I'm stressed, y'all. Not only is life crazy at the moment, but I weighed in today and it looks as if my weight has sky-rocketed back to a pretty scary number.
It's been such a fast gain this time that I know if I keep on going, my weight would be back to 220 by summer. So...
Since I don't want that to happen, I will be starting to really think about health again.
Because, right now, I'm mostly concerned with my health. Yes, I still desire to be thin, not gonna lie.
But it's not my top priority anymore. I want to stop the Yo-yo cycle for real.
I promised myself this before, at the beginning of this blog. But somehow, I've gotten back into the yo-yo cycle.
And I know that it's not healthy. I know it's healthier to be obese and stay obese than it is to yo-yo up and down for a decade. I need to get out of the yo-yo cycle.
I'm ready to focus on healthy eating.
One reason that I'm convinced the program that I want to try is Eat to Live is that I'm convinced that Dr. Fuhrman is not telling me what I WANT to hear. Nope, he's telling me what I NEED to hear, which is that in order to get over the addiction to less nutrient dense foods (cookies, chips, ice cream, etc) and in order to achieve optimal health, I need to eat mostly plants and mostly whole foods.
I'm ready to take the plunge.
Thanks for following me on this journey!
And I'm not quite ready to share the number on the scale with you guys yet. Just know that it's pretty bad. And that I'm not sorry to have stepped on it. Also, it didn't depress me. It just made me realize that I need to stop the binges and start Eat to Live before I gain back everything.
P.S. Please keep my doggie sister Rose in your thoughts and prayers. She's not doing so well.
