Default Here I go..

I've been down this path time and time again. I've tried and re-tried losing weight over and over and over again, but this time I feel like I have the want and the motivation more than ever before and I'm ready to do this.

My biggest downfall is and always has been that I do not know moderation. I have to do something all or nothing - for example, when I was doing low carb, if I happened to mess up and eat a piece of lasagna or toast, rather than just picking up and carrying on, I would suddenly be eating every carb in sight and totally throw in the towel for the next few days. And, on a low calorie diet, if I ate over my cals and it was only 4 p.m., well then why not just gorge myself on an entire pizza since the day is already ruined? I need to get away from this mindset. I was tempted to go back to low carb/Atkins because it did control my binges but I still overate, and I do feel better with more fruits and veggies than that allowed. I also don't think calorie counting is for me because I love to cook and just make up recipes as I go, and I would find myself stressing out over exact calculations, etc. So, what I'm thinking to start myself this time is I am just going to be more "aware" of what I am putting into my body. I am going to keep processed foods to a very minimum and my carbs will come from healthy, good sources such as berries, quinoa, etc. and I will shoot for eating them earlier in the day, lots of veggies, leaner meats, and LESS mindless snacking. Did I mention tons of water?! Exercise needs to be in there too, but small steps here ... If I happen to induldge in something that I know isn't my best choice, big deal. Move on and don't derail myself

Good luck too!

One meal at a time works wonder. After all, when we come to think of it, the 'logics' behind the "I might as well eat the whole pizza now" is completely flawed and stupid. Too bad it usually takes actually eating the darned thing to realize it!

You can do this!

Focusing on one choice at a time really helped me through my process this time around. Instead of viewing an off-plan event as "ruining" the whole day/week/attempt, try view it as one off-plan event and get right back on plan with the very next choice you make.

The good thing about having a lot of weight to lose is that your body is very forgiving - you can make a mistake now and then and still see results over a longer time. So don't be too hard on yourself for slipping up - nearly all of us do it - but just get right back on plan with the very next bite of food.

* Remember that the temptation in front of me is not the last of its kind that I will ever see; say "I'll pass today."
* Say "no!" to my whiny inner five-year-old.
