Then and Now... Strategize

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

The main thing that has plagued me in my past efforts is the idea of "normal" eating versus eating to lose pounds. Before Spark People, I had a huge on or off mentality which is a very real way to ADD pounds. When on... Watching what I eat and how much, but when off... Thinking I should go ahead and enjoy what I had been denying myself. Setting a "back on" date, I would overeat and pile on the pounds, thinking "I can just take these extras off when back on" but not always being successful. That, of course prompts a new "on" .... As soon as I get rid of (eat) whatever may be around that I should not eat then... Yo yo yo yo

Now, I may have on and off times, but the difference is that the off times are a day or maybe more and the whole time knowing I cannot (don't want to) just throw caution to the wind! I find it easier to give away or divide and freeze portions for later if the food is more a delectable delight than it is nutritious. I have been successful in just holding my weight where it is and not gaining, but I need to get serious about taking off the rest of the pounds that will take me to my goal!
