I love the taste of coffee so I will just switch over to Decaf.

Two pots of coffee!!! Wowzers lady! That's a lot of coffee! Maybe just cut back? Coffee does have trace carbs in it. Plus if you add any splenda or cream? (I think decaf might have a few more trace carbs). It's really not that significant unless of course you're adding something to it. With all that fluid, you are probably like me, in the bathroom every 20 minutes lol.

Finally got the "go ahead" from the doctor to begin a light exercise program - NO LIFTING!

SO...... Beginning Monday I am going to do the "Couch to 5K" Program - My goal will be to enter and FINISH a 5K Charity event in the Fall.

I have NEVER been a runner (walker, yes) so this will be a BIG challange for me.

I have my check list: IPhone C25K App, Better shoes (correctly fitted), a MUCH better BRA (don't want an earthquakes in the Southeastern part of the US ) and friends to support and harrass me..........

oh......and cut back on the coffee

got it............

Sharon

Ok, I feel pathetic. I made my husband hide the cookies he made last night. Easy to guess, isn't it? This afternoon, I found them and ate enough of them that I feel sick. Now I have to go all thru ketosis, more cravings and everything all over again. Not to mention that I feel like an immature, ridiculous, overweight, most definitely middle-aged woman. Is there anything worse?

Trying to salvage something here.
1) Even though my appetite is nil, I should never go down too low in fat/calories. It leads to feelings of either deprivation or sets up cravings.

2) Never, never, never eat too much salt--as in pork rinds or cracklings. I did know this before. It also makes me crave.

3) Wine is probably not a good idea. For some reason today, I've been craving like anything. Hence, I did a search for cookies. Why was I craving today? Wine from yesterday? Pork products from yesterday?

4) Being a stay at home mom of a young child and also a homeschooler can get me feeling very antsy sometimes. Especially when doing math. I need to schedule more fun escapes for both of us. The tension is bad for me.

If I think of anything else, I'll be sure to bore you with it. I'm looking forward to April when I can rid myself of most of this excess. You know, even 10lb lost and I might be able to wear some of last year's spring/summer clothes.

I'm closing this month of March in doom and desperation! But, I'm still hopeful.
I want to feel that I'm in control, not my cravings or my moods but that I control at least what I eat. I can't control my children perhaps, the economic situation or even my health, but I can control my food intake.

I hope that during April, I will remain in control. A month of no cheats? Worthwhile goal or too stringent?

[QUOTE=red_teapot;13318331]Ok, I feel pathetic. [QUOTE]


Do NOT beat yourself up! It was only ONE day. Even Dr Stillman recognized the fact that we will sometimes have a lapse. Just start again.....

Is it possible to ask your DH to NOT make cookies??? Maybe if he is feeling the need for a treat he can take himself and the kids to go get ice cream (gives you some peace and quiet )

Sometimes a craving is our body telling us we are dehydrated! (I know this sounds strange but it's true). You may be dehydrated - especially after the wine and the salt.

We all KNOW you can do this!

Sharon

PS - I homeschooled 2 girls so I know some of what you are going through

She's so goofy at times that is what I love most about the videos.... I have Jillian Michaels video and she's such a hard ass, I get intimidated and discouraged because it's hard to keep up! I also have the p90x videos and lolol is all I have to say about that. I broke a sweat just previewing the workout!
Yeah she has an amazing body, and her vids always come out on top in magazine questionaires. She's the host of the U.K. Big Brother...just cos I'm sure you were dying to know!!

Sharon- I would love to hear more about this couch to 5K. Im gonna check out the iphone app....would you like a buddy??

teapot- as our good friend Dustin would say, get back on the horse! You've done it already and lost quite a few pounds. march was madness and April will be amazing. We believe in you! (Its so tough being in the house all day with kids, especially if they are eating grilled cheese and cheezits...my biggest downfalls. Actually, I used to eat all the PB&J crusts the kids wouldnt touch. hated to waste! and hubbys that make cookies????!! Ask him not to until you have a few good weeks under your belt. Temptation is just to great right now.)

GT- are you still here. Got something ready for ya

The sad thing is that for me, overeating doesn't even have to be too much. Certain meats also make me gain--like fatty pork or even my beloved beef ribs. I believe you can eat the way you do. I hope I will be able to. Maybe my metabolism is just messed up. Maybe my age, my hormones, etc. But I seem to need to count protein, fat even though I'm not eating carbs....I wish I didn't.
Yup! Me too!!

Oh yeah mine!!! I'm not sure I'm that brave! No actually I went looking last night(see you were shaming me into posting them---well I never want to be left out!) and I was looking through the picks and I had deleted everyone that I had when I was-well let's say bigger!1 I got rid of them all cos I just couldn't bare to look at them-they were taken in the Summer and I was huge! .....but unfortunately friends have some I think so I might get one!!! I really thought I would never lose the weight so I trashed them--I'm a bit sorry now!

And Lady Gagas back!!! You really have a lovely face,Al--and with lovely round cheeks---and I honestly mean that in a very good way. Mine has got way to thin and I don't think it suits me at all.

Al - I would LOVE a buddy. You can Google Couch to 5k and find lots of information. There is also a group on HERE under the Exercise plans I read through several of the Exercise groups on here and thought the C25K was something that would challenge me AND that I could do.

Anyone else want to try it?
