Despite all the candy...
Friday, November 01, 2013
I actually got on the scale a couple of days ago and discovered that I was down a couple of pounds from the last time I stepped on the scale a couple of weeks ago.
I guess I've created new eating habits that allow me to have crazy days occasionally. I know I've done a little much lately and will stop in another day or two. I was just surprised that I didn't gain any weight from the bunches of "fun size" candies that have been ingested.
The weird thing is that when I'm trying, it's hard to lose the weight lately, but when I don't pay attention to my eating, I'm not gaining and even losing a bit. I guess that if I just concentrate on making my body move, I'll lose it naturally.
I don't have candy and cookies around the house normally, so this will be back to normal in a few days after the candy is gone. I easily eat a salad for lunch and a light dinner and my regular breakfast every day. I'm not hungry anymore. I don't crave lots of food, I'm back to how I was eating when I was a young adult.
I guess I should just be glad that I'm not going to have issues with food for a long time again. I'm in a normal eating pattern for me and it's not a bad one. I'm a lot more active than I ever have been and I enjoy the outdoors.
If only I could stop obsessing about how my body is deflating. Gravity works and it's not pretty, but I refuse to be a photoshop beauty. I've never needed makeup and will get along with my body as it is, even if I end up looking like those old women that greeting cards make fun of. As long as the people that are close to me love me, that's all that counts.
