Too Much Good Food

R.a.n.t. of week 06/01/08
I have done so well in my weight loss so far, but as I'm getting closer to my goal weight, the harder it's becoming. There was a time during this process where various foods were not a temptation for me. Now, I seem to be hungry for snacks all the time. That may not be as much of a problem as the fact that it's been getting harder and harder for me to get inspired to go work out at the gym. I know where this can lead, and I certainly don't want it to lead to that end. I really need to stay away from cookies, brownies, muffins and cinnamon rolls. It's just at times I seriously get an uncontrollable urge for them. I get a chocolate attack, a box of cereal starts calling out to me, or I start craving chips. Ignoring the fact if I worked out I'd be less prone to eating this junk, I need to recall all the good (healthy) food there is to eat that I do like; yoghurt, steamed brussel sprouts, oatmeal, fresh fruit, lean meat, or other various foods which end up filling me up and satisfying. Who needs that bag of sugar coated bag of dried fruit and nuts when there is just too much good food.


  1. Yes, I have found the same thing! When I had a 'long way' to go, I was focused and didn't have any problem resisting. When I got close to my goal I found myself wanting to eat more and more of things that I know won't make me feel good or help me reach my goal. How have you dealt with this? I have to keep telling myself 'if I don't put it in my mouth, I don't have to work it off!"

  2. I was bad for a while, but I'm getting back on track. Especially this month. I've got a total of 50 pounds lost and I want to keep it off, and more importantly lose more.

    So I keep trying to motivate myself.
    Now that I think of it, this probably would have been a good article for my other blog.
