170.6-Not sure why I am kind of up and down a pound everyday but it is frustrating. It's the first day of spring and I feel like I REALLY want to make my goal and be 155 or 150 by late June and when summer kicks in....
I also want to be free of some of this weight for the middle of spring.
I know I cannot put a time limit on this woe BUT I do feel like I am working so very hard and with that I expect results -quickly or quicker.
One thing- (this is TMI I know) BUT I felt so very constipated in the past few days. This morning I felt some relief and maybe that it why the scale moved?

Not sure-but everyday is a journey on figuring myself and my body out. In a couple of weeks I go for a physical and I am so very nervous about that .
Doctors and hospitals make me very anxious.
Hoping for a good day....

170.6--trying to stay positive and focused-it feels like an "off" week for me-lacking motivation and the up-down a pound thing does not help.
I'd like to try "fasting" a bit-BUT I know that can be a danger zone for me since that can bring on ED behaviors....I have to be very careful ALL the time.
Each choice I make weighs heavily on my outcomes and future behaviors.

Weighed in 169.2 this morning.
Think I am coming down with a cold-sore throat.
Need to get myself in gear-hard to believe March is almost over!

Weighed in at 169.2

I have a cold today but I think my mentality is back on track. I want to make my shopping list and be prepared for the week ahead.
So many parties and events are going to be coming uo in the nextt few months and I know I have to buy a few outfits for myself. I am hoping to get to 164 soon-that would mark a 40 pound loss for me and maybe cause to celebrate and buy an outfit or 2....

Not even sure what I weighed in today-think 170.8

I feel very sick today-asthma and chest congestion. This explains the lethargy I was feeling for a few days. Hoping to kick this cold in the butt without going to the doctors....we'll see.

Last week of March!

Weighed in at 167.6 today-(again, I will not allow myself to celebrate too loudly) I am glad the scale is moving in the right direction & I hope this is a trend that continues. It is still such a struggle to make eating or not eating and what I eat a very clear conscience choice. I struggle with that because for years I have always just eaten whenever and whatever and never really looked or analyzed why or how much I was eating. I still feel the stress monster begging me for food at times and like any other addict-I need to stop and think before I consume.

Well-as far as my cold, it has gotten better. I am hoping to get back on the exercise train soon. My problem is months ago, I was happy or content with the treadmill. Now I just want to be outside.
Hoping for a good day.....

I bought size 12 pants today thinking they would not fit and THEY DID! I am happy...
I am going to a shower today and hope there are good choices for me..I find these events most difficult.

I am hoping to continue this trend.

April is here! I weighed in at 169 today and I am not upset! I know its water weight from the salty food at the restaurant...on top of that I overindulged when I got home which in hind sight I should of ate nothing and just drank water.

Today I am on track and making sure to stay focused. I have a short week of work and then I will have a week off for spring break. I'd like to say I will be going away with the family but in fact we have dr. appts, spring cleaning and a garage sale to work on. I'd like to take it one day at a time , stay on track, and spend quality time with my family. Balance can be so tricky but I know it is worth it....

Weighed in 166 today.
I am so glad I did not overeact yesterday when I ate some chips. Normally, I would feel such disappointment and defeat I would eat MORE bad food (binge) and sometimes would have purged (the past). This time I accepted what I did, recognized it was a bad choice and noticed that the chips did not help my hunger. I did not eat anything else for the rest of the night BUT I made sure that I realized how chips DO NOT satisfy my hunger-cheese, bacon, pickles, pork rinds would have been better and would have satisfied me.

Everyday there are learning lessons....

I am feeling pretty anxious today. I have an event that I am in charge of tonight for work and I think that has something to do with it. I feel there is so much to do at home lately that work related stuff just gets me more anxious. I am going to try and "relax" as much as I can. I have to be very careful that these types of moods do not connect with my eating habits. I notice that staying in control with my eating helps me significantly, that is why I do not want to slip up and make bad choices.

Ughhh-and today marks 9 months of being on LC woe and I am grateful for my progress but so impatient some days and wish I can see MORE progress.
Patience is surely a virtue...

I am excited and gearing up for the week off of work! I am hoping being at home will not deter me from eating correctly.
I want to plan, plan and plan some more....


Hoping for the best!

I have to go out for dinner tonight. Hoping to get a good salad and maybe a glass of wine.
Thanks Psmiley! I think I am out of the 170's now-but now I am anxious to get out of the 160's! My new goal is to be 145-not sure if I can go lower than that.
I have a wedding to go to in July and I am hoping to get close to that.
How are you doing maintaining? You are at 150 right? Your avatar looks awesome! BTW-Thanks for cheering me on and checking in. It's so helpful and I appreciate it.

170.4 today.
So upset with myself. I ate sugar in the form of Peeps but also ate way too much low carb high sodium food like cheese.

Not going to let this get me down. Back on track today. I have a dr. appt today and I am so nervous about it.

uhhhhh...it's never easy...but I know it's worth it.
