A new day

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Here is it,,,June is upon us,,,summer in the air. And all my plans and good intentions of being where I want to be by now have come and gone, unfulfilled. I made promises to myself, and to others, and have not come through on them. I talk a good talk, but my actions have fallen short.

I wish I really, truly understood my brain. How can I want something so badly, and yet keep doing the very opposite of what will get me what I want? It is truly a mystery to me. Am I punishing myself? Do I feel I am not worthy? Am I afraid to let myself look good? What? What is it? Is the lure of some food just so irresistible? I mean, that is part of it,,,sure, we all love junk food. It tastes good. But if I know it is not good for me, and it will not help me to get to where I want to be, shouldn't I have the willpower to just say NO?? I have done it in the past. Why can't I do it now?

The only thing I can control in this whole wide world is what I eat. And I am the ONLY person who can control what I eat. So, how do I reprogram my brain? What worked in the past....

Tracking. Ah yes. Writing it all down. No matter what. It worked before.

Let's try that. Starting today.

    I too do much better at my weightloss when I track my food! I need to get back in the habit too!

    One day - I think that's the key. You just go through the day. It goes well, or not so well.

    And you wake up and do it all over again the following day. But you don't go back to the old day. It's done.

    You can do this. I know that you can. Don't demand perfection of yourself in one day. Do just one thing and it will steamroll. Track today. The first step back is the toughest. Take care

    I am also trying tracking again. Thought about going to Weight Watchers again just to get steered back in that direction, meet new people & be ACCOUNTABLE weekly. I did so well in the past.

    Mine is portion sizes...

    Good to see a blog from you!
