After six months of eating great and no sugar cravings (except for one day when I ate Cracker Jacks but didn't enjoy them), I've made non-conscious food decisions that just don't make sense. The other day, I brought home a bag of pizza rolls and when I looked at them I thought "I don't even like them, why did I buy them?" (I'll take them back.) I've noticed that even though I've been keeping track of food intake, I'm starting to add little things without taking the time to put them on the chart. I can see how this can be a slippery slope to over-eating and I just do not want to let that happen. And today I saw a special on Nutrisystem on QVC when I was channel surfing while on the exercise bike. Now, I was on it for the first three months when I started this new, healthier lifestyle, and it was a great boost to my weight loss. However, today I thought that I would re-enroll because I'm getting lazy. I don't want to think about my food choices anymore and want the easier way out - and faster loss - which I'm not getting now. Then I realized that I don't want to eat pre-packaged stuff again. That I just have to keep on keeping on and be a good girl on my own willpower and good decisions. Whew, I'd better keep a handle on all this.
