Weekend control

Friday, April 26, 2013

Another great week with a weigh in 2lbs lighter YEAH!

However for the last three weeks I have reweighed myself on Monday and even after a very physically intensive weekend my weight has either gone up or at best stayed the same. (Gone up)

So being slow to reasoning as always I have a weekend problem.

Whats causing it.

1. Becasue I am exercising more (20 mile walks on Saturday) I self justify eating alot more because I need it. This may be true BUT NOT AS MUCH AS I AM EATING.

2. In the week I religiously record what i eat in a hand written Journal (i find it better than usingteh tracker) At the weekends I've stopped recording what i eat and just write in what I have done.

3. During the week I eat NO bread - I do allow myself bread at the weekend - this would be fine in MODERATION but last week end I counted that i had 14 slices of bread.

4. Snacking - My wonderful wife will shout to me in teh Graden Fancy a Cuppa - to which I always reply of course is teh Pope a catholic or some other pathetic quip - Now in the week I drink a lot of coffee - I know i shouldn't but hey one thing at a time - I need it - I would never have anything with it but at home at the weekends coffee without a cake or something wouldn't be right.

So the action plan - Bythe way who is sick of action plans - my industry is run by people writting action plans and taking no action. Sorry off message there LOL

1. Record everything i eat at the end of the day - NO EXCUSES.

2. Maximum bread allowance is 6 slices

3. DONT SNACK - no cake (well maybe one small one without any butter cream)

Have a great weekend everybody - I cant believe I am looking forward to a 20 - 25 mile walk tomorrow - I am so excited

    You are doing great! Only suggestion I would make for now is to write down what you eat BEFORE you eat it! That helps ward off MINDLESS eating; my enemy! I agree with LADY, forbidding something gives it too much space in my head. I try to find ways not to OVERindulge. For some things it means enjoying them away from home. Keep up the good choices!

    Congratulations! You have really been doing awesome. Don't forget that the muscle you are building also weighs more than the fat, so slow-downs in weight loss can actually be a good sign.
    Sounds like you've really gotten the exercise bit pinned down! The eating/tracking part you struggle with. I'm the opposite. But since I have the eating part under control, I hope a tiny bit of advice will help...
    Knowing you are trying to deny yourself something will only make you want it more. Perhaps try concentrating on getting your calories in range, in which you are willing to give up coffee and cake one day for having the bread or vice versa? (Just an example, that.) For instance, I know there are cookies in the house, and the family has divided them up so everyone gets their fair share. I know I'm not going to have to worry about losing my chance to eat cookies. That helps. Then, I only have cookies when they fit into my range for the day. That means eating a lighter breakfast and lunch today. It really does work mostly b/c I know I'm not denying myself or that I will lose my chance to have those carbs (which I struggle with also.)
    I hope that will help a little. You just have to keep plugging at it until you find what works for you! You're doing AWESOME!
