If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!

I am 28 years old, I am married to a wonderful guy, and I am hoping to have a very bright future!

In 2006-2007 I had great success in building healthy habits using a food journal and exercise tracker. I lost about 25 pounds over several months and felt great. Over the past few years, the habits have fluctuated around big life events. Now I'm trying to get back to where I was!

I started the Couch to 5K plan in July and was so proud and excited to be close to my 5K goal. Unfortunately, I seem to have injured my left shin and am stalled out on that front for now. I hope to continue exercising in other ways until I can get back to jogging.

CRAVING RESISTANCE
Cravings are usually more emotional and physiologically intense than hunger. The moment I decide I will ABSOLUTELY NOT EAT cravings will diminish.
When I experience a craving my attention gets fixated on food. It is important to remember that the experience of eating goes far beyond the actual time that food is in my mouth - It includes everything that happens afterward: feeling weak, guilty and out of control and gaining weight. In the past when I tried to diet, I gave into cravings, and I felt upset with myself.
----------------------------------------
-
I know I don't care at this moment, but pretty soon I'm going to feel really bad that I ate this. When I get on the scale, I'm going to care very much. If I don't learn to resist eating food I'm not suppose to have, I'll never be able to keep off the weight I lose.
---------------------
I have to become an expert at resisting all food that I haven't planned to eat. If I want to lose weight and keep it off, I just can't eat what I want unless it is on my plan.
-----------------
I am choosing to say NO CHOICE.
If I want to lose weight, I have to do what I need to do, not what I feel like doing.
---------------------
Successful dieters and maintainers stay successful because they don't eat whatever they want, whenever they want it. They stick to their plans.
---------------
It is true that I don't care at this moment. But if I eat this unplanned food, I'm going to care quite a lot in a few minutes. I know I'll feel really bad if I give in now, but I'll feel really terrific in a few minutes if I resist. I need to do something else!

Are you slackin' off? Are you missing your goals you set for 2010? Does it make you mad??? It makes me mad...mad as hey-ll!!!

Let's NOT give up Pensacola Sparkers! Let's get mad and give it our all! Let's not let our bad choices rule us! Food does not control us. No it does not! We CAN make good choices. We CAN be healthy!

Come on...get MAD with me and let's do something about it!

My goal is to lose 4 pounds this month. State your goal and GET MAD! MAKE IT HAPPEN!
