I feel like my eating habits change day by day; some days I eat barely anything, other days I overeat way too much. I don't know why, either-- whenever I overeat, I always tell myself that I don't like the feeling (both mentally and physically), and that I know I don't want to do it again... and then it just happens.
It usually happens when I'm particularly hungry, and once I sit down to eat I just scarf it all down really quickly because of my hunger pangs. So, I guess the way to avoid this is to always have a snack on hand. Thoughts?
I feel like I should start all of this off by stating that I am not overweight, nor am I a bad eater. I go to the gym (not as much as I used to...), love to be outdoors, and am in good health. But I still have those last 20 lbs to lose, and I'm committing myself to losing them by February 1, 2011.
Why 20 lbs? Well, of course, I want to feel attractive (not just look it; I've always had a pretty bad body image, and I would really love to feel genuinely confident and comfortable in my own skin), but I also want to be fit-- I want to be one of those girls who goes rock climbing and kayaking and swimming and running all of the time. I really, really love to be outdoors, so why not be able to do everything outdoors?! I want to feel and look healthy-- I already eat really well, and I would like a lifestyle to match.
So... here goes. I really hope I can do it. I know I can do it.
