I’ve been struggling. Not struggling the way I used to struggle. I used to feel defeated, get depressed, and eating everything in sight. Now I struggle in the sense that I’m not sure I’m ever going to lose these last 5 lbs and really, whether I should lose them.

That the internal conversations that’s creating self-doubt and sabotaging my efforts. I’m in paralysis by analysis mode.

You should hear the things that go through my head.

Great job on the eating today, and Crossfit, wow, you worked you’re a$$ off! No, a little cheese won’t hurt. Go ahead have a bite. Well, just because I worked out shouldn’t give me a free pass on mindless munching. I’ll never reach my goal if I don’t watch the little things. Hey, you’ve been maintaining for 7 years, you know what you’re doing. Have the darn cheese. It’s not going to kill you. It may not kill you, but it’s also not going to help you reach your goals either. Ohh but it tastes SO good. It does, but it will still be there tomorrow. You’re not even hungry now. No I’m not but man colby jack is like like one of my favorites.

OK, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I’m sure you all think I’m a crazy person but sometimes I really do get stuck in my head with the devil and angel battling it out.

Overall, the angel (or is it the devil –I’m not sure) has been winning and the scale is creeping down, again.

I know the only reason I’m playing with these few pounds is because of munching. My meals are on point, I’m cooking at home more, eating lots of great unprocessed foods. I just need to hone in on my mindless bites. That’s my current obstacle. We all have something, don’t we? The trick is to not get discouraged and forge ahead!

So how was your week? Looking at DietBet you guys are kicking butt! 654 players have lose 1685lbs so far! That’s INSANITY!! I still have 4.9 lbs to my goal and looking at all the progress is inspirational to say the least. I can’t wait to read all the weigh in comments!

Sorry for the late post. I had a busy morning. :)

    I haven’t been doing the wednesday weigh-ins lately.
    December involved 2 finals, a paper, 5 Christmas parties, my daughter’s birthday party, her birthday, and a week-long vacation (during which I celebrated my vacation by eating cheese, and mourned Sandy Hook by eating blocks of milk chocolate). However, I still managed plenty of healthy meals, a few visits to the gym. As of my official holiday hold ‘em weigh in at my local gym, I am down 3.4 pounds from Thanksgiving to yesterday.
    So far in January, I have found my way back to the gym WITH REGULARITY, and am working on my relationship with sugar.
    No – it’s not a temporary resolution. It’s merely a renewal now that the chaos has past.

    I have to say, I was where you were for over a year. Just 5 pounds from my goal. Well, I got pregnant with #3, (tough pregnancy, the kind where you are nauseous and just want to eat) and gained a ton. Well it is 6 months post pardum and I am 60, yes 60 pounds from that goal. Let me say it has given me great perspective. I regret focusing on that last 5. Even though I was “OK” with it. Keeping that number in my mind, bringing that number to the scale (in my mind as a comparison), and continuing to critique and analyze what I ate (not ALL the time but enough to keep me somewhat preoccupied and have guilt play a role) daily was still bondage. After a life struggle with weight, like you sizes 6 to 16, I found those last 5 as bondage (only seen now in retrospect). Now I would love to be 5 pounds away and just enjoy being fit, eating right, finding things that allowed me to enjoy my body (heck, it is hard to get off the floor sometimes and OH the binding waist of jeans now!). I know you DO focus a lot on the right things, and ARE going in the right direction, but I agree with your passing thought about “not losing the last 5″. Not that you won’t but if you take it off the table, truly take it off the table as a goal. You are free to be who you are in your fitness and eating…..freedom from numbers, quotas, points, sizes, perceived “perfection”, measuring, and most of all GUILT is what we all strive for and are worth! By the way, been following you for over 5 years and think you are awesome. Oh, one more thing. I look back at those pictures of me when I was 5 pounds away, I looked AWESOME, I mean really awesome, but I never felt that I did then. When I do get back to that area of the scale (Lord help me!) I vow to not obsess over those last 5. Hope I can do it!

    • RoniNoone

      I hear you on ALL fronts. I know I have gone so far and try every day to never take it for granted. I also try to use these passing thoughts I have to let other people know it’s normal for the thoughts to pop in your head as long as you don’t let them take over. KWIM? Anyway, don’t fret about your pregnancy gain. I know you can do it!

