side etc etc. It's funny because the thing I was craving as far as the burger is concerned was the actual patty, so why throw all those calories away for the bun and sauces? So silly.

Hope everyone is having a great week! :D emoticon

    I think I'd break my jars if I tried that right now (I'm back and forth on this stupid plateau and I can't imagine it'd feel good to move a marble and then move it back day in and day out...). Looks cool though, and I hope it keeps you motivated (and away from cravings! ;) )!

    I made those a few weeks ago, moved them once, stopped haha. Good thing I got the supplies @ the dollar store so I didn't feel so bad. I think it's because I bought the jars too big and they look weird. I Like yours!

    Those jars are awesome! Wouldn't last an hour in my house with my kitties, but visual prompters are always an awesome choice!

    I also have some goal jars like these and didn't do very good about moving them. I didn't get any special ones for goal though and maybe I should. I drew these goal meters (my profile pic). I really like them. Each one represents 10 pounds. I think you did awesome to realize the exact thing you were craving as opposed to saying you were craving Jack in the box in general. WAY TO GO!!!
