Changing my thought process

Friday, May 25, 2012

So, after I posted my Thursday blog I kind of felt the funk return. I was doing dishes and was discouraged by the condition of the house, stress, work, etc. So, what I now need is a little bit of introflection and positive self talk.

I am encouraged by the fact that I made smarter choices about supper. I only made half of the crust. I also made salad to go with it. I didn't give myself a chance to eat more than half of the crust. I got an "ultra thin" crust and calculated that eating half of the crust made how I like it would still be totally reasonable for supper. I am proud of myself for eliminating the temptation to eat the whole pizza. Yay me!

This past week I have struggled with snacking in the evening before I go to bed. It has been fairly healthy, but still snacking. Ive still been staying in my ranges, but again, Im snacking when I don't need to be. Tonight was no exception. I got hummus and veggies and was enjoying it quite a bit. I ate some, but then put it away. I put the hummus away when there was still some left in the container. I didn't finish it...I could have, but I didn't. I didn't just munch at it until it was gone. I made the decision to quit eating and put it away. Yay me!!

So, here is me celebrating that I was able to turn some less than stellar choices into positive experiences.

    It isn't so much the snacking, it is the mindless/late night/no reason to be snacking that is bothering me. That has got to go!

    If you're staying in your range, snacking doesn't have to be demonized. As long as you choose a serving of veggies or something reasonable, snacks can be a big help to weight loss - food is not the enemy. I have 2-3 snacks a day and it really helps keep my metabolism burning.

    I am so trying to find a visual representation of a food coma...and how I feel the next day when I over eat now (HORRIBLE...physically). When I get one I'll share it with you, I'm going to put it up in my room. :-P

I'm trying to do the little steps not finishing things when I can, and I used's harder with a whole family around, because I may not get to finish it. Usually if I leave part of something good behind, it gets eaten before I get to it again. That's one of the stumbling blocks with why I gained so much weight.

Ahhh and now I'm hyjacking your blog. :-P I just came here to say way to go, and keep it up!!!! :-D

    Great job! You are holding yourself accountable for your choices without beating yourself up! What a victory. There are so many days that I feel like jumping on the eating train and crashing. I reflect about how long it took me to lose the weight I have lost and how I feel when I choose to eat healthy. You are doing amazing! Keep it up. emoticon
