Week Two - GAINED! - Motivation, where are you?

Monday, May 17, 2010

OK - Before I even start, this is going to be a self depreciating kinda blog. Last week was Team Building in my department. You see, we underwent an "Organizational Evolution" - translate to mean that everyone will be doing something different than they are doing right now. Last week, we spent Teambuilding to learn our new team mates, and just bond together. The company provided the majority of the meals, and I felt that I did not overeat - even if they weren't always what I would have chosen otherwise. I was twice as active as a typical week just "pod dwelling" (read - sitting in my cube, doing computer work) and I GAINED! I think I don't have the right mindset to lose. So today I ate my typical PB and toast breakfast - but transitioned to Slim Fast for lunch and afternoon snack. Just looking at my remaining calories - I think I might be over based on my planned dinner. I am starting to feel frustrated and have begun to ask myself - at age 46 - am I just destined to be always be fat? Because face it - regardless of what I call it - I am fat. I look fat, I feel fat, I am fat. I get so frustrated with it all - I just want a glimmer of success.

Really need to wrap my head around a new mindset . . . .

    You're not destined to always be fat. (This is coming from someone who thinks they are...)

    Try switching up breakfast. You're eating a lot of calories that aren't going to keep you full until lunch. Peanut Butter for a slice of toast gives you almost 16 grams of fat, which for me is half of the low end of my grams allowed PER DAY. I have a cup of cereal with milk and it gives me 3 grams of fat, and 1 gram more of protein than JUST the PB on your toast.

    I think your portion size is fantastic -- but calories is not everything. Keep your fat grams on the low side and Keep it up!

    How low are your calories? You have hardly eaten today. I think it really is about the mindset, that is why I have failed in the past. Keep your head up, you can do it!
