South Beach Diet - What have you done today that made you feel proud??

11-14-2006, 05:11 PM
Just thought this was kind of a cool let people see and write down the obctacles we all face and being able to write down the victory when we say no to them or writing down our exercise or sticking to the plan, then we can look back and really be proud of what we accomplished ((((Motivation))))
here I come!!

Today I stuck to my phase one and watched my hubby eat a double stack, fries and a coke and had not one bite of his food ;)...oh and did I mention the fried apple pie he ate afterwards??? :dizzy:

11-14-2006, 06:14 PM
Oooh, wow.. I'm not sure I could have done that!!

My thing that I'm proud of today isn't diet related, but I had an awesome day at work!

11-14-2006, 07:32 PM
Hmmm, well, I cheated and had a mini peanutbutter cup this afternoon, so for supper instead of having the Chicken Cordon Bleu that I had planned, I had a Morningstar Tomato & Basil Veggie Burger with some steamed broccoli to compensate for the extra calories.

Awsome ladies, lets keep this going :yes:

11-14-2006, 10:42 PM
Ok, second thing I did today that made me proud of me: I just pushed myself through a killer workout.:woops: Time to go shower off the sweat!!

Not losing my temper completely at work and quiting. I have been working so hard, extra hours, pushing myself to get this huge project done. Not one person in the supervisor group, oh I have 4 supervisors, said a word to me. No recognition, no acknowledgement, not even a "okay, good, here is some more work." NADA. :mad:
But you know what did happen. The laziest person in the office, the one that comes in late every day, the one that balances her checkbook, breaks into tears at least once a week because of some personal issue, one of the few senior members in the dept with no responsibilty assigned to her got an award. Not just an award, a breakfast along a few others in the company, and a gift for being such an outstanding employee.
It was very hard for me to watch. I am not one that usually seeks recognition, even I do something above and beyond my normal work. I get embaressed very easily. And yet, that really stung.
Everyone in the office had the mini tantrums. :congrat: I just congratulated her, asked one of my supervisors for another project, smiled and was very cheerful.
Why? Because I know in my heart I don't really answer to my employer for my hard work. I answer to God. He knows what a good job I am doing and when it comes down to it. That is more than fine with me.
And it would have been great to go out after work and eat junk food to make myself feel better, or so I thought ,when I left work.
Instead I worked out. :boxing:
Stuck with my routine and treated myself to a nice low carb hot cocoa with a shot of caramel extract.

I made amends with a friend today who stood a chance of letting me know that he'd rather not know me. Thankfully we're friends again.

I stepped up to the plate and took care of responsibilities that scared me, that were difficult but that an *adult* would do.

I know that's all vague but well, there it is anyway.

And, I stuck to my diet and still did my two miles!

I ate totally on program, I exercised. I had a talk with my son about healthy eating. He's "skinny" and has been skipping meals due to stress.

11-15-2006, 09:48 AM
Feels great to do the right thing in the end doesnt it ladies ;)

So far today...I took my youngest to Burger King because she forget to eat breakfast on the way to school and didnt order myself anything, she got a sausage biscuit and only ate half , she said if she is gonna eat something that isnt healthy she is gonna eat a smaller portion of it...I thought in my head....Go mom :cheer: for living that in front of her :yes:

11-20-2006, 11:28 AM
Thanks, Christian, for a great thread. :hug: Sounds like you're doing a great job modeling healthy living for your daughter. :)

I had protein for breakfast instead of the bread I was craving...'cause I knew it would make me feel better! :D

11-20-2006, 01:52 PM
Thanks beachgal ;)

Great job on your having protien for breakfast, seems like if I start the day out wrong it just makes me crave junk the whole rest of the day :shrug:

Today I ate with a few friends at the mission ( helping prepare for our yearly feast) and I only ate the green beans while they had spagetti and garlic bread, then I came home and had some taco soup...I can still hang out with the girls and be good and it made me feel just awsome to be able to enjoy their company and not have to let food rule over me :yes:

So what did you do today???

11-20-2006, 02:53 PM
I took my measurements today (my offical end of Phase 1) and I was thrilled to see that I lost a total of 4 inches (2" off my bust, 1" off my waist and 1" off my hips!)

11-20-2006, 04:33 PM
WAY TO GO KRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :dance: :carrot:

11-20-2006, 04:54 PM
I feel proud of myself for getting up this morning to work out. The house was freezing, (okay, it was only 59*, but that's still cold), and DH was nice and warm. But I got up and did my dvd and I feel better than I would if I hadn't gotten up!

Although I messed up this weekend.. I logged onto 3FC this morning and started over on phase I :yes:, I didn't just forget the whole diet because of one mess up.

11-20-2006, 11:26 PM

I went to dinner at an Italian place and passed up all of the following dishes:

Fettuchini Alfredo
Fried Mozzarella
Strawberry Cheesecake
Chocolate Cake
and some kind of apple streudal

These were all offered to me and about a foot away from me but i smiled and ate my Salmon and asparagus :) I was so proud when i got home!

11-21-2006, 08:29 AM

:welcome: RocknRoll, Way to go for staying away from all the bad stuff ;)

sunny- Doesnt it feel great after you are done exercising....its just doing it that is the problem :lol:

Today I reached a goal I did not think was even possible yet....the pair of 10 Levis I have had in my closet for about 7 years that I kept there for my goal pants, went right on this morning :cheer: I didnt have to suck in, lay down or anything, just zipped em up :carrot: I am so happy and I know that the last 4 pounds are not only doable but not nessesary to wear them :encore:

Oh and I am making peanut butter balls for my family and I have not had one, (did lick my finger though) LOL, Have a great day ladies!!

11-22-2006, 10:56 PM
Lori- Great attitude about keeping your cool at work. Heavenly rewards are far greater than earthy rewards.

It's great to hear about everyone's acomplishments.

I was most proud today because after I worked all day cooking in the kitchen I was able to still dance with the children and exersize during 'nap' time.

Before I was so worn out from standing all day that I would sit down or read books. I actually had energy today. What a new concept!


11-28-2006, 12:11 PM
I went to weights class today even though I totally didn't feel like. Tired now but definitely glad I went. Yaaay I'm proud of me.

12-02-2006, 07:51 PM

I am proud to say I have stuck to my plan for 2 days now and only gained a couple of pounds over the Thanksgiving holiday and not all the weight I lost in the first place :yes: :dance:

Nothing diet related but I'm still happy!

I've managed to gather up to 43 people that have the same mind set to lose weight in The Biggest Loser Challenge I'm hosting. I'm hoping now that they all stick around!

I've also done well enough in class and on homework I've brought my grade up to a 99.6% which is an A+.

I also have my mid term paper 75% done and its not due for another 2 weeks :dizzy: I thought it would take forever!

That's all for now
