My friend Angela loaned me some inspirational weight loss/maintenance books. I'll admit that I'm only skimming the weight loss ones since the authors' stories are so different from mine that I can't relate to the behaviors.
But, I did pick up one interesting granule I'm changing a bit and adopting for myself. This is the year of NO (Not an Option).
It is not an option to eat nuts or chocolate, since even the smallest amounts lead to a binge.
It is not an option to miss a workout because my ankle hurts. It simply means is I need to do something else.
It is not an option to sit in front of my computer for hours on end without getting up. The timer is now set at 75 minutes when I'm working or reading. Then, 5 minutes of brisk walking.
I'm sure there will be more NO statements as the year progresses.
