Three weeks - really?

Friday, September 30, 2011

The most interesting part of this week is how reflective I have become over my life, and whether I'm happy with it. It's funny how a decision to take care of my health, has now got me thinking about the rest of my life too.
The last two days have been a bit hard eating wise - tonight I really want to slip into old habits and munch a pizza instead of eating something healthier. It is a bit of a mind game right now - the old habits fighting with the newer ways that I want to live.
My weight loss has been good the last few weeks - it's the same 3kgs that I have been losing for about three years ago, so I'm used to seeing them leave and come back again. Now I'm working at convincing myself that they are gone - the door is not revolving anymore!! But I'm also a little scared - this is unchartered territory - or at least has been for a few years now. Can I keep it up?
Must mention how comfortable I'm feeling in my own skin though. Feeling a little bit more 'me'. Feeling happier moving around and wanting to make an effort to dress well and look good.
Well, will keep monitoring my calories - it's quite important that I learn to eat right. It's helping me and my husband now (who was on the phone trying to figure out what actually was low calorie in the grocery store!!)
But, I don't want to become a slave to the numbers, especially if they start to stop coming off as easily. I don't want to give up. Something good is happening inside me....and I want to reach my destination now.

    The more you do it, the more automatic it becomes it seems.
