So, I have been on a diet for about a month now. I started right before news years. It is a new years resolution thing, but I started early so I would gorge myself and give myself ten extra pounds to lose.
I have lost a little over 7 pounds. I feel good. Dont worry, I am not going to disgust you with what I ate....maybe with descriptions of my shits, but this is not about that. For the first time in my life, I can see myself actually losing weight. It isnt just an effort made while really believing, or knowing that the first time I see cheesecake, I am going to eat it.... and not just a slice...I am going to eat the whole damn thing.
So, if anyone else is dieting, hit me up.. I am on MyFitnessPal.com....I use the mobile app.
I think the positive outlook has come from finally being realistic with myself. I cannot just tell myself I am big boned. I am fat. I may not be grossly O-Beast....I may be healthy, but I am getting older and the fat will catch up to me. This conversation with myself was not negative..I believe in myself and I know I am a beautiful human being.
The conversation was realistic.
There are certain things I want in life. In order to achieve some of those, I need to present myself in the best ways possible. I need to be fit and healthy. While I am healthy and strong now... I need to not look like a jelly donut...although I do love jelly donuts!
