Ama and Hope, thanks for the well-wishes.
Mern and Jenn, I totally feel your pain losing the same few pounds over and over. If I were pounding my head against the wall, I would learn that it's not a good idea and I would stop hurting my body. Why can't I apply the same concept to eating the wrong food?
1. Try to average 1650/day for the week. way off.
2. Get back to logging everything every day, even the bad stuff. yes
3. Take my meds 2x/day. yes
4. When I start to grab a high calorie, high sugar snack, make a better choice. yes.*
ok, so in the a.m. before I made my goals I ate Oreo's. After I ate them and logged them is when I made the goal to stop eating high sugar, high calorie snacks. That I did. But then I later in the evening I was so starving, and I didn't know what else to have for a snack, so I grabbed some Cheez-Its.
Those two things made my calories for the day sky-high. So I need to modify #4 to read "When I start to grab junk food
, make a better choice."
One snack that I recently found was little mini rice cakes that are apple cinnamon flavored. They are really good! Crunchy, sweet, and you can have quite a few for not many calories. I need to buy more of those.
And tonight it's going to be sky-high again because we are having Panda Express for dinner. We rarely get it, and when dh says I can go get it, I can't turn it down. I will just have to make up for it some other way. There's always the dreaded "E" word.
(beware, men) Oh, and I shouldn't have weighed myself and beaten myself up over my weight gain up to 238 the other day. The next day was the start of ttom for me, and I always go up several lbs during that week. Already today it's 236.8, so I know by the end of the week it will be better.
Welcome to the group, smartday.
