Welcome Back, Curvynotlumpy!

Great job Renee!!!! That fat is melting away. Yippee!!!

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again

Hello everyone. Last week I fell off the wagon with my food and isolated myself from this group rather than reach out for help. A typical behaviour for me. And then there was the 4th of July weekend. I did not go overboard and did get more exercise in and am now back on track. Didn't weigh 'cause I didn't want to know!

Thanks to the people who post here. I need your inspiration as well as your struggles. Will report my weight at the end of the week.

Smile Diet 911: After You Overeat

What to do after you've blown your calorie budget.
By Daphne Sashin
WebMD Feature
Reviewed by Brunilda Nazario, MD
http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/w...ter-overeating


Let’s face it: Everyone blows his or her calorie budget every now and then. But you can forget that old saying, “a moment on the lips, forever on the hips." You can get your eating back on track. Here's how.

First, Relax

You need some perspective. You need to eat 3,500 calories to gain one pound of body fat. One unplanned treat -- a slice of cake, some fries, or even a rich meal -- probably won't make a major difference on the scale.

“We call these ‘taking timeouts,’ and we all take them,” says San Antonio nutrition consultant Rebecca Reeves, RD. “No one is perfect in their eating habits. What we have to learn is that we are giving ourselves permission to do this, and as soon as it’s over, we should go back to the eating plan we normally follow.” The goal is to not make a habit of it.

“Most people overeat somewhere between 500 and 1,500 calories every single day,” says cardiologist Allen Dollar, MD, assistant professor of medicine at Emory University in Atlanta.

Don't Give Up

Too many dieters throw in the towel after a splurge, says Kathleen M. Laquale, PhD, a nutritionist and athletic trainer. “You may feel defeated and say, ‘Oh, I blew my diet … and the heck with it,” Laquale says. “When you do overindulge, don’t be self-deprecating. You overeat for one day; let’s get back on track again. Let’s be more conscious of our portion sizes the next day.”

Cut Back a Bit, But Not Too Much

Don't try to make up for the extra calories by skipping meals the next day. That just leaves you hungry. Instead, cut back throughout the day with a series of small meals packed with fruits and vegetables. Their fiber will help you feel full, says Joan Salge Blake, RD, clinical associate professor at Boston University.

Wait until you’re hungry. Then have a light breakfast such as a bowl of low-fat yogurt and berries.

Mid-morning snack: a piece of fruit and an ounce of low-fat cheese

Lunch: a big salad with lean protein such as fish or chicken, or a whole wheat pita pocket with lettuce and tuna or turkey

Afternoon snack: a cup of vegetable soup and an orange

Dinner: a piece of fish and plenty of vegetables

Skip the Scale

After a feast, you may weigh more. That’s not because you gained body fat, but because of water retention from extra salt that was in the food you ate. So don't weigh yourself. Salge Blake tells her clients to weigh themselves on Fridays, when they’re likely to weigh their lowest, since people tend to overindulge more often on the weekends than on weekdays.

Stick to Your Normal Exercise Routine

Exercise is a good idea. But don't do a mega-workout to try to burn off all the calories you just ate. “If you overload and do more than your regular routine, you could strain a muscle, you could hurt a joint. So muscle soreness may set in. Then you can’t exercise,” Laquale says.

Track What You Eat

Set a goal for your daily calories, and write down what you eat. That helps you stay aware of what you’re eating, Dollar says. "You have to be conscious every time your hand goes from a plate to your mouth.”

I am back from vacation. My hubby and I went to Washington DC. I planned and prepared.
For the trip down I blended 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk with frozen black cherries and frozen peaches. OMG! Yummy low calorie and "treat-like"
I cut up carrots and persian cucmbers and celery. I had those for snacking.
Every place we went to eat had fresh vegetables, salad, avocados, portebello mushrooms and salsa,(no sugar added).
I did not lose my resolve to olny nourish this one body I have with healthy loving foods.
I did it.

I can only imagine how empowered and in control you must have felt, Lucindaarrowspark! While I've never experienced this in vacation mode, it's exactly how I feel when I plan my meals and stick to them.

Well Ladies, this week I tried a little of this, and a little of that, and then little of this, and a little of that. All the little bits added up way to quickly to be a big bunch of ......you guess it, pounds in fat. This week shows a 2 pound gain.

Yes, it takes more than portion control. It takes moderation. I'm back to cracking the whip at myself this week.

Hi Everyone! Am back from my week vacation, and feeling well rested. Goal while away was to maintain. Weight is up 0.4 lb, that is ok. Onward from here.

AAD , your losses continue to be steady and consistent – way to go!

Renee, you seem to have hit your stride and are showing awesome losses – Yay!

Corinna , I overdid and over indulged a little while on holiday, but am back on plan now too. Sometimes going a little off track can give you the clarity you need to head in the right direction.

Bonnie, We are here to support and encourage you no matter what – we won’t judge, we have all been there!
