For the past week and a half I have been eating very healthily, no take away and all my meals have been low sodium, low fat and low or no carb based. As well as those changes, I've also switched to soy milk as regular milk makes me sick..I've known that for a while I just never cut it out for long enough to feel a difference. I haven't touched it since I started my healthy eating plan and my stomach is loving me for it! I've been eating plenty of fruit and vegetables, nuts and seeds, proteins in moderation and at the correct portion size. I've even stuck to drinking plenty of and ONLY water aswell! That was another thing I needed to change... I've knocked out all soft drinks and sugary drinks out of my diet for the time being, and all in an all I think I've been doing pretty well!
:( But I tell myself, and this is the truth, that it was one minor set back, and there was nothing to stop me going back to my eating plan in the morning. I can't refuse myself everything for the rest of my life, that's just silly. But I do need to learn that the choices I make are going to affect me, and I want them to affect me for the better.
