Eating Humble Pie....

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

well i'm here and want to tell you the truth about the last 7 days, first my friend went in the hospital and her husband died in may and there was no one to stay with her so i volunteered.
hospital food was not good, i ate things i should not have. and then went without meals, then was famished and ate some more. then she came home and i babied her and got her the favorite fast food she likes she didn't want me to cook. ( and i ate with her).
and then here came superbowl thats what really pushed me over the edge. everyone brought something to eat to my house to watch the game. i snacked and then snacked some more, and i drank and then drank some more. then they left the leftovers to sit here in my fridge and call my name..so here it is tuesday night i have ate chips, drank pop, ate leftover wings, pizza and then about 3 cups of ice cream(my weakness). i am totally out of control. i don't know how to turn this around. i still do my cardio and 3 mile walks
i only missed 4 days when i was with my friend. haven't been on my scale to see the damage.and i have a big week end coming up, to visit my cousin whom i have been preaching to about sparkpeople and how wonderful it is and how it has helped me, and how i have bragged about my 20 pound weight loss. but here i sit knowing i have gained 5 pounds maybe even more. i know this because i am bloated and miserable andi'm wearing my fat jeans again
( so this thursday i will be eating my humble pie when i get to her house)..monday i tried to get back on track, but screwed up as soon as i came back from my 60 minute cardio workout. today i started out good, then Bammm..started eating everything i could get my hands on. I am like a woman possessed..how do i turn this around and get back on track????

I'm just here serving some Whine with my " humble pie!!

    You are doing great keeping up with your exercise. And I bet if you logged what you are eating, you get back on track in no time.

    I understand...A couple of years ago I had lost a total of 40lbs. Then I had a blood clot in my leg from injuring it and decided well if I die tomorrow I might as well eat whatever the hell I want.
    And I did...for a total of 6-8 months. And you know what happened ? I put most of it back on. I was not exercising and stopped at every single fast food place whenever I traveled by to and from work.
    I did not exercise...not even walking. And my hunger and poor choices were out of control.
    SO this January I got on Spark People again. ONly this time I am really going to Use it !! Starting with the calorie counting...
    I figure...I need to do this. I did not just drop dead from having a blood clot (although now I am on blood thinning medication). And it is time to get healthier since it looks like I will be sticking around for awhile :)
    So much for eating whatever....been there, done that. And may even be tempted again.
    Glad you are still exercising....and don't worry you will get back on track !! I believe in you !!

    I think we've all been there! It's good that you write and thereby get support from others. We are all in this together, and I know you'll be right back on track sooner than later! I'm positive that your friend will notice the difference! Congrats on your accomplishments...never forget about them!!!

    We all have day (s) like this and this is only a little set back. The next time you weigh yourself, don't have any expectations; if the result is bad, you'll know why and you can put this in the Lessons Learned file. The good thing is that you kept with your exercises; so not all is lost. Now, if you haven't already done so, throw away ALL that junk food leftover by your relatives or friends. It's time to return to your strategy for healthy living. Tomorrow is a new day; make it count and keep sparking.

    Honestly, all the better for sharing Spark People since you are still up and working at it despite the ups and downs that would be inevitable.
