"You can have the results you say you want, or you can have all the reasons in the world why you can’t have them. But you can’t have both. Reasons or results. You get to choose."

Where am I at?

Where am I at?

I am collecting myself.  It’s the best way to describe how I feel.

I felt very scattered and messy the past few months.

Bit by bit I am getting myself back in order.

I am also trying to make a decision. 

WW works but I don’t stick with it.

Eating only when hungry also works for me but I have had trouble in the past with ‘impulse control’ and emotional eating.  But I have not tried this approach since I started with my ADD medication.  This approach appeals to me a LOT more than WW.  But I worry it is a cop out.  I feel like it is not a diet so it can’t work.

I am thinking I should find the hypnotherapy CD’s from when I saw a psychologist who believes 100% in the ‘not dieting’ approach and claimed a 75% success rate.  Maybe now that I am on the ADD meds I should give this approach another try?  They suggested 3 months scale free while taking this approach as it can take practice to get it right.   Not sure about that.

I also have lots of information from Dr Rick Kausman who wrote “If not dieting, then what” and has had lots of success.

I think my goals for this week are:
  • Do floor work 3 times
  • listen to the hypnotherapy CD's
  • read the 'if not dieting' book
  • see what the scales say next Saturday

That is a tough decision. I was never able to stick with WW either although I know it works.
Sounds like you are on the right path with your plans.
Keep going!

Hello
Nice to see you around again. You are going well. Keep it up it does work. I read about other peoples experiences with WW and it helps.
I have been losing 200/300g for a few weeks now. So little, so long but I know overall my emotional eating for this month is down. :-)
I find tracking tedious but then if I dont do it then I eat 7 more points LOL
Take care and look after yourself.
Cheers, Angharad
