Goal 1 done and fighting the diet sabotage monster!
Thursday, September 20, 2012
I got on the scale today and am happy to say that I'm officially 200lbs (well 199.8 if you want to get technical)! Never during my entire weight journey did I ever really think I would get here and now that I've reached this goal,I'm not gonna stop until I get to my goal weight.
Yesterday I was with my husband while I was taking lunch and he tried to persuade me to eat more food. Now mind you, we had already had a pretty big breakfast and as such, I changed my food intake for the rest of the day. Anyway, eventually we did drive over to Del Taco and he tried to tempt me with their french fries, even to the point of putting them in my face and trying to make me eat them. I was strong through, I said not thank you and did not cave to the diet sabotage monster! Even though the fries did look good, I thought about how I would feel later if I ate them and why would I even want to eat them considering I wasn't even hungry. From this particular experience I learned that only you can control what you allow in your body and if you allow not so healthy food into your body, don't be surprised by the consequences of your actions.
I just feel so honored to have been given an opportunity to get healthy and change my life and if I have to go it alone, then so be it.
