Wish I could get on web and change my current weight to 158. It’s still says 164.
I love the 30 day shred! I was actually planning to start it back this week. I’ve never had a workout make me so sore. But in a good way.
Up until Thanksgiving my relationship with food was very unhealthy. Not that I ate unhealthy things, but my outlook on food and calories was just way too unhealthy. If I would eat over 1300 calories a day I would cry. I would eat a cookie or a piece of chocolate and cry. I would eat more than a cup of STRAWBERRIES and CRY. Why? Because I was “eating too many calories” and I was “going to gain all my weight back”
All year I set Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas as cheat days although I knew if I was this upset over strawberries there was no way I could eat Thanksgiving dinner. But something wonderful happened when I woke up on Thanksgiving day, I wasn’t concerned about calories anymore. I ate and snacked while I was cooking and I ate extra dessert and way too many rolls and although my body wasn’t used to it and I actually got sick… I didn’t count a single calorie. I didn’t shed a single tear over what I ate. I didn’t even try to calculate how much fat, or carbs, or calories were in my food. I didn’t care! I did not care.
I didn’t binge on Thanksgiving and on the day after I ate one piece of pie and did add that to my daily food tracker. But it was just so amazing to be carefree for once. So I gained ONE POUND on Thanksgiving. So what? I still weight less and am so much healthier than I was on Thanksgiving last year.
So on Christmas Eve I will have cookies and hot chocolate and milk. On Christmas morning I will eat bacon and gravy and biscuits and I’ll have turkey with my family that evening and I won’t feel ashamed or upset at myself. Because you only get these moments so many times. Why would I want to waste my time on being upset over food?
