You know when you look in the mirror and you realize that the body you always had is gone/
Yeah I had never experienced that until this evening. It's disheartening and upsetting. I used to be the 120 pound captain of my cross country team. A couple years and a few stress fractures later, I'm borderline obese. I miss my body and I miss not worrying about what I eat. Now, whenever i meet someone I immediately compare their body to my flab, which only makes me feel awful about myself.
So. I'm going to fix this starting now.
I'm going to:
stop eating Snacky junk food
stop eating cereal
stop stress eating
stop eating after 8pm
stop eating candy, cake, cookies, pie, poptarts, and all other sweets
limit myself to 2 pieces of fruit/day
From now until the end of Lent, I will add one more thing to this list each day.
According to this tracker thing, it will take hard core dieting until June for me to regain a somewhat normal weight (125 pounds). So I suppose this is the beginning of a long journey.
Can I do it?
Today I realized how awful cereal is for you. What have I been doing my entire life?
