So as I move along in my weight loss journey I noticed it is becoming a lot more of a habit. I forgot my lunch today, and had to get Arby's. So I just had a sandwich. I chose the healthiest thing I could think of... roast chicken. I didn't know it had mayo on it, but it was okay, and didn't ruin my day. I didn't need two sandwiches, fries, or a turnover. When I started in April I would need at least two sandwiches to feel full. While eating my sandwich I knew there was more than enough calories to sustain me. I ate slow, and let my body process that I was eating. Guess what?! It worked! I knew I wasn't going to starve to death, or go hungry. I made sure to drink some water with my lunch, and it really helped. The funny thing was as I sat there eating it, all I could think of was how much I wanted my lunch that was at home. I just kept reminding myself soon enough I would be home, and could eat what I had packed for lunch (my lovely boyfriend put it in the fridge for me). So that's food zero points, me like a billion points.

I have lost 22 pounds. I am so proud of myself. I have only had a few cheat days on my diet, and I think it has really helped. I know that unhealthy food is a lot easier to get, and just because it's there doesn't mean I will never have it again. Before I used to think totally differently about food. I know now that if I eat like crap, I will feel like crap. It's as simple as that. I have energy now, and I am getting stronger. My job has helped trim me down a lot, and I know when I get laid off I will have to exercise a lot to make up for it. I will cross that bridge when it comes. I am so happy, and I hope I can stick with this for life.
