fessin’ up time

okay… the last couple of weeks have been hard and this means that I’m struggling with the whole “losing weight” thing.  I don’t know what shifted for me but I’ve been craving my old habits.  Pizza, coke, pasta and the ilk have called to me from the grocery store shelves and I have heeded their call.  This weekend was particularly bad and I ate extremely poorly.  The only upshot of this behavior is that it hasn’t totally caught up to me on the scale yet.  I haven’t lost but nither have I gained.  It’s going to catch up with me soon though.

I have been going to the gym.  I’ve even added some running to my time on the treadmill.  This time, however, has been shortening.  The goal is to get 50 minutes of cardio when I’m at there but lately… 45 minutes… 40 minutes is all I’m sticking it out for.   This has to change but I’m really not wanting to.  I have my gym bag in the car right now and I know I should head to they gym after work.  I should dedicate myself to getting my cardio time in for the day.  I really don’t want to.  Even though I don’t want to I will but I won’t enjoy it!!!

Current weight: 266   Let’s hope this number drops next week!

    I think that this is pretty normal. It usually means you’re really board. Is there something else you can try doing to shake it up a little?

    I am having issues as well.

    I hear ya. I’m in a similar boat.

    You can only go from where you are right now. It’s not how many times you stumble it’s that you get up one more time then you fall down.

    I totally agree with Loralee, and I think it’s a good sign that you’ve recognized that you are dealing with temptations. Just think, a year ago (even less)pizza, coke, etc. were not temptations, but part of everyday life. You’ve come a long way baby!

    P.S. My current healthy snack is sugar snap peas–they are really healthy, and satisfy my “all foods need to be cold” craving without giving me a sugar high, and then low like ice-cream.

    I have consumed more junk food in the past 4 months than I did during my pregnancy and possibly two years prior to it. I have cravings but just that sugar is so handy and gives me a buzz that I keep consuming it. Blessed be a recent trip showed that I have 15 pounds till my pre-pregnancy weight. When I think of it as I only need to lose 15 pounds it makes it seem reasonable. I think that it is great that you haven’t gained any and you might find that you want to eat better. You only eat junk so long before you crave veggies! Kudos on how well you have done and for being honest.
