The NAWLS Small Bite for today is
Surrender.WOW, almost a light bulb moment.....how much time and energy do I waste trying to fight what I know I need to do, and that is to follow the WLS guidelines set down by my surgeon. I actually made an agreement with him when I first met him that I would come back for the follow up appointments and I would follow the program. I do the follow up sessions, but I fight the program.
Some days you may wake up wishing you had the strength to meet the day's WLS demands. Chewing each bite is a challenge. You wish you could gulp a glass of water. You make feel you need additional motivation.
At these times of struggle, consider surrendering. Use a checklist or food plan as your definitive guide, and skip negotiating with yourself. Better days are ahead.
Action for the day:
Instead of rebelling to ease your disquiet, surrender to your WLS regimen today.

Why waste the energy fighting it, is it not just less stress just to follow it?
