I was driving along today thinking about how slow my weight loss was going! Then I thought to myself I put this weight on ‘one chip at a time’ this wasn’t done overnight! It took a lot of bad food choices to get to where I was, so why then do I think it will be a fast road back. I need to remember those binge times and be so ‘happy and grateful’ for ME! I am making the change and yes, its slow but as they say “Rome wasn’t built in a day”! Onwards and downwards!
I have to be patient, my weight was born of the food choices I made and the amount I ate. I am retraining myself, learning to eat healthier and make better choices, more organisation and food prep! It’s a long way from where I was at before, as I said ‘one chip at a time’ !
Every day I need to think before actioning! I notice the effect of some foods like bread for instance, it upsets my tummy, go figure, I love bread and would eat it most days, I never realised it was the reason for my bloated stomach! Wow having a ‘good ole sanga’ can ruin my whole day!
I am learning each day what is good for me and making much better decisions. I still have cheat’ days if I want – my choice, but I find it’s much nicer to do ‘fakeaways‘ from the Weight Watchers App, homemade pizza; fish and chips, coleslaw or a healthy stir fry – all great alternatives and easy on the budget. Hubby is even happy to eat my fakeaways!
So onwards and downwards – that’s my motto – taking time to learn and listen to my body, change my options, make great choices, be determined and remember this happened one chip at a time, my journey backwards will happen, one better decision at a time too 🙂 and I am losing weight, it’s fantastic – 13 kilos down now – still a long way to go but I am 13 kg smaller than when I started this journey!
I find reading and listening to ‘success stories’ helps with motivation and keeping me on track. I love seeing the changes and reading the journey, there is always something in those stories which ring true with me as well.
My WW app has the Connect Community, which I have spoken about before, some great people, motivating stories, funny moments and just good old support and encouragement from people who know! They get it and are there too!
