Was that a little glimmer?

Thursday, July 10, 2014

Well, I made it to day 2! That's something, right? I made better choices in my eating. I stopped myself when I wanted to munch before dinner was ready. I didn't scrounge around in the cabinet before bed looking for "something" to munch on. And I'm back today!

I may be seeing a little glimmer of my spark...still dim...but it's there!

I've discovered Quaker Popped Rice Snacks - Ranch flavor. All the crunch and saltiness I crave, but a healthier option. It's a start!

Today, I was sure to pack some cherries and a nectarine for snacking on later in the day. I almost left the cherries with my daughter at the sitter's house because she wanted some, but I said - "NO, I need a healthy snack for myself". I gave her a few and kept the bag. I know that sounds terrible, but my sitter has plenty of healthy snacks for the kids.

So, here I am! Day 2...1 small step at time. Small changes, leading to bigger ones.

    Great Job! It's all baby steps. I take it one meal at a time, one day at a time. And every time I choose to go in the right direction, the glimmer gets brighter. I had a major setback and gained back 20 pounds in 4 months. I am just now about 3 weeks in to eating healthy again. It feels amazing!!

    You're doing great, keep going!!
