I'm trying

Saturday, January 05, 2008

Seriously are you supposed to stick to a diet when everyone around you is eating??? At work there is bags of candy on the table. You know the feeling, one piece won't hurt anything. HA! One piece turns into 2, then 3! UGH! And at home, I'm trying to eat low fat, but the fridge is full of rice and beans. I've been doing really well on the soda thing. I have had a few diet sodas, but I was a ridiculous Pepsi drinker, so I figure this is an improvement. Hmmm maybe that's my problem. I am trying to "improve" and not "conquer".

Guess I'm not doing too bad. Though I've been trying not to stand on the scale (anyone know where I can get a lock for that thing? LOL) I seem to have dropped a few pounds this week. Granted, I know that is not true weight, only less bloating, but hey I feel a little lighter. It's nice to know feel bloated all the time!

I'm not getting discouraged though. I am still determined that this is going to work. Maybe I'm killing myself before I even start, but I am taking the approach that if I am TOO strict that I'll fail. Yeah, that does sound like I'm falling behind the eight ball in this diet thing. Well, guess we'll see. I'm not taking my true weight until Wed (a week from my start). Truth will be told then.

    Not gonna right much cause your lasr two comments sum up what I was going to say. It's gonna take us a while and we have to start slow. I cant help not stepping on the scale either, i dropped 1 pd. whoo hoo- lol bloating too.. Last night I was craving sweets. REALLY BAD Sebastian came to me and said mommy "Lets share some grapes" I am not the one to be snacking on fruits, let me tell you they were awesome. and satisfied the sweet tooth! It's been almost a week, your doing great!!!

    I know what you mean, the kids and I went grocery shopping yesterday.. It's hard and then I baked today cause Aubrey loved the jam thumbprint cookies and I ate three, then as I was chewing began to feel really bad.. I was thinking 'What am I doing to myself?' So I put half the cookie back and chewed what I had in my mouth and am going to get on my bike.. It's more about discipline right now instead of determination.. You need discipline to control yourself then one you have you see your goal and they both will get you there..

    I'll be waiting to see Wednesday what your outcome is.. Don't worry if it's not much, it will get better. Honey this is just the first week.. We didn't get this way overnight, we aren't about to get the way we want to be overnight either.. *HUGS*

    It is true! If you begin to hard and are too strict you will fail. Make your changes small and span each over a weeks time before you intorduce another change. You can do this, just do it realistically. I had to keep telling myself -0 and still do - that I did not gain all this weight over a three month period - so losing it for good will take me longer than that as well. You can do this - you know what is best for you and what works best - if you need to initially allow yourself an indulgence a day - do it - then start cutting it back one day per week - its really about you. your plan your program - you can make this work!
