Sharing my weight is one thing but sharing my diet with viewers now that's another. But this morning on the Good Morning Show I revealed the good, bad, and the ugly. I shared my food journal for the beginning of this week. Now I had the power to hide the ugly but then again it serves me no favors being dishonest with myself or with all of you. So I knew I had to write it ALL down no matter what. I wrote down a sausage biscuit on Saturday and fast food plus pizza on Sunday. Somehow seeing it this morning on the TV screen made it even more real to me that I do have to make so many more major changes. Honestly I haven't been putting up enough of an effort. Ouch, let that sink in for a moment. But on a positive note I've come to that realization. Honesty really is the best policy even if it's not something you want to hear.
Making healthier choices is what I struggle with the most. But it's something I think should come easier but for whatever reason it just doesn't. Obstacles always seem to by standing in the way but when it comes right down to it I have one person to blame and that's myself. Mostly it boils down to lack of planning on my part. I'm following the Weight Watchers program and I'm given a certain amount of points each day to count as food intake based on nutritional value. However I have to constantly teach myself what is healthy and what's not.
Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed by all the changes that I'm making but I am changing and I have to remember that. I have to feel proud that no this journey hasn't been anything of what I expected but I will get to my 100 lbs. weight loss goal even if it means me kicking and screaming the entire way! But I do need to make it easier on myself by following the advice of nutritionists. I know my body does not respond well to carbohydrates because of a medical condition called PCOS. So I really do have to make some drastic changes. I'm also more prone to becoming a diabetic and I do have pre-diabetes so I need to go ahead and make these changes.
Here's to a new way of life, a new way of eating, and hopefully very soon a much skinner, happier new me!
