Today I weighed in at 159, almost 158 lbs. The truth about if I have been working out is staggering.. No! I haven't I have just been far more conscious of what I have been putting in my mouth.. This weekend I just knew I would over do it.. this week I turned 32 years old and I had a party at Texas Roadhouse.. let me tell you I had a lot of people there and I had not eaten anything that whole day so I was ready to dig in to all sorts of desserts and everything..
That did not happen, I had at least 16-18 women come through there and the truth is I had to make time for them all, they paid for my food and I could have eaten anything I wanted, I drank just about all of my mudslide, but I did not even dig into the fully loaded sweet potato like I wanted to, I ate all my fish however.. isn't that amazing, I waited all day to eat that and I thought I was really going for the gusto and well, I hardly ate as much as I normally would.. I have to tell you the cake was good at work on Monday, I ate another nice sized piece tonight, so it is not that I have been eating the most healthy, I actually skipped the cereal for breakfast a couple of days, the cereal I normally add sugar to and simply ate fruit a couple of days, I tried to just change up small things, instead of eating snacks at work that I bought I only eat small amounts of it when the co-workers bring it and yes they will bring me starbucks and donut holes in a new york minute, but I have to make the distinction to say I will only eat 2 of those and give my kids the rest, maybe I might have one for lunch but not going to eat the whole thing just cause you bought it.. I'm learning that even making little changes in bringing about difference in the weight loss process, more than anything else I see it in my wasteline which is the greatest bonus.. I am excited about what is to come for me. I am determined to prevail and not just survive this season of my life.. things are a changing.. but the Lord is good anyhow!
