Day 1: Staying motivated by checking in


Monday, July 21, 2014

Today, I'm getting back on my eating plan. I am sorely tempted to rejigger my meal plan to accommodate a martini tonight, but I think a better option would be to be strict with myself for a week to jump-start my weight loss.

I am hoping to stay motivated by "checking in" on my blog every day -- to give myself a pat on the back and to read the encouraging comments everyone so generously leaves me.

It's only 10 pounds, but then again I realized it's not the 10 pounds at all. The manner in which I've been eating (chips! soda! cookies! hot dogs! bratwurst! white bread!) makes me feel unwell. It really does. I have no energy, I'm hooked on sugar again, and I constantly feel locked in a struggle to get control of my food.

By the way, I'd have no qualms at all about eating a bratwurst now and then if it were planned as part of my daily intake. It's all this ad-hoc junk eating that bothers me.

GOAL FOR THE DAY: Stick to the plan. Forget the martini. Be strong, just for today. Just for this moment. I can do this.
