I'll see you on Monday...

Postby Mom23 » May 12th, 2006, 5:59 am

My stepson is getting married on Sunday evening. We are driving up to Baltimore tonight.

I would like to ask for prayers for our trip and for me. My weightloss has plateaued and even though I've remained the exact same weight for two weeks, I am still a little :cry: discouraged. -- especially when my first self-imposed mini-goal was to have lost 30 pounds by the wedding. I have tried drinking more shakes (instead of my beloved puddings), drinking more water, and not eating beef for my L&G... I had hubby pull out the scale this morning because I told him that I HAD to know what I weighed before we left town -- still the same! :x

Anyway, there's going to be lots of temptations in my path this weekend and even though I've planned out my meals, I'm so afraid that evil :twisted: voice is going to tell me that I can 'cheat' and just re-start when we get home... Hubby says he hates it when I go on weight loss programs and get discouraged because I become so down on myself and obsessed.

I have been praying that my attitude would be better and that God will teach me to be patient and see the 'bright' 8) side so I won't give in.

Have a great weekend everyone and I'll check-in when I get back home and to my 'puter! :puter:
RE-start date: 10/27/06 (33lbs lost; 12 gained=21 lost on MF prior to re-start)

Funny thing, if you don't make cheating an option, mom, it won't happen. Just a thought.

Serendipity is so right! Keep to your plan, and the hungries will stay away. :x I just tested it out on an eleven day trip, and it really works! And think how good you will feel and look when you get back!

Have a wonderful time and enjoy the friends and family who will be there at the wedding! We'll be waiting to hear all about it!

Stay strong. You are doing great. Your family should be so proud of you. I think of those "food demons" frequently. But, I realized today that as long as my kids are with me, I can't cheat. We had lunch with their track team. A mexican restaurant, no doubt. I ordered a grilled chicken taco salad with no oil or butter on the chicken. I didn't even think about the guac or sour cream and cheese, not to mention the refried beans. Anyway, the salad came out when everyone elses ooey and gooey and oh so cheesey food came out. What did my 4 year old say?? Mom, I don't think that is on your diet. You can't have cheese and sour cream, and those are not green beans. They are brown. My five year old claims to know the phone number to "the diet place" and he has threatened me numerous times of calling them and letting them know that I plan to cheat. He politely asked the waitress to take my salad back and get rid of "the bad junk" because "we want our mom's heart healthy, not full of farts". Go figure. I guess they really do pay attention. Have fun and be safe!!

All the posts are great..they are exactly what I would say. I know how proud I am of myself when under temptation I stay focused and do not make excuses to cheat. You have had tremendous success and I know it makes you feel wonderful. I had 2 weeks of hardly any loss too but guess what on that 3rd week it has started to come off again. Set yourself up for success I know you can do it!!!
