25% to Goal

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Well, it's been 3.5 months since June 1. Slow but steady has been the mantra, and apparently that has paid off in spades for me. I am proud to say that with much less chaos, crazy, and effort, I've managed to steadily lose 19.6 pounds which puts me officially over the 25% mark.



It feels different this time, different than ever before. I'm not obsessing over calories, or nutrition, or exercise. In fact, I'm not even tracking. I'm not obsessively thinking about food as I used to. I'm in this zen space of being me, which has been a completely different experience.

Yes, it's a slower pace. And yes, I've had my moments of feeling disappointed. However, I know that even if I went overboard with my choices, it wouldn't derail me the next day.. in fact, I've been much more mindful about things in general, and I do believe this has made the biggest difference.

If I am hungry, I eat.
If I am thirsty, I drink.
If I want chocolate or chips, I have them.

I have no "off limit" foods this time. I have no rules and regulations of what I can and can not do. I haven't even added exercise in to the mix as of yet, and I have still had success with this moderate approach.

I'm feeling very thankful and optimistic about the future.
