Subject: BS: Accountability - No Foolin'! April 2009
From: katlaughing
Date: 31 Mar 09 - 09:40 PM

Tomorrow, April Fool's is my weigh-in day. I have had a birthday every day for the past week, so have failed miserably. Tomorrow, I start anew. Thus this thread is a tiny bit early. Please post your goals, etc. and carry on as before. We've been at this for over a year now, can you believe it?!

Weight Watchers online is focussing on spring cleaning and decluttering. There are several articles. I've copied part of one which I though some of us might find helpful. I will post other excerpts once I've read them and if they seem of interest. I debated about whether to put this in here or the decluttering thread, but since it deals with eating, I decided on this one. Here 'tis:

We spend too much, we buy too much, and we eat too much. In the same way we surround ourselves with so much clutter, we overwhelm our bodies with caloric clutter. Almost all of us are carrying extra pounds that we just can't seem to shake.

The stuff in our homes becomes too much to deal with, but we keep shopping. Similarly, the increasing weight of our bodies becomes more than we are able to handle, but we keep indulging.

So how do you stop the cycle? You need to recognize that your choices have consequences. Every time you pull out your credit card to buy another pair of shoes, you're making a choice to add to your clutter. Every time you take a bite, you are choosing to bring that piece of food into your body and adding to your weight problem.

Keep this in mind: Every roll of fat on your body came from something you chose to put into your mouth. And every pound that slips away is the result of a decision you made. Before you take control, you need to understand emotional clutter and physical clutter (see the Decode Your Clutter box below). Most people have at least some of both, and it's no easy task to get a handle on either. We have broken the task into two phases to show how to clear that clutter from your life. It sounds easy, but it takes forethought and commitment. Here's how to get started:

Phase 1: Declutter your mind
If you acknowledge your emotional clutter (the unhealthy habits that lead you to overeat) and find ways to deal with it, the weight will fall away. But as soon as you let your emotions — be they depression, anger, or joy — make your eating decisions for you, the weight will creep on. Do some personal spring cleaning to break the habits that steer you in the wrong direction. Use this checklist to get started. Post it on your fridge or carry a copy in your purse.

1. Do a reality check: The fat didn't appear overnight and won't disappear overnight.

2. Imagine the life and body you want and hold that idea in your mind; refer to that mental image when you're swayed by unhealthy foods.

3. Organize where, how, and what you eat—it's the first step toward achieving your ideal body. Take time to plan out your meals.

4. Determine what your goal is for your body (to fit into your favorite pair of jeans or to be able to run a mile, for example). If a food doesn't help in your efforts toward achieving that goal, don't eat it.

5. Live in the present, not the past or the future. If you're eating for emotional reasons, home in on why. Anger? Despair? Fear?

6. Make mindful eating a way of life. If you don't, the fat will creep back on. Celebrate every meal; it will remind you of the great things a meal provides, beyond food.

I'm worried about weighing tomorrow; all weekend on camp food; better than average camp food, but still not what I usually eat.

On the other hand, I was running around in the woods all weekend.

Sang my heart out.

I weighed in last night and I've managed to lose another couple of pounds in what has been a hard week for lots of reasons but I am back to exercising. Walked 6 miles in total yesterday and did an hours step aerobics.

Today my friend and I walked to a beautiful park with the kids and fed the ducks. Walked about 4 miles pushing buggies but it was lovely chatting in the sunshine and watching the kids run around playing.

Got one more dress size to drop but I'm doing it gradually so I stand more chance of keeping it off.

For me, it's Yoga Challenge Month. This means I can do an incredible amount of yoga for dirt cheap....Thirty Days for Thirty Dollars. There are 3 classes offered each day and you can go to one or all three, it's up to the participant. Today I stayed for 2 classes (back to back). The first class was more stretchy and the second class was kick ass. I feel SO good after yoga!!!

That makes 2 hours of yoga for me today!

HAPPY APRIL!!

Good for you, Michelle!

MAG, I'll bet your weigh-in will be fine! Mine was terrible...I went off the rails for my b-day and the scales show it.

Ah, well, starting over with a brand new week and month. I have done 10 minutes of stair climbing, up and down a flight and also qi gong for twenty minutes for the first time in ages. I think I've been sliding by on housework and outdoor cleanup exercise, which is okay, but I need to do more, so it's back to qi gong, free weights, and maybe the treadmill after I see the ortho guy later this month.

Happy April, indeed! On my way to a better day!

I am back from NZ on 5th April, and I think I will forego my weigh-in on 6th: I have seemingly put a "bit" of weight on, if the mirror and my less haggard face is to be believed. (I don't think they have heard of low calorie out here)!
However, the garden has been neglected for nearly a month, spring is hopefully sprung, and I have to get moving on getting things cleared so that there is room to store the kitchen units when they come out. All (hopefully) good physical stuff! I might even get the bike out!

