Exactly 100 lbs from goal!
Friday, February 19, 2010
I started my journey at 343 lbs-yikes! Double yikes! I still wonder to myself sometimes, did I really let myself go that much. The answer YES!
Today I weigh 275. It is still a large number, but it is far less than 343. 68 lbs less to be exact! It has taken a lot of hard work to get to this point and I suspect the next 100 will be just as hard. I use to get this look in my eye when I saw chocolate cake or mashed potato's or good Italian pasta. The look I could only describe as seeing something so beautiful and breath taking. I was in love with food. Literally. Oh how I loved a certain red wine paired with Italian food. The taste would send my taste buds into a orgasim. Cinnabon has been known to do that to me too. Gone are those days! I have a different view on food now- Food as nourishment and fuel for my body. Something finally switched inside my head. I was addicted to food. It has been the hardest addiction to break because you can't live without food. If you are addicted to alcohol, you can just quit. You don't need alcohol to survive. But food, that is a different story. You can not survive without it. Today I have a whole different view of food. The new thought process really seems to working too. I focus on lean proteins, then I focus on "good" complex carbs. I have cut sugar out completely because I am diabetic now. Food as fuel for a healthy body, has really helped with my weight loss over the last few months. I am now only 100 lbs from my goal. It just dawned on me, this is one of those wow moments. WOW-this feels great!
