I know that when you lose weight there are obviously physical changes. But one of the most interesting parts of this journey for me has been the mental changes. Yesterday, I went in for some blood work to check my cholesterol. It was high the last time that I went to the doc, and they wanted me to come back and have it re-checked. So I've been really watching my saturated fat intake, taking fish oil, and exercising each day.
All week long I have been thinking about what I was going to do after the test. I had planned a cheat day where I'd eat anything I wanted, and somewhere in the back of my mind I was thinking that I would feel excited to allow myself some freedom. But I just didn't feel the excitement about eating that I would have felt just six months ago. Then I thought, I'll eat some things that I haven't had in awhile while staying within my calorie range for the day. Still nothing. So after the test, I came home, drank a cup of coffee, and ate my usual fruit for breakfast and stayed on plan the rest of the day.
I still recognize myself in the mirror, but I'm not sure I recognize this brain in my head, lol!
