Yesterday I was so tired it was pathetic. I barely had the energy to crawl into bed. I think the problem was that I ate too little. I tried to keep my calories down below what spark suggests because, I dunno, because I want to lose weight. That's stupid of course. Well, I sure regretted my life choices when I couldn't do anything but sit on the couch all evening, dazed and listless. So today I ate more. I ate within my calories and I felt better. Sigh. Why is this so hard for me, to realize that I can't rush this journey, that it's slow by nature and that's ok. I also don't want to mess with my metabolism by eatting too little. I'm very active and I burn a lot of calories every day, and so my body needs to be fed. Period. I'm a work in progress. I hope that the longer I'm back at this, the easier it will become and the less I'll be eager to get the weight off quickly. My main goal right now needs to be treating myself well and learning to eat well everyday, especially on the hard days.

    Yep, like Sandytoes says, one day at a time, focus on healthy decisions for just today. We let our minds get into bad habits over time so it takes time to rewire. Remind yourself every single day that you need to fuel your body properly to function AND to lose weight.
