Yeah!!! I did it!

Sunday, February 17, 2013

The past two days I have had to make some conscious choices about food that in the past I know I would have done differently. However both days, without even realizing it a the time, I used some new skills I have learned on Spark People to make my choice and to consciously make decisions instead of just "jumping in and doing something I would later regret"! Ironically I later read one of the Articles that actually talked abot this, and realized I actually did the right thing to help me make my decisions that on both occasions were the best decision to make! As a result I stayed on track and did not "overeate" only to regret it later!!!! So I am Happy I am getting this and feel like I can continue to do this for the rest of my life FOR ME!!!! Ironically both my husband and son have decided to join me on this journey and are eating much healthier too, and have also started exercising too. Both have started to loos some weigh as well. I am glad that my decision to do yhis for me is also going to help my fmily get healthy too! A definite unexpected Bonus!

    Sounds like you're truly on the right track and doing great! That's fantastic! Remember how proud of yourself you feel now, and come back to this feeling the next time you're feeling challenged.
