Yeah me, I've finally been able to stick to my eating plan for longer than a day! lol
I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about why I've been battling this weight thing all of my life. I can't remember ever being at my goal weight. Even when I was a kid!
The reason I've finally come up with is that every time I try to lose weight the whole "It's a lifestyle not a diet" mentality went in one ear and out the other. No surprise considering there's nothing in the middle to stop it! lol
Now that I've finally accepted that I'll always have to watch what I eat...all my life...I don't worry so much about an occasional slip. I used to let an "off" day provide me with a good excuse to go "hog wild" and eat everything that wasn't nailed down!
Soooo.... since I changed my mindset it's been easier.
What I've started doing is:
Of course, counting every morsel that I consume...even if it's not in the plan for the day because..."life happens" right?
Make myself sit down, away from the computer, and focus on what I'm eating, rather than shoveling it down between articles about nutrition and healthy eating!
Make sure that I take at least 20 minutes to eat. It really has helped.
And finally, I'm drinking the water I'm supposed to be drinking.
Funny...isn't this some of the same advice I've been reading for years?
Okay...so maybe I'm just a little slow! lol
Anyway, gotta get back to work, so here's hoping everyone has a great Sparky Day!!!!
