Lack of Patience

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

I have zero patience for this new "journey" I am on. I am not seeing any results. The more I try to lose it seems that's when I gain....ughhhhhh

    Don't give up - just keep trying something different and you may stumble upon something that works. I did recently when I complained to a friend that I couldn't lose weight because I was starving all the time. It started when I got up shortly after 6 in the morning and the hunger would be really bad all day until I forced myself to stop eating at 7 P.M.. She suggested I try the 8 hour diet where you do all of your eating within 8 hours. It seems weird but it conquered my all day eating frenzy. I still eat healthy and lower carb and avoid gluten and processed foods when I can. I now don't eat until between 10:30 and 11 A.M. and quit between 6:30 and 7 P.M. No more hunger and I've lost 13 pounds without changing my exercise program. I hope you find something that works, GF!!

    don't think of it so much as a journey. Journeys end, and you are trying to make a permanent change. Relax with it, and take the pressure off yourself. You can do it, concentrate on healthier habits, like a relaxing stroll a couple times a day. I think my walking is easier to stick to than the eating discipline. I bought a belt. I took large plates out of the cupboard, only use smallish ones. Track what you eat, and after a few weeks of analyzing it, make a small change. track, and see if it helps toward your goal. Big changes kill you, trust me. Small changes are manageable. Like if you drink 3 cans of pop a day, switch out 1 for iced tea or ice water with lemon. Small change, and maybe, not even a caloric change, but it may have a positive impact after a few weeks. I fear you may expect too much, too fast. Sorry about all this. I mean well.
