Dealing with Commitment Issues

11846507_1618178515105605_2536597346909591741_n.jpgI have always had a problem with my weight. Now don’t start thinking that I feel ugly or anything like that, that is just NOT ME! I am a beautiful curvaceous woman and no one can convince me otherwise. I want to lose some of the weight but it is hard for me to commit to any diet or excise plan I make to lose the extra fluff. I figured before I even address the weight issue, I need to address my commitment issue first.

About 10 days ago, I decided to commit to making sure I eat breakfast everyday and to eating a salad for lunch everyday for the month of February. I choose to do a food challenge, because it is a commitment that also helps me lose weight which is something else that I struggle with. As you can see it has been 10 days and I am still sticking to it, but it is still too soon to tell if I will get through it. I usually throw in the towel when I get into the third week, so the test hasn’t even started yet.

Preparing my breakfast and lunch at the beginning of the week is what helped me get through the 10 days. The preparation is really just buying the pre-made salads for the week and some type of protein like egg or chicken to have it with. Breakfast is fairly easy, I just alternate between oatmeal and a banana or 2 boiled eggs with a pomelo.

I have to say that the hardest part so far has been to remind myself that this is not a weight loss challenge, weight loss is just a bonus thing that might or might not happen. I think in my mind when I think of it as weight loss challenge, I want to weigh myself everyday and start expecting to see pounds going down everyday, and if I don’t see any change, then I just give up. I know it is not realistic, but that is what goes on in my head. If you are wondering if I have lost any weight yet, I don’t know, because I haven’t weighed myself, but I have committed to it for 10 day and that is worth celebrating. I will keep you update after getting through the 3rd week which is my biggest hurdle.
