But last Friday I decided that it was really time to try to make a really hard effort on the dietary goals. I am NOT cutting out all sugar. To me, at this point, that would be setting myself up for failure. Instead I'm cutting sugar out in stages or basically learning moderation.
(Fun Size instead of FULL size - although I've always thought fun size was a dumb name for smaller sized candy)
I'm 5 days into this dietary goal, and so far so good. I'm not feeling deprived. I know I could be doing more by having 'less' sugar, but I'm not looking at this as a quick fix, a drop 10lb kindof thing. I'm really trying to change my eating habits, and working through why I have such a sugar addiction or the frantic eating that I tend to find myself doing.
I'm into week 3 of Jamie Eason's LiveFit program (minus the leg portion since I'm injured). And I'm seeing progress, even if I'm possibly the only one seeing it. (Hubby always tells me that I look great even when I know I was the heaviest I've ever been. So he's not always the best judge to tell me that there is a difference as he always tells me I'm sexy ;) ). But I feel better. I feel stronger. I can't really see definition yet, but I know it will come in time. Because for the first time, I really think I'm in this for the long haul.
While out shopping, I chose a to-go container of Hummus with flatbread instead of the sugary treats at the check out.
I do believe that I am on the track to success with my goals!
