It's four years with Sparkpeople today,
Four years of living with full consciousness of what I am doing with my body and life in general. Four years of shouting woooohoooo at every victory,
Four years of making internet friends that are closer than real friends
Four years learning to set goals and striving to meet with them.

emoticon everyone for being there for me.

With the above analysis, I think I thrive on exercise to lose weight. When the minutes are higher, my weight reduces, when the minutes reduces, the weight increases.

I wrote this analysis in that last blog too but I think it is either I forgot or event overrode it or no strong will to follow through with my plans.


Day 82 Update: Bread

Friday, December 05, 2014

I love eating bread! But it is sabotaging my efforts presently, I am still researching what substitute to have when the cravings for bread comes along.

This past week, my weight was rising geometrically and I felt so strongly that bread is responsible for it. I weighed in at 177.6lbs on Wednesday, my weigh in day and with the excuse that it was water weight, I climbed the scale again on Thursday [even after a workout] and a whooping 178.8lbs was staring at me, wow what did I do wrong except bread.

I am deciding today to give bread a break but I will need a substitute and maybe a cheat day so that my efforts will not be sabotaged by cravings at the end of the day and it become worse than when I started.

What advice do you have for me sparkies? for more blogs

    I can feel your struggle of wanting bread almost everyday because it is one of the fastest food to grab. without thinking of the implication. As for me what i did was decided one day to not eat more than 2 slice of bread in one was difficult at first few days. but i keep telling myself rather than grab another slice of bread i will grab a the time it was 3 weeks i realised that some days i dont even have bread. every where i go i have a piece of fruit in my bag. this has really helped me till today. becos in my household they cant do without bread but am not tempted anymore. set small goal for the bread and you will get there.....

    emoticon PREBESS for your comments and experience with sabotages like fries. I love you post and it gave me a second resolve

Resolve 2:
Never ever allow insignificant things to interrupt or disrupt your life's goals. No matter what it is, if it not important, it is simply NOT IMPORTANT.

    Well my friend, it looks like you and I are sorta in the same boat. For me, it isn't bread, although I do love it! My thing here of late are french fries... wholly molly, bring 'em on! Actually, that use to be my attitude as I had been eating them like crazy... nearly every day for about 5 months. However, I stopped this madness earlier this week after my mouth-dropping weight in. I am a faithful food tracker and am careful to stay within my range, so although I ate them regularly, I also ate just one portion, but, what I've been reminded of through this is that all calories, even staying with range, aren't good calories.

Like you, I believe my recent slight weight gain is due to my beloved fries due to the starch turning into sugar component. I too decided to not necessarily deprive myself, but, back away considerably. I'll allow myself a reasonably portion at most, once a week.

I've come way, way, way to far in this journey to allow those critters to take me backwards... oh no, not me. I"m on it. This weight gain will go.

    emoticon @holierthanthou. Walking 3km to get 1 cupcake? That is a lot of discipline. I gained something from your experience,

Resolve 1.
Do not buy more than you need at a time, if it is ever worth it.

    Bread is tough. I love it too. Baguettes with butter or a really good brie make life worth living. I stopped buying the bread I like. I now buy bread that leaves me feeling completely blank (ie: zero emotions of either pleasure or desire). I am always ok with having just one slice of this stuff, since I don't love it. It is called Ezekiel bread and you can find it in health food stores in North America. So far this has worked for me.

I like your idea of having bread once in awhile to prevent out-of-control cravings. This sounds completely sensible. I do the same with cupcakes. I can't speak for you or what works for you. I can only share what works for me, which is never having them in the house, ever. If I want a cupcake, I have to get off my butt and march to the bakery. I buy myself one cupcake. I then walk back home (for a total of 3 kilometres). Then I can eat my cupcake. I never feel guilty about that once-in-awhile cupcake, I feel good about myself for getting some extra exercise, and I never feel deprived. Anyway, this is how I handle foods that I LOVE. And it works really well for me (so far)

Good luck with bread! I am sure you will figure something out.

    You are SO right! I never eat bread when I am bringing my weight down. I love it too much and I am not good at moderation.
