Most people who go on a diet seem to get on really well when they restrict the amount of food they eat, cut out treats and increase exercise. However, as I am not really attempting to "diet" this time round, I am on a life change.
The reason behind this is completely clear - I have dieted and gained weight on a monthly basis for the last 20 years or so I would say.
This time its for life.
The issue is that I "rebel" against myself which makes no sense at all.
When thinking logically I am fully aware that I want to lose weight and to do this I need to eat healthily and not give in to say chocolate when calling for petrol. I plan all this in my head and when prepared this is no problem at all.
My issues of overeating - or more to the point feeling out of control seem to come when I don't have a plan.
No plan happens when:
I am tired.
I haven't eaten enough
or I'm in a raving rush.
As I have a plan currently I will think on these issues for tomorrows post of how to deal with these situations that can trigger a control loss!! This is really really important as once I have lost control once it can much more easily spiral...
Back tomorrow - got to go - I have to practise tinkling on the ivories!!!
