Reminded to challenge myself and revisiting the Siebold 90 days.

Wednesday, January 07, 2015


After I mentioned revisiting my bog, she said she was reviewing the program again. Hey, why not?
I was successful (net loss) last year and perhaps when revisiting I can get another, tighter grip on my issues.

I have watched my control crumble under pressure again.
Since breakfast is routine and lunch is packed 5 days a week....I've got more than half my day covered.

My hand has been on the candy jar at work, although much better than I was in the fall.
The ice cream also came back in the fall.
I had a heart to heart talk with the freezer recently and agreed to keep 80 cal. pops or fruit bars for emergencies but no more bowls of ice cream.
I'm grabbing and not measuring again for dinner and caving in to the quick and easy.

I made a goal, more reasonable than the last time. Being realistic that the weight goal is not what I really need. It's what I want.

What I NEED is to learn to control my emotions, not channel them through food and keep them in check for good!

    Hmmmm... that grabbing and not measuring is a downfall of mine as well. Back on track with Steve - emoticon

    Best wishes on your journey. My issues sound a lot like yours. I read Seibold last year and learned from him. I prefer his ebook over the videos but plan to include both again sometime soon. Channeling emotions is a lot harder than dieting or consistently eating healthy. I have done both for considerable time with great success but that emotional eating thing has not been cured. Keep up your efforts...searching and practicing. Keep Sparking! emoticon

    I am going to have such fun following along... but since I'm not done with Beck, not ready to take on Siebold just now... one book or project at the time. But as I was commenting to Ellen yesterday, they all are preaching from the same page: be tough not moderate (Berkeley), NO CHOICE (Beck), or Siebold! It's all good. We're worth it!

    Good job recognizing NEED... need to take care of yourself. Number on the scale is a side effect, not a goal. emoticon

    Hey, terrific!! I'm amazed at how much I'm enjoying Siebold x 4 (I think). Somehow I'm seeing less "in your face" from him. He really really cares about this stuff -- and not just for weight loss!!
