following: CurlyLocks66's own diet
performance: losing 0.4 lb a week
I am 34 years old and single, with no children. My goal is to lose weight at a steady pace and reach my goal weight by November 28,2013. I am not using any specific diet plan. I am just going to follow what I know works. Eat to Live! Eat Healthy!
I have put signs up in my kitchen, car and office that say "Eat to Live". The reason I have done this is because, I don't eat to live. I eat feel voids in life, I eat because of emotions (angry, sadness), I eat because I am lonely, I eat due to stress! I eat because it is one thing that I can control when I feel like I can't control anything else.
So now I Eat to Live... what does that mean? I only eat to fuel my body, to keep it healthly and alive. I follow a set amount of calories to eat everyday and also keep a close eye what nutrients I get from those calories. For example meeting recommended daily intake values for sodium, fat, fiber, protein, sugar, carbs, etc.
When I feel emotions or I feel out of control, I am trying to make other choices then food. I have started to talk to family and friends more. Began activities that I used to enjoy in the past.
Most of all I have gotten real stubborn, real committed and have focused all of my energy into me! I used to spend so much energy focused on other people and on negativity; I don't want to be that woman again.
I am also reminding myself that I didn't get this way over night. It took a long time to get here. I am not going to change over night, it is going to take time to see results. I can't expect instant gratification.
I hope that through this journey, others will be able to inspire me and in turn I will be able to do the same.
