Enough is enough- Again!

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

I have said it before and yet, I will keep saying it until I get the hang of it I guess because I am just NOT giving up! I have had enough of this roller coaster that I am on- that I knowingly put myself on! I do so good for a while, then I just go through these periods where I just give in and let my guard down along with all my will power. I am so tired of continually losing, gaining, losing, and gaining the same 5-6 pounds over and over. I am SO tired of it being completely in my hands and not taking control to make it stop! I am SO OVER IT!!!!

I start every day out excellent- I eat a great breakfast, lunch, snacks, everything going as planned, but when it comes time for dinner, I just get fed up and feel like I should be able to eat what I want. Then I don't stop and it is one terrible snack after another until I am just horrified with myself and commit that "tomorrow" I will do better. Then "tomorrow it is the same exact thing all over again. Arrrgggh!! Enough is enough!!

Yesterday was a successful day for my calories and I am very excited to keep it going, I am determined to take my strength back- to put my mind and myself over my weaknesses. Tonight I am taking several kids to the movie and I have committed to buying myself only water. I did this once last month and I lived through it, so I am sure I can do it again. It really is just a matter of will! And I WILL!!

I plan for today to be another great day and I am determined that it will be and that I will get rid of that rebounding 5-6 pounds for good and keep on moving so that I can finally make my way to one-derland! I can't wait, and I can't do it unless I let myself be a winner! Time to take the bull by the horns and remember what I really want is the long term satisfaction of success, not short term gratification that leaves me feeling guilty and weak! I am STRONG and I WILL SUCCEED!

    I hear you! I've been doing the same thing. Going to the movies with kids is tough. However, think about what you want... if you need a treat bring one from home in your purse and plan for it. You CAN do this. I often don't eat or drink anything while watching a movie anymore. It actually makes it easier to get into the movie and out of my head.

    You are worth the extra effort and can do this. Each time you get up again you are reinforcing that you want this, sometimes it takes a while for the body to understand that this time you are committed to healthy living, not just dieting.

    Good luck!

    I have the same problem with night time eating. It's so hard. It seems that's when the boredom/emotional eating starts because I finally have time to think! Things will get better. YOU CAN DO IT!
