CurlyLocks66's Journal, 21 November 2011

I love watching the scale go down, down down!! It feels good! I have to remember this feeling and keep making it happen!! This past week was a really good week. I stayed really close to my diet plan. I didn't over eat or make bad choices. I enjoyed all the foods I ate as well and stayed pretty healthy. When I wanted a treat or something different I kept it within my calorie intake for the day. Within 2 weeks since I started I belife I have lost 4-5lbs; and the first week, my calorie intake and slips were still high. This past week I have really centered myself and have become focused on the prize. If I keep up at this rate. I can really see myself reach my goals very soon! I think I am finally in a mental and emotional place, that will allow me to finally accomplish this goal. It is not going to be easy and I am looking making these goals a lifetime of new healthy living and Eating to Live mandate not Eating to Eat!

I know it won't take me long to lose the weight. It feels like such a big number and that it will take forever to get there, but that is false. Time goes by quickly and before you know it 6 months goes by just like that. If I can keep up a weight loss like this for even the next 30lbs that would be great.

Slowly over the next few weeks, I need to find a way to incorporate exercise into my lifestyle. I need to start to feel better physically and take better care of my couch potato body. I can't believe how lazy my muscles and body parts are! Well actually yeah I can believe it.

This morning when I got on that scale and my weight had dropped another 2lbs I was just blown away. I really know I can do this! I would love, love, love to be below 200lbs by Christmas. That is 4.5 weeks away. That means I really need to incorporate the exercise because the decreased calories alone will only get it me done to about 210lbs before the holidays.

Just to say one last time... this journey is starting to feel real good and seeing the results is heavenly.

Girl.... remind yourself of this feelings.... pride in yourself and your health and the steps you are taking to get to a better place. This is a demon you have to conquer NOW! You have struggled back and forth for all your life as long as you can remember. Time to change from an emotional eater to an eat to live philosophy. Time to not let food be in control of your life. Time for you to eat responsibly not out of control. You can get that feel good feeling from other things then just food. And honestly once I start to re-wire my mind, I will realize that feeling is so not worth it.

When I quit smoking it was hard. I did in April 2008. Since then I know I have used food as a crutch. Which has increased my weight and caused it to get higher and barely flucuate. I know that I have replaced cigarettes with food. In my opinion just another addiction. I have to re-think and re-mold how my mind thinks about food. My mother always tells me I can be very stubborn. She is right, now I have to get stubborn and committed to this journey of getting healthy.

I want to never see the 200's on the scale again and I know if I really focus I can get there soon! There is nothing standing in my way of reaching this goal.. Eat to Live... no matter what happens in life, emotions, saddness, loneliness, boredom, feelings..life events, relationships... None of these things are a reason to eat. You eat to fuel your body, thats it! If I can re-train my brain to realize that, I will reach my goals real fast!!

Wow.. this Monday morning really feels like a fresh start in the perfect direction!!

Good luck to everyone else out there on their journey, you can do anything you set your mind, heart and mouth too!
