I am smarter than this

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

After another disastrous food adventure this weekend I am trying to stay upbeat...another piece of cake...oh no, I couldn't...oh, maybe I could....oh heck yes I will...nom nom nom...

I wonder though when I will learn that I don't need that extra piece of cake...or that Ding Dong, or that bowl of Puff Corn...what IS puff corn anyways???

I KNOW all I need to about losing why am I not putting the total effort forward. This half-baked commitment is hurting my efforts in a big way. One step forward, two steps back is no way to get to your destination...

I am going to try doing it "one day at a time", "one meal at a time". Anything to break up this pattern and cycle...I have to remember that I am worth it. And my body deserves more than junk food to keep it running...

    You can do it! I need to remember that, one day at a time mantra. Sometimes it's overwhelming to look at the whole journey or big goal. I need to focus on today. What can I do today to be my healthiest self.

    I LOVE those runners filled with freggies! I want that to be me! :-)

    One thing about starting a new day is that you have that new day to make different choices. So put those bad days in the past and keep moving forward.

    I totally get what you are saying though. I feel like I have days or even weeks like this as well. And puff corn... so addicting. I try not to buy it because I know once I start eating it, I won't stop.

    emoticon Just keep pushing forward and always keep in your head that today is a new day!

    Try changing the dance. Make it two steps forward and one back. That's kind of where I am at. I rarely buy any trigger foods or any snacks. I fear midnight snack attacks. I usually pass and decline social events. It seems we can't do a thing socially without involving food. Instead I go to the pool or out for a bike ride or walk. One can walk or wog while watching a movie Exercise-exercise-exercise!!!
    It relieves stress and you sleep better and it burns calories.

    Wishing you the best on your weight loss journey. MA

    I can't eat what I don't have...this has worked great for me. I also turn down offers to go out to eat with my friends right now. Its just what I have to do. You can do this!!

    emoticon Try not purchasing your weakness treats, believe me I know this is easier said than done! When it's time for me to do weekly shopping I now make sure I eat breakfast first, have my list together and bring along water and some mixed nuts. This keeps me full and easier to avoid temptation especially during checkout with all the junk kept at register!
