Resolution to Succeed

Well, so far this week I’ve stuck faithfully to following each day’s tasks in The Beck Diet Solution, but I have had a bit of trouble keeping my calories under 1500. There’s no excuses and because I’ve journaled every morsel of food every single day I know where the problem areas are.

Dr. Beck doesn’t even suggest starting a diet until day 15 of her plan, and maybe this is why. I’m not sure. I’m trying [pause] well, can I say “trying” if I’ve not done the work?? ..hhmmm…. anyway, I wanted to see a loss this week, but it may be a maintain again. I wasn’t going to weigh myself until Friday, but I had to peek this morning and it was a straight maintain so far.

Last night I gave myself a big emotional spanking, but decided I have to get back up and keep going. I will learn the lessons and then do my best to make sure they don’t happen again. (This was an incident of waiting to eat with family, which turned out to be 9:00 pm after soccer and back-to-school orientations all evening , and I was so hungry I ate more than my calorie allowance left me for the day. argh…)

Today is a new day and I’m trying not to let my calorie disobediences bother me. I definitely have to just take this one day at a time. So, I leave you with this quote I came across this morning that has me thinking:

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing – Abraham Lincoln

    Waiting too long to eat can really be a recipe for disaster. I call it falling off a cliff, where you just go over the edge and can't seem to get satisfied when you *do* eat.

    Been there.


  2. Once you get used to eating that many calories it will be easier. It's always amazing to me to see how easy it is to eat a few extra hundred calories throughout the day! Way too easy!
