As I ease into my healthier life, I feel its easier to make choices no matter where I am. I can go to any restaurant and I won’t lose control or over indulge. I have managed to get into a position where I can curb myself and know when to stop, or make better choices. I can eat one or two forkfuls of a dessert without needing to have more. Bear in mind, I am only doing this because I am in weight loss (fat loss) mode. When I have dropped all the weight, I am definately going to enjoy a piece of cake from time to time.
What I have realised is that there is no such thing as “cheat”meals. I don’t even use the word and don’t refer to it because I don’t want to associate any negativity to food. I want to be healthy and make good food choices; and be a normal human and enjoy a piece of baked cheese cake with no guilt. But not yet. I need to do the work first to have more options available. Right now I still feel like a student and I am getting better at figuring things out and feeling more and more comfortable in this relatively new world.
Besides the weight loss, I am getting complements on my glowing skin. Ok, so its part greens and water but honestly, I bought this barely there uber-natural and dewy-looking foundation from Bobby Brown too. haha. But ill take it.
I am feeling really happy and confident (and lighter). I feel like I am breathing better (can it be that all that fat was affecting my breathing? I think so) and I feel all my clothes and underwear are too big. Winning. But I wont be shopping yet. I think I’ll wait until I drop another 10kg and treat myself to some new gear after reaching that next milestone.
I am ending week 9 on a happy note but I know its still a journey and I need to be patient and keep pushing through.
