The sun is shining, the weight is dropping, I’m eating healthy and enjoying it. What could be better than that? Winning the lottery maybe, or not.
Good morning all of you lovely peeps! Everyone’s days are up and down, and I am happy to say today is an up day. Ten weeks of eating healthy, I am slowly getting to my goal. This week I lost 2 lbs. For the last three or four weeks it has been barely one.
What did I do this past week that was different from previous? I stopped eating late at night. I eat nothing, unless it is cucumber slices after 7 pm. I am keeping up my water intake of three to four bottles a day. I did not have one ounce of junk food this week. I have stopped snacking on soda crackers, which was my go to for feeling hungry, bored, depressed. It was hard to do but this week I just didn’t refill the cupboards with crackers. I had replaced it with eating shreddies later in to the night so I stopped doing that as well. Every little bit helps. Now I have the shreddies or all bran earlier, like three in the afternoon or six in the evening. Just a half-cup with skim milk to make sure my tummy doesn’t feel too hungry when I’m going to bed.
I have this awful habit of waking up an hour after going to sleep and feeling hungry, even if I have snacked just before going to bed. This week I started convincing myself the hunger pangs, which weren’t really that pang-ful, are just the unnecessary fat ripping away from my body. Yes, the fat is ripping away and that is why the growling happens. I really am not hungry when this happens, it is habit. Instead of going to the fridge or cupboard the minute I think about food, I tell myself I am thinking about it because the fat is coming off. Hey, whatever works! It seems to be working for me. I am also taking vitamin supplements…iron pill, omega 3’s, daily vitamins to make sure I am not going to become anemic again.
I started at 150 lbs, now I am at 134 lbs. I will do a comparison photo when I get down to 130 lbs. It should only be two weeks from now since I plan to stick to this healthy eating life-style I have set up for myself.
How are you all doing for your life-style goals? Whether it is travelling, eating, exercising, drawing, I would love for you to share it here in the comments. Thank you for your interest in my posts and following along!
Today, I am not Frazzled! but that is my signature so… have a great week!
