Know what to do but

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Trusting the process is very hard.
I am eating less calories but more than I need to loose.
I have upped the intensity of my walks and I believe we are going to join a gym this week to make more diversified exercising possible.
My mind knows what it wants to do but my body is just not ready for the next step.
I have been floating at my current weight for two years.
Hubby has lost down to a 32 waist and back up to 40 several times since 2007.
He won't listen and brings things into the house I should not have.
I feel like he comes in and says ... let's go out and eat ... I throw out my prepared lunch and we eat way more calories than we should. And i have to walk more to keep my weight stable.

It is the anniversary of my Mother's passing and I feel sad remembering the family drama of last year... But I have to keep believing that the process is in place..I have to just do each day with honesty and predictable behavior. I have pounds to my next goal. I know what to do. It is keeping remembering every moment of every day how much better I feel now.
I need to remember I will feel so much better. And maintenance will be so easy.

    Every time I get together with my family I have the same problem. Food has always been the center of all family gatherings. This does make it hard to eat right and to stop when your mind is telling you to, especially when they keep offering you another serving. LOL I just have to stay firm and say no thank you. It is hard but it is part of the learning process and the realization that you are the one in control and not the food.

    My pilates teacher had the same problem. She told her family if they brought the fattening/trigger food into the house she would toss it out, and she did. They stopped bringing the food home. Good luck!
