I made it to the first milestone. The first 10 pounds are finally gone. That is 1/5 or 20 percent of my goal, finally, finally gone. I'm now at a dangerous point where I've started playing with my program. I have to nip this in the bud because this is when I get derailed and more times than not lose the game. Not this time. The stakes are too high at this point in my life.
So I am recommitting today to the DASH diet as it is designed, because it works for me. It is simple, now that I've been through (I think it's 5 weeks.) I have my daily menus typed out with check boxes so I can see exactly what I can have and mark it off as I go. I have my shopping lists organized so there isn't a lot of "thinking" or "wanting" or "craving" taking place.
All those things get me in trouble. It's my Inner Brat wanting to be spoiled with comfort foods. I just have to explain to her that I'd much rather spoil her with new, skinny clothes instead. Maybe that will appease her and get her to keep with me on this journey.
Forward! To the next 20 percent mark!!
