Okay, today was day one of my official "eating healthy & exercise" lifestyle change. I knew it was coming after the holidays, so I've been stuffing my face with all my favorite fatty foods - a last meal of sorts. I've had more fried mozzarella sticks in the past week than most people eat in a lifetime!
I ate somewhat healthy this morning - half of whole wheat bagel, a slithering of peanut butter (for the protein), topped with half of a banana. Now I'm starving and I'm looking through the cabinets for a snack. I haven't fully prepared for my new healthy lifestyle, not enough healthy stuff, and still too much temptation. I had a hand full of peanuts (you know, for the protein, right?) Still hungry...God help me. I am thinking of joining Weight Watchers, but the only meeting time I can fit into my schedule is on Friday morning. So I have a whole week of this torture.
Then, just when I needed encouragement...like a light shining out of the darkness...I found this video by Anita Renfroe that sums up how I'm feeling.
To all those who have started the year off determined to lose weight and get healthy...stay strong, and pray for me, PLEASE!!!
