I have to venture into this area more often! I didn't know there were journals here LOL (still a newb). Look at your accomplishments MissGreen! You're doing it!! Keep up the good work. I think it's so awesome how those inches just melt off even when the scale says otherwise and fluctuates the way it does (or staying put as in my case LOL). Great pictures too, you are so pretty!! My goodness!

I'll have to start a journal here too, it's great to see how things keep progressing!

You CAN and WILL do this!! Just gotta stick with it and say NO to evil temptations! You should log ALL of your food in your journal, so if you get an idea to have a nibble of something you WON'T because you'll have to tell me about it!

Oh tempted my weekend was so so! We did get a new big screen tv. Rather nice! Did you fall off??? Good going jumping right back on. I know I was tempted all weekend and considering that I did have a few Off snacks (nuts*gasp*) I still was able to stay on track.

Weighed in at 197 on friday morning. Went out w/ others on friday nite and had seafood on saturday. gained to 199 yesterday morning. oye...BUT back to 197 this morning. I actually ate my butt off this weekend. Seeing that number again so quickly is amazing. Kinda cool. Glad toms making its way out. Im hoping to see 195 by friday. WOW do you know that will be my newest lowest weight in years!!!! YEARS!!!!!!

Well Im off to eat breakie!!!!!

Hi ladies...I hope you are all doing fantastic!

Today wasnt all that great for me. The cold gloom mixed with the irritating significant other had made my day not so great. I have come to realize that if him and I have a bad start in the morning it really does dictate how my day will go. I wish It didnt but it does.

I ate some no-no's today. 3tsps of lucky charms, 3 choco pretzels and 5 french fries more then likely blew my steady holding 197. I'll see what damage it created in the morning. I am going to make a strong brew of green tea and knock what ever retention I may have out before I go to bed. Its a great natural diuretic for me.

I'm still not disappointed that much in myself as long as I dont make this a habit. Although I did tell myself no cheats for the rest of the month..OOPS! Ummm Yah, I did just that.

Why do I not feel bad though. Wierd!

Well I will post my weight in the morning.

I'm still up. Ok it was a bad Idea to have a 16oz energy drink close to 8pm and didnt finish it til about midnight.

Energy= Fat loss????? I hope ....but doubt it after yesterdays snackattackathon. lol...

Ok..Sitting here thinking about other trigger/sabatogers:

Getting a cold
Sad
Mad
BOREDOM

I noticed during stress I tend to have to much going on in my mind that I don't think about eating but rather completely get consumed with cleaning. I have been good for cleanin the following:

Walls
Floorboards
Dusting every single thing
Organizing and reOrganizing


Now I understand that a typical person may do this on an every day basis or weekly but the above is something I do every 3 mons. If Im stressed out over things I will do this almost OCD like til whatevers stressing me is resolved. Cleaning helps me not deal with things.

However, if my stress is borderline "I dont know what Im going to do" about a situation I cant help but shut down and keep quite to myself and just sleep. That maybe depression? I have no clue. I know that my stress and my triggers are 2 different things.

Luckily for me I dont get in those "cleaning" or "self loathing" modes often.

Before when I would get mad or sad I would drink. Drinking was my pacifier. It sucked big time....

It was like, as soon as I got mad the thought " you need a drink" would pop into my head. I had one instance of that a few weeks ago and really had to snap myself back into place cause I dont need to have a drink to medicate my feelings.

Although I do have an occasional social drink or two while in the company of good friends, drinking is not something me and my significant other participate at home with anymore. I had a tendency to be an antagonizer and he the same. Those to did nothing but cause chaos in our home. Im glad that thats over and done with.


lmao.....so I completely went off topic on what I originally came to post.

You get the jist of it!

I know how you feel, sometimes I get so stressed out that all I want to do is curl up and bed and sleep the day away. I've never really been an emotional person but lately, if I survive a weekend without wanting to cry it's a success.

Wow! Great progress

Let's stick with it lady! No more mishaps, no more nibbles! The cleaner you eat the better you'll feel and the easier the weight will come off (hopefully)!

No....unfortunately not! Im mad too. Did my taxes and did my figures of what I needed to take care of bill wise and after all was paid for realized I don't really have the extra $75 to just put into my hair. Although I could, I rather save it for things that we really need to get.

I also am scared of just anyone doing my hair, I have had to many horrible experiences in that. My stylist retired in august and I didnt find out til september when I went for a trim. Needless to say the person who did my hair cut it so short I was in tears. I didnt want to pay her but didnt say anything I literally felt stuck with it. Since then I decided to grow my hair out and hopefully by fall it will be long enough to cut into a layered style.

