Good morning and Happy Super Bowl Sunday!! I'm excited for my Pats!! Although I can't wait for the game sadly at the end of the day its also a let down as its the END of the NFL season ;( Oh well, I have enough to keep me busy for the foreseeable future with the move. I was only sporadically motivated/productive yesterday, it was strange. I didn't sleep well thinking of all the things I want to do today, so it's back on for real! Until the game starts anyway.

QOTD - How do you get back on track after going off the rails? How about when its really bad or for days, even weeks? How do you rein it in, what do you do and what do you tell yourself? I'm having a hard time with this, I know I can do it, but I'm finding excuses and my clothes are all tight and uncomfortable which used to work, but now I'm just wearing leggings. I need to rise above my extreme emotional eating, so any advice would be appreciated.

Accountability - not good

2 years, 2 mo - 174.3

Here's the plan

b- coffee x 3, eggs and cheese scramble

l-cheese protein pancake

s veggies and dip

d-jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and cheddar, pizza cups pepperoni with sauce, cheese and olives

es L&F greek half frozen

Have a great day everyone!

I won't be watching the SuperBowl and until yesterday didn't even know who was playing--so yes I am an odd duck! I didn't get a chance to post yesterday as we worked til noon,packed up the camper to come home and arrived to find the frig/freezer recently deceased. After cleaning out the spoiled food and an expensive trip to Lowe's for a replacement,I came home and ate Oreo Thins til I was sick and then went to bed. So I am not one to say much about controlled eating. I am right back on track today though and Lily and I did our 4 miles this am. We'll do another 1.2 before dinner. QOTD I get myself back on track by remembering where I came from. My before picture lives on my frig as a daily--and sometimes hourly--reminder of the past. When I look at the picture of that lonely,sad miserable version of myself I just know I don't want to go back there and make the right choice. Heres the food B 1/2 c steel cut oats with protein and almond butter L 2 slices turkey 1 slice cheese D 4 oz burger patty S meat stick or string cheese. Have a great day everyone!

Sorry to hear about your fridge, especially since it happened while you were away, and the oreos too. The emotional stress gets me too. I don't have one single before photo of me anywhere in view. Thank you, Karen for this reminder! I will put them up where I am most mindful - fridge, pantry, bathroom mirror, my office maybe even as the wallpaper on my phone!

Good morning! I don't really care about the Super Bowl, but I will enjoy watching the commercials lol. We were invited to a Super Bowl party with some of DH's friends, but I'll likely stay home and let him go hang with the guys. I've just come from the gym, but the weather is somewhat warm-ish today so I might actually go for a walk outside later. Other than that, I have laundry, cleaning the house, and binging The show Lucifer on Netflix :)

qotd: cold turkey, honestly. If I feel like I've gone off track, I clean out the cupboards, toss anything carby and snacky, stock up on yummy herbal teas (I use them to fight sweet cravings) and just white knuckle for a few days while drinking ridiculous amounts of tea.

Breakfast: Sunday eggs and bacon! Then coffee probably all morning

lunch: eating breakfast late enough that lunch might just be a yogurt or tuna packet

dinner: might just pull out something leftover in the freezer, since DH is going out. Likely ham and bean soup

Cold turkey really is the best way and I usually allow myself a transition day of extra on plan foods. Lately I am a rollercoaster of emotions and I can get there but I can't seem to stay there, ugh.

Good morning everyone. I won't be watching the Super Bowl, we don't have cable and I am not a sports fan.

They are calling for snow and ice this week. I hope they are wrong. I don't like stressing about my kids commuting and my daffodils are starting to come up. I am ready for spring and sunshine!!

QOTD- I agree with cold turkey. Surround yourself with good food. Lots of water and hot tea.I was feeling tempted yesterday while grocery shopping with potato chips. They are on sale everywhere. I thought in my head that I would just buy them because the family might want them. Truth is, no one needs chips! I walked away. My Papa used to always say, If you sit in the Barbershop, you're going to get a haircut. There is a lot of truth in that.

This journey is hard, harder than I ever thought it would be. I thought I would have WLS and never have to diet or deal with food temptations again. The fact is, I have to deal with it every day and it sucks. What would suck more is never having this surgery and being MO and still struggling. So, each day I will wake up, nourish my body with good protein forward food and be grateful for good health. We are all worth it!!

Food for today-

protein pancakes with WF syrup

4 oz of crab

left over roast with ketchup

ham with mustard and light swiss roll up

Lots of water, hot tea and vitamins always.

Be kind to yourself today.

I like that - if you sit in a barber shop, you're going to get haircut - so much truth! This journey is hard, so was being SMO and feeling the same way, I totally get that. I should be more grateful for my health that I was able to get where I am and treat health and body with more respect than I am currently. Thanks for the reminder!!

Hey everyone!! I have zero interest in the game. I'm fact someone at worked asked if I wanted to join a pool- I was confused, Alex them if football was still going on LOL. So no plans for anything tonight.

Qotd: I'm not sure how to answer this- I constantly feel like I'm failing this- self-persecution is real. Not having access to the foods that put or keep me in an off the rails pattern is important. I can't tell you how many times I've went to survey the fridge for something bad and didn't find anything. (Thankfully) Weighing myself also keeps me out of denial and staying connected here is important too.
