So this is the Monday after my great cry for help, I wanted to say to everyone that responded to it, thank you so much!!! I continue to read and reread all of your wonderful responses and advice, it makes me feel so much better, and so less alone.
It doesn't seem near as impossible now to restart this momentous journey.
I am pleased to announce that although I'm not quite at 100% yet, I feel so much better than the other day. I keep thinking one step at a time. All weekend I have not drank any soda, I have averaged at about 96 oz of water a day, and the only other thing I drank was two cups of fountain drink green tea and one cup of hot chocolate cappuccino (I jus couldn't say no lol) but other than that I have done awesome with the water, the food choices, not so much, but I reminded myself one change at a time and it made me feel better, not as hopeless as I did before. I felt so defeated, and you guys and your wonderful responses really helped bring me out of it!
I plan on trying to fit maybe three hours if exercise in this week and starting with my food changes. I know it's a long journey, I'm just soon impatient.
I stopped at 7eleven this morning to get some healthy choices for lunch today at work. Got a banana, protein bar, cottage cheese and a fruit cup. And then I saw the taquitos. I thought to myself why not?? Them for breakfast and then healthy food the rest of the day....
So I ate four (they really aren't that big) then I went to log them into my app, and just about had a heart attack, they were 280 cal EACH!!! I was floored. I had to look it up online to see if that was right. So basically I just ate my whole days allowance in ten min -_- well so much for a good start to the week.
But one step back means I need to take a giant step forward.
Lets see if I am up to it.....
