With the help of Beauty_Within, I figured out that part of what's going on with me is that I'm overwhelmed and trying to change too much at once. So I'm going back to the beginning and starting over, adding something each month (or when I feel like I have the previous thing down cold).
This month I'm working on tracking my food, not worrying too much about the calories, and drinking water. Part of that is learning to listen to my body and not put off food until I'm so hungry I eat anything I can find. I'm also going to try to do a little bit of some sort of movement every day, but I'm not going to stress about that, either.
I have a terrible habit of trying to make changes too fast and too big. If I want to change, I have to learn how to slow down. (I have to learn that in a lot of areas, actually.) I just want things to have gotten to the change part NOW! I'm that impatient, really.
I guess I should do all the starting worksheets, too. But for right now, that feels overwhelming, so I'm going to let that go and do it when I feel less overwhelmed.
