emoticon as we wrap up days 21 - 30 Concious eating
I found pondering the issues helpful to reinforce what works well for me; most particularly to choose foods that satisfy and nourish me both physically and emotionally, to savor and enjoy them, guilt free and that it is ok to enjoy all kinds of foods when I decide it's appropriate for me. I don't have to put food on a pedestal and only focus on food but I should also not totally ignore it. I am more satisfied when I enjoy eating :)

my best support was from Gary, he said he would support me no matter and he does..he never brings junk food home and he is always eater to split meals with me and share dessert..the section of the book that said to tell people what you want..that helped me get my feelings out and he was right there and still is...that has been huge for me....one other thing he has never said anything about what I eat, he has praised me every step of the way and how nice it is when he tells others of what I have accomplished...That's really motivation for me to stick with my plan and keep the weight off..
also he has told me many times over the years he loves me no matter what I weigh...

Kitt, u r so right!!! we have to relearn everything with food, even the good times!

Warm, u got it! I'm sure i'll be yammering my stress mangment stuff... I have found that chatting here about it (usually via blogs or team discussions) really helps me crystalize my thoughts... I love having people and a place we can talk about these things. I just don't have that in the rw... dh supports me but his eyes start rolling back in his head if I really start talking details.... LOL ;)

I think learning new ways to manage stress or coping skills is a great idea, not just for rough times but for good times as well, I mean like when we go to partys weddings we are so happy and full of joy, I can over eat then too, so learning how to handle those times as well takes skill and effort

Proud of you for making a plan and sticking with it, and for being flexible to adjust when you know you've had enough. That's something I need to learn. I'd love to hear what you learn about stress management and what works for you.

emoticon emoticon emoticon Thanks everyone, still stressed but staying focused... hoping I'll feel like i'm on a roll again sometimes (instead of urge to eat)




emoticon now's a gr8 time to review & adjust as we wrap up day 20!


emoticon Day 20 Checkup & Adjustments

i'm going to focus on what I can do instead of the scale...



emoticon These goals are working for me... will continue

when I get up, each morning, I'm going to commit to myself and my journey each & every day...

~ to spend time on the 100 day study

~ to drink 6+ cups water a day (plus other liquids & food liquids)

~ and to make the time necessary to find & make & eat good food... (goal is to consistently stay in mealplan ranges :)



Scratched, Tossed, Not right now...
~ to move! exercise min 10 mins minimum, 5 days a week (strength & more time on water aerobics days)... Nope... didn't make this, not feeling like I wanna... so scratch this one...




emoticon that's it, not adding anything right now,

already feel stressed and at my limit.

oh, wait... that is actually my other/next focal point ~ stress management.

emoticon New goal, start exploring stress management.
start learning so I can strategize a plan of action... work on this as able.

I'm so glad we're doing this together! it's Sparking me & helping me focus and get going again :)

emoticon Day 7, I can do this! emoticon
Day 7 really rang a bell with me... because... I have a hard time believing it, even saying it... so this will take more practice...


emoticon i can do this

in the past, i was not used to cheering for me... i think we are all too often taught not to toot our own horn... and not only that but over time, as I tried to diet and failed so many times, i kind of quit believing along the way. It is still hard and I am still struggling, so I think this is a truly important skill to practice. Sometimes we just need to fake it til we make it, and if we keep repeating this mantra to ourselves, eventually we will believe it... (think click red shoes together and repeat "there's no place like home" Dorothy and b4 u know it you'll be home :)

emoticon I CAN DO THIS!

I can do this.
because I matter

I can do this
because I used to fail/quit but I am different now, I am committed!

I can do this
because I am committed to me
because I am worth it.

I can do this
because I refuse to quit

I can do this
because I will work each and every day
to make healthy choices
because I am worth it

I can do this
because this is a part of my life
I am still learning to walk

I really can do this.

thanks everyone!

emoticon looking back 1 week already!

well, here we are nearly a week finished (after I go to sleep tonight :) I really like some of the skills from this week; particularly:

i used to be that way, but now i'm different and do _____ this instead

protect my program, from me, events & other people

it's ok to use wider road (guidelines) when needed, just don't drive into the ditch.

take steps daily to stay motivated and believe I CAN DO THIS!
choo choo, not chew chew!!!

because I am worth it.

emoticon 3 days so far, so good...

would almost call that a roll! it hasn't been easy, they've been tough days. And in the past I would have given up on several things, but I am different now. I made healthy dinners even when I was tired instead of takeout. I got up and exercised. I did it anyway, because I am worth it.

I am glad we're working through the book. It has given me the little bit of extra umph & determination to push through!

emoticon Freggies!
I used to let freggies rot while I ate junk food... but now I'm different. Now I buy what I can use and try to eat it before it spoils or freeze it for later!

emoticon I luv! luv! luv! this idea!!!

I used to be that way, but now I'm different!!!
I used to skip breakfast but now I eat it and my day is better!

What I really like is that we can use this positive skill all the time... When things come up that tempt us, we can talk back in our head....

Yes, I used to stop at the drive thru on the way home from work but NOW I'm Different! Now I have a snack after work that tides me over to dinner. I can soooo do this!!!
