I know how to lose weight, I just am not doing what I know I should do.
Since I asked for accountability partners for exercise a few weeks ago I am back in the habit of exercising 5 times (or more) each week. (Thank you accountability partners!)
Perhaps instead of thinking I need to do a major overhaul on my eating plan, I should attempt to change one more bad habit. Currently, eating chips and chocolate most days of the week is one of my biggest stumbling blocks. (I'm also eating second and third helpings and more than 3 generous meals a day.) Taking it all on at once is something that I could do - but I would likely only do it for a couple days before deprivation set in. If I were to change one thing that would make the biggest impact on my health and weight it would be to have chips and chocolate (if I'm going to have them at all) on only one predesignated day of the week.
So this is my plan: Get back into the habit of eating the "junk" infrequently (once a week or less). I will work on this until it becomes a habit once again (I was doing something similar when I lost the 125 pounds last year) then I will re-integrate other healthy habits into my program one at a time until I am eating, exercising and living out a healthy, sustainable lifestyle.
Feel free to ask me how I am doing with this to hold me accountable!
Once again, thanks for reading and supporting me as I work out my plan toward permanent lifestyle change.
