New beginning

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

I realise looking back over the last few months, and at my very poor progress that I have tackled this in a way that was not the best approach. I didn't have a proper plan, but was sort of doing it on the fly. I am working my way through the 28 day challenge and this has helped me identify my starting steps. For me simply cutting down on what I am eating isn't going to do it - I really need to look at what I want from my life, and what I want to give to my life. What are my "true" goals - not just to lose pounds, but to actually transform the way I live. And to look at the reasons why I have failed in the past. The more I think about it the more I realise that I have never sat down and set myself proper, achievable goals. I have had plenty of pie in the sky goals, but in retrospect I can see that I was doomed to fail because they were not things that I could realistically achieve. It has taken me a lifetime to get to where I am now, and I can see now that I need to have a roadmap for success. Otherwise I'll just go opn getting lost! SP is great - and there is so much support out there. One day at a time....

    I agree with rainbowchoc about the water, it sounds so silly so goodness knows why it works. I would add very slow eating, and thinking about how every mouthful tastes. I found when I stopped 'inhaling' my food, and started thinking of the different tastes and textures, that a couple of things that I thought I liked, actually I didn't. I also was full much faster. If you can get your head right, and it takes a lot of straight talking with yourself, the rest will follow. emoticon
