My first blog AKA Wondering when the bubble will burst

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

After so many years of yo-yo dieting I wonder if it is possible that this can continue to work. This is the first time I have really "changed my lifestyle" and for that reason it does not feel like a diet. I have lost weight by eating more frequently and trading in fast food for real food. It is amazing how wonderful grilled veggies can taste. The salmon I had as a rare treat has become a more frequent luxury. Imagine that- eating your favorite foods AND being healthy. It has been a bit of a ride, but I feel so good about things. Now that little voice in the back of my head starts to pester me... "can this really last?" For the first time in my life I think it can... There is so much different this time. No diet pills, no crazy restrictions, and no shame.... I could really learn to live this way.

    I know! Isn't it great not to be dieting anymore?

    One of the many good things about Spark People is that you get to realize that there's really nothing to "burst." If you have a minor setback, you just get back on track! Go for it, and don't be afraid!

    You're right, it's not a diet it's a lifestyle!

    Just take everything one day at a time, or even smaller chunks if you have to, and you'll get to your goal. :)

    Try not to listen to the negative voice of doubt. Instead remind yourself about how good feeling healthy feels.
