HOnestly I’m horrid! I just ate 5 handfuls of salt and vinergar chips, I’m drinking a 7Up and munching a Cadburry Crunchie candy bar (can you tell I’m marrying into an English Family….lol) and I should be using the nap time of my daughter to WORK OUT –
We need work out buddies!!!Who’s in? I’m soooooooo not motivated! Even when I looka t my, bloated, makes me look pregnant, and my boobs disappear tummy….ugh!!! I keep going – Eh – I have time…NO I DONT I HVAE TO DO THIS NOW!!!!!
I was spoiled with a high metabolism that wore off 3 years ago……I’m not a ahppy chica.
I have to toss out all this junk, but we got most of it from England for the holidays because we ALWAYS do and I love my crunchie bar…it’s the last one….
Ahhhh Ok I’m getting up…..here I go…..watch me…..wait should I work out after eating all that crap….I might puke…OMG see I’m making more excuses!!!!!! AND NOW I’M FIGHTING WITH MYSELF IN A POST!
I’m a full on nut case is what I am.

Lol. I’m just climbing back on the healthy eating/working out bandwagon too Sweeney. I lost 13 pounds last year and proceeded to gain 9 of them right back. So I’m still down 4, but have a ways to go to catch back up with my progress last year. I’ve heard for some people if they like their treats and dont’ want to throw them out, you could maybe try 6 healthy days and then allow yourself a treat one day a week, if that works. I know I am not going to stop eating chocolate till August, so I feel your pain!! I just try to limit it to a small amount.
Have you checked out Sparkpeople.com yet? It’s really helpful. It is to working out and healthy eating what Weddingbee is to weddings 🙂

Last spring, I joined Myfooddiary.com. It’s $9/month with no contract so you can try it and quit within a month. It’s not so much a diet plan as it is a lifestyle. Instead of calculating things it does most of the work for you. Free food diaries accomplish similar things, but this one has the biggest database I’ve seen yet. The best part is the forum section where you can join up with groups of people that have similar goals (brides to be). I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. Check it out.

LMAO girl! Yeah I need to be kicked out of my chair today also- seriously, I’m addicted to weddingbee.
As far as pigging out… yeah, Christmas. BARF. The thought of food makes me nauseated right now. Honeybaked Ham is my weakness.
I’m doing weight watchers again. It’s a great program, my problem is sticking to it when I reach my goal weight. Boo. BUT I have to lose like 20 lbs before my wedding because I’m not going to be a super lumpy bride. And I kind of want to fit into my backup dress from Jcrew I got online for 25 bucks. Period. I can drop 1.5 – 2 lbs per week until the wedding. I WILL!
No more doublecheeseburgers from mcdonalds! BAH! They are nasty. And bad for me… and cheesy goodness! Boo! They are more than 1/2 my daily allotment of points… so I must stop eating them! Otherwise I will only get one meal a day followed by nothing but raw veggies and fruit. or applesauce.

Ooh, yeah having a 3 year old with a mac-n-cheese habit around would make it a wee bit tougher. (Lol, I think I just made your daughter sound like a junkie. Did not mean it that way!!) But it should be easier to stop with the junk food that you don’t feed her, like 7 UP for instance, right? Start with that. Small steps will get you there.

WHo am I kidding, she is a junkie….she needs the mac man 🙂 LOL.

I am notoriously famous for overeating…and eating unhealthy. I ate chips everyday…big bags…and chocolate….
I recently discovered Spirulina…it’s a microalgae with tons of health benefits (and no side effects). It can be found in Health Food stores and Vitamin shops. A few weeks ago, I also learned that spirulina is a natural appetite suppressant. It helps me crave less junk food and I can manage to eat smaller portions.

Ugh, I hear ya’ll. I am such a binge eater. I am so goos at controlling what I have for meals, and I try to eat the same foods all the time because then I dont have a variety of food in my house…but snacks, Man, do snacks get me. I lost 10 lbs for my wedding in August, and I have never looked and FELT better. We went on our honeymoon and I had gained about 5lbs back, and now, I have gained all 10 back!
Thankfully I was able to motivate myself this morning for 20 minutes on the elliptical…I just hope I can get thru the evening without binging! Does anyone have any suggestions to get thru evenings without scarfing down whatever I see?

I feel the collective pain. I’m the queen of binge eating and it doesn’t help that I work from home, where the fully stocked kitchen is just a few paces away.
I recently re-started Body By Glamour. You might not be able to sign in for 2008 until March, but I could be wrong about that. It’s free and it’s on glamour.com. You can say what you particularly want to work on and it generates a bunch of easy strength training workouts that just require a set of weights, and it gives you a guide on how much cardio you should be doing each week. In addition, there is a food log. Sometimes it can get tedious logging every meal, but I find that when I’m being good and honest about it, I don’t snack as much and do better with portion control. It definitely takes committment, but even when I’m just guessing at calorie counts, if I do the workouts, I can feel it making a difference.
