This is what I'm doing right now after much revising, refocusing, and re-strategizing...
A long time ago... Well not that long. 5 years ago. I borrowed a manual from the hospital's library called "A Lifetime of Weight Control & Fitness" by Debra Waterhouse. It presented a behaviour modification program towards weight loss. It said that the program should take about half a year to complete. I got to the part where it asked me to track what, how, where, and when I ate and I lost it. It was so tedious for me. I dropped the program after a week. Looking back now I think I made it more tedious then it really was. I was too concern with being accurate and perfect. Well 5 years and two kids later, I've learned my lesson. Now I think I'm ready to revisit the program. (Good thing I decided to copy and keep the manual). So far, I've recorded for one week. The manual suggested that I do this a minimum of two weeks. Although I have accomplished so much so far, I'm starting to forget to record, and not so long ago my focus was so strong that I was recording while I was eating. Now I'm lucky that 3 meals have not pass until I finally get my act together. By then I'm struggling to remember the details. Well I only have one more week to go. Then I can analyze myself and figure out what I need to work on.
Above are pictures of typical meals I eat. From top to bottom: breakfast, lunch, and dinner
I fear no one’s opinion! I am knowledgeable, focused, and efficient. I make this priority and build from experience. I do this for my children and myself. Supported by love, I will persevere.
