I'm for real this time!

After these girl scout cookies are gone, that's it! I am not gonna be buying and consuming junk food like that. I will buy some periodically because I know saying I'm not gonna have any more at all is completely unrealistic.

My main problem is controlling my portions. I know this. If anyone looks in my fridge one would think I was a slim to average person. I don't have a cup of yogurt, I have 3. I don't have one grapefruit, I have 2. Rabbit food is my friend and I actually like it. I just eat too much of it then top it off with junk. For instance this morning I had 4 tagalog cookies which is 300 calories! THREE HUNDRED CALORIES in the blink of an eye without even thinking about it! I had no business in the cookie box first thing in the morning anyway! :-(

I am also gonna go back to my broke days when getting fast food was a special occasion type deal. I am going to start off by only allowing it once every other week and hopefully work it to once a month if that. This weekend my friend is going to take us out for helping her move but after that I won't be going out to eat till March. Yeah there only 7 days left in the LOL

I am going to get back to cooking heavy on the weekend so I can bring my lunch to work everyday and stop feeding the vending machine.

According to the weather channel online this weekend should be decent so my brown behind WILL be on that trail! I don't care if it takes me 3 hours to complete the course. If the weather is what it predicted to be I WILL be back on that trail. That will be my cardio then helping my girl move will be my weight lifting. PERFECT!!!!!! The trail shouldn't be too crowded cuz the NYE dieters should be quitting right about now.

I thought about jump starting all this with a fad diet but I changed my mind. I've done it right the first time and I'll do it the right way this time. It's time to do the damn thing. Ain't nobody stopping me but me. Don't nobody control what I put in my mouth or how much but me.

I give anybody reading this post permission to fuss me out if I start slipping bad or you read about me buying a bunch of little debbies, I didn't exercise, or some stuff like that. Also ask me how I am doing from time to time. I basically want folks to stay on my back about it right now. I could go the personal trainer/nutritionist route but who has time or money to keep paying them? I could spend the time meeting them walking the pounds away on the trail for free!

I am for real this time. This mess stops now! I have a row of Thin Mints at home and cookies are on display for my coworkers to eat. I am making a bet with myself that I won't touch them. If I stay in my office and bout my business they will be gone by the end of the day. That's the hope anyway.

I agree only if you do the same for me. We in this together. I did not get cookies this year. I just couldnt do it. DON'T TOUCH THE COOKIES....

Ladynay said...

I think I can do that. And I haven't had one :-).

My favorite jeans told me this morning that I was 2 tagalogs away from putting them in the back of my closet with the rest of the clothes I ummmmm grew out of! LOL I laugh but I am serious! So I know I gotta do something quick.

I LOVE Tagalongs LOL...but I def feel ya it's a mind thing and I have to play tricks on my mind all the time in order not to over do it. I write down what I eat, not everday anymore but just to see what i"m doing and how I'm overdoing it..once I see that I'm eating like a fat girl or think before I eat (am I really hungry) I notice that I won't eat as much or that I'm not hungry at all. Just take your time and do what's best for you...everyone has their own way of losing weight and keeping it took me a whole year to lose 25 pds and I don't mind if it takes me another year LOL (p.s. I love wheat thins too and they come in flavors)

Ladynay said...

Definitely a mind thing! Food journals work soooo well for me but I always get lazy and stop. :-(

Most things that are worth having takes time to get. :-)

Black pepper jack wheat thins are the BOMB! I think that's what they are called. As long as you eat them with something to take the kick down a notch you st8!

Okay no more trips into that back room, you know the dark one with the big, solid, polished wood desk in it if you slip up. No more spankings, under the desk activities, or anything else.

[Whispers in your ear as I pinch you on the butt.] Hope you don't mess up. :o) However, if you do I have a ginormous box of stones to throw at you. LOL!

TTD said...

um.. i like snacks too.. what you do is look @ the back, see how many are in a serving & section them off.. for instance i LOVE cheeze-its.. 27 of them are 160 calories... since im countin calories.. i just eat 27 (yes i have them counted out already! lol) and i get my goodies but in a decent serving..

good luck to you! and i'll be sure to stay on you :-)

BAH HUMBUG!! I'm so sick of this whole losing weight and dieting bull - I don't know what to do. FOOD IS FREAKING GOOD!

If we lived in utopia then most of us wouldn't need the comfort of food, lol

I'm just tired of it, I'm tired of folks mention to me I've gained weight HOT DAMN I think I know that. I'm sick of myself battling with myself about the whole thing.

I'm sick of "today I will do better, I will exercise blah blah blah"

I wish you luck cause I wish somebody luck in this whole thing cause without an Oprah Team waiting on me at home. This shit is gonna take FOREVER!!!

Pass the Tagalongs and some Shortbreads while you at it. Ok Ok, and a Diet Coke!

Ladynay said...

Freaky, GASP!!!!! That's cruel and unusual punishment!!! LOL If you gotta throw dem dere stones don't aim for the face! :-D

TTD, white cheddar cheese-its are bad news!!!! I don't know how you can eat just 27! They have the small bags in our vending machine at work and when the bag is empty I look at the bag funny like it's not supposed to be empty yet! HAHAHAHAHA Thanks for helping be a drill sargent!

Pam Pam Pam. I darn near shed a tear laughing at you! ROFL Let me know when you get the Harpo team so I can come that way and reap residual benefits! LOL

Freaky Deaky said...

I can't make any promises about the face. Well, actually I could but I won't. LOL!

That's not cruel and unusual punishment. You haven't seen cruel and unusual punishment yet and you won't if I have to fuss you out. It's a shame too because I can think of some pretty nice punishments.

Ladynay said...

Double gasp...MEANIE!

I guess the question now is how do I want to be punished if at all? Hmmmmmmm

blkbutterfly said...

my offer still stands that you can send all unwanted/needed Girl Scout cookies (namely Thin Mints) to me! ;-)

all kidding aside, good luck with it all.

Ladynay said...

Thin mints are gone and I am not sharing the ones at the crib! LOL

Thanks BB! :-D

Ladynay said...

How did I skip Jameil? HA! The mint comment still stands:-) I think I recall reading about your fast food consumption b4. Wow! There isn't anyone who has a schedule that can fit mine to have a partner :-(

Lady J said...

You can do it I to am dieting and yes it is hard but once you start to see the results it makes it all worth it. Good luck on your journey!

Ladynay said...
