This is the kind of day where I almost give up. It wouldn't be the first time. I have given up on my diets year after year. I know I am supposed to change my attitude and call it a "lifestyle change" but I am not fooling myself. I am trying to lose weight and I call that a diet.
I have succeeded and failed many times in my dieting career. In my adult life the most successful diet I ever did was the Atkins Diet (please don't judge me for joining that craze). That is when I got to my lowest weight as an adult. Someday I will blog about that fabulous bacon and cheese diet, but for now, just know that it worked. Then I went back to college and feasted on Jack in the Box at three in the morning and the delicious creations of the catering department I worked for.
Everytime I try to lose weight I give up. I start off well and then I don't stick with it. I fall back into bad habits and I make excuses for myself. Once again I had a weekend full of high fat and high calorie foods and it seems so much easier to say that this is how my body is meant to be. But I don't want it to be like this for the rest of my life. I don't want to go back to old habits and I don't want to have any excuses.
So I got up this morning and cut up vegetables for snacking. I had my banana and coffee for breakfast. I decided, AGAIN, to recommit myself, AGAIN. Every moment is a choice. Every moment is my decision.
Small goals for this week that will help:
1. No alcohol
2. No desserts
Cheers to a good week, for me and for you!
