    Lose pounds by xmas eve

    I feel like giving up at the moment. I've worked hard at it for two weeks and done pretty well with things so far, especially cutting way down on sugar but now I'm having a f*ck it moment. I had cokes again today and yesterday. I don't know, maybe I will knock the cokes on the head again tomorrow, they are so bad for me. Perhaps I will let myself have some chocolate here and there though. Maybe I'm trying too hard and trying to go too far. That's so me

    I had a massive blow out today and enjoyed every minute! I'm not going to feel bad about it but I'm going to try a 5:2 approach to dieting tomorrow so that I can have two days of effort and the rest normal.

    OMG OMG!! I have this from my mother. She calls me a hermit. It's the worst insult I could imagine. It makes me furious too and I haven't spoken to her in months after the last time she said it. Time before, it was months too!

    I so get this feeling. It's the worst. Feeling like some sort of subhuman species! Not nice.

    I love the idea of running. In the past I've done a bit of sprinting but I found long distance running hard. The sprinting was good though. Excellent for anxiety too. Takes me back to those fit days....

    Ugh, so I had a day off yesterday and, needless to say, the pound I worked so hard to lose is back on again today. Dieting is hard. If I really want to lose this weight before xmas I guess I can't have any days off! !

    I had a good walk yesterday. It was the first time I've enjoyed it since going without my cokes. I was more energetic than I usually am and got a bit of a natural high from it. It was like my mind figured out it needed something else to get a buzz from coz the coke wasn't coming anymore! Also stuck to my eating plan and I got my first good result this morning on the scale. I'm finally one pound down from where I started after gaining a couple, losing one etc. Now, the challenge is sticking with it. I find motivation increases with results so if I manage to keep it up a bit longer I might be able to keep going. Good luck to sober4life and evalynn today. I hope we can all achieve our goals with support

    I'm sorry to hear you woke up to a panic attack today Epictetus. That's an awful way to wake up. Mine happen mostly at night but either way, they're awful and I'm sorry you have to go through this. ((((Epictetus ))))

    Have been home all day today trying to get things done. Seems to be the only way I can is to dedicate a whole day.. So, no walks today. It was a plan in the back of my mind but I will go tomorrow. Food has been good today, plenty of salad and fruit, some pasta and pitta bread, cheese and tuna. No cokes, no chocolate or cakes. Have had 4 low fat hot chocolates and this seems to be enough to satisfy me. Lol I find losing weight easier if I stick to a similar routine and type of foods through the day. Here is my plan: First thing: one banana Breakfast: 2 low fat hot chocolates and a small portion of cheese (!) Lunch: large wholemeal pitta filled with salad and hummus/olive oil ...one banana and two tangerines Dinner : wholemeal pasta and tuna Couple pieces fruit for dessert. I think most meals are fine for dinner as long as portion size is not too big. Will try to use above as a formula and just have alternative main meals. The scales were up this morning but it doesn't surprise me, I ate loads yesterday. No sugar, just lots of food. Today has been far more balanced and I'm pleased (at least with my eating!) I haven't overeaten, the food was healthy and I enjoyed it. I don't think I could do much better than that! Go me

    How Do You Feel Right Now #8

    Thank you lynn1954, it means a lot to be accepted flaws an' all. It takes a lot to get through it sometimes because I know how uncomfortable it can make me. I think if I hadn't meditated before hand I would have given up half way through and cried. Then felt awful for the rest of the day. ***? It shouldn't be this hard. I find when things are only minimally dirty it sends my brain into overdrive because I am focused on cleaning up the things I can't see or 'the germs'. Really dirty dishes don't seem to bother me! I wish I could get over this.

    Well, I worked through the pile of dishes in the kitchen today and cleaned up a bit. It's horrific for me sometimes. What would take most people half an hour takes me about 4. I go over and over things when cleaning. I'm guessing it's some form of ocd. At least the kitchen looks acceptable again. I'm thinking of carting off a load of cups and dishes to charity so that I only have a couple and they can't pile up!!

    I've had to adapt most of the exercises to suit my new frame! There are certain postures I can't do any more (or at the moment). I'm hopeful I can be as fit as I used to be too. Can you look into an easier regime? I've done this and it feels good to do what I can. I can still stretch everything out and manage some postures quite well. .. If you can get a good teacher they can show you how to modify most, if not all postures to suit any ability... If not, maybe you could gently experiment with what's comfortable? Never strain. Never ever.
