Phil's Daily Journal... it could get ugly :p

Post  Phil on Fri Apr 23, 2010 2:21 pm

Friday 23rd April 2010- Ok so today was a horrid horrid HORRID day for me... to spare you details this whole week has been nothing but disaster especially after last week having a great run and losing 6-8 pounds! Today i was basically not on the diet Sad

It's actually depressing when its not going to plan... its not that the motivation isn't there (although it is slipping) it's like im self sabotaging and i don't know why... I WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT... I NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT (not just for aesthetic reasons but for my HEALTH as well!!!


oh btw i haven't been drinking nearly enough water either Sad

Its okay Phil, you'll get it.

Don't throw in the towel after one bad day. Hang in there.

Picture yourself fit and trim (especially when you wnat to stray from the diet)
Remind yourself that whatever you are about to eat won't taste nearly as good or as satisfying as being thin and fit feels.

Tell yourself over and over, good luck I hope today goes better.

Phil,

You sooo remind me of... well, ME! lol I do the same thing... great 5 lb. run... followed by 1 little tiny slip, followed by a downward spiral. lol I was basically off the diet today too, and I agree, I HATE it! I need advice as well, so I can't really give it to you but I can jump on and off the wagon w/ you until ONE OF US FIGURES it out and can help the other! haha! Everyone here gives such great advice... I am so grateful for this forum so I will let you know when I find out what helps me! Message me any time!

Lol Rachee08! Your so awesome! I really want to do well on this... Seeing how everyone has done so far is very inspiring but I guess I'm weak willed... This morning I woke up so determined to do well... I even woke up at 6pm and exercised! But then close friends of mine had a funeral/memorial service for there father and then they had the wake afterward which had food and everything and I ate (not much but enough to confuse me and throw me off balance ergo causing me to throw in the towle) but I don't think I've had that much so far today other than the wake I had a sandwhich and a half for lunch... And for dinner it might be a spinach rice dish my mum made... FML lol sooo depressing... I want a miracle to make me stick to the diet... Which btw I know I can stick to cause I've done it before...!

I have been pretty good today so far! not breakfast, walked a mile and a half, did have my OJ but w/e... lol I'm not ready to sound the victory cry yet though, its only 11:45!! haha, but we can do this! Isn't it weird how you notice all the "out of the ordinary" events that take place when u r trying to diet? Its an everyday thing... I guess they're pretty ordinary after all... Razz hang in there!!!

Post  Phil on Thu May 06, 2010 6:31 am

I've decided to keep journaling regardless of how i'm going... so I will probably be looking back at this sometime and thinking "wow! i had more bad days then good!"

Anyway...

So i was fine this morning had a HUGE cup of tea with some milk (shouldn't have but it wasn't that much compared to the cup lol- its more of a vase Razz ) with sweetner (you know the stuff that contains no sugar but is sweet anyway... like steiva (sp?) but not lol)

then for lunch i had a wrap... but i kinda got confused cause i filled it with too much filling and ate the inside then the outside (i mean i ate the whole thing slowly, but sometimes picking at the insides before taking a bite of it as a whole into my mouth... make sense?...) it felt like way more than 5 bites then i was feeling guilty anyway so i had a wrap with nutella.... Ehhkkkk in reality if the wraps were only 5 bites i would have only had 10 bites *hurry for me if that was the case! alien <-- the alien's antlers (i know there not antlers but i dont know how to spell antenna's) looked like little itty bitty hands and i thought it was cheering for me... @_@ *ima freak i know**... BUT because the first wrap was filled with vegies and stuff i got confused... normally i would have a wrap with some meat and vege and it wouldn't be a problem but by having it fuller than usual made me think i stuffed up... and so of course me being me im in that "i don't care ill have what i want then on the diet strictly again tomorrow"

but at the moment i am going to stop myself (had a few nuts before but lets just say they were part of the wrap :p between us all... my body doesn't need to know otherwise... Razz)

it would be foolish of me to say that i had only like 10 bites cause it just doesn't feel like that...

Anybody have any tips on how i can stop this from happening again?

Also I have tried the 2 snickers bars a day and let me tell you i personally CAN NOT DO IT No

I find it much more satisfying to have 5 bites of lunch or preferably a wrap than to have snickers... even though having 5 bites of lunch will always be more than the snickers in weight... unless you have like 2 bites hehe even then its still probably slightly more... but still having 5 bites of a meal is going to ultraly (like my new word Razz ULTRA-LY ) change your stretch receptors in your stomach so you can't have as much food as you used to anyway...

I have about 2 or 3lbs to go before reaching my first VERY MINI goal... and since weigh day is Monday hope i can shape up over the next few days and be strict and lose it...

