After work it was so hard not to go buy cookies. I bought fruit instead. I’ve been having those munchy moments where the cravings just get so bad I can hardly stand it. So far my resolve has held. Rather than focusing on how good bad food tastes, I’ve been trying to convince myself how gross it ultimately is, all the crap it does inside the body. It’s a hard sell, but I’m hopeful one day I’ll fully buy into it. It’s amazing how addictive junk food is.
I’ve read that only about 15% of dieters manage to maintain their weight loss. That’s a depressing figure, especially when I consider that I’ve never been able to do it. I’m not sure why I feel this time is different, but I do. Maybe the failures have made me wiser. I know what doesn’t work, and I’m trying a different approach this time. I also know I can’t stand being fat any longer. I have to get to a healthy weight.
