Just like a switch that is flipped, a light comes on, and I can see what it is I need to do to be successful on my weight loss journey. It is amazing to me. Why does the switch gets flipped either way? I know that when I begin to feel overwhelmed, I shut down. and then I look for comfort food. Not being able to go spin class presents a problem too because spin class alleviates my stress levels. Put them together, bam the switch goes off and I’m standing in a dark room eating pop tarts from a foil bag.
How does the switch flip back up? The answer to that is more elusive. I’m not sure how I manage to get back on track. Habit change is built around belief, and I guess I just remember that I believe I can change, I do the things that I know work, and I reflect on everything. Plus, a little good news never hurts, big shout outs to my nephew Zachary who fixed my bike for me! You’re the best Zach! I have been getting good workouts and that makes me feel so much better.
I am so grateful that my healthy habits have flipped towards the light. it is day three and I am feeling in control and I am already getting good results. This phase is another hurdle in my weight loss journey. If you need a little support, let me know what’s going on. Sometimes it helps just to talk it out.
