Some of you may have read in the General Chatter area that my life had taken some interesting and very stressful turns lately. Very bad marriage problems, facing a lay off at the end of the calendar year, and loss of a family member. In that time I was not completely on plan. For the most part I stayed in my calorie range, but there was a LOT of junk that made up those calories. I also stopped working out. I finally got my head back on straight enough this weekend to approach the scale. over the month, a .4 pound loss. Not bad at all, considering. But here's the best part - I have really noticed that even though my weight hasn't been affected in an upward direction, I just feel like complete s**t. My stomach hurts a lot, I get bad headaches, I'm tired, cranky, just blah all around. I don't think a lot of people realize how much our food choices affect our general mood, not just our weight.

But the point of this all is, I am officially back on plan. I look forward to the feeling of having fresh foods in my body :D I'm actually VERY excited!!!

that is SOOO awesome! I'm happy for you!

I agree, I fight with myself over it, but there are certain foods that although I may like I just feel awesome when I eat others.

I completely agree! When, for whatever reason, I stop eating healthy, I miss it... physically, emotionally, the whole thing. It's so nice to go back on plan and focus on what makes me feel good and healthy and energized.
