How do I get my mojo back?

Thursday, May 30, 2013

I am so frustrated with myself. Last year I started on my healthy lifestyle change and was very successful until about December. Then I started slipping back into some of my bad habits (like eating too much sugar) and I stagnated for several months. But over the last 2 months, I have gained 10 pounds back of the 90+ I lost last year.

I give myself a pep talk every morning and say that yesterday is done and gone and today is a new day to get back on track, and every day by mid-afternoon I have already eaten my entire calorie allotment, many of which were empty calories providing no nutritional value at all. Then I eat a big dinner and blow it again.

I KNOW what I should be doing. I did it very successfully last year, but I just can't seem to force myself to say "NO" to my bad habits.

Are there any sage words of advice out there? I need help!

    I agreed with Swanatopia. When I eat processed flours and sugars, I tend to crave more sweets. Also, how are you doing with drinking water? If i drink soda, it tends to make me hungrier. Also, are you exercising? For some reason, when I work out I do not want to eat bad stuff. I don't want to undo the good I am doing. Good luck and I hope you get back on track. Set a goal and set a reward for yourself when you get there. Think back to what was successful for you before.

    Empty the house of all bad foods and replace with healthy as soon as you can. White to wheat. It's a great start and will give you the motivation you need to start eating healthy again!
