My Thoughts:
Oh man. I can totally see why I have gained all this weight. These couple treats here and there, meals outside the home every day, etc.... they all add up. Wowzers! I can see the things I'm doing wrong now that I'm writing it all down. I don't need cheese and sauce on my breakfast sandwich. Lunch I could have eaten at home... or if I had to eat out, skip the rice and/or sour cream and cheese. The black beans and lettuce were good. I didn't need the treats at dinner AND the cocoa... one or the other would've been fine. Homemade pizza was WAY better than delivery... and I spared a LOT of calories. Next time I should add veggies to it or a side salad. Gotta get those veggies in!

I am excited to officially begin my journey on Wednesday. I know if I stick with it, I'll do great. I just have to break this hold that food has over me. It's been my comfort for far too long... I'm ready to end this relationship and take back the control!

To be honest, I don't even enjoy food all that much. Today I literally almost vomited when we walked by the McDonald's in Wal-Mart. It makes me sick. And while I've never been much of a fast-food eater, still... I eat plenty of frozen "meals", bagged snacks and processed goodies. Imagine what my life will be like with fresh, home-cooked meals and snacks. And a life focused on living instead of on eating. Oh yah! I'm excited!!!

  1. I love that you're seeing what you're doing wrong on your own. That's a very important toool to have, so GO YOU! :) Don't feel bad that even when you know you still make mistakes (like my "oh my gosh, I'm hungry" muffin yesterday). It happens to everyone. And you're seeing where you can improve, and improving! :)
