Coming Clean

Sunday, September 08, 2013

I have had issues with eating at night for over a year now. I do well all day long then at about 5 or 6 pm I get this little voice in my head telling me it's okay to eat because I have done well for the day. Then when I start eating I look at the calories of each servings instead of looking at the whole picture. For instance I tell myself, "It's okay to eat this because it's only 200 calories" I never look at the whole picture

What it boils down to is I am lieing to myself. It's time that I came clean. I calculated how much I ate last night and it came to 1300 calories! Thats on top of the 1200 calories I have eaten for the day. This adds up to 2500 calories a day!

Also, when I exercise I count those calories that I have burned. I tell myself it's okay to eat because I burned those calories.

I have all the right tools to succeed. I have Weight Watchers, I exercise at least 6 days a week at the gym and I walk, and of course I have Sparks.

The more I write the more I feel like a failure. How can a person actually lie to themselves like I have? emoticon

I was thinking about maybe started an accountability team and/or finding a one on one accountability partner.

Any Takers?

Thank you for reading this.

Today is a new day.
