Well, I have to say all, that I feel AWESOME!! I've been in a funk for the last few months w/ little or no motivation. The last 2 days have been incredible!
I hope this motivates some of you who are really struggling as I have been. I really do think I've found my key to staying on program: PRE-PLANNING!
. I've done it on and off the last year and as a result, I've gained 20 pounds and I'm paying for weight loss at MRC, if that tells you anything. I know if I do this consistently, I won't keep falling off the wagon.
I went to get some groceries today and was able to come home and actually feel good about my purchases and started making meals for the week. I have everything planned out. Now my hubby is not on this program, but if I have my meals made, whatever I make him, he's OK with. (But I've preplanned his meals as well.) I don't mind eating something different and he's soooooo not going to eat all the veggies I do, so if I have a meal to reheat and eat with him, who cares? It's the dining together that counts!
Anyway, I feel like I'm in control again. I can do this. If my meals are prepared, I don't GRAB when I get home. Why should junk food have control over me? It shouldn't.
Next step: whatever my stresser's are, it's going to be "take a walk
" now. The dogs will love it!
I have also made a promise th be honest with my food journal. I've started using FitDay again. If I'm honest, I will see results. No eating from the bag, box, container. Get a plate, measure it out--even if it's a cheat food! CONTROL=CHOICE.
So, I am going to do this. I"m ready to be in charge. I'm worth it! And so are you!! Arm-in-arm, we'll all get through our low points! And we will have them. It's just how we handle them. If I'm not healthy, I can't take care of my hubby and dogs. I'm going to succeed!
I hope this will help someone!!
