Default Getting Over This Hurdle So I Can Move On

I have been stuck between 273 and 275 for weeks. Not really a plateau, because I haven't been following the program at all. So today I am starting this thread to get me over the hump. I want to start losing again and make it to the 260's.

Anyone can join me no matter where your hurdle is.

I'm going to post on this every day until I get to 269.

Tueday's Eats

Breakfast

Donuts 10
Milk 2

McAllisters Half Club 10
Broccoli Cheddar Soup 5

Cheesy Gordita Crunch 10

Cinnamon Roll 8

Total 51

It's highly unusual for me to eat out this much in one day. I have ms and don't get out much, but we went Mall shopping today. I have a new grandbaby on the way in just a few weeks.

I was tempted to not post this, but I have got to change my habits and get my mind in the frame of I am on a diet every single day every single meal. And hopefully this thread will help me with that. (Since I am having trouble staying on any plan, I actually forget I'm supposed to watch what I eat. I have known for about 4 months now I have diabetes and I need to change my life style.)

What's the '10' next to Donuts? Is it Points?

today I've had:
B: Sausage and egg 398 cals; 4g carbs
L: Cold pork with rice and a fancy instant coffee 525 cals; 32g carbs
Snack: Oatcakes and cheese 215 cals 16g carbs
D: Large green salad, cherry tomatoes, sunflower and pumpkins seeds, smoked cod 223 cals; 4g carbs
Exercise: burned 173 cals (huh, it felt like more)

I have 39 calories to spare! Woohoo! Going to treat myself to a splash of milk in my coffee. I'm done for the day now.

I'm joining in too. I just broke out of the 200s and now am stuck between 199 - 198lbs. I had a kind off point weekend full of drinking and eating some food I probably shouldn't have so I understand why I'm stuck, but I'm desperate for it to come off. I slacked on my exercise routine last week too so this week I've been right on it.

I've already budgeted my calories out for my lunch/snacks today so this is what I've had:

Breakfast:
1/2 English Muffin, Whole Grain - 73 cal.
.5 Ounce of Crunch Peanut Butter - 83 cal.
1/2 Banana - 53 cal.
4.6 Ounces of Whole Milk - 76 cal.

Snack:
Coconut Water - 60 cal.
Small Cheese - 65 cal.
5.7 Ounces Raspberries - 54 cal.

Lunch:
2 ounces Brussel Sprouts - 30 cal.
2.5 ounces Sweet Potatoes - 58 cal.
1.1 ounce Chicken Breast - 61 cal. [before anyone gives me a hard time about this I have a REALLY hard time eating meat so that's about all I can deal with in one sitting]
1.5 ounces Bread Stuffing - 75 cal.

So far that puts me at about 700 calories. My target range is about 1200 - 1400 today. So I'm right on track.

Plus I did an hour of the fitness boot camp I do and have already had 34 ounces of water.

We can break our barriers with hard work and dedication!

Yes, I am counting WW points and I started the day our wrong. I started this post right after I ate them. lol

Welcome Audrina.

I'll work on my water and intake. I won't be able to exercise for a few days. I have wrenched my back and it's been in terrible pain for two days. Hopefully in a couple of days I can exercise again.

I haven't had anything but breakfast so far, I slept late this morning. Will be back to update.

The one thing I hate about the increased water intake is how much I have to pee. LOL

No more donuts pinkprincess! Get them away from you lol. When I was just starting out on my weight loss journey I had to throw away all the junk food in the house until I learned to control myself. Now I'm always surrounded by healthy food and it's fantastic. Plus, it makes it easier for me to stay on track every day.

I went up and edited today's info. I have got to do better, I have to. So no matter what I do, I will come in and edit everynight, until I get over this hurdle and do much better on my eating.

My back is feeling better tonight. Hopefully it will be ok in the morning, too, and I can exercise. I also need to get to drinking my water.

Thanks Ladies for your support, I will support you too.

Hi there pinkprincess.

I know for me that planning my foods in ADVANCE is vital. It's much easier to stay on plan, when you've got one. Eating healthy, adhering to a healthy lifestyle won't happen on it's own, it won't happen by accident. It takes a lot of pre thought, preparation and planning. You can't just wing it - not if you want to be successful. So why not plan out each and every meal and snack that will go into your mouth. This way when it comes time to eat, the thinking will already be done for you. You won't have to contemplate WHAT to eat, because you'll know. You would have mapped it out already. If it's not on the days menu, than you shouldn't be eating it. The good choices will have already been made for you. No reason to turn to bad choices. Because they're no longer an option. It's not on the days schedule.

"Failing to plan IS planning to fail." Really this had been EXTREMELY important to my success. Plan, plan and than plan some more.

You've got the ability to lose the weight. You are more than capable of it. Now set yourself up for success and take some positive pro action.

Thank you Rockin Robin, I had already decided last night to plan today's meals, but I really appreciate your post. Every word is true. And I will remember what you said throughout the day today.

Hi, PP, woohoo! You made your plan. That should help the hurdling!

Today my food is:

B: Sausage and egg 398 cals; 4g carbs
Snack: oatcakes and cheese 202 cals; 12g carbs
L: Chilli and brown rice 278 cals; 30g carbs


Looking at berries and plain yogurt for afternoon snack, tuna and avocado salad for dinner - got to go and do the calculations first.

Well done everyone! I didn't get a chance to eat my planned lunch or dinner yesterday [I actually didn't eat any lunch or dinner, well dinner was a bag of Smart Food Popcorn]...

So today's lunch is yesterday's lunch + 11.6 ounces of blueberries [186 calories];

Breakfast:
1 ounce [1/2] english muffin: 67 cal.
.5 ounce cream cheese: 49 cal.

So far my total calories for the day are: 527 and I have no idea what's for my afternoon snack [probably raw sunflower seeds] or dinner, but I'll be well in my calorie range today.

I also went to boot camp this morning, only two more days of that left in the week. I've been pretty good this week, hopefully the scale will show a difference when I hop on again.

I am in SUCH a rut right now and it's all my fault. I keep falling off my eating plan. So here is today's plan:

B: raisin bran, light soy milk, banana, 1/2 cup natural orange juice(no sweeteners! hand squeezed by me)
L: Hummus sandwich, snap peas
S: apple and peanut butter
D: whole wheat pasta with tons of veggies and tomato sauce, yogurt and almonds for dessert

Exercise: C25K for 30 minutes, a hike for as long as I want(I hike because it's enjoyable, not to burn calories)
