I can plan what I eat in the mornings but I have no control over food budget or dinners. All I can do is exercise portion control, which sometimes is hard when things look good and smell good.

Great mind set, Beth!! I'm a big believer in planning and preparing...plan your meals and snacks ahead of time, decide what exercise you'll do tomorrow, and yes! plan some rewards!! You can do this!!

Okay - so now I have to leave the house....I'm going to pack my lunch. Seems like a duh - but this would be a perfect excuse to eat out and likely overeat, if I let it as I'm taking a couple of girls to an appointment just around lunch time.
Yah, me...
Thanks all.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts! I've been thinking a lot about this very thing lately. Something has to go through my head that leads to the overeating. I need to take account of what I think, what emotions I'm reacting to and why I respond the way I do with food.

Thanks again! You hit on some things that I hadn't even started to consider! More fuel for my thought fire!

Excellent advice.

So if you are setting daily goals to reach you should set daily rewards to help keep you motivated on reaching those goals!

I keep a chart on habits I want to work on or goals I want to reach - can be judged on a daily or weekly basis. I have it all on a chart on poster board and then I give myself pretty stars on the chart when I reach them.

"There's a difference between knowing the path and walking the path." Morpheus in The Matrix

"Failure is only postponed success...The habit of persistence is the habit of victory." -Herbert Kaufman

Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do."
- Pope John XXIII

Sounds like you are having a good day, and it is each day or one step at a time. Losing 1 to 2 pounds a week is the most you want to lose anyways because this is about a healthy lifestyle. Have a good day and a tip of the glass of water to you.

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. "

Okay - so I'm on day 2. I'm going for a walk this morning and I'm thinking already about how much weight I must have lost. Then I think...wait a minute honey, it's only been one day.
Instant result expectations are certainly a reason I've given up in the past. The addictive personality in me - wants instant gratification. When I don't get it - I give up - or justify my eating but telling myself I'm not that fat.....oh brother heh? The things that roll around in the brain are so dangerous.
Now, I am proud of myself for sticking to the program and excercising for one day, I need another 'one day at a time' today. So, the focus is today - and each meal as it comes - not on results...as the weight is just a symptom. I'll try not to fix the symptom, but the problem.
So....track my food, excercise, share my thoughts by posting.
So far so good, (it's 9:02 am) - so here's to a great day for all! (tipped up my water bottle)
Thanks for sharing this food recovery journey.
Warmly,
Beth
