Why do I did it

Postby Bel » Fri Oct 20, 2006 1:57 pm

Everyone I have sinned......
Why is that I do so well and then suddenly I go out for tea to fasta patsa and instead of having a small bowl of healthy pasta I have the Chicken Parmy with chips and a side salad.
The worst thing about it is that I really didn't feel like I just wanted to eat it.
Not only that I know that I have a very hard weekend coming up with a family reuion in the country and I lot of feral food will be there so I was going to be so good during in the week in case I slipped on the weekend......
Sabortage..... that's what it is everytime......
WHY WHY WHY WHY. [/i]

Why? Because you're human!

Honestly, I know it's easy to get hung up this stuff, but it's okay, we all slip up once in a while.. the important thing is to jump straight back on the wagon afterwards!

Eating healthy is impossible to do every single day, for every single meal.. at least is sure is for me and most people I talk to! Aim to eat healthy as often as you can, and if you are making healthy choices 80% of the time or more, you will do fine.

Don't stress out and have fun this weekend, just try not to indulge TOO much!

Oh Bel it is ok. You need to reprogram your thinking and dont look at being "on" a diet as that allows your thinking to become irrational if you have an occasional treat (does that make sense?) As Mandie says eat healthy for 80% of the time and the occasional "slip ups" are called life!! When I have something that I know does not fit into my eating plan, I take it one meal at a time after that. It helps and I think you are doing really well!!

Bel, don't beat yourself up. Sometimes good intentions fall out that way and I'm sure we've all done something similar.

Oh boy, have we what!!!! Guess what i cooked up tonight for the kids and me. Bacon and potatoes in the frypan, with the fat still on the bacon!!! :oops: Wow was it yummy. i had some with my bowl of vegies and a bit of homemade garlic bread as well :oops: But as you say, i'll just hop back on my little red wagon tomorrow and be good as gold again.
My 11year old daughter is coming a walk with me around Lysterfield Lake Park (7ks) so that will be a start.

Thanks everyone, I know that I'm a little hard on myself, but that's only because everytime I've fallen off the wagon I struggle to get back on.. But I'm feeling a litte bit more positive now. I'm going away for the weekend as I said, I know that it's going to be hard but i'm going to take some fruit and crackers woth me so I'm not as bad as I could be. Then first thing monday morning back to the gym...
Cheers :)

If only we could distort our sense of smell and taste so that tasty things like chicken parmesan, fresh baked bread, cheese, french fries and chocolate all had no flavour, then we'd probably leave them all alone and be skinny.

I agree Dolly.
If everything that i crave tasted like cardboard, i'd be that skinny person i want to be :lol: A pity life aint like that though huh?
I went on a hike today and did probably 11-12 ks. (it was beautiful)
Then i went to mum in laws and did her vaccuming for her, then had a bowl of japanese soup with udon noodles floating in it ( the first thing since brekky time!) it was sooooooo good.

Question..... how much weight is reasonable to lose in a week? i'm not too strict with myself but try to eat healthy balanced meals and do heaps of walking. i only lost 100g this week :!:

Hi Fiona,

about the weight loss in a week question...It really depends on your body. It is mecically recommended that you should aim to lose 1/2kg - 1 kg a week. However some people lose less, some people lose more.

If you are concerned about your own rate of weight loss, you could try to keep a food diary for a couple of weeks and see what is what. You would be amazed when you write it all down!! Once you have done that you may be able to see some adjustments that need to be improved in order to speed up your weight loss. I am not sure if you use full cream milk or full fat products, but if you do, try cutting down to low fat milk (Pauls Smarter White milk is a good starting point) I personally don't like skim milk, so I stick with low fat milk. By making simple changes, you would be amazed at how quickly things start shifting!!

Another factor in weight loss is fluid fluctuations caused by our bodies in general or being "due" for our monthlies, or even eating too much sodium.

I hope this is a help to you Fiona...keep up the amazing effort, you are doing great

Like the others said we are human and slip ups are part of the journey . We just dust off ourselves and pick up where we fell off.
