How does that happen?
How is it that a virtual 'game' is suddenly making me just stop?
It goes to show that it really is all in my head. I can stop my unhealthy habits any time I want to.
I feel like I do a really good job with my food and exercise. However, just being on the challenge for a few days has already shown me that whatever little bits of grazing I was doing, was adding up. It scares me because I feel like I should know better. What being on this challenge (again) has shown me is that I can do it. The snacking really does have to stop -- and it's ok. I'm absolutely fine without it. Instead of thinking about being strict with my food, I have to see it as something normal. It's not normal to want to mindlessly eat during the entire length of a movie or eat 2-3 afternoon snacks. One snack is normal -- and having a healthy one is logical, because why would we want to hurt our bodies by being unhealthy?
I'm just amazed at how I was able to make the switch once again and suddenly have any temptation around me not be tempting at all.
The bottom line -- don't be afraid. Create good habits, keep up with them, and you'll feel great!
