Today would have been a good diet day except those Oreo, lol. I only had 6 so I proud of myself just two weeks ago I went on a binge where I ate not one but two whole bags of Oreo. I have been resisting the urge to weigh myself everyday. I still can't fit my clothes and I still can't afford to replace them either. I refuse to be hard on myself though eating just under 1600 calories is not bad I'm still in the fast break stage. Plus I have to work on eating more vegetables and drinking more water. If I get back in the habit of drinking more water and eating my fruits and vegetables on top of measuring my portions then I should not have a problem staying within my calorie count. 11 months until the wedding and the only thing I'm even slightly concerned about is my weight. This medication that I am on made me gain a lot of weight now I have to try and lose it while still taking my medication. I
keep hearing this crap about right reasons and wrong reasons to lose weight and if your losing for the "wrong" reasons then your not ready, bull hockey! I have lost weight for all kinds of reasons but I have not been able to keep it off. Losing for what other people deem as the right reason has no bearing on whether I'll keep it off. I need to keep monitoring my habits after the loss to maintain. I don't think you can make good habits until after you lose the weight because no matter what the reason behind the weight loss you ARE dieting. It's like saying because you're pregnant you know how to be a mom. You are giving birth to the new you and there are whole new issues that come with it. I heard the pitch that weight watchers gave me about they aren't a diet but they were to me because I gain all of that weight plus more the second I stopped going. I did not make it a lifestyle. I don't think until you get to the point where you can maintain your habits without making it something you have to think about all the time you can consider it a lifestyle change. Maybe getting in the routine of dinners that I cook making a monthly calendar will make it so I don't have to think everyday day in and day out about what I'm going to eat would make it easier on me.
hmmmm..... just another rant about what goes through my brain lol
