It's been 1 week now I have started in earnest.
It's like coming off the motorway and suddenly realizing how fast you were going.
I was eating mindlessly day in and day out - and it seems like time flies with it when you do that. Now that I'm watching my eating habits again, it does feel like each day has slowed down, waiting for my next meal to come.
Sometimes i just feel the need to eat for no reason - No idea why. But when I'm done, it's the worst feeling ever.
Keeping within the goal calories is great - that's usually a brilliant day, but if the next day is a slip up, and then the next, then the next, then the next it feels like I'm going backwards.
I think being off the healthy eating has been letting old habits creep back...so I need to eradicate those again.
It's now my 2nd year at Sparkpeople - and I can honestly say, it has taken some of the stress and worry out of my weight management.
The stress of trying a new diet, wondering if it will work, finding new willpower and trying to come back after a relapse, is now gone.
I know what I'm doing, I'm sure of it, it works, just need to get down to it now.
So motivation and commitment are the only things I need.
Next time I reach for an unneeded snack I will ask myself... "What's eating me?"
