The eight week healthy weight loss challenge - version 3.0 (starting 21/05/21) - Page 12

post #221 of 396

153.2 today, and I just want to say yup to appreciating fruit, at least. I was not able to totally banish the emotional eating gremlins this week, but I was able to move them from refined carbs to berries, and I was able to keep exercising and I see my aerobic tolerance improving a lot. Now I need to restart the compulsive 3 liters a day of water (I live in the desert, so it's not actually excessive here) and see if I can count a few calories again - that helped soooo much once I got through the first few days of crazy confused hunger. It's hard to make myself do that again when the gremlins are jumpy. Going to keep very very busy this week too and not wallow, and I know that helps. I'm going to try to post a little each day, and I'd love to read more from others too - I think the way this thing works for me is the company and shared work.

yikes.

 

i got into some jelly beans, which tend to be a really really bad snack. 

 

i am going to make a point to refresh my supply of gum. that gets me through the sugar cravings.

 

doctor appointment tomorrow. in the back of my mind all these past weeks has been the outside outside chance that i'm pregnant, and i've used this as an excuse to eat some extras. if i find out for sure that i'm not, i am going to redouble my efforts. my weight has been creeping up. i could tolerate 141, but 144 is starting to get too high for my comfort level.

 

also i'm chronically constipated. going to try to eat beans every single day. starting today!!

183 for me.  

 

Slowly, slowly going in the right direction.  I need to hold on to my small losses and not rebound.  I know my weight loss right now is stress related and I have a tendency to bounce up and down when I am feeling stressed.  Vegetables, water and skip the snacking....and maybe I'll see 181 next week.  orngbiggrin.gif

186.2. Gah!

208.  Not a big surprise since I took a 4-day holiday weekend.   We did fairly well in food choices considering we were on holidays though an  icecream and cookies did sneak in.  Holidays are a bit tricky because in my mind they often are associated with treats.  Back to healthy home and losing the 2 lbs I gained while away.

No change this morning (blue team). :-( I have begun weight training again and not eating after 7 pm, so hopefully that makes a difference this coming week.

211.4  Back to where I was 3 weeks ago. I missed out on some of my exercise, which I think made the difference.

post #233 of 396

Sorry for the delay on posting the numbers this week - yesterday was super crazy and stressful on many levels.  It was my day off of running too, so I was off my game.  It is so crazy that after running for such a short time it feels like my day is just not right without it.  I also let the stress eating urges get the better of me for the first time in a long time, and I am worried that will be detrimental for my week :( The good news is I got out of bed on time and had a great run this morning and since my shoes are elderly and dying, hubby is taking the kids so I can go to a run shop and get properly fitted for real running shoes that hopefully won't give me blisters like the current ones are doing!

Thanks for posting BareFootMama and congratulations on great progress this week.

post #235 of 396

Thanks!  I am just hoping it is legitament progress and not water weight.

post #236 of 396

I'm thinking about dropping out. I have been so wishy washy on my eating and excersize. I was back up to 191 this morning after being at 188 most of the week. I had a few drinks yesterday which happens maybe twice a year! I really paid for it though.

TrekkinGirl, don't give up.   I am slowly creeping along myself but at least the thought of weekly weigh-ins keep me a near the track.

 

We can't all be losing pounds easily.  Being human and not losing consistently is what most people experience.  Those who lose consistently through their determination and dedication are the inspiration.  They can do it, so can you.  Losing a little at a time is still progress.

Thank you huha for the inspiring words. Trekkin, I'm just limping along myself here - for the second time in a row! If you want, I'd make a commitment to just post daily, the good the bad and the ugly, just to help maintain consciousness... at least, that's the idea I have to help get me through the last weeks with less self-criticism...  

 

Today's post for my own self-inspiration and responsibility: had an a.w.f.u.l. night with my son last night and took a pass on biking him to school this am. Rushing myself out the door now though to bike to pick him up and take him swimming. Ate some needless junk, but had a healthy tuna and carrot lunch, and bought a watermelon in case more emotional eating comes knocking at my door, so I've got something to work on other than bread and refined sugar. In general, feeling pretty sad and low, but trying to remember that lack of sleep always makes me feel sick and sad, and tomorrow is another day with more caffeine in it. Anyone else?

I added weight over my weekend trip to WV - I'm at 179.6

post #240 of 396

I'm so there with you trekkingirl... I'm bouncing in a 5 lb range and it is driving me nuts. It doesn't help that I'm tired and cranky and stressed - none of which is good for weight losgreensad.gif.
