Today’s Weight: 198.0
- Quit fooling yourself! Yes, that would be me…I’ve fooled myself many times into think that just one bite is okay, or I can lose the weight and still eat anything I want whenever I want. I’ve even fooled myself into believing at times that I can’t lose weight. This was a good wake-up call for me.
- No Choice. To prevent unplanned eating (snacking while cooking or out of boredom, desserts brought to work or a function that I didn’t make room for in my calorie budget, etc.) I need to remind myself that I don’t have a choice in the matter. I will make a set of food rules and then stick to them. Sticking to those rules will help me not have to deal with “Should I or shouldn’t I?” or “Maybe just a small piece..” etc. I will remind myself, “No, this goes against your rules for losing weight, so not today.” and then walk away.
Am I putting these things all into practice already? Kind of. 🙂 I’ll be honest that I am still working on my rules and I haven’t ruled out any foods completely yet, though brownies are sure taking the #1 spot right now. My main rule is to stay within my calorie budget daily and get at least 3-4 days of exercise in a week.
