Today is the first day of my journey on changing my life. - follow up.


My new eating habits have been pretty easy to follow. Don't get me wrong I have had some rough days. Stress with my fathers illness takes a toll on me and I get really exhausted at times and it is so much easier to grab something quick than something that I need to take care to fix. My oven broke, so it has been harder to bake my chicken and fish, and it’s been too hot to grill. I worked through it. Going out of town, I found out that it is difficult finding a place that cooks your food exactly how you need it to be done.

Besides all that, I have not weighed myself, due to the advice of a very dear fellow blogger; however, I have had to buy new smaller clothes and had to scoot the seat in my car up. I have found energy I had forgotten existed. Even though I am very happy normally, when I am happy now I am very very happy. Yes, I have had some sad days, but it has not been due to my new eating habits, it’s been because of my father’s health.

I had my friend take some “before” photos that I might share. I might just wait to post my before and after photos when my journey is complete.

Good for you! Isn't it a great feeling to have to buy new clothes because the old ones are too big? I'm very happy for you, and can't wait to see the "new you." Just don't make us wait too long for those before and after pics.

Congratulations. This is great news. I'm a big advocate of measuring your progress through how you feel and how well your clothes fit as opposed to a number on a scale.

I hope you get some agreeable weather for grilling. Despite the heat and humidity, I grill about four or five times a week this time of year. It's much healthier, and the leisurely pace allows me to relax and enjoy the evening.
