I think I can do this!

Thursday, July 19, 2012

I weighed in initially at 225 and then crept up to over 230. I am now weighing in at 224.6. Yea! I have been using the recipes on spark and I have subscribed to Cooking Light - I absolutely love this magazine! Now that I am living without my husband, I have rediscovered my love for cooking. I am not eating out all the time. I feel better. And, what I think the most important part is, I love what I am eating and don't feel like I am on a diet! I do still have the occasional craving for fast food, but I think after years of being depressed, living in a bad situation, and eating badly, somehow, and I don't know if this is possible, I got psychologically addicted to this food. I need to break myself of this. Stepping on the scale and seeing results is a good motivator. My dad has been staying with me and he is dieting too so that is a good motivator. I am afraid of what does happen when he goes back home and I am just cooking for myself and am allowed to pig out since no one is watching. Will I go back to hit the drive thru? Will I give in to temptation? I hope not. I really want to be healthier. Need people to stop by for healthy home cooked meals. :)

    One idea to help with portion size is to cook your recipes and immediately divide them into how many portions the recipe is for. Save them in the freezer, and then you have an instant TV dinner for when you just want something easy. And it's way healthier than store bought because you made it!

    Keep building those good habits and the bad ones will lose their grip. Good luck.
