Tonight I'm tired

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Tonight I'm tired...tired of everything...tired. REALLY tired of this weight struggle....so tired.

I'm supposed to bake a cake for my SIL's birthday, but if I do it tonight, I also believe I will eat it all.

So, I'm gonna do the smart thing and go to bed now. Tomorrow I will purchase a cake and make sure she takes the left overs home.

SparkFriends...please send strength...I'm in need of strength...

    Good thoughts and vibes sent your way!

You have every right to start saying "no" if it will help simplify your life and avoid you feeling overwhelmed.

I used to feel guilty when I said no, but now I realize that I am the one in charge of taking care of myself.

    How incredible that you were strong enough to identify your temptation and then DO something about it! I am SO impressed. I don't think that I would have done so well. Good for you!

    The only thing I have is I have been in many situations where I was tempted,,and gave in. I was always regretful. The other is, I was diagnosed we both diabetes two. recently. So I now am sugar free on all. Why not get a Weight Watcher dessert and just s t check point the calories? Just don't make yourself miserable.

    I know everybody is different. And, I be differenter than most. (Not bragging or complaining but just stating fact.)

However, I just can't help but think that many people, here at SP, who bemoan not be "strong enough" are barking up the wrong pasta and sausage tree.

The problem usually is not strength, but habit -- established behavior patterns -- behavioral inertia. The way to change that is through attention, planning, tracking and evaluation. You must know this because you've had great success.

And, remember, your greatest reward for success, i.e., a better you -- is not an extravagant meal, but a still better YOU!

    You can do it. Your meals look great..You will be in that 5 percent that keep it off. We all go through times in maintenance when we have to work off pounds. You are not alone.

Day 9...just when I think I've got it alllllll together....

Tuesday, August 13, 2013

Oh gosh...I've been so good. I've learned so much, I have community, I have success, I have desire. So why with all these things would I have a binge???? It's a good thing to think about and learn from in an effort for it to re-occur as infrequently as possible...

Exercise: Stairs
Food: Breakfast: eggs, feta and kale. Lunch Tomato/basil salad. Supper: Tilapia boiled new potatoes and salad (not taco)

Weight: 147

p.s. After I wrote the blog above, I went to SparkCoach, where the topic for today was "night eating"!!! AND then they talked again about "The kitchen is closed" for after supper. I used to do that...close my kitchen...and it worked sooooooooooooooo well. But, I got out of that good habit and here I am, going around the same circle again...ok, so tonight, My kitchen is CLOSED after supper.

    I'm seconding LORILEEPAGE's comment!

Is your caloric intake enough to support what you're doing? Maybe you're not eating enough calories to lose weight - I know that sounds weird...!

In the last couple days I figured out that I needed to increase my caloric intake by 97 calories... to get me to my new "sweet spot" where my body realized it was getting enough fuel to get through my day. (This was after no change in my weight or measurements despite eating at the lower end of my caloric value - my "old sweet spot" was 500 calories below my BMR).

As maddening as it may feel - it is really trail and error.

You know I'm rooting for you and wish you success!

    Is it possible that you are needing additional calories? Your foods listed don't contain much. I binge when my body starts to feel hungry. Just checking!

    Good step..close the kitchen at night. You are back on track and ready to go! Everyone has slips along the way. You are making great progress! Have a wonderful day!

    You know, you've been so busy with family, is it possible that you were more tired than anything else, and went for food instead of an early bed-time?

I've found that this is the most likely culprit for me...

Hope you have a fabulous day today!

    I had that issue last week, breaking my rule of the closed kitchen after 8pm. I hear ya. So decision time and looks like you have made your decision. Good plan for today.

If the kitchen temps you tonight, jump on and read some blogs to get a distraction!

Power on!
