Written by Malissa Spacek on August 23, 2013This month’s weight loss blog comes to us from one of our patients who recently has been going through an experience that pretty much all of us can relate to! After the visit they were kind enough to share their experience with us and new plan of action with us. Hopefully their story can help you in your weight loss journey.
Two weeks in a row! I had been stressing over this so I went in last week -I had done it again. Melody and I sat down and she explained that this happens to everyone. She said I have to kind of shock my body and mind to get going on my weight loss route again. But I knew inside that it had to have been something else. Work has been very stressful lately and as much as I wanted to lean this issue on something besides me, I just couldn’t. The word “addiction” means being stuck on something or some kind of substance and not being able to shake it. My addiction was not a drug, nor was it an illegal substance, but to me and this diet it was an illegal food substitute. When I found myself craving something sweet I went for a bowl of corn flakes. I know it’s funny and sounds lame, but I was hooked and I was substituting cereal for meals. And when I told Melody she claimed that this really does happen to people. And that is probably the main source for my plateau for the last week. Makes sense…
My goal, after realizing all of this, is to eat just my 1/2 cup with skim milk and 1/2 bannana for only breakfast this week. So this week I have seperated my cereal from the box to individual bags already measured out. One for each day. And when I have my craving for something sweet, I grab my 12 grapes or some watermelon. So I’m teaching myself to overcome my addiction. And hopefully next week with my workout and cardio, I’ll to be back on top of this weight loss and finish strong.
I hope and pray that all of you are doing well with your weight loss goals keep your head up stay strong and remember the staff at Broken Arrow Med Spa and Weight Loss are trained to help us out and be there for us through the thick and the thin of our weight loss battle!
