Have to deal with school, and my sister's wedding, and graduation, and the move is really quite stressful. I was doing so good. 32 pounds lost, and now i'm at 27.5 pounds lost. UGGGGH! I totally wanted to be at 40 pounds lost for my sister's wedding. I really think it's highly unlike that i'll lose 12.5 pounds for when i weigh-in next wednesday, so oh well.
I just have to get back up on that proverbial horse, and keep working hard, and keep trying hard. I really need to exercise like i tell myself i'm going to. Getting exercise, and getting that anxiety out really helps with my emotions, and all that anxiety i have that goes towards mindless and emotional eating.
I really love #fitblog, it's helped me so much. I've met some great people that are going through and dealing with and have gone thrown the same issues i'm having. It's such a beautiful thing. I wish sometimes they could be up in my face, telling me not to eat fast food when i want to stop after school or, telling me that i shouldn't order 6 sushi rolls, maybe 2 or 3. That i shouldn't eat 4 or 5 bread rolls at O'Charley's maybe just ask the people i'm with to move the bread basket to another side of the table. Sometimes i can totally do the turning down food at dinner and parties and function, but sometimes I SO CAN NOT. This past week it was SOOOOO CAN NOT!
Weigh gain occurred from: Eating pasta at dinner and 4 bread rolls, eating rolls of sushi, eating fastfood 3 times this week (which i never do! or try NOT to do!) Eating cheese and crackers which i'm not supposed to eat.
My Ideal Protein Protocol / Plan consists of:
Breakfast - 1 multi-vitamin, 1 potassium calcium vitamin, & select 1 Ideal Protein Food ( I normally have pudding, bar, or pre-made chocolate drink)
--> No mid-morning snack
Lunch - 2 cups of vegetables (there's a list of vegetables, some i'm not allowed to have as they are higher in carbs and calories than others), along with another IP food.
Dinner - 2 cups of vegetables ,and 5-7 oz of protein of my choosing (seafood, beef, chicken, poultry, eggs)
2 capsules of Magnesium-Calcium Vitamin
After dinner snack- another IP food with 2 more capsules of Magnesium-Calcium Vitamin
I've been on weight watchers several times, LA Weight Loss, and other diets. I found that when i follow the protocol exactly and get exercise-- I do great and feel great and i lose weight!!! But sometimes i just don't want to eat those healthy foods, i want to eat foods that i can't eat and shouldn't eat. It's difficult for me to plan meals, and pick out what's best. That's why this program works so WELL FOR ME! I just really need to get back to the program! YEAH that's right, i'm getting back on and i'm gonna do it!
Whoa, thanks for your listening :)
Until next time,
PS--> What do you do to keep yourself from overeating like crazy when you go to dinner / parties / weddings / showers / functions??? Input and comments are greatly appreciated!
