Food tracking (part 9 I think!)
Monday, August 15, 2011
I have been on my journey for nearly 2 years now and I know several things about myself that ONLY this journey could have taught me:
It is about how I feel and not about how I look.
One good choice almost always leads to the second.
Lying to myself is stupid because, DUH, I know the truth too! (that is code for if you have 50 grams of something, say it is 50 grams and not say 30!!)
And most important, if I don't put in the work that is a choice that I make and I will not offer an excuse. Every choice is mine alone to make, good or bad.
So, with what I have learned I know I need to get back into the good habits of logging my food. So, that is my promise to myself. I am not happy with how I feel after the few extra pounds from vacation. The choice is mine alone, do I eat well and exercise or do I go back to not feeling good about myself?
Feeling good about myself is a gift I did not have for most of life. Now I do. I won't get on the scale because that is just depressing. If it takes a month or a year to get off the few extra pounds well so be it.
Feeling good about yourself is a gift, and that gift is priceless!
