Wow I just weighed and I am down 2 more pounds for a total of 25 pounds this months (my actual high was 342 not what my ticker says) when I started on the 1st!
I can't believe I'm on my way to a new me! I have been planning this a long time (TOO LONG!)
I really feel for the first time if I just stick to plan I will do it this time.
I have been trying to think what I am doing different THIS time that is different from all the other times I that I tried to cut back a little and get a little healthier.
If I had to pick one thing out I would say my food diary. I had never done that before and for the first time in my life I know exactly what is going into my body. I have faithfully logged everything and when I say everything I mean EVERYTHING even if I pop open a box and eat a few raisins I log it down.
I feel like celebrating but really I know better, it is too early. I think I am going to treat myself when I get down to 300 and that would be 40 pounds lost.
What do you guys think about that is that a good idea to treat yourself when you reach a goal? And I'm not talking about like a candy bar as a treat I mean like a trip to the Chinese Buffet (yeah I still crave going there! LOL) for old times sake?? Or a trip to Ruth Chris's Steak House!
OR is it best to just forget about eating that way ever again. I have read so many posts where people say they have been eating low fat and low cal for so long they don't crave the bad stuff they used to eat. Unfortunately I am not there yet. I think maybe I will never be there.
I am pretty certain if someone put a Pizza Hut Meat Lovers pizza in front of me and I was inclined to eat it I am certain I could demolish that pizza in no time! LOL!
And for those of you who have reached GOAL do you ever just go out every once in a while and just pig out or is that a thing of the past.
I guess thats my problem... LOL! I have a problem of letting go of my past eating habits. I mean I KNOW what I need to do and I am going to do it but the thought that I will never be able to go into Red Lobster or Cheesecake Factory and just get what I want slightly depresses me!
But for the moment... I am just happy that I have lost a few pounds. I know it is just a drop in the bucket compared to what I need to lose but I am savoring this little victory for what it's worth!
Happy New Years YALL!
