In my last blog I realized that while I had been monitoring my caloric intake for the last few weeks I had been exceeding it by a few hundred calories every day. Since that blog I have stuck with my limit and seen my weight go down each day. I am amazed that I am losing weight, it has been so long since I have felt happy about my eating and body, and I'm only doing this because of your suggestions and support.
Yesterday I went for a walk with my friend right before dinner and I knew beforehand that after the walk I would be hungry and tired, and I didn't have any dinner planned. I could go to the grocery store and find a healthy dinner, but when I am hungry the grocery store is not a safe place for me. So I went online and looked up Subways nutritional values menu, and decided on a healthy 6 inch sandwich (in advance) and after my walk I just popped into the nearest Subway and got my dinner. The sweet gentlemen at Subway even were nice to me and thanked me for visiting their store. It was as if I had Divine Intervention helping me get through what I had feared was going to be miserable.
I have no idea why, but the pride and exhilaration I feel when I stick to my goals is unlike anything I have felt in years. To be on my own side, to be my own advocate feels so good. And it's really not that difficult. Especially after a few weeks when new habits are in place.
Keep it up everyone!
