Trying, hoping, praying
Wednesday, August 11, 2010
I am trying to get back on track-things went off track for a few days but all I can do at this point is take aim at my goals and work to get back on track. I am doing my walking again and trying to make better food choices again-why is food such a comfort????? Can anyone tell me that-does it go back to our childhood when food was used as a reward? I tell myself that there is always another day so I don't have to have it right now and mostly that is working but not always.
I am hoping that others aren't having the struggle that I seem to have-I lose 5-10 pounds and keep that off and then I get off track and gain most of it back and have to lose it again. I have to make better choices and move down another 10 pounds. I only look at things in terms of shorter term goals as I have lost up to 100 lbs before to see it come back, so I am tired of the yo-yo diet and want this to be the last time I ever have to lose this weight.
I am praying that I am able to conquer my love affair with food. I am tweaking the diet and trying to make changes to make things healthier and serving smaller porton. I want to eat to live, not live to eat. Sometimes it feels like I will never master this simple solution to this enduring problem.
