As usual, I am off to a good start. I stopped one bad habit..... late night snacking,,,,, and it has made a BIG difference in my life. Breaking habits are so difficult to do. I eat when I am tired ,,, instead of going to sleep, I eat something with sugar,,,, which then makes me want more sugar. I was having at least 6 "snacks" every night after dinner,,,, but this week I stopped it and lost 6 pounds! Wow ,, that is eye opening.
Don't get me wrong,,, I still want those delicious potato chips,,,, you know the ones,,, vinegar and salt,,, or popcorn with extra butter,,,, or that piece of cheesecake at 10 pm.... then that would not be enough,,,, I would then eat some cheese. Well,,, good by to those old habits. The good thing is that my 16 year old daughter is following my lead and is not snacking with mom at midnight anymore.
I want to continue in this quest to find a healthier me,,,, but sometimes I feel like it is overwhelming....... So I asked myself a series of questions:
Did I really gain all the weight back? Yes
Do I really want to continue on this journey again? Yes
Do I know what to do to reach my goals? Mostly Yes,,, but I know I need to read some Sparks articles to further help me in my quest
Am I really committed to losing weight? Yes
So off I go.......... into week 2 .......... send me your good wishes and good thoughts.... I will need them
