Small changes.

Friday, November 30, 2012

Well, as you know I'm starting over. AGAIN. How many times since I've started? I've lost count. Anyway....I'm still here and I'll continue to fight this fight until it's won if it takes the rest of my life!

Small steps for me today:

1) Drink water instead of soda.
2) Swap mustard for ketchup. Miracle Whip for mayo. Sugar-free ice cream for 1/2 fat ice cream. Organic fruit spread for jelly.
3) No butter on my emoticon. I'm going to FINALLY see Twilight today and somehow I've gone from a kids popcorn with no butter back to the large combo meal with butter and Coke!
4) I bought a large bag of apples so tonight while I eat in bed while reading my book, that's what I'll be munching on.

This morning I'll be wrapping holiday gifts. That will keep me busy for a time. Busy hands have no time to do any mindless eating.

Have a wonderful day.

    I think of it less as "starting over" and more like "cleaning up". I am in the midst of a major master closet clean-out. Over time, random and unnecessary items accumulated and so I have to sort through and donate or toss various things, to pare down to a reasonable amount. Same with weight and food habits - over time, I reaccumulated some unhealthy, self-destructive habits so I have to go through and sort them out and toss some (don't worry - I won't donate any of my bad habits). It's an on-going process requiring daily maintenance or it piles up quickly, right? I worked so hard to stop the "eating in bed" nonsense that when I started doing that again, I was kind of shocked at myself for being so foolish. I can't even eat something "innocent" like apples in bed, because it just makes me crave other food so, for me, I just can't eat anything at all at night and pretty soon, it isn't so uncomfortable to not eat at night. Have a lovely weekend, Miss Hattie emoticon
