"Eat to live...
Friday. 1.20.12 11:54 pm
...Do not live to eat."
That's why my mom's guitarist told me tonight when I asked him how he lost so much weight. I feel like the last time I saw him (which wasn't so long ago) he was chubbier, and same with the time before that. Now he looks great! (Not interested, I'm just very impressed.)
I need to grab the motivation deep down inside of me and hold on to it for dear life. I finally started going back to the gym yesterday, and I NEED to make sure that I keep it up every day, and DON'T splurge just because I went to the gym.
I also need to learn to just not give in to my freaking cravings. Oh, craving skittles? There's a vending machine downstairs. Coke? There's a vending machine downstairs. Honey Buns? See previous. I just need to STOP. I KNOW when I'm not hungry, but I try to convince myself that I AM hungry when I get a craving.
I am going to buckle down. Starting tomorrow. And by April, I WILL be more pleased with my body. I'm going to take a picture and track my progress. Thanks for all of your advice in my previous entry about weight loss.
I understand the vending machine issue. It's so easy to just pop over and get a snack... X| If you don't have any ones or change though, you can't really use them, so I guess that's sort of a way to keep yourself from visiting the machine...

Ha, and now I see how I used to be a chunky monkey. I saw your title and before I opened the blog I was like "More like live to eat!". Shame on me. One thing that always helped me control cravings was a calorie and exercise tracker called My Fitness Pal. It's a website but it also has an awesome app for smart phones and Ipads and such, I always just used it on my phone. It helped me lose 80 lbs. What happens in April?
