It's time for another NSV thread. Remember success is not all about what the scales say so share your non scale victories here! Do you fit into a smaller size? Did you start (or increase) your exercise, did you resist the urge to binge? What have you accomplished lately? Mine are 1. Fit back into old jeans. 2. Got back on the threadmill after a two week break. 3. Caught boyfriend checking out my sexy legs.
Hello guys, I am extremely frustrated because I will do very well for a week or two, or maybe even three, and then I will go off the rails and cheat. I will have chocolate and milkshakes, ice cream and chips that slide down easily. I'm so annoyed with myself at the moment as this seems to be a cycle I keep repeating. My band originally was only at 3 cc's, then I just had it filled and put up to 5 cc's. Sometimes it was tight and I felt satisfied, but I noticed that I was getting hungrier and hungrier as each week passed after my fill. I have an appointment this Thursday and I am going to get it filled another 1.5 cc's, so that will put me up to 6.5 cc's. I am hoping that will do the trick where I will not feel as hungry after I eat. I am just really concerned that it is emotional or something else as to why I binge after being successful for 2 or 3 weeks. I do not understand it because I really want to get the weight off. I don't want to be the type of person that just says it but doesn't do what is required. I'm really struggling here. I find that I really struggle with consistency. What do you do if you're not a very consistent and disciplined person to begin with? How do I grow in this area? Has anyone else struggled with derailing their own efforts and how do I stop this? Is there some careful planning that I can do to overcome this? For example, if I eat too healthy then I go crazy... I crave sweets and my body wants something it shouldn't have. How can I maintain a balance? Are there foods I should avoid to keep cravings at bay? Do I eat whatever I want at meals in just smaller portions or should I eat healthier meals (and eat something separate from what my husband is eating)? How do you manage cravings to not slip and overeat? I'm just really feeling discouraged because I don't want to fail. I do not want to give up and I don't want to consider having another type of surgery. I need to learn how to have success with the band. Any tips at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. Renee
