I was so excited to yesterday morning to get ready for my meeting. I started to feel anxious as I was getting dress. I wear should wear this or that because it will not weigh as heavy. Then I realized that I dont want to do those gimmicks. This is what I want to get away from. If I put in the work of eating right and exercise the results will eventually show. I dont want to keep getting stuck on the numbers and letting it dictate my behavior.l In the past if the number was good, I would reward myself with food and end up back where I started. If the number was bad, I would comfort myself and end up abandoning my efforts. I want this time to be different. Anyway, I weighed in this week and lost 4 pounds. I am happy for the number but I have enough experience to know that this is small down payment on the work ahead if I want to be successfull. This week I am working on incorporating more fruits and vegetables to every meal. I tried grilled eggplant with a drizzle of olive oil. I was shocked at how delicious it was. My next vegetable I will try is spaghetti squash!
