Donna, i think we all know what we are supposed to do but doing it is another thing. i had a major breakthrough with paul mckenna's i can make you thin... here are his 4 golden rules:
1. eat when you are hungry
2. eat what you like - not what you think you should eat
3. eat it consciously - pay attention to what you are eating, take your time, enjoy it, savor the tastes.
4. stop when you are full - if you think you are, stop and if you are still hungry in 15 mins eat again.
this has set me free, i go out to eat, i enjoy my food, i eat what i like.
the minute a food is "forbidden" your mind craves it.
i like the idea of substituting a healthier version of a food too if you like it. i find i like lowfat cottage cheese as much or better than reg, etc
the other thing, is try to get at least a 10 min walk in several times a day. even if you move alot for your work, which seems like you do. do extra. also maybe, get a pedometer and try to get 10,000 steps in.
and most important, just take it a day at a time.
using these things i have lost 67 lbs since christmas. i enjoy my food, i don't feel burdened by a diet. it is now a lifestyle.
I can do all things in Him who strengthens me.
A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two men can stand back-to-back and conquer.
