Well, I am down 4.2# since Monday or Tuesday. So it definitely was processed foods and perhaps Advil. So good lesson learned. Either avoid processed foods as much as possible, or be prepared for the consequences!
I am also experiencing a freedom with my decision to make this plan fit me. I am so happy to be concentrating on "healthy" instead of "diet". Healthy is a better sounding word anyway. And I can still accomplish my goal of healthy even if I don't drop pounds that particular week!
I am now in the process of deciding which things I want to work on first, second, etc. I think tracking every bite, every day and getting enough hydration will be my first two. I am going to work on those for 3 or 4 weeks. Then when I feel they are second nature, I will pick another one or two to work on.
I have also been thinking about rewards. For consistency, not pounds lost. This has been such a boost to my motivation. Not the rewards per say, but to know I am succeeding when I am consistent! Wow! What a discovery!
I hope this in some way helps some of you. I have been struggling for so very long to find my motivation and reason why I am doing this. I hope I am consistent and do not fall off the wagon too often. Or if I do, I hope I jump up and get right back on.
