Checking In

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I have maintained a sugar free lifestyle of over two weeks! I am so proud of myself. It is still incredibly hard though and I'm anxiously awaiting the time that my brain says "You've got this, it's easy." On Friday I start adding fruit back in to my diet and plan on making a fruit salad this weekend with Persephone.

I have kept up my plans of working out four times a week.
I have been eating within my calorie range and tracking everything every day this month. This is kind of a record for me.
I have been sleeping!
I have been meditating.

So yeah, I have no idea what my scale will say on Friday but I'm happy with my progress regardless of the numbers. emoticon

    Towanda, you're doing so well! I'm thrilled for you!

And I bet adding fruit back will help a lot with the "I've got this" feeling, since you'll be able to have something sweet if/when you crave it. And what's the worst that happens? You have fruit 5 times a day? Oh no! :)

    a healthy life is more than what the scale says. It is about making wise food choices as well as staying active. You are progressing well and it looks like you are having a successful week emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    The scale is one dimensional so it never tells the whole story. Hopefully it will be encouraging.

    I went sugar free about 7 weeks ago and I have to say I have never felt better. I still haven't added fruit back in but plan to. I realized that all of the brain fogginess and depression had to do with my sugar intake. I'm not saying I won't ever have a piece of cake but it will be a very rare occurrence. Good Luck to you!
