I totally rock

Thursday, December 27, 2007

I survived the Christmas season, PMSing and all. Actually, more appropriately, the family survived my PMSing during the holiday gorge fest.

I came out 2.5 lbs lighter, and proud of myself for not pigging out on everything in sight. I got chocolate in my stocking, and it's still there!

The cinnamon supplements are really helping to control my snacking urges. I can't believe it. It's been my biggest hurdle in this whole journey, the snacking. On one hand it seems to be emotional, but on the other hand I think it has a lot to do with being insulin resistant (the PCOS curse).

I am loving this. I truly am. 8 lbs are gone. I feel in more control of my life. I feel stronger, leaner, happier, healthier. In fact, last night I was watching a show and they were showing bad foods (it was a health show on weight loss) and I was actually grossed OUT by the greasy offerings that they were showing. Yuck. All the unhealthy food looked, well, unhealthy. Not too long ago, if I had seen the same images, I would have started to "taste" it and then get a craving for that or something similar. No matter the time. It would have been a real struggle to abstain.

I hope this feeling lasts.

    Good for you! What is a cinnamon supplement? I want to hear more about this since I have trouble with the sugar snacking.
