I am feeling kind bummed. Two days ago, I was 203, so down two pounds. Than, yesterday I did 25 minutes on the elliptical and 40 minutes of running. Basically, I burned alot of calories and stayed in my calorie range until I started to get a headache. I get headaches when I don't eat enough. It's a hard balance for me. So, I ate some chips. Not the best choice but fruit wouldn't cut it. In fact, I tried that and it wasn't making it go away.

This morning I was up to 205. So back to the beginning. Argh. Trying to not get down about it, I was tracking food today. I was at 1100 before supper. My range is 1300-1700 than my boyfriend wanted pizza. I wanted something quick. I thought I could control myself. Half a pizza and 1000 calories later, I have blown my calorie range, haven't worked out, stressed about work, and feeling fat.

In addition to that, I got two job rejections, one of which I thought I would have been a great fit for. At least, I have DigiCopy. It's a job offer contingent on my 60-day review. Today, it was rough at work. More stress. More ridiculousness.

Anyhow, just wanted to share with people that understand and maybe could cheer me on. I really do want to lose weight. I just have some obstacles to overcome to get there.

    What worked for me was to increase my nutrition. I try hard to eat lots of healthy food so that i don't have room for the junk. It's been working for about 4 years now and i was morbidly obese for many years before that.

    But please don't beat yourself up over one binge or one bad meal. It's that attitude and the fact that you just keep trying that will make the difference. I know you can do it if I can.

    Keep on Sparking. This is the best place to be.

    Chips and pizza are high salt and similar to eating Chinese where I know I can plan on an extra 3-5 lbs the next day. Change your thinking to find a healthy alternative as your go - to food.

    ((((HUGS)))) You do know that with all the work out you did perhaps that is water weight from the muscles repairing????

    Hang tight. You can do this.

    We all have our ups and downs. You are aware of what to do so keep that in mind. Best wishes to you.

    Hugs, you know what you need to do. First step is being aware of how you got sidetracked. You have already done that. Wishing you a better tomorrow . emoticon
