Hello everyone! I know it's been forever but here it is. I hope this is helpful for someone out there. (i tried to attach pics but it wont let me, so i'll add them to my gallery)
It has been two incredible months of this amazing journey.And I have to say it is absolutely different then anything I imagined. I feelgreat, life is moving along just as it should be. Food has become a necessity, which before was just a hugepart of me. I do crave cake or ice cream, but am proud to say that I wont eatit. And that’s feeling it’s much more amazing then the actual sweet fix.Protein wise, having a difficult time getting the entire required portion. Ijust cannot stand it anymore. So Itry to consume them in different foods. And been able to eat better foods makesit easier. I do get full very fast. My family cannot believe how little I eatand wonder how I survive. The one thing I’ve noticed is that my stomach hurtswhen I don’t eat. I guess its normal not sure. Vitamins, I’ve been taking Adult gummies, they areyummy. I also take iron and Biotinfor my hair and skin. Thankfully I haven’t experience any hair loss. But I’vealways been on top of my Biotin and hair treatment. So that could be the mainreason.
Exercise has become my best friend. It makes me feel great,more energetic and it’s me time. Thisis where the transferred addictions come to place. But while am loving it, amnot making it an obsession. At the gym I don’t have to worry about what to wearnow that much of my clothing do not fit me any more. Leggings and Sweat pantshave become an everyday clothing choice. Been down 2 dress sizes is amazing. People’s complements are soencouraging and necessary to keep at it. My Family and friends have been soosupportive and loving.
The attention from the opposite sex is great also. It buildsup my self-steam and makes me happy. Since I am single and wanting to getmarried sometime in the future, it gives me hope and it works as a motivation.And even though am doing all this for me, not for the guys, its good to knowthat they are noticing all the effort.
In conclusion, yes this is a very difficult process, but itis manageable. It’s a matter of getting used to and excepting the changes thatwill come. As the weeks pass, you will see that all the sacrifices made werefor the best reason, for a better you. A better person, better mom, betterwife, better friend… Now life hasmore meaning.
In two months, I’ve lost 50 lbs. Down two dress sizes...
