Just completed Week #3 of my 28-day self challenge to limit evening eating to only planned snacks....and I committed to checking in on my progress once a week, so here I am!
Week #1 was super, week #2 not so super (both already blogged), and now week #3 is done. It was, well, not bad... actually pretty good! "Pretty good" is brand new territory for this person formerly known as Miss All or Nothing, and that's amazing all by itself.
So, this week I find I'm actually satisfied with my efforts, though they weren't perfect, and I have the added encouragement of proving to myself that this is honestly doable. I was afraid that the evening eating was something that was somehow outside of my control (without unsustainable Herculean effort), and that it would frustrate my best efforts to get healthier. Instead, it turns out it really has been just a bad habit, and I figure I can make progress toward unlearning a bad habit, one day at a time. I quit drinking that way (i.e. one day at a time) almost thirty years ago, so I figure I can make better food choices that way, too.
All in all, nothing spectacular, nothing dramatic in either a good or a bad way, just "pretty good," but that's wonderful and I'm tickled! Thanks everyone for all your kind support. You guys are spectacular!
