Everything In Moderation, Including Moderation!

This Sparked Me!

If you're like me, part of what caused your weight gain is an "all or nothing" mentality. I can't count how many times I said to myself, "I blew my diet, so I might as well eat whatever I want now." I no longer think like that. I plan my meals and allow for decadence here and there. I have found I can eat what I want if I practice moderation. This works for me. If anything, it prevents a binge because I don't feel deprived.

    I totally agree. I have fought for years to dump the all-or-nothing attitude and I think I'm finally succeeding. Some days, I eat things I shouldn't but I'm learning that it has nothing to do with what I do NEXT. What I do NEXT is absolutely the most important part of weight loss and weight maintenance!

    This is definitely the right attitude to have. You can go over your calories some days, just don't make it a habit. It's not the end of the world if you eat something you shouldn't.

    I like your outlook! I am a yo-yo dieter, binge eater, emotional eater... and that it what I am trying to conquer. No more all-or-nothing - MODERATION. I know that I cannot consistantly do without any food forever so I cut back most days and let loose (not cut loose!) some days. emoticon emoticon emoticon
