My Addiction

Sunday, March 17, 2013

Confession: I'm addicted to cereal. I could probably eat an entire box of honey nut cheerios in one sitting. Thank goodness I've never gone that far, but I do binge on cereal way too often.

I did it today...out of boredom...and that hungry feeling in my belly after trying to start this lifestyle change thing for the umpteen millionth time. It's so disappointing to see myself succumb to these feelings after having such motivation to start living healthy. BUT, I will pick myself up, dust off and move forward.

I wish I could pinpoint that one thing that will make me stop and think before jumping into a huge bowl of cheerios again. Yes, I know I should think about my goals and how "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels" but during that moment when I lose self-control, that's not what I focus on.

So, the key must be to, STOP, take a step back and let a few moments pass before pouring a bowl. Being mindful is such a key action step to a healthy lifestyle.

    Thanks ladies! My little boy eats cheerios, and it's not fair for him not to have them because mommy has no control! If it was sugary cereal, I would just not buy it, but cheerios are healthy in moderation, so I want him to eat them. I should just not touch them, because they are a trigger for me. Thanks again for the encouragement!!

    Maybe you shouldn't keep Cheerios in your house? I've had to do that with things...

    You know you have a weakness to cereal, and that's a start. Also, you know that boredom triggered your weakness. Now the main thing is to redirect your focus.

    I had to go through my pantry and put 'Mr. Yuck' stickers on everything sweet or considered junk food. Then I put up a motivational picture up, with the words, "Little by little, for change does not happen overnight. It took years for me to be this weight and it will take time for the weight to come off. Keep busy and stay positive."

    I'll keep you in my prayers. Best of luck on your weight loss.
