Why didn't anyone think of this before?! I'm totally in Christine's camp. ( boy is THAT gonna look funny. A group, huddled at the end of the diving board!)

So,trying to move forward and stay positive I am denouncing my crown (Queen of Self Sabotage) because after reading a few quotes from "The Secret" what you put out there is what you get back. I do not think that label is overly positive! I do love sugar but no dates, no weight loss this week, pants are too tight, I grunt when I tie up my sneakers, are reasons to throw up my hands and go shopping for sugar

The minute I hit my WW goal (not my personal goal), literally THAT NIGHT, I started inhaling more food than I had in months. It was absolutely insane. I bought a bag of oreos, and let's just say they are no longer with us. ABSOLUTELY a HORRIBLE and STUPID idea. Instead of being proud of this accomplishment and continuing to be successful, I took a cliff-dive into the hard rocky floor of self-sabotage.
The day after making goal I knew I was going away for a conference where the food was provided and I wouldn't be able to exercise for days (my way...which is another issue I suppose...not trying something different and being flexible to changes). I could have said "I can beat this...look at the 50+ pounds I just lost". But instead I gave up before it even began and gained weight instead. I couldn't embrace my success for even ONE HOUR. That's how bad this is for me. I have no clue how I am going to do anything in my life without self-sabotaging myself. And, like Christine, this pervades all aspects of my life like a disease.
That being said, I found my way back to eating right and exercising and tracking points last Tuesday...yet again. So far, doing very well in the days since. I will keep trying. I don't want to fail. I need to find a new me so badly it hurts.

I just wrote this on Heather's page...but my attempt to not self-sabotage this week has been to present my challenges on my blog before they happen, and then report after. It's working to get me through this week so far. Can't do it forever (would probably annoy everyone if I did). But, for now, while I still have 11 days until my WW lifetime weigh-in, I'm going to keep doing this.
It helps to really focus on anticipating where I might let myself slide. And I just LOVE to slide.
Not really of course, but my history is pretty slippery.

So, fellow sabouteurs...What are we doing Sunday?
I am making a "stealth lite dip" to see if anyone has a fit. ( lite sour cream and 1/2 the packet of ranch) Sammiches with Healthy Choice lunchmeat (Aldi's equivalent)

Here's my thought for tomorrow... chew minty gum or brush your teeth when the brakes need to come on. Keep a pack of gum in close reach. Gum has saved me a few times recently and my WW leader always pushes brushing your teeth after eating (but, if you are at someone else's house this might be tricky.)
As for food...I highly recommend Hungry Girl's cocktail weenies...Hebrew National 97% FF hot dogs cut into 4 pieces and wrapped with pieces from one reduced fat Pilsbury Crescent roll. Love those!

Well...I brought in my veggie tray from last night and we bashed it, here at work. All is well, until the 1-800 Board-Up ( fire recovery assistance) guy walks in with oatmeal raisin cookies. Blah! I had a few too many and i'm trying to recover with a piece of WW String cheese. I don't want to feel defeated!! More...knocked off course. P.S. Water is VITAL. I, unfortunately, forgot my stash and have been drinking Diet Dr Pepper. I'm starting to believe that there IS a connection with diet pop and sweets craving! I've been pushing to get a water cooler out here. The well water is VILE!

I gave up for a few days, but I'm back and ready to work hard.
