I had noticed a while back that my acne had pretty much cleared up. My skin was not super oily and my hair was not frizzy. I also had not eaten anything processed for a while during that time. I was full of energy and felt like anything could be possible. Weight loss was easy and consistent.
Then I stopped tracking and things started creeping back into my diet. A cookie here, some crackers there, a bag of chips, until I could not do just a serving size anymore. Back to eating the whole bag o' whatever was there.
I'm getting more acne again, even all over my face in places it hasn't been in a while. My hair needs to be trimmed to get rid of dry ends, I'm tired again and the cravings are just getting worse.
I know I can go back to eating right, I just need to do it and not bring home any of those processed things. Now that it's spring, it's easier. I can get outside again, far away from the food, I can grow my own food again and not have to rely on as much from the grocery store, plus I can do more GeoCaching with my mom now that we can see where they're hidden again since the snow has pretty much melted.
My skin will clear back up when my body processes out the useless stuff that just clogs it up. The more I get moving, the more energy I'll have to be moving again. The cravings will go away when I stop giving into them. It will take a couple of weeks for my body to go back to the things I had gotten used to and will look better for it again.
That is the difference in the fuel I put into my body. It's not just the weight differences, but the feelings I get from the different types of food. I will be going back to good clean fuel for my body so I can manage to do those near 5k's in my park daily. Apparently chocolate does cause acne.
