Gaining and out of control!

Wednesday, May 14, 2014

OUT OF CONTROL! Thats how my days have been going lately. Ive been running alot, but my eating has been far from whole 30. After the 1st week of part2 I quit. I fell off the band wagon and consumed enough sugar to make a kids field trip to a candy store look bad. I realized it was unreasonable to think I could stay on whole 30 forever. But how do I control these darn cravings??? I have gained 6 lbs since whole 30 part1 ended. HELP! This is exactly why I tried doing a part 2. I knew I wasnt ready to go back to the real world. And now I cant seem to get back on track. If I eat another egg for breakfast Ill throw up. If I have to spend another full hour preping for a healthy dinner that both me and my husband wished was pizza, I'll scream. I need help. I dont know what to do but I feel like a snowball, packing the lbs back on. I feel miserable after each meal, physically and emotionally.

How am I supose to enjoy life when I have to live restricted? Either Im restricted by my weight or by my food. Food is important to me, cooking and baking are a passion of mine, but it seems if I so much as look at anything baked I gain more weight.

Sorry for the rant. Things were going so well, but all of a sudden everything got out of control and Im scared I will end up back where I started. I need to find a way to balance my eating. Should I just buckle down and count calories or give whole 30 another try? Any advice would be amazing. Thanks

    If you can, try not to binge, I know how you feel! I was there last year, I just gave up on my diet and ended up gaining all the weight I lost plus an extra 25 lbs. Don't restrict yourself. A real healthy diet that is permanently going to stick is one you can see yourself eating for life. I still let myself have pizza, candy, cake on birthdays and still lose weight. You just have to track it, kind of like a calorie game :D
    You can do a variation of the whole 30 (which is kind of what I do) I eat super healthy and strict throughout the week and then track on the weekends with small cheat allowances. Not a whole pizza but maybe 2 slices. Not a whole box of cookies but maybe 10 or so :)
    The best part is I really don't feel like I'm restricting myself most of the time. If I feel hungry during the week in my strict portion I will allow an extra snack as long as it's healthy and fits my calories. I know it's hard, I've been there but if you stop the downward spiral now you will thank yourself later. Don't be like me and let it get out of control. I don't want to seem like I'm preaching so I apologize if I do.
    Good luck and sorry you're having a hard time, You can do this!

    Count calories. You can try all the fad diets you want, but at the end of the day it is all about what you consume.

    My mantra that helps me on days that are hard and I feel fed up
    If my life depended on it would I do it. It does and I do.
    Stay on track. I would do what works for your body. If it involves a lot of cooking. Plan part of a free day and cook in advance for several days. Have stuff prepared.
    You don't have to eat eggs for breakfast eat a lunch food instead.
    Good Luck! Don't Give up on this! Don't give up on you!

    Honestly, take a break. Take a day and back off of the system. Eat a pizza (or 2). If you don't do it now, you'll end up eating 8 pizzas in a month to make up for what you crave right now. Ignore the scale for a week. After today/tomorrows pizza get back on track. Add seasoning (they have 0 calories) to your egg. Put lettuce on it or take a bite of the egg and then three bites of celery/lettuce/tomatoe what ever you choose. You can't say no to what you want. Eat it in moderation. You got this!