    This was the week last year when I limped back to a WW meeting, knowing that I had put on lbs over the past few months. I tried for a bit, then life got in the way & I didn’t end up losing the weight till summer. This is what I posted here when I weighed in on Sept. 26: “My goal for this year is to NOT put on weight between now and Dec. 31. Or at least not as much as I usually do!” I’m celebrating today because my weight is exactly what it was on Sept. 26, and that’s 6 lb. less than it was this week last year. None of my numbers are astounding, but my big victory is that I maintained my weight over the holidays without being on a “program”. I’m feeling more & more that I’ve learned enough & am starting to listen to my body enough that remaining mindful in my eating & exercising will keep me where I want to be. I’m sure I’ll continue to need my butt kick trips back to WW from time to time, but it sure is nice to greet a new year in a happier frame of mind. Right now this weight is do-able for me, without having to skip every “BLT” opportunity. As long as my BMI says I’m OK, I’m going to be happy to stick here.

It was a very stressful week with my car blowing up (Slight Exaggeration) on New Year’s Eve and being without a car until it gets fixed. Nine days with one car and being stuck at home is enough to set me over the edge and comfort myself with a big bag of Salt & Vinegar chips! But I haven’t so I call this a huge success!

    i’m finally below my preholiday weight. it is discouraging to say the least to put on weight over the holidays, but i feel that its just too unrealistic to not expect or allow for a few pounds to be put on. i mean we have parties and gatherings with loved ones in celebratory fashion…seriously, are we just going to eat salad?? no regrets is what i say. onward and downward on the scale from here on out. i’m closing in on the last 4 lbs and i see the light at the end of the tunnel. i feel motivated and driven, and i love having this place to come to for the accountability. thanks again for the dietbet challenge…if it weren’t for that, would i be as motivated? i’m not sure…

    Had a really bad week with fluid. This is not going to be a good week either. If I drop my points down under 25 and eat only natural foods I may counter act the fluids but I get tired of doing this. Had a binge yesterday–8 pts of candy and 9 points of crackers and I am up 5 pds from yesterday–ugh! I did well for a few months and I know in my head that this will pass–just need to stay the course.
    It is not this day or week but what I see when I look back over the year and I know that it will show much better results.

    • RoniNoone

      You counted your binge! That’s great and really a success in my opinion. It’s only when we walk away that we really do the damage. A bit of candy and crackers is no big deal when you put it behind you and don’t let it affect your future decisions.

    Ok, that loss really surprised me, ’cause I was a pound higher this weekend and I made some not great choices yesterday (but not nearly as bad as they could have been). NSV this week- getting back into the exercise groove and felt good at the end of a 40 minute run- first time in MONTHS that I got that “runners high.” Challenge for this week- 3 restaurant meals. Two for work and one birthday. I don’t usually eat out much, so stopping when I am full instead of “but it’s sooo tasty!” is challenging for me. Wish me luck!

    This post is perfect today! I’m trying not to get discouraged. I know part of my gain is water for multiple reasons and part is from going a bit crazy during a work potluck/birthday party and a few other days of loosely “watching what I eat”. I hit the gym hard 4 days and am totally on track/in a habit with my exercise, but am still struggling with eating. I’m going to focus on eating less and filling up on fruits and veggies.

    I ran a 10k on Saturday with a big smile on my face the entire time. It was so easy! Today, I ran for only 20 minutes and it was H.A.R.D. – it’s so funny how some days I am feel optimistic, happy, and fast, and others I feel down and depressed and slow. I wish I could get the rest of this weight off already! Feeling a little overwhelmed.

    • Shan

      I have these days all the time running. Sometimes it feels like you are so light and other days you are just dragging. Know that you are not alone in this. Even very seasoned runners go through this. You just hope it doesn’t land on a race day. Good work on the 10km, that is something to be really proud of. :)

    • Raluca

      Thank you for your comment – it’s good to know I’m not alone in this! :) It’s interesting when you relate running to life – sometimes I go through funks where I think I will never get better. It’s important to remember the good “runs” to know that there’s hope for better days!

    The angel and the devil are living on my shoulder too. My daughter’s birthday is tomorrow so I stopped into her fav bakery to get treats and was going to get a mini cupcake (with tons of icing) for myself partly because I was starving. Thank goodness they only sold them by the dozen BUT they were giving out 1″ cubes of samples. I took one of the samples, enjoyed it TREMENDOUSLY and was totally satisfied!!! I am getting better about knowing I will be satisfied with less than I think I will. That has been one of the most eye opening aspects on this journey.

    Roni, may I ask you? I am “fixin’ to” (Texspeak) join the Y and have no level of fitness whatsoever. I was thinking I would work up to some time on the treadmills, and elliptical machines at first but do you have any ideas on what else I might be able to ease into as well. I thought the Y would be less intimidating to a “fluffy” person like myself if you know what I mean. They have a pool but 1) its outdoors and 2) I am not ready for a bathing suit. Any input would be appreciated.

