Eliminating Excuses

Eliminating Excuses – January 1
It’s January first and many people are launching new diets on this day—reforming from the holidays and starting anew.
I don’t diet anymore but I do adhere (part of the time) to the Weight Watcher eating program. I am a life time member and believe that it has been a healthy program that works for me whether I want to maintain where I am or whether I want to shed a few pounds.
Today I weighed 5.5 pounds less than I did last January first, and that was intentional. Through the year I recognize that three lines of excuses broke out most of the time when I went off the program.
The first excuse: I’ve already broken with the program today so I’ll just stay off until tomorrow and then I can start fresh! That means I’m allowing myself for the rest of that day to eat anything I want!!!
The second excuse: I have to get this out of the house completely before I can go back to the program. After Christmas I happened to have three individual containers of pecan pie. So I said to myself—I’ll eat one today. Believe me, pecan pie blows any program! Then the next day there are still two containers of pecan pie. Well, I’ll just eat them both which totally, totally blows that day but then at least the pecan pie is gone!
The third excuse: I’m not really hungry—I just need to eat something, want to eat something, am going to eat something. And in that space of time that I am saying that to myself, I do not want to take a walk. I want to eat.
It’s January first and luckily it is a wonderful day to begin again.
