I woke up this morning, and I realized that changes are happening. Even if they are small, I can see the changes. My back rolls are disappearing rapidly, and I am very happy about that since that is the part of me that I am most self-conscious about. My first weigh-in is coming up in a little under two weeks, which makes me incredibly nervous but I am actually very excited to step on the scale. I'd say that I am definitely in onederland by now as hard as I've been working, and if I'm not, then I just have to push a little harder to get there. I'm very excited to go to the gym today, because I'm going to strap on my heart rate monitor and I'm going to burn off my cheat meal last night (homemade pizza that I ate just a little too much of).
Tonight, I am going to a dinner at my church. I love spending time with my friends there, but I tend to overeat when I'm at things like that so I'm going to be very careful about what I put into my mouth. I need to stay on track and I will not give in to temptations. This is a lifestyle change so I need to remember that this is forever. This isn't just some diet that I'm going to quit when it gets hard. This is my life now, and I need to make it reasonable. That means that if I want to eat macaroni and cheese tonight, I will; but I won't eat a lot of eat. Nothing in small amounts is going to make me fat and make me backtrack. It's all about portion control.
