I cannot believe that this is almost over!

At the beginning of this program I was really excited to start a healthy lifestyle.  I have now become obsessive with exercising and everything that I put in my mouth. I look at as calories, do I really need that is what I now ask myself and the answer is usually no. If I get a salad at Subway I choose not to get crackers because that is extra calories. If I eat something that has a lot of grease I actually get nauseated afterwards. 

To keep us from going crazy during the week we have one cheat night whatever we have craved during the week we get to eat on Mondays after weigh in.  We have now cut our portions in to half of what we used to eat.  I usually don't feel good after I eat but that is my brain telling that is what my stomach wants and my stomach does not actually want it.  I have my stomach trained for the healthy stuff I have to get my brain trained now for the healthy stuff. 

I am not a great writer so I apologize for that, but hopefully you get the idea that I am trying to convey.  Eating unhealthy is a nasty habit just like smoking. If you can make it through the first month you can achieve your goal, just keep your eye on that goal and do not let anybody get you off track. 

By the way my weight loss goal is 30lbs hopefully I can make just 10 more.  Wish me luck!!!
