i totally see where your coming from, EvilWombatQueen lol i was thinking about it today actually.. like, what happens when i lose all the weight? and get to my goal weight? if i keep doing what i'd been doing, won't i just keep losing weight? doesnt that mean i'm on a diet? i dunno! i guess it doesnt matter what word you use.. its a means to losing weight. and then when you lose the weight, you have to try maintain that weight.
lately, instead of eating 2 big packets of chips because i'm hungry or bored, i'll have a handfull of chips if i crave them.. and of course, after that handfull, i still feel crap, i'm still hungry, its never satisfying.. so then i think 'why bother? i still feel the same, except now i've eaten crap which means more fat to lose'
i think dieting is to LOSE weight, and to maintain your weightloss, you need to watch what you eat and how much you eat.
also (i'm not sure if this only applies with me?) but over the years, every diet i've gone to, it was 100% strict. my meals were planned, i couldn't slip up at all.. and i think thats why i felt so trapped and really restricted from eating other foods.. so after 2 weeks, i'd just give up because i wouldn't feel as though its worth it. i wanted to be happy and be able to eat the foods i like! not feel like i'm depriving myself! but this time around, i've had my share of bad things, including custard tard, billabong icecream, pasta, rice, bread.. but i dont have HEAPS of it. and not often. so i think thats helped me get much further than i usually would, because i know that i can have a bad day, but its just 1 day. as long as i eat better the next day, i feel much better about myself.. because i'm not sitting around all depressed because i'm craving so many things and get to the point where i'm like 'why bother?!', then go eat a whole tub of betty crocker pre made icing lol
i hope i'm not the only one who that applies to haha oh well.. if i'm the only one, then i'm special
its all about the ups and downs.. i've finally figured out how to handle the downs!
by the way guys, i'm making a dress
its a cute black with white polka dot dress, with purple satin in some of the back (because i didn't measure something right
whoops! hehe) i really love 50's rockabilly swing dresses (except the wiggle dresses because i have an 'apple figure' so that wouldnt work out too well) so i'm hoping to make a few more over the next couple of weeks
