Start yet again.

Thursday, October 17, 2013

Today I went out and got two hurricane glass holders, one I filled with 100 beads, the other is currently empty, you know where I am going with this. My ultimate goal is 100 lbs lost, but my one year goal is 75 lbs. I am capable of doing this. I know this, it should be easy right. Wrong, I was able to quit smoking knowing that I will just never ever put another cigarette in my mouth, that mentality does not work with food. Coming to grips with this is the hardest part for me. I love food, I love the taste, the smell, the preparation, the time, I am able to admit now that I am obsessed with food, so how do I do this???? I am going to start with my obsession being ok, I will focus on smaller portions and making sure that any bite that goes into my mouth is worth the effort, it will taste divine, it will smell amazing, and I will take my time preparing things I enjoy, if this means a brownie, so be it. But I will encourage others to take them home, or send to work with my sweetheart. I will not be the one eating nearly the whole pan any longer. One taste is going to become enough. I want this and this time I will succeed.

    I also have two glass jars to show my weight loss. I find the visual reminder helps motivate me.

    Yes, make sure that every bite is a "10" in your book. Smaller portions will help as well.

    I gained back the weight I lost three years ago, so I am starting again too. You can do this! You are important, and you know what to do. You are too important to fail! It's your life you are talking about. emoticon

    Glad to see you are not giving up. I had planned on giving up earlier this year. I was resigning myself just to buy bigger and bigger pants. But then I made plans to do something about my weight. I am so glad I did!
