Ohhhh! I get in that mindset sooooo often! We must think alike.


Keep in mind that you always have “today” to start something. ๐Ÿ™‚ You can’t change your past behavior, but you an start the changes you want to see at any time. Even if you’ve had all of your meals, track your food for the day. Make a note in your cell phone to remind you of your caloric intake and nutrition goals. Plan your meals for tomorrow ahead of time, and determine your portions.


We’re int he same boat, lady. I keep gaining and losing the same two pounds, and I am very close to moving down into my lower “tens” bracket. DX I need to get serious, or I willr egret it! I’m not going to ebat mysefl up, but I am going to give myself some loving encouragement!

@DayDay:  I’m exactly the same!  I find working out with a friend better than working out with SO though.  SO will suggest exercise but I put my foot down if I don’t fancy it, I can’t put my foot down with friends in the same way.

@scrinz:  I second this. Fiance and I work out together, and it’s really good for us. I’m down 5 kilos and he’s down 5 or 6, as well.

Weight loss is a tedious process so I think you are feeling overwhelmed. Also, I don’t think you should compare yourself to your fiance in terms of effort and progress because everyone works at their own pace you know? If you compare and try to keep up you are just putting ADDED pressure on yourself. Do it at your own pace and good luck, you can do it!

@DayDay:  It sounds like you eat to cope with emotions, like guilt.  Have you considered forcing yourself to do another activity when you have that urge to eat?  Journal, take a walk, work on something crafty… anything to move your focus off of food?  I use to be an emotional eater and it took awhile, but it eventually became second nature to delay eating so that I could fully ascertain whether I needed food (hunger) or emotional nourishment.
