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!