Saturday may be hard tho cause i have a party i have to go to... Sad any ideas how to minimise/ limit food (i will probably have dinner at the party/ function (even though its not a sit down thing there will be food... its werid) anyway so maybe i will allow myself the 5 bites then... that way i won't blow myself out of the water... but any other ideas are also welcome Smile

I feel like i've written a book, sorry if it got boring or doesn't make ANY sense... Very Happy my mind does tend to drag and droan on so its not entirely my fault..!

I'm still surprised i have lost some weight considering i have had more bad days than good... i just have to kick myself up the butt to be strong and stop cheating/ giving up so easily Evil or Very Mad

OKAY... now that I feel that i am boring you *the reader bounce * I must be off to finish doing my assignments... I HAVE EXAM BLOCK IN LIKE 4 WEEKS WITH LIKE 3 MAJOR ASSESMENTS DUE VERY SOON!!! - Talk about stress eating Wink lol

I won't be lessening my time on here tho... Don't worry i'll still be here annoying you all with my no point posting, cheering and other tid bits... just cause i feel at home here affraid tongue

Umm ye thats about all i really want to say (not that i couldn't go on more so... but I feel that i may have already been judged harshly by you *the reader Suspect * at the various spelling and grammatical errors I have made... Very Happy )

Good Luck Everyone and Keep GOING!

I know the wrap thing. Use the low calorie, reduced fat tortilla (I believe 20cals). You can only stuff that so much so have that as a bite bite meal. Also I recommened maybe taking a fiber supplement before each meal so you feel a lot fuller, so when you eat you will have that full feeling but with little amount. I have been using it, and its helping me. Of course its only been two days but it is helping. Hope that helps for some tips. just keep thinking about that mini goal, I am desperately waiting to hit mine (a week and a half and I still have not lost 5lbs so stay positive that you are so close).

Well let's start with today (yesterday was ok- don't ask me to rememebr any earlier lol)

today has been OK so far I'm a little uneer my limit (15 bites a day) I think (kinda lost track hehe) but it's only 4:20pm! I think tonight will be a challenge...

phil dont dispair!

Post  teaismyhappyplace on Fri May 21, 2010 3:37 pm

dude I totally understand the disappointment (read my blog the other day--- felt EXACTLY like you). Honestly this diet demands so much discipline that when it doesnt go according to plan we feel so bad about ourselves!! but we shouldnt!! Look at how far you have come, look at the weight that uve lost, and the progress that u've made towards portion control. More than that, you have learned to fight social pressure to eat when ur not supposed to (even if its only 80% of the time- its 80% more than we had before!) you are able to do this phil. just consider it a day where u had ur fun, and then get back to work. its okay, the weight will go away, just might take a WEE bit longer than originally planned, BUT before starting the diet, u were not losing any weight at all. SO YOU ARE IN FACT WINNING.

stay strong tiger, u can totally do this.

hey phil,

how was going back to the 5BD? Did you make it? I also made some really baaaad mistakes the last days (think: whole tub b&j icecream and that was basically just the appetizer Embarassed ) and also felt like it was ridiculous to say "ok... but NOW i am going to make it. Properly this time!!" (cause I probably said it 39483times before) ... but it is not. We can do this. and tea is right - as long as more steps are in the right direction and as long as we don't give up, we will make it.(Even though I don't plan to go just one single step back..everrrr again!!!Waah.)
Good luck to you!

i noticed that as well!! its so weird its like we're all on the same schedule haha we should all stay as strong as possible, and get back on it. dont get discouraged and just stick with it. Obviously this diet is not going to be 100% all the time, so we have to learn to not only stay strict while on the diet, but also strict when we kinnnda side step and get right back on course!!

we can do thiS!! (im reminded of finding nemo, where he's telling his dad he can help bring the net down to the sea floor and free all the trout)
- yes, total nerd.

I'VE MISSED U ALL!!!!!

I've been away for a fair bit due to finals! It's so crazy I had to travel to another state to go to a different campus and blekkkhh!

I'm back now so I'm putting the fact the I've not been in the diet for the past two weeks behind me... And although I've probably gained the weight I had originaly lost back (too scared to check the scales) Im not going to worry too much about it and just think of this as a fresh start

I hope no one is toooo mad at me for being away for a while Wink

I'v actually felt guilty not reading the forums hehe I have sooo much catching up to do...

I have one more exam next week then I'm on break but I'm going to restart the diet tomorrow!

Hope u guys will keep supporting me Smile hehe

SUPER MAD AT U PHIL!! jk jk
welcome back stranger! dont worry about the weight. seriously- just forget it and stick to the diet for a couple days after ur exams are thru. Then get on the scale and assess the damage. Cuz u have to weigh the equals- before when u were weighing ur body had lost water, and didnt have much food mass in it, and was in a different state. Now, uve eaten food, and u have been for a few days and ur condition is a little different. So take a few days, come back to the same point that u were in and then weigh- thats the only way to be fair to urself!
