Monday...again.

Monday, January 28, 2013

Honesty.

Honesty.

Honesty.

I used to think perhaps determination was most important, or tenacity, or some magical food mix/additive, or fibre, etc. But now I believe honesty with self is the single most important key to successful maintenance. It's Monday. Before, Monday would have brought with it feelings of worthlessness, anxiety, sadness b/c I'd be up 4 - 6 pounds over the weekend. But not now. Why not I asked myself? Because of honesty with myself. What do I really want? How much do I really eat? Did I make healthy food choices? Did I control my portions? How much do I really exercise? Yep, honesty with myself...no trickery, no sneakiness, no deprivation...just honesty.

    Honesty is necessary as it forces you to be accountable for your choices. Hope this Monday goes well for you.

Yep, this time is definitely different than ever before...I'm going down again, and I DID NOT overeat at dinner tonight, even though I cooked for company...

Yay!

Constant vigilance

Sunday, January 13, 2013

The only way to stay on this path is constant vigilance. A planned baked potato is one thing, a handful of chocolate chips is something TOTALLY different. It's like me thinking I could have ONE cigarette after I quit smoking. WAS I CRAZY??? Yes, crazy with addiction, which leads to lack of honesty with self, and an abandonment of common sense.

No one will know.
I can have just one.
I've done so well, I've come sooooo far, I deserve it.

These 3 statements along with many others reflect my lack of honesty. I used to consider myself an honest person...I don't take things that don't belong to me, etc. but this year, I am dissecting MY honesty with MYSELF. I've just had an epiphany that this is truly a different ballgame. This is MY year. My year to maintain. My year to be happy. My year to be grateful. My year to consider all my honesty.

The baked potato

Friday, January 11, 2013

It's been over a year since I had a baked potato. I ate a whole one for supper last night, along with butter and sour cream...I couldn't stop at 1/4...I couldn't stop at 1/2...I couldn't even leave one bite on my plate.

That's the addiction.

Now today I won't eat a potato at all, and not tomorrow, and not the next day and not for probalby another year, or maybe never at all....only time will tell. But one thing is for sure, even though that potato had a grip on me last night, it's got no residual power today.

    Good for you. I hope you enjoyed your treat. I love your positive attitude about today being a new day. I have not had a potato in a year or two.
