How did you do?


My weigh in morning is Thursday AM.. not sure what tale will be told THIS week.. I have faithfully recorded my food, but that does not mean I have eaten as well as I could!

Down a little more than 1/2 a lb. That's ok, seeing as I was up 2 or 3 on Saturday Morning.

Courtney, get back on track dang-nabit!

Thanks!! I need that!

I'm briefly tracking in sparkpeople vs WW. We'll see how it goes.

crap. i did not even finish journalling yesterday. DH ate my snack Thursday night, so i was without my hearty snack Friday at work and became famished and all i had was an orange. When i got home, i just about ate whatever i could i was so hungry. I HATE THAT and try to prevent it by always having a good amount of food with me boooooooooo

I have been tracking .. but when I know I've been grazing ( a nice way to put pigging out too much !) it is very hard to face the reality .. I have been making myself do it though. I have a doctor's appointment at the end of June for which I want to weigh substantially less than I did in January.. I also have 2 bathing suits I bought in February at the LLBean store that I want to fit when the lake beach is opened in June!
Can you find a way to motivate yourself - set a mini goal for so many days journaling ( as best you can) then reward yourself with an activity you want?
I have to share that I am silly - but proud of myself- I went to breakfast with DD this morning. There is a very yummy breakfast buffet there, but she led the way and we ordered just what we wanted instead of pigging! I am SO glad she is so aware and has such a healthy attitude! I just never wanted my warped food sense to ever rub off on her.. and I think it worked.. ( in fact her sensible nature is rubbing off on ME! )

RaisingAZ-- that is great about your daughter. My mother had/has a very warped food sense and is morbidly obese, she was on every diet in the book growing up, it really affected me until i was old enough and wise enough to educate myself

Set mini goals and if you are short of your goal, reassess and make new goals. Bathing suit? sigh. i do not see one in my future. I am way self concious

Just do it as they say in the commercial! I love to swim in the summer and we spend a lot of time at the town beach at the local lake ( It is only 5 miles away but it is always 5 degrees cooler there !) I went out in a really ugly bathing suit when 8 months pregnant and WAY WAY fatter than I am now in addition to that baby... I have seen loads worse figures in bikinis even at our little beach. I don't worry about it. I keep a scarf sarong or long beach T for sitting/ reading/ relaxing. Go for it!

ok, i have been so crazy insane busy that i have not had a minute to journal, and barely a minute to think in the past couple weeks. After my race this weekend, i am back to journalling, hold me accountable people! I feel fat, though i am probably only up a couple lbs, because that's what happens when i am not stringent. i also think the stress is not helping matters

That's okay Meri- I think the biggest part is to keep coming back to it when you need to. Keeping it up daily FOREVER would just be to entirely overwhelming doncha think?
I had a sporadic week logging my eats in - I was very sick on tuesday and wednesday and only ate anything consequential yesterday afternoon! My weight was down of course, but I am now getting back on it with journaling and getting the exercise in. I have a doctor's appointment in 1 month and want to see if the weight is what is messing with my right knee or if I (k)need to push the doc for more.
I hear you on the stress...
Just get to journaling just for today and worry about tomorrow when it arrives. Writing about the stress often helps you release it as well! Make the time You can do it !

I'm still with you in spirit. I have to admit that my lack of time at the computer now that the good weather is here and the end of school is near has kept me from posting here and my journaling has been sporadic..can see the difference when I don't write it ALL down... I am maintaining but not losing. Will pledge here to journal every day for the next week - till school ends - even if I am super busy!

I've been having a hard time too, but I'll try, I'm close to that 129.8 barrier and I'm sure that journalling for two weeks would get me there.

I'm back in..and welcome Maddie!
