Last night we had friends over for a cook out. I had an extra 18 points for the day after dinner and drinks, and that's OK but this morning I started repeating my past mistakes. I woke up hungry and started to grab anything. First was 1/2 slice of cold pizza then a brownie. I stopped, knowing that this is not how I am going to make my weekly goal. I decided instead of continuing to eat empty calories I would eat a bowl of fiber one, skim milk and 1/2 cup of blueberries. I feel much better. and satisfied.
Now I have eaten half of my daily points before noon. It will be a difficult day but I am going to stick to my points today- I see many vegetables in my future.
I think that sometimes I am giving up on myself and don't know why. I know that I want to do this and feel great when I eat healthy and do well on plan, but still I cheat. The thing about Cheating is it only hurts me- my goals, my future, my life. I think that it will take many months to always try and keep up my good habits. I am certain I will do this but I must look at everything I ingest as if it is benefiting me and my goals.
I think this is why it is so hard for so many people to achieve weight loss - it is hard and I must do this for me- because I want a healthy body that will be active for a very long time.
I know I am not alone.. so please share your advice on how to stay motivated and continue even when you have had more than you should....
