I was reading through someone's blog posts and she gave tips on how she lost weight.
One of them was being honest with yourself, and to the people on Sparkpeople.
Quite honestly, the only one I'm fooling is myself.
I've mentioned this before but I do think I have an addiction to fast food.
It's really hard for me to eat it only once a week, because, quite honestly, I really don't like to cook/don't really know how, and I don't even know what to cook.
Fast food is tasty and convenient (not really cheap though because I buy food for my sister and I, and it adds up!)
But I consume thousands of calories worth in one sitting!!!
I wake up with fast food on my mind, trying to find ways I can get it.
And the dollar store! oh my, cheap foods everywhere!!
But I know I'm doing my body a disservice, quite frankly, I feel like I'm treating it like crap.
I swear, I'll probably have withdrawals, no kidding, trying to cut back on fast food.
I'm so not used to eating healthy foods.
And we haven't been to the gym in a while.
The good news though is that on January 17th, I went to the Doctor's and I lost 4 pounds!! That has to be from cutting out sugary drinks! So I'm excited about that. :)
I told him that I still struggle with eating out, and again his advice was to eat out only once per week. I have to look at the positives- eating out only once per week will save me money and calories...and fat, sodium, and lots of things! He also said to start off with simple recipes, since I'm not much of a cook!
I also think today marks my 1 year Sparkpeople anniversary!!
Thanks for allowing me to be honest with you and God bless you all on your weight loss journeys!
