Sister T is on a roll~or so it seems! I've been five weeks tomorrow SUGAR FREE and white free! This is HUGE~I have a very long way to go to become a normal weight. With such a challenge I am looking to keep going in a sustainable lifestyle change. This is NO diet for me. Diets don't work long term, and I need long term. My program this week has been generally on tap. I haven't veered off as best I can tell. Here's the details:
Monday: Continued to drink water and eat healthy. Healthy is almost no processed foods. I do eat store bought whole wheat bread and this will change if I can get some good whole wheat flour to use...My energy is picking up! I began some deep cleaning in preparation for the holidays.
Tues: Pretty much the same as Monday. I have several things I do throughout the day to work my program of recovery for my food addiction. I go to a meeting online every day. I pray and read literature. I speak with others who are in my program about progress and hope of recovery. I eat as prescribed by my program. I am becoming a little more active. Drinking water is important.
Wed: I am continuing that same routine. Did I ever say that I am eating breakfast each morning? It really jump starts my day! I am even looking forward to it each morning! Who know, I may MAY get into coffee..but for now, it's water ALL the way...except when I have milk with a meal or a caffeine free/diet soda...rarely.
Thurs: I added a walk with our dog today. Poor thing got stuck with only me to do it, so we went 1/2 a block together...Continued my plan.
I want to report that my clothes are continuing to bag on me. Not too badly yet. I am already a pants size down from when I began, but I am looking forward to getting BACK into my smaller clothes...and then going on down, down, down to a normal healthy weight. I will weigh the end of this month unless I get sick and go to the MD before that date.
I am already planning on how to remain on my program during the holidays. I have challenges where the foods best for me are overshadowed with all the goodies that I no longer can have. I have insulin resistance which is the precursor to diabetes...I DO NOT want diabetes! NO! NO! NO! Sooo surgar is OUT! NO CHOICE! I am asking my family to think differently this holiday~thanksgiving~with me. Instead of a huge meal, I want to plan a family activity that doesn't surround food. Let's face it, food is a fuel...and WHO socializes and makes special the time we fuel our other "vehicles" at the gas pumps? I don't want to deny food its place, but I don't want it to take over the day either...HOPE it's pretty weather~how about a bike ride or a walk or a trip to the movies~wonder what's playing? IF nothing else, I want to haul out the Monopoly or 1K piece puzzles...or Boggle..some game that's fun...
There's a bunch doing Fit Mommy Fri~head on over to join and see what's happening !
