Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas 
I hope today finds you surrounded by loved ones
good food
and happy and healthy family members 
A day to not just rip open presents 
but to be grateful for all we have been given   
 and remember the reason for the season 
For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to be its judge, but to be its savior.

Declaration of freedom

The last 45 days have been VERY eye opening 
like mind boggling eye opening 
like life changing eye opening 
I started 45 days ago here 
 yeah not soo good 
but with coaching, accountability, support and 
a SIMPLE plan of attack I am here as of this morning 
that's 14.2 pounds!!! 
like can I get a WOW!!!! 
I am actively working on addressing my binge eating 
reading daily 
current read: 
and when I read stuff like this... I have cried! 

I WILL NOT go back to the binge behaviors 
I am done with the closet eating 
it is so destructive to my body and state of mind 
it hurts my confidence 
this book is an awesome read!!!! 
I feel like such a weight has been taken off my shoulders 
crazy that I carried that burden of binging for so many years! 
I am declaring:

working out 6 days a week 
2 shakes, 3 meals 
being mindful of foods that are "not on the plan" 
3 liters of water a day 
getting good sleep 
daily morning reading 
daily morning journaling 
staying connected to support 
staying in my own lane
yep it's working for me 
keeping on keeping on 
What I am not doing: 
using My fitness pal 
not weighing myself daily (only Mondays and Fridays) 
not searching for any of the latest NEW diet fad 
not comparing my progress to yours
because you may be in Chapter 10 and I am in Chapter 2 (yeah get me?) 
today is a day off 
chilling like a villian

My truth

I am learning, 
yes even old dogs can learn new tricks 
I have gone 30 days with ZERO binge 
no late night bread and butter ... multiple slices 
no gorging on chips
I have stayed on course 
and followed a plan 
and it has stuck 
2 shakes, 3 meals, 5-6 days in the gym 
and I am feeling GREAT 
down over 10 pounds this last month 
so excited to see what the next month, and the next and the next will bring 
I am falling in love with feel GREAT 
OMG I sound like an infomercial 
oh well 
this is my truth

Become obsessed

I am learning 
this is LONG term 
not a race 
a journey, a life time adventure 
now I am not stupid 
I knew that 
kinda sorta, but feeling GOOD daily 
for the last few weeks has 
made SUCH a difference 
yesterday I grabbed chips 
yep... potato chips 
the beginning of a binge for me normally 
NOPE.... tossed the open bag away
hubster DOES NOT need them 
I don't need or want them 
ate a huge bowl of butternut squash and zucchini zoodles 
and yeah no... I had no more crazy cravings all night 
I took an action 
I made a choice 
not huge for some, but for me HUGE 
keep my eyes on me 
walk my own path 
and be there for whomever needs me 
I am becoming obsessed with this journey 
of FEELING good from the inside out 

oodles, tootles of zoodles
