I’m getting a bit tired of this new life style change. I’ve been so bad this past week. I’ve eaten out, had cake 3 days in a row, I’ve eaten chips and candy and the bad part of all of this, I HAVE LOVED IT!!! I am missing these goodies. Now my stomach has not missed these goodies. I have had troubles going poop, my tummy has hurt and I am tired and touchy and I know it’s because of all the “goodies” I have been eating. My body was doing so good with the life style change but my mind loved the idea of eating whatever was offered this past week.

I have to start all over tomorrow. Get back into my exercise routine, back into eating all the right stuff and I know that it’s going to be like starting over because my mind and taste buds were so happy.

I need some help, I need some support, I need you guys to tell me this happens but I can start over. I can, right? Will one week of mess up be so hard to undo? I’m thinking yep it will be but I did so good for 12 weeks I can do it again, right? God I really hope so.

I so want to go and buy a new pair of shorts, I want some new panties too, both a size smaller. Right now I’ve lost enough my pants are uncomfortable but not enough for a new size. I’m still fat people and I don’t want to be. I have to weigh in on the 3rd of May, boy am I worried this time. More so then ever before.

I’m human, like everyone but some of you are so good, you stick to your life style change and aren’t tempted or let nothing upset your cart. Me, well I guess I can’t resist temptation. Jodi has lost 165 lbs…she is amazing. Heck I can’t loss 20 lbs without screwing up. Oh well I can’t beat myself up, I guess just start over and go from here. I can do it, I have to.

So that means tomorrow I work out harder then I’ve done, I need to get my 10,000 steps in and I will keep my calories at 1300 or so. I will drink enough water to have to pee 10 times a day, I will eat enough fiber and roughage that I poop and I will stay away for all the sugar, carbs and all that I know is bad for me. I can do this, right? RIGHT!!!

I hope you all had a great weekend and a great new week coming up. Good luck on your life style changes, I really hope you are doing better then I did last week.

Take care my friends. God Bless you all!!!

Of course this is normal. Not all weeks can be amazing! Besides, it was your birthday, you are allowed cake! I say so!

I haven't lost anything in over a month. But I don't watch what goes in my mouth.

You have been doing great. Don't get too hard on yourself. You can do this, and your weigh in will be fine.

I also like the idea of you doing it more than once a month. I think it will be more beneficial to you. You can see how you are doing and tweek things.

Don't get down! You have come so far! Remember that!

You are doing great!!
I believe you can't completly deprive yourself of sweets because then your mind/body crave them so much more. I keep a bowl of fresh fruit and candy out at all times in our house. (I know a lot of people are going, WHAT??) it works, the kids only have a couple pieces a week and so do I. They naturally just go for the fruit, because the candy is always there.
Thats my secret that I use :) And it does take a while for your mind and body to adjust to that it is always there.

I photo tagged you on my blog. Come check it out and play along!
Happy Monday :)

Hey, you have to cut yourself some slack once in a while and a birthday week is one of those times... I don't think you'll have any trouble getting back on track because you said it yourself... you feel like crap! Have you ever researched... are there ANY good carbs??? Cause that would totally screw me up... not having my bread... but I have started making low-fat bread... can that be so bad???

Julie, Thanks so much for your sweet encouraging comment today! Means more to me than you'll know.
And as for the weight loss...don't give up there either. I am NOT one of those that the weight slips off easily...oh no. I have to work at it. And, I love to eat, and eat at night. Food is my one comfort. Sigh. So, I have gained weight back during this process only to have to get back on track and try again. It's a life long process the way I look at it. And, I caution you not to make exercise your "god" in this weight loss. Exercise to make you feel better and your body a healthier temple for God's use, not to become an idol. I know you aren't...but it's a balance. Ask God to control your eating and your portions, and your exercising. It will come off. And this's permanent!!!! I am rooting for you lady. WE can do this...together. :)

Now, yes you booboo'd but it's ok. The good part is, you have shocked your body and as you go back to the life style change, it may give your metabolism a boost. I've read that after so long, your body gets used to your way of eating, thus causing you to plateau in weightloss because it has adjusted. Just a thought.

Anyway, the best thing about a sunrise? It means it is a new day to start over! And you are doing awesome so keep it up :-)

Hey Lady! I just found your blog from a Friday Follow post- I'm now a follower- and I just want to say that no matter what- you will have bad days/weeks, but you learn what your triggers are and you learn how to change those as you go along. Good luck!
