I spend a lot of time thinking about what I am going to eat next. I eat too fast, I eat when I am hungry and when I am craving. Why can't cravings be for healthy, low fat, low calorie items?!! When I eat breakfast, I enjoy it and savor it. But as soon as I am finished, I start thinking about what I can have for lunch and then watch the clock tick away the minutes until I can indulge my taste buds and stomach once again.
It isn't as if, I sit around doing nothing but thinking about food. I am a busy woman and spend a lot of time studying, running errands and living my life. Why is food so important to me? Why do I spend so much time, no - devote so much time and attention to food?!!! I need help to learn how to hate food. Perhaps, if I make it my enemy I can win this battle because I am really tired of the constant fighting with my sweet tooth and cravings!!

So, I've been celebrating finishing school for about a week now. I have been to the movies, eaten out multiple times and taken naps! I am so excited for having time to have fun and being able to relax that it is hard to make guidelines/schedules and even harder to keep them. Even though I haven't gone overboard on eating and not exercising, I am not doing myself any favors with this lack-a-daisy attitude.
I am pretty healthy - I walked six miles today, helped a couple of classmates study, rode my motorcycle. I am wearing size 16 jeans and shorts and feeling good about how I look. So, I'll make up a schedule and try to make some menu plans. Oh, and I need a job -so if anyone has any tips, I am listening.
This is a good time in my life and I intend to enjoy it without making myself miserable!!

I suppose I could choose to see this as me 'failing yet again', but I am choosing to say that I am making a conscious decision to move in a healthier direction. It is a lot like the Christian walk. We all have "besetting" sins- the ones that keep tripping us up all the time, I have to get up and recognize the bad decision for what it is- a mistake- confess it as such and turn in a new direction- away from the sin.
So, here I am AGAIN, to get back on track with my weight loss. I think it is so hard because it really is a lifestyle change and not just a set of new habits that are short term.
I fell off the wagon again, but because I am willing to admit it and turn in a new direction of bringing my appetite and exercise routine under my conscious control - I am assured success! Today, I am successful. I recognized my bad decisions regarding eating and fitness and I am changing my route and my routine. I am going to accomplish this- even if it takes me ten years.
My starting weight as of Saturday night is 179. My goal is a healthy and reasonable 160. Just watch me go!!
Habitual loser by sheer determination
