Glad I took the time...

Thursday, August 13, 2009

Went for a walk today at lunch and glad I'm did - not long after that it started raining like crazy! If I hadn't done it then, I know I wouldn't be going out after dinner for a walk (as much as I love the NW, I need to get over my aversion to walking in the rain!). Eating was challenging - I'm hungry! LOL - not in a bad way, though. I'm used to eating larger portions, so eating at healthy portions is taking my tummy a bit to adjust and shrink. But what's more important is that even though I'm hungry, I'm not snacking while I make dinner - I'm here reminding myself why I'm doing this. A little discomfort is NOT a bad thing! I need to learn to control my eating, not let my stomach decide for me when and what. Self-discipline has always been one of my weaknesses, so this has been a great opportunity for me to learn how to take control and make the choices I need to make and not rely on my body, which has not been trained to make healthy choices over the years, especially when it comes to stopping when full and waiting even though hungry. Instant gratification by food has been one of my constant struggles, one I am determined to overcome with the help of SP! So yes, I'M HUNGRY - and that's OKAY!
