Losing momentum!!

Friday, March 19, 2010

I was definitely slowing down my motor even before my back started hurting and I had to take a little rest. I feel like I may be getting the momentum back but it is a fragile one. It is harder then I thought to be challenging a guy to weight loss. They can lose weight so much faster or so it seems. I think he is better at putting himself first. I still find myself giving in and giving up when there is a challenge in the way of my workouts. This month I have put on 2 lbs, well this morning it was more like 1lb but still it will be harder for me to have a loss for the month if I am constantly fighting the up down scale. I am thinking of joining another website as well to help with improving my running and more individual nutritional help. I feel lost not having a "what you can eat" list. I don't know what is the problem with me being able to choose my food. I am hitting a wall when it comes to food choices. How can I learn to make better food choices? How can I learn how to eat more regularly? I hate to admit I need a little hand holding but maybe I do for a little bit. I wonder though if it is falling back into the same old "dieting" trap. Ugh! This is a hard thing! I feel like I am doing a good job working hard but success is hard to come by. Why??? Looking for some more momentum!!!

    Hang in there..spring is almost here! We don't use the word "diet" in our house. We use lifestyle change. I am major grazer especially at night. I went into major boo-hoo mode when I stopped losing weight and after 16 pounds, I still didn't go down a pant size- but I was eating more. This week I did double workouts in the gym and ate more veggies. I went to the farmer's market ( which I can't get to because it closes before I leave work) and got the most delicious lettuce ever- I never knew a salad could taste so good! I also bought greens to juice. The I picked up the 100 calorie popcorn packs, clementines and sugar free fudgesicles. I am hoping this keeps me away from the carbs. As far as food lists go, I have found some great ideas that other people have posted- like in what is your favorite snack. Food choices seem less limited than I imagined. Good luck to you!
