Do you guys have perfect or even just good weeks and throw all the work away by overeating on the weekend?
I’ve done that so many, many times. But not this weekend. Oh no, not this weekend. This weekend I will NOT be eating 6000 calories. I will not be binging on any food or eating bar food and pints of ice cream. I will not be ruining all my progress for the week.
But I’m not saying no to anything I like or to what food is available. Yesterday I ate at McDonald’s for lunch and had pizza for dinner. (YIKES) Normally this could have been a disaster. But I ate smaller portions of food and didn’t eat any snacks at all during the day. I still stayed within my calorie range for the day and although my body really doesn’t want these foods in me, it is still happy not to be stuffed full of them like it has been in the past.
Over the last week I’ve definitely picked up on the portion control and moderation when eating food. I’ve struggled with this ALOT. I’m not saying I’m an expert now, but I’ve definitely had a good week for eating just the right amount food I need instead of eating until I’m past full. This is the *key* thing I have need to learn and will need to practice to succeed. So I’m glad that I’ve at least caught on to the idea slighty.
It is all about balance, moderation and consistency. They just said that on the America’s Next Top Model episode I’m watching where they are talking about eating, plus size modeling, and body image. I wouldn’t normally recommend this show for health and fitness advice, but they got it right this time.
BALANCE. MODERATION. CONSISTENCY.
Also… 650 LB Virgin. Have you seen this guy yet? He weighed 620 pounds when he reached out for help and has since lost 410 pounds. A local tv station taped his story and now a documentary of his weight loss, the process of going from “dud” to “stud” is not airing tonight on TLC. You can read about his story and see his Today show interview here. I will definitely watch the show tonight… sounds like an awesome story!
