I think our mindset must be strong to want to lose weight.
I find if I don’t believe in myself enough, I won’t ever do it. I have to do this for me. I cannot get my hub or Doberman to do this for me….it must be me. I need to think I can do this….I am on day 4 of being back on track and I feel in my heart that I am headed in the right direction.
I know you are thinking, its only 4 days dumbass…..yes but it is 4 days that I have ate better (no snacking on those new fried green tomato potato chips) and thinking about food. I must think about this to make it happen. I have to make myself…..my eating a priority.
I am preparing my food. I am not going to buy fast food/take out at work if I don’t bring a lunch. I am going to have food with me to avoid that. IF we do go out, no fried, no potatoes, no bread and focus on protein.
There is good and bad fat. I love butter. The real stuff like Julia Child liked. IT is awesome. It is true, a little dab will do ya. I refuse to tell myself any foods are off limits. There are better choices. I would love to have the fries and bread…..I mean really…….BUT I must make the choice. Do I want to fit into my pants again? Be more comfy riding with my hub on our Harley or just get bigger? I know that if I don’t do something, I will be back over 300 again and more.
I must take a hands on positition. I need to live/think food and my desire to do better for my health and my knees. Of course I feel like a failure but I am NOT.
Maybe I just went on vacation……but now I am back.
