OriginalMel's progress!!!

Postby originalmel » Thu Feb 01, 2007 12:26 pm

ok, so i've made this decision to change my bad health habits, kick my sugar addiction to the curb, and live like a normal person (ie not thinking about food 24/7)

So it's been 4 days, and things are going great. My hands have broken out in a detoxy rash I get from too mch sugar, and I'm starving for carbs, but I had a salap with chicken for lunch and am feeling much better.

I'm trying not to weigh too much, but will probably do it anyway!

Next step = excercise.

Actually I felt buggered and hungry!!!

But i came home and had water, and a snack of carrot and celery sticks wih Tzatziki, and a banana.

This morning I did 'Bindi Kidfitness' with my 4yo. It's a good workout and she loved it.

hmmmm haven't excercised for 2 days, but I will go to the beach tomorrow with my 4yo and the baby, so i might just take the bike and walk with them.

My diet has still been great though, as it will be from now on. I lost some weight too, so that's good. Tomorrow hubby gets back from holiday, so I will be able to fill him in on my new life!!!

Well hubby came back from being away last night. It messed with my head a bit, because I've had the whole week to clear my head and stay motivated. Also a lot less to do with him away, so more me-time. I love him being here, but it means I need to be really strong to keep focused on myself. He is overweight too, and depressed at the moment. Usually that means we would eat crap together, while saying ok but we're starting a new crash diet tomorrow. That's not what it's about for me now though.

It's also hard because, like every overweight person, he knows everything about weightloss except how to do it! So whatever I'm doing, he's suggesting other things, or unwittingly not supporting what I'm doing. He means well, but I need to do what I think is right for me.

Anyway, today went well, but I'm mentally drained...

err my fiance is 50kg and cant put weight on. so im living with the opposite to you, however i know what you mean about people meaning well but you really wish they would keep thier opinions to themselves! lol. keep doing what you are doing mel and stay strong. perhaps hubby will follow suit when he sees how much more vibrant and healthy you are becoming. do it for you sweetie- not anyone else.

That's really tough, Mel. Hopefully though, if you stick it through (and you seem pretty damn determined...yay for you 8) ) he may well be inspired by you.

It isn't the same, but Ive been working hard on quitting smoking and I know my daughter, who smokes ( :cry: ) is watching me like a hawk and even though she doesn't seem to want to quit right now, I know secretly she's hoping I make it because it gives her some hope.

When the days start turning into weeks, you become more used to this new way of doing things and it really starts to show....so just keep going!

yeah thanks guys. I see what you mean with the smoking thing. Draco, thats a great idea about using your psychology to turn it around in your head. that's what I've been doing with sugary foods. Telling myself "ew, that's too sweet" (when really i could eat sugar straight), or telling myself I donlt like those foods.

My hubby will tell me that he's overweight bacause he just likes the taste of the food. Or because man is genetically programmed to eat alot when food is available!! Or because he doesn't have time to train enough. When really he needs to stop making excuses and just stop putting the food in his mouth, same as all of us. I keep telling myself "it's not rocket science", when things get complicated in my head.

Funny thing is, I'm not even finding this hard. But getting up to a large empty packet of chips, 2 ice blocks, and a container of juice makes me feel sad for him. Especially as I went to bed at 11pm, so he ate all that after then. He is really depressed, and it's tough to stay focused, but I will.

Everytime I think about eating a whole bag of m&m's or something, I think about the dissapointed feeling i would feel afterwards, and know that it's sooo not worth it.
