I try to tell myself that this isn't a diet. NO IT ISN'T A DIET. Diets tend to fail me or diets tend to take out things I do like. I feel this is a lifestyle. I don't take away the healthy things I add the healthy thiings. I smaller my portion and I workout. So WHY should I calll it a diet when this is what should have been done before. But do to the WORLD. When you look around BIGGER portions means LESS MONEY!!. YES! LESS, did you know you can now get two for one or you can super size for a little of nothing. Now days dinner plates looks like 2 small plates in one. Now days a 2 litter soda cost less then a 20 oz soda. This is why most of us go for it it's cheaper and you get more for the money.
Even some of the healthy prepack frozen foods cost more then a family size bag of chips. I have to get my lean cruisnes and healthy choices on sale just to save money. But, then you can look over and see that 4 family sizes pizza cost the same amonut as one health frozen food.
It is easier to go for unhealthy food then it is to go for healthy foods. WHY IS THAT? Well looks like having obese people walk around is what THEY want yes THEY the ones that get over on us for putting all that in the stores. But, then you hear about all the unhealth overweight people on TV with a doctor telling them what they can and should do. But, doctors don't look at it as MONEY issues if you don't have the money to support a healthier lifestyle it tends to fall to the point of eating unhealthy.
This is my point of view.
But, for me this will be a long journey and I'm looking at it as I WONT GIVE THEM my money to keep support my unhealthy eatting and then looking at myself in the mirror saying WHY, WHY, WHY I let myself get to this point.
I have to look at it as it took me years to get to be overweight well in my BMI catogory says obese so it will take me a lifetime to be healthy. A hard journey. Having ups and down. Picking myself up to continue to eat right and workout. Just doing that makes me feeling good about myself.
I like this quote another SP memember wrote in my comment from my yesterday blog post.
"I love myself the way I am, and still I want to grow
But change outside can only come when deep inside I know
I'm beautiful and capable of being the best me I can
And I love myself just the way I am!"
That quote I will copy it into one of my writing notebooks and read this everyday. Love it and it feels on so closet to come. :)
