One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident

JOURNAL

TRYING to put the weekend behind me…

but I’m having a REALLY hard time.

I was totally in control until 6pm today.  Then it happened.

The pizza came.  

Pizza + Hormones = Overeating DISASTER

Since Saturday, it’s like I am not happy unless I’m actively chewing on something.  You would think the gross, heavy, “I feel like I gained 25lbs” feeling would curb it, but NOoooo.  Right now I’m nibbling on graham crackers.

I MUST BE STOPPED!

Why Why oh Why?

Ok, this is stupid.  I’m not hungry. The graham crackers are going away and tomorrow I’m going to refocus.

UGH! I feel gross.

However, I am being accountable.  I posted my food journal using my new table generator.

It is now behind me.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    There must be something in the water, Roni – I’ve been the same way, but I’ve been like this the past 2 weeks!!!

    Hormones suck.

    BTW, Ryan is adorable – I have a Ryan as well! :)

    Is your husband getting the pizza. If you feel you have no control, try not to have it in the house.

    me too….my hubby was finally home after being at work for 2 months straight (he’s in the Navy) and we PIGGED out for 4 days…definitely had a two pound gain on Sun. Yikes…and now my kids are sick so I can’t hit the gym..it’s back to 20 points a day, writing it ALL down and doing things with my time aside from eating…I am trying to clean, dance with the kids…anything to keep myself out of that forsaken kitchen. :-) You’ll get it back….you’ve come a LONG way!

    There’s something about that “control” thing… the minute I think I’m in the driver’s seat, I’m doing great, I’m flying along… WHAM! wth!!? what’s up with that??

    I’m going to link back to you on this one, because I am having the exact same problem. I’m a model health nut during the day, and then my alter ego of human garbage disposal comes out after dark!

    Anyway, thanks a million for the table generator! I need to get back on counting so I can take advantage of this great tool! You are so damn sweet Roni!

    I totally understand! I had a period of a few weeks recently where I was just… munchy without any good reason. What stopped me in my tracks was eating a piece of light string cheese EARLY in the morning… and making sure to get all of my 8 GHG in WITHOUT fail. Oh, and more exercise. ;) Today is a new day my friend – you’re going to do great!

    Some days overeating happens. Accept that and enjoy your pizza. At some point you won’t feel like overeating. It will happen sooner if you don’t fight it.

    Roni – examine what is going on emotionally that is making you want to chomp

    Roni, try eating alot of protien. And also I like to take xtra vit. c. it tends to curb some cravings. Are you getting enough fish oil. You may try taking 2x 1000mg. of fish oil at night, especially during pms. I find it helps keep me in control. You can do it. Have a hot cup of herbal tea,they have great holiday teas out now. Good luck!!!!

    RONI, I LOOKED AT WHAT YOU HAD DURING THE DAY AND FROM WHAT I SEE YOU ARE NOT EATING ENOUGH. TRY EATING MORE PROTEIN AND TRY TO SQUEEZE IN SOME “SUPER FOODS” SUCH AS BLUEBERRIES, SPINACH, NUTS,SEEDS, OATS. THEY WILL KEEP YOU FULLER LONGER AND TURN OFF THOSE CRAVINGS. TRY IT ANYWAY. WHAT COULD IT HURT???

    I hear ya sista! I’ve been having the same trouble, only on the weekends. I do so great all week and then Kablamo! Fridays hits and it’s a free for all. Ugh. BUT at least you stayed accountable for your pizza fiasco and journalled it right? Kudos to you for that.
    We can’t be perfect 100% of the time. The important thing to to control and limit the “off the wagon” times and compensate with gym time and lots of water!

    As cheesey as it sounds…sometimes I have to resort to literally saying outloud to myself “I can do this!”…of course I make sure nobody’s in the room first…:)

    I feel your pain. I think we are on almost the same cycle. I finally took control of my weekend yesterday and stayed within my points, but didn’t drink enough water. Hormones happen. My dad has a saying: Some days you eat the bear and some days the bear eats you. I have my own saying: some days I could eat a whole bear. LOL!

    I made your delicata steak fries recipe with dinner last night and had leftovers for lunch today. Yummy and I love that you don’t have to peel it! Thanks for your blog. I love your honesty (and your recipes)!

    Hey Roni –

    I just found your Blog last week, but wanted to say I totally know how you’re feeling. I do the same thing. I can ask myself why I’m doing the bad eating, but many times I still can’t figure it out and keep putting hand to mouth. You hang in there. You’re doing a beautiful job and putting yourself out there for the world to see is not an easy thing!

    Roni,
    This is just one of those inevitable things that your body does because it wants to gain the weight back. It might be in starvation mode or something..you just never know. I think perhaps you could let yourself have 30 points a day for a while..or whatever you would like to up it (and be okay with it) until you feel like you can do it again. I think you have to be ready to loose weight mentally…I don’t think you can force it. You are still at a very good weight BMI wise, so don’t sweat it. Just be nice to yourself and try to enjoy what you do indulge in. I hope that helps. I am routing for you!

    I am telling you – pizza will do it everytime…it is the crack of food! Someone should study the combonation of carbs and protein etc to see what the deal is with Pizza. The same thing happens to me with enchiladas – if I make a pan I eat the whole pan and then I can’t stop eating for days!

    Sometimes emotional stuff can make you want to eat, but sometimes it’s just the smell of a tasty pizza. . . .
