It is so easy to slip off of the portion control wagon! I have been examining every single thing I put into my mouth. I know it sounds so booooooring! But, remember, I am really motivated to shed more weight and have been stymied because I haven't been able to yet.
So amidst all of the weighing and measuring, last Sunday evening, I found myself snacking on some delicious Fit Bites. I did not count them out or measure by weight, I simply kept reaching into the bag for one more. Then I realized I had completely over eaten and put the bag away. It was a powerful realization and reminder about how easy it is to loose focus! So as much as I enjoyed every morsel that went into my mouth (and I did), there will be no more errant snacking activity for me! It is a reminder that 100 calories a day that is not burned, is, instead, stored as fat and can add up to one pound of weight gain a month!Yikes! I do not want that!
Desire to travel further on my journey to better health. Dedication to myself, because I am worth it. Discipline to REALLY pay attention my intake and nutrition.
