Journal entry for 6/12/15

Today, I have learned that sometimes change can be hard.  On the other hand, I have learned that those hard things are worth it.  They can be made easier.  I tried to establish the exact time I was supposed to consume food.  It didn't work because I don't have the patience to consume food at such a manner.  However, it does raise the question if I should give this another chance and learn to be more patient.  There should be a 3-4 hour space between each meal and around 3 snacks.  The meals should not have been so large as to consume the number of calories consumed.  For example, I consumed more than one serving of the Velveeta skillet dinner for lunch, with 2 servings each.  I have difficulty eating smaller portions and in moderation.  After a while, it will be easier.  Just realizing and actually trying are very helpful into losing weight.
