  1. This book has helped me more than any other diet aide I've tried in my whole life. It gives me real tools to solve my eating issues. Lately my favorite response phrase is "I can get emotional support and comfort from that food, or I can be thin. But I can't have both" Great thread idea ! Woodland
  2. Hi, This is the time of year when unplanned eating can be hard. One thing I have been trying to do more lately is the Beck technique of looking at what I did right. It isn't something I used to notice, but now I try to look over the day and remind myself of what I did well. For me, the feeling is really good when I praise myself. It makes me stronger. When I feel stronger I'm more able to avoid cravings. Good for you for thinking and talking about this issue ! Woodland
  3. Hi, I've been right where you are. Sometimes I have problems staying OP, but it is not very often anymore. I try to learn from it for awhile, then I try to stop thinking about it and just get back to doing this right. It happens, but pick yourself up and get back on track. Building new habits doesn't happen overnight, but it can happen. I appreciate that you came to the boards to admit what happened. Just don't dwell on it too much now. Try to write a small bit down about it, then move on. In a few weeks go back and read what you wrote and try to remember the feelings. I have found that to be helpful in preventing overeating - part of the learning process. Woodland
  4. Nope, I don't. I need to like everything I eat or else I won't enjoy it. Sometimes if something isn't just right, I'm ok, but I'll be looking for an alternative real fast !! Woodland
  5. Hi Kelly, Good for you, coming here and talking about the journey. With focus and thinking about it one day at a time, your success will come. Post often, it helps. Woodland
  6. Sounds fine to me as long as the meal is a healthy one. Woodland
  7. Hi, I probably wouldn't wear them too much. When they'd be on I would want to be controlled and careful about the movements I made, and would be worried otherwise about straining a muscle by doing something my body isn't as used to doing. Woodland
  8. Hi, How are you figuring the activity points? 10 seems high to me as well. I usually figure 3-4 per my gym workouts. This is a good topic for review ! Woodland
  9. I know what you mean about wanting to get out of the office and take a break. What I sometimes do is pack my gorp and fruit, plus a canteen of pre-mixed drink (I like propel lemonade), take this in my lunch bag to a sandwich shop, and get a very basic low fat sandwich. That way I can sit in there, enjoy what I brought and get some time alone for awhile.
  10. Hi, I have a similar problem with the meal in the middle of the day when I'm not at home. It is too easy to eat out when I don't plan ahead. Here are some things I pack: - gorp: I mix up peanuts, cashews (very few) and craisins, then distribute them into serving size containers. These are easy to grab and are filling. - Kelloggs protein bars: Pick your bar of choice, these are filling and give me some protein. - Fruit, prepared in serving containers. I was enjoying blueberries with a packet of Splenda before that season was over. I'll be interested to hear what other people do for this meal. It is my most challenging, for sure! Woodland
  11. Thanks Buddies for all the input !! Woodland
  12. Welcome Jay ! This board is a terrific support. Good for you for taking care of yourself. Woodland
  13. ok, I googled it. Tuesday Sept 15th is the date ! Woodland
  14. I plan to watch this year. Last year the show helped inspire me to start my weight loss journey. I have seen a few commercials about the show starting up. Does anyone know the exact date? Woodland
