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.
