I started back up again last Monday. I was sick and tired of feeling out of control of how my body looked. Ive started dating again and want to feel self confident about myself so that will shine through my personality. I tend to hide my true self behind the bulge and It's affecting the type of men that approach me. I want to look how I feel, and I want to be energetic. I STUCK WITH IT FOR A WEEK! doesnt sound like much but it is too me!! My biggest downfall is always the third day of the program, but I read a lot of articles on emotional binging, and have curbed that by recognizing what hunger actually is and what boredom is. I turn to healthier options instead of binging!! One week is a huge (!!!) accomplishment for me and I couldnt be more proud of myself. Usually if I do happen to make it through the third day, my second downfall tends to be the weekends when Im not as occupied as I am during the week, but I stuck with it and this feels so much better than anything has ever tasted (and I lost 3.5 pounds this week). I realize that amount will decrease which is good. really, the slower the better. The slower I lose the weight the longer I keep it off is what I'm finding. :)
P.s. Dont tell anyone, but I am ADDICTED to exercising!!! who woulda thought i'd ever utter those words??!!?!?!
