Hump Day

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

Normally at least in the last 2 months Wednesday has become a day that I record a video regarding my weight loss/gain and post it up on our youtube channel. Not sure I want to do that today - the scale moaned when I was getting close to it so I pretty much knew it wasn't going to be in my favor.

NOPE ... NADA ..... OY VEY GET OFF ME (I'm sure that's what it said)

I didn't stay true to myself this past week. Monday we had to take our grandson to campus (and hour away) and after he did what he needed to we stopped at a place to eat WELL I stared and stared, read and reread every salad on that menu and what did I order ? Patty Melt and french fries - I ate 1/2 of the sandwich and all but hmmmm 5 fries :( The other day I ate a double wendy's burger, most of the fries and a diet coke.

So I have no one to blame but myself ... this is how I've been my entire life, really want to lose this weight but give in all too easily.

So I'm starting all over ... I think instead of reading the how-to's and what to eat tips on the computer maybe I need to purchase a book and have handy.

That's about it ... have a good one folks :)

    I tell myself that I am "allowed" to eat whatever I want, but not too much, because I will be able to repeat the opportunity in the future; there will be other chances to eat the same things... this has helped me a lot, because there is no longer the "eating as much as possible in case I never get the chance again".
    Try it! You too might be surprised at how successful this strategy can be... and don't beat yourself up if it doesn't work totally each time, it's a gradual process changing habits of any kind.

    It isn't easy, always making the best healthful choice. I've embraced my inner picky eater and that helps me limit the damage. I don't like cold fries - so I eat a few (okay, maybe 10) and let the rest get cold. I don't like mashed potatoes, so that one is easy. I don't like gravy, so again, easy. Don't like fried foods most of the time. That often leaves me with grilled chicken (healthy), and then I can ask for rice (so-so) or double veg (healthy) or side salad (healthier).

    It takes practice - but really, sometimes it helps to only eat food you LOVE and ignore all the mediocre.

    When I go out to restaurants I have started to not eat the bun on a sandwich. I still eat French fries, but my husband and I share an order. I have learned that I feel better eating smaller amounts but don't feel like I'm depriving myself of what I want.

    One thing i did before was track my day in advance. Even the night before .... That way, you know right where you are, and can budget wisely. (Not too many sands in restaurants are budget friendly ... heavy in both carbs and fats) ... Restaurants manage to make it look so appealing on the menu, cos truth be told: they don't care. ... Good luck and i bet you can whip this one!
