Sunday weigh-in #15

If I turn my scale sideways then maybe you won't see.....


Ahhhhhhh! I knew this was going to happen. I had an awful week of eating shitty food. I bought junk from vending machines which is something I never do. And I don't really care about the number on the scale but I know that I didn't make the right choices. I'm disappointed in myself for that.

Okay blog readers, I'm counting on you this week to pick me up. I'm in a slump and need some words of wisdom.

Thanks!

Ouch. Big difference. Could you be bloated? Are you still on the pill and skipping your periods or do you have them regularly? What did you eat yesterday? If lots of bread/carbs the day before, could be just a fluke.

I started writing down everything I eat (2011 version though - an iPhone/Android app called LoseIt). Many experts have always said that was one of the best ways and I believe that they were right. First, I couldn't believe how many calories I was consuming on a daily basis. I under-estimated my calories consumption greatly before the LoseIt app. It helped me greatly with what a "normal" calorie intake was like. Also, I "count" calories by a week so that I don't get stressed if I overdo it one day. I then added in exercise (I mentioned on another post that I had a wake up call when I got diagnosed with hypertension) in the form of vinyasa yoga. I'm 47 and I steadily gained about 5 lbs a year for the last 10 years. I've lost about 15 in the last year. I want to lose about 20-25 more but I'm already so happy with myself! Being a healthcare professional, I knew all the "facts" about weight loss but couldn't execute. But, it is like you always knew. Make a lifestyle change, don't go on a diet. I know you can do it because if I did, you can too!

Doesn't seem like much..I think I wouldn't pay attention to the scale and rather your perception of what you ate. It seems you knew you weren't eating healthy. I would make eating healthy and sticking to those goals rather than a number on a scale. Whatever number comes up is what it is. But what you do day to day is how you live.

Aw, don't let it get you down, have you joined Spark people? It's a free way to keep track of food and exercise etc, I love it.

The problem with dieting (even when you call it a "lifestyle change") is that it doesn't address why you got overweight in the first place. You've said you eat emotionally. Making up rules, following rules that someone else has made up, or counting calories doesn't address that.
