Just Being Honest...

Monday, November 09, 2015


1. I have avoided the scale. I have an idea that my weight still hovers around 150, but I'm terrified to find out if it's worse.

2. I have been making every excuse in the book not to exercise: Too tired, not enough time, TKD classes are just focused on tournament prep, my kid's playing video games so I can't watch TV while I run... (Man, when I list them, they just sound so whiny...)

3. I have had a love affair with Halloween candy. Enough said.

I feel like this is such a pattern with me: Doing great! Doing terrible... Got in my fitness! Binge ate last night...

Why the highs and lows? Why can't I find the middle ground?

I started tracking again today. I now that will help, especially if I track BEFORE eating. One day at a time. Sigh...

    Well done for posting on your blog - it's good to hear from you even though your news isn't as positive as you'd like to be able to report.

    I can really identify with what you wrote - the effort you put in, the hard-won successes that are all too easily eclipsed by lapses and disappointments.

    All I can say is: DON'T GIVE UP!

    I'm struggling too. Let's struggle on together and let's be Determined to make healthy positive little changes towards achieving our goals. At long last I seem to be improving the time at which I go to bed. Small step but it will help.

    Let me know if /how I can help.

    Getting healthy is a process. I know -- I've been wrestling with this for nearly my whole life. Our bodies want things that aren't necessarily good for us -- if only I'd crave cauliflower instead of chips!!

    Think about where you are and how much you've learned since your started your journey. Highs & lows are gonna come. It's what you learn from each that helps you keep making progress.

    Thought for the day -- even falling flat on your face is forward progress!

    Cheering you on!!!

    You are so speaking to the cyclical exerciser that is moi!!! Focus on the nutrition like you are planning, the exercise will come always does!! You have a pattern and that is OK - embrace that part of you. And maybe, instead of the usual exercise, you try the opposite and just do 10 minutes here and there to perk you up...better than nothing is what I say, even if it's not your norm.

    Do a weigh-in in a few days if you aren't up for it - a few days of tracking and water does a body good! You just might surprise yourself with how bad it isn't!

    Emotions sometimes play a big part in our eating. Hang in there. You will make it.

    It took me awhile to get on the scale too. But if I didn't know where I was I wouldn't know how far I've come. Good luck
