SG Blog 2: My Challenges
Friday, January 10, 2014
My challenge starts with balance.
I tend to be all or nothing. That makes for times of great progress, and great undoing!
I cook a lot with a family of 6.
There are lunches to be made, after school snacks and dinner almost every night- all made by me!
I do not have much self control- so I do a lot of biting and sampling!!
I also stay home. You can't stop working to have a bowl of ice cream at 2:00 in the afternoon- but I can! I need more self control!
Throw in hypothyroid and starting menopause, and you can see why the pounds can add uop quickly.
What helps me:
A Plan! What to eat, how much and when. I am good at following rules- it is when I "freestyle it" that I get in trouble!
Support- I need people around me who know that this is not a game or about losing 10 pounds- this is about getting myself back- and it is really important to me.
Activity- I am much better when I have a schedule to stick to. I like the freedom of doing what I like, but I am working on being more rigid with my days so I do not veer off track.
