It occurred to me while on my treadmill the other day that one of the things that prevented me from tracking my food for so long was a sense of apprehension over feeling so *constrained* by the numbers and logging food.
Yet, now that I'm DOING it, I find a curious paradox: the more I exercise control over what I put in my mouth, the more FREEDOM I feel over my choices, my life!
BTW, a wonderful and solid 5 mph song I LOVED revisiting this morning: "Spain" by Chick Corea and Return to Forever:
Great song with the ever light & sprite Chick at the Fender Rhodes and Stanley Clarke and his propulsive string bass moving things along...highly recommended!
This morning when I chose my only size 40 pants and one of two size 16 1/2 shirts I felt so THRILLED to be able to wear such sizes! This, I thought, must be how Clark Kent felt when he changed into his Superman outfit! Proud as a peacock and dazzling with such a sense of accomplishment! I had received the shirt as a Christmas gift from well-meaning parents two years ago. Couldn't yet fit into it then, but vowed to get there...and here I AM! Woo Hoo!
Everyone have a super and lively day!
