Renewing My Commitment to Myself to Become Healthy

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

That sentence "renewing my commitment" made me stop and think. I've asked myself "have I truly made a commitment to become healthy?" I've started and stopped so many times, losing the same pounds over and over. When will it stop for good? Let's get real--it will ONLY stop when I stop it. ONLY I can stop the madness! Why?

WHY, can only I stop the madness:

#1 I control what type of food that comes into this house
I do the meal planning
I make out the shopping list, with coupons
I do the grocery shopping
I do most of the cooking
I eat what is fixed
If eating out, its mostly what I like

I control what comes into the house. I control what goes into my mouth. What does this mean? It means I have to take control, take control of my actions. I have to do better planning. I have the tools to do so, I just have to learn to use them better.

I feel this is my job, just like my DH goes to his job everyday and does the best he can, I need to do the best I can.

Today, Tuesday, January 8, 2014 I'm renewing my commitment to my goal of healthy eating and exercise. emoticon

    Good truthful analysis - we all have to find our stumbling points and if it's the food we keep bringing in to the house, we have to change that. If it's where we choose to go out to eat, maybe we need to change locations for a healthier menu. If it is our own thought process, we have to change. One thing about working on weightloss (for many years) has taught me is that it is changing our life long bad habits and replacing them with healthy ones, and then sticking with them. Sticking with the good habits is the REALLY hard part - lol!

    You sound a lot like me! emoticon It is up to us to control this aspect of our lives. We are the ones that decide what we eat - no one else.

    I seem to be repeating the same things too - losing the same few pounds over and over; giving in to the same food cravings over and over; giving up on myself over and over.
    But today I am resisting the things that aren't good for me and yesterday I stayed on track with resisting those same things, and tomorrow I plan to do it again. I will work on repeating what is good for me over and over and perhaps that will replace the other more negative things. :)

    We know what to do!
    We have the tools/foods we need!
    We have plenty of support!
