The scale moved!!! Finally, and in the right direction. My body fat % is way too high.
I am tracking my food intake again and what a struggle to remain brutally honest. I cannot believe haw many calories those fat free fruit chews are. And do I really need to eat the whole package or 2 in on sitting!? ugh!!!
However, tracking my food is helping me focus on what I am eating. Hopefully, sensibility will give me a kick in the rear and remind me that I do not need to eat that junk to survive. It has been three days now and I am seeing some some victories. Like yesterday, I took the grandkids to the dollar store so they could buy a small token. As they were looking, I was walking arund the store with a package of Reisens (chocolate covered caramels) in my hand. However, DH left the store before I got to the checkout and I did not want to break a large bill and I only had $2.00 and some change, so I put my bag of candy back.
Guess what?! I survived! I did not pass out, hyperventilate or throw a tantrum. I can live without those caramels.
