cincei's Journal, 21 September 2013

Omgosh, I went so far off my diet yesterday I can't even face it to record it. Well, I am resolved now to stay the course, I'm so dissapointed in myself. I can not let that happen again. I know it was total emotional eating. I'm not sure of the source (although I could venture a guess) but I have to get a grip and figure out how to channel it in a possitive way. Any suggestions would be most welcome.
Self sabotage sucks big time. Why, Why, Why do we do that to ourselves?! It is the weirdest thing, like dreaming while you're awake. I know exactly what I'm doing and can't seem to redirect that negative behavior. It's so easy to excuse it away.
I was a smoker for 29 years, I quit 2 1/2 years ago with the help of Chantix. I don't even have the slightest urge to smoke anymore. I don't miss it at all. I do however have these dreams once in a while. I dream that I've started smoking again. I wake up so sad and feeling like an utter failure because I gave in. Addiction is addiction, smoking or over-eating or what have you, they all have to be overcome. It's finding the path best suited for you that can be the challenge.

Glad I am not the only one who does that. I find the danger points are when friends come and we go out for a meal. Sometimes its a function where there is no choice, but being honest with self, other times there is a menu and I give in to temptation. Main thing is to shrug it off and apply self to the diet asap after a lapse. When I am at home, I find it easier to stick to my diet. I really dont think I have any good tips. But to have good things in the home to eat that aren't 'off plan' is certainly a help. And charting the weight loss is also an incentive to achieve. I believe that making a note of what you eat is ver illuminating, but sometimes takes a lot of time. Well done for giving up smoking, see? -you have that iron will in there somewhere, just give it a polish and achieve :)
