Well here I am facing a new obstacle. When I started back on the weight loss wagon last year, I made a commitment to stop the yo yo dieting and look at this as a lifestyle change. I did ok with a few slip ups here and there and made goal. I delt with my emotional eating and negative thinking along the way. Sometimes they still pop up but I nip it in the bud real quick. My mind has caught up with my outside self. When I look in the mirror I see a healthy thinner me. Now here's the new obstacle. My mind hasn't caught up with the new me on the inside. I had to give up sweets because my body can't handle the effects of the sugar. My mind still wants it but my body says no. When I go out to eat the food taste salty or greasy and I have to deal with those effects. Then I started thinking that eating out is not as enjoyable as before. So I decided to get a cooking light cookbook and look up low fat versions of my favorite take out foods. I found both and I'm looking forward to trying them out.
The inside me changed soooooo much on this journey to health. I pack healthy lunches & snacks when I'm out running errands. The old me (and still comes out at times) would be like just wing it. But I fail because when I let myself get to hungry I want to eat fast food. The new me loves to workout. I switch up my workouts so I don't get bored and I try new ones. I bought me a yoga for beginners DVD today at Costco. I plan and track my meals & I love my fruits, veggies & water. I know there is no finish line when getting to goal. In the past I would get to goal and then go back to bad eating habits. This time around I'm going to keep doing the things that keep me healthy. This is the new me and I'm still trying to get use to her. I read on another blog where the poster wrote " one persons food is another mans poison". This is so true for me. The things I could tolerate in the past has no place for me in the present and I'm fine with that. I'm just waiting for my mind to catch up with my inside. Thanks for reading.
