This might stick...
Saturday, January 26, 2013
...although I know I should say it WILL stick, right? My healthy food choices, working out, losing weight...it all seems to be less overwhelming than every other time I've tried. I'm cautious about thinking that because I am only on day 27, but this feels better. And people around me are thinking the same thing. That feels good.
Yesterday I made a huge step forward again. My parents visited and we were planning to go out to dinner. I picked Applebees because I knew that they have weight watchers points, and even though I'm not doing that program, that would help me figure out what was good/bad to eat. I had the best meal in weeks. Steak, shrimp, steamed broccoli and potatoes. It was amazing, and I totally stayed in my calorie target. It felt so great! I didn't feel deprived, I didn't feel like an outsider at the meal while everyone else had "real" food, it was great!
Today I'm doing homework, going to a basketball game and working out. Then it is time to make some healthy foods that I can eat throughout the week, keep things simple and available so I'm not tempted to cheat or indulge in something I shouldn't.
I am going to keep in mind how great it felt for me to know that my parents believe in me, because I know they worry and that breaks my heart. This has fed my confidence, and I'm going to take that with me for this coming week.
Happy Saturday everyone!
