Yay! The scale is going back in the right direction! 🙂 I’m very happy with this loss, because I’ve cut back, my eating is getting back to normal, and it showed.
Yesterday began a break from sweets and sugar for me. I remember Diane mentioning once that when she started her journey she didn’t eat any chocolate for a month. She said something to the effect of it was an area of struggle and she needed to cut it out completely because she couldn’t handle just a little bit when she started out.
Now I can usually handle my small amount of chocolate chips, or just a cookie, and I’ve gotten good at fitting it into my day… but… sometimes I can not. During the holidays it was mostly high calorie real food that put the weight on, but it was also some very yummy desserts.
I decided that I’m going to cut out desserts and sweets. They can often be the extra 100 calories that I don’t need in my day. I’m not going as far as to not eat a protein bar that has chocolate on it, just no desserts, sweets or sugared drinks for a month.
Wish me luck!
