Weigh In- May 05,2009

I am up 4.4 pounds. Didn't have such a great week. I didn't do any exercise at all, and ate pretty much whatever I wanted.

And I have been so thirsty., it's not even funny. For example, even though i weighed in today, I drank 2 12 ounce cans of diet soda, and 4 16 ounce glasses of diet soda. The only reason I stopped drinking was that I was too full for anything else. But-to be perfectly honest, I was still thirsty.

Someone told me that if I drank water I wouldn't be as thirsty, but I am not sure that I believe that. Maybe I will try more water this week. See if that helps.

At least I don't have to worry about the doctor getting mad at me for drinking too much water. I don't have to see her for a while. I haven't even scheduled a new appointment with her, yet.

So this week, I need to get back on track. I need to eat healthy, and stay out of the sweet stuff. Spearmint leaves are very bad. Not so bad, I guess, if you only have one, or two. But when you have a whole bag in one sitting, not so good. Probably doesn't do much good for my sugar, either.

I could use some words of encouragement. Anyone else ever have a problem with being too thirsty? What did you do to fix it?

YoYo Dieting- April 28, 2009

I am down 1.8 pounds today. To 303 pounds total. This week I am down. Last time I got weighed in I was up. I think I am starting to notice a trend here. So far it seems that I cannot find a happy medium. One week I am up, the next week I am down. Is this what they call Yo yo dieting? This seems to be happening almost every single week.

What's worse, is I find that I have a sabotager in my household. An evil person, determined to make my losing weight fail. And who is this nefarious person? Me! Just last night I went and ate a whole sleeve of Ritz Honey Butter crackers slathered in peanut butter. I don't need Ritz crackers slathered in peanut butter., and even if I did need some, I certainly didn't need a whole sleeve of them.

For the love of everything that is good and decent in this world, I WASN'T EVEN HUNGRY! I guess I just ate out of habit. Makes me wonder, though. If I hadn't screwed myself up so totally, would I have been under that magic number of 300? My gut tells me that I might just have made it.

How do you deal with a sabotager? Especially if you are that said same person? I know I want to lose weight, so why am I doing this to myself?
