Well this is the 6th day of my lifestyle change, and I am happy to announce that by only changing my diet, I have been able to lose 4.2 lbs. This is so exciting, this just reiterates once I get this whole change in eating habits down pat, when I incorporate exercise into the program I will have more results. I wouldn't say that my energy level has changed yet, but my enthusiasm is coming back. I have found I really don't like going anywhere other than work and home. I haven't been out dancing(which I love might I ask) in a very long time. That will be a treat to myself once I have lost 10 lbs. I don't like how my clothes look or fit. I am not one to wear tight clothes, very conscious of the rolls being seen by anyone else. I don't like looking at them so I am sure no one else does either. My attire is baggy and loose fitting which sometimes to me depending on my mood when I look in the mirror is dumpy looking. I want to be able to pick out an outfit and look in the mirror and say damn I look good. That day will come again, and I am excited to embrace the new me. I am at an all time high on my weight so I think I have experienced a little bit of depression. I ask myself how did I let it go this far for so long. I am worth more than that, and my temple (body) deserves to be treated better than I have been treating it. I am 50 yrs old and I have to say it has been pretty good to me. Me on the other hand have not been very good to it. That all started to change a week ago. I have a long road ahead of me to get to my goal weight, but I will have patience and climb every hill that comes between me and my goal. I will succeed with baby steps. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. I wish you all much success on your individual journeys.
