Happy Monday! I'm still feeling amazing and happy. I'm still not sure if it's the vitamins I've been taking, but it doesn't really matter as long as I keep feeling this good. I've been experimenting a little the last couple of days, trying to eat smaller meals and some snacks in between. I want to see if I can cut my calories down without feeling hungry or getting tired. I did 1700 calories the last two days, which is about 300 calories lower than I normally eat. And so far I feel ok, as long as I make sure to eat when I'm hungry or start feeling tired. If it starts to affect my good mood, I'll start eating more again.
I put on my fat pants today. I had one pair of jeans that fit me before I started, my biggest pair, my fat pants. I was even starting to get too big for them, honestly. But today I put them on, and I can't believe how big they are! I can literally pull them off without unbuttoning them. Cool! Technically I've only lost 5 pounds, but I can really see and feel a big difference, and it's just great. I'm motivated to keep working.
I read a cool article about goals today. It said that the most successful people actually don't make goals. Instead, they have a routine in place to try to make themselves better every day. So for an example, instead of saying you want to lose 50 pounds, you say I want to eat well and exercise every day to make my body stronger and healthier, and you focus on that everyday routine instead of the long term goal. I thought that was really cool and I'm going to try incorporating that into my life. After all, I need to live this life forever, not just until I lose 50 pounds. I really need to start getting into that mindset now. I'm not going back to eating junk food and feeling like crap.
Have a great night everyone!
