And I was right! This week I lost 2.8 pounds. Bringing my total to 28 pounds. 2 more till halfway! I wasn't very strict, just stuck to what I knew was healthy. I kept my portions down, even when cooking my own meals. I tried several new low calorie snack options which satisfied me.
My life no longer revolves around food. The 2 times I was really successful at losing weight food took a back seat to many other things. For example, I used to never leave the house without some sort of snack or at least a plan of when I would eat again. Now, I have a much healthier outlook and know I will eat when I am hungry. I will make or get a healthy snack or meal when the time comes. Not that I am not prepared! I will bring a healthy option if I know I will need something ahead of time.
The other day I left the house to bring Jaylen to school and a half hour later thought, wow I'm hungry, and realized I had forgotten breakfast! I am not saying I forget to eat (this was a very rare occurrance where I was running around all morning), but that for years that scenario would never have happened. My focus was so on food and my meals were a huge, huge part of my life. Now I eat for what eating is intended for; to sustain life and nourish my body.
And I have to say I am feeling good and noticing changes. I am down 2 sizes and have had to get rid of many clothes. That's right, I am not tucking these away for, "when I get fat again," I am donating them.
PS: If anyone notices the time on this post, yes, it's correct. I am posting this at 1:50 AM while waiting for news from my husband. He was playing a gig in the city (NY) and called around 1 to tell me his car has been stolen. He is standing at the corner of 11th and West 18th with a ton of drum and DJ gear. Thank goodness his best friend, Uncle Damon is coming to his rescue. Good night!
I am down another 2.8 pounds! Easter Slimdown Sunday
