"What is one change you can make today to get you to your goal?"
Here's what I replied: "I love that it sounds as simple as making one change. OK, here's mine: My one change will be no eating after dinner. That's it -- that one change is going to make a huge difference this week."
I have been flipping PISSED at my results on the scale for the past month. Either I'm staying the same or gaining a pound. My exercise has been good but I've been OUTTA CONTROL at night. Last night, for example, I ate four corn tortillas and a bunch of salsa while watching TV.
Four? Why not one and call it a night?
Because I dragged the bag and the jar of salsa out of the fridge and into the living room where I tore and dipped, tore and dipped, tore and dipped until the tortillas were gone.
I'm a completeist that way. Everything's a single-serve container to me.
So I'm going to make that one change: Nothing after dinner. Sounds harsh -- why not a piece of fruit or a frozen yogurt bar or something?
Because I need to get out of the habit of heading to the kitchen after dinner. I need to SHUT. IT. DOWN.
And the notion of "one simple change" sounds completely do-able.
Because I know that one thing will make a big difference on the scale.
I started last night and we'll see what happens on the scale Monday morning.
