It’s not easy

I have not blogged about weight loss in a while.  Don’t worry I have NOT fallen off the wagon I have just had more festive things to blog about lately.  I am happy to report that I was able to maintain during Thanksgiving and since then I have lost a few additional pounds. Now if I can keep away from our frosted sugar Christmas cookies I’ll be doing good. 

Loosing weight is not easy. I have found that it is not only a daily choice but an hourly, and moment by moment choice. Some days the choice to eat healthy options is easier than other days, but it is never easy. Lets face it some days it is a real struggle. I find myself tempted to eat when I am not hungry just because something looks or smells good. I find myself wanting to eat when I am stressed or bored. However, I choose NOT to eat in those times and it is not easy, but necessary. I am having to break habits that have had for 20 years or longer in order to continue to drop the extra pounds. Can I say it again? It is not easy.

The holidays are here and I will eat some yummy things, just as I did during the week of Thanksgiving. However, I will not go overboard I will do it in moderation.

    Good for you for keeping on the wagon. I’m fighting the battle with weight loss too and am so tired of falling off that old wagon! You’re so right, it’s a very tough battle. I am a stress eater and finding other ways to cope with stress difficult to find and do. I almost feel like an alcoholic of a smoker who is trying to quit the habit! So very, very hard!

    Love your blog design too! Have a great day!

    I too feel like the alcoholic or smoker that just can’t quit. I just keep reminding myself that it is an “everyday, every moment thing.” I have lost right at 62 lbs this year, and right now it is harder than ever to keep on the right path.
