I keep trying to change my world all at once, doing everything I'm supposed to do and it doesn't work. A couple times I've tried changing one thing, but as soon as I stumble, it's written off as a fail and I give up.
I'm going to try the small, less overwhelming approach again with some additional strategies. Maybe even some cognitive behavioral kung full thrown in.
Last Wednesday I decided to stop buying the sugary snacks and desserts. The only exceptions are special occasions with family or friends. My hope is to head off the solitary binges and not feel overwhelmingly deprived at holiday dinners.
Wednesday through Saturday I did very well, even with temptation all around. Sunday was a bad day. I was discouraged about life in general. Not only did I not achieve my goal, I downright binged. Today I'll be picking myself back up. It's not even a restart. It's recognizing that everyone has bad days, but it doesn't have to defeat me altogether.
After I feel steady with this goal I'll add another baby step goal. For today I'm focused on not letting yesterday defeat me.
