HYC Update – Taking Control

Posted Nov 03 2009 10:00pm

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket As I write this, I really do feel so proud and also so grateful that I am part of this wonderful weight loss blogging community.  A million thanks to everyone who took the time and made the effort to comment on my call for help yesterday.  I got some really great meal ideas and a few tips on how to combat my nighttime munchies.

So these last few days have been tough – I’ve got a nasty cold, I had a terrible reaction (welts and red bumps) to Nair on my upper lip, and I’ve been feeling a bit out of control about the nighttime eating.  I have spent Monday afternoon/evening and will spend most of the day today (Tuesday) taking back control of myself and my eating.

For the past two nights I haven’t eaten in the living room in front of the t.v.  This is something I want to sustain from here on out.  I’m going to use several of your ideas, including the idea of drinking decaf tea (I have several varieties waiting in my cupboard) and closing the kitchen after I clean up the dinner dishes.

Yesterday I watched this video, and I think it captures what I’ve been feeling perfectly.  I think you’ll get something out of it, too, so it should be worth your time to watch it:

My takeaways:

  • Saying one thing and doing another thing – so true, especially at night
  • I’ve got the gym thing down, which makes me so happy.  Check one thing off the list.
  • I want to walk the walk, not just talk the talk.
  • I would love an accountability partner – Scale Warfare, are you up for it?  Anyone else?

(I WILL NOT be shaving my head to prove myself, however ;)

What I will do is prove to myself that I can and will do this.  To “just do it.”  To follow through on all of my plans and make it happen.  To get ‘er done!
