I'm motivated. I'm not motivated. I'll start tomorrow. I can't eat that. Yes I can. I can not over eat on that. Yeah right.
Dieting is hard. I have wanted to lose weight for what seems like for ever. I've done almost every thing. My fav is just plain ole counting calories. But I always quit when my weight loss stalls.
I was down to 136 in March now I'm back up to 151. I know how to do it. calories in calories out. exercise. in moderation. etc etc.
I have never been consistent. ever. ever. one time I was somewhat consistent for 12 weeks. during a at work weight loss competition. I won, but I wasn't nearly as consistent as I should have been.
I have a Persian cat who gets hair balls often, gross. so one day I decided that I should start brushing her every day. At first it was a hard habit to start. I get up let my dogs out and fill their bowls with food. My cats food is above them where they can't get it. She was there one morning so I brushed her while she ate. That night same thing, she just happened to be there. The next morning she wasn't but I decided to fill her food container and she came running. after maybe a week of me making sure she was there when I fed the dogs was all it took. Now she automatically gets up there every time I feed the dogs. So now I brush her twice a day like clock work. It's just part of the normal day now. all because I was consistent in teaching that to my cat. And doing it myself.
So in theory i should be able to do the same thing. which I already new but now I have "proof".
my plan is to start building habits, stay consistent. Live the way I plan to when I'm healthy/skinny/lean/fit now. Not waiting until then. Live now.
My other problem are my comfort/favorite foods and not something to have every day, unless they are with my calories. So i can't have many or much unless I de-calorie-ize them.
