I can do this, I know I can, it is my phrase that keeps repeating in my head. I have done my exercise for the day, thanks Coach Nicole, and I have eaten appropriately. I have been snacking and that never helps me. I need to sit down and eat meals and definitely not snack. I choose carrots sometimes and that is ok, but other times I choose something much more inappropriate, say honey roasted peanuts. They are not good fat or sodium wise. And sodium is a big issue of mine, because it causes me to gain water weight and that is not healthy. Tomorrow my goal is to not eat until I am miserable. I do not want to feel miserable later and I really hate that stuffed feeling. I am trying to avoid it. I will get some exercise in, if only some jumping jacks and such. I will have the morning to get that done. I am going to work really hard. I know I am maintaining, but if you start with the mindset that "hey I've made it, I don't have to worry about anything", that will cause me problems. I have lost weight and gained it back many times. I am looking to successfully keep it off this time. The thought that I am ok and can eat whatever I want won't help me keep it off. I have to recognize where my weaknesses are and I have to avoid them.
I know I can do this, I will be thankful that I have wonderful family to spend time with and wonderful food to eat.
