I have now lost 15 pounds. YAAAYY!
Now the road is still very long, and difficult, but I am not scared. I gave up a few times over the last four weeks, but then I looked back and saw myself as someone so silly. I thought, “You have all the answers, you know this works, so why are you eating a McGriddle” (yes I know, the horror). During this process I learned how to buck up, to suck up how badly I want pasta and carbs, so that I can better MYSELF, and be confident in MYSELF.
And through all of this you learn that food doesn’t have to be an emotional thing, and that you can find joys in something other than food, like books and tea.
At the begging of my diet, I couldn’t wait for the end, for the UGW to appear on the scale, but now that I am truly in this with my whole heart I can honestly say that I love the journey.
