Vija I can relate so much to alot of your titles there. I know that is something I need to work on as well (my self esteem). But I know we can do it. And we will both be in a better place emotionally and physically!

I read through your journal and posted a comment, and what I can say without any shadow of a doubt is that your energy, commitment and drive is very evident, AND YOU WILL do it!!!!!! You are making some great strides, and even when they scale didn't budge, you kept working at it, tweeking your plan to make it work and you were determined to make it work. now you are reaping the rewards.

Thank you for your support for me. I feel like I am getting in a better place, and I have made some great strides toward that as well. My lowest was years ago, and just thinking about that makes me even happier knowing that I can and WILL get there too!

day 161. A great workout! And I have to come clean...

Today I got right to exercising. I know that if I wait on the weekends, the time gets shortened, and maybe not as intense. Well, wow I really did the exercise! Hit the stairmaster today and did 45 minutes. the last 15 was done in intervals and I was really sweating! felt really good.

At night I have gotten into the habit of having buttered popcorn while watching Amazing Race, and today I fought the craving/habit and just watched the show without anything!

Limited my snacking during the day.

I am really proud of myself!

And I have to come clean... when I lost my focus I gained back alot that I had lost. I was 3# short of my all time high,. I didn't want to change my WISH clippie, it just made me so sad. BUT I am so happy that I am doing good again. I am down 4# this week and I feel great about it. I am going to change the clippie to accuarately reflect where I am. Then as I loose weight, I can change the clippie and be proud!

Vija, you can definitely do it. You have done it once before and have to dig deep and find that drive again but it sounds like you are on the right track.

All in all it sounds like you had a great OP weekend!

Day 162. Thanks to Desiree I got up and exercised!

so Desiree, this one is for you! This morning I set the alarm early so I could work out, but of course when the alarm goes off I really don't want to get up! But I thought about you and how you stuck to your plan even though the scale wasn't budging, and it motivated me to get up and get moving! so thanks so you!

Healthy choices:
woke up early and exercised. did my Wii just dance and LOVE that workout
walked at night for 1/2 hour with DS. Love talking with him, you get to learn what's on their mind
didn't snack after our walk, even though I dearly wanted to! Came up here and hit the computer instead.

Off to bed!

day 163. OK day today

today was OK. I didn't feel very good today, so I didn't do a hard work out. I did go for a long walk tonight. Although I really hate walking at night. At one point a guy started walking behind me, came out of no where and I just hate that. switched sides of street that I was walking on, but I no longer felt relaxed.

Hoping for a better day tomorrow.

Keep it up. It's hard when you gain back and "Wasted" all the hard work. For me, times like that gets dangerous because I then get frustrated and think "what's the point?". In the spring, I had been watching my eating for a bit and lost about 5 pounds and by now, have put most of that back on.

For this round, I'm focusing on making healthier choices, saying "no" to the temptations...but not always saying "no" to treats. I'm struggling valiantly against dieting....I want to make permanent changes to my eating habits. So it's small changes like "no, I really don't need to eat that much",. and "I can eat a reasonable portion at a buffet, enjoy it, and not feel sick afterwards". I do a lot of dinners and meals at work where it's plated dinners - and I am trying to train myself to eat smaller portion sizes and NOT finish everything on the table.

Last weekend I was travelling for work and was at a buffet twice. I filled my plate with more veggies and while I did eat a bit more than I should have, it was about half of what I would normally have eaten. So that was a victory.

Another thing I am going to try is to eat more frequently so I'm not starving. I'm struggling to have breakfast by 10am (still haven't had breakfast today even though it's 10 so time to pop that toast in) and then lunch and then an afternoon snack. I'm hoping it will help cut down on the portion size I "have" to have at each meal.

good choices,
had a great prepackaged lunch. Low in cal, whole wheat noodles, also had an orange and carrots.

Not so good was the chips at night.

No time to exercise, but worked long at work, so put on the miles that way!

day 165. Short again... and a day late

Late day at work, tired again. But a great choice was they brought in Pizza for lunch. Everyone had 2 pieces (they were BIG) and I only had 1! Very happy with that!

day 166. So sad....

I know this is silly!!! Watched the last show with Regis and Kelly. Oh My, I cried, and cried, and cried. I know it is very silly, but I watched him alot. Especially when I worked weekends. I would arrange my day so that I could watch the show. He did bring joy to my day, and I will really miss him!

Not alot of healthy choices today...

I'm incredibly bummed because I forgot to dvr Reeg's last day. I'm sure I would have been crying too! Sorry yesterday was a bust eating wise. It was for me yesterday as well. I did better the day before with Thanksgiving at work than I did with the leftovers yesterday. Ouch!

Difficulty logging in tonight - hope this goes through.

Computer had a virus, now back on.

Too tired to write much here or on my own blog.

But wanted to let you know back in the saddle - hi Vija - good going.

More tomorrow.

Linda
