I have noticed that on the days I exercise I can control my appetite more then on the days I don't exercise. Also on the weekends it has become literally impossible for me to be healthy. I try and try and try and I don't know why this is. At first I thought it was because I haven't been exercising on the weekends but then again I am normally at home alone with my kiddos while hubby works and I end up snacking due to boredom or being very tired that I end up loafing(the one thing I really dislike about having Fibromalygia)
I finally had broken my 175 plateau after like 3 months of trying and I got down to about 172, but I swear just these last couple of weekends have killed it for me. Today I was at 173.8 but after today...yeah I will be VERY HAPPY if I don't go over 175!!!

My hubby and I are celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary on Saturday (just the 2 of us http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley9.gif) and we are having a big barbeque this Sunday with our friends and family....I am so going to kick it into high gear this week and work my butt off and eat so super clean it is not funny!

So does anyone else notice that if they don't work out their appetites are harder to control?Edited by: OrangeSmoke20

Yup! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif

There are actually studies to back up what you're saying, so good observation. I think I remember reading somewhere (and don't quote me 'cuz I could be wrong...lol) that exercising helps control blood sugar levels.

Hey, congrats on breaking your plateau! AWESOME! http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley20.gif

Hey Dawn,
That was a good observation! And it is the same with me - I think working out makes me more aware all day of my eating and helps me to think that I did not just domy work out for nothing!

That in itself is a good motivator.....

And I agree - congrats on breaking the plateau!! You go, girl! So proud of you!!!http://www.wahm.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif
