A lot of things have changed since I went on a diet. I found that I can do most things without catching my breath. Before, if I do my laundry, I would be panting and have an aching body just from reaching our very high clothesline. But now, it is ridiculously easy.
Aside from the energy boost, I found that my mind is blank most of the time. I don't have the time to plan or even think of any type of thoughts (which is mostly negative) and I think that's a great thing. My boyfriend commented about it and asked me why I am so positive. The funny thing is that I don't know why. I just trust him I guess.
Also, I feel lighter when I wake up in the morning and I enjoy reading Sparkrecipes and whipping up some meals. And my stress? Almost zero or at least at the manageable level. I monitored it because I don't want to go back to my old emotional eater self.
So I guess a good diet and exercise is really good for you. I just did not know it back then. Noticing the positive changes really gets me to keep on going.
