I'm down another 2 pounds today. WOW.
I'm almost confused. I'm satisfied, happy, I feel in control, I don't feel at all deprived, I feel myself making mental and emotional progress AND I'm losing weight?
Last night's dinner was some grilled tilapia, roasted red potatoes, and green beans drizzled with olive oil and some fresh ground pepper. OMNOMNOMNOM.
I've always cooked with olive oil, but I've never thought to just drizzle it on food. But you know what? It's delicious! And best part it's a MUFA!
I've already learned some good tactics to outsmart my weaknesses. By habit, when I get home from work around 8:30pm and make the Hubby's dinner (usually something deliciously carby and fatty) I am too beat from the day to keep myself from just having what he's having.
In the morning, when my appetite is virtually non existant and I'm not all burnt out from the day I've been preparing exactly enough of whatever to feed him, packing it up and sticking it in the fridge. That way when I get home his meal is ready to pop in the microwave and there's zero temptation to eat it myself because then I'd have to make a whole new thing!
I'm so happy to be where I am right now. I remember being in this place almost 2 years ago. The place where I'm making healthy choices, and weight loss is just a by product. So happy to finally feel stable :)
