Ok.....I am several days in and doing very well. I have not felt deprived at all and stayed within my points!! I was so proud of myself...................until today. Wow. We stopped and got McD's for breakfast and then my mom is here and it is beautiful outside so we decided to get food and go to the park. I let the boys choose and and of course they chose Chick-fil-A. We got our meals and ate at the park and played for about an hour or so and then ran some errands. On our way home Buddy asked if we could go get ice cream so we went to Sonic. I knew I was blowing it but entered my points anyway. HOLY CRAP!!! It is 4pm and I have blown my points for the day and even some flex points.
The only positive about today is that even after just one week of eating healthier, eating like I did today has made me feel like crap! This experience is also opening my eyes to the way I have allowed my boys to eat. They have eaten better this week by just because of the fact that I prepared better meals. Even if I don't become a skinny witch.......I do want to feed my family food that is better for them.
The really sad thing about today is that until two weeks ago, this was not unusual. And you could even throw in a candy bar or two. Being totally honest, I do not have a thyroid problem or anything else that can cause weight gain. This girl is fat because she likes to eat!! I have come by my behind honestly and will just have to work it off the old-fashioned way.
I am not hungry at all right now but I am seriously considering going and doing a high-intensity cardio video just to earn some activity points so I don't end the day so out of whack. This will be a process as it is a total lifestyle change for me but I believe I can do it!
Thanks for joining me on this journey!
