I am seriously amazed at how fast time is flying!
I was super excited when I got on the scale
and saw that I was down
3.9 lbs this week.
As I was thinking about
I spent a lot of time
contemplating how far I have come.
In just 10 short weeks
I have learned a few things about my
personal relationship with food.
I will be honest
when I started this change in eating
it was super hard.
I have completely cut out
carbs and sugars
as I am in this weight loss phase.
I wasn't sure that I would be able to do it.
The first few days
of cutting out sugar
was like torture.
I swear there was more sugary goodness
to tempt me
than ever before.
I know many people can follow
the idea of sweets in moderation.
I was not in that place.
If there was a sweet I would eat it
and the rest of the bag, pan, box...
Sugar was an all consuming
theme in my life.
I always used to excuse that
I wanted to buy some fun little
treat for my family
to enjoy life
but it was because I was craving it!
Every shopping trip
the cart was filled with sugary treats.
I worked out a lot
and truly believed that I
could still lose weight and eat
any junk that I wanted.
But the scale was
who I had to answer to.
The numbers were
climbing at a rate
that scared me!
10 weeks later,
I feel so in control!
It has gotten so much easier
to say NO to sugar.
It doesn't call my name.
I don't feel such a physical need for it.
I feel bad when I am at a social event
and I turn down treats.
I don't want to make others
but I know that I am not remotely
ready to start adding sugars back.
Change is hard
but it is so worth it!
i am strong
i can take time for me, that is okay
i am beautiful, inside and out
i CAN find time to eat a healthy balanced diet
i am not less of a person if my house is messy
i can do anything i put my mind to
