Stop right there! Drop the snack!

Well, the first two weeks of this mess, I've been stress eating, and emotional eating, and eating because I was not necessarily bored but not able to go out anywhere. Oh, the snacks that we had in the house...these were things we hadn't bought in a couple years! Yeah, we might buy ONE Hostess Cupcake package and split it, but this time we bought a big ol' box from Sam's Club! (so bad....)
I only ate two...packages.
And I gained a few pounds too. Could've been water weight, but I don't care, I don't want to see the pounds increasing!
My face does look puffy and I hate that. I was finally getting more of a heart shape to my chubby face and I was so proud of that. So...I need to get back to where I was. I can't let this madness win!
So this week I took back my control. I limited my portions. I still had a dessert, and a few days I still had a little bag of chips (we bought WISE chips this time, and I was surprised to see how few ingredients they have. I'm going to have to check and see if they have less than other chips.) and today...I LOST 2.5lbs!
I'm still 2lbs heavier than I was at my lowest so far, but I'm not mad about that. I'm just getting back to it and getting it done.
The secret? I have to DRINK MY WATER... I haven't been doing that lately. I barely drink 3 glasses a day, I should be drinking 6-8+
Seriously, the water makes all the difference. It makes you feel full and not want to stress eat.

I am down another pound and it feels damn good!

Down another pound. I am the lowest I have been in maybe 5 years? And it feels damn good.
One pound might not sound like a lot, but it really is. It doesn't just mean 1 more pound lost, but it means all the other pounds I've lost have stayed off.
It means that I can have a day where I eat something I enjoy, like a cookie (or two) or a cinnamon roll, and not dive off the deep end and eat that way for every single meal.
It means that I CAN DO THIS.
And that is everything.
I was supposed to have my physical earlier this week, but the office had to cancel. Is it weird that I was actually looking forward to it? And I was disappointed when it was cancelled? Is it even weirder that I ENJOY stepping on the doctors office scale now? Instead of fearing how far UP she will be moving the weights I am not eager to see how much lower she has to move them since my last visit. I am proud of my accomplishments, and I should be.

Why it's called a Healthy Lifestyle

Why we call it learning a Healthy Lifestyle

Because sometimes as adults we need to re-learn how to eat correctly. Just because we eat what we like doesn't mean it should cause us to gain 10lbs like it's nothing. And trust me, I've been there.
Learning to eat healthy means making good choices every single day. It's not a diet. It's not never eating a piece of bread again. It's just making good choices.
In the last year I lost AND KEPT OFF 30lbs. That is the big part for me - keeping it off.
I wanted to lose 50lbs, and that didn't happen, but I kept off all that I lost, and I have to see that as a positive. I kept it off eating stuffing at Thanksgiving. I kept it off eating cookies and potatoes at Christmas. I kept it off over a bad three weeks in February that happened right at Valentine's day (so there was chocolate in the house, which we never have in the house). I was depressed and sad, and I ate. I ate EVERYTHING I could find. I wasn't proud of m…

Apple Cider Vinegar - have you tried it?

I jumped on the bandwagon and ordered Goli Apple Cider Vinegar gummies. I have tried to use AVC in the past, but couldn't stand the taste. (I tried it in tea, apple juice, and water, and nope, nope, and nope) I've recently run out of my daily supplement of Green Coffee Bean (GCB) and shipping is taking forever unfortunately. Well, over the last week I have noticed that I can't eat enough; I am so snacky and so hungry (more than usual). By Wednesday, I had had enough. I was eating too much for no reason. And just like my Nunna used to say, at night when I was watching tv, I wasn't hungry, but I was craving to "chew on something".

Granted, stress has been a huge factor this past week, and it will stay a factor, and let's face it, stress is always around us. I have to react better to it. And if ACV can help me not stress eat, I'll take it! 

I talked to a few folks who say this ACV works and tastes good. I won't say it is "yummy" (my probio…
