Saturday, February 24, 2018      3 comments

The last 7 days have been a shift from my usual. Something "clicked" on last Sunday after I decided to choose a healthy breakfast while out to eat with my husband. Each time I ate a little better it got easier to make better choices. Now I am on... Read more

Today was the first day I have felt in control of my eating in a long time. It all started with a healthy choice at breakfast. It wasn't perfect but it was much better than usual. My husband then wanted to show me a trail and we went for a short... Read more

Sunday, February 04, 2018      6 comments

I know "how to" lose this weight. I have done it before. Why haven't I been able to lose the weight then? The missing component is not desire or knowledge but action. I have to stop making excuses. I have to let go of the disappointment and move... Read more

Sunday, March 26, 2017      7 comments

Eating decisions shouldn't come from my thoughts, but rather from my physical signs of hunger. I am reviewing my favorite cognitive behavior book: The Beck Diet Solution. Every time I read it, I think why didn't I stick with this. I guess ... Read more

January is usually a hard month for me. I don't know exactly why but I always felt it was the pressure of January. Everyone going gung-ho on exercise and eating. I didn't feel like I could meet those expectations. This year I had some major peer... Read more
