small and simple skills

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

It is hot here, in the 90s breaking all kinds of heat records. I don't remember having such a hot April before. Anyway, I stepped on the scale this morning after tugging to get my rings off last night and it registered that I had gained a full pound in 3 days. Rings went on fine, but this evening I am concerned they won't come off. So I can say I am experiencing lots of water retention. I also find that I am extremely hungry! I have tried vitamins (which sometimes helps when I am craving food.) I am drinking my 8 of water, but probably get too much sodium.

I just want the weight to come off - without it being so hard. Yet, I know that it is through the difficult nature of the self denial and gaining self control that can cause me to learn the better behavior. By learning these small and simple skills and applying them to my life I hope to be able to accomplish great things. No sugar + Less food + More water = Lighter me.

    You can accomplish GREAT things!
    starting with small goals is the very first step. If you are hungry try to incorporate more fresh or frozen veggies into your plan. I find they fill me up but do not add allot of calories to the bottom line for the day. Most veggies have awesome nutritional value so go to the farmers market this week and try a few new in season veggies it might just be what helps with the first steps you are taking.
