A good start.

Friday, March 16, 2012

I was delighted with my first weigh-in. I had lost 5 pounds in the first week! The second week I lost 2 pounds. I am feeling rather pleased with myself to be finally losing the weight I thought I would be stuck with forever. I know I still have a long way to go, but I have made a good start. More importantly, I am learning new, healthier eating habits and I am missing my old ways less and less. I still crave things from time to time, and I have had one day when I completely gave in and went way over my allowances. However, tracking helped me see that it didn't have to stop me and, in fact, was not as big a problem as I had convince myself it was. Previously, a day like that would have been enough for me to believe I couldn't do it and to abandon my diet. Not any more! It's one day in my life that I over-indulged. I can make up for it and it won't hurt me in the long term. The tracker is really helping me to stay focused and I am finding it easier to choose foods that will provide me with the nutrients I DO need, as well as keeping the calories and fat to a healthy level. I am so happy to be in control of my eating now and to be making the positive changes that I have been dreaming about for so long.

Start Right

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

I'm hoping that finally I can make a good start on my weight loss. I've been making excuses for too long and I am determined to stick to a healthy eating plan! I've lost weight before, so I know I can do it - but have never managed to keep it off. I feel frustrated and demoralized when I gain it back, so I guess that is my challenge; to maintain the healthy eating habits and keep the weight OFF!
