Not Thankful for Thanksgiving

Sunday, November 29, 2009


Me+Thanksgiving = No self control. Can you say, "Homemade Apple Pie, Pumpkin Pie, Mac & Cheese, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Stuffing, Green Bean Casserole, Sparkling Water" 5 times fast?? LOL! I am horrible! I have a HUGE issue with wasting food. I would rather eat the extra leftovers than to throw them away. HOW DO I FIX THAT!?? I tried to give them to my skinny minnie hubby - but I just ate HIS leftovers! Geez. I'm pitiful. I can hear myself in the back of my head saying, "It is just Thanksgiving, I will straighten up my act on Dec 1". But doesn't that just mean that I'm procrastinating??

I've lost 7lbs [142 to 135] (in the last 4 months), and haven't gained any over the holiday - so that has been my justification. I have a hard time earning the 1200 cal goal per day. I always go under. I usually get around 900 cals per day. I have always been like this - so why am I the weight that I am?? I just wish a magical physical trainer would walk my way and set me up with a personalized meal plan (that is so diverse I can't see straight) and a workout plan that makes me lose weight w/o killing myself or making me get 'sick and tired' of it. WHERE ARE YOU MAGICAL PHYSICAL TRAINER?? ((THAT IS FREE)) lol

Good thing is: I am hitting the gym tonight. Hopefully I will feel so good about it afterwards, that I can't help but do it again tomorrow! I am 20 years old for Pete's sake! I need to look frickin HAWT!! ((Let me clarify - I NEED TO LOOK FRICKIN HAWT-ER)) lol :)

    Hey girl, I just read that you should be getting *at least* 100 calories for every 10 pounds of your ideal weight. So if your ideal weight is 130, you should be eating no less than 1300 calories! Our bodies release all types of chemicals and stuff depending on our food intake, I wish I knew the magic formula myself, but I do think that 900 calories isn't enough :)

    Hi Chelsea,
    I think perhaps you are not eating enough. You mentioned 900 calories a day....not enough. Your body will hold on to that and you need the fuel to make your engine run properly. I know that is a hard concept for some to get a handle on, but I made the mistake when I was young of doing the same thing. 1000-1500 at the minimum and exercise every day is my "recipe". Good luck, darlin'. You look great! And hey.....you've LOST not gained!!! Keep up the good work. Losing it slowly is a good thing. XXXOOO MaryAnn emoticon
