+3 lbs.

Monday, May 21, 2012

Since my last entry at the end of the weight race I have gained 3 pounds. I realize that if I want to be successful I MUST track my calories. If I don't, I cheat. Almost always at night. Instead of having a healthy snack that will satisfy, I eat a bag of chips or some other garbage.

I have not been making great choices and I have beed tired, lethargic and battling the black dog. When I put it all together, I realize that I am happier when I am dieting. It really is that simple. If I want to be happier, I need to track my food. How easy is that!?
I don't even think it is losing weight. I think it is the control I have over my life and working towards a goal.

So I went and stocked up on groceries last night and am prepared to get on track. So far I have only had coffee this morning, but I didn't use sugar, I used Splenda and ff 1/2&1/2.

Also, I have a new mantra I found on Pinterest. I am going to add it to my quotes, it may be from a Nike ad or something: If you are tired of starting over, quit giving up.

    So agree with all of this Jen! I would substitute 'eating healthy" for dieting. Dieting feels temporary and reminds of deprivation.

    I was walking to pick up Eliana today and i felt the heaviness in my body I haven't felt for a while.

    I too have been battling the 'black dog" it is a lot of stifled creativity for me - but now the fear of not moving is greater than the fear of moving so off i go :-)

    Cheers friend!
