So there was Sandy. My daughter decided to make Chocolate Chip Cookies. They were really good. So good I already had two right before I worked out this morning. My immediate thought was, "Well I won't be tracking my food today!"
Then it hit me! I need to be disciplined about recording food, not just when I'm doing well and wanting to do well, but in these periods of rebellion too. So I am committing to recording every nasty little bite that passes my lips. Then I will have to face the ugly truth about what I'm putting in there. No denial. I will have to face it and then I will have to decide if I'm going to continue that trend and stay way to heavy, or I'm really going to change.
I sure do get tired of the weight battle. I can't seem to find the sustaining motivation I need to go long term.

Oh wait! This is a separate confession. I don't know how to set a goal that motivates me to change. I think I like comfort and self-satisfaction more than I want health and slenderness. At least that's what my repeated choices indicate. Is there anyone who can help me change my mind???

    "This self-responsibility is the necessary foundation upon which all success is built. Unless you take the time to build this foundation for yourself, your chances of being successful at permanent weight loss are not good."

    Hmm . . . I'm going to be thinking on this quote from the Mind Over Body page.
    Self-responsibility . . . Yeah, I don't like that. I'd rather make believe that someone else is responsible for me. I think someone else has been trying to tell me this but I haven't been listening. Now on to How to be responsible for myself in this area of life.
