How is everyone doing?

Today is the start of a new month. Let's do our best to stay on track and crush our goals!

Last month I didn't do too well, I actually ended up gaining 2lbs. I need to stay accountable this month and watch everything I eat. My biggest problem are the weekends, it is so hard to stay on track and I always end up over indulging.

Hi ladies. How are you both doing. My eating has been terrible die to stress eating. I don't even want to weigh myself. I also stoped working out. Had a lot of stressful carp happen and did a lot of emotional eating the last few weeks. The week before I started my overeating business i had protein shakes and low carb meal at dinner and I had a gain. Got discouraged and then I overate. Then did a bunch of.emotional eating on too many carbs. I am at the biggest loser for three days. Just finished day two. Everything here is very healthy. Lots of veggies, good oils, proteins. Carbs are either in the veggies or they do give you fruit. I am going to start strength training this coming week because that is what my fitness program is lacking. I think my focus is going to be exercise and phase one. i need to make sure I stay on plan with my food and my exercise. The weight will come.off. When I hit phase two I think I will add a small serving of strawberries or blueberries twice a week. Other than that my body does not do well with carbs,even whole grains. I am glad you ladies are keeping this going . Promise to post more!!

Hi Girl,
So glad you are back and I know Izzy will be also.
Maral, It is hard and just seems like this weight will not come off.
The scale misses with my head and when I seen even a small gain{And it does happen. I just go and eat every thing I have not been eating. and Then I get mad at self and get back on scale and see a gain{Wonder why?
So far this month is doing good for me. I have a small goal{And I think Izzy is with me-Lose for this month 2-4lbs.
If I lose 2 lbs a month is better then gaining.
Last couple days holding.As also want to eat bad when I get bored or stressed.
That should Not be the reason to over eat.
I just think maybe for us[Or should say me is to try to lose -6-8 lbs before New year.
We all have to pick what road to go on and try to stay on it.
There are so many diets and plans out there. We have to find the right one for us and maybe instead of 1plan it might take 2 plans together.
For me have to get back to Green smoothies and do 2-3 .
I got almond and cashew milk 25 cal for 8 oz.
I also have to get and stay with moving this body and should do weights. Muscle burns fat. As we age we lose muscle.
Today I have soup and 2 rice cakes
and 1 egg
and dinner I just made me 1/2 cottage chesse and 1/2 Navy beans. It was good and im full.
Tonight find something to have as a snack and no more then350 cals.
Maybe a smoothie[Small one.
Take care and u will be fine. As long as you talk and when in need u have Izzy and I to help pull u along.
You have come far girl.

Hi Maral, welcome back! Don't beat your self too bad. Everyone does fall out of the healthy wagon at some point and that is ok, the important thing is to hop back on and continue, and that is what you are doing

Do you keep a journal? I am an emotional eater and carb/sugar holic. For me if I restrict my calories too much, my cravings and stress goes higher and if I eat something out of plan I will over eat on it and then I will start binge eating. That is why I keep loosing and gaining the same 10lbs over and over. Be patient, trust yourself, you have come a long way and now it is going to be harder and slower because your body is getting used to it. Maybe is time to change it a bit.

Strength training is good but keep in mind that when you increase your training you also need to make sure you are eating enough for your muscles to recuperate so don't restrict your calories too much. You will need more carbs (in the veggie form of course) and moderate protein and good sleep. Also, at the beginning they will hold liquid so it might look like you will gain a few lbs, but when your body adapts to your new routine, you will lose those lbs (water gain) and much more.

Muscle burns fat.And as you age you will lose muscle mass and that is Not good.Your body needs. good fats and needs good healthy carbs and it needs good protien. and fiber. And I think You have to watch cals. to.
It does help to write down what u are eating . I do .
The thing we have to stop and reset is Our self and how we think.
But that said. Look at self. and see how how you have came. And the most importion thing is We started and still doing it.
Our bodies go up and down even when we are doing everything right and on track.
Just know you have 2 othrs and more people whom are in the same boat. Now By now. I should have been at my goal weight. But not real far and when i just keep hitting it and reading and doing all I can not only for weight loose. But for health and longer life and help that body do what it should.
I droped 1lb>.slow be good. Now another 2-3 lbs I will really be set.
And when we do make our goals. It will never be done. Still have to work it and watch.
Today starting my green smoothies. and use Matcha tea.Lets

Maral, sounds like you are ready for the week! Planning is so hard on me. I buy everything and then I just don't want to cook

My eating this past week was out of control. Dh, was on vacation and we were out pretty much everyday running errands. I ate so much out that my sugar and carb cravings were all over the place. On the weekend we celebrated my son's b-day. I ate a big piece of cake which makes me upset because I don't like cake but I was craving sweets and just gave in.

This week I want to clean my eating and hopefully I will be able to stay on plan. I am feeling tired all the time again and allergies are hitting me hard. I know this has to do with my poor eating choices so I need to take control of my eating and stick to it.

Hope both of you ladies have a great Monday!

Hi Janet and izzy,
Just quickly checking in!! Doing ok and on track. Glad to see you guys posting. I need to make a point of doing more posting!!!

Eating up the low carb meatloaf that fiancee made weeks ago. I had that leftover some leftover mashed cauliflower and veggies. Threw those in meal prep containers and in the freezer. I've been lazy and not feeling like making lunches so I've been grabbing them. I just took out the last container of zucchini soup out of the freezer . Hoping to find more zucchini at the farmers market Saturday to make soup and zoodles for the freezer for winter. Also hoping to.find some basil , more spaghetti squash, cauliflower (Going to rice and freeze) and some fresh tomatoes.

I had a rough patch with eating recently. We are all human ladies ! It is just important that we go right on track as soon as possible. You guys are amazing! You just basically have been getting right back on track and you both keep posting!! Definitely an example I need to follow! Thank you guys again.for being here!

~-)-)------- Rose for the both of you
