It MUST be different!

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Today starts 3 straight days of "eating events".
Today is a pot luck lunch
Tomorrow is a Christmas luncheon
Friday is a ladies hors d'oeuvres lunch.

I MUST AND WILL pre-think the choices I will make and the quantities I will eat. The MUST AND WILL are because I want to. This time I WANT to stay at goal. I don't want to have "January remorse" and face another winter of trying to get the Christmas pounds off. I have really nice clothes that fit well now. They look nice. I like to get dressed in the morning. I like to go to the closet and have EVERYTHING in there fit me, and not have sizes 18-8 and be wondering what will fit today.
I feel well. I really feel well. I do some sort of exercise every day. I love being able to BOUND up the stairs! I love surprising myself with a glimps of myself in a mirror or window.

So this time, I don't want to give all this good living and happiness up for a piece of pie (or more accurately, the whole pie) or a loaf of fresh bread, or ANY food! I really just want to eat as much as my body NEEDS in a day, feel satisfied and happy.

So, today starts the 3 day marathon, and this morning I am PRE-THINKING AND PRE-PLANNING, so I will create a new history for myself. Dr. Phil always says "The best predictor of the future is the past." I agree, so I'm creating a BRAND NEW past.

    This is such a great news blog Sandi! I love all the motivation and determination that shines right through your words. Congratulations on making the switch from "diet" to "lifestyle" mentality. I really enjoyed reading all your reasons.

Have a wonderful time at your three events. Concentrate on enjoying the reasons you are getting together. People are fabulous when we focus on them.

    You are a brave woman going to all those eating events. I went to a party last week and completely blew it. I am supposed to go to a Christmas dinner at work and I am skipping it. Last night I went to a meeting and there were all kinds of goodies and I can honestly say I only ate one cookie. I did not plan but now I am at the point where I associate all the BAD things about these goodies. I want to have a good December and continue on to January. Thanks for sharing.

Truthfulness

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

Hmmmm, truthfulness, that's a very good topic...especially with regards to weight loss and weight control. I'm thinking that when I am truthful with myself about what I eat, when I eat, and why I eat, THAT'S when the lasting change happens!

  


The healthy choices

Monday, December 10, 2012

It's nice to be making the healthy choices for meals/snacks. It makes all the difference. Guess that's why I'm 2 weeks at goal today, rather than an instant "bounce up" as usually happens the day I reach goal!

shhhhhhhhhhhhh...it's working....

Monday, December 03, 2012

I'm telling this softly...it's working. All the nutritional changes I made to reach my goal, all the portion controlling I implemented to reach my goal, and all the subtle everyday exercises I incorporated into my everyday life to reach my goal...they're all continuing to work to keep me at my goal weight.

I'm here.

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Now that I'm at goal weight, it is so important for me to remember:
a) to leave the foods I cannot say "stop" to alone.
b) to continue exercising
c) how much effort it took to get here
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY
d) how very much I want to stay here.

I will do what it takes...whatever it takes. I will continue to make healthy food choices and appropriate portion choices. I will do what it takes.
