Coming out of the closet...

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

This is my first blog so be kind.

One of the many goals I had set for myself with the Spark never included this one. I guess I never addressed how much it really hurt my efforts.
So today, Tuesday, February 16, 2010...
I confess.......
I did it,
I said it,
now it is time to do something about it.

I often find myself "testing" my cooking. "Testing" things behind the refrigerator door. "Testing" when no one is looking. Offering to do the dishes so I can "test" the leftovers. Claiming I love to eat cold food so I again can "test" and see if we should eat that item for dinner. Ha, I am the master of testers!
I am only hurting myself and my chances of making a realistic lifestyle change.
I pledge to be honest with myself.
If I really want that cold food then I need to find a way to fit it into my daily lineup.
My #1 goal this week has become ... take responsibility and be accountable, don't hide what I am eating. That is part of the unhealthy lifestyle that I am leaving behind. Be proud of how far I've come. Keep making healthy choices and make the journey fun.

    I totally understand! I was a nibbler (usually on my kid's leftovers because I didn't want to throw away all that food). It totally caught up to me! I am doing much better with resisting. It's better to throw away the food than to throw it into my body emoticon
    Admitting your weakness is the first step!

    Weight Watchers says "If you bite it write it." I guess you could use "If you nibble you have to scribble" LOL Keep tracking -- it's too easy to accumlate unaccounted for calories. Best of luck -- from a fellow nibbler!

    Nibble, nibble little mouse. Soon I will be big as a house.

    Ow - wake up call - I still "taste" this and that. We'd better start counting the nibbles, eh?

    Go, Grrl!

    You've taken a huge, necessary step to your success, Honesty with yourself! I encourage you to continue that honesty with yourself along your journey to health. That's the biggest part of the battle, learning who you are and why you do what you do so that you can change it for the better emoticon
