What I found was, I was caught up in a LIE I fed myself. I was “living to eat instead of eating to live”!
I am happy to report that I like this new me! I have seen the most dramatic change in my body, that I never would have imagined. I mean the clothes in my closet actually FIT! Who knew that could happen in such a short amount of time. I am back in heels! I am no longer afraid for my knees. I used to wear heels ALL the time, even when I was preggers! But I started having pain, I got an MRI, X-ray and Cat-scan which showed it was my upside down triangle shape (I’m a pear shape) that I carried too much weight on my knees.
So, the medical diagnoses of my pain, was “weight gain” . Even when I heard that I was not ready for the “D” word, so I made the switch to full time flats wearer. It was a sad day!
I slipped up yesterday and ate horrible and you know what… It was gross. I felt anxious, sluggish and cranky I haven’t felt like that since I kicked my sugar/carb filled diet to the curb.
I have made carbs a small portion of my diet. I read the labels carefully and I try to find healthier substitutes. I’ve noticed I have more focus, energy and stamina! Eating right is just as addictive! There are possibilities out there that I never knew existed.
I have not started an exercise routine, but I will let you know how that is when I do. Keep me in prayer and motivate me if you wish. I have a lot of motivation within but a little from with out isn’t too bad either.
