I’m banishing numbers from my life. I can’t let calories, weight or inches dictate my moods. I am diving in headfirst and trusting myself. If millions of French women can be healthy and slim while eating croissants and duck confit, so can I. Yesterday was my first day of no-numbers, and it was a lovely day. Not coincidentally, I didn’t binge or want to binge!
I woke up this morning feeling like a million bucks. I was a little hungry so I had a piece of bread with some jam and some coffee with milk. Damn near skipped to work I was in such good spirits. I spent the morning catching up on interests forums online and cleaning my workspace in prep for desk moving day tomorrow. I wore an outfit I like and put on some eyeshadow. I caught a glimpse of my reflection in a mirror, and I felt pretty. I ate half my lunch (yogurt, lean chicken with broccoli, yellow bell pepper and cherry tomatoes, an apple), decided I’d wait a while before finishing it because I wasn’t hungry anymore, and finished the rest later in the afternoon once I was hungry again.
I have a feeling I am going to wind up eating a lot less simply because I have sacked the rules. Let’s see how well I handle this newfound freedom.
