Another First

Last night we had chicken and a whole lot of vegetables for dinner. Everything was so flavorful and filling, I was quite satisfied with my meal. Just this morning I realized for the first time in my life, I actually ate a meal and did not even think about rice or bread. Amazing!!

I think I've crossed over to making good food decisions.

What about you?



  1. Hi Joy,

    Thank you for stopping by my blog The Fit & Frugal Challenge

    You have come such a long way already, what an accomplishment. Having a trainer must be a big help, and I bet it will really help you get over those rough spots. I hope you will be injury free from now on.

    Other than after my pregnancies I have never had any significant weight loss, never really done the whole dieting thing etc., but in my teenage years I would say that I suffered from an eating disorder.

    This is the first time that I feel like I am just fed up, and I need to do some changes, but I am afraid to step up on the scale too soon. I think I will be discouraged, if I do not see any results.

    How often do you weigh in?

  2. Hi Friend, I am with you on the significant weight loss. The most I've ever lost is about 40 pounds. I am approaching that again. This time I am doing it without program food or counsel or doing something harmful. Now that I'm remembering back - what kicked it into gear for me was I heard something on the Dr. Laura show that caught my attention. I've listened to her radio program for years. She frequently has callers who ask her how they can be more disciplined or how to get motivated to lose weight and get fit. What's so weird is, for years, every time she answers the question, I get interrupted and I never hear her answer. One day in December 2009, I finally got to hear it. You know what she told the caller? "There is no magic answer to the question, it's
    a matter of grit". You just have grit through and "do it". That's it! And that what got me jump started!! I just took the time to look at where I was ~ It is what it is. The reality of the situation was terrifying, but that was my baseline and I just starting baby stepping into each new thing or change that I needed to make. Just do something towards good health each day. Not looking for perfection, just progress. You can do this!! I'll keep my eye on ya! Do the same for me. Accountability is key!! Hugs!
