I can't do it

Thursday, June 06, 2013

I can't bring myself to step on the scale today. Today is my weigh in and I am *that* petrified to have it show me that I am back up over 250. I think that would be too much for me to take today.

It came so easy the first few weeks. Why did it get so hard all of a sudden? I was hoping it would stay easy the whole time. Who was I kidding?

Goal for upcoming week...stay on track!! Stay active!! Hide the bad food. Restock the good food.

What are some of your go to snacks?

    emoticon It's ok to have off weeks. It isn't easy when everyone in you house isn't on the same train as you either. You have someone who loves his chips and dip and I have someone who thinks it's normal to go out and buy 10 packages of cookies at once. Who cares if you stumble? Do you tell your son not to continue using the potty anymore because he peed his pants? No. That would be silly. Your frustration is real but know you are not alone. You are my sister and I love you. emoticon We CAN do this. I'm so glad you blogged today because I know these responses are going to give you a lift. and remember, the bad food is not YOUR food. it belongs to someone else and it tastes really bad too. lol emoticon

    Boy..I know what you saying how hard it can get..I was down to 245..and since the first of the year..I have yo yoed all over the place..Last weigh in was 259..Yikes..!! Today I am watching what I eat..My biggest problem has been..when I have goodies in the house I search them out and eat..If I have fresh fruits and air popped pop corn available to grab I am good. why do I have the sugary stuff around..because I buy it..its that simple..I buy it to eat..and I do. I have cut down on on this distructive behavior..but this weight loss is HARD..Breaking those old habits and gaining new healthier habits. I used to weigh 340 lbs. It has taken me years to get down.
    One thing I have noticed..if I exercise I make better choices and seem to be not craving so often. The exercise choice for me..biking..I love riding outside ..or on my recumbent bike..Its something I can do and feel good about..What's your choice?
    Too if I weigh each day and record it on a calender that is up in the bathroom..I can be mindful of what I need to do that day..Sharlene

    The scale is just a tool. Don't let it make you feel any different. It is just a way to track our progress. If you are not seeing the results you want, it may be a sign that you need to readjust some things. Tracking food, drinking water, adding fitness minutes... it will add up. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    My favorite snacks are sliced apple with 2 tbsp natural peanut butter, string cheese, sliced tomato and basil leaves and a tsp of olive oil (also called cheater's caprese salad), one cup of nonfat Greek yogurt and one cup fresh blueberries, banana with yogurt or peanut butter, one cup baby carrots with 2 tbsp hummus, celery sticks with peanut butter. I always make sure my snacks have protein. I stay full longer. emoticon

    The Spark Solution book has a lot of great snack and meal ideas. I am currently making recipes from that book. I am full, satisfied, and am not having food cravings. emoticon emoticon
