I've slid back into some old habits again, and now I've got to work on getting back on track. I saw an article on Spark People about 10 mistakes dieters make. First one was being on a diet in the first place. Which messed me up. Because I honestly don't know what else to call this. I can't just eat and do whatever I want because that's what got me where I am in the first place. So yes, there is some element of restriction. I have to consciously decide what I am going to eat and what exercise I am going to do each and every day. And I guess that's what makes this a lifestyle change. I've really been doing some thinking on this. Eating differently and making time to exercise --is-- a lifestyle change. I'm just frustrated at the moment, because no one else around me is doing things that way. So I feel like the odd one out. But I'm going to have to do it if I really want to lose weight and feel better.
A lot of this thought process was brought on when my sweet little four year old boy said to me, "Mommy, you eat too much." He didn't mean to hurt me. Children are just brutally honest. So I'm going to work on it. I'm getting back on track. And maybe someday, it won't be so much of a challenge. It will truly be a lifestyle change, my new way of life.
