I'm learning!!

Saturday, November 17, 2012

Well, losing weight is definitely a process.. I am learning more and more about what works for me and what triggers poor choices on my part.
I have found that when I am tired and hungry, I will eat far too much and eat whatever I can find instead of finding something healthy.
I also found today that I can't bake and expect myself not to eat what I made.. I baked chocolate chip cookies today and planned on eating just 2 today.. Yeah... That didn't happen. I saw the and smelled them and had far too many... But instead of getting down on myself like I usually would, I decided to use it as a learning opportunity... I know that I am not yet ready for that much temptation... I love baked goods... And for right now need to stay away from them... Good to know!!!

    i have a hard time putting down the bacon, any cheese or potato chips! i have a mantra in my head "the second bite tastes the same as the first". keep it up and you'll be achieving your goals and setting new ones soon!! emoticon

    I have what I call trigger foods. Foods I can't eat just a little bit of. Even wheat thins. My husband has lost 80 lbs so he is very supportive and we don't have those foods in the house. We have a treat day and then we got something that is a trigger food and eat it. I have lost 40 lbs this year. It's been a slow loss but I am so glad I have lost it. Hang in there you will figure out what foods to stay away from as you go. You can do this. Heck if I can so can you.

    I am the same way.. right now I can not handle restraining myself around baked goods so I am trying my best to avoid them... Im getting better at it. You are doing great and way to have a positive attitude! emoticon

    Definitely! I also many times thought I could bake and not eat, but there are certain things that just pass normal tolerance. It can be easier as you get more used to eating less. (I find it easier to resist if the cake is not cut, but with cookies that doesn't help!) Good for you for not whipping yourself. You learned. Just take that knowledge and apply it next time.
