STEP `1: Acknowledge the problem coz u can't fix what you don't acknowledge! I "own" this one!

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Well, here’s the facts:
I lost 22 lbs from Dec. 22,09 to March 20, 2010.
Went from 221 to 194. (I had previously lost 5 lbs last October 09.)
I plateaued in April and didn’t lost a single fraction of a lb all month. I did stay on track with my eating.
May came and I seriously derailed! NO excuses, no justifications; I just quit eating like I should and to be straight out honest I went back to old habits like junk food, extra portions, and even drinking Mtn. Dew!

Now the Mtn. Dew thing was like playing with FIRE!

Prior to Spark I had this awful serious addiction to Mtn. Dew and would drink 10 cans a day sometimes. This stuff is like a drug. LOL It made me fat along with eating junk. I would go days at a time and drink my weight in the stuff and hardly eat because I would rather drink Mtn. Dew then eat. I walked around in a “fog”(didn’t address that truth of what it did to me mentally until after I joined Spark and was giving it up)!! So, yes in May I went back to this craziness! The last 2 wks I drank 12-24 ozs a day and ‘yes’ that is a far cry from 120 ozs but there are some foods --- some drinks you can’t even have in moderation because they are TRIGGER foods and a little leads to allot and allot leads to destructions and sabotage!

I used to do 1700 calories a day of this stuff (multiply that times 30 days a month!) 51,000 calories of sugar!

What is so bad about rekindling the old “love affair” with Mr. Mtn. Dew is that he triggers old love affairs with Mr. Doritoes and Miss Lil Debbie and Mr. Butter Popcorn! So the 5 of us had quite a little party! emoticon BUT …….. Mr. Scales brought this party to a screeching halt! emoticon
He was quite the party pooper coz I put on 7 stinkin’ lbs.
YEAH 7!!
3 days ago on MONDAY I weighed 201.4
So let’s just say May was a bad month!


I have a plan…. I will blog about that tomorrow. I not only have a plan….. I am doing it! NO more planning without some action!

So as Dr. Phil says “You can’t fix what you don’t acknowledge; you have to own it” Well I admit, acknowledge, confess, own this and now let’s fix it!
Tune in tomorrow!

(notice my little trickery on myself of commitment up there in the last comment.. this is part of my new plan to blog everyday LOL) I told you tune in tomorrow now I have to do it!

    Good for you! I'm looking forward to reading your future blog posts.

    And congrats on a couple of points. Congrats on losing the weight you have. Congrats on recognizing that you were slipping back into old habits. And big congrats on changing your ways now before you regained all the weight you worked hard to lose.

    You can do this! I can't wait to hear about your plans.

    So nice to have a blog from you:) I can't wait to read more. I've never been a pop drinker so I can't relate but I had a daily appointment with Mr. Kit Kat and Mrs. Reese's Cups (notice I said AND not OR). June is going to rock!

    emoticon For owning up to what happened. We live and learn, sometimes it just takes a bit more learning before we "get it". I know I will never be able to drink a regular Pepsi again, and I don't want to. It had me in it's clutches for far too long. I haven't had one since August '09

    You're right. June is going to be GREAT!

    I'm glad that you have had a chat with Mr. Mtn Dew and company. Remind Mr. Dew that you are the one in control and that your relationship with Mr. Dew is toxic for your health and well being. You own your own control. Toss Mr. Dew to the curb with all his other friends.

    Can't wait to hear your plan!

    I love this blog because it's your truth and it's you acknowledging everything that made you get off track. What I'm most impressed with is that even though you indulged in your Mt. Dew, Doritos, etc. etc. you were still on SparkPeople! If it weren't for you telling us in this blog that May wasn't your best month, I would have never known because you were always on here giving everyone Positive feedback and support! You're such a strong lady! So you fell off the wagon for a bit - Oh well! You've set a goal for yourself and that's to get right back on track for June! I'm proud of you for not throwing in the towel.

    Memorial Day weekend is going to stink for me. There will be BBQ's, get-togethers, etc. that'll tempt me! But hopefully I'll hold strong and say NO! :) What about you? How do you say "No"?!

    I look forward to your upcoming daily blogs! emoticon

    I am on the edge of my seat waiting for your blog tomorrow! I was having thoughts of "taking it easy" in June but no more! I am going to keep doing what I have been doing... living this healthy lifestyle. Thanks for the motivation!!!

    I completely understand your Mt Dew addiction triggering other junk foods. Mine was Coke... regular, sugar filled Coca Cola. I used to be in the habit of grabbing a coke and a candy bar every time I checked out at Wal Mart... Now that was a hard habit to break!

    Can't wait to read your future blogs!
