Kitty Delightly is Back!!
From my lack of posts itís easy to tell that I have fallen off the wagon yet again. This time it was for some personal reasons. Discovering who you really are involves a lot of soul searching and decision making outside of losing weight. To keep it short Iíve been on a bit of an emotional rollercoaster lately and when I feel emotional I tend to eat what and how much I want to make me ďfeelĒ better.
I am more sure of myself and who I am and feel that I can finally give it my all in this quest to lose weight. Normally, Iíd say, ďtoday I am starting my dietĒ but I have read several diet and nutrition books lately and found that they say to slowly work your way into your diet and set your goals.
One book mentioned writing down what you eat and how much you normally eat and also how you feel physically and emotionally for about a week before you start a diet. Then you can mentally prepare for being on a diet and compare the results to what you started with. I am going with this approach this time and will set my diet to start on May 13 which is a little over a week so I can monitor my current eating habits.
I know they are bad and that I eat way too much. I donít eat as many veggies and fruits as I should and feel constantly uncomfortable and bloated. Today, I was in a rush getting ready for work and I hadnít finished all the laundry this week and found I only had one outfit I could wear today. Itís an outfit thatís a size or two too small for me at the moment. What an eye opener! I feel like the most uncomfortable person right now, everything is tight and I feel terrible I have gained so much weight since I last wore this outfit. I am so ready for a change but I donít want to rush into it like I always do I want to do this for real and be honest with myself, and you know the truth is hurting right now, figuratively and physically (these pants are just way too tight)!
