So after my last post about hope it got me thinking. When you hope for something it usually has to do with things out of your control, like I hope someday I will win the lottery. My weight loss is not a hope, it is something I have to work at, it is not something that I can just magically hope just falls off of me. I can not hope that each week I will loose weight, it is all in my hands. I have to work, struggle, and watch my eating and I will loose. Hoping for weight loss is a thing of the past.
I am also excited I searched and found other blogs of women who have lost weight or on the same journey as me, I am enjoying reading that others have struggled,cried and finally succeeded. So you can check out these other blogs I am following in my profile, defiantly worth looking at if you are need inspiration to loose weight like I do. I am at the beginning of my journey a few of these women are at the end.
I also opened my comments so anyone can comment you don't have to be a "follower."
Okay now onto the food portion, today was a pretty normal day. I ate my normal yogurt/granola/banana for breakfast. I am also getting in the habit of grabbing fruit for a snack, I am really enjoying it too, I have found a new love....pears. For dinner I was a little high, I ate a little less than half a sub from Wegman's, I took the cheese off and only had mustard, it was just the bread that made a 7 inch sub 9 points. I am also getting used to that "in between" feeling what I mean is that point your not really hungry, but you aren't full either. I used to eat when I reached that point. I would sometimes have a meal before my husband even came home, then have dinner too. I am embarrassed by my former eating habits. I am in deep enough that I can look back and be disgusted by that former self, but I am not so deep that I feel like I am cured and will never go back to that. I am working to taking it one day at a time, it does seem to get easier though. To end on a happy note... I tried on a pair of pants I bought 5 weeks ago, and I can not wear them, they literally fall off me as I walk....YAY no more 20's!!!
