I'm realizing more and more how seriously I need to take this whole weight loss journey. You'd think I would have before now. Nope. I've never even dieted before. I never felt the need. Oh sure, I walked with friends on the greenways sporadically. We'd go hiking through the Great Smoky mountains and her foothills. But I never really "watched" what I ate other than watching food go from bowl to fork to mouth. If I ate around people other than a select few, I'd curb how much I ate. I'd hate to embarrass myself or others in my party. And if someone is watching me eat, like really watching me eat, I'll stop eating completely. No one should ever feel bad eating small fries from Mickey D's. I mean sure, it's starch and 230 calories and clogged arteries waiting to happen, but if the only thing you are having for lunch is a small fries and sweet tea half cut, really how guilty should you feel about an entire meal for less than 400 calories?
I know what I have to do to get where I want to be. I have the road map. Here's hoping I don't miss that left at Albuquerque *chomps carrot*
