My best intentions not enough

Sunday, March 20, 2016

I made up my mind that I don't want to be fat, I envision myself loosing all this extra weight that is bothering me. I go to bed every night thinking about how good I'm going to be the next day, eat healthy, work out and feel energetic. All good intentions every single day and night but the more I think about it the more I become obsessed with food and fantasize about what I want to have for my next meal. Like the more I tell myself I'm going to have brown rice and vegetables the more I dream of something really caloric like a big steak and potatoes. Supposedly if you say something it looses its power over you. Well this is what's going on and I want it to stop! Anytime something doesn't go my way I immediately want to eat until I'm numb, that has to STOP TOO! I obviously don't have it all figured out, but I am learning every day seeing what works and doesn't. Obsessing over loosing weight immediately is not working, I think it's actually making stay stagnant and even gain. My best approach is going to be healthy tendencies and staying full with good food to avoid overeating, having anything I want but controlling portions. Gonna keep trying. I will succeed eventually.

    emoticon just stay focused on one goal at a time...sometimes I get overwhelmed if I try to change too much all at once...

    i hear exactly what you are saying .. i spent the last year trying to stay within parameters of the nutrient ranges I should be eating instead of worrying about the calorie range and stopped worrying about the scale. I stocked the fridge with veg that I grab whenever the urge strikes to eat something so I am never hungry. work YOUR program because nothing works for everyone

    It's not an easy road to follow but this introspection will pay off . Keep blogging, keep trying to find out how to get control, and don't best yourself up. It took years to gain it, so be patient and it will get easier.

    The most important thing is you have to figure out why you numb yourself with food. Why is it that you avoid feeling the feelings. Once you address these issues, your journey as such a better chance of being successful. Best wishes my friend!

    What if you look more shorter term for now? My goal is to lose 60 pounds but that seems so astronomical at this point. Small goals like drinking more water, working in more veggies, or focusing on 5lbs at a time are more attainable.
