moderation is a good word. It is sometimes hard for me to use. I'm like that all or nothing kind of person. I am getting better though. Sometimes when you eat a certain food you feel you just have to eat more and more. I don't make that food very often. It seems that the foods I love are high in fat. Oh a lot of them are good for me like nuts but you can't eat tons of them so I try to put a serving in a bowl and that is what I can eat. sometimes it works and sometimes I know right where the nuts are kept. All I know is this is a process and it is ok if I mess up some days

    Oh my gosh, I just posted something about this today! I feel exactly the same way...it's so hard for me to realize that there shouldn't be that all or nothing mentality. Keep up the great work! It's something I'm gonna work on...

    You're correct... Moderation is the key!!

Remember if you take two steps forward and one step back, you're still one step ahead!!!!

Have a great day!!!

banking calories

Friday, October 26, 2012

Today I watched the video on how not to over eat at special events or parties. They talked about banking calories so at eh end of the week you are still in your ranges. I think I have talked about this before. I usually have no trouble with the calorie part in fact most of the time I am under. What the problem is the fat. I try to cut out the fat by using low fat foods but somehow the fat range is always high. so when the ask how was your eating I always say ok because I guess i feel like I should eat less fat.

  Your body does need some fat, so don't cut back too much. Keep up the good work!

so excited

Thursday, October 25, 2012

they say it takes 12 weeks before people see that you have lost weight... will yesterday (8weeks in) I had 2 people come up to me and tell me I looked great. wow hard work pays off. the funny thing lately I haven't been feeling like I have been loosing. My pants still seem to fit about the same around my middle. So I was really encouraged by them. My daughter comes home from college in a few weeks and we will measure each other then. I'm a little nervous. I hope the inches go down. I also have stepped up my exercise a little since I didn't do well last week and I want to lose 5 pounds by Thanksgiving.

woo hoo moment

Tuesday, October 23, 2012

yesterday was just one of those days woke up thinking it was Friday and then the weekend. There were cookies at work and I had a very stressful night at home dealing with some family issues. I am here today to say I had a great day. work went well for a monday and the cookies stayed on the plate and as for emotional eating... it didn't happen. Plus had a great walk with my daughter. I know not everyday will turn out that good but yesterday it did so praise God. He carried me through yet another day.

Today I stepped on the scales and I gained 1 pound. I shouldn't be surprised I didn't do well this week although yesterday was better i exercised and ate ok. am trying not to stress over it. I think the reason I am stress is because I want to be under 200 when My daughters come home for Thanksgiving and I just might not be there. I know they don't care if I am or not it was just a goal of mine and I dont want to be disappointed

    Just checking in to see how yesterday went--glad to see it went okay! Gosh, that pound could be just about anything: not enough water, too much salt, out of control eating during the week, etc. What I'm trying to say is, hang in there. Recover from the week and start fresh, learn where the triggers are and go from there. You have an great goal in mind for your girls! emoticon emoticon
