I lost ten pounds last year and regained it ALL during November and December. So depressing! It's so hard for me to eat well consistently, because I LOVE sweets. I can lose weight eating one piece of chocolate a day, but I can't just stop with one; I have to have four or five.
It's a spiritual problem of lack of self-control. I want to eat what's bad for me, because I like it. Green beans just don't have the same appeal as dessert for me. I like most vegetables and fruit, but I LOVE dessert!
So, I'm really making it a matter of prayer plus using whatever other help I can get from other sources like the badge at right called Discretionary Food Challenge. I found it on a blog called ChileChews, and after reading her post about it, I think it'll help me be more mindful about what goes into my body through my mouth.
I'm exercising an hour a day already. I'm not going to do more than that, so I'm going to have to be much more dilligent about what I eat. It doesn't help any when my husband comes home with a case of chocolate covered pecans! I've about made myself sick of them I've eaten so many. So maybe they won't be a temptation any more. I'll keep you posted...
