When this Featherweights forum opened, how many of you featherweights thought "Gee, I'd have to think about that."?
I did, even tho' I've been posting in the "Almost There" thread for months. I even started that thread about being ready to go. I've also been blabbing about my A, B,C, and D of weight loss ... my maintenance plan ... yacking like I knew what I was talking about, yacking like I was actually doing any of that
Well, I've spent some time soul searching today. Isn't that what windy, rainy, lazy Sunday's are for?
I started eating healthily a long time ago. I didn't lose any weight but everything, I was eating too much of, was good for me. Then I started counting calories ... still sticking with my good foods. But somewhere along the line I got off track. I started adding in things I wouldn't normally eat because they somehow made my diet look good or made impressive percentages. Me ... me ... that's right me ... I had slipped into that dreaded trap of putting myself on a diet that was not sustainable. I was in denial of course, telling myself that with the odd exception (and never eating away from home more than two meals in a row) I could do this forever. I can't. Me and my innards do not do dairy very well. On my last 'on plan' day I had almost two cups of cottage cheese, yogurt and whey protein powder. Can you say flatulance? Lordy, my waist would expand and shrink up to 3 inches in a matter of hours. That's not what I want!
And I didn't even clue in when we had an extensive thread going about "What Does Eating Clean Mean to You?"
And to kick the cat again ... I'm not really even losing!
And so (it's too late to make a long story short) after about a week of parading around disguised as a "Featherweight" or "Almost There" ... I think I have my head on straight. I think.
... tell us what's gone thru your head since you saw this forum and considered that you "might belong".
