I'm here, sort of. I'm make good choices for a couple of days, but then it all goes to crap by the end of the week. Then Monday comes again and I feel all virtuous and the cycle continues. emoticon

Someday I'll figure out what the heck is going on with me.

Slinking back in here - I had problems getting into the site for awhile, so I figured, eh, screw it, I'll be fine without it. Nope. I've totally and completely backslid. I'm afraid to weigh myself as I think I'll be heavier than my starting weight.

Re-committing today - I haven't logged anything for weeks, but I put in my breakfast and lunch today (even though I didn't stick to the eating plan) :(

Vik: You can totally do it. I think you need some kind of bingeing escape route, like 100 calorie packs or something! (Says the girl who ate 3 of them on Saturday... ummm)

Are you an emotional eater, do you think? Maybe there are some kind of triggers that launch you into slipping up. (Just trying to think here).

For me, the failure area is exercise...

Aww, I know I can do it too.
My problem is I can't do it for very long, and it seems even the smallest slip up causes a gain.

A one step forward, 2 steps back kind of thing - it gets discouraging.



ETA: I DID do some arm exercises and crunches last night. Actually being able to FEEL my muscles is giving me a bit of inpiration.

Yeah, but you're kicking ass (what little ass you have left to kick, at least). You KNOW that you can do it (and do it well!)

i think i must have found my dieting happyplace this week or something, because i LEAPED off the wagon this past weekend and i feel pretty great about it. the double excuses of mom's birthday celebration and me reigning as the pms queen led me to both a buffet and an enormous quesadilla followed by many, many mini-eggs. and i just don't care. it was great, i enjoyed it, and now it's over. just get back on the wagon, leave the off-wagon days behind, and move on.

I sometimes wonder if I'm a Manic eater.

I will eat decent, not be hungry, and then go on insane food binges. Last night I had some pasta and a good sized ceaser salad.

Then a while later I stuffed my face with ice cream, licorice and cheez-its. (and no, I shouldn't have that food in my house in the first place.)


Anyway, I'm trying. I can do alright for a while, but then it just all goes to sh!t.

Yikes! Throw PMS and a snow storm together and you get lots of eating of comfort food and no exercise! I have refused to weigh myself because I don't want to have to move my ticker up. I figure if I get myself back on track this week then I'll weigh myself.

I fell off the wagon! for like....3 weeks! more even! It got so cold & snowy here & I didn't want to walk & all I wanted to do was eat cream based soups & melty cheese things & lay on my couch complaining about how cold it was & how I didn't feel like doing anything.

But I tried to snap out of it & today I *seem* to be down another pound. Basically, it's taken me 2 months to lose 4 pounds. All I know is that it's better than seeing the little needle creep closer & closer to the "270" mark.

blergh.

i need to get back on my diet horse, but the horse seems to have run away. i'm cranky and tired, and i don't want to go to the gym, but i do want to eat lots and lots of fatty, cheesy, creamy foods just before going to sleep for extended periods of time during the daylight hours.

i'm just complaining; things aren't that bad. i just went back to my old eating & drinking habits over the weekend and immediately gained a pound, which just shows me how permanent these changes have to be in order to work, and that's kind of intimidating. it just gets exhausting sometimes THINKING about everything i eat and do in terms of numbers all of the time.

BUT i'm going to the gym today even if all i do is half ass it on the treadmill for a half hour, and i'll do some pilates things when i get home, and then i'll go to bed. hopefully tomorrow will be an easier day.

This week has been bad... very, very bad. I thought the PMS pizza thing was the end of it but Tuesday night was Mexican food for Book Club and could not stop eating the chips and salsa. Then I've had a few really crappy days at work and found myself eating large bowls of Lucky Charms instead of my healthy planned dinner.

I'm afraid to weigh myself this week so I am skipping it until I'm back on track for a few days.

I feel like eating out last weekend has set me back. I was down .6 of a lb. on Monday but this week is tough because I feel like all the eating out expanded my stomach so I'm hungry again. I thought I ate really well on Monday but when I was realistic about the dressing which wasn't on the side, it really pushed me just about to my calorie limit.

Then yesterday came the pizza. There was thin crust cheese pizza for lunch and I had 6 pieces that were each about 2"x2" (with some smaller) which I can't help but obsess completely killed me because I was back at 144 this morning. I ate really low all day but I live in dread of the unknown amount of calories that that pizza added.

I am trying to stick with it and I'll keep going to the gym but this week just feels bad all around already.

I am so far off the wagon that it's left me in the dust and the wind has blown over the tracks.

But, if it takes until July for another wagon to pass, I'll get on it!!



(ha, that was so corny.)

I have no willpower when PMS strikes. Chocolate? Hell yes. Chips? Must. have. I've noticed that it's gotten worse in the past year or so as well. Carrots just don't cut it. :-/

I have yet to figure out a way to be reasonable about it. I try hard to keep stuff out of the house, but when the gf (a major junk food junkie) comes to stay the weekend, she ends up leaving stuff behind, like that Symphony bar with the toffee chips which was last night's downfall. I've got to get better about making sure she takes it all with her.

Yeah, I had a little battle with a pepperoni pizza this weekend and it won. I was a PMS'ing and I wanted grease and salt and I got it, way too much of it. But it's a new week, and I'm moving on.

Ugh, we went out for what started as Chinese and morphed into Mexican. I got shrimp fajitas which were just grilled shrimp, grilled green peppers, onions and tomatoes which really tasted like it didn't have much, if any, oil in it. I also only had one small tortilla, eating most of the fajita stuff sin tortilla and about 5 tortilla chips with salsa but I did have a big margarita. I am stuffed, I think I ate more at one time than I have in weeks. I think I'm just going to tell myself that I need the calories as I haven't had much of an appetite and I haven't been eating much (barely meeting my lower limit) this week...

Its really hard not to feel like you're really falling off the wagon after one big meal though.

I went to dim sum w/my parents. (I only ate 2 things, but still, there's practically nothing healthy at dim sum.)

Oh, and I had just gotten back from eating out at breakfast w/a friend (I got a tofu & veggie scramble, but still... it came w/a slice of white buttered toast, which I ate, and a huge pile of potatoes... I probably ate about 1/2 a cup, who knows how much extra oil was added to cook them in).

So, that was my eventful, caloric morning. I am still doing pretty decently, from what I could calculate, but it isn't the food I envisioned for the day.

I really noticed the 10 lbs I previously lost last night when I tried on all my shorts and noticed ones that previously were constricting fit comfortably and ones that I couldn't even do up were constricting and ones that I couldn't even pull on just wouldn't do up.

It kind of made me want to do good by me, especially with puerto rico so close, but... free food....

I wouldn't call one "bad" day/meal falling off the wagon.


Now, the two bad weeks I just had? That's falling off the wagon. And you can't worry about it, just hop back on and keep going.

ok, so I basically ate a whole extra meal today. I walked over to the lunch room to get the kettle for green tea and muttered "... my god".

Meeting left overs! Roast beef sandwiches with lettuce, cheese, cucumber, and tomatoes on a cheese bagel! Potato salad! Tuna salad wraps! Totally free! I already ate my lunch, and now I've eaten a second lunch which was way higher in calories.

How could I resist? HOW?? Free food is my ultimate weakness. I will probably even end up grabbing one of the sandwiches and taking it home for dinner.
