Admitting a few things

Lately, I have been consuming more calories than I was supposed to.  I know that this is not the traditional journal but I am here to write out my thoughts and feelings as well.  My goal is to lose 100 pounds and I have a long way to go.  I realize that it is up to me and no one else to lose the weight.  I can complain about poor eating habits but I have trouble changing them.  Maybe the problem is I buy trigger foods.  That will go a long way into sabotaging weight loss efforts.  I also consume at times too much sodium and junk food and not enough fruits and vegetables. I don't eat enough servings of fruits and vegetables.  In fact, I had to throw some fruit away and that is not a good thing.  Some fruits just don't last long.  My weight has gone up and I feel like because I have eaten so much in the past week, my health is in decline.  I also stopped exercising and I am struggling to reach my goals, at least for a week.  Now I finally realize that the answer to all of this frustration is to keep things simple.
