It's good to remind ourselves that we do have choices when it comes to losing weight.

As most weekends, my eating was out of control. I ate whatever I wanted and kept telling myself that Monday will be a new start. So as you can imagine, I was not a happy camper when I woke up this morning knowing that I would have to give up my creamy oatmeal with 2% milk for eggs (I need to cut down on carbs).

For two or three hours I was miserable thinking that I had nothing (food related) to look forward to today and days to come. I was feeling sorry for myself, thinking that life is so unfair...why do I have to give up the food I love and feel hunger in order to lose weight!

Thankfully, I realized that I have choices. I can eat whatever I want and go on looking and feeling not as well as I could. I could go on with my plan but continue feeling sorry for myself. Or, I can change my attitude and do the right thing. Just knowing that I have choices makes me feel better.

Here's looking forward to a great week with a positive attitude!

    Did you hijack my brain?!?! I swear I've had this same moment too many times to count!
    I think you're on to something with just knowing what you need to do. Keep pushing to make the right choices and I will take my own advice!

    Thank you for sharing from the heart quite honestly ...... sometimes we have to 'give up' things we enjoy or love ....... as I have too ..........but as you do not give up, it is amazing to see how many wonderful and enjoyable things there are to replace those things that may not be as beneficial.
    ( I do know lots of folks who eat oatmeal every morning, and wonder if it is just cutting down on the portion? .... or to milk instead of something high in calories? ........ Best wishes to you for success. emoticon
