So I have been on my weight loss journey for 3 weeks and I have to tell you it has not been easy! I have had a couple of events that have revolved around food. We all know how much I love food!! I wouldn’t be in this predicament if I didn’t like food and cooking!! I was sick, we all know how hard it is to eat right when you don’t feel good. All I wanted was Hot Chocolate and Chocolate Chip cookies but I have to tell you I did not medicate myself with cocoa and cookies I was good, I was strong, I still want cookies!!! LOL!
I met with my nutritionist today for my weekly appointment. I told him how much I disliked my eating plan how much I want to eat the things I shouldn’t eat. He listened without judgment, without chastising me, without making me feel like an idiot for feeling this way, I needed that. I needed it to help me move forward, to recommit to my eating plan and work it as prescribed for one more week before we make changes. I want to do this it is my choice, he was ready to make some changes but I said no let me do it this way one more week. Tonight I want ice cream, it’s a good thing I don’t have any in the house!! LOL!
I went back to the gym. Yup I did and Mr. Pinkcakeplate went with me. I would not call it a date because I hated every moment I was there!!! Hahahaha! I could only do 5 mins on the elliptical but I did do 20 mins on the recumbent bike while “pinning” on Pinterest!! If I have to spend time exercising at least I can “pin” while I am doing it!!! I feel pretty good about myself for going even if I didn’t work out that long!!
Are you ready for the grand total? I have lost a total of 17 pounds in the past 3 weeks. I feel so much better physically and mentally. I don’t hurt like I used to and that is a good feeling!! I am a long way from my goal but I will get there one step at a time, one meal at a time, one day at a time!!!
Over the last couple of weeks I have learned some things about myself. I have learned I am strong. I have learned that eating right isn’t about will power it is about determination and staying focused. I have learned that I can be successful. I have learned that its ok to make mistakes. We learn from our mistakes they do make us stronger.
