on a burn-out

Saturday, May 10, 2008

i'm seriously getting tired of bland food. it seriously seems like that's all i eat. i think i should browse the recipe section to see what's in there. maybe something good will pop up. i wish i could get myself more motivated, but lately it seems like i just am here, going thru the motions. and not even whole-heartedly. really, not even half-heartedly! i guess, ha... i dunno!!! i should be using my sitting time to walk the halls or something. but instead, i'm sitting here typing a blog that probably won't even post. i don't get how people can diet without getting so burnt out. i guess i just haven't got the right attitude. but i'm impatient! i want the weight gone NOW! but it wont work that way. go figure. takes just a couple months to pack it on, the rest of my life to take it off. wow, i'm whining a lot. but seriously! i just don't want to anymore! emoticon

    Keep moving ... each step is better than none!
    I love Whoppers... so when I need a taste of chocolate I have ONE. This prevents me from eating 50, ya know? Portion control is a lot of the issue for emotional eaters... and it seems like the last bite is the best, so we never quit until the whole plate is empty. Anywho... I hope you will continue to strive forward... and most especially... you will seek help when you need it. I am very proud of you for doing so with this blog. You knew what to do... check the recipes.

    You CAN do this!

    Argh! I know this feeling ALL TOO WELL!! Whatever you do, please don't give up!!

    Have you been "depriving" yourself of all the "tasty" foods? If so, then that's something you should stop. Allowing yourself smaller portions (I know that's difficult!) of "bad" foods will help keep you on track when a day like this hits.

    You can do it! Just don't give up!!

    Don't give up on yourself. You can do this! Try and set up smaller goals for yourself, and mini rewards for when you meet those goals. I divided my weight loss goals into 5lb segments. Everytime I lose 5lbs I reward myself. It makes it much easier, and I find it less overwhelming then thinking about the 55lbs I want to lose. So far it's working and 20.4lbs have come off. I would also recommend checking out the Spark recipe board and consider trying a new recipe each week.

    I like McCormic's no Salt series of spices. There's Dilly, Spicy and other's I don't remember. it's no cal and improves everything you shake it over. Change your food. Eat stuff that you are unfamiliar with. Keep out of the rut!

    I took a peak at your food log for the past couple of days. I can see why you are burning out. :) I like to take a look at other people's food logs for ideas and I've found some pretty good ones. Personally, I love my fake honey mustard dressing which makes everything taste good to me. I take brown mustard and thin it out with a bit of water, add some spleda and presto...a tastly dressing for everything. :)

    Good luck on your journey. :)

    Burn out is very common for alot of us (me included). I try focusing on small goals to help keep my interest fresh.

    RE: Bland food - yeah I hear ya.
    Some times its like eating cardboard flavored with air. ever try adding herbs and spices? Adds a zing for little or no calories.

    Hope you feel better.
