I just recorded a video to post on my other blog. After watching it a couple times I realized that my face is just so puffy. I don't even look like myself. Of course I look like the person everyone else knows, but when I look in the mirror, its not me. Other people look at me all day long and they are none the wiser at what I should look like. I should carry a mirror around and force myself to look into it every time I feel tempted to stray from my plan.
Do you avoid mirrors like I do? Unless I am putting makeup on or brushing my teeth, I try to avoid those things that show a reflection of someone I have become on the outside. I long for the day that I can look in the mirror and see that skinny face again.
Today went well. After calculating my calories I think I am just under 1400 for the day which is OK. I try to stay at or below 1400 (per the Mayo clinic diet.)
Its getting easier and easier to eat healthier. I do find that every week or two weeks I tend to eat something that wouldn't normally be my every day food...like enchiladas or pizza per say. (grin) I have learned not to beat myself up over it. It doesn't happen every day and its part of normal living to eat some fun foods. Life is not all about veggies and chicken, I'm convinced of that!!! As long as the pounds are still coming off.....im good!
