This experiment taught me, I still have issues with food and exercise alone can not get me to goal. Although I have lost a hundred pounds, the weight could come back on....I increased my exercise and at times the decision to exercise before I snack did curb my desire to eat but I want to find something that occupies my mind so I don't want to snack.
My life is in transition so I shouldn't be too hard on myself....once I get my own place then I will not have to resist temptation at night because I will not have it in the house. I know in life there is always going to be temptation but I want to get to the point that food is a source of nutrition and not see it as a means of pleasure. I will get there....just have to continue learning about the causes behind my issues with food and then come up with ways to fight the urges and bad habits. I was always a skinny girl growing up but I knew at a young age I had issues with food. Now it's time to figure out why....what caused me to put so much emphasis on food?
I am so proud of people that count their calories and track what they are doing....unfortunately I am not that type of person. My personality is that of a deep thinker...looking underneath the action for the reason behind it. What makes me tick is what I am looking for and once I figure out the why, I can figure out the solution and get myself the rest of the way to goal and stay there.
Pray everyone finds what works for them because we all deserve to be healthy and happy.
Tired of being a prisoner to food...I want to be in control free from the bonds that chain me!
