Gateway Drug, and a Simple Question
Wednesday, August 15, 2007
Well, I actually started out fairly well in the month of August. But if I go the tinest little bit off program, then I get way off track and it takes forever for me to start eating good again.
It's especially frustrating when I engage in behaviors that I KNOW are going to throw me off track. Like drinking soda. I keep trying to convince myself that it's ok to drink, because I drink diet, and caffeine free. When I KNOW that it's like a total gateway drug. When I drink soda, I tend to eat more in general, and I tend to eat nothing but junk!
I don't have any big solution to my problem. I can do nothing except keep on trying, and hope eventually that my good days will outweigh my bad days. For today, I intend to keep myself on track as much as possible, by asking myself a simple question everytime I put something in my mouth:
Why am I eating this?
If the answer is anything other than: Because I'm hungry OR "Because I need the nutrients", then I need to re-evaluate.
It's worth a try anyway. I am up to my fatest, post the initial weightloss. And this is with continuing to burn 3500+ calories a week!
