I am still following my no-more-diets mentality and doing really well now. It can be difficult with all the Facebook posts regarding people on diets, losing weight, working out, getting "healthy". I put healthy in quotes because not everyone has the same idea to what healthy means. Most people equate healthy with weight loss and being skinny. Sorry, not me. I am trying to eat well, get out more, and walk more; but I am doing it all for me; for my own health reasons which do not include weight loss at all. People may find this hard to believe but after years and years of dieting and weighing. Losing weight and putting it and more back on. Feeling sad, depressed, and like a failure. I have had enough of that. I no longer weigh myself. My weight no longer tells me if I've failed or succeeded. I look at how I feel instead and I'm feeling happier. It is taking time and I do have set-backs but I'm still here and still pushing on.
Supper last night was a variety of veggies and some store-bought chicken. Hubby isn't fond of eggplant, which I love, so tried it in Shake & Bake for a change. It was pretty good and Hubby ate it so win win :)
Don't care about the calorie count or the portion size. Don't care if it isn't vegan. Don't care that is contains processed food. Don't care it isn't all organic. Don't care it isn't oil free. Don't care it isn't gluten-free.
I've spent too much of my life caring about what I ate and how I looked and what I weighed and what people would think and how they would see me, and not nearly enough time just living and being happy. Living in the moment and not worrying about the weight and food issues. That's where I strive to be now :)
