Still hanging on

Sorry, I don’t have much time tonight to post, because I got up at 4:30 this morning to take someone to the airport for any early flight. So I need to get to bed! Basically, I’m still hanging on – but just barely. My eating is getting more sloppy and to be 100 percent honest, I think this weekend trip is looming over me eating wise and is wearing down my resolve. I know, I know how stupid that is. I know how important it is for me to overcome that type of attitude and thinking. I know how much that thinking has contributed to my past failures and how the reversal will contribute to my success this time. I know. But I’m finding it more difficult than I imagined to truly reverse that thinking. But I’m trying. And I’m going to keep trying. Tomorrow, even though it may be my only really good eating day for the week, I’m going to stay on track. Going to start the morning with an omelet or turkey burger. Going to eat a Lunchable for lunch. Going to have some veggies for dinner. And I’m going to by some healthy snacks to munch on while in the car – sugar free jello, sugar free pudding, apple slices, fresh grapes, etc. It may just be one day – but more than the calorie savings, it will help me know that I can change my attitude.

    I;m heading out of town this weekend too. My friend just told me to pack my swim suit, but i still found myself downing a bunch of m&ms. I always start the day off right then after 4 or 5 i tend to crash, along with my emotions, and energy. Maybe I’m not eating enough in the beginning of the day, or maybe i need to take my lunch time and take a power nap.

    I’ll figure it out, then it will be much easier to break these habits…or it could just be a sugar addiction that i feed every day at the same time…anyhow. Long comment but I completely relate on this one =) Good luck and have fun =)

    Hey there. Have you been following my blog lately? I have been using a calorie monitor thing. This time around I seriously think you would benefit from around 1600 calories a day. Some will cringe and say that is too many. But at this point in my day (0900am) I have already burned 784 calories just from sleeping (12am-6:30am), getting ready for work and coming to work.

    The body burns calories just to function. I think you are not getting enough on your ‘good’ days and so you are not seeing a loss on your weigh ins. This could be part of what is affecting your motivation.

    You have done so well…I don’t want to see you quit at this point. I am your personal cheerleader. YAY! Go Laura! Give me an L…L…Give me an A….A…lol, you get the point 🙂

    I agree with Christy – I have around 1500 calories a day and have cheese every day! 😀

    Hang in there – sending hugs your way – have a good weekend!!

    Have a good weekend and HANG ON. Keep thinking about your blog tagline. Its ok to have a little indulgence, but just remember, hunger is not an emergency. None of these foods are going extinct (can you tell this is what I always tell myself?). If you mess up, its ok. Its like getting one flat tire and fixing it and moving on. If you mess up once and just mess up the whole weekend, its like getting ONE flat tire and then stabbing the rest of them yourself, because what the heck, there’s one flat anyway. See how that doens’t make sense?

    Hang in there. You are doing great. This is hard. If it wasn’t, everyone would be healthy and fit. Everyone has bad days, but you have to just dust yourself off and try again. Good luck!

    Good luck and have fun!! I truly beleive that losing weight is 50% mental and 50% action. At least for women. Our heads just get in the danged way sometimes!

    You know what you gotta do – I find when I think too much, I can come up with 101 reasons why not to do something I should. So I just kinda put myself on auto-pilot and just do it! You can too!
