Today was a good day food wise. Some issues I need to focus on are making sure when I eat that I am sitting at the table, and only eating. No reading, no watching TV, no computer. Next issue is to concentrate on keeping my snacks limited to healthy choices. If I want a cookie make sure it's only once a day. Next issue is to limit my eating after 8pm to popcorn only. Just because I have calories left doesn't mean I have to use them up. No more eating past 8:30pm Lastly, I really must exercise at least 20 minutes per day. This sound like a lot of things to work on, but if I choose 1 or 2 to focus on this week I know I can stick to it. This week I will focus on: Healthy snacks & not eating after 8:30pm.

I am reading a book called The Beck Diet Solution train your brain to think like a thin person. The book asks me to choose 2 diet plans. 2 because most people get bored with the first and you should have a back up plan. I chose SparkPeople. It's free and pretty easy to track my food and exercise. My back up plan is WebMD.
I'm on day 4. I don't start the actual "diet" until day 15. The premise of the book is to build up daily thoughts and actions to help me throughout the actual dieting. I have daily advantages for losing weight index cards I need to read, daily affirmation cards, and exercises I need to practice. Once I condition myself 2 weeks before beginning my diet the thought is that I will be able to face the challenges of the diet by applying these daily actions & readings etc.
I'm using this journal and a way to track what I accomplish or what I didn't accomplish. My feelings and thoughts will also assist my journey to become a healthier person. I know I can accomplish this loosing weight and exercising thing.
