What is my problem?

motivational poster for counting caloriesI wish I knew. All of a sudden, even my husband is counting calories. Weird, huh? But me? I’m still sabotaging my own success. I guess I’m in that place in the road where I’m afraid of success. The last time I had success, it blew up in my face. What about now? What is my deal? Why can’t I stay on program?

What drives us to fail

In Day What?, Stupidity run amuck, wailing and moaning on June 18, 2009 at 6:41 pm

I guess you can see by the previous date that I gave up somewhere along the way. I think it started with the stupid camping trip and got worse from there. While packing for said camping trip, I packed my measuring tools. They were unpacked for me by my husband. When asked about it, he said, “You don’t need those for 4 days.” Apparently, I did. It was a downward spiral for me ever since. My friend stopped going to meetings, so therefore, I stopped going to meetings. All this is NOT the cause of my demise.  I alone am responsible for what goes into my mouth. I am the one who didn’t have a plan for food daily, let alone a plan B of what to do if plan A falls through.

What has driven me to fail? Myself, laziness, not caring about what happens to me.

I have to get myself out of this rut. Pray for me.

I can stop at any time

celebrity-pictures-cookie-monster-stop-anytime1You believe that, don’t you? You believe me that I can eat just ONE of those 100 calorie Hostess thingies. You believe that I can only eat the one serving of Doritos®. That I can stick to my points and actually know what those points are? Yeah…sure…right.

Last week, I went by the rules and stayed within my 28 points. I lost a piddly .4. I have a bad day this week and decide, “Screw it, I’m going to eat!” And eat I did. It started off an okay day, nothing unusual, and then hammered into a day when hades broke loose. I ate at least three helpings of that dang Kashi Go Lean® cereal, 4 Hostess 100 calorie snacks®, 1/2 bag of Doritos®, 1/4 bag of Cheetos®, “And a partridge in a pear tree…..”.

I expected the worst on the scale Saturday. If I lost my 5%, I felt I truly deserved to after that day. As I stepped on the scale, I thought “around and around she goes, where she stops, nobody knows..” like the wheel for the Showcase Showdown on The Price is Right©. It did finally stop. On 234.2! I had lost 1.2 lbs after all! So, what was the lesson learned? Always face the music on the scale, no matter how bad you think you screwed up.

Day 63

498e29797b6be_61193n1Sorry, I don’t have anything witty to put in the title today. It’s been 9 weeks ago today that I started WeightWatchers®, and I hit my 5% today!  I weighed in at 238.6, making my total to date: 13.2. Now I have to get to steppin’… see, I kind of made this bargain with myself that I’d start walking AFTER I hit my 5%.  Unfortunately, they gave us a sample of these Mint Cookie Crisp Mini Bars and let’s just say, I shouldn’t have ever bought a box. While they taste just like Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mints, they also are addictive. I must confess that I’ve eaten 8 of them.  That leaves me with 7 points left for the day. What an idiotic thing to do!
