BeSkiBiMo ~ Two Week Check-In

Good morning and welcome to our official two-week check-in on BeSkiBiMo.  Let me just say up front that I did not lose a single pound during the last week.  I made (mostly) good food choices, but it was such a stressful week that I didn’t sleep well and was too exhausted and in too much pain to even think about exercising.  I don’t know if it was the lack of exercise of the increased “stress hormones” that got me, but I’m changing both this week!  And the tip of the day is: Don’t watch “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives”.  Don’t watch it, don’t let your spouse watch it in bed while you fall asleep.  I woke up this morning STARVING and wanting all sort of odd foods.  Thankfully, I have none of them in my house and I don’t want any of them bad enough to go out in the cold to get them.  Maybe there is an upside to this crappy weather.  How did you guys do this week and what are your plans for handling the upcoming week?

  1. Do not be discouraged that is very normal. The most important thing is you are trying to make the right food choices. This is not a fad diet, these are eating habit changes.

  2. Ang,
    This is totally typical of anyone who starts a new weight loss regimen. The first week is all water weight. Your body is adjusting to the new foods which it has to do first to make sure it can sustain itself. Don’t starve yourself, the body will hold on to weight because it doesn’t think it will get nutrients. Continue to eat just as you have and increase your exercise output to help compensate. As for that stress….well honey, that’s what the exercise is for……gets rid of it. Focus your mind on yourself and your goals (I know you have a hard time doing that, trust me) Let the stress go and put that energy into yourself, no one else and guess what, there will be a better balance in your life and you will be able to handle those stresses better in the long run. I learned a long time ago, I’m not gonna change the work environment, even when I managed the place, so I just let it go, took care of what I could and then took care of me!! Focus on yourself first! The result of reaching your goals far outweighs serving the needs of others to reach their goals! You’ll get there!
