I keep reading that the key to success is setting habits. Just as bad habits took time, so, then will good habits. So each fay I try to make good habits a part of my routine: Eating good foods in moderate quantities. Meditating. Journaling. And I realize that so much of it has to do with becoming and remaining aware of what I am doing, and holding myself accountable for it. These are small steps, but if I keep at it, perhaps that is what will make the difference.
I keep having headaches, and I keep feeling cranky. Yesterday, I almost ate a doughnut (or three), thinking it would "help." Help the headache. Help the crankiness. Help this feeling that I cannot, will not lose the weight, so why bother, why try? I ate a JC cupcake instead, and waited for the feelings to subside. I never did order the doughnuts.
