Today was great

Friday, June 07, 2019

Learning to not focus on how I look, although hard in today's world but more on how I feel. I am eliminating the word "diet" from my vocabulary. I am at the point in my life where I am happy, not with the belly roll or bulging thighs but with myself. They are a part of me and I am happy with me. Just yesterday I told myself I am disgusted with you because of a misconception of how I should look. I stopped and said really. I made it through a tough year and instead of saying well done, I said you look disgusting. Then I stopped and said no. I am proud of what I accomplished. I will keep changing the things that need to be changed and will be proud of what worked and what did not work. I will be proud of what I learned a long the way. I will take off the ten pounds by August. And if I don't, I will try again.

I did great today. Instead of a whole can of soda (which is not your typical serving, well the way we have super sized everything it is) I measured out 8 ounces. Guess what? I did not miss the additional 4 ounces once I poured it in a cup with ice. I did the same at dinner with cranberry juice. I poured 4 ounces in a smaller cup filled with ice. I loved it this way. I actually felt I drank it slower.

Learning to love foods without depriving myself is my new "diet". If I want a soda, I will have it just less and in a cup instead of a can or bottle. If I want chocolate, I will have it with some fruit. Man, that sounds good for dessert.

Today was a great day. Tomorrow will be a great day!

    I used to drink a lot of diet soda. Now, I drink almost all water and hsve soda as a treat. Good job foe reducing your soda intake. Do it again tomorrow. I believe in you.

    Diet is the food you typically eat, not a fad or temporary change
