I had to take a beat and pause so I could be more present for decision making today. Whether it was being very hungry and snacking on veggies instead of popcorn, or getting up when the alarm went off so I could get some activity, or even just reflecting on my WW Recovery Checklist – it all comes down to my resolve for weight loss success.
Having the self-control to think things through is an important step in a weight loss journey. I am thinking of it like this, it’s not that I’m saying “No” to tempting foods, it’s that I’m asking myself to consider the impact of my choices. Or, if I find myself in the kitchen, I’m making it a point to be intentional so I don’t go on autopilot. I think I’m at the point in my recovery plan where my healthy habits are taking over. My unhealthy habits are retreating. It’s a strange thing really, I can feel it happening. Transformational change happens the moment a person really believes that it’s possible.
