Good ideas girls- I really like the idea of eating some nuts or something quick and high cal to make my points amount if I'm short. Trust me, I'm sure this won't be a common problem! I couldn't believe when I got home this morning a plugged my foods into the points calculator and was that short! I'm sure I'll make up for it this weekend! No, I won't- I will try to be good..

Thanks ladies!

 

Sarah - It's funny because the meeting I went to yesterday was all about eating in a that's sustainable for life. The big thing they also said is that you will actually lose more wieght by eating all your points than skimping. You have a tougher situation that most people though -it must be so hard to work crazy hours and find the time to sit and eat a good meal. I think if you even just bring somethings that are easy to pack and easy to eat while you work you could really get all those points in and lose MORE weight! (plus you get to eat... which I love). The nuts are a great idea in my opinion - especially almonds. At WW they told us we're suppose to be trying in incorporate 2 tsp. of olive or canola oil a day into our meals. I thinkt he almonds would also meet this requirement because they are high in Omerga 3s

 

Good work so far!cheer2.gif

I ate way more than I should of this weekend. On friday night I used up all my flex points and then today when I counted up ther points I realized i was way over! Anyway - what can I do now for the rest of the week to try and still have a loss on Thursday? crybaby2.gif

 

Any ideas? I guess exercise might help... which I should do anyway. I feel sad about it because last week I lost and I felt so jiggy.gif about it. It's like I'm subconsciously sabotaging myself! Sigh... any advice from those who maybe have gone through it before?

 

ineed to stop mad2.gif myself too because that isn't helping anything either.. thoughts?

Just try to think of it like this. You didn't gain the weight in one day, and you aren't going to lose it in one day, and you aren't going to sabotage it in one day either! THis is the race of the slow and steady. If you are good until your next weigh-in, I know you will lose!

Good point ladies! Thanks for the encouragement :)

 

I just need to be really diligent for the rest of the week (and beyond of course) so I can lose even just a pound...

Hey Kash,
Drink LOTS of water and reduce your starch intake. Don;t cut it out, just reduce it. No starches after 2:00 PM. Eat a lot of protein, veggies and salad.

Also, a little trick to a good weigh in is to not eat starches the night before weigh in. Starches (pasta and bread) will make you retain water (which is not really a gain, but will apprear that way for a couple of days after).

Don't give up. So you screwed up one day. Just dust yourself off and get right back up!

Kash, I totally understand what you're going through. I'm the #1 worst person ever for sabotaging myself when on a diet. I think you've already gotten some great advice, the best thing I can say is don't beat yourself up over it, and (preaching to myself here too) don't continue to be bad one day just because you screwed up one meal. Go on with the diet just like you didn't mess up.

I used all my flex points up in one meal on Friday night (ate 1/2 pizza and a glass of champagne!) but made myself behave the rest of the weekend- it was soooo hard! But, I lost 3 pounds this first week, today was weigh in, and I only worked out twice last week. I know the first week you usually lose the most, so I'm hoping I will still continue to lose at least something every week. I was kinda hoping I's lose a little more my first week, but I guess I did use every flex point I had.

We'll see how week 2 goes. Keep it up Kash- I'm cheering for you!cheer2.gif
