Like many people, I have struggled with my weight all of my life. The extra pounds didn't start affecting my overall health until the past couple of years. But I am a food addict. When I'm not eating, I'm thinking about my next meal. Food is comforting and I reach for it to celebrate and to feel better, which is ironic because it's slowly killing me!
I have tried different diets and they never last because I'm not motivated. I've watched shows and documentaries that show what will happen to me if I keep gaining weight. I've reached out to nutritionists and doctors for advice. And I've come to the realization that it's all up to me to change. Other people can give tips and tools, but I have to commit to using them. This is why I'm going to try weekly meal planning. And I'm going to use a huge classroom pocket chart in my kitchen to make it easier and fun to interact with.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks will all be accounted for. I will also leave a spot for one cheat meal and dessert each week. I hope this works and will be something I can stick to. I'm excited to attempt meal planning and I am ready to lose this weight!
