Default I can see clearly now...

So yesterday was my first whole day OP in a while. I sort of lost my mind right before my 50lb milestone and didn't get there. I have been teetering between 230 and 229 for like 2 weeks now. And it isn't a plateau it's just that my cheating caught up with me. And boy was I a big fat cheater.

So I have been kind of in denial about it all although I knew something had to be done I wasn't doing it. But the other day I for some reason started to pay attention. I notices bones. I mean I fealt the bones in my ribs and hips an couldn't remember that last time I could do that. I tried on a pair of pants that had been hiding in my closet for like 4 years. And realised that most of the cloths in that box fit me now. I hadn't even dreamed they would fit yet. I took out those pants and thought I'll try but I wont even get them buttoned. And I did and they werent even snug.

I think at some point I stopped noticing my progress except for on the scale. And I have made alot of progress. I just need to pay more attention to myself. So today is day 2 of being OP. I am taking some advice from some ladies on here and giving myself the gift of 3 days OP. Then that 3 will turn into more.

I have done this and I will do this and I need to stop ignoring myself. I think I'll take some progress pics this evening after work. hmm.

Atta girl!!!! 3 days. One day at at time. One hour at a time. Give yourself the gift. ALLOW yourself to form and develop new eating behaviors and habits. If you keep "cheating" your not allowing yourself to get those habits ingrained in you. You're making it waaaaay harder then need be.

Congratulations on your progress thus far. I look forward to hearing of more continued success!

Excellent, well done. There seem to be quite a few of us creeping out of the end of the long grey tunnel!
