 placemark entry to show weight gain for June 2013

Weight: 213.0

Totally and completely off-plan for the past week and I paid with another gain.  I've been racing quite a bit the past few weeks and it's been very easy to just slip back into the bad eating habits.

Starting off with a Slimfast shake this morning.  Have a large container of water at my side.  Tonight is the monthly meeting of the NW Christian Car Club.  We always have pizza.  I've eaten pizza 4 or 5 times over the past 10 days.  I love pizza, but am thinking about trying to skip eating it tonight.  I could really use a "win".  I haven't decided one way or the other, so will see how it goes.

Progress as of today: 56.6 lbs lost so far, only 38 lbs to go!

THere is a car club in our area that meets at my fav pizza place too. Do they pre-order pizza for y'all or do you get to order? If you can also order, get a big salad and cut 1 piece of pizza up in bite size piece and throw it in the big salad. Ask for dressing on the side and only dribble a little dressing in it to barely moisten it. Then you can enjoy the flavors of the pizza and get a filler with the salad. Have a great evening!

I'm very glad to see you back on here. You really haven't done that bad. Look at all the crap you lost. I know "all too well" what you been going through. When I'm away from my regular routine day...you can lose where you're supposed to be. The good thing is that you're back with our flock and repenting. Stay with it, Pal.

skinnygrlwithin on 05/28/2013:
It's always tough when you don't really have a choice for your food. If you can find time to eat enough before this meeting I say try and skip the pizza... you'll be happier with your choice. If not, and you can order I'd definitely go with the above suggestions!

grannyannie on 05/28/2013:
Pizza is so hard to resist! I'll be faced with it at least 3 times on my upcoming trip.

Mskitty on 05/28/2013:
PIZZA! I miss it but not as much as I miss my body that was 40lbs lighter than I am now. Pizza even though sometimes it can seem like a healthier choice then somethings- its really laden with the worst types of carbs.

Whenever you see it you should try visualizing something negative - like a stick of butter or an extra chin or something. I find I have been able to stay away from things when I constantly use a visual que to remind me of what that food truly represents to my body.

Friday - Sunday were setup, race, teardown days.  I stuck to Slimfast shakes and meal replacement bars for breakfast / lunch.  Dinners I went out with the guys and had pizza 2 nights, burger & fries on Sunday night.  I was starving by the time dinner came around and ate 1/2 of a thin crust large pizza on both Friday and Saturday.  Sunday I was having to change tires during the brief lunch break so succumbed to eating 8 or 9 Twizzlers as lunch.

Today I'm back in the office mulling over the race weekend and trying to relax / decompress.  I'm also back to a controlled eating environment now, although there is another 2-day race weekend this Sat/Sun.

ohioraven on 05/20/2013:
wow, Dude. thats a 7 pound loss. Awesome !

graindart on 05/20/2013:
7-lb loss after a 3-lb gain the week before. To be honest my weekend eating has been so messed up that to get an accurate weekly assessment I should probably be weighing in on Thursdays or Fridays instead of Mondays.

nenak on 05/20/2013:
Still 4lb down well done

skinnygrlwithin on 05/20/2013:
It's always hard trying to control your eating when your normal environment is changed and your options are limited. Sounds like you did a decent amount of work though over the weekend so don't be too tough on yourself.

grannyannie on 05/20/2013:
It's so tough to eat right when we go out! Have a great week.

V on 05/20/2013:
Congrats on your loss! Have an awesome week :)

After seeing the weight increase yesterday I decided to do a drastic change for this week.  I've been relaxing my eating habits over the past few weeks and have been slowly slipping back into the mentality that I can eat whatever and still keep losing weight.  My caloric intake has been creeping up each week and this week I'm going to be much more strict and try to limit my calories to a much greater degree.  

Yesterday I ended up with 3 low-carb Slimfasts and water.

Before anyone comments, "yes" I know that a very low caloric intake of less nutrional food isn't something that is optimal nor sustainable.  It is a one week exercise in getting back in control.  (It may only be a 5 day exercise due to races this weekend.)

Progress as of today: 52.4 lbs lost so far, only 42.2 lbs to go!

Puddles on 05/14/2013:
Sometimes you just have to try something new for a while and get back on track. Good luck and have a great day.

skinnygrlwithin on 05/14/2013:
I understand where you're coming from... I also cannot judge since if I had a bad weekend I used to not eat at all on the monday following to get back on track. You just have to find what works for you and do your best to always keep your goal in mind... but we all have our moments.

Well, I've been off my eating plans several times this past week.  I didn't expect a loss, but I definitely didn't expect that much of a gain.  Oh well, back to being more mindful of what I'm eating this week.

Progress as of today: 52.4 lbs lost so far, only 42.2 lbs to go!

skinnygrlwithin on 05/13/2013:
I completely understand... it's amazing how quickly we gain the weight back! Don't worry you can do this!

Puddles on 05/13/2013:
Funny how easy it is to put it on and so hard to take it off. Have a good week. You know what to do.

Yesterday went alright.

B - Slimfast

L - leftover chilli w/ cheese & onion

S - buttered popcorn (went to movie)

D - chicken alfredo spinach pasta dish w/ cheesy garlic bread

Water intake was ok.  Didn't feel like it, but went to the gym anyway.  Was fine once I got there.  15 minutes elliptical, 15 minutes bike, 15 minutes treadmill

Progress as of today: 55.6 lbs lost so far, only 39 lbs to go!
