How are you feeling today?
Have you been able to stick to your plans? If yes, what is working for you... if no,, what is not working for you
Are you still riding the wave of euphoria with the prospects of some great goal?
Take the time to really dig deep and see if you are committed
to this change in your life or if there is a little part of you that
So often, people will lament about starting a diet
or weight loss program and by the 3rd day it's just too hard or
doesn't work. Really look at your plan and decide if you need
to tweak your ideas and changes. Remember, radically chang-
ing your whole lifestyle is very difficult. Consider taking a few
areas at a time and begin to ease into good healthy changes:
I am not sure if I am totally ready to lose weight,,, the truth of the matter is that YES,,, part of me is reluctant,,, I like eating ice cream at 11 pm or 4 cookies and milk for lunch,,,,,,,, I feel like I am fighting against myself...... and I am frustrated.... I don't feel defeated but I know that I am using food in an improper manner...... I know I need portion control.... I eat good foods ... just too much of them,,, because I am using the food to "feel good" and to "keep the bad feelings away"... to push down any sad/lonely/uncomfortable feelings....... which logically is quite silly but in my reality,,, in my life,,, that is what I do. I radically change my life for a few days and then fall back into my old patterns of behavior. My relationship with food has to change,,, food is for energy ,,,, not for feeling better. Maybe I should take up drinking a glass of wine as well,,, it would save me tons of calories! LOL
Kidding aside,,, I have to be really mentally, emotionally and physically to make a change in my life. But I have so many changes going right now ... that it is hard for me to stay on track.
Nevertheless, I do want this,,,, so my committment is to go to a nutrition/weight loss support class and learn a healthy relationship with food.
