MRC January 2014

My goal is to stay on plan without cheating until I lose the rest of the weight. And then be able to maintain.

I did really well until Christmas Eve. Then it all went down hill. I have now been off of plan since then. Today is my first day back on plan. I have figured out that any sugar is a trigger food for me. If I take even one bite I crave it badly!! This is going to be a hard week while my body gets rid of the cravings. Any support/ inspiration I can get right now is very welcome. ;)

Aschooley, that happens...

The big thing is that you've acknowledged it, and are now back On program.

I had some chocolate chip cookies and chocolate pie on Christmas myself. The next day, I didn't feel well at all. I was lightheaded in the morning when I got out of bed, and just not myself all day. I'm pretty sure it was the sugar... I got rid of the rest of it by making sure the the cookies went away & my daughter ate the last of the pie... Not that good for her either, but she can stand the calories.

I love sugar also, but have also found that it does not love me. I binged and ate a bunch of Christmas goodies. The next day I had stomach cramps and had a hard time eating period.

I have not stepped on a scale since the 19th of December. I will go step on tonight.. oh am not looking forward to this as I have NOT been a good girl. :/

Well, am back on track today... and will stay there tomorrow! I so want to get rid of the last of the weight...

My goals for 2014 are:

Stay in maintenance range
Be open to career possibilities
Climb what passes for a mountain in Texas
Spend more "off" time with DH

Lady67 01-03-2014 11:59 AM

Well, ya do silly things, ya reap the consequences. I binged and ate sugar and gained 2 lbs!

Have been on track for 2 days now. I will get those 2 lbs off...

Problem is on Jan 12 I am flying out of the country... and have no idea what food there will be for me to eat. I cannot take my HNS etc, so will have to just be "mindful" of what I eat.

On a positive note, for 2014 my goal is:

Loose the remaining weight and enter maintenance.
Look at new career options or start my Master's degree.
Find peace.

Happy New Year's everyone. May your 2014 be wonderful.

I almost caved. In fact, I was actually getting up to go to the kitchen to eat off plan...until I picked up my baby and she'd messed completely through her outfit. She needed a bath, and that took my mind off of snacking off plan. Woohoo? ;)

My resolutions:
Lose remaining pregnancy weight
Clean out and organize the cellar
Volunteer consistently with the local Pregnancy Care Center

MarleneV 01-03-2014 10:50 PM

Lady Why can't you take your HNS? I did on all of the trips I took while on program (and still do because I'll have one a couple of times a week)? Where are you going? Have a great trip!

Ashley, whatever works, right? Glad that it was a good distraction.

Lady67 01-06-2014 08:33 AM

I am going out of the country and they do not allow food/drink to be brought into this country.

Hello, my name is Billie. I am new here, today is my first day on the program. I did it years ago and had great success. I am glad I found this forum. I live in a small town and our center is only open three days per week.

Lady67 01-07-2014 09:50 AM

Hi Billie :)

Welcome! This is a great place, I have gotten some fantastic support from the ladies here. It is nice to be able to talk through things with people that are going through it at the same time.

Hi . I am not new to the boards for MRC. I belonged a couple of years ago. I have managed to gain all back plus due to stress and other factors. I am going to go back on program beginning tomorrow. I have the diet and most of the supplements. The girls at my center are great and I will probably go visit them when I run out. This plan works. It is tough to get started but I am hoping the tightness of my clothes and talking with all of you will help to keep me titivated. The first couple of weeks are the toughest. So, here we go.

The trackers are part of a signature, and I don't believe you can edit your signature until you have so many posts on the site.

Thanks, I thought I was missing something. :)
