I could have easily given up on eating the right things and exercising already. I've not been able to get in as much exercise lately, but it doesn't stop me from wanting to go move.
I've been in stressful situations for the last few months and could have easily gone back to food to deal with all the stress. I could have gone to processed items, especially pastries, during these stresses. I could have just sat in front of the computer and engrossed myself in video games and forums.
Every day I keep looking at my body and enjoying all the changes that have been happening. I've been enjoying the ability to get all the way up to my apartment without losing my breath. I've been enjoying the new clothes that come with the weight loss. I've also been enjoying the new foods I've discovered. I like walks in the park.
I think I'd miss all those things I've been enjoying if I were to go back to the habits that got me up to 230 pounds. I find that I'm living more as I lose the weight and the sedentary lifestyle I'd been living. I'm more in touch with my family and less depressed. I'm taking care of myself better than I have been in a long time. I'm starting to like myself more than I used to.
Life is just so much easier at a normal weight.
