When I started this blog I anticipated writing some (see description of blog at right) about overweight and diets, and wrote about my weight (in my profile) “(and determined to change that!)”. Well, I have written almost zilch on the topic, and it seems that my determination was rather weak. My husband thinks I should just give up and resign myself that that is how I will stay. Well, I disagree. I am not willing to give up hope in this area.
For the last several days I have not been feeling 100%, having come down with the flue, and as a result have been eating very little in order to avoid flue symptoms. Suddenly I was easily able to overcome my urge to overeat. HOW? Because I had a priority that overrode the urge to eat. I think that the key must be to find that key that daily I can use to say and believe and remember: “it’s not worth it”. (Plus again, to reduce temptations and things that trigger them.)
The good thing is that as a result of my flue, I am sure my stomach has shrunk this last week (I was eating very little). So I decided that now is the time to catch the moment. To take this as an opportunity to try again. And why not try? I have nothing to lose by trying (besides- grin- a hefty number of kilos).
