Taking Back Control!

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

I had a great weigh in this morning!! OUTTA THE 140's!!!!!!!! HURRAY!!!!
Usually good weigh ins help me to stay motivated and eat healthily and in moderation (my biggest downfall). However, breaking out of the 140's made me feel great but at the same time something in my mind clicked like, "Well, you've worked so hard and now you're in the 130's, go ahead, reward yourself" I guess this is called the 'devil on my shoulder'... emoticon
well shucks, until this time I'd ALWAYS give into this nasty little thought and break back into the 140's.
NOT THIS TIME!! YAY!!! I had a great breakfast of Raisin Bran (suggested serving size), All Bran Bran Buds (suggested serving size), skim milk (suggested serving size YAY it's hard because I love my cereal with TONNES of milk usually), some cinnamon and 1/2 a grated apple.. NOM NOM NOM!! emoticon
The rest of the day was uneventful food wise and then came dinner... OY!!! So hard to eat in moderation at dinner for me!! For some reason my brain goes "what if you die in your sleep, EAT and enjoy!" It's strange.. hope I'm not the only one who has problems in the evening.
ANYWAYS I made a broccoli, cheese, rice and ham bake. It was good but not as cheesy as I like (on purpose!) lol. Guess what, I only had 1 serving!! YAY!!!!! So proud!!! I can never say no to seconds!!! For dessert I had a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich. NummM!!!
I've been reading about how if you do something consistantly for 21 days it becomes a habit. Well, ladies and gents, today was my Day 1 of eating only ONE serving at dinner and taking back the control and power to say NO to seconds!!!
emoticon So here's to TAKING BACK THE CONTROL!!!
Hurrah!! I'm feeling great and much more confident!!!
So, progress is being made!! I'm putting in the work and reaping the rewards. Who would have thought that something as silly as saying no to seconds for one evening to could mean SO much to a person. Well, I guess I'm silly then, because I'm very proud!!!
Sorry to probably bore you all but THANK YOU AND GOOD NIGHT!

PS I just noticed, I used to get really upset if I missed anything from one of my TV shows like missing a scene or even a phrase (imagine what happened when I missed an episode). Meanwhile, my diet and health were taking a backseat. I came delighted to report that I miss my shows just about every week now, at least 1/2 of them and I don't even care hardly, I am so busy preparing healthy meals and planning when I can fit exercise into my life that I don't really need the TV drama to make my life exciting anymore.
Baby steps right? lol

    Good for you to saying no to seconds! You are doing such a great job Brooke-you should be very proud of yourself! I know I'm proud of you:)

    Funny-I'm the same way now-I used to be addicted to the tv. I'd plan my whole week around my tv shows. Now I barely watch it. And of course for me, tv watching and eating went hand in hand. So I'm definitely saving calories as well.

    Hope you have a wonderful day girl-
