Am I the only one that turned into a turkey on Thanksgiving? I highly doubt it, but I am OK with it. I want to make it clear that I am not on a diet. I want to point this out. To me (as I stated before I am not a professional) a diet is the most pointless thing unless you want to lose weight for a quick fix, like fitting into your favorite dress for a special event. Diets never last and if you don't know what you are doing they can be bad. Our body needs some foods that some diets leave out, so do your research before you jump into any diet.
My goal is to create a healthier lifestyle than the one I have been living the past 3 years. I do this by exercising and choosing better foods to eat. The reality is that I am not going to never eat ice cream again, but how much and what kind is what matters now. So, did I eat turkey, gravy, mash potatoes, stuffing and dessert during Thanksgiving? YOU GOT IT!!! Did I eat so much that my stomach was shouting at me and my body went into a sleep state? NO WAY!!! Did I want to eat more turkey, gravy, mash potatoes, stuffing and dessert? YES, YES, YES!!! But, I've learned and my body is finally learning that I don't need to shove in that last bite because it's there and available. It's all about portion control and choosing your battles. I enjoyed my Thanksgiving without having to think about what was in being put into my mouth because my body knew my limits. I am just finally listening to it. I think I'm starting to get this down pat.........but I definitely have a ways to go. Now that Thanksgiving is over it's time to get back on track and keep pushing forward. 10 lbs down 20 lbs to go. So close to my next belt notch.
