And it's a good thing. I'm down 2.4 lbs this morning from yesterday. That's 255.1 lbs for anybody who is counting. Still a big girl, but I'm not hungry and I'm taking in less than a thousand calories a day. I only know that because I was curious and counted them up in retrospect after reading so many bloggers who are concerned with their calorie intake.
These are quality calories that I'm taking in. No sugar-free nutrionless treats for me. If I'm going to have 130 calories, I'm going to make it good stuff. Unless it's my Pepsi - then I'm just having that - and only one a day. When I want chocolate, I have Nutella or walnuts. I don't buy junk food most times, unless I REALLY want it and can't stop obsessing about it. I do buy a treat for my kid - usually poptarts. So there's stuff in the house, but I don't want it. If I think I want it, I read the label and wait 5 minutes. If I still want it, I have it.
I eat what I want when I'm hungry. I stop eating when I'm satisfied as opposed to full. Full is not a good feeling. I move my body at least 30 minutes a day, but often more. I weigh myself daily.
A lot of those things the diet gurus will tell you are wrong, evil, counterproductive. I think it's just because that can't figure out how to make money off of it yet.
Bring it on!
