Well…I do weigh more… about 10 lbs more!!!
It started innocently enough. I had control over my eating for several months. I wasn’t losing weight at a fast rate…but I also wasn’t gaining weight either.
Then the eating season arrived. For me, that is the period starting on Thanksgiving Day and ending Christmas Day evening.
For me, that is the period starting on Thanksgiving Day and ending Christmas Day evening.
and I reasoned…what the heck, I’ll just have a taste. I was successful with that approach. The next day, the same occurrence… I thought I’d just try what I considered to be the BEST treat.
I did, then the Sugar Monster, that had been dormant, reared its head and came back to life. It kept asking for more sugar. My brain started to rationalize (telling me ‘rational-lies’) that I can eat some more and then I can just get back on my diet after the holidays. My addiction, my obsession, with food and thinking about food became a constant companion.
So, here it is the day after Christmas and I have weight to lose.
My old way of thinking about dieting started to surface. The feelings of helpless, hopeless and being overwhelmed that usually accompany dieting were back. THANKFULLY, I recognized what was happening!!
I thought about all I had learned when I successfully dieted. How I had made the conscious decision to make dieting easy. I reviewed my plan and began telling myself that I had not fallen off the wagon! that I AM THE WAGON…sure, stuck in the mud at the moment…but I will absolutely do what is necessary (review my well thought out blueprint) and take control of this situation.
So let’s do this together…I’m not waiting until January 1, 2017, to regain control! I’m doing it NOW!! Time to get PO’d at the Sugar Monster and say, “Enough is enough!!” Pick a diet plan that you’ve had success with in the past (for me that’s Atkin’s) and get started!
Here is to weighing less on Jan 1, 2017, than you do today…Cheers!
