Two months-twenty-five pounds gone

Thursday, May 26, 2011

It's been two months since I started back eating healthy and exercising. I have got rid of 25 pounds of fat. It does not seem like a lot in the over scheme of things (165) pounds to go but I am thrilled. I am half-way to my first goal of 50 pounds. I can not bear to think of how much I am going to lose so I am taking it in 50 pounds increments.
I have been doing real good on my sweets. I stopped eating them Easter. I have not had any processed sweets. I have one tablespoon of honey most days. That is very satisfying to me.
I have been very calm these past weeks. Most of the time when I am dieting I am a nervous wreak. I would get very emotional if I did not lose like I thought I should. These last few weeks I have had no loss on some weeks, one pound on some but I figure my body will have to let go of this fat sooner or later if I keep on eating healthy, counting my calories and exercising. We go out to eat and we have made it a game to try and see what we can come up with that is low calories and healthy. I have tried things that I never thought I would try and was pleasantly surprised. I have tried more fruits and vegetables and I find the more natural your food the better it is.
I am coming to grips with what I have done to my body by overeating. I have stopped beating me up verbally and I have started thinking loving thoughts of me. I have made mistakes and I can blame no one for making me fat. Sure I had lots of things going on in my life that was not pleasant but hey life is going to throw you some bad times and I am learning you deal with it.
You don't binge. It sure does not make you feel better. So what if someone does not like it you are losing weight, that is their problem. I am who I am thin or fat. If you love me you take me as I am and if you don't well get on down the road I don't need you for a friend. I want to be encouraged and when I lose all this weight I want people to be happy for me that I have taken my life back.
Its been a great two months and I am looking forward to learning more and doing more.
Keep on Sparking.

    Anytime you get discouraged, just think about a big bag of dog food. THose are usually 25 pounds. DO you want that on your backside again? This is a marathon not a sprint and I am proud of you for reclaiming your life and those 25 pounds are MONUMENTAL. Those 25 pounds prove that you are physically able to change. GOod luck honey.

    I have had similar experiences for the last month. It's been so freeing to be out of the food fog! I have 171 pds. to lose to reach my goal. I can't focus on that number...but I'm taking it in 5% increments. I'm accepting the place I'm in TODAY and taking the steps to narrow the gap to my goal. Let's do it together!
