I Can Do This!!

Friday, April 02, 2010

I'm about 5 weeks into this, and I'm amazed at how "second nature" this has all become. And that's really a good thing. Now, when I go out to eat, I don't need to have the battle between the angel on one shoulder ("Order the steamed broccoli", she whispers) and the devil on the other shoulder ("You deserve the chocolate cake! It's sooooo yummy).

I really haven't scaled back on dining out with my friends, so I don't feel deprived. Eating out is such a big part of our society's social norm. Now I just plan ahead a little more, eating less at lunch and breakfast. In writing this, I can't help but think how painfully obvious this seems. Why didn't I just do this before?!

But I think I was just in denial, always with a ready excuse. I'm big boned, I don't have time to exercise, my thyroid is underactive.... or just simply mindlessly eating.

But now I have the Spark! And I'm fanning the flames for continued success.

  Good for you! It is easy to make excuses. The real challenge is making your life change and sticking with it.
Spark friends are a wonderful support tool. Use it.
