Weigh-in total

Woohoo!!! I lost 4.5 this week and a total of 12.3 lbs for the month. I can tell that my clothes are getting looser and some people have noticed. I did really good this week but one reason is because I had a bad tooth and haven't really been able to eat.

I just need to continue to monitor what I eat and drink my water. I'm loving the "high" I get when I step on the scale and it goes down. I don't think there is any better feeling. It validates all the work I have done.

This week my goal is to start excersing and to continue to eat healthy and not give in to the fatty inside me that says it's okay to eat it no one will know.

Here's to a happy Tuesday and healthy choices.

Why do I do this...

This past week was BAD. We had a going away party for my boss on Friday and at first I did really good. I chose the veggies instead of donuts. But after about 2 hours I said screw it, it's a free day so I gorged. I was so sick when I left work.

Then this weekend I went to the store and "secretly" bought a candy bar and ate it really quick before I got home. I don't know who I was hiding it from because it only hurts me. I guess I figure if no one sees me eat it then it doesn't count. I really need to change this thinking but I just don't know how.

So here's to realizing that it hurts me and no one else and to healthy choices!!

Weekly Weigh-in

I tried to eat right this weekend and I think I did pretty good, but I know that I also either overate or just ate bad things. I tell myself it's a cheat day then a cheat day turns into a cheat week. I have to stop doing that. I need to keep focusing on my goals and how much better I will feel with this weight off of me.

I lost 1.3 lbs this week. I'm happy with that but I probably would have lost more if I would have stayed focus and not give in to temptation.

Here's to a good week and making healthy choices.

I survived!!

So yesterday my supervisor came down my row and said there were donuts down the cash team row. My first thought was how good the chocolate frosting would be but immediately I saw the donut going right to my butt!! So I continued to obsess about how good the donut would be. I walked down the isle where the donuts were, I walked by the isle like 5 times. As soon as I thought about eating one the picture of my butt getting bigger popped in my head.

I am proud to say I didn't eat the donut and I survived. That is the biggest revelation that I will survive without the donuts and all other unhealthy junk! I'm very proud of myself. That is why I truly believe I'm gonna do it this time because I have made huge strides in the past week and a half.

I know there will be bumps in the road but I can't let those get me down. I must keep on keeping on!! Here's to a safe weekend and making healthy choices!!!

I did it!!

Well  made it through my first full week and I feel great. I'm making some very good decisions but also am letting myself splurge. I think that is the key, don't get on yourself for having that cookie. If we don't indulge every once in a while we are never going to stick with healthy eating.

I'm so happy to have lost 4.8 lbs this week. I worked really hard to lose this and it makes all the work worth it. Now I need to get back into walking. I don't have much time to enjoy the outdoors before it starts raining again.

Here's to making healthy choices!!!

Day 2 went really good thanks to tips from my best friend Becca!! On my computer at work every 2 hrs it reminds me to finish my water. I love this idea, it really keeps me motivated to finish before the alarm!! So I was wondering what things do you use to help you during the day?

It's gonna take sometime for me to figure out what is worth eating and what to pass on. I was getting a good grasp on this before I fell off the wagon. I know it won't take that long it's just frustrating that I let myself go back to the old way of eating.

I have a 4 yr old daughter who I can see that because of my choices she isn't eating what she should and that breaks my heart. I don't want her to have to deal with her weight for the rest of her life like I have. I guess she is one of the biggest motivations I have.

Here's to it being the middle of the week and to healthy choices!!

Long time no post, well that's about to change. So I fell off the wagon after my dad passed away and I started my new job. I love my job and the people I work with are awesome. But, I sit at a desk all day which means I can eat all day. We have snack days or people bring food in about once a week. And just has my blog title states I have no self-control. Well that's going to stop. NO more excuses. So here goes round 2 and I'm going to win this one.

So I weighed in today and I'm not where I started last time so that is good but I gained quite a bit back. So here it is 258.1 lbs. That's okay.

Here's to new beginnings and to making healthy choices.
