Finally seeing the light

Thursday, December 27, 2012

No I haven't started losing weight again but I have been working on getting my mind in the right place.

I am reading so many self help books it's unreal but I am focusing on what I want. I want to kick my negative voice so far away that I won't be able to hear her shouting at me that I am never going to succeed.

Yes I want to be healthy but as Shaun T says I want to look and feel good. Eating in excess food that is not good for my body does not make me feel good. Exercise does.

I realized that for the past year I have been chopping and changing so many times that I am not giving myself a chance to succeed. My all or nothing mentality has no more place in my life.

Yes some days will be better than others.
Yes it's a long long process
No regrets, can't change what's done whether it's the immediate past or the distant past.

I am committing to starting to look after myself.

I am continuing to exercise 5-7 days a week.
I am going to eat smaller meals more frequently and include anything I feel like having but in moderation.

No more cycles of depriving and binging.

My focus is to stop depriving but at the same time stop giving myself excuses to eat when I am not hungry.

    I'm so happy to see you are still here--still fighting.

    Good plan. It is a long process and it involves starting again if you get back on track, but exercise and portion control are 2 major keys of success.

    Getting over throwing in the towel at one failure is cited as the basic difference between making it and not making it at changing eating habits permanently by long term change maintainers. It makes such sense I can't believe it took me so long to accept it. Quit quitting! Keep the detours short and get back on the road. It's a nice road! emoticon
