Things I'm Grateful For #6
I forgot to post my "Things I'm Grateful For" yesterday. Well, not quite. I kind of posted it in the other blog.
I'm grateful that a week in (I know it's just a week), I have lost 2kgs. I've lost a cm off all of my measurements.
But I've lost more than that. Already, I'm forming new habits, to replace my old, unhealthy ones. I've stopped eating out of boredom. I've stopped (though this has been very, very difficult) my middle of the night eating, my biggest weakness and a habit that has formed over the past year or two.
I'm now thinking consciously about whether I'm hungry. About what I'm putting into my body. And about portion size. I'm learning not to trust my stomach to tell me it's full - as it rarely does until I've binged. Rather, I'm being cautious with my portion sizes and making myself stop. As much salad or steamed veges as I want, but minimal carbs (I still need some, but I'm eating Low GI) and smaller serves of protein.
I'm more active. I'm spending less time just sitting and more walking around, playing with the boys, bouncing on the trampoline or working out.
Speaking of which. I'm grateful for Ibuprofen.
