The most important thing for me has been being truly honest with myself about what I eat during the day and why. I am a big emotional eater and I also eat a lot when I am bored. Knowing this has really helped me to curb it a little. I've started a food journal where I right down everything I eat good or bad. The knitting instead of eating has so far ended my boredom eating. Now I just need to work on the overeating when I am stressed.

i definately agree with the diet diary. i keep mine in my purse and write down EVERYTHING that i eat, good or bad. and then i write down what my exercise was that day, and then i evaluate how i'm doing and what i need to do better. it also really helps me see actually how much i ate when i write it down.

It was my birthday. I finished a Red Vintage Velvet scarf from Scarf Style. I ate 1.5 ounces of red velvet cake. Oh my gosh, I think I'm going to be sick. Waaaaaay too much sugar. Waaaaay too sweet. I haven't had anything like this in at least 7 weeks. I chose to splurge on my b day.

Ugh, as good as it tastes, it isn't worth the shock to my stomach and blood sugar.

There's another 1.5 ounces in the fridge. It can stay there.

Lilyarn, I saw the Vintage Velvet in your blog. It looks AMAZING! You've inspired me to make it my next scarf project!

I'm still here and still on track. I get to weigh myself in 2 weeks and will see how much I've lost then. I can tell my pants fit better, though. Yay!

SO, if I could, can I ask a question here? What is the SINGLE most important thing in your wieght/fit program? If you had to pick, what one thing has been the most help?
For me, it's no bread. Bread in all its forms--bread, crackers, pretzels, pizza crust, cereal, cookies, etc. I'm not low-carbing. I still eat potatoes, oatmal, bananas, yogurt and plenty of other things that have carbs in them. But I cannot control my consumption of bread. I just eat too much of it. Honestly, I've found that on the "no bread, no sweets" diet that I don't really have to worry about what I'm doing or what I'm eating. As long as I'm not eating bread or candy that everything else pretty much takes care of itself.

The pic doesn't do it justice. It really comes out wonderful. Be prepared to spend some $$$ on the yarn though. It is pricey to me at least. Worth it for the FO though.

Thanks!!

and keep up the no bread...I can totally feel you on that. Grains in general get me. I can live on them whole grain or not. I have to really watch myself.

Good luck!!

0lbs lost this week I'm a little bit disappointed but there's also 0lbs gained so that's something to be thankful for. I must try harder next week.

I just ran out of yarn....
On the last row of the skirt I am knitting.
So, I have to go to the yarn store. Fortunately it is only cascade fixation, so it shouldn't be a problem.

I've had a tough week getting into the diet thing, but I am working on it. I am hopeful that I will be back in the swing by Monday. Gotta kick the Starbucks habit!

This week:

Weight Lost: -1.1#
NSV: I ate alot of good foods, upped the water, and started drinking green tea in place of nibbling.
Knitting Progress: Frogged several rows of knitting in my Baby Blanket due to yapping at knitting group instead of paying attention to my knitting. Almost finished with the toddler shrug I am making.
