I'm so proud of myself
Wednesday, November 05, 2008
Oh my goodness, I have so many reasons to be proud of myself so far. I've been at it for 2 weeks now and already lost at least 7 pounds. I'm setting goals and I can actually see myself reaching them.
So far I've been really great at logging all my food intake. It's been a wakeup call and I've cut out a lot of stuff I used to get every day, and amazingly enough, I don't miss it! I used to get a Mocha and a M&M cookie from the gas station every single day on the way to work. I would also eat several candy bars, pretty much all at the same time. So far I've only gotten 1 Mocha in the last two weeks, and 1 cookie, and I think on Halloween I ate 2 fun size candies That's seriously unheard of! We also have Doughnuts and coffee after church every week, so I would have a doughnut and a cup of coffee, then we would go to the grocerie store and we would all get another one. I've stopped getting the second one and I don't miss it. I'm also doing great at not getting totally upset when I don't hit my goals for the day, tomorow is another day, and life-long change doesn't happen right away. When I've been eating like crap for so long, I can't expect 100% perfection right away.
I picked up a tredmill off of Freecycle, and while I have yet to get on it I will be very soon (Like when the kids go to bed tonight) I have lots to work on, but I really think that I can do it all if I just chip away at it a little at a tie.
So here's to change! Here's to commitment! And here's to a fresh start here I'm not a slav e to refined sugar forever!!!
