Not giving up!

Monday, March 04, 2013

So I have been slacking the past few days,and I have not been focusing on my goals. I was going to (last week) start logging in my foods and trying to work out at least 2x a week(hoping to work towards 4x) Well none of that happened!!

I have been going strong for about 3 wks, and lost some weight,and people were noticing,I could see it in the mirror and on the scale! This is always when it happens for me! I say "well I can have a treat" that turns into a week treating fest!! I had lots of cookies,my fav ice cream(rocky road) and not the serving size,i prob doubled that! I was not eating breakfast every morning( and i feel that was one of my major accomplishments,in loosing) So normally I would say "screw it Laura you are never going to beat this,stop trying...you have 50 lbs to loose,its not going to happen...so just enjoy your good yummy foods" But I am not going to say that!!!! I have come to far,and I know better! This is something that i just have to keep pushing for,and its never going to end,this is my lifestyle now,I will not go back to the way it was before. Like i keep saying in all of my blogs,sure I will have bad days or even wks,but I will not give up!

On a good note,I got on the scale today,and I did not gain anything back yet!! I hope i will not! And my tax refund came in over the weekend,so I got some yoga pants and some good walking trainer shoes!!

I am out of healthy foods in my house,I cant wait to go shopping :) I am not happy of how I allowed my self to eat last week and over the weekend,and not going through my goals,however I am glad that I am determined still...and that I am not going to quit!! emoticon

    The problem was probably the fact that you tried to stop all the junk food cold turkey. It's not the foods that are bad, it's our misuse of the foods.

    You should buy small amounts of some things, like a single serving bag of chips or cookies. I've even read that some people go to the party store and buy just one or two Hershey's kisses. If you have small amounts in the house, you can't 'pig out' on them...but you also don't feel deprived.

    Good luck with your NEW start!

    MAMACHAE74 You know that is exactly what I did!! I went with out sugar As much as I could for 3 wks,and the first 2 were ok,the third was rough!! one day I was really depressed and craving and actually cried over wanting sweets!! It is such an addiction for me. And I was like you,sweets and chips and breads were my normal foods,never fruits or veggies! So it is hard and I am adjusting slowly. I wish after my three wks I would of learned!! Im so glad you are doing well with it!

    hey, don't beat yourself up, it is very difficult to stop the bad habits. You just have to think about everything that you eat and why you are eating it. It took me 4 months or so before I was able to say enough is enough and just cut the junk out. I had to force myself to go without for 3 weeks straight, and the first couple of days it was so hard. Then as the days went by, it became easier. I give into my cravings every now and then, but in moderation. I think about how tired it will make me and how hard it will be for me to get up and exercise and I just don't go overboard like I used to. Donuts, cakes, cookies, chips used to be a staple in my diet with little to no veggies. So, you can do it and the fact that you are determined keeps you on the right track. Good luck! You can do it:)

    Sounds like a bit of sabataging going on. Get to the root of it by journaling about it this was when it shows its ugly head again it wont allow you to undo all your hard work. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
