Overcoming Obesity

Oops, I did it again

So yesterday was a relatively slow day. Did a few errands but not much. For the most part, I the day slipped away and I was on a Brothers and Sisters Marathon. I got Season 1 & 2 for Christmas, now that I only have one episode left... I just don't know what I will do with my time. Hopefully, this will encourage me to get off of my derrière and out into the world!

I managed to eat a whole sleeve of Keeblers Townhouse Club Crackers, a Chicken Salad Sandwich, A Chicken Sandwich & Two Tacos from Jack-n-Box (didn't I just eat there like less than 48 hours ago... trend maybe?), a bag of popcorn at Target, okay okay, to be honest, I ate two sleeves of keeblers townhouse crackers. And I woke up at about 1:30 am and for some reason decided I should eat a PB&J Sandwich, so good but I ate it as I was laying in bed, I forced myself to stay awake to finish my sandwich. Eating while sleeping is the worse thing you could do and honestly, I do it almost every night. I can go an entire day without eating a bite but when the sun goes down and the moon comes out, especially after 10pm, man I begin to eat and eat... if I don't eat something before bed, I will wake up in the middle of the night and eat. Usually, if I wake to go to the restroom, I will also go to the kitchen and find something to eat. Why do I do that? It's like it is such a habit, my body wants it midnight meal. Gotta break that cycle but I know it will be one of my hardest challenges, Ive been doing it for years and it has gotten worse over the last few months.

I found some old magazines, People's Half their Size addition from about 3 years ago and Biggest Loser Season 7 Jump-start Guide... I flipped threw them. As I read the articles, I am just looking for the one sentence that just jumps out to me and tells me how I can overcome this issue with food. It's never there, it's not a magic word, willpower... it truly is a life style change. What I realized is that I constantly say "I will try it, it might work" HELLO, can we say pitfall! I did not become 330 pounds over night and I won't lose it overnight but I must commit to myself, no more of this trying out stuff.

A few friends of mine are supposed to start a diet... ewwww, not that word again, on Monday. The game plan is to weigh in monthly for the next three months. We will track what everyone has lost and for example, is Sally lost 10 lbs, Jane lost 4 lbs and Sue lost 7 lbs the first month, well.... Jane would need to put in $6 and Sue would be in $3, to make the difference from what Sally (who lost the most weight) lost. At the end of three months, the person who loses the most, wins the loot!

I have not decided exactly what plan or regimen I plan on following yet... but trust me, I am not a procrastinator... LOL... there is no way to get struck by lightning here is it? My Mom has decided to go Vegan for 60 days, a friend of my is using Diet Pills, I on the other hand... have no clue. I can go through all my diet plans I have bought over the years, and yes... there is plenty, cookbooks, workout DVDs, Diet plans, Exercise Plans... so many to choose from.

I will think about it today and follow up...
