Health: Day 18

So, I weighed myself today and I've lost another pound.  So, I'm down a total of five pounds since starting this 18 days ago.  I'm so excited!

I'd LOVE to lose the weight faster, but again, I know that's neither healthy nor sustainable.  I am constantly reminding myself that "slow and steady" wins the race.

What I love the most about this process is that I don't feel deprived.  I still eat really tasty meals and snacks.  I make my own chocolate chip cookies!  I bake my own cashew muffins!  (Don't knock 'em 'til you try 'em!)  I had a strawberry smoothie over the weekend.  I've had cereals like Frosted Flakes and Honey Nut Cheerios!

Although I am NOT eating like a rabbit, I DO feel like I'm restricted...and I am.  I can't expect a different result if I don't make a change.  And, it's ME that wants the change.  I'm not changing because I was told to.  I'm not changing because of anyone else, but me.  So, I'm more willing to deal with the restriction because I WANT the change.

So, here's to additional weight loss and feeling my best.

Be open to what comes.
