Friday weigh in.

Friday, August 14, 2009

I should start off with saying I'm still at 155 today, so no weight loss for me this week.

Then as I search my soul, sort of dramatic, I have had a hard time this week not poking food into my mouth as I am preparing meals...this is an old habit that I thought was gone but it has reared it's ugly head again....there goes that voice in my head that says "see it takes more than 21 one days to break a habit" I have been at this for over 3 years....
I'm not beating myself up over this just looking at the issue openly and honestly, I have complete control over the food that goes in to this body....

I know it's been a very hectic week since my return from vacation, at home and work....lots of drama at work...some at home too, with family issues... and just getting back in to my organized life...
Those who know me know I'm a very structured person. I like organization. I like things planned out. I want things to run smoothly and orderly. I don't like to be rushed or behind on my duties.....I should have been in the ....I would have been a great drill sergeant.

funny thing is I did try to enlist years ago when I was 18 but was too over weight...

The way I'm going to handle these issues.

1. chew some sugar free gum when I'm cooking or chew on carrots.
2. try and relax before I tackle my cooking chores, time to go back to deep breathing for 5 minutes when I get home from work.
3. read more of the new book I start "Life is Hard ..Food is Easy" (it' has great insight to emotional eating"
4. realize I am not now nor will I ever be perfect, the world will not turn the way I want it too.
5. know that I have made huge strides in getting to a healthy life style, no matter what happens I have ben able to maintain my weight loss.
6. I will not let anything stand in my way of living this healthy life style.
7. remind myself each day how lucky I am to have the support of my sparkpeople friends and my family.
8. find time for fun and happiness, it's my choice each day if I'll be happy or not.
9. continue to eat healthy and exercise even when I don't want too.
10. ask for help....this is my hardest issues, asking for help...I'm the one who helps, so I find it difficult to ask....

Hope everyone is having a healthy Friday.

this is some of my family at Peele Island, where I was for part of our vacation.

    you maintained another week! how fantabulous!!!

    you maintained despite a tough week with a bit of drama @ home & @ work!
    despite a bit of erratic emotions
    despite the urge to eat while cooking that was retriggered!!!

    pretty dang gr8!

    i also appreciate how you have honestly looked at this, how you feel and recognize your struggles. it's the pathway to real change & you have a good strategy there for moving past that old habit again.

    well done sweetie :)

    Your list looks like it will take you to another level. It is great to hear you say you caught yourself in an old habit. It is in the catching that we can change the behaviour. Celebrate your wisdom, my friend and have a great weekend.

    Love the list! And I know what you mean about being the one that helps and not the one receiving help! That's being selfish, though! Give others the chance to have the same blessings you receive by giving!

    Hugs! Beverly

    Who is that skinny lady in the orange blouse in the picture? emoticon

    Excellent post, Kitt. You're doing all the right things, and you are tackling this exactly the way you should be. Keep looking forward (healthy for a lifetime) with a very, very occasional peek back (to remember how bad you felt at your highest weight, plus to remind yourself how far you have come). You are doing great, and you're going to be alright. The fact that you noticed you're sliding back into an old habit is excellent and I hope you realize that. We can't change our behaviors until we know we're doing them. You are there, girl. Pat yourself on the back since I can't reach you from here. LOL
