Today Karen's blog is titled Hope is not a Plan. It really got me thinking. I am a hoper without a plan. In the back of my mind I believe that normal eating will just COME to me like snow falling from the sky. Like it will just float down and envelope me without any particular action on my part. It's not that I'm not working, but I may not be working hard enough.
This is partially why I am getting back to this blog. I want to become more active in my approach to normal eating. I want to objectively look at each of my habits one by one and begin to make a plan of action for each one. I want to change each habit one by one until it becomes second nature.
The good news is that there was a time when I just felt completely overwhelmed by the idea of trying to change anything because I didn't think I had any regular habits. I couldn't even imagine how I'd eliminate 200 calories from my daily diet. I just didn't think I had any kind of consistency where I could remove those 200 calories and have it make any kind of impact. I just figured I'd eat them at some other time of day. But slowly I have come to understand and see my habits more clearly. This is progress!
I will use this information and start small so that I can build my success. I will become a Hoper with a Plan!
