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.

    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.