    My first weigh-in of the New Year. I’ve already started eating clean and exercising daily again so I’m not sweating that. But when you said this: “I’ll never reach my goal if I don’t watch the little things.” that really rang true for me. I have lots of little extras that I munch on throughout the day. Each one is only supposed to happen once but I find myself having extras, here and there.

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with having those “last five pounds” as a goal. I also think it’s ok if you never lose them but keep wanting to. I think if you give that goal up then sooner or later there’s going to be another five pounds to lose and then five after that and so on. Stick with the first five pounds but don’t sweat it too much if they never fully come off.

  • abby

    I have been following you for a few years, and my weight loss has been sloooooow. By slow I mean, creeping down, almost unnoticeably. I started at 184, five years ago, and am now at 146. And I have been at 148-152 for at least 2 years. Recently, I have decided tomake an effort to lose a few pounds. And slowly its happening. My biggest change, my true evolution is not at all in the number on the scale, or how i se the number, or what it means, or when I say yes to food or no. My true evolution has been in the quiet mind. I am no longer dieting, no longer giving any brain space to speaking about food and weignt like I used to. I have completely shifted to being a thin minded person, in an overweight body. I have completely forgiven myself forthe years of misstreatment and wasted time. And now enjoy everything the way it is. Is it really about the 5 pounds now??? WHat wll achieving your goal give you??? The prcesss, the Processs, the process of our daily lives is where it’s at, you know that, yu have shown us taht, what’s the obsession with these 5 pounds?? are you even taking into account all themuscle??? maybe thsoe 5 pounds are not so realistic, with all the muscle tone you have!!!!??? I simply love you adn everything you represent!!!! Enjoy the cheese once in a while, it’s waht healthy thin people do!!!!!!

    I am really struggling to move beyond the 150s for good. I get down to 149 and bounce back up. I’m journaling faithfully on WW eTools. I’m working out 5-6 days a week. I am focusing on whole foods and eating less sugar and processed foods. I am frustrated, but not giving up. I have less than 15 lbs to reach my goal. I’ve come this far, but I feel like I’m beating my head against a wall right now.

    My weight stayed the same at 131.
    My goal was 130 but I would like to lose an additional 5 pounds so I can be happy with my weight if it is anywhere from 125-130.
    There are just going to be some days during the month that your body is going to retain water and or you snack extra over the weekend.
    It is hard to be at an extract weight and maintain that weight every day of your life.
    So my goal for 2013 is getting to 125 which will give me a 5 pound wiggle room.
    I have lost 31 pounds in 2012 and I know I can lose this last 6 pounds soon if I continue my gym workouts and healthy eating!.
    6 pounds to go. I can do this!!!!!
    I will be 60 years old in March and I want to reach that goal by then.

    I say forget the 5 pounds. So what if you don’t lose them. You are healthy and you look great. What’s going to change if you lost 5 pounds? Instead you should look at those last 5 pounds as what’s kept you in maintenance mode for 7 years. Or what’s kept you such a great inspiration to all these people. You’re not just someone who’s rehashing what you did to lose the weight and get healthy, you’re someone who’s still doing it with us.

    Down 2.4 from last week or .6 from 2 weeks ago. I’m going to count more the .6 because I was up 1.8 from the week before, but I think that was more a “false” weight from a lot of sodium/water weight. Therefore down .6 in the last 2 weeks & I will take it.
    The Wednesday Weigh-Ins & Diet Bet are really helping me stay accountable & think before I put it in my mouth. I’m FAR from perfect, but it does make me think. :) My other goal is to be down by @ least 10 lbs from the last time I saw my sister. Which means I need to lose @ least 2.4 lbs by 1/26/13.
    I did run the Inaugual Los Angels New Years 1/2 marathon on 1/5/13 & I felt GREAT. :)
    As always, thanks for all you do Roni. I hope you have an AMAZING time on your trip, you deserve it!!!!

    Well I forgot to weigh in yesterday morning so I waited until this morning. I have been back to eating well and on my running program. Hate that I got back up in the 170′s over the holidays after struggling to get out of them, but happy I didn’t stay there long. Sick this week with the kids so I haven’t run. Hoping to get back on track with my running once we are better. Great post. Always enjoy your wednesday posts and being accountable.

    I can totally relate to the two voices in the head, and sometimes my “good” voice is so strong, and other times it feels so easy to give in to the “bad” voice. 7 years maintaining weight loss is huge! i only made about 2 before I started to slip and now I have to start again.

    Not sure if I’m trying to lose or maintain before trying for #2…but I’m eating less & exercising more – or balancing between the two… It almost feels natural – kind of effortless – and totally awesome. (yes I am an unrepentant California girl & my 17 month old smiles her big grin and says it too – “awesome!”)
