Things Are Going Better...

Today was better.  I'm still not quite where I want to be.  But, I'm not stressing about it anymore.  That just made things worse.  I did eat better today.  I am just still so hungry.  But, I've increased my exercise.  So, that's good.  I'm struggling with cooking for my family.  I tend to want to eat more if there is a big meal.  My husband wants big meals.  I do better when meals consist of small amounts with light ingredients.  So, I need to be able to control myself when I cook big meals.  I'm not trying to blame anyone or anything for my lack of self control.  It's all my fault.  I should be able to control my appetite no matter what size the meal is. 

I want to say a big THANKS to all who commented on my last post.  Your encouragement was needed and appreciated.  It's good to know that I am not alone in my struggles.  I'm putting one foot in front of the other and trudging forward.  No matter how rocky the road ahead is.   I am committed to losing this weight.  I know I would feel so much better.   Not to mention how much better I would look.  That is just an added bonus.  

So, here's to tomorrow...may we all have great days full of good choices.

Hey Shae, I know what you mean about the meal frustration thing. For me it's having a husband who likes southern cooked food which basically means swimming in grease and sodium. lol. I myself like big meals but it can kill a diet, so what I've been trying to do is bulk it up with veggies. If I have a meat, then I usually make some knd of steamed veggie mix, then a salad and add a piece of whole grain bread w/ it. That's a pretty big meal by the time you get done and the veggies are easy to cook. Also, the more we bulk up in veggies, the more color is added to our dinner which of course means more that's a plus. Of course, whether hubby will eat veggies is another issue huh? least in my household anyway. And yes, here's to good choices. :) Have a great day tomorrow Shae. :)

It's going to be a great one ! Even though mine will just be spent in the grocery store and chopping a mountain of veggies, it is the foundation for my week and doing this makes the rest easier - so it is a great thing !
