For some reason I'm not as happy, my mood varies ect. So I chatted with Sabrina, my mom (well my mother in-law who I am very close to) and I tried to figure out what is up.
After a while of just chatting and visiting, my mother in law asked what the difference between the me now and the me then (before my weight loss)?
My first thought was .... I was happy when I could eat what ever I wanted, when i wanted! If I was hungry for that Big Mac I'd pull over and go buy myself a Big Mac! Or buy that chocolate bar, chips or fries (ok I guess you get the point lol). Now I find I am catching those thoughts and almost making myself feel bad for even thinking of those thoughts! Or if I do let myself have a "treat" I feel guilty about it! I've went from one extreme to the other!
So now I am just trying to find the balance.
I have thought about this alot and it all comes back to the 80/20 rule (80% you are on track 20% you treat yourself). I have embed no junk food into my brain to the point that my brain has taken it so literal it's effecting me. My next step is to teach myself I can have treats (just not to over do it ;). I also would like to say that when something is happening with you or in your life and you need to chat, pick up the phone, go on Facebook and find someone to talk to because if I didn't talk to anyone and kept things to myself I would still be feeling crappy and that's not good for you or your body.
On a high note....... I am now 80 pounds lighter! 180 pounds (note: at the beginning of my weight loss journey back in January 3, 2011 I weighed in at 260.5 pounds!!!!)
I sure hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving!
Remember 80/20!!! ;)
