Failure is temporary, to give up is permanent.

Another day within parameters, it is getting easier to do this. Yesterday was iffy at noon, as I had a chili dog that took a huge bite out of everything item, carbs, fats, calories.
But I had a look a a recipe on Sparkpeople for green beans with almonds and onions that sounded great, I made it and had only it for dinner. It was delicious , totally filled me up, totally made me happy and satisfied with the wonder flavor and allowed me to end my day within the guideline parameters.! Oh happy day.
I have completed a full week and feel like I have made a lot of progress and getting my head back on straight. I was able to add in some exercise yesterday as well.
This week I have learned to be very aware of what I eat, and learn to eat only real food. (chili dogs will not be one of the things I keep on the list)
I have learned to listen to my body, and eat more slowly. I have learned that you must adjust your meals and not just eat because the clock says it is time to eat.
I have not felt deprived this past week in any way, on now to week two of the rest of my life.
One thing I have learned is failure must not stop you in your tracks, failure is just a place to start over again working your way to success. Failure is temporary, to give up is permanent.
