Keeping motivated, trying tochange

Tuesday, July 15, 2008

Change is hard. the longer you are doing things one way, the harder it is to change. I am only 4 or 5 days into this and i guess I am looking for results, immedieate results. Patience has never been one of my strong points. I was stressed out yesterday and dealing with an emotional issue and i reached for the pretzel nibblers. I counted out 16 and ate them and then had to eat 16 more. I literally felt as though i was trying to numb myself. I know i need to substitute this behavior with something else but when i am in the midst of this feeling it is almost impossible.
All in all, i have been doing ok. I think I am eating too many carbs. I am going to have to watch that. I am going to try to increase my lean protein and decrease my bad carbs, like pretzels for one.

    emoticon Hi, sorry to hear you were stressed out the other day, but I am glad you found SP. I have only been here a few weeks so I am kind of new too.

    I am the same way I want immediant results but I do tell myself that I didn't put all of this weight on overnight and I am not going to be able to take it off that fast either, but as long as I am making progress and trying I am getting there. I am very guilty of eating for the wrong reasons too and it is a hard habit to break. I try to distract myself, even if I have to leave the house for a bit and I am learning there are just some foods I just can't eat one serving of, especially if I am having a bad day. Don't stress, you will reach your goals!
