Decisions

Well, clearly there is no diet that is going to work for me. I really just need to follow what my body tells me and what I've always known. I need to move. I need to exercise. I really enjoy sporting things like volleyball etc. I don't feel like I'm working out when I do that. Also, I need to stop eating when I'm not hungry. I eat because it's 'time' to eat. Most of the time I'm not hungry and I usually don't even want to eat but because it's meal time I do anyway. I'm tired of listening to all the 'studies' that say things like, "eat 6 small meals a day", or that I can never get my body back the way it used to be. Or, that it's "much harder to lose weight after the age of 40".That's stupid. My body knows what I need and if I can't get my body back the way it used to be then why would I even bother trying? I determine what my body needs and what it can and can't do. Stupid people. Today I didn't eat until noon. I wasn't hungry before that. No, I don't have to eat breakfast to jump start my metabolism. I also had a portion about 1/4 of what I would normally eat. I don't need to feel bloated in order to feel like I'm done eating. I have put on almost 15 pounds this year. Yikes. I haven't gained wait in many years so this was startling. I'm done with this.

Culver's=Eeeekk!!


I love Culver's. Butter burgers, lots of cheese, gravy to dip the fries in...
Mmmm, I don't think it is something I will give up. I don't have it very often so it won't be a big deal. I'll just have to use my flex points for it. It's been very slow progress for me and this is the first week I have tracked in over a month. I have gained back 4 of the 5lbs I originally lost. I joined Thursday night meetings recently instead of Saturdays and I like it better. The facilitator is very involved. I like her. She got me to commit to tracking at least 5 days this week and asked if she could see my record at the next meeting. I really need accountability. Everyone there seems very interested in helping as well. Lots of good suggestions etc. I'm excited and remotivated!

So...

So my son had a football scrimmage this morning and I couldn't go to my weigh in...again. Also, not tracking for the couple of weeks, I gained 1 lb this week, according to my scale. So today I am back on for tracking. Here's to a new week.

Quick update

Crazy Busy!!  Last week I didn't make it to my WW meeting but I did weigh in and lost .4 lbs. Yay. This week I'm just trying to fit in as many summer activities as I can before school starts. Not really tracking points so far. Hmmmm...

Yay

I lost 1.8 lbs this week and finally met my first goal of losing 5 lbs. It has taken me 6 weeks to lose that but I have learned a lot in that time even if I didn't lose much. I have been more conscientious of what I eat. Even on the days I don't track, I am eating better. The other night we had a party with my husband clients etc. A pool party. Hot dogs, chips, cookies and snow cones. I ate one hot dog. One bag of chips and one cookie. Did I want more. You bet. But I didn't. My will power is getting stronger. I rarely mindlessly eat anymore. Also, the times when I really feel like pigging out, I am able to stop myself most of the time and think about what it is I am not confronting. So when my son acts up or I get in an argument with my hubby or whatever, I   go straight to the fridge but then think about things. Most of the time, I stop myself from eating and pray about it or talk it through with myself. Usually I am noticing my own faults in the situation and make a quick resolution to change it. So my habits are changing. I think the weight loss will get easier and easier. It's now been 6 weeks. That's pretty good for me. It really does help going to the weight watchers meetings. I am happy.

Remotivated

So I ended up walking 11/2 miles on Friday. So yay. But I made a mistake. I ate Panda Express for dinner on Friday night. Full of salt. I drank 6 glasses of water before bed trying to flush it out but I ended up gaining .4 lbs. this week. But I am back on board today. I have tracked perfectly and as of right now (9:15 p.m.) I still have 6 points left. Woohoo. I feel very satisfied but am hitting the later evening and now just want to snack...for no apparant reason. Think I'll go to bed early OR just play on the computer. I don't eat while on the computer... Yay for a new week.
