Another AHA moment!!!

The other day after working out, I got on the scale. Once again, it hasn't budged. I cried for a few minutes and started looking over my workout notes. I couldn't find anything that really stood out to me. As I was driving to work, I realized I hadn't eaten breakfast and it all started to click. The confirmation came when I was reading in a health forum and an article was posted about how food has the greatest impact on your weight. It all made sense. I knew this before but it was until then that the lightbulb really went off.

My eating habits are sabotaging my weightloss!!! There I said it. And before anyone starts on me about eating right and blah blah blah, that is not the problem. I eat very clean and very healthy. My problem is eating, PERIOD. It seems like eating too little is just as bad as eating too much. I think my body thinks I am starving and is holding on to this weight until it feels the threat is over, LOL. Most days, I don't eat breakfast. I don't wake up hungry, I wake up thirsty. Sometimes I will go the entire day without eating. I know that's bad. It's not like I don't have stuff to eat because I keep healthy food and snacks around me, it's just that I don't have the desire to eat.

In order to remedy this, I've set my cell phone to notify me when to eat until it becomes a habit for me. My goal is to eat breakfast, lunch, dinner, and 2 snacks in between every 2-3 hours. I'm also putting notifications into my work email so I can have a back up reminder. I wouldn't be surprised if I finally dropped a couple of pounds next week. Q
