Good morning!

I have to give a shout out to you R&M. Sounds like you have had a lot of hurdles recently. It will be OK. Will it be perfect? No, but all of us here are committed to helping each other.

I had to laugh about finishing off the junk food because I did the same thing with a bag of Cheetos.

My dh has cried "uncle" as well. He has gained 20lbs! He wants me to help him but he does not want to weigh his portions. Grrr....

I have 2 books from the library and loving Pinterest with regards to cooking and menu's.

So R&M, you are certainly among friends here. While you deal with g-f, I have to contend with low sat fat, low cholesterol, and get this under 1500mg of daily sodium for dh. That is so flipping hard!

We are all "under construction".

Thank you all for the nice replies.

MM--I agree, definitely under construction. Your family has gone through a huge life altering event with all your dh's heart stuff. Hopefully he will turn the corner soon and get to a more positive place with the food. I think in some ways it is like going through the stages of grief--at least that's how I have felt at times. Does that make sense?

I realized this morning that the best way to describe how I feel right now is toxic--from all the crap I have been consuming. I don't continuously eat poorly, but it is slowly getting worse and worse. I am starting to develop those sugar cravings again and several times I have felt like my blood sugar was out of whack. Anyhow, hopefully I am turning the corner. It's going to be a rough couple of days I think--cutting out the sugar and caffeine and empty carbs, but hopefully it won't be too painful.

Off to work. Then a workout at the Y and spaghetti squash for dinner. Have a good day.

Hi Friends usually just a lurker but wanted to say HUGs and stick to it to those who need a bit of help right now..

I am hoping to have a great finish to the week.. up to now I've lost 2.3 but want to lose a pound more by Monday which is my offical weight in for Atkins and it would put me into the 150's (159 to be exact but hey I in them!) so my plan is make sure to eat all my carbs, drink all my water and do a little excersize (like raking)

hope everyone has a fab day..

Hello everyone. Some good discussions going on around help, support and overcoming problems I see. Well done to everyone for having the strength to face their issues........it's usually when you can't face them that they escallate.

Thought I'd try and motivate us today a little by asking about treats - we all need 'em!!!

QOTD Thursday 11th April 2013

We all need little treats from time to time, whether it be something that is calorie laden, or something that upsets us medically (GF for example).......how often do you allow yourself such a treat? And do you feel it was worth the hassle and guilt afterwards??



On my diet, I get 5 to 15 syns a day to spend as I like, but they don't go far. For example 1 tbsp of light mayo is 2 syns; a Snickers bar is 15 syns. I tend to do without during the week, and have a treat at the weekend. As long as I stay within my weekly syns, I refuse to feel guilty! We also have a bit of a blow out once a month around payday...sadly this is usually a pizza from Dominoes or a meal from Burger King. I love junk food, but at least I know how to control it now! This method keeps me on track and it's obviously working as I'm now 32lb lighter than I was on 7th January.

Look forward to hearing from you all.

Aaah good question... I am on Atkins so bread, rice, pasta, and sugars are a no no for me... I've been trying to find likeable substitutes (like pizza made on cauliflower crust or low carb bread/wraps and dreamfields pasta) but sometimes nothing beats what you really want.. Iíve not really caved and had too much that Iím not supposed to but I also havenít put myself out there too far.. I have a bite of Hubs pasta or a cracker maybe a chip but to me right now itís not worth it.. I do give myself a piece of sugar free chocolate every day Ė it taste like the real thing so I feel like I am getting away with something !

For me I want a treat everday lol, but I dont allow myself that. I usually allow a couple points for an after dinner snack, and try to avoid the sweets. My go to snack is a bowl of frosted flakes with some sliced banana on top. It gives me the crunch and sweetness I am looking for all in one. I also look at it as getting another fruit in and some dairy as well. As for a real treat I try to limit it to the weekends. I dont find it a hassle because I am trying really hard to stay within my points daily. I had a big gain a couple weeks ago and am still trying to get it off.

Thanks. But just to clarify, I was at goal--and gained a bunch back. Ok, being completely honest--16 pounds. And the running is great, but I have been dealing with chronic injuries. Yes, in the big scheme of things it is all still pretty awesome, but I have back slid quite a bit from where I was, and I was very frustrated with myself. And angry. But that is what I needed to be, and now I am feeling much more on track. I don't think 16 pounds is a reasonable goal, since obviously I did not do such a great job maintaining it, but I would be thrilled to split the difference.

QOTD--I build treats into my days, or I would go crazy. When I am on plan I have a tiny bit of ice cream almost every day and that is just about it. Sometimes I have a g-f beer instead of the ice cream. The issue is when I have the beer AND the ice cream....and the seconds on the ice cream, etc. Hence the 16 pound gain.

