Weight, Weight Go Away

So today was weigh in day.

And I'm really tired of staying at this weight.

Really frustrated at this point actually. I've been at this weight pretty much for over 2 months. And at that point, this early in the weight loss journey, I have to accept that it's not really a plateau. I am eating myself into staying at this weight. Plus considering the exercising has been intermittent and the tracking non existant, I can see what the problem is.


Now I have a yoga tape where the instructor says "I invite you to get out of your own way." That pretty much sums it up for me right there.

So it was very timely to see a post from Jenelle at Appilogue talking about doing a u-turn in your own life to stop and restart. Definitely what I am needing in my own life. So I have my little notebook in hand and am writing down every little bite.

Every single one. No more of the "well i had a sugar cookie and then some toffee candy and that's really like a toffee sugar cookie eaten at different points of the day."

Now I still want to bake.I love to bake. And as therapy goes, it's relatively cheap. But offended coworker or not, I'm bringing the leftovers to work from now on.


  1. Sharing is definitely a good way to continue to enjoy baking but also not go overboard. How about halving recipes and then freezing most of it? That way you can still enjoy treats, but the immediate temptation is removed.

  2. I agree with Palidor & mostly on the first point as that way you get to enjoy the gratification associated with baking something nice, and also enjoy the happiness it brings your friends/ or family.

  3. You will be fine. Don't give up on your weight loss. It happens. Just remember that if you want something that you shouldn't have cheat small don't cheat big. And don't keep denying yourself either because when you do finally give in you will cheat big. Its your weight loss,add a little bit of exercise and everything will work out. Just a walk after dinner will cancel out the calories from that cookie.

  4. I just looked at your weight loss, you have lost 23 pounds in 2 and a half months. Really quite outstanding.

  5. Here's to new beginnings!

    I have the same downfall with baking. It's hard to give up completely because I really love baking and sharing with friends.

    Best of luck! Honesty with oneself is so very important when it comes to these sorts of things!
