A cheat meal won't kill me

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Sometimes I feel like I haven't changed that much, but then I look back on the last two months of my life. I went from soda being the only form of hydration I had to drinking only water (and the occasional coffee because I'm addicted). I went from eating what probably ended up being somewhere around 2,500 calories a day to creating a deficit every single day. Tonight I was thinking that the last week hasn't been the best. I went out to eat three days in a row last week, but I thought about what I actually ate each time. I ate half of what I used to and was comfortably full. I did not lose any weight last week, because I know I still ate too much, but that's progress for me. This is a lifestyle change, not just a diet, and it's important that I learn what I need to succeed. Sometimes it's necessary for me to eat what I want in that moment to keep me on the right track in the long run. I don't regret going out those three days, because I'm learning to make this part of my life, and now I am getting right back to where I need to be. It's been well over a month now of me being healthier and I am doing better than I ever have before, and I can't wait to see what the next months will bring.

    So true, I always remind myself of how far I've come. Even though I have regain I still remember how I used to eat and it shocks me. Great job with all the new healthy habits you're creating. The more we do them the more likely they'll be permanent!
