starting over...

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

Here I am starting this again. I realized today that I am following in the footsteps of my mother. My entire childhood was spent watching my mom "diet" give up and then try another "diet" to give up... She finally found something that worked for her and lost all of the weight plus some but it was not until she was in her 60's. I have now been off and on dieting for the last 9 years and I am DONE.
I am determined to not allow my daughters to grow up feeling that they need to be on the dieting rollercoaster!
I have discovered that I have it in me to do this the right way. I am not going to diet I am going to get healthy. I am going to have more energy, a brighter outlook on life, a healthier view of food and exercise, and in the process I am sure I will also lose some weight.
I am done giving up! emoticon

    Ugh. My mom is still "dieting" at 88! Sheesh!

To maintain your permanent change you need to know what works and why it works. One book I'm always confident in recommending is Gary Taubes' "Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It".

The things that make us fat ALWAYS make us fat, so figure out how to make small, doable changes that you can maintain for the rest of your life. One at a time!

    You can do it!

One tiny step at a time. Keep your head in the game. Be kind to yourself. Forgive yourself when you make mistakes. Continue to remind yourself why you are here!
