Little changes that add up in a big way
Friday, January 18, 2013
I am really feeling spectacular. I've lost 7lbs in 18 days, and I'm fitting into a pair of jeans that were so uncomfortable I couldn't wear them just a month ago. My muffin top is much smaller, my energy is up, and I'm feeling more confident. I'm going through my closet and throwing out all the granny clothes I own... I don't know why I ever wore them - I'm too good for that crap!!! I think I was feeling so down about my body and I didn't even realize it, that I was willing to wear whatever clothes I found or were given to me, even if they weren't flattering. I forgot what flattering looked like. Now, I spent big bucks on designer jeans, and even though they are already loose and I won't be able to wear them for long, I credit them with my newfound confidence and my ability to lose weight, because I feel so confident!!
I thought I might have blew it all the other day when I ate about 500 calories worth of marble cake... but here I am, today weighing on the scale into a new low.
I'm making better decisions on the smaller things, and that's adding up in a big way.
Some things I'm doing:
mustard instead of mayo
little or no ketchup
no soy sauce
more fruits, more veggies
less peanut butter
more almonds, more peanuts
AND - dressing to look GOOD! When I look good, I feel good, and I don't feel down on myself enough to eat badly!
