Hi there Vegebet,
Sometimes I would hardly call myself mature. I am giddy with excitement exploring my new life. My ex tries to protray that I might be acting a little too young for may age. I must admit that I have alot of energy, I take dance lessons (belly, salsa, west coast swing - not consistantly lately - too much studying), work 2 part time jobs (gives me flexibity. Yep, my plate is full. However, there are days I wonder how in the world I am ever going to do this. I make good grades but the strain of having little money and juggling so much is enormous. A little depressing even. But ... I will always have little mone, with no career ... if I don't succeed. I put alot of pressure on myself to do well. Mediocre just won't do.
When I lost 70 lbs before ... I wasn't working or going to school (unemployment) so I had a chance to focus only on that. It was so rewarding. I have not had a hard time keeping it off because I have truly changed to way I eat. The occasional pasta, rice or noodle dish. And I mean occasional. Nothing but Pepperidge Farm Low Carb Multi Grain Bread. I do watch portions. And I do slip up once in awhile. But .... this tracking is just what I needed to get me going again. I am really motivated.
And thank you for your kind words and advice. I have a pedometer .... I will get it out and see if that will also inspire me. You are right ... every little bit helps. Have a great day!
