July Challenge Check-in/Day 18 - Last Chance Workout

Okay, I have to admit I'm not happy right now! I just stepped off the scale. With all the exercising I've been doing, you would think I've lost some weight. Nada! I know it's my food intake. Although I am making healthy choices (sans the trip to Dairy Queen), I need to focus on portion control.

The truth is I resent the whole measuring and counting thing. I have a HUGE mental hang up about it. I judge myself as a pathetic loser with no self control. Unlike a number of individuals I've encountered on my weight loss journey, I have not been on a lot of diets. The only diet I've tried is Medifast. I had much success on Medifast. I tried it for a month and lost 25 pounds.

Anyhow, I do not want to diet! I really want to learn to simply make healthy choices and watch my portions. I know I am capable of doing so. I just need to do it on a more consistent basis until it becomes habit. This is why, intellectually, I know I need to find a healthy eating plan and stick with it.

I decided last night that this is going to be my challenge next month. I'm going to find some diet or healthy eating plan to follow.

  1. I just had to comment to say, I hear you on the HUGE mental hang up and resentment. I call that my feeling sorry for myself syndrome and wow, I'm good at that. I agree - do not diet. Make healthy choices, watch your portions (big one for me too). You can do it!
