So I'm back...
Tuesday, October 20, 2015
And man is there something to having to start over again. It seems like it'll take forever to reach my goal now. The good news is that I have to do this, I have to give it all I have in order to succeed. It's just disappointing. I haven't lost any weight, despite cutting back on sodas and sweets, I'm eating healthier and walking much more than I have in years! It could be that this coincides with my ole Aunt Flo, so she could be the reason I've got some water weight. Who knows.
I'm supposed to journal about my sugar cravings for my 21 Day Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge. I find this is a good one for me. It shows me that I have more control than I think. I was proud of myself for eating healthier yesterday. I had some salad and a half of a baked potato, baked chicken Parmesan. So I had a slice of Pumpkin Pie for dessert. It may sound like I slipped up but it was huge! Before, I would have quartered the pie and had 1/4 or even 1/2 all to myself, but last night I had 1/8th and was pleased and realized that I have more control over my sweet tooth than I thought! Part of the big thing for me is just not to have them around. My situtational Sweet-Tooth is my biggest weakness, but I'm not helpless. Last night showed me, in a big way, how powerful I am and how much willpower I have! Isn't that a wonderful thing? Hopefully willpower is like a muscle. The more I flex it, the better it gets!
