i just read this article about finding the best eating plan for LIFE. it's different for all of us, and as long as we expect one size to fit all, we'll be sorely disappointed. we have to figure out what our body needs, and then take care to supply that. this article nails it on the head, i think. if i can't find an eating plan i can stick to for the rest of my life, i will keep yo-yoing.
since i was a teenager, i've been up and down in pounds, and up more, and down more, and up even more, down some.....and on and on. i keep hoping i'll just be down and stay there...i think i'm getting close. i've figured out what i need to do, and i can do it. until life gets really stressful.
i have good eating habits, but it's the extras that get me (and usually when i'm stressed)....sugary treats and alcohol. i need to limit those to occasional treats, and NOT when i'm stressed. my focus for now is to do what i know to do, find some different ways to handle stress, and continue to work on changing how i talk to myself.
it's not flashy, and i may not lose lots of pounds right away, but i know, in the long-run, changing what happens in my head is going to make ALL the difference in the world.
