Are you interested in losing weight, or are you committed to lose weight? That’s a good question. Makes you think, huh?
In the past, I’ve talked about losing weight countless times. I’ve tried different methods to get there. But I haven’t followed through. I hit a bump in the road and take two (or more) steps back. It may start off as an interest, yes, but if I really want to see results – I have to be committed.
I’m going to stick with it, NO MATTER WHAT. Quitting isn’t an option.
100 DAYS OF WEIGHT LOSS, DAY 2
Eating is what I struggle with. That little switch in your brain that tells you when to stop stuffing yourself? It’s broken. I still don’t understand how my husband can literally have one bite of a cookie and set it down, leaving the rest for later. I will eat that cookie and 4 more, if they’re sitting in front of me. Sometimes I don’t even realize I’ve eaten the whole package until there’s nothing left but crumbs. And then I feel awful, which makes me want to reach for something else to eat to numb that guilty feeling.
Today was a busy day, and though I didn’t get any formal exercise in, I think I ate pretty well. I thought carefully about every bite of food that went into my mouth, and made sure I was eating for the right reasons, no matter what. I know that even if I make the wrong choices, I will get right back on track, no matter what. I *refuse* to quit, no matter what!
So the difference between being interested and being committed is that when you’re committed you stick with it, NO MATTER WHAT. I am committed to losing weight, not just interested in it. I will stick with the program no matter what daily challenges I’m confronted with.
Yes, I’m a broken record, but I need to adopt this “no matter what” attitude to convince myself that I can stick with my goals regardless of my daily challenges.
- Exercise: Nothing. Still figuring this part out.
- Steps: 4782. Not as much as I’d like, but better than yesterday!
- Craving: Movie theater popcorn. I bought a medium and split it between the four of us, no extra butter. And water to drink.
- Book: No time to read today. But we did go see The Book of Life. Wonderful movie, and especially meaningful to see it on Day of the Dead!
