I think I can do this!
Thursday, July 19, 2012
I weighed in initially at 225 and then crept up to over 230. I am now weighing in at 224.6. Yea! I have been using the recipes on spark and I have subscribed to Cooking Light - I absolutely love this magazine! Now that I am living without my husband, I have rediscovered my love for cooking. I am not eating out all the time. I feel better. And, what I think the most important part is, I love what I am eating and don't feel like I am on a diet! I do still have the occasional craving for fast food, but I think after years of being depressed, living in a bad situation, and eating badly, somehow, and I don't know if this is possible, I got psychologically addicted to this food. I need to break myself of this. Stepping on the scale and seeing results is a good motivator. My dad has been staying with me and he is dieting too so that is a good motivator. I am afraid of what does happen when he goes back home and I am just cooking for myself and am allowed to pig out since no one is watching. Will I go back to hit the drive thru? Will I give in to temptation? I hope not. I really want to be healthier. Need people to stop by for healthy home cooked meals. :)