Well Well; the scale was at 189 this morning. I had been 193 - 195 for awhile, so I must have been hovering at the edge of a plateau.

Now I'm watching salt before I have to go to the doctor's next week; amazing how it really does affect blood pressure ..

Little pickup group played for a contra dance benefit for the food bank -- poured rain; not a lot of people.

Now a book, and bed.

We've had a good day. Went to Morgan's science class which winds up with thirty minutes of running around a gymnasium chasing balls and hoops. Came home, had lunch, then made the WW chocolate chip muffins with a slight modification. I was out of applesauce, so used peach juice and a little water. Also added a bit of high protein granola. They came out a little sticky, but very, very delicious. Morgan was quite pleased as was I.

6:15am Yoga class complete with sun salutations with long held holds in each step. Can I just say that long held planks are a bitch before 7:00am? My arms did NOT want to participate this morning....they were complaining saying that all they should be holding at that time of day is a toothbrush not all 872 pounds of ME! I told them to hush and held the pose anyway!!!

Otherwise, still stuck at 15, lots of dashing about yesterday but no actual excercise... weigh in tomorrow will be the last for 3 weeks... ho hum.

I was 191 at the Y yesterday; so I'm fluctuating between 189 and 191.

Better than 193 - 195.

I'll just work to keep the small yo-yos on the downward trek.

People at work tell me I'm shrinking into a shadow, which is silly.

I say 60 down, 40 to go (actually 65)and they say no way.

I say, way.

Last diabetic A1C was 6.1 -- my doc is happy but I want 5 - the point at which the percentage of complications drops signigicantly.

At my "peak" it was over 10; critical.

Yoga: 60 Minutes, learned a new bine (can't get into it just yet) and a new pose....I have NO idea what it's called but here's kinda what it is:

   Stand on left foot. Reach behind your body and grab your left foot. Pull left foot towards butt, giving yourself a quad stretch. Next, push your foot into your hand and lift the left leg up behind your body.   Lean forward so your body makes a T. Keep lifting that back leg up, toes should be over your head. Right arm goes out in front, superman style. It's a balance and I can do it.....amazed myself!!! Great quad stretch! If you decide to try this, it's best to start near a wall and wean yourself back as needed.

Been a couch potato this weekend... watching recorded TV so that we can delete a load of stuff to make room for what I'll miss when in New Zealand... but have been doing yoga stretches and stuff whilst watching so not a complete vegetable!

I'm not holding out any hopes for losing weight over the next 3 weeks... not only will I not have my usual scales to weigh in on, but I shall be eating when I can, when it's available and if it's cheap or free! Hopefully though, we'll get a fair bit of walking in.

Yesterday: Hiking in the woods, about 8 trips up and down to the fourth floor via the stairs.

Today: More running up and down the stairs (my room is on the 4th floor) and some yummy yoga at Kripalu. I highly recommend this place to anyone!!!

The thread may be less active, but I'm not.. lots of walking but as far as eating goes, it's been chocolate and buns all the way!

15 mins of yoga on the back steps this morning, to the accompaniment of parakeets, tui and sparrows... bliss!

Thanks to a sleepless night I was up and made it to the Y and did my full nautilus circuit.

I found some granola sweetened apparently with chicory; no sweeteners listed. It's still pretty carby but at least it's worthwile fiber.

A cusotmer brought these obscenely good chocolate thingys to us yesterday and I'm afraid I was bad. Chocolate does that.

Kat, take care and don't rush about getting worse. Take it easy with the bronchitis or it really will become pneumonia.

Had another wander around the site today... met a goat and some cows. Not a lot of walking planned today, and it's raining out so no yoga to the accompaniment of the birds. Whatever 94.5kg is in proper money, that's what I am. I blame the barbie on Saturday!

First weigh in this week since 9th March... 2lb off! I was flabbergasted, as I felt I had gained.

HOWEVER it was a warm day and I was wearing lightweight clothes, and I had not eaten since lunchtime....

4 mile walk today. 45 mins spinning class followed by an hours body balance, then an hours step aerobics. 3 classes back to back is a bit of a killer but I enjoyed every minute of it.

We took the kids to the park this afternoon so more running about!

I've got my goal insight!

Went to get weighed this evening... no-one there, so came back again. Just as well, by my reckoning I've had 4 breakfasts and 3 dinners in just over 24 hours.... and of course, none of it was healthy stuff!

If it's Wednesday, this must be Dubai!

Still 190 at the Y this morning. I'm stuck on a plateau. I just need to keep on track and remember it will start coming off again eventually.

I HAVE had potatoes twice this week; starch does not help.
