6 weeks out today and back in the game.



I am 6 weeks out, trying more and more foods and not really having difficulty with digestion. I have had a poor appetite and my taste buds have been off, everything has tasted bland and not near as good as I seem to remember or believe. I had only lost 19 lbs and was feeling rather disappointed in myself and the process. Then I realized I have been eating, not like a healthy life style but as if I were recuperating from a surgery and just making do

waiting for everything to return to normal. I had not been getting in my protein. My water intake was not adequate, my carb ingestion way too high.

I had to stop and think duh.......this is not waiting to get back to normal, this is my new normal and this is for life! What the hell did I do this for if I was not going to develop the healthy habits I had planned on.

Light bulb moment. For a smart woman I sometimes take awhile to get it.


So yesterday and thus far today, made my water requirements, protein is up, carbs down and exercised too!!!!!!! look out baby I am back in the game and I intend to be a winner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good for you for having that ah hah moment. At least it didn't take you 6 months to realize you have to make a new normal. Glad you're back on the wagon and hope your loss picks up. Good luck!