Bigsis1970--I hope you see the 150s!

***
The frozen snickers were calling me at work today. It was like a siren's call..But I resisted! One of my coworkers hid some in the freezer for candy emergencies. I went to the gym and ran for 31 min (run 2 walk 1) and only drank water. So pretty on plan for today.

Hope everyone has a great night.

Thanks so much for coaching this week, Helen! Great questions and some thoughtful responses.

A big WATP thank you to our hostess this month, Amanda!

Please be sure and PM her your weigh in numbers tomorrow.

I am Lisa and I will be your coach for this week. I am a veteran of many of these challenges since I found the WISH boards in 2009. My weight loss seems to move at a glacial pace at times but each year I end the year weighing less than what I started. I've also done things that I never dreamed of doing and made lifelong friends. I can honestly say WISH has made me so much happier and healthier.

I am in the Pacific time zone so I am going to post the QOTD for tomorrow and be back tomorrow for replies so you east coast folks, and beyond, aren't waiting on me.

I am a big fan of sparkpeople.com Although I am on WW now the content and emails from sparkpeople are wonderful. This was something that appeared in my inbox this week and is the inspiration for the theme that you will find in the questions this week.

I like to have treats available daily, although since I do low carb (not necessarily Atkins), my treats are usually a little sugar free jello with a dollop of whipped cream. That is a total of 0 carbs!!! Then I also have Friday free day, where I allow myself to have whatever without guilt. I also love junk food so when I am craving it during the week, I just put it off for Friday. Although usually by then, I am over one craving and on to another and never eat everything I have been craving all week in just one day. It works great for me, I never feel deprived or that I can't have something I want because I know I can have it on Friday. Also, I do feel that it keeps me on track and I am loosing weight, so for me its all good!!

Have a great day all!

These are all GREAT reasons to workout!!! My favorite one is: Because I want to create a better future for myself. This is so true for me and my situation. I only want to do this for myself, not for anyone else. Not to make anyone else happy other than myself. I feel so much pride every time I finish a workout, especially when I really don't want to in the first place! I am really excited to say that I am already halfway through my exercise challenge!!!
Also I have noticed so many benefits related to continued exercise, from my clothes fitting better to an overall feeling of happiness that I had been missing before joining W.I.S.H. I truly enjoy reading along with everyone and I don't feel so bad and filled with self hate when I do slip up now and then. It all comes down to knowing I am not alone in my struggle and getting back up on the wagon is much easier when you have people offering you a hand up when you need it most.

===================

I ended up getting called off tonight!! So I now have an unexpected night off....... time to catch up on my DVR and then get a good nights sleep!! Hope everyone gets a little unexpected treat tonight, whatever that may be......

For me it's Holiday related food, it's just such traditional stuff it's hard to let go. And yeah-- totally worth it as long as it's under some kind of control.

I'm just not ready to give up my looks as of yet. I don't know if I ever will be. I mean I don't need to look 22 I just want to look as well as I can without throwing a lot of money into it. I can handle time and effort.

My biggest exercise excuse is not having time. Like tomorrow-- on Fridays I've been wanting to get to work early because I haven't seen my friend for 2 days (pathetic I know) so I'll skip exercise if I don't get my but moving early. I guess I need to set the alarm so I get up early enough to go to the gym and be able to eat before work and have enough time to put on makeup etc.

By the way, thanks for the list, I've been wondering why I've even been doing everything I do....

Was a little sore today so was going to swim, did some reading on lifting weights and really think I ought to start doing 1/2 of my weights each day--different muscle groups because that is what is really emphasized so your body can heal and build muscle. Decided at some point it would be faster and less hassle to go for a bike ride. Couldn't figure out where I wanted to go and then thought of hiking. So I did it but didn't really enjoy it because all I could think of was my bike hooked up to the bars at the onset of the path lol. Next time I'll hook it up at the playground. Our town is prolific for bike theft. There's some lock company that guarantees their locks except for NY, a few others and us.

Fed Sunny 5 times today lol. She's definitely getting the hang of things. Some extra Pixie dust for her please--I think she's past the worse but still needs your good thoughts.

Have a great day all!
Hello Lisa!! Thank you for hosting us this week.

My reason to exercise is for strength. My core was very weak and I kept injuring myself. I do landscaping as my hobby and in order for me to continue that I need to build strength. I "dead lift" a lot of stuff and my physical therapist is helping me there.

INCH loss around my gut. I have lost weight but it seems to be hard as HECK to move that one. Weight loss alone is not going to do it.

Fixing my feet. I am digging the golf ball into my foot as I type. My plantar fascia muscles are ticked off, which has set off a chain reaction of issues in my body.

No bonus here. I am too new to all this. One day I will be able to answer that.
