Just one day

This struggle to get my eating under control is quite real!!!!   

How is it that I seem to have lost all willpower to control my eating?  But I have!

After my non scale victory and the success in stopping the weight gain, I made a pact with myself.  

Just one day at a time.   I am not promising to eat right for a month or even a week.  I am just trying to do it one day at a time.   I can give up cake for one day.  One little itty bitty day!  Sure I can do that!  What’s one day!

The trick is to remember to make that vow each and every morning!!!!!   When I do....success comes my way!!!

Sometimes taking one small step at a time works. I have done things one hour at a time. I will wait one more hour before a snack. Sometimes it works too. I have a difficult relationship with food too. I think I will have to work hard always. There will never be a finish line for me. I wish I could eat like a normal skinny gal, but I will need to track, measure and count calories for the rest of my life . It is the only thing that works for me. I don’t look backwards. I try to keep going forward.

You can do it! However, now I want cake.

That’s the best way I think. It seems less difficult and the obstacles less insurmountable that way!!!

MaryFran said...

I do that too with the snacks...make myself wait (even a half hour sometimes does the trick)! And like you, there is no end zone to this journey....I fear that food will be a lifetime struggle!!!

Baby steps WILL get us there!!!

Hahaha....we almost always have cake and goodies here (not my request, but since I love to bake, I have no problem fulfilling the request!). Come on over!!!

I'm in the club of "did everything right and still gained". sigh. up 3# in three days.

I am in maintenance mode. I have been at the same weight for straight weeks now! Please don’t tell me at least it hasn’t been a gain because that doesn’t make me feel better. I have gained since this pandemic and I am not happy about that. Hopefully things will change next month. One day at a time.

That is so frustrating!!! Stay the course! You know what you are doing ...keep it ‘all right’ and the weight should eventually drop!!!

I am with you!! I try to tell myself that ‘at least I’m not gaining anymore’ like I did at the beginning of the pandemic, but it is small consolation when I realize how much I have gained since the beginning god this mess!!!
