thinking...

I can;t believe it is almost the end of February-considering the holidays and stress I am surprised I have stuck to this woe through it all.
I am determined to make March a productive month.

I want to do well and I promise myself to work hard and remember to PLAN my meals and to try to distinguish real hunger from head hunger.

I also keep promising myself to try and exercise.
I want to---hoping to take one day at a time but wishing for a month f significant loss in weight.

Today I weighed in 173.8.
I am pretty sure it is because I ate "more" than usual when I went out last night. I ate veggies, salad, spinach artichoke dip, creamed spinach and steak for dinner..2 diet cokes. That has been more than usual.
Hopefully it is just water?

172 is awesome!
I was just thinking of you b/c my scale is broken now. I use Wii Fit to weigh myself and apparently my 2 year old stuck something in it!

Weighed in at 171.6 today.
I am not a negative person-but I know better than to start celebrating too soon.

Hoping to get into the 160's by next week- Spring is Near!

weighed in at 171. Feeling good that the scale is moving and hoping to continue the trend. I tightened the reigns on my calories and I need to continue that. Planning on going out out eat tonight w/friends. i wanto t find the fun in being together w. friends not the food part. My plan is no alcohol, no sweets, salad, a meat and veggie w/diet coke an water. I am going to be careful w.appetizers too...sometimes that adds up. I want to exercise today also. Need to spend tomorrow food shopping, organizing and doing school work.

172 today-everytime I go out to eat this happens.
I definitely stuck to plan-I did order a glass of wine but I only had a few sips.
I did not even have diet coke-just water, shrimp, steak, some green beans-no coffee either.

Maybe it's just quantity?
we'll see-I did not eat any of the scrumptious desserts offered. Hoping this hard work will continue to pay off.

Maybe just added salt?
I think restuarants use a lot more than we do at home.

I was pretty proud of how I ate.

Today I weighed in at 171.8.
I am determined to be 169 by Thursday...I want out of the 170's desperately.
Trying to stay on plan by preparing my foods and not winging it. Yesterday I was so hungry and wanted sugar too. I thought I was going to cave but I stayed strong and didn't. There was so much temptation at work too.
I am definitely learning that stress triggers needless snacking. But doing this weight roller coaster for so long, I think I am finally realizing that eating my problems do not make the problems go away-in fact they make matters worse.
Such an easy concept but so difficult for some to live with.

Still working hard.

Today I weighed in at 170.6.
(sigh)
BUT-if I reach 169 by Sunday-that will mark 35 pounds in 7 months which will make me happy. I want March to be productive and I do not want to feel sorry for myself. I want to lose 6-10 pounds this month. I am also hoping for some nice days outside to go for some walks (I am not enjoying the treadmill in my basement)

Hoping for a good day and good choices.

I weighed in at 170.6 this morning.
I am feeling stressed out at home-money is tight and regular stress at home seems exaggerated because of this. I want to stay on track and not turn to food for comfort. My hubby and I use to "bond" by snacking and watching tv together too-now we don;t do that anymore and its kind of a bummer. I know we should do other things together but it was easy, cheap and relaxing. We never needed a babysitter because we did it after the kids went to bed.
I feel like I am being pulled in so many directions which makes thinking about myself low on the totem pole of priorities.

I hope I don't slip and I hope weight keeps coming off because I think that will be the ultimate motivator for me.

Today I weighed in at 171.8. Every time I go out to eat and eat on plan I gain...it stinks!
It's not getting me down though-I still feel good and eating on plan.

171.8 today.
I felt very stressed out this weekend-not sure why. I am beginning to know that I am a much better eater when my days are structured-like during the work week. I put some clothes away in a bag this weekend which I though would of made me feel better but I think it actually made me feel anxious? I am not sure why? I always appreciate less clutter ---we'll see. I am also noticing how you need to tweak your way of eating once in a while. I stopped eating wings w. dressing and noticed some changes in me. It was a "safe" food but I guess I was overdoing it.... I want to eat "clean" and be more active.

Hoping for a good week...

Today I weighed in at 169.2.
I am so happy to have broke thru to the 160's BUT I am not celebrating just yet. I know how this all works. I am being patient and careful. Saturday night I am going out to eat again and I am amazed how one night can throw me off-I am being careful that I do not go to extremes and get super excited and either eat too much or not enough as a reaction.

This is a way of eating for me and I have to keep reminding myself of that. When I eat something "bad" for me I try to remember how NOT worth it was to eat that or how bad the consequence is for eating something not healthy. I also am trying to remember that food does not equal fun. I can have a good time with friends at dinner and not base the experience around food.
This is truly a life learning experience for me....Hoping to make good choices today.

Ugh-171.6 today? not sure why?

This definitely frustrates me...The funny thing is it is not hard for me to not eat sweets lately...I have no desire for them. But I still crave for carbs at time.
I have not given in, I am still staying strong.

171.1 today.
I hate this numbers game. Actually, I begin to "crave" bad food when the numbers fluctuate like that for me. I know this is more of a mental thing-it is how I predominantly used to think. If I did not get instant gratification for something I believed I worked hard at-I would self sabotage myself by eating more and this would be a vicious cycle. I am trying really hard to stay away from that thinking because that is what I believe caused many years of yo-yo dieting and self-loathing/bad self-esteem.

This week, I have heard some really sad news about some friends of mine and their loved ones. It is has been really challenging to hear such sad news.

Hoping to have a good weekend-out to dinner tonight and tomorrow. I want to make some good choices.....trying to stay organized as a mom can be so difficult. Sometimes the last person we worry about is ourselves.

172.6?????
I am so upset and confused....I don't feel I have eaten anything off plan..not even too many calories?? Interestingly, my clothes seem loose? I do not take measurements so I do not know if that is accurate.

However, I will not let this deter me, I will keep going.
I want to have enough energy to go to the park with the kids after work. It is supposed to be a really nice week weather wise.
Hoping to make good choices....

I am so determined to lose weight-I don't care how long it takes although I would like it to happen sooner than later. I am tired of not being comfortable or proud of how I look.
