NAUGHTY OR NICE

Saturday, December 08, 2012

I'm making a (food) list and checking it twice:

B: scrambled eggs, coffee

L: Progresso light soup

D: baked fish, 3 servings of veggies
snacks: tangerines

Sounds reasonable, doesn't it?

SELF-CONTROL

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

"A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls." (Proverbs 25) Eugene Peterson puts it this way: "A person without self-control is like a house with its doors and windows knocked out ." That pretty well describes the feelings that engulf you after a binge-fest. You're left defenseless against shame and blame. Empowerment follows a day of remaining food sober. I'm rebuilding my walls, one day at a time.

    Sometimes I have great self control and other times, not so much. I need to buckle down tomorrow.

A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP

Monday, November 12, 2012

It's amazing how peacefully you sleep when you don't binge on processed salty, sugary foods at night, washed down with diet soda. Yes, eating "clean" foods is beneficial on many levels, but a night without antacids and indigestion is invaluable to the next day's well-being. I'm going to repeat what I did yesterday: salmon, brussel sprouts, asparagus, veggie burger, fresh fruit, air-popped popcorn, and a little All-Bran. Just for today.....

FINALLY

Friday, November 02, 2012

It's been a long time coming, but I finally stuck to what I planned in my nutritional tracker! They say the secret to losing weight is track your food. I disagree, tracking is easy, it's the sticking to the tracker that's hard. Now, I do admit, that once I've veered off course, I don't enter the binge foods. In defense, how could I? I don't weigh and measure when I'm gorging. Wait, that's not a defense, that's an excuse! I succeeded yesterday, I can do it again today. I'm the only one that can stop me from meeting my goal. (and I think I can "take her")

    Sometimes it's helpful to track the binges - because you can see how many calories you're really eating, and then it makes you think twice next time. At least, it does that for me.

    Good for you! Track every morsel that goes into your mouth though. It is motivating to track even when you eat something you wish you hadn't. It holds you accountable. I think you can "take her" too!

RIGHT DIRECTION

Monday, October 29, 2012

I'm headed in the right direction and regaining control of my food addiction. I look forward to the day when it doesn't feel like a constant battle, a tug of war with the little red devil and the haloed angel on my shoulders. WW had a commercial with a fuzzy, cutsie little orange "hunger" critter. Whoever wrote that commercial didn't fight the battle of the bulge, because there is nothing warm and fuzzy about emotional eating. I didn't have a perfect day yesterday, but it was a better one than the day before. I'm aiming for more movement today.

PEACE AND PRODUCTIVITY....I PRESS ON!

    I used to take the blame for lack of willpower...but since I've given up foods that boost insulin levels, I don't have those unbelieveable cravings. the more you cut back on starches and sugar, the less overwhelming those cravings become

THIS WORKS. WENT ON WEEKS CRUISE DID NOT GAIN A POUND.

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years
old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off. took 16 months.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x. took 7 months.

use a salad plate as a dinner plate

use fruit for your sweet tooth cravings, an apple works great. helps with the chewing sensation.

fill your salad plate with half vegetables.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal

    I agree. It is so hard to fight the desire to eat. Like you my day yesterday wasn't that good, but today is a new day and I am not looking back and neither should you. We can do it. Just keep looking forward. small steps and before you know it you can look back at how far you have gone. It is a slow road but well worth it.
