All my life, up until the past few years when the hormonal tidal wave occurred, I've been able to eat anything at any time of day or night in any quantity. Yup, not even one pound gained as a result.
So, one gets used to that type of metabolism. But one day I awoke with extra pounds on my bones for the first time ever and it felt (most of it is off with 20 to go) beyond awful.
I've been at a plateau for about a year now and my body doesn't want to give up more weight. So my brain has started to think that means that I can eat the same way I always have with no price to pay.
Wrong! Thanks to the reinforcement from this SP site, I have learned and stuck to new ways to deal with healthy patterns, thoughts, and actions. If it weren't for SP, I would probably revert into my old way of thinking. With time, I'll do this on my own. But for now, I'm still working on lifetime patterns that just do not hold true any longer.
