Today I accomplished something that I haven’t done in years, completed 2 full days of food logging.
I know that may not seem like something major, but it is something big for me. I fell off the wagon and then rolled down the hill a few years ago. I’ve made half-hearted attempts at starting again but they either didn’t last a day or didn’t make it past day 1.
My starting weight yesterday was 212.8. That was lower than I expected since I really wouldn’t have been surprised to have seen it in the 220’s.
Right now my main goal and focus is to just take it one day at a time. The hardest part is starting AND sticking with it. I know that each day it gets easier. Today when I woke up I felt different than I have on the other day 2’s. More determined could be an accurate way of describing it. Maybe the way day 1 started is the reason.
In the past day 1 was anticipated and much planning went into it. We’d have to do shopping to have the “right” food, etc. Yesterday when I woke up, I weighed myself and then just entered what I ate and drank without the fanfare. It didn’t really feel like a chore. I don’t know how to describe it really. I just feel ready. I’m tired of being tired. I’m tired of my clothes being tight. I’m tired of having the way I look in pictures. I’m tired of needing to go shopping to buy clothes in a bigger size. That really takes all the fun out of getting new clothes.
Today was easy as well. Tomorrow will be a test for sure. We went shopping today so we have all sorts of food to choose. I’ll also be home all day which I wasn’t today. But tomorrow isn’t here yet. Today I’m celebrating the achievement that there will be a day 3 because I don’t remember the last time when there was one.
