On a Diet

Saturday, June 01, 2019

I know, I know. It seems like everywhere I turn every article and every expert is saying not to be on a DIET. The word, they say, is bad. Too stressful. Too strict. Just take it easy, just do one little thing. Just lose one pound, make one change.

And this is good advice for getting started, and it is helpful to know that this weight-loss journey is not going to be an overnight one-time fixer upper and then back to the old ways!

But I am floundering in the oblivion of one little thing. Right now, I need to take the plunge. I diet is an eating and exercise plan. I need to be on a diet or I am never going to get off the ground, and right now I am too heavy to get off the ground!

I have been discouraged and stuck for several months. I have made some great changes in exercise and eating healthy foods. But my mood tends to push me to overeat. And then I got the results of my most recent lab work. The numbers for blood sugar are not coming down. What? You think two bowls of cereal at bed time aren't helping? Ack!

So I think it is time to get serious. And for now, that means a diet. And not just for a week. I am not sure for how long, but at least until my numbers move in the right direction.

So: Track every day, journal every day, either here of privately, follow the plan.

Wish me luck!

    Tracking seems to be the key to accountability, therefore to eating mindfully, therefore to weight loss. emoticon
