"Being On The Right Track"

Okay here is my food boundary list: cookies, cake, ice cream, candy, sweet ice tea, juices, all processed foods, all fried foods, and chips. This is it, the list in living color. I have lived with these boundaries for one week and to my surprise it was easy. There is more but these have been my favorite. I will ask this question every time "what is the nutritional value in this food?" It feels like a weight has lifted and it's hard to explain at this time. One thing I know is that I will never have to ask the worst question of all "why did I eat that?" It's a great day!
Back to what counts, my reduction in weight: The weight is melting off really fast. I can say good bye to size 20 and hello size 18. My underwear is very baggy, my bra is about 2 cup sizes smaller, my shirts are very roomy under the arms and around the lower waist, my chin and cheeks have separated, and I can see my feet when I look down. This is awesome and rewarding. The best of all my butt can fit in my coworkers chair now. That told the entire story. She has a skinny girl chair and I have never felt comfortable in it. Well, that has all changed.
For the rest of the week I will be researching food value and planning my routine for October. I am focusing on eating foods higher fiber and omega 3. Looking forward to the new month and a new routine.

This is cardio week: boot camp and weight lifting everyday. Good-bye September!
So happy to be on the right track!

  5. Congratulations on all of your hard work. I laughed out loud when you talked about finally seeing your own feet. I just found mine last week. It so surprised me that I announced it out loud to my friend. "Hey look at that, I can see my feet. Wow this is so cool. I can really see them without bending over!"
