Day 14

Monday, January 16, 2012

Ok - so I'm 2 weeks in now and I want to reflect on the changes I've made. I went from eating 3-4 servings of cake/cookies/junkfood daily to maybe 1-2 daily. And the "junkfood" I'm eating now is lower in fat and calories than the stuff I used to eat. I'm quite happy about this step. I really felt like I was addicted to the junk - the more I ate, the more I NEEDED it. I don't feel that way anymore! It's such a great feeling to not feel controlled by my sweet tooth. Also, I'm trying to burn a few extra calories everyday. I've had my ups and downs with this, but previously (say the last 6 months) I've done absolutely nothing so this is a major improvement in that department as well. I know that in the next few weeks I'll have to step up to the next level (for me, that means 30 minutes of exercise 4-5 times a week) but I'm not quite ready for that yet. I'm sort of looking forward to it but at the same time, I don't want to start yet because I don't want to push too much too soon. I'm really enjoying easing in to a new lifestyle. I really want to thank everyone who has emailed, commented and generally motivated me to continue on here. I feel like my friends and family have multiplied since joining - and I appreciate all of you! I certainly hope that together we can attain our goals. 2012 will be our year!

    You are doing great! I love the changes you are making. Making doable changes is such a wise idea because then you don't feel overwhelmed! As these changes become habits, then you can work on other things too! Keep going!

    Awesome blog! I am so proud of you for making the changes that you feel you can handle rather than jumping into everything at once and having to face the possibility of failure!
    You are going to be successful because you are in control and you already feel and notice the changes! I am so proud of you!
