Need support!

Thursday, October 03, 2013

I feel like I keep trying and getting discouraged and going back to old habits because they are easy.

I need help. This is my official plead for someone, anyone who reads this to be my accountability buddy. I just need someone going through the same journey to get healthy.

I think my main problem is that I try to get healthy to be skinny, so as of right now I'm not tracking my weight anymore. I'm going to go by how I feel, track what I eat, and exercise.

THis next attempts will start with small steps. This weeks goals are:
1. exercise everyday for 15 min
2. track all of my food and then analyze my typical eating habits and where I struggle.

    I also struggle with motivation. I use to like to go to the gym but I stopped doing that. I use to work out for an hour there, but what I want to do now is go for walks but perhaps for only 30minutes a day or do exercises inside for awhile. I use to track my food but that got overwhelming after awhile. However, what I do try to do is measure the foods I eat. I do not count calories either. I just recently learned to give up after dinner snacking and snacking while in the bed sleeping. As for weighing myself, I just weigh myself once a week at my weight loss support group. I also analyzed my eating habits and found out where I was struggling the most. when I get to feeling like I want to snack at night, I just grab an ice cube from the freezer and suck on that instead. emoticon

    Small steps are good. I'm struggling with getting back into weight-loss mode, as I've been on a plateau for a couple of months now. I began strength-training a couple of months ago (transitioning from mostly aerobic-type to more weights) and I've been eating back my exercise calories. That, plus the usual dynamics of underestimating my food intake and over-estimating my exercise, have resulted in no weight loss. My small step for this week is to eat more calories at breakfast and less at noon, plus varying my choices in food.
