Surely I can do this: weight loss at its....worst

I keep telling myself that I have this! I keep saying that this is my year.  I keep starting afresh!

Yet I keep failing!

How many failures does it take to get to victory?

Surely I can pull this together and lose weight!   

The only good thing?  I remain highly motivated to be healthy.   The disconnect is NOT with my motivation to do it.  The disconnect happens when it comes to actually carrying through with my plans!

I guess you could say that I am just kinda depressed about the whole process right now.  I’m down about my lack of ‘stick to it’ when it comes to reigning in my food.   I am utterly despondent about the aches and pains in my legs.  Seriously, a mile walk shouldn’t hurt!  And let’s not even start talking about the flair up of arthritis!  I am just disgusted with myself and where I have let myself get to!  I swore I would never get back here...yet here I sit!

I am walking daily.  (Gotta start somewhere and with my knee/arthritis I have to be careful).  I HAVE reigned in my eating...I’m at the top end of the range that I want to be within...but that is only 1450 calories so still pretty good.  So I’m not totally messed up.  Just messed up enough to NOT be losing!  This just blows!!

As a side note.  This past weekend I saw these little gems at the store!

Why yes...that is a THIN version of a Reece’s Cup.  They are individually packaged and thinner than the normal one!   And they are 57 calories versus the 110 calories for ONE of the normal cups. (Or 220 calories for one package of the normal sized cups).  For me...I can’t just eat half the package so when I eat a Reece’s cup I eat the whole package at 220 calories.   So this thin version is a great boon for me.  I can typically have room for a 57 calorie  treat...220 kinda not!   And yes I usually CAN stop at one package! Furthermore  I bought a bag of them at the store on Saturday and I have only eaten one!  So this is a good product for me!!!

I'm feeling the same way. Just kind of stuck and yet so motivated.

Those Reece's are a great calorie saver while still getting your fix. I'm doing much better this week with the candy. It helps that he didn't buy the kind I like this time lol.

I am a sucker for Reeses as well - I'll have to check them out!

I can't keep candy like that at home - my self control is too tenuous when it comes to milk chocolate...in fact, I made a point to not eat any milk chocolate for the month of February and I did much better with snack attacks, as it turns out. I had a little bit when we were visiting our daughter, but I'm aiming for the rest of March to be milk chocolate-free as well.

I love sweet things, and peanut butter cups are high on the list. I haven't seen the thin ones yet. I like individually wrapped items though, because I am the same way. I can't stop at half a package of anything!

But is there less peanut butter? Because I'm all about the peanut butter :)

Just keep trying and those failures will start turning into major wins!

I wish I had the answer for you but thats great about the reeses and even a small step in the right direction is still making progress no matter how little or small.

Not having it at all does help!!! I have been trying to do that with the snacks/sweet treats for Jason. Making/buying things that don’t tempt me overly much!

MaryFran said...

I figure it’s a great way to still live yet be healthier!

MaryFran said...

You go!!!!! That is awesome!!!!

MaryFran said...

Yes! It definitely has to be individually wrapped! For some reason I CAN stop with one package!

MaryFran said...

Surprisingly the peanut butter chocolate ration is not messed up. Don’t ask me how!

MaryFran said...

Baby stops will get us there!!!

I have to remove all sweets from the house. If I buy them for the kids i will eat them. Especially coca cola bottles, gummy bears and other such sweetness as that. My kids will have sweets in their rooms but they have control. I even get tempted to eat their sweets. It's bad. I'm ok with the savory things like chips etc but cookies, chocolate, candy... get it out of my house!!! If you can manage self-control, good for you!

I’m good with chocolate and candy. But cakes and cookies...no way!!!
