I'm still doing well

I have found that taking it slow is the answer. I pay attention to what I am eating now. If I want a cookie, I eat a cookie. I don't eat 10 cookies. Allowing myself to eat healthy and eat all foods has really helped. I have been able to keep my blood sugars stable and my A1C at 6.1. I don't take any diabetes medication, just diet and exercise.

I know this a long road. I have lost and gained back 1000+ pounds in my life. The weight didn't come back all at once, it came back in ...
I have found that taking it slow is the answer. I pay attention to what I am eating now. If I want a cookie, I eat a cookie. I don't eat 10 cookies.

I know this a long road. I have lost and gained back 1000+ pounds in my life. The weight didn't come back all at once, it came back in small increments. There is no reason the weight can't come off in small increments as well.

I used to "diet" off 20 pounds then my body would say Whoa. Then I wouldn't loose any more, get discouraged and gain it back plus more. The last few times I have lost that 20 pounds though I didn't gain it back. Granted the first 20 was 6 years ago and the next 20 was 4 years ago. But I didn't gain it back. Why? I had relearned a better way to eat. So that's what I am working on now. A better way to eat.

Less food, eating slower and exercising. My friends have remarked on the fact that I never eat a whole meal out, I take it home. That is the conscious eating that I am working on. It really helps. That and asking myself why I am eating something. Likely as not I am bored or stressed. Now I go do something.

This is a pep talk to myself. Thanks.
