I just realized today...

I will never eat the same as I did in the past.
I WILL eat the bad foods on occassion, and sometimes irresponsibly, but I have no problem refocusing now like I did before.
I just realized today that it's because I love who I am becoming more than I ever even liked who I was.
I love feeling better in my own skin.
I love feeling my flat belly and hip bones as I lay in bed.
I love that I have a little bit of a waist now.
I love that I can wear jeans, I have not been able to wear since before my 4yr old was born... I need new jeans (-;
I love that I can still have fun, drink margaritas and eat fried catfish and chips and cheese and feel like crap the next morning... It reminds me that my body, does not like those things... (who listens though?)
What more motivation do I need?
If I screw up a meal or a snack or a day, who cares? I still have the next meal, the next snack or the next day to make better choices.
I did not lose any weight this week, but I KNOW I'm thinner, because I pulled those jeans on easily this week and could not even button them last week! Weird, but I'm sure it will just take a few weeks for my exercising to work with me on the numbers.
This is working for me!! It may not be ideal or "right" but it's all I can do and it seems to work!!
