So, today is day 2 and I started off really well. While I did get a corn muffin, it was a low-fat one and I was able to find out its nutritional value. I also had some orange juice to jump start the day. I didn't consume many calories for lunch either. However, I felt really lazy today and I cruised over to Boston Market for dinner. Bad idea, Erica! Bad Idea :(
All my calories were blown during dinner. While I am upset with myself, I have to look at this in a positive light. Never before would I have looked up these items I was eating and track them, or even care how much it was worth. I would look at the calories, but I wouldn't write them down. I realized that if I am going to get serious in losing weight I need to kick the fast food eating habit, which is so common for people around my age or people who have a hectic lifestyle.
I was looking through other people's spark pages and I found women who have been here for several years and are at their weight goals and look absolutely amazing! There was also another person's blog who touched my heart. She has been on here for 3 months and has already lost so much weight and I could see a bit of myself in her. I used to be a very skinny person and was always self confident. But, with time, I did gain a bit of weight and then after my car accident, I packed on the pounds faster than a blink of an eye. I never realized how fast it was to pack on the weight and how long it can take to take it off; but, that common phrase, " all good things comes to those who wait!" must be true, and I can tell you I can't hardly wait to get here, but I am going to have to learn to be patient.
It's going to be alright, I am learning and I will definitely make a healthier choice during dinner time from now on. No matter how tired I am to cook, I will not be stopping at a fast food joint or buy some sort of pre-made food for me to eat. And, of course... Drinking more water is a must! I did get one glass in... it's all I could manage today, but I will do better.
