The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"

I am up 3 pounds - I am not surprised - |
I can get through the day - but, bingeing after dinner.
I wil try again. Next week - on Tuesday - We will leave for Cape Cod. I really need to have some food sanity before I go - or....

Up, down, up, down. |
I know what I need to do. Just gotta do it.

It's great that you are staying under 200. Hold on tight to what works for you. You will be fine. |
I am with you in this.
thank you friend!

And you are right - it IS great and I need to focus on THAT!~|

question is if you know what to do, your body responds well when you do those things, and you can do it anytime you set your mind to it; why don't you? Obstinate? Lazy? Too much to think about? You won't fit into your life as easily if you do? Pressure from others? Stress escape? Cramming your feelings back down so you don't have to deal with them? Don't really care about your health or weight? Don't really believe that your weight reflects on your health? Or some other reason? I have been following an online challenge where she tells us that until we discover the why of food ruling us we will always be at war with ourselves. I don't know if it will help you, but when you said that you knew what to do and didn't what she said came back to me. |
Here's a bribe. Do it for me. I would give anything to go back to the day that my body responded to cutting back on calories or exercising or both. Course I know that is not much an incentive for you, but I hope that you chose to do it while your body is still healthy and responds while you can enjoy it. No good having a skinny body when every thing else starts aching and freezing up from old age and over use.
I know I'm getting maudlin so I'll shut up now. Just ignore me. This started out being uplifting but I forgot what I was going to say or where I was going with it.
I'll just leave you with I love you just the way you are, but wish only the best of health and happiness for you and the streangth to get there.

Aren't all of us with addictions lazy and obstinant some times? Isn't food an escape for each of us at times? |
Don't we all know what we need to do to lose weight?
If each of us can find our way through these issues and have the support of those around us, we'll get firmer and deeper into our commitments to healthy living.
Krista, you are so strong that you could kick each of us i n the arse if you cared to! I will never match tour live if exercise but I sure do admire it. Still respect how hard it was for you to keep teaching even after you gained some weight back AND people love your class. You set a great example of s I'm done who keeps trying.
done on my phone in bed 'your love of exercise. nt

Thank you Paula

I appreciate your words and you're bang on ~ I and we have all of those things going on at some points in our lives. But this string really made me realize yesterday how much is going WELL for me. I'm under 200, maintaining an 80 lb loss, teaching fitness classes (and people come and ENJOY them) and I've given up a lot of crap foods in my life. I have to focus more on the positive.|
Just staying under 200 lbs for now

Good question though with lots of excellent thought-provoking questions. |
Am I lazy? Not with the exercising I do and all the part time hours I am doing so nope,lazy isn't the issue.
Pressure from others? Nope.
Crammed feelings? Not at all - nothing troubling me at all at the moment.
Don't care - nope that's not it. I care.
Very good questions, Delta. I think I'm just cruising along enjoying myself with that "stay under 200 for the summer" goal. Proud to say I've been here for 3+ months now and that's amazing for me.
Would never ignore you -- appreciate you trying to help and it helps me put into perspective that I really am doing ok!

I'm a food addict. I LOVE FOOD. Love it. |
It's a complete miracle to me that I haven't had cookies, cake, donuts, chocolate since March 22. But certainly I'm eating more of other foods that I haven't deemed as "off limits".
So that's really the crux - I hover between 193-199 because I am a food addict and right now, I guess I don't feel like changing.
Thanks for helping me look at this closer.
Up and down

My hips have been killing me this month, I have a stress injury from overdoing on vacation. I haven't walked nearly as much and only been to the gym twice or three times all month. Sad. I also got into the habit of having a bowl of cereal at night because it would be 10 hours from dinner to bedtime since I wasn't sleeping much. Scale went up 10 pounds in a month. I also didn't plan or journal my food, just went with what was easy, usually sandwiches and there was quite a bit of ordering from a store that has a catering thing of sorts. We can call in your order for the number of people that are being fed and pickup a meal at the time I specify. Since it was half a mile from my husband's office it was easy for he or our daughter to pick it up as they headed home. They have only a few choices to pick from each day Lots of mashed potatoes, fried okra, fried squash and fried chicken for those choices, but I didn't care. It was about all I could do to take care of the house, the kids, and the garden and get it put up so it wouldn't go to waste. |
This week I cut out eating at night and instead took something to help me sleep. I also planned meals and cooked them myself. I'm down two today.
8 sticks of butter!

I am so sorry you are having pain. I do better when I plan and journal, too. It's challenging to get back on plan & routine.
So glad about the 2 pounds!
2 lbs gone is great

and it shows you exactly what to do to get the rest of the gain off again. Hope you can get back to the gym! I know how much you have enjoyed it in the past.|

up. Was 195, have gained 16 in 2 months but 6 of that in a wek. |
part is eating easier, higher sodium foods and part is fluid in my legs and feet, which is a first in a very long time. My grocery list today is reflecting a low sodium, real food eating plan. Hard to do with one hand but i am going to try.
The 170s are where i want to be again.
You will get there
Posted by Krista on 8/9/2017, 4:08 pm, in reply to "Re: Weigh in Wednesday..."
You've done it before and you've done it again. I believe in you.|
Oh, Shirley that sounds
Posted by Delta on 8/9/2017, 1:00 pm, in reply to "Re: Weigh in Wednesday..."
so disheartening and so familiar. I can't eat sandwiches or fast food more than very rarely without a gain. Even if it is just fluid it feels awful. I hope with healthy eating it comes off as quickly as it went on. |
Posted by Cindy on 8/9/2017, 9:16 am, in reply to "Weigh in Wednesday..."
I am down another pound this week! Total gone 60 pounds!! |
Onward I march!!
Four sticks of butter just went out the window!!!

Congratulations! Uuuuuummmmmph. Ouch. *picking myself up and continuing a more sedate happy dance, but still much happiness, none the less*|
