Take it one choice at a time, be honest and have faith in you plan.
That was the way I used to sign almost every email I responded to. It was my canned weight loss advice and yesterday I needed to listen to myself.
I had a great day but overall I picked a little too much, finishing the toddler’s ice cream here, snacking at the movies there. So when it came to the end of the day I didn’t really want to face my food journal. I just figured I used all if not more of my weekly points and I was about to “throw away” the week.
Taking my own advice I decided to be honest with myself and face it. Guess what? It wasn’t as bad as I thought. Yeah I, snacked and made some overall unhealthy choices but the day was far from the disaster I thought it was.
- Taking it one choice at a time
- Last night I made the choice to enjoy some treats. This morning is a new choice and I chose a banana on the way to step class and I’m about to choose to make a healthy snack.
- Being honest with myself
- I jotted down every little bit and faced everything that I put in my mouth. Nothing was an unconscious munch.
- Having faith in my plan
- I choose Weight Watchers Flex and I trust in the point system to help me. It’s taught me a lot about balance and today I will even out my week by accounting for yesterdays indulgences. That’s the beauty of this lifestyle.
Ahhhh I feel better now. I’ll be back with my last day in this food journal week later tonight.
