Positively

Monday, January 07, 2019

I’ve come back after years of up and down dieting. I’m an emotional eater and 2018 absolutely kicked my butt. I stepped on the scale yesterday and am back to where I was years ago with about 175 lbs to lose. That large a number would have derailed me immediately before. I know how to eat, exercise to lose weight. I’ve done it so many times that I’ve lost track. And I’ve always gained it back. Always... So why is this time different? It’s different because I now realize I’m not on a diet. I don’t have to limit myself so severely to lose weight. Thin people eat all types of food. I’ve watched. Yes, some have the blessing of a super fast metabolism. But most just understand moderation. Instead of limiting myself to salads and very low calorie restrictions, I’m going to live each day for that day. Even hour by hour if I have to. I won’t let one ‘bad’ meal derail me for weeks at a time. I will continue to move forward and focus on healthy foods and cooking at home more often.
