Making Choices

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

I learned a valuable lesson today that I do not think I learned in the past.

People are going to slip up. I'm going to slip up. What I have done before when trying to lose weight, I've gotten mad and even beaten myself up. Today I did not do that. This morning I had left over goulash for breakfast. I decided to get some ritz crackers with it as well. Well I ended up eating a whole row of Ritz crackers. Instead of beating myself up, I ate the crackers then thought about it. It was my decision to eat that many. they did not jump into my mouth. I can't let myself be negative and make myself feel worse about decisions I make. When I do that, I end up feeling guilty - then feel sad - then eat more. It's a horrible cycle. No more.

    It's so important to know what are triggers are and not to beat ourselves up when we fall down. Just pick ourselves up, dust off and keep going!!

    You are right! This has been one of the biggest changes for me over the last year~if I have a binge or splurge on completely unhealthy things, I own it and move on. I don't use it as an excuse to keep overeating, but I know it's just one moment or one meal and the next time is my opportunity to get right back on track.

    The sooner we learn this the sooner we can get past it. Be strong and keep up the excellent work.
