I have been doing so so. 80% of the time I do ok. My problem is that I end up eating something every day that prevents me from losing any weight. Chocolate, chips, brownies or someone asks me to dinner. Something each day. I did manage to stick to the Nutrisystem diet except for that. I have probably eaten more fruit and veggies in the past month than in the past few years.
As far as exercise goes I get in 10,000 steps a day but I have been slacking on the ellipitcal. I have it in my mind that I will eat more or be more hungry if I workout so I don't.
So with all that said, here are my goals for April.
1. No binging
2. Elliptical or treadmill 30 mins a day
3. Stick to the nutrisystem eating plan
4. Take this eating thing moment by moment and not think if it as days
What happens is I have this whole philosophical argument with myself about food. On the one hand I am not hugely overweight and am in good health. So why deprive myself of food? On the other hand I have wanted to lose about 30 lbs for over a year now. So when I get hungry or crave chocolate or have repetitive thoughts about food, I think, is this mental anguish worth it? Sometimes I say yes and sometimes I say no. My goal is to start saying yes more.
The good thing is that I can't eat as much as I use to. So when I do eat breakfast or lunch I am usually full. Teh problem is afternoon and dinner. I get hungry and it's a real hungry in that my blood sugar is low. So by the time I get to eat the food doesn't get into my system quick enough and I am still hungry.
So I haven't lost any weight but eating wise I am making progress but it's slow. I basically do something every day or so to blow it just enough.
Tomorrow is a new day. Persistence.
Thanks for letting me share.
