Alright, here I go. First week was o.k. not too many slips. this second week was even better till I was babysitting yesterday and ate 3 hershey bars and some bread! Then, just like everybody else I beat myself up and feel like Jaba the Hut! Today is better, totally on plan, drinking lots of ice teas. I like the idea of of each having our own journal blog, I've never done one before, I am a member of the "If I dont write it down I didnt actually eat it" club., I am really going to do this this time. I have known Nancy for 2 years now! losing and gaining the same "first 20 lbs" about six times! Changing from Lexapro (antidepressant) to wellbutrin, I read that lexapro causes weight gain and I know the cravings have not been as bad these past few days since I started to change over.
well, more tomorrow. n

Thanks so much for all the support. I decided I would set a goal myself, one I think I can actually achieve, I tend to set myself up for failure when I set goals tooo big. anyway, I want to be in "onederland" by the time I go to the wine country with DH for our anniversary on October 6. (16 years!) that would mean I had lost a total of 22 lbs which is at least 14 more pounds in the next 5 weeks. I know things slow down a bit after the first couple of weeks but I still think I can make it.l Putting it down will hopefully make me more accountable.

Hi and Welcome,

I think your goal sounds reasonable. I like mini goals. I think it gives us a chance to be successful along the way to a bigger goal.
Reached Goal Nov 2007 61.5 lbs lost
Gained 11 lbs in Mexico 3/08, decided to lose that along with another 5 lbs!

impatience

Postby oregonrose » August 30th, 2007, 11:34 am

well, its Thursday, had some lite ice cream and crackers with butter at my friends house when I went over to check on her kitties while they are out of town. so if nobody sees me eat does that mean it doesn't count? HA! .8 up on the scale today, I guess its impatience. I've suffered and been good for almost three weeks, why aren't I thin yet? well, just 'fessing up, I really still feel like I'm more motivated and on track this time around, its really working!

Rose,

Since we can't regulate how fast we lose weight, why not set goals that we do have control over? For instance, you could set a goal to be compliant for a week, or 2 weeks, or until October 6.....whatever you can commit to.

To me committing to a certain amount of weight lost by a certain date is like committing to "it won't rain today"......just don't have control of that.

Just a suggestion. Hope you don't mind.

thanks for the suggestion. I give my hubby a bad time for getting mad at the weather - it was the perfect analogy to hit me between the eyes. Its a good policy to listen to those that have achieved what "I" want to achieve - and you have! Thanks for the support, n
