I have completed Day 6 and 7 of the Shred. I am completely happy with the results I am getting and that motivates me even more to keep going. I did weigh myself, but I'm not telling you how much I lost until Day 10.
We had my neice's birthday party this weekend and Cecil and I had a date night last night. It has been an exciting weekend. But I am happy to say that I didn't blow my diet. I passed on the birthday cake and chips and dip, and had fruit instead. For dinner on our date, I had one tiny bite of bread and only ate 1/2 of my portion of food I ordered. I ate no appetizer and dessert and had Unsweetened Iced Tea instead of Dr. Pepper or Sweet Tea. Last night as Cecil and I were talking over dinner, I told him that I'm starting to change the way I think about food. Yes, that yummy warm bread and butter would be soooo good, but only for about 30 seconds, then it's gone. The results from making good healthy decisions last much longer and are much more rewarding in the long run. I am smack in the middle of making some really good changes, and eventually there will be a time to indulge and eat just because it's good( just not very often). But that time is not now.
So for any of you out there who are also on a journey to a healthier you, keep at it. The benefits are much better than that piece of cake.
