momma6224's Journal, 20 June 2018

Still heading in the wrong direction although I’ve slowed the train...hope to gain back full control and turn it around completely. When faced with bad food choices I need to remember how much I love clothes shopping (finally!) after many years of dreading it...I need to remember the bloating and headaches that come with carbs and the all over blah feeling after eating them. Sounds like it shouldn’t be difficult at all to refuse, but it is! I had iron will power for 4 months then caved. I need to find that will power again and quickly.
127.2 lb Lost so far: 30.4 lb.    Still to go: 2.2 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Wheat is a trigger for me. I have to watch very carefully what I eat and avoid wheat or I will have extreme cravings. When I randomly find myself at the fridge for the fourth time in an hour and really want to start stuffing my face I try to think what I ate earlier to start this cycle. It's usually something with wheat in it. Might be different for others

You can do it! When you get back on track, you can reward yourself by shopping.

Your weight loss has been amazing! So you enjoyed a few carbs -- shake it off and jump back into what you were doing before. I only wish I could drop as much as you have. You look amazing, too. Chin up, wilber..😊

Perhaps a longer list of the positive results of your new WOE, and other blessings, would be more uplifting and motivating than contemplating the negatives. _____________________ Willpower is highly overrated, and hoping things change can be an obstacle to action! _______ My new mantra: "DECIDE. PLAN. COMMIT. REST. EXECUTE. REST. Do it again!" ________________ I strongly recommend "The Pleasure Trap: Mastering the Hidden Force that Undermines Health & Happiness" by Douglas J. Lisle. ___________________ The review: A wake-up call to even the most health conscious Americans, this book challenges conventional wisdom about sickness and unhappiness in today's contemporary culture and offers ground-breaking solutions for achieving change. ______________ Inspired by stunning original research, comprehensive clinical studies, and their successes with thousands of patients, the authors construct a new paradigm for the psychology of health that offers fresh hope for anyone stuck in a self-destructive cycle. ______________ Learn unique insights into the factors that make us susceptible to dietary and lifestyle excesses; then discover how to restore the biological processes designed by nature to keep us running at maximum efficiency and vitality. This book can change your life.

That "review" is the blurb.

Be kind to you. This is an adventure for a life time - I am confident that you will get back on track.

I believe that nothing works, except the "moment". You will decide when you are ready to lose again. You are so close to your goal that you need time, patience, more exercise or less calories or different WOE. Enjoy your success and log every bite. I understand you want this 125, but you look beautiful at 127. Take your time. :-)

Thank you all. Sorry for my whining lately, I’ll figure this out!

I ease back into following my WoE. I get off track so I like you have slow down the train and then speed up as I make better choices.

You've been doing well for so long. Hang on!

Momma, I agree with Adef. Don't be so hard on yourself. Remember on a previous post you said you tend to be a people pleaser? How about pleasing yourself aka being kind to yourself. There are plenty of people out there willing to not be there for you, so you must be there for yourself. Yes, you will figure this out, because you are an intelligent woman who as already accomplished a lot and not just in losing weight. You have 5 amazing children, even though I don't know you or your family personally, your success and their happiness shows in the photos you have posted. And remember poop and water add up! ;)

Thanks again all my friends. Becc@ thank you!! You are so’s easy as a stay at home Mom to feel like you aren’t accomplishing much or doing anything great day in and day out but I am proud of my kids—they are good people and I hope I’ve done something to contribute to that😉 thanks for seeing positive in me and my family. It means a lot!

Ok I get it u want to lose, but u know .4 lb is nothing, u done really well. If u can’t stick to ur woe, try to limit portions n maintain. Once u get motivation to stick to ur new woe do so, so u can lose the last few pounds

One or two pounds isn't enough to worry about, normal fluctuations. We have a tendency to think one or two bites of forbidden foods has doomed us to failure even though we know deep down that isn't true. Fear of gaining might trigger a cortisol rush which might make one want to eat more. Calm down, you've got this. Eat too much one meal, make it up the next meal or the next day. Tracking will help monitor and give incentive to stay on track even for those on maintenance. Keep having confidence in yourself.

Momma, get through this tough stretch and it will get easier again. Also remember as you approach your goal, maintenance still requires some effort and diligence, a somewhat different effort than losing but still an effort. Take care!!
