Focused and back on track!

Friday, January 08, 2010

I had gone a bit off my diet goals for awhile but with the new year I have adjusted my eating patterns and learned a few lessons also.
Lesson #1-I must track all my food&drink everyday because it sets limits for me.
If I don't track I eat more than I intended.
Lesson #2-I can't eat a "small portion" of anything sweet because I will over indulge! So I won't try anything at all!
Lesson#3-I must measure All my portions because all my life I have been used to serving everyone "Generous Helpings" of food.
Lesson#4-I must keep a jar of water with me at all times...and sip it all the time so that I don't get so hungry between meals.
Lesson #5-I am the only person who controls what goes into my mouth...I can't blame anyone except myself if I overeat...I always have the power to say No!
Lesson#6-I can do this...I know what needs to be done! I've always prided myself on doing a good job on anything I I have to apply that principal to losing weight also. I have to put as much energy into losing weight as it takes!
Whatever it takes that's what I have to do! My weight loss plan can't be just when I feel has to be day after day regardless of other things going on in my life.
Lesson#7-Being overweight is the consequence of a lot of bad food choices,too much food,wrong type food,emotional eating when you're not feeling well...sometimes people eat to make themselves "feel" better(soothed) (usually sugary or salty things)but in the end they will feel worse because they have guilt feelings about eating junk or just "Lots" of "Good Foods" and it ruins their efforts to lose weight!
Lesson#8-Love myself enough to save me! This is a job I have to do! No one can do it for me....
Lesson#9-Be proud of any and all accomplishments no matter how small they may seem...a lot of little accomplishments put together can achieve Big rewards!
Lesson #10-Don't ever count yourself out just because your "wheels have been spinning in the same spot for awhile!" You just need a little ooomph! So try again and again and again if necessary! Never give up!
