it will take small changes to get to my goal...
it will take more than a month to get this off...
I don't want the weight to disappear with the blink of an eye, because it will return just as quickly...
I want this to be a lifetime of healthy...
I want to overcome emotional eating...
I can't do this for anyone but me...
I am in control of this dream and all others that I have, and if I do nothing different then I can't expect change!

Sitting here this evening and reflecting on the day makes me proud. Usually I consider Saturday my "cheat" day, but I decided to do something different. I made the choice today to skip the sweets and greasy foods, and stick to what has become my life changing way of eating. I feel more alert, rather than the sluggishness I typically feel around this time on a Saturday; it feels great.
I guess I am overcoming another bad habit. I've so long had a sweet tooth, and indulged in my favorite Sugar Babies, but not today. I walked past them in 2 different stores, the giant size, and I feel like a champ - they didn't win I did.

In addition to the wonderful progress that I am making towards my weight loss goal, I'm also endearing myself to study for another certification. I enjoy learning new things, and it's even better when you are able to use what you have learned quickly. Much like exercising, it starts off as a challenge, but the more you do it, the better you become.

Well, I have to admit that I overindulged on Saturday. A friend and I went to lunch at a place I haven't been in quite sometime. The food tasted great, but it was really laden with a lot, and do mean a LOT of butter. Since eating healthier, all of that left me feeling lethargic and icky. Will someone please remind not to do that again??
Sunday was much better, back to my salads and grilled chicken. I am really getting the hang of this. Yeah for me!!

We've heard the saying "when life gives you lemons make lemonade," remember that also applies to our health and weight loss goals. So, when life gives you a few pounds make some moves - literally.
Take the time to reflect what propels you to the fridge or your favorite restaurant - preferably beforehand, and then MAKE the decision should you proceed or not. Don't let you taste buds rule your life (and body), they've done enough damage as is. You have the will, I know you do because you have joined Spark People, and Spark People is a way to get you to your ultimate goal. It's not going to be easy, especially since you will be changing some seriously ingrained behaviors, but realizing what those behaviors are taking action against them will be the biggest strides in this journey.
Have a fabulous day!
