It has been quite some time since I have blogged and I have thought to do it many time but wasn't sure what to write. I feel like I continue to struggle with the same old things and the past few days have been no different. I have been adding additional food in my diet and today I am not feeling so good about it. But when does it stop? Does it every stop?
Do I feel good about the way I look? yes Would I like to continue to improve? yes.
But I also want to live a little... Enjoy food... Is there a way to have both? I continue to struggle with these questions.
I have eaten quite a bit of food today and not even sure how to pick up the pieces and move on. I guess I will start by having a chicken salad for dinner what I planned on having and just go from here. I guess that is all I can do. Beating myself up over what has already occurred is useless and serves no purpose.
I pray and hope and some point I will find a happy medium along the way.

I there-I have come across your blog from time to time (startd "following" a little while back) but when I read your blog today-I just thought I'd write. Looking at your pics on the side-YOU'VE COME A LONG WAY!! No need to beat yourself up about what you ate today. Just start again-you have proven that you can go the distance. Finding a happy medium can be difficult-but it can be done. You just have to decide if you want to continue to improve or look like you do in the "before" picture.
Cheers and good luck! You can do it!

I know exactly how you feel about overeating sometimes! I tell myself what is the big deal-I rather be conscious of it and keep positive than think it's an all or nothing thing. Did I explain right?? Anyways it's all about balance isn't it, some days are better than others you'll be fine!!

Hello, just started following your blog and want to let you know you are not alone in your battles. The fact that you write about it is inspiration. I have lost 10 lbs in 2 months and although "I know" that is the way too go it can be dicouraging. Reading other women's blogs about their struggles and victory has been a HUGE help. You are doing great!

Glad your back posting that keeps you in the game, being accountable you know?

I think the best way is to find things you enjoy eating and make then healthier.
Do you have the book The Clean Eat Diet?

Good ideas there and I love to add cinnamon, curbs the sweet tooth for me.

Its never easy but if you really want it, find a way to have some of what you like, without beating yourself up. Now focus on the future and remember YOU can do it look how far you have come OMG!

Use that strength.
