Trying To Get It Dialed In

I am still not where I want to be on my eating. I am at least conscientious about it, but I need to be actively taking care of it. I am doing great all day until the evenings. Not that I am killing myself still with sweets. I have gotten off the cereal kick and no more girl scout cookies episodes. But I still hit me some peanut butter, I still grab an extra yogurt, if there are bananas, they are in danger. And I am gonna have to ask Kathy to quit bringing Pringles home. Not that we usually have them, but last night we had them as a side to the burgers I grilled and then they wound up tempting me into having another serving. It was 130 calories but still.

I had made a pledge to not snack in the evenings for two weeks last week. It has not happened but one day, so I am renewing that pledge. I think with this being a Monday and my busy life with work and school resuming, I can once again gain some momentum towards that end. I hate that making One-derland, rather than being a glorious event, has made my eating a challenge instead. I stand here today ready to make it a priority that my progress go on. I want, no wait I NEED to see my scale say 189! So here I got. On March 7, 2011, I begin a new journey. This time, the goal is to get my night time snacking under control and to see my scale say 185 pounds!! Tally Ho!!!


  1. You can do it, Shane! Funny because I have never been a night time snacker- I go to bed early that probably helps. I know when I had my family at home I often put their snacks and PB in a special drawer so I wasn't tempted. I usually serve cole slaw with burgers- it gives me the crunch I crave.