If it wasnt for us buying a newer used car that needs a bit of engine work I would go and get my hair colored and highlighted with the $75. I am going to color it though at home. Im doing that later tonight. Funny you mentioned it. Going red. kinda.......well yah! lmao...........I havent been red in a lonnnnnnnnnnng time almost 10yrs now. It will be a change. Im usually just use to keeping my hair more brown or black..but im over it now. I'll post a few pics of it later.

latte....ur so funny. As I type this I have color developing in my hair. I am going to rinse in about 5 mins. Ok so I mixed the color together and was distracted by my lil one being cranky came back and resumed applying the color. It wasnt til after I was going to throw the applicator away that I noticed I forgot to mix in the shimmer oil in the solution! Im wondering if i could just mix this with a conditioner and apply it alone? That sucks. Its probably not going to be as shimmery as it usually is. This is the Feria brand. Ok...gotta go rinse...and I will dry my hair and take some piccys! wish me luck...lol..

Ok so I had colored my hair black in halloween of 2008. Why do I have semi darker tips in the front ends where the color didnt take. ugh....lmao...otherwise the color came out nice. I was going to take pics last nite but I grabbed my camera took some and realized my memory card wasnt in it. I just found it in the office computer downstairs. I will take some pics in a bit. I have somethings to do and then I'll post.

hahahah latte..I still havent got to it yet! oye.......

Not feeling to hot today. Getting a cold or it just mybe a mild one. icky nose, cough and a throat. my ears itch too.

Along with that ...my lil munchies from during mid week have finally caught up with me. My tummy feels itchy and im bloated. The scale said 200 today. Not cool. I hope it goes down quickly. That will teach me that a few things here and there are totally not worth it. Shesh.....I mind as well had a full on carb binge day since the scale bumped 3lbs.

Anyways..my nephews 2nd bday is tomorrow. From what I heard they are having a big ol fiasco for him. The joys of bieng from a spanish family. There will be food everywhere.

I would have said that was bad, but, to each their own! You gotta get back on plan and stay there if you want to see the results you want lady!

yah latte ..I have to agree....I really didnt even get the temptation to have icecream or a half the cupcake as it was being offered to me. HOWEVER, as soon as I put a cupcake and a little scoop of icecream in a small bowl to give to my daughter, did the temptation arise. I fought it for the duration that the icecream was still hard. As it melted and mingled with the broken up cupcake did I finally submit. Ok...so it wasnt a great decision and neither was the corn chips. I did just have a few of them.

Anyways....as such is expected, cravings did kick in after the fact. Call me weak..but I am now sipping on a sky vodka and sprite zero. I havent had a drink since Halloween. I have craved it for months and got over it just as fast. Tonight I verbalized it and the hun buns agreed that he wouldnt mind a drink also. Although we dont drink almost at all anymore, this probably will be the only time in awhile that I do so.

Oh ladies......I need more strength!!!

Where is that motivation and determination hiding??? I must have some underlying issue in myself. I know im fighting back an at home issue ....I think its steeming from that! or is that just an excuse????

Im having some serious issues with staying OP...not so much as staying OP but having the motivation.
Im so not trying to regain lbs that took me MONTHS to get off. if I dont get my butt back on motivation street I'll do just that! The scaled jumped to 204 this morning. I dunno what to do.
Last week just put me in a downward spiral. Im trying today....1 shake down.....will either have another one later or a small meal and then dinner.

There has to be a reason behind me not having the will to be good. I have to find my trigger or irritation.

It cant be the cold since its been nice and seasonally warm.
The days have become just a tad bit longer again.
There's no rain.

Stressors:

Do have some financial issues.
I do want to go back to work...No readily affordable sitter or childcare.
The above has kinda been a conflict between me and the other.

Then again winter and spring months can make me feel this way too. I tend to get really motivated and do alot more towards late spring til the end of the year.

Gotta figure my mess out. I dont like the fact that I bumped back over 200 again...not just 200 but 204 this morning.

It def. had alot to do with the 2 drinks I had on Saturday night. I'll feel better once I get back down.

Its water weight give it a few days and it will be gone, if you knuckle down from now til march you could be within a few lbs of your march goal how great would that be? try not to stress too much that also holds water and can trigger binges, try not to plan to far a head and take each day at a time, you have come this far

lol...tempted I just wrote about taking 1 day at a time and focusing on just today. It is very much water weight I can feel it. Fingers are still puffy. Working on getting a ton of water in today. It seems like I am really lacking on my water intake lately. I need to get with it. I noticed that I drink more water when I consume it from a Aquafina bottle. The very large ones. I can drink about 3 or 4 of those in a day If I have the bottles. If not Im pushing to drink out of cups since I have to continuously keep going and filling it up. I guess a stop to the store today for water bottles is a must.

Thank you for being there to listen.......

I wish I had some solid advice for ya lady. To beat off those cravings you could go through 2 weeks of Induction (DANDR) then move into OWL? Maybe it's structure you need? Read the book! Read it again!

If I go over 40carbs per day I gain. OWL is something I want to get too. However, I keep myself at induction levels for the most part. never going over 20 and staying at 30 on a higher carb day.

I tried close to ZC for a few days I think in week 3 of this. It didnt last. Maybe I should try that out again. Since I was still so fresh into just starting then It was hard. I do have more self control (hahahha ok we wont go into that one..lol) now so maybe trying ZC will work this time. the only thing is having HWC in my coffee. thats about the only thing I couldnt get close to ZC with.

I guess Im going to have to re open my print and get the points across again. lol....
