Slipping...

Postby Moomoo » Thu Apr 10, 2008 2:07 pm

It's started again...Weekends are getting more and more difficult - Wine and snacks are starting to creep in when they shouldn't be there!

Grr Why is it is SO difficult?!

Still being good during the day at work but am really starting to crave bad things. Like hot sausage rolls, Pastry blue cheese etc and it's taking every effort not to blow all my hard work away. I hate feeling like this :( :cry:

Hi Moomoo

sorry to hear that things are starting to slip. I just read a quote in CK:
"bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into but hard to get out of"
In other words try not to let your weekend binge and unhealthy snacks become a habit. Try to get away from the bad behavior as soon as you can. Find out why you are craving these foods? Find out how many calories are in those foods. A 130g sausage roll has roughly 375 calories!

I really hope you don't fall off the wagon, its a great one to be on! But remember a treat every now and then isn't to bad.
And remember its only difficult if you say it is.

I also find weekends extremely difficult, especially if I have nothing much to do except sit in front of the telly all day - weekends in the UK are miserable in winter/spring as it's always raining and coooooolllldddd and so I just don't want to go out! So therefore, all the contents of my grocery cupboard call out to me eeeeeaatttt meeeee! I am also on leave at the moment so similar problem, except that I am out most mornings, at least for a while. I don't have a problem with drinking wine or any alcohol because although I have a couple of bottles of red left over since christmas, I am not normally a drinker and so they don't call out to me at all. I find though, that if my cupboards are stacked with low calorie snacks, I don't feel that bad if I have one snack too many - like I did yesterday. I may not lose as much, but I won't gain either provided I don't go crazy. So my advice is just get rid of everything that is tempting and you won't be tempted.

I'm a British Ex Pat living in Australia so I know all about the crappy weather :lol: , mum called last week and said it had been snowing and my nieces where building snowmen in the garden with Grandma :D

I had a talk with Hubby 2 Be last night. I told him to tell me off if I go near any food I shouldn't and to not ask me if I want anything (when he gets the munchies and goes to the cupboard for snacks)

Another measly loss this week of 200g (I put ON 400g last week so I didn't even loose what I had put on! DOH)

Some great advice Tara :D Couldn't have said it better myself :mrgreen:

I love that quote, going to write it in my journal to refer to it, if and when I need it 8). I'm sure I will be. Moomoo we are all human and face struggles every single day. Some we can avoid others we can't.

It's silly to become a hermit just because you are trying to lose weight and why should you stop socialising purely for that factor. A while back I discovered that I can have just as much fun (even more)without the alcohol and the greasy food which follows a very large consumption of said alcohol :twisted:

And if you can't resist yummy wine then allow yourself to have 1 or 2 and turn to diet drinks and water for the rest of the night. Enjoy those drinks, don't skull them and you'll still get enough wine to give you the mellow effect.

Remember when we start saying NO to something, that's when we start wanting it more and more. By say YES I'm allowed to have wine on occasion (just not every night) then it won't become so tempting.

No more weighing, no more scales. My measurement is my success at health. It's an investment I make every single day. My priority: be healthy!

I also find weekends extremely difficult and know how you feel. Try to just get back on the wagon. I have come off that wagon as I have been sick and my gym membership has expired, but I am hoping to get back on track next week. Best wishes to you. Keep us informed. :D
