Once again, I've gotten through night #3 - without mindless night eating! Yay.
Having said that, however, I went to bed hungry.....and I tossed and turned a long time, even though I was very tired. I don't want that to be a nightly occurrence. That will certainly set me up for another binge. (and...no.....a carrot wouldn't have done last night......)
So what to do.......?
I have to prioritize.
I have two main weight loss goals:
1. to stick to my Weight Watchers' program - eat within my point range by
spacing out my meals throughout the day. Aim for a pound a week.
2. to eliminate my mindless night eating habit which has destroyed my
weight loss efforts these many years, on and off.
Right now, I'm not sure I can do both at the same time. I need to eat a bit more during the day and evening in order not to be ravenous at 11pm....and thus not to go out to the kitchen ---- and ruin my whole day. I'm in pretty bad physical shape....and even walking is painful on most days. I MUST look into chair exercises - both to tone and burn some calories.......
It's an on-going process.....and weight loss is paramount. But even more crucial is breaking this self-defeating behavior of mindless night eating.....
Every day is a new day.....a new challenge. I hope I'm up to it.
When my pain amps up --- I'm used to 'comforting' myself with forbidden late night treats......I'll have to find other ways to compensate for food......
But, seriously, this requires lots of thought. Anything worthwhile, does, I guess.
As someone wise said,
Have a 'wonderfilled' day!!!
